I’m just a girl.

I told him I loved him, I was terrified of him but moma always said, “tell your daddy you love him” and I, being the obedient and timid daughter, I always did what I was told.

I am familiar with all your ways. Psalm 139:3
My Father, my real Father who has always been there for me.
He tells me He loves me…no matter what.
After my earthly father died, I could never understand why his work and his community were so much more important than his family. I’m very grateful that I had a father at all. I learned to be a servant as well, but taking care of my family first. I understood the need, but why did he have to volunteer for everything that came along. Why couldn’t he desire to be with his wife and his children. “I offer you more than your earthly father ever could.” Matthew 7:11
My real Father, my Heavenly Father shows me and tells me that He loves me in so many ways.
Through all of nature and this beauty that astounds us.
Through the birds singing, children laughing, a cat that rubs against my leg wanting food to eat. He tells me He loves me through friends I hold dear, through love that was long forgotten, through smiles, laughter and through tears. “You keep track of all my sorrows. You have collected all my tears in your bottle. You have recorded each one in your book.” Psalm 56:8
My Father tells me He loves me in the rain, the wind, the ice, the storm and He tells me He loves me in a pure white snow — untouched and left clean of the world around us.
The glistening of the crystals — who could make up something so amazing and minutely detailed as a snowflake; only those works of the Almighty and Most High Elohim. Who can grow a child from conception through 9 months inside of a being, no one but our Yahweh can!
I know through all these things and many more; through His word that He loves me…no matter what. No matter how many times I fail or mess things up, no matter how many times I forget to thank Him or praise Him, no matter how many times my selfishness might cause me to stumble and I don’t give Him my best, He still loves me. I love Him too…no matter what.
