"Because your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you." Psalm 63:3
When I look at the life of David, I see a man who was motivated to pursue God. When I read his writings, I see a man whose heart was laid bare - nothing was hidden, for he knew his God sees everything and He was sovereign over it all. David's vulnerability and transparency in the Scriptures have always resonated with me - he genuinely trusts God and knew he was loved by Him.
His relationship with God was more meaningful and more valuable to him than his own life. Charles Spurgeon said this, "To dwell with God is better than life at its best; life at ease, in a palace, in health, in honor, in wealth, in pleasure; yea, a thousand lives are not equal to the eternal life which abides in Jehovah's smile."
May this necklace be a reminder that you are Christ' beloved; valued, cherished, and seen. There is nothing you can do to make Him love you any more or less; Your relationship with God is not dependent upon your performance but rests in Christ' faithfulness. You bear the mark of your Maker and in Christ, have been brought into the family of God as Jesus is - fully loved and accepted.
