What God believes about us
Is really all that counts,
Not what you think, not what I think,
Is really of account.
We must choose facts not feelings,
God's Word should be our base.
His Word's designed to lift us up
And never to debase.
For only His opinion counts,
He lifts us to our best,
For, after all, if He loves us
Why care about the rest?
"Long ago even before he made the world, God chose us to be his very own, through what Christ would do for us; he decided then to make us holy in his eyes, without a single fault--we who stand before him covered with his love. His unchanging plan has always been to adopt us into his own family by sending Jesus Christ to die for us. And he did this because he wanted to!" Ephesians 1:4-5 (The Living Bible)
