May the words I believe Father God would love to speak to you — may they unshake the deep places of your heart and speak life to you (don’t miss all the verses at the end of it too) …
You are mine. Always. From the very beginning, you were mine. Before I fashioned the earth, you were mine. I thought of you. knew you then and I know you now. I take delight to think of you. I get excited when you want to draw near to me. I find pleasure in your presence with me. I am not afraid of your realities. Nor do I want to run away from them or tell you that, when you bear them, they are too much. I find interest in your interests.
Who do you think I am?
I always have your best in mind. Being over it all, I see it all, know it all and handle it all. Even what you can’t understand, will one day come to light before your eyes. Then, you’ll understand. Then, it will all make sense. You will come to see I am good.
Did you know, you can choose to trust that now?
It brings me pleasure when you do. It pleases me when you trust me by choice. When, in uncertainty, you ask your questions. When you follow me, even though you don’t know, really, where you are going. I am not thrown off when you are thrown off. I am not distant because you’ve been. I won’t ditch you because you haven’t done everything – just right. I am better than that.
Do you know who I AM?
Receive my grace in a time of need. Accept my hand of help. Trust that when you are weak I am strong.
I always believe in you. Because I see Christ in you. His goodness is my righteousness. I put that inside of you.
Do you realize what this means?
Who can stand against you, when Christ is in you? What can topple you when the light of the world is your core? Dwell on these kinds of things and you will find strength. Consider me, empowering you and you will become strong.
I know, at times, the going has been tough. It was that way for Jesus too. But, just as He didn’t give up, don’t you give up either.
Your daddy…who cares so much more than you know.

Beautiful reminder today 🙂
What a wonderful letter from our Father. The Bible makes it abundantly clear that Christ wants us to live boldly and with purpose.
