I hope you know how special you are.
I hope you know you are more valuable than this world sees you as.
I hope you know you don’t have to settle – for I have my hands in your future.
I hope you know you are not defined by the sins you have done and will do – for that is why I sent my Son.
I hope you know how beautiful and worthy you are. I sometimes wish you would stop doubting My creation. You compliment My sunrises and sunsets, but often forget to compliment yourself, also My creation. You compliment other people, but yet tear yourself down. You are so beautiful to Me.
I hope you know how much I truly do love you.
I wish I could tell you this life would be easy. I wish I could tell you that you would understand everything. But what good would I be then? If you knew everything? If everything was perfect? There would be no purpose for you to have trust in Me.
But sweet child of mine, I know what I am doing. I know what your potential is, what your strength is, and what your purpose is. There are certain things you may not know until you meet Me face to face – but that doesn’t mean I am not working.
Situations and seasons are hard, it will seem like it’s never ending.. But remember the rainbow after the flood? Remember Me rising the dead? Remember a couple years back you didn’t think you would make it?
My plans are not to harm you, but to grow and blossom you.
My plans are not to confuse you, but to mold you.
My plans are not to destroy you, but to define you.
But trust Me, my child. I love you and I care for you.
I never promised it would always be an easy life, but I did promise I will never leave you.
I never promised you would get married, but I did promise the love I have, is the love your heart longs for.
I never promised you would understand everything, but I did promise the Holy Spirit, who would guide you.
I never promised you would hear me all the time, but I did promise I hear you all the time.
When you sin, it breaks my heart. It breaks my heart because I don’t want you apart from Me. But Jesus – my Son – oh what a powerful story that is. My story. My Son, He paid the price for you.
He died so you didn’t have to. He became broken so you could be whole. I did that, for you, My child.
Don’t ever think what you do is too bad for me..
There is no sin too great that My grace can’t cover. There is no sin too great the precious blood of my Son doesn’t wipe clean. There isn’t anything that can keep you away from Me – because I sent my Son to kill that barrier.
But my beloved, know My commandments, learn My Word, live like Jesus, and repent of your sins. This is where freedom and I are found. Sin was a separation between us, but Jesus..
I love you. I love you more than human understanding can comprehend. There is nothing I want more than to know you and you know Me.
I can do and have the power to do what I want – but I want you to choose Me. I don’t want to force it on you, but instead, I want you to desire Me. I desire you, I want a relationship with you, I want you to feel My presence.
But child, that is up to you. I am always here. I am here waiting for you – to bring ease into your mind, healing to your body, and life to your soul.
You are not going to find what you’re looking for in the world – and I wish you would stop looking there. What you are longing for is found in Me. The fulfillment and satisfaction, the love and worthiness, the freeness of anxiety and depression…only Me.
Don’t forget Me. Don’t forget Me on your best days, when all is going right. I pour blessings upon you because I am faithful. I want to see you succeed in this life I provided to you – so thank Me. I don’t owe you anything, but yet I choose to bless you.
We have the chance to talk all the time. I wish I heard from you more. Even just to talk, no complaints, no praises. Just like friend to friend, father to son, father to daughter. I miss you and I miss hearing your stories.
I look forward to hearing from you, it makes my heart happy. All I want is for you to desire and pursue My heart. You can have Me, with every ounce of your soul.
I promise to love you always, to never forsake you.. I promise to always listen and watch over you. I promise I will work through you even in the worst situations. I promise to bless you when you are faithful to Me. I promise to remind you of all the peace, mercy, grace, patience, and immense love I have for you.
I hope you continue to take time to know Me. Talk to me. Read My Words and My scripture. Encourage My other children, too.
I love you, My beautiful child.
Your Father, Maker, and Friend.
I stared this blog in about January of 2016 to share His Word in a creative way. I was praying one night, and it kind of just came onto my heart.
I pray that The Lord may speak to you through me, I can only hope I can help you in your relationship with Christ.
