Precious Thoughts

20 Oct

When Julia went away to school, she was so focused on fitting in with others, she wasn’t thinking much about her relationship with God. Even so, God was still thinking about her, reaching out to her, and bringing people like Gary, Karen, and even Gretchen into her life to draw her back to Him.

Did you know that God is thinking about you, too? In fact, He thinks more thoughts about you than the grains of sand!

Psalm 139:17-18 (NLT) How precious are your thoughts about me, O God. They cannot be numbered! I can’t even count them; they outnumber the grains of sand…

Visualize an entire beach of sand. Now imagine that all those grains of sand represent thoughts that God has about you. Pretty amazing, isn’t it?

Did you notice in the above verse what kind of thoughts He has concerning you? Not disappointed thoughts. Not angry or frustrated thoughts. His thoughts are precious ones. God truly loves you. How awesome that the Creator of the Universe continually has you on His mind!
