When Jesus was baptized, the spirit of God settled on him like a dove and voiced, "This is my beloved Son in whom I am well-pleased." Today, feel that same love and blessing settling on you: "You are my beloved daughter / son in whom I am well pleased." Accept this divine affirmation and approval and affection.
