To my Everdearest,

grassi

Hey! Do you know that I am so in love with you? Do you know that I am deeply and greatly in love with you? From even the first of firsts I have loved and adored you. You are the apple of my eye. I love gazing at you day after day, each and every moment of your life. My thoughts toward you are countless. You are precious. You are wonderful!

Has anyone told you that you’re unloved, alone, useless or pathetic? I tell you, you are not. How do I know? I know all things! and I know you. For I, with my own bare hands, have made, formed and created you. You are not a mistake. No, never! You are a super masterpiece. You are my treasure! Never believe those who tell you that you’re ugly or unattractive because I, in my own image, have molded you, fearfully and wonderfully. I delight in you!

By this time, perhaps you already know who I am. I want to lavish this love on you. I want you to know me; who I am and what I feel for you, so please continue reading.

Some people think of me as a fabrication of the mind. Others say that I’m just a person and some acknowledge my existence but deems of me as distant and unfriendly, snobbish or even deaf. I am not. I even hear your heart. Happiness, excitement, feelings of warmth and love, all of your sobs and wails, your losses, hurts and disappointments, even your fears, suspicions and worries. It doesn’t mean that when you don’t hear or see me, I am not there. I have always been by your side–waiting for you to notice and know me. Always able and available; with open arms, I will accept you as you are.

Feel your heart. Each beat comes from my hand. I am your life-giver. The air you breathe and the food you eat are all for you to have life. I sustain you and give you strength. Every good thing that you see around you comes from me. I know all that you need and  will provide for them because I care for you. Even the best of your future is in my hand. A future that has been always filled with hope.

I am a friend. I am a brother. I am the Perfect Father. I want to comfort you in all of your troubles. I want to fill you with peace and joy. I desire to make you stronger and stronger through the trials that you face. I am faithful. I will never leave you nor forsake you. I will never let you go. Unlike people, I am always, ever-true to my promises. Are you weary? Come to me and I will give you calming and comforting rest; for I am kind and I am gracious. I am good. I will never stop doing good to you. I am who I am. I am love itself. I love you more than you could ever know. These words are not enough to describe how much I care and adore you.

My child, I hurt when I see you hurting. Every time you cry, I always feel your pain. That is why I always desired and longed to be with you. I can give you joy in the midst of your trials. Cling to me and you will feel peace like you never, ever felt before. These things I can give you, if you would just let me.

Child, I can show great things if you would call to me. Seek me with all of your heart and you will find me. Delight in me and I will give you the desires of your heart. I can do all things and I am able to do immeasurably far more than you could possibly imagine.

I love you and I will never stop loving you. I died on the cross in your place, not wanting anyone to perish but for all to come to repentance. To tell you that I am not counting your shortcomings;  and to save you from the bondage of sin. I love you this much. I gave up my life so that you and I could be reconciled.

If you will accept my gift of salvation, nothing will ever separate you from my love again.

I am your Father and will always be your Father.

P.S. I am waiting for you.

 

With an Everlasting Love,

Daddy, Almighty God

Loving the Unlovable

Seriously, how hard is it to love the unlovable—I mean, those people who consistently get you in a bad mood, those who always take time to mistreat you, or those who have hurt you before?

The bible states “…love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you (Matthew 5:44).” But again, isn’t it dreadfully difficult to love and accept the people who relentlessly ignore and disregard you? It sure is.

Jesus said in Matthew 5:46, “For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have?…Do not even the tax collectors do the same?” That’s right. Even shoplifters and hijackers love those who love them.

One thing that makes a righteous person different is his response to hurt caused by other people. A person who loves another person is natural; but when he loves a backstabber, a traitor or a liar unconditionally and shows how he cares for him despite that person’s faults, he is now making a big difference.

All people, no matter how hard-headed and unfaithful, have need for real, genuine love. Whether we accept it or not, sincere love is a necessity for a real, happy life. If a person does not acknowledge this need, he may turn out to be a self-sufficient, egotistic and self-centered individual who only loves and lives for himself. On the other hand, if a person admits that he needs other people for him to feel loved and accepted, he will grow interdependent with other people; seeking and repaying love knowing that other people has this need also.

If someone will feel loved despite his lapses and weaknesses, he will try to overcome these weaknesses to payback and retrieve the unpleasant things he has done to the person—thus, resulting into a changed life, a changed family, a changed world.

Whenever we feel treated unfairly, let us turn to what God has done for us. Jesus came down to this world knowing his fate; to be insulted and slaughtered by the same people he came to save. We, grumbling sinners, unfaithful and selfish people are loved by a God so high and exalted.

This representation is enough to forgive and forget. We are all the same. We are all sinners; yet God loves us. He loves all of us completely despite of our constant disrespect and rebellion against Him.

“…He causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.”  Matthew 5:45

The Valley’s Beauty

It gets so hard for us to understand the reason why sometimes, we face those mental weights, problems and mishaps gradually turning to disaster. “What did I do to deserve this? This is so miserable!” or “Does God really care? If He cares, this won’t be happening to me.” At some point, we begin to put the blame on someone else, even ourselves and at the most distressed parts of the valleys, we blame God.

Ecclesiastes 3: 1 to 8, entitled A Time for Everything, did not exclude verse 4 saying, a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance. Most of the time, we don’t want to claim the reality of “downers” being part of our life, our betterment and our advancement and maturity.

Now, you may ask, how will these afflictions help me when all they do is negate, frustrate and stress me out? Well, one kid does not learn how to direct a bicycle without first riding it without falling, pedaling and moving without wavering; he might even get a thousand bruises before learning it. Get the point?

Prayers may sometimes seem to be unanswered. Requests and petitions lifted up to God may not match up with what we get and receive. Life may sometimes be so messy and unfriendly. Why is pain a part of us?

 Pain is one of the instruments God uses to call His children to Him. Matthew 11:28 states “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. God is the Only Hope. He wants us to know that without Him, we are completely helpless. He wants us to know that without Him, we can’t do anything about anything. He wants us to know our need of a Redeemer, Comforter and True Friend who will truly love us unconditionally. He wants us to know and experience His rest. He wants to be with us because in His presence, there is fullness of joy. (Psalm 16:11)

Does God really care? He definitely, certainly and incontestably do! I Peter 5:7 (NLT) testifies: “Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.”Do you want to know how much God cares for you? Well then, brace yourselves.

“But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8

How can someone so big, holy and powerful suffer a humiliating and vile death in the place and hands of prideful, selfish people; of sinners?—the people who resist and ignore Him—you and me. All of us. Love died for all of us. This is mega love.

Knowing that an awesome God loves and rescued us despite of our weaknesses and failings makes me want to shout for joy. Pain and burden lightens, lessens, and evaporates when we think of how God cares and loves us.

Lastly, our struggles claim the right to promote God’s glory. Our struggles and fights, troubles and tribulation incorporate toward one great end.—God’s glory. Are there points in your life where you’ve helped others understand and crack their trials? Or is there anyone been blessed by your experiences and triumph over these battles? Have you considered the life of Daniel, of Job and of David? How about Jesus’ death? Does His suffering bring hope, light and life?

“Do not Fret”

 Even in brokenness and despair,

I’ll cry, “My God is good, He always cares.

In darkness and trials, His light shines brighter,

In weakness and heartaches there I become stronger.

My God is faithful, help is on the way,

Do not fret, do not falter; the same, He will stay.

He knows and cares, He always do,

His Word and promises always remain true.

Tears will flow down my cheeks,

Because of gratitude for His amazing deeds.

Nothing compares to the strength of my God,

I will trust Him because He is my Loving Dad.

 Whatever comes my way, I’ll see it through,

 In my storms and valleys, He’ll be there too.

 I’ll trust my Shepherd, in Him I’ll stand,

 He will never cease holding my hand!

Nothing shall snatch me from His hand,

This love is more than I can stand.

You will quiet the winds and command the flood,

For that; I will be still and know You are God!
