My Child,

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.
1. Psalm 139:1-3 (NIV)
You have searched me, Lord, and you know me. You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar. You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways.
Even the very hairs on your head are numbered.
2. Matthew 10:29-31 (NIV)
Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground outside your Father’s care. And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.
For you were made in my image.
3. Genesis 1:27 (NIV)
So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.
In me you live and move and have your being.
For you are my offspring
4. Acts 17:28 (NIV)
‘For in him we live and move and have our being.’ As some of your own poets have said, ‘We are his offspring.’

In him we were also chosen, having been predestined according to the plan of him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of his will, in order that we, who were the first to put our hope in Christ, might be for the praise of his glory.
You were not a mistake, for all your days are written in my book.
7. Psalm 139:15-16 (NIV)
My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.
I determined the exact time of your birth and where you would live.
8. Acts 17:26 (NIV)
From one man he made all the nations, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he marked out their appointed times in history and the boundaries of their lands.
You are fearfully and wonderfully made.
I knit you together in your mother's womb.
9. Psalm 139:13-14 (NIV)
For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.

10. Psalm 71:6 (NIV)
From birth I have relied on you; you brought me forth from my mother’s womb. I will ever praise you.

11. John 8:41-44 (NIV)
You are doing the works of your own father.” “We are not illegitimate children,” they protested. “The only Father we have is God himself.” Jesus said to them, “If God were your Father, you would love me, for I have come here from God. I have not come on my own; God sent me. Why is my language not clear to you? Because you are unable to hear what I say. You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.
I am not distant and angry, but am the complete expression of love.
12. 1 John 4:16 (NIV)
And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them.
And it is my desire to lavish my love on you.
Simply because you are my child and I am your Father.
13. 1 John 3:1 (NIV)
See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him.
I offer you more than your earthly father ever could.

Every good gift that you receive comes from my hand.

Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.
For I am your provider and I meet all your needs.
17. Matthew 6:31-33 (NIV)
So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.
My plan for your future has always been filled with hope.

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.
34. Revelation 21:3-4 (NIV)
And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. ‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”

All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting people’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation.
His death was the ultimate expression of my love for you.
40. 1 John 4:10 (NIV)
This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.
I gave up everything I loved that I might gain your love.
41. Romans 8:31-32 (NIV)
What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things?

I am waiting for you.

Love, Your Dad

Almighty God

47. Luke 15:20-24 (NIV)
“But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and was filled with compassion for him; he ran to his son, threw his arms around him and kissed him. “The son said to him, ‘Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you. I am no longer worthy to be called your son.’ “But the father said to his servants, ‘Quick! Bring the best robe and put it on him. Put a ring on his finger and sandals on his feet. Bring the fattened calf and kill it. Let’s have a feast and celebrate. For this son of mine was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.’ So they began to celebrate.
