What I really want to share today though is about my Chloe. She has to do journal entries every day (M-F) and turn them in to her teacher. They must be 60 words and the teacher comes up with the topic. Today's topic was "I like who I am because..." Her answer has really blessed my heart and I want to share it with you.
I like who I am because God knows everything about me. He knows when I am going to win my soccer game in the spring. God loves me so much that He told His son Jesus to take my place on the cross, that is how I know that He loves me so much. He even knows how many pieces of hair are on my head. That is why I like who I am.
I have to add that she wrote this tonight after coming home from her last soccer game which they lost, and they haven't won a game all year. In spite of being so discouraged about that, she still knows that her identity lies in Christ and not in her soccer record or anything else. I can only pray that that peace will reside in her through everything she encounters. I have been learning from my sweet Chloe for 8 1/2 years now and I pray that the LORD will continue to teach me many more valuable truths from her precious innocence for many years to come.
