Loved Babbie Mason's insight
February 21, 2012
It's time that women stop falling for the media hype about what makes them valuable in our society, but it is difficult to get around the billboards, magazine advertisements and television shows marketing the value of appearance over everything else. Women are led to believe that love is based on the way their clothes fit their frame or how they wear their hair or how smooth their skin is. But God places value and worth in who we are and how He created us.
If you've ever thought about whether God loves you or if you really matter to Him, then following the 21 day journey in "Embraced by God" by Babbie Mason will lead you to a better understanding of what it means to be loved by God. There are seven themes each consisting of three days (chapters) which are filled with scripture and Mason's personal accounts as they pertain to each day's subject.
The "Embrace Your Day" at the end of each day offers the opportunity to think about God's love, read about God's love in the scripture, pray about God's love and be about God's love. Following Mason's guidelines will demonstrate how very much God actually does love you, that you are in His eternal plan and that you are His favorite.
"Embraced by God" reads like a conversation between two friends. Mason's warmth and compassion shine through as she demonstrates how to celebrate who we are and whose we are. While the media wants women to believe they should look and act a certain way to be valued, Mason wants to show them that God accepts them just the way we are because He created them.
The need of women to be valued and loved is the focus of "Embraced by God" and Mason's sensitivity leads women to understand who they are and what their purpose is.
