Fully Known, Fully Loved

What a strange yet wonderful reality, to be fully known, every detail - from before conception on. (Ps. 139:13-16) He knows me much better than I know myself. He's not mystified, confused or put off by my shortcomings. He REALLY "gets it" when it comes to who I REALLY am! Yet He loves me! That's absolutely amazing!! Why?
Because I know enough about myself to be thoroughly unimpressed with myself. There's a laundry list of things I'd like to change or that I wish could be lifted from my life. That's exactly when I am in the "optimal condition for being filled with (His) peace." In fact, each time I struggle with "feelings of inadequacy" I can unload the burden of my weaknesses through honest confession. I lean harder into Him. He holds tighter onto me. Suddenly, I discover He's hugged the heaviness right out of me!
Sharing His Hugs...dmc


  1. It's nice to know there is Someone who totally understands me, and still loves me:),but at the same time, that is sooooo hard for me to comprehend!

  2. I am thoroughly delighted that Jesus knows and understands me…because many times I don’t know myself or what is going on inside me. Currently, I am struggling with grief; the loss of my daddy, the sudden and unexpected loss of my best friend in high school and the loss of a relationship—all in a two week period of time. Sometimes I think I am going crazy, sometimes I just want to withdraw and isolate, sometimes I am angry for no apparent reason…and through it all, He “fully knows and understands me”. I CAN unload the burden of my grief, inadequacies and weaknesses on Him and He continues to love me anyway. And in my emptiness, He wraps me up, fills me with His peace, extends His grace and gives me a desire to continue on in His presence. What a HUGE blessing to be known and loved unconditionally by HIM!

  3. There are times I feel I have no one to talk to and then I realize that God is waiting to listen! What an amazing Father to be willing to carry all my burdens for me.

    I love your comment Dawn Marie about "hugging the heaviness right out of me".!
