I will never cease to be amazed at how much God loves us. Each day I find that I need Him more and more. When people all around me fail to give the comfort and love I need I know that I can turn to God and find peace and security in Him.

I was surfing the internet the other night and found this interesting, well, I don't know what it would be called. Anyways, here it is:

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. (Mat. 7:11)
For I am the perfect father. (Mat. 5:48)
Every good gift that you receive comes from my hand. (Jam. 1:17)
For I am your provider and I meet all your needs. (Mat. 6:31-33)
My plan for your future has always been filled with hope, (Jer. 29:11)
Because I love you with an everlasting love. (Jer. 31:3)
My thoughts toward you are countless as the sand on the seashore. (Psa. 139:17-18)
And I rejoice over you with singing. (Zeph. 3:17)
I will never stop doing good to you. (Jer. 32:40)
For you are my treasured possession. (Ex. 19:5)
I desire to establish you with all my heart and all my soul. (Jer. 32:41)
And I want to show you great and marvelous things. (Jer. 33:3)
If you seek me with all your heart, you will find me. (Deut. 4:29)
Delight in me and I will give you the desires of your heart, (Psa. 37:4)
For it is I who gave you those desires. (Phil. 2:13)
I am able to do more for you than you could possibly imagine, (Eph. 3:20)
For I am your greatest encourager. (2 Thes. 2:16-17)
I am also the Father who comforts you in all your troubles. (2 Cor. 1:3-4)
When you are brokenhearted, I am close to you. (Psa. 34:18)
As a shepherd carries a lamb, I have carried you close to my heart. (Isa. 40:11)
One day I wll wipe away ever tear from your eyes. (Rev. 21:3-4)
And I'll take away all the pain you have suffered on this earth. (Rev. 21:3-4)
I am your Father, and I love you even as I love my Son, Jesus. (John 17:23)
For in Jesus, my love for you is revealed. (John 17:26)
He is the exact representation of my being. (Heb. 1:3)
He came to demonstrate that I am for you, not against you. (Rom. 8:31)
And to tell you that I am not counting your sins. (2 Cor. 5:18-19)

This paraphrastic compilation of Scripture spoke to me so deeply in a time when I really needed it. I love how it sounds like a letter written by God specifically to me. Maybe it will encourage you as it did me!
