Have you ever thought about what God would say to you if He wrote you a love letter?

We often think of our favorite romance movie when we think about love. We dream about the fairytales and happily ever after. Only to find out the person we are dating or married to is not the same knight and shinning armor portrayed on film and we are no cinderella!

But what if I told you there was a story far better than what you could ever dream. A book filled with love letters about a man named Jesus, who despite your flaws takes you just as you are.

One who created you from love to give love.

Today, God wants to bring you back to that place of feeling His love again. He wants to fill every hole in your heart that makes you feel like you are not enough.

Maybe, thinking about what God would say to you sounds scary. Because you feel unworthy of His love. Or maybe your dad wasn't in your life, and you compare the way you view your earthly father to the way God views us. But can I let you in on a secret? God loves you way more than your earthly father ever could because He made you even before your dad knew your name.

To know love, is to know God.

Jeremiah 1:5 - "Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations."

I remember growing up and always struggling in school. I wasn't as gifted in learning the way my dad was. For him, math was never a challenge. You could throw him any equation, and he'd hit it out of the park. As for me, I was a toddler learning to walk. The moment I thought I understood one thing, I'd find myself falling again, crying on the way down to the floor. ( & No that was not just a metaphor. Ya girl really would have a mental breakdown) I'll never forget one year I made a one hundred on my TASK test. It was a math test that would determine if you go to the next grade level. I remember getting my results and immediately beaming with excitement. Not because of the score I got, but because I knew how proud my dad would be of me. Within moments later, I also found out I had failed my social studies test. And just like that, what was suppose to be sweet turned sour. I came home from school with a sad victory. I told my dad the good news first, hoping that it would help digest the bad. I then hung my head like a dead flower, whispering under my breath, but " I failed my other test." Without any hesitation, he put his arm around me and said, " Angela, I am still so proud of you. I will always be proud of you, girl." It was that moment I realized the score didn't matter. What mattered to him was that I did my best. There was no score that was going to determine my dad's love for me. And that is exactly how our Heavenly Father looks at you!

Right now, at this moment. Whatever you are carrying, whatever news you think is too bad to bring to Him. He wants to tell you He is proud. He wants to hold you in His arms and tell you how much He loves you regardless of what you could possibly say.

Romans 5:8- "But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us."

If there is anything I've learned in the past 25 years, it's this. God does not love me because I do things to make him proud. God doesn't love me because I read my bible or write blogs about Him. God doesn't even love me because I go to church and serve His children. God loves me because I am His. It's nothing I've worked for, nothing I can do more of or change.

His love does not waiver, it doesn't expire or disappear if I don't spend enough time with Him.

He loves me simply because I am His daughter.

And in case you need some encouragement today...

He saw the cross and saw you.

He saw your brokenness and said even if she doesn't love me back, I will choose her. Ephesians 1:4- "Just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we would be holy and blameless before Him In love"

So, I want to challenge you...

In the midst of being quarantined and stuck in your home. Would you choose to listen to the silence over fear? Would you give God room to speak over you what he has always been singing?

Psalm 46:10 - "Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!”

Women of God, let's take off that band-aid covering those past wounds because some are so deep they need stitches to heal. And by continuing to patch it up, it's only causing you to be more infected.

Jesus is near. He has never left, He never abandoned you, He has not stopped being your provider, your protector, and perfect peace. God wants to speak new life over His daughters!

So use this time of stillness to ask Him what he wants to speak to you.

A few months ago, I sat down to write a blog and just couldn't think. I was sitting in a coffee shop totally spaced out but I just started typing. And it was as if God was downloading His words into the tip of my fingers. As if God was writing me a love letter. Reminding me of my worth and identity in Him. I was hesitant to share this but I felt like God was telling me somebody needed this same reminder today!

So, to the woman struggling with her purpose, worth, and security.

Let this be Gods truth spoken over you.

Dear Daughter,

You are loved.

The world has tried to steal your worth, but I have loved you even before your birth. I have made you white as snow, so don't let the world tell you something it doesn't know. Because my daughter, you are enough. Never forget that I've made you tough.

You are royalty, clothed in purple

covered by my grace that's a never-ending circle. It's by my stripes you are healed, I will always protect you like a shield. My daughter, you are forgiven. Your heart is always my greatest mission. My love for you can't be weighed on a scale, my daughter, you were worth every nail. So stop holding onto your past for time is only a gift that doesn't last. Come to me, and I will give you rest. I will always hold you up like a life vest. For I see all things near and far, yet I chose you just as you are. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. And I came to make what's wrong, right. My daughter, you are worthy of agape love

one that I'll never be tired of. You have held on to every mistake, but I've come to restore all your heartache. So never forget the promise I've made, that my love for you will never fade. No matter what you have done or believed, know your heart is now redeemed.

I made you with a purpose to prosper And you will always be my daughter.

You are loved.

Now let's speak life over us, would you declare this with me;

- Galatians 2:20 "I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me."

Sister, you are known, loved, seen and worth dying for!

Don't ever let the world allow you to forget whose you are.
