You may not know me,
but I know everything about you.
I know when you sit down and when you rise up.
I am familiar with all your ways.
Even the very hairs on your head are numbered.
You were made in my image.
In me, you live and move and have your being.
For you are my offspring.
I chose you when I planned creation.
You were not a mistake,
for all your days are written in my book.
I determined the exact time of your birth
and where you would live.
You are fearfully and wonderfully made.
I knit you together in your mother’s womb.
And brought you forth on the day you were born.
I have been misrepresented
by those who don’t know me.
I am not distant and angry,
but am the complete expression of love.
1 John 4:16
And it is my desire to lavish my love on you.
1 John 3:1
Simply because you are my child
and I am your Father.
1 John 3:1
I offer you more than your earthly father ever could.
For I am the perfect father.
Every good gift that you receive comes from my hand.
For I am your provider and I meet all your needs.
My plan for your future has always been filled with hope.
Because I love you with an everlasting love.
My thoughts toward you are countless
as the sand on the seashore.
And I rejoice over you with singing.
I will never stop doing good to you.
For you are my treasured possession.
I desire to establish you
with all my heart and all my soul.
And I want to show you great and marvelous things you have not known!
If you seek me with all your heart,
you will find me.
Delight in me and I will give you
the desires of your heart.
For it is I who gave you those desires.
I am able to do more for you
than you could possibly imagine.
For I am your greatest encourager.
2 Thessalonians 2:16-17
I am also the Father who comforts you
in all your troubles.
2 Corinthians 1:3-4
When you are brokenhearted,
I am close to you.
As a shepherd carries a lamb,
I have carried you close to my heart.
One day I will wipe away
every tear from your eyes.
And I’ll take away all the pain
you have suffered on this earth.
I am your Father, and I love you
even as I love my son, Jesus.
For in Jesus, my love for you is revealed.
He is the exact representation of my being.
He came to demonstrate that I am for you,
not against you.
And to tell you that I am not counting your sins.
2 Corinthians 5:18-19
Jesus died so that you and I could be reconciled.
2 Corinthians 5:18-19
His death was the ultimate expression
of my love for you.
1 John 4:10
I gave up everything I loved
that I might gain your love.
If you receive the gift of my son Jesus,
you receive me.
1 John 2:23
And nothing will ever separate you
from my love again.
Come home and I’ll throw the biggest party
heaven has ever seen.
I have always been Father,
and will always be Father.
My question is…
Will you be my child?
I am waiting for you.
Love, Your Dad
Laura’s note : Whether you already know God or not, I hope the Love Letter encourages you. If you don’t know Jesus but now want to connect with Him and begin to encounter Him in your daily life, please say a simple prayer like the one below.
‘Heavenly Father, thank You that You love me and sent Your son Jesus Christ to die on the cross for my sin and to reconcile me to You. I now choose to willingly accept Him as my Saviour and personally receive His redemption for myself. Jesus, please come into my heart. Please wash me clean from all wrongdoing, in thought or action with Your supernatural blood.
Holy Spirit, I ask to receive You and to fill my innermost being with Your love. Please guide, protect and empower me daily to walk into the victorious destiny You have for my life. As I walk with You, please heal me in body, soul and mind from anything that has afflicted me or hindered my life in any way.
Teach me to overcome by Your power and set me free from negative obstacles, so I can begin to finally receive all the good things You had planned for my life but have not yet experienced.
Holy Spirit, teach me to love people like Jesus loves; teach me to grow in the fruits of Your spirit – love, peace, joy, patience, kindness, self control and so on (see note).
An Extra Prayer Some May Want To Pray:
Holy Spirit, in Your perfect timing, I humbly ask to receive your powerful gifts, (see note on the gifts of prophecy, healing, casting out demons, etc), to encourage, heal and bless others, to set them free and share Your love with them. Thank You God, for lovingly wiping my slate clean and opening the door to a divine and eternal adventure with You. Amen.’
