IF GOD WROTE YOU A LETTER
Have you begun to understand out how much I care about you? Have you gotten glimpses of my love and grace? Look for them—they abound. Make it a game to count the number of ways I reveal myself and my love for you today. I am the one who forgives and heals. You can count on me to rescue you from dangerous or lonely places. I am the one who will satisfy you with things that last forever. There is no rust or decay on my love and grace.
Have you seen the eagle in flight? Watch it soar. That’s what I want to do with your life. I want you to know the freedom you have in me. Your sin has been forgiven. Try traveling east until you meet west. You can’t do it. They are an infinite distance apart. That’s just an idea of how far I’ve removed your sin from you life. You are free—free indeed! Enjoy life as my child.
Celebrate! Re-read this chapter and make a list of all the benefits our loving God provides.
