I love you. These aren't words that hold little weight. Don't take for granted these three words, My child: I love you.
I don’t love you because I have to, I love you because I greatly desire to. I don’t love you because of your achievements. I don’t love you because of your popularity. I don’t love you because of the job you have. I don’t love you because of how beautiful you are, although I’m very proud of My creation. I don’t even love you because of how beautiful your soul is. You see My child, you don’t need to do anything for Me to love you. You don’t need to try to impress Me, the way you try to impress the people around you. You don’t need to try to get My attention the way you crave attention from other people. You don’t need to use many big words when you pray, or cry buckets of tears when you sing to Me, or memorise My entire Book, for Me to love you. I love you because that is who I am. I love you because I have made you to be Mine. I love you as you are. If you never get that promotion, I still love you. If you never get that partner, I still love you. Even if you never love Me back, My child I still love you. But I hope that you do. I hope that you choose to love Me the way I love you. I hope you choose to love Me and serve Me, so we can be together forever, in the place that I have prepared for you.
I know that sometimes you think, “God loves me because He loves everyone. I’m nothing special.” My child, that is like saying, “my parents love me because they love all of us. I’m no different to my siblings.” But you know this not to be true. And guess what? I love you much more than your parents. Imagine the one person in this world that you know without a shadow of a doubt that they love you. Think of how much they love you right now. My love for you is far greater than theirs. My love for you cannot even be compared to theirs. And if you cannot think of one person right now, that’s okay. You have Me. I know you think that’s not enough. I know you think My love for you is not enough because I am not physically with you. But My child, I promise you that it is. I am not a man that I will lie to you. My love is enough for you. I am enough. And even at that, I will still provide love for you here on earth. It is not good for anyone to live life alone. I know this, and I have designed you to need community. Come to Me, trust Me, delight in Me, and I will give you all that you want and you ever could need. Both in Me and on earth.
I love you so much. I think about you every second of every day. You are never not on My mind, My child. Before you could talk, walk or think, I loved you. I planned out your future. It breaks My heart to see you doubt Me, what more can I do to prove My love for you? I sent My Son to die for you. To suffer for you. To experience hell for you. For you. Whenever you forget, whenever you don’t feel My love for you, remember the Cross. Remember Jesus. Remember Me.
Your Father who loves you
