The Father’s Love

verses_036

 

Dear Beloved Child,

 

My love for You is unconditional, it does not depend on what you do or who you are, it’s all about who I am. I am God, I am Your Father and I am Love. To Me your’re worth more than a million stars, you’re totally worth it.

If you only knew how much I love you, you would not be living in sadness, worries, regrets. I’ve loved you since the beginning. I am the same yesterday, today and forever. Nothing can separate you from My love as I have loved you with an everlasting love.

My heart’s desire is to heal broken hearts.  I am the creation of Heaven and earth – nothing is too difficult for Me. I am the author of time – nothing is ever too late for me, My timing is always perfect.

I know you have burning questions, shattered dreams and broken promises. Give them to me and in exchange live for me. When you live your life totally for me, you shall have the answers. I delight in you and desire that you delight in Me too. When you delight yourself in Me, I will give you the desires of your heart. Trust Me, I cause all things to work for good and I am making all things beautiful in My time.

 

Love

Your Heavenly Father

Psalm 37:4  – Delight yourself in the LORD; And He will give you the desires of your heart.

Trust Me

Capture

 

“Trust Me, I will make all things beautiful in My time.

Trust Me, I will catch you when you jump.

Trust me, I will never let go of My hand.

Trust Me, I have a good plan for you.”

I stand in awe, as these words echoed in my mind as He beckons me with an outstretched hand, onto a bright path.

It was an invitation to walk on the path with Him. “Yes, I am following You, take me where you want to lead me!”

How can I ever fathom the Love of my beautiful Saviour – even if it takes eternity. I want to live like this every day, forever in Love with Him.

 

Ecclesiastes 3:11 –  He has made everything beautiful in its time.

Jeremiah 29:11 –  For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

Everlasting Love

I shouted “Why!”
He assured “Trust Me.”
I retorted “Why me?”
He replied “Because you’re my beloved.”
I cried “It’s too painful, I’m so alone! I can’t make it!”
He reminded gently “I’ve borne every rejection, betrayal, heartbreak, injustice, I understand.”

Overtaken by a rush of emotions as I recall His sacrifice at Calvary, I whispered between tears “I love you, I love you, I love you Jesus!”
He replied, touching my head “I love you too, which was why I had to die on the cross – for you. I have loved you with an everlasting Love.

a Love that is timeless, it knows no beginning or ending.
a Love that is eternal, it is perpetual, indefinite, infinite.
a Love that is constant, it is invariable, imperishable, indestructible.

And I will never leave you or forsake you.

Trust Me.”

Jeremiah 31:3 – The Lord appeared to us in the past, saying: “I have loved you with an everlasting love;  I have drawn you with unfailing kindness.

The Greatest Love Story

If you ever feel …
abandoned and unimportant,
last in the list of everyone’s priority
hurt by the very people you love and try to help.

Know that there’s someone out there who …
loves you deeply,
is ever ready to carry and console you,
is always there for you and will never forsake you.
always has you first on His list.

He loves you so much that He …
gave up His royal throne for a crown of thorns,
walked this earth as a commoner, healing and consoling, only to be spurned and scorned,
willingly suffered the most excruciating death for you before you even knew Him.

And He has been waiting for you to receive His love and let Him into your heart, so that He can lavish His love for you through eternity.

His name is Jesus. Are you willing to accept His love?

The Beauty of Trials

Are you in that time and space where …

the nights just seem so long,

the winter just seems to drag on,

the rough patch just got rougher,

Are you in a difficult lot in life right now?  Wandering and wondering …

Why is this happening to me?

This isn’t fair!

How can I carry on?

What will my future be?

 

Much as we hate it, life has its ups and downs: disappointments and betrayals, broken relationships, creditors on the door, lost a job, lost a home, lost a loved-one. For some people, it may have seemed like it’s an all-time low or that the roller-coaster is never coming back up.  Trying times like these leave us hurt, frustrated, anxiety-filled and even depressed.

In the darkest of my nights, tears just rolled down; the grieve was so deep, no words can describe.  During these deepest moments of despair, I cried out, desperately to Jesus and guess what – He met me there!

There and then, He called my name and told me ‘to let go of the past’ and that ‘He is there for me’ and ‘He is enough for me’.  Through it all, I’ve learnt that He loves me more than I can ever imagine and He is always there with me.

So then, why the suffering and pain? I’ve learnt much from these trying times, how to forgive some people and rejoice with others, how to be content with what I have and quit complaining, how to feel for people, how to give and receive love.

Just like there’s no victory without a battle, no rainbow without the rain, no dawn without dusk (and we know the darkest hour lies just before dawn) – There can be no growth without pain.

When life gets overwhelming, everything can seem to crash in together simultaneously, leaving you with no room to breathe. This is when you need to breathe in the air of Jesus – cry out to Him. He will come and hold you, heal and love you, and take you through this season.  He’s been there for me, I’m sure He’ll be there for you.

 

Whatever your circumstances, know that God is working behind the scene, 24 x 7.

Whatever happens know that God has not left you.

It may not be what we expect but then again, how would He be God if He always meets our expectations?

Nonetheless He will bring you to a flourishing end and it will be more beautiful than what you can imagine.

 


Isaiah 55:8-9

“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the Lord. “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.

James 1:2-3

Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance.
