Love Sonnet - I Chose You

I chose you before the world began because I love you. I made you and long for you to see who I Am.

You are beautiful and I’ve given you incredible gifts. I want to spend time with you—there are so many things I want to tell you. I want to be the one you run to when you face things that scare you or things you don’t understand. I have prepared opportunities to use your gifts and talents to touch the people you meet every day. And, when you’re not sure you can do it—you can’t, not without my help. I am your strength. I am your hope. I am the One who saves you.

I know you mess up. I am the One that forgives. I know you have questions. I am the One who can answer them.  And, you know that others mess up—you can forgive them too, with my help. I see your heart. I want your heart to beat with my love.

 So when you are alone—remember I am with you. When you are afraid—I will fight for you. I will cover you with my hand of protection and watch over you because I am your Abba, Daddy. I have written your name on the palm of my hand because I will never forget you. I will never leave you. So when you have trouble trusting others—remember that I am trustworthy. I will go before you and prepare the way where you walk.

When you face tough days, remember that I am there. I will meet you in the midst of your pain. I will be what you need every moment of the day. I will fill your heart with treasure that no one can take from you. I will satisfy your hunger and thirst from My well that never runs dry.

I will seek you and call to you—and continue to show myself to you in your everyday things. I Am in the kind word spoken. I Am in the understanding ears of a listener. I am the One who gave my life for you so that we could be together forever.

Call unto Me, and I will answer and tell you great and mighty things that you don’t know. I will tell you of an everlasting love—the love I have for you; A love that never changes because I never change. I am the same today that I was yesterday—and I will be the same tomorrow. You can depend on Me and My love. You can trust me.

I love you enough to wait for you to draw near,

                                     Your Heavenly Papa
