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!

My Child, you need to know that with Me all things are possible.    Consider some of the “impossibilities” that were possible for Me:

I parted a sea so My people could walk through on dry land and then closed the same sea on their enemies.  (Exodus 14:13-31)

Sarah bore a son even though she and her husband Abraham were well past the childbearing age.  (Genesis 18:10-1521:1-7 )

Elizabeth bore a son even though she and her husband were also advanced in years.  (Luke 1:11-251:57-58 )

Mary became pregnant even though she had never had sexual relations with a man.   ( Luke 1:26-38 )

Caesar Augustus called for a census so Jesus would be born in Bethlehem as was prophesied.  (Micah 5:2      Luke 2:1-7 )

Is anything to hard for Me?  No.  Is anything that you are facing in your life too hard for Me?  No.  It may look impossible to you but it is not impossible for Me.

Please remember that things happen at My appointed time, which may be very different from what you desire.  And what I bring about usually happens in unexpected ways.   But you see, I delight in the unexpected and unusual, for this brings those who are curious and those who are seeking to Me.

Think about it, would you choose an eighty year old man to deliver a nation from bondage?  Probably not, but I did.  (Exodus 3:7-12)  Whom would you choose to mother the King of the entire universe?  A royal queen living in a palace?   I chose a poor teenage girl and the baby was born in a stable.  (Luke 2:6-7)

You see, My ways are not like your ways, nor is My timing exactly like yours either.  (Isaiah 55:8)  But, I am always working and always involved in the affairs of men.

Be encouraged, My Child, I am keenly aware of what you are facing and what you are hoping for.  In My timing and in My rather unorthodox way I will act.  Remember, nothing is impossible with Me!  And if you don’t receive what you hope for it because My plan is greater and better than yours (Isaiah 55:9) and someday, maybe not in this world, but someday, you will understand.  And then you will be glad.  (Revelation 21:1-4)
