Five Minute Friday-Last

I am use to being the last one. Last child born to my parents, last one picked to play in any games at school, just like Ruldolph the reindeer. He was made fun of due to his bright, shiny red nose, I was made fun of due to my big fat stomach. It really use to bother me always being last, everyone's after thought. But, not any more. God created me, so He could love me, and, have fellowship with me. He loves all of us, as if there were just one of us. In my Father's eyes, I am not first, nor am I last. I am simply His beloved daughter.

So true Denise. Remember too the Bible verse which says "So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be called, but few chosen." Matthew 20:16. So it's okay to be last here so you can be first of our Father. Hugs. xx

Indeed you are. One is never last in God's eyes - just loved.

Denise, you are often first to offer encouragement. I see your comments all over the blog world and it's so special. You are special. I am reminded of Matthew 19:30 and I wrote about that on my FMF post today.

Blessings and love,
Debbie

Hi Denise! I used to be 'last' too. But I feel, like you, that I am first with who matters, Our Father.

I saw someone else post Matthew 20:16 and that's what I thought of too.
You are just the way God wanted you to be. You are beautiful and precious in His sight.
