I woke up today with the thought of inking those words in a small font on my back - to remind me. That if I ever feel lost again, I would still know who I am: I am His beloved. He loves me, He sees me, He cares for me, He made me... with a plan in mind, no doubt. But rather than branding my back, physically ageing over time, I want these words to be etched on my heart, my soul, my mind. I want my self-image to be so intertwined with this feeling that knowing and being His beloved becomes conviction in the face of all ungodly perceptions of myself. Knowing that my God fights for me; being mindful of His presence and purposes in my life... I need only be still.
