I love the word “beloved.” It appears through scripture when God speaks to His Bride, to His church. What an incredibly intimate and romantic God, that He would name you, me, us “beloved.” I love the way is sounds when I hear Him whisper it to me. I love the way it feels when I read it in scripture. It literally means “to be greatly loved, dear to the heart.”
We are greatly loved by the God and Creator of the universe. We are held dearly to the tender heart of Christ.
An ever-present desire and prayer of my heart it to be romanced by Him, to know the endless love that He freely offers. Salvation, redemption, restoration–it’s all there for the taking. Life is in His hands and they are open.
What an incredible truth to cling to.
