LETTER FROM GOD

Dear child, 
I have been watching you for the past few days and I realised you needed to hear from me. You have been trying to mend your relationship with me, but it's never done that way. 

Have you ever read the scripture that says he who began a good work in you is faithful to bring it to completion? I made the first move by creating you. And when I created you, I saw that what I had made of you was very good. I initiated this relationship long before you were even born. What you need to do is trust me to complete what I began. Trying to find your way to me is not the way stuff is done. 

Most times when you fail, you think I must be disappointed in you. But trust me, I anticipated all the mistakes you would make and all your failures long before you made them. That is why I had to die for the sins of the whole world for all time, not only for your sins up to the time you commit another one. 

I am not surprised when you fail. Rather, I long to hold you in my arms and reassure you of my unending love for you. You hinder me when you try to straighten up so you can deserve me more. So, stop looking at yourself and what you must do to get back in communion with me. I am always longing for you. I delight in you. I rejoice over you with singing at all times. (Zephaniah 3:17). I am madly in love with you. I never leave you even for a second. Would you just stop trying to be good enough for me? 

You are already good enough, because when I see you, I see that you are just like Jesus (1 John 4:17) and proclaim that you are my beloved child in whom I am well pleased (Matthew 3:17). Can you get any better than that? 

So go buy yourself some ice cream and have a party! You are daddy's beloved daughter. And he delights in you! Very much!! 

And don’t forget I am always looking out for you. 

With an everlasting love, 
God
