A love letter from God

A Love Letter from God   

Dear Child,

I want you to know how much I love you. This is your new identity: you are my child, my heir and in you I take great delight.

I am your Heavenly Father and I love you even as I love my son. I’m so proud of you and can see so much of myself in you.

I have known you before you were born. I knit you together in your mother’s womb. I have had a plan for you from before the beginning of time. My plans are good.

My love is unconditional. I will always love you. Nothing you can do will make me love you less; nothing you can do will make me love you more. Nothing will ever separate you from my love.

I want you to know my love for you, to feel it deep in your heart. As you do, my joy will bubble up inside of you. I will comfort you when you are in trouble. I will rejoice with you when you rejoice.

I am your provider. You need never worry or be anxious about having enough. I will provide. I know you intimately. I know every detail about you, and your days are numbered before me. I have determined the exact place where you will live and my timing for your life is perfect. Trust me.

You are my treasured possession, my darling child. And I love you.

I AM

Your loving Father.

From “I Am Your Father” by Mark Stibbe
