Becca just graduated from Cedarville University with a degree in Graphic Design. She decided to extend her internship past X Project until December.
One of my the most memorable moments from this summer was the first women’s night, when we were handed a list of 35 biblical truths about our identity in Christ. I saw how impactful those reminders were and started picking one everyday and passing them out at the office, or what we like to call “Cubieland.” My personal favorite was the following:
According to God you can say “I am perfectly loved.” Romans 8:38-39 says “for I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither present nor future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all of creation, will be able to separate you from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Ephesians 5:1 says “Be imitators of God therefore, as dearly loved children of God.” God loves you. The creator of all splendors of the universe has looked at you, flaws and all, and loves you. There is nothing, nothing at all, that you could ever do to make God love you any less. Also on the flip side we don’t earn God’s love either so there is nothing we can do to make him love us any more. Isn’t that just absolutely amazing? God’s love is a perfect love. God looks at you and smiles. God loves it when you talk to him. It makes God happy to see you happy. God hurts when you hurt. God would give up anything to be with you. In fact, he already did; He gave up his own son because he loved you, yes you, so much and wanted you to have a way to be with him. That is love, true love. Truer than any love in any fairytale and it’s God’s love for you. Whenever you feel unloved just remember how much God loves you.
My purpose in writing these was to encourage the other interns in the office, but I ended up encouraging myself as well. As I searched to discover what each verse meant I also found that I was coming to understand the Lord I serve a little better.
We serve an amazing God who likes to teach us things when we don’t expect it. I excitedly look forward to what he’s going to teach me and how he’s going to pull me closer to him as I move forward in life.
