36 In Weekend Whispers

The Weekend Brew: You Are Chosen!

You have captivated my heart, my sister, my bride; you have captivated my heart with one glance of your eyes, with one jewel of your necklace.
(Song of Solomon 4:9)

Beloved One,

Do you know how much you are loved by God?  He desires you.  Every time you look at Him, His heart skips a beat.  The King is enthralled by your beauty!

I have often wondered how God sees me.  This painting came out of my time with the Lord through the Song of Solomon a few years ago.  God took me through a personal journey of affirming my identity and how He sees me.  I wanted to share this with you today, my friends. This is how God sees YOU!

May you rest in knowing that you are significant, beautiful, loved, anointed and chosen.  You are His.  He Has chosen YOU and nothing will ever separate you from His love!

Now it’s your turn to share encouragement here at The Weekend Brew.
1.  Share a post, photo, scripture — anything that breathes life and encourages.  (Please only link one post.  Multiple posts from the same site will be deleted.)

    Oh friend, we had the same subject on our hearts today!

    I absolutely LOVE your painting!

    I can’t remember how many hours you are away from me, but if you can ever catch the church I linked with at the bottom of my post — you will be blessed. Their worship is so sweet. Last night God’s presence was so sweet and weighty during their service that it came through the computer screen.

    Love and hugs to you!

      Oh girl, first all I love when God shoots right through the computer screen and zaps me. It happens often when I am watching iHOP worship. I’ll have to check out the church you mentioned on line. And the title of your post today had me singing!!! Love you!

      Yes Ma’am I did! I am a newbie artist, don’t know what I am doing really. I did this piece at home, but I get to paint in church during worship. Mostly with my hands (I like to feel the color and movement) and well, I am learning a lot, especially how to have the Holy Spirit guide me as I go. I have a new piece from our conference on my FB wall. Will post a better shot soon!

    The knowledge that we’re chosen by our God, the creator of all that is and was and is to come is mind blowing. And humbling.
