Here I am, Lord...

Dear Child, Your life matters to Me. I desire to see the fulfillment of the dreams and desires I have planted in your heart. Allow My plans for you to come forth. Press into Me and let Me guide your steps. You don’t know the beauty that awaits when you step into the plans and destiny I have for you. 

Many toil and labor after the world’s treasures not knowing what beautiful treasures await in Me. It is the road less traveled; the one that takes discipline to follow but one of no regrets and no lost dreams. Beauty lies ahead in the surrender. 

Shake off things of this world and focus your eyes and heart heavenward. This world is temporary, but eternity with Me is forever. Let that be your focus; let Me guide your heart to what’s truly important. 

Remind Yourself that I Am

I Am your Father. 

I Am the One who created you and knit you in your mother’s womb. Do I not know every detail about you? Every thought you have?

I know you better than you know yourself. In you, I see perfection because I created you. I covered you with the blood of the Lamb, my son Jesus, so that through Him you can be cleansed of your sins. 

I Am Love  

I have loved you before creation and watched you with the fondness of a Father. I do not look down on you with judgment but with love and adoration.

The toiling and striving ends when you surrender to Me. My peace and My rest await you. The path may be bumpy, and some refining may be ahead but that’s how beauty and fulfillment are created in My economy. 

The world will not understand, and you will not either at times, but your trust and faith will grow. The purpose you’ve been chasing all your life will be revealed. Your heart will be full, and you will look back and see all the ways I have worked and made sense of things you did not understand.

I Am Your Father 

I love you My child. You cannot fathom how much I love you, and how much I want to bless you. 

Won’t you come to Me? Won’t you trust Me with your life? 

I am your Abba Father. I desire to give you good gifts and to live in close relationship with you. 

Won’t you seek Me? When you seek Me with your whole heart, you will find Me.

“You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.” 

Jeremiah 29:13

“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.
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.
How precious to me are your thoughts, God!
    How vast is the sum of them!
Were I to count them,
    they would outnumber the grains of sand—
    when I awake, I am still with you.”  

Psalm 139:13-18

“But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin.”  

1 John 1:7

“If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him!”

Matthew 7:11

“Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.” 

James 4:8
