I'm writing you this letter to remind you once again of how much I love you. You do not have to earn my love. I have loved you since I first thought of you. My constant loving Thought of you keeps you in existence!
You don't have to look up to the Heavens to pray to Me, or wave a prayer to get My attention. Look inside you. Your deepest self is your soul united to Me. Your soul is more magnificent than the greatest Palace because My home is within you. I, the Almighty God, find my dearest dwelling in the souls of My children!
So all your efforts to teach your children to respect themselves and others should always start with this truth: "You are wonderful because you are made in the Image of God your Father and God lives within you."
Teach yourself that truth, too.
You can never feel worthless once you remember Whose child you are - and that I so loved you that My Son Jesus took on human flesh and lived, died, and rose to give you the Good News of how much you are loved!
Who else do you know of who has died for you?
Knowing that I live within you can make you aware of how gifted you are - I have showered many gifts upon you through the enthusiasm and power of my Holy Spirit!
Knowing that I live within you should also make you humble. You cannot earn My love. You cannot work and work and make yourself worthy of My love. I give it because I AM LOVE!!!!
I never stop loving you, either. There is nothing that you could do or say to stop Me from loving you. If you sin, turn to Me immediately. Don't hide from Me as Adam and Eve did. They only hurt themselves that way.
I never leave you. You leave Me every time you forget about Me. You leave me when you bar your heart against My Presence and don't acknowledge Who lives in your soul. But you have come from Me and will return to Me. Live your life in the Light of Eternity.
I am asking you to not only love Me, but to love one another. Whoever is without love does not know Me, for I am Love. The more you love Me and the more you love others, the less fearful and timid you will be, because Perfect Love drives out fear! Why should you fear, when you know you belong to Me? Come to me with childlike trust. Let My arms be a Father's arms that carry you to Heaven.
Your Loving Father,
God - and p.s. You can learn all this about Me and more, in the First Letter of John.
