You’re Everything I Hoped For

You are so beautiful to me. Can’t you see? You’re everything I hoped for. You’re everything I need. You are so beautiful to me. *

I had an interesting experience with God recently. I was sitting with Him and I began to see some things about myself I might have done differently had I created myself. Some were physical changes. Some were personality changes. I didn’t even realize that I felt this way deep down inside.

As I came to the realization that there were things I guess I didn’t like about myself, I also realized that I was exactly what He was “hoping” for.

When a couple find that they are expecting a new little one, they have hopes, yes about the child’s future, but also hopes like “I hope he has your eyes” or “I hope she has your smile.”

God said to me, “When you were being formed, I was ‘hoping’ for a petite little hispanic girl with dark curly hair and big black eyes.”

In that instant I felt loved, accepted and beautiful. I was everything He hoped for.

When you were being formed, He was ‘hoping’ for you. You are so beautiful to Him.

I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well. (Psalms 139:14, KJV)

You are so Beautiful to Me

The other day as I was just walking through my house, minding my own business, I suddenly had the thought, “I am someone special because I am special to God.” No person can tell me otherwise. No person’s opinion can make me anything less, for I am special to the King of Kings.

He’s the King of the Universe and He hears and answers my prayers.

He shed His blood for me.

He created the sun, the moon and the stars and He likes to sit with me in the mornings. He likes to hear from me and speak to me throughout the day and into the night. I am special because I am His.

You may have a person, or people in your life, who think you are someone special, but sometimes that can change. But God doesn’t change. You are and always will be special to Him.

As I write this post, I am listening to Phil Driscoll sing to the Lord, “You are so beautiful to me.” As my heart and my lips lift these words in love and in praise to my King, I hear Him say to me, “You are so beautiful to Me.”

Who can ask for anything more, than to be loved by the King Who created all things. You are loved. You are beautiful. You are special to Him.

…his banner over me is love. (Song of Solomon 2:4, NIV)

Arise, come, my darling; my beautiful one, come with me. (Song of Solomon 2:13, NIV)

…let me see your face, let me hear your voice; for your voice is sweet, and your face is lovely. (Song of Solomon 2:14, Amplified)

My beloved is mine, and I am his… (Song of Solomon 2:16, KJV)
