“If a man has a hundred sheep and one of them gets lost, what will he do? Won’t he leave the ninety-nine others in the wilderness and go to search for the one that is lost until he finds it? And when he has found it, he will joyfully carry it home on his shoulders. When he arrives, he will call together his friends and neighbors, saying, ‘Rejoice with me because I have found my lost sheep.’ In the same way, there is more joy in heaven over one lost sinner who repents and returns to God than over ninety-nine others who are righteous and haven’t strayed away! – Luke 15:4-7
It’s why He delights when a new child is added to His already demanding and flawed brood.
Let yourself recognize and remember today, that you are more than your list of ailments. You are more than an inconvenience, more than a problem, more than any mistake you could possibly ever make.
So much more.
And just like in this video, His eyes alight with each look to you, no matter the circumstances He finds you in… and it was this way long before you were reborn to Him.
