I feel I am not alone in my feelings that I think sometimes God just puts up with me.
There should be no reason why the Lord should take pleasure in me. I have messed up more times fallen harder, abused grace more than most. Yes I get that God loved me enough to forgive me, but that He would take delight in me, no way.
Our attitude toword our Heavenly Father is much like this comic:
You have been adopted into His family. You are not just another human you are his precious, beloved child.
He delights in you.
Jesus didn't die on the cross to show your sin, he removed your sin to show your value!
Live knowing God moved heaven and earth to get YOU in Him family. He now looks at you and says with a smile on His face, "My son. My daughter."
"I will rejoice over then to do them good." -Jeremiah 32:41.
"Go to thy rest rejoicing, for thou are no desolate wanderer, but beloved child, watched over, cared for, supplied, and defended by thy Lord." -C. H. Spurgeon
Rest and rejoice, you are not longer a stranger but you called beloved. He does rejoice in you. He sees your true value"
