Jesus Is the Source of
All True Love, Joy, Peace, and Hope

The primary focus of the Bible is Jesus and His death for humanity. Because of His great sacrifice, every person on earth has opportunity for eternal life. Amazingly, no matter what our situation, everyone is loved by God. "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life."--John 3:16. That is good news!

"May the God of hope fill you with all
joy and peace...that you may overflow with hope
by the power of the Holy Spirit."

--Romans 15:13

God is intensely interested in you. You are special to Him. He wants you to be happy and fulfilled. To learn more about this amazing God who loves you and cares for you so personally, read on. Then share your discoveries with others. We would be delighted to hear from you.

How Precious You Are to God!

My Dear Child,

I just wanted to remind you today of how beautiful you are because there is a father of lies, Satan, who will try to deceive you. He will try to tell you that you are not good enough, not attractive enough, not thin enough, not strong enough, not smart enough, not righteous enough, and that you are simply unimportant to Me (God).

Satan will try to tell you that you have broken one too many promises, that you have fallen one too many times, that you have lived one too many lies, and that you've been going in the wrong direction so long that it is pointless to turn back now.

But guess what?

You do not belong to him, he is not your father!


You see, you are My creation. You are My workmanship. You have been borne of My thought, every part of you placed together by My hands. You have My thumbprint upon you. You are a prince or a princess, did you know that? You are My child, the child of the king!

"Behold, I have engraved your name
on the palms of my hands."

--Isaiah 49:16

I look at you and see a precious, priceless pearl. There is no ocean I would not swim, no mountain I would not climb, no price I would not pay to have you and to be with you and call you My own.

I already have.

I have done all that I could, given all that there is. I desire to be with you every moment of every day. How I long for you to talk to Me every day. My love for you never grows cold. My promises are never broken (contrary to what Satan might lead you to believe). My character never changes. And you, my child have been made in My image.

I love you dearly, unconditionally and completely. I understand every emotion that you have. I've been there. I count every tear that you cry. I know every hair on your head.

"But the very hairs of your head
are all numbered."

--Matthew 10:30

And do you know what?

I even know your weaknesses and your failures and your fears. I know those hidden parts of you that you wish would go away. Those dark corners of your world that you stuff deep down, praying that no one will ever see. I have already seen them and they will not change my love for you.

Nothing will.

I just wanted to remind you today of how beautiful you are and how precious you are to Me.

With unmeasurable love,

Your Heavenly Father

"But now thus says the Lord,
who created you,...He who formed you...I have called you
by name, you are mine."

--Isaiah 43:1

"For I know the plans I have for you,"
declares the Lord,
"plans to prosper you and not to harm you,
plans to give you hope and a future."

--Jeremiah 29:11

Perhaps this very minute, as you surf the Internet,
you are anxious, lonely, discouraged,
totally exhausted. If you are, then read this
and you'll find comfort and peace.
It flows from the great heart of God's infinite love:

"Keep your wants, your joys, your sorrows, your cares, and your fears, before God. You cannot burden Him; you cannot weary Him. He who numbers the hairs of your head is not indifferent to the wants of His children. 'The Lord is very pitiful, and of tender mercy' (James 5:11). His heart of love is touched by our sorrows, and even by our utterance of them. Take to Him everything that perplexes the mind. Nothing is too great for Him to bear, for He holds up worlds. He rules over all the affairs of the universe. Nothing that in any way concerns our peace is too small for Him to notice. There is no chapter in our experience too dark for Him to read; there is no perplexity too difficult for Him to unravel. No calamity can befall the least of His children, no anxiety harass the soul, no joy cheer, no sincere prayer escape the lips, of which our heavenly Father is unobservant, or in which He takes no immediate interest. 'He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds' (Psalm 147:3). The relations between God and each soul are as distinct and full as though there were not another soul upon the earth to share His watchcare, not another soul for whom He gave His beloved Son."--Keys to Happiness, p. 49.
