              Knowing that God, the Author and Creator of the universe, became a puny human, served mankind, and died for you and me, so that we could live through His rising from the dead: That, my friend, is incredible and everlasting favor for every human being on the face of this planet :)

                    “You know you’re favored by God when He calls you friend when all other friends have left.” Well isn’t this the truth. How awesome it is to know that God calls us friend. It’s very much undeserved and humbling.

                        When He does something so amazing and wonderful that anyone you tell refuses to believe it because they think that it’s impossible and that he would never do something like that.

                          Thanks for the post. I will add mine now, if I may? You KNOW You are favored by God when He keeps sticking “little reminders” such as this blog post in your face, to REMIND YOU NOT to let ANYONE tell you or make you feel(most of all YOURSELF),that you are “WORTHLESS”.but above that even , that you are worthless TO GOD. I am favored so deeply by God, because sometimes He sends faceless angels like yourself as a reminder: GOD DON’T MAKE NO JUNK! God Bless you and thanks
