My Dear Child~

Do you know that I take great delight in you?  That I rejoice over you? That I sing songs over you? Just as you delight and take pride in your children, I delight in you.  (Zephaniah 3:17)

Sometimes your children mess up and do wrong.  As their parent, you love them and help them to do better.  That is how I am when you make mistakes.  I love you and I want to help you do better. I will forgive your sins and show you mercy, not anger.  I will throw your sins into the deep sea and will remember them no more.  (Micah 7:18-19)  Isn’t that wonderful?

Please don’t see Me as a scowling God in heaven ready to hit you over the head the moment you mess up.  Picture Me smiling, laughing, even singing over you. I delight in you, My Child.  Think about that until it is felt and known deep down inside of you.

Take joy and pride in who I created you to be.  There is no one exactly like you and you are My masterpiece.  (Psalm 139:13-16) Love and delight in yourself, as I love and delight in you.

Then, go out and show another person some love by delighting in them.  It will make their day, and yours too!
