What I am going to share in this letter is something that I have learned and grown to understand through my walk with God. I have struggled like we all do with feeling valued and loved. I have struggled to understand how God could love me in my imperfections and flaws. I struggled with surrendering to His plan for my life and tried to run my own life for so long.
This letter is who I know God to be and I never want you or I to forget.
God loves you with a passionate love beyond your favorite love story and when we truly know how loved we are, we are set free.
Dear loved one,
I know you have been struggling and looking for answers in all areas of life and I am here. I know you and I see you. I cherish every hair on your head. I knit you together in your mother’s womb, not by accident or chance, but with intention and purpose. You did not come from a bang in the sky, or by way of an ape. No no, you were created with powerful purpose, love and intention. I wanted you and I had a reason for creating you.
I placed a beat in your heart and breath in your lungs to carry out a specific call.
A call you could never create yourself. My plans are better than the greatest dream you have imagined. Trust me. I came to die for you before you even recognized me. I came to love you before you ever loved me. I came to leave you the greatest letter of all time, the Word of God, The Bible. My word that holds answers for everything you come up against. I came to answer your prayers and walk with you. I came to lead you and guide you and give you wisdom. I came to give you abundant and eternal life.
I know this path you have walked has been hard. You’ve experienced hardships, loss, disappointments, confusion, hangups and heartbreak. Just know that there is always and forever redemption and restoration in my arms, in my presence.
I know you have regrets, things you feel have tarnished you and made you less than whole.
But dear one, I already took all of that on the cross. You are forgiven and set free, all you have to do is ask and I will remember your mistakes no more. I will throw them away as far as the east is from the west and make you into a new creation. You can begin again every single morning.
There is no amount of sin or grief or loss that could ever separate you from my love.
I am there every second of every single day. Call on me my love. Seek me. Pursue me.
I am the one who holds these mysteries in the palm of my hand. They are waiting for you. Waiting to be revealed and set into motion through my spirit.
There is no need to fret or to stress because I am in control of all. When you trust me, there you will find peace. And only there.
I am the God who holds the earth and all the universe in the palm of my hand. Do you think I am not capable of guiding you and holding your life in the palm of my hand?
Let go. Be still. And remember that I am God.
My love for you knows no bounds and no earthly expression of love could ever display the magnitude of my love for you. I loved you so much that I sent my only son, Jesus and the Holy Spirit to guide you and lead you to everlasting life. And no matter what you have walked through, or are walking through, it is never too late. Never too late to be restored, to find healing, to find joy and to find your way to salvation and eternal life in my Kingdom.
I am here waiting for you with open arms, waiting to wipe you clean, to fill your spirit and give you abundant life.
I just pray you will run to me and give your life to the only hands that are capable.
To the almighty God who knew you and your days before you were even conceived. I have waited for you in anticipation and excitement. Trust me, I have good plans for you and I am desperate to give them to you.
Just come to me.
With a love that is unfailing, unconditional, indescribable, and unconceivable,
-Your Father, God.
