i have to admit, i struggle with knowing i am valued by God and, yes, satan does tempt me in this area. thinking on this just this morning, i thought of brooke. i wondered if brooke has this problem as others "watch" her or "talk" about her when she is out in public. deep down though i know she's a pretty secure little lady!
she knows the One who made her, loves her, and calls her by name.
brooke, yet again you have taught me a big lesson today on being valued. i love you!
