Know Your Are Beloved
Story Behind The Story
In 2016, I unexpectedly woke up one day with the idea for a children's book on my heart. This was completely unanticipated as I had never previously desired or attempted to write any book, let alone a children's one. The concept wasn't premeditated; it appeared suddenly and I typed it out as fast as it came to me. I recognized this as one of the many divine inspirations God had directly bestowed upon me to share with others.
A clear message through story form, He earnestly desires for us to recognize this truth within ourselves. Surprisingly, it wasn't until December 1st, 2023, that I was reminded of having typed these words seven years ago—a piece of writing that had slipped into the recesses of my memory. I found it instantly...Amid the loss of numerous files on my more recent computer earlier this year that was rendered unusable due to a hailstorm. It forced me to operate from an older Mac Book Pro, a device I had to dust off before putting it to use. Reflecting on this twist of fate, it becomes clear to me why I was directed to use this particular computer instead of my newer one.
I can not ignore God's divine call compelling me to share this very special message through this story to you all. This is a message from God, directly for you. He is the originator. He desires more than anything that you understand your perfection and how you are fully furnished with everything necessary to fulfill your purpose and above all, He wants you to recognize His immense love for you! You are His cherished and beloved. May blessings be upon you and remember, you are valuable, precious, and incredibly loved!
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah29:11
Discovery Of a Beloved
Long long ago…far beyond the reach of the skies and well below where the heavens embraced our atmosphere, was a galaxy filled with a family of glimmering stars. Each one with unique brilliance and breathtaking beauty and could be seen as far as one's eye could see. They shimmered radiantly as their light would dazzle and dance painting across the night sky.
Except for one, who was known as the tiniest and most insignificant star of all. She remained dull with no luster and had not light to show. Because of this, the star remained without a name and often out of sight. While her brothers and sisters would boost and brag about who out-shined the rest. Because she didn’t shine like they did, they would often referred to her as unimportant, pointless and a useless waste of space. She usually could be found left to herself and forgotten about, isolated from the others.
Often in her silence, behind the scenes, she would watch gleefully to marvel in such wonder and in delight of her brothers and sisters as they dazzled in such vibrant light, many of them would go on to forming famous consolations known across the lands. How she wished she could be like her siblings and to be given such an admired and purposeful light.
One day there was a whirl of excitement that filled the universe in song. A single star was to be chosen for a very important role. So important in fact that one would become infamously known for all eternity. It would require only the purest and brightest of light which purpose was to announce the coming of a king. This was no ordinary king for it was for the King of all Kings…the savior of the world and all of it’s creation.
There was enormous preparation that came from each star as they worked on perfecting their light to shine the brightest and purest. Finally, the day arrived that a star was to be chosen. Each star lite up the universe with immense spectacular wonder…all but one that is…the young nameless dull star that could not shine who hid in the complete darkness of the night.
All of a sudden a booming voice appeared that startled the young star. A voice that questioned…“Why star do you hide and not join your family in delight of trying to claim such a magnificent role?”
The little star appeared meek and shy to respond in a quiet voice that was close to a whisper. “Such a role for me would be impossible for I am the nameless star that serves no purpose because I am dull and have no light.”
The voice responded, “ For am I your creator, the creator of all things! For you I have made a star and I make no mistake. You have been created and designed perfectly and given everything you need to shine for all the heavens and earth to be able to see and delight in.
At that moment the star instantly knew the truth of His words. She forced away all the lies of the darkness that surrounded her. The lies that were given to her by her siblings and peers that she was useless and a waste of space were now vanished.
She immediately felt change inside of her. She was breaking free of all that held her light captive. In that instance an immense burst of light shinned out from her…brighter than the wings of any angel, in such splendor that it lite up the universe and the world, displayed in a perfect miraculous form. This super natural heavenly light beamed from her and was as vibrant and as pure as new fallen snow.
In that moment she became the star she was mean to be. She would become known for all of eternity. She would lay down her light for the world to see and lead the way to the birth of our heavenly Savior and King of the world, our Jesus Christ, Son of God.
She would be named the Star of Bethlehem and would be treasured and sought out in admiration of such beauty and be loved. For the first time she knew who she was a star made perfectly in God, her creator’s eyes to be adored by all that knew of her.
