Love Letters from God

Love Letters from God

Dear daughter of the king of Kings, 

My husband gifted me with this great little book for Christmas 642 Things About You (That I Love) by The San Francisco Writers' Grotto. Some of the entries for the writer to compose include "The thing I miss most when we're apart," "The thing I am surprised I miss when we're apart," "The thing I always do when we're apart," and "An ode to the things that make you you." The book gives the writer 642 topics for love letters to their significant other.  

Whether you're celebrating Valentine's Day with your number two or someone else you love, celebrating Galentine's Day (I had no idea what this was until today, I am clueless on pop culture), or celebrating Single Awareness Day, I wanted to use this post to discuss celebrating the One who is Love.  

Did you know that the Bible is full of love letters from God to you?

The Bible is about God; He is the "main character." It is a true tale of His nature and His love for His creation and His children. And if you believe in His Son Jesus, you are one of His children. Thus, the Bible, full of His love letters to you, reveal Who He is, and who we are when we ask Jesus to be our LORD and Savior. 

If 642 things that someone loves about someone else sounds like a lot, God has an innumerable amount of things that He loves about you. 

There were a few Valentine's Days that I felt lonely, the heartbreak of past relationships seemed to grow in their significance. Even though I am blessed to have many different relationships full of love, I realize now that there is one relationship that shows love above and beyond any other. God doesn't just love; He is love. 

"God showed how much he loved us by sending his one and only Son into the world so that we might have eternal life through him. But anyone who does not love does not know God, for God is love. Dear friends, let us continue to love one another, for love comes from God. Anyone who loves is a child of God and knows God." ~ 1 John 4:7-9

Going back to God's love letters to you, let me just share some. 

"You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb." ~ Psalms 139:13

The LORD lovingly formed you. You and everything about you was intentional.

"Then Jesus said,“Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest." ~ Matthew 11:28

God wants you to give all your worries to Him; He will carry them for you. 

"Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” ~ Matthew 28:20 

You never need to fear to be alone. The Lord is always with you. 

"So God can point to us in all future ages as examples of the incredible wealth of his grace and kindness toward us, as shown in all he has done for us who are united with Christ Jesus." ~ Ephesians 2:7 

The Lord showed the ultimate love for you through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.  Pastor John Gray’s message Going the Distance had a powerful statement concerning this. He said, "God had faith in you enough to let His Son die just in case you decided to serve Him later.” How is that for Love? That statement still hits me a the core. 



"I am leaving you with a gift—peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid." ~ John 14:27 

The Lord offers you His mighty arms to come to for comfort and peace. He is your safe place.  

"Let us rejoice and be glad and give him glory! For the wedding of the Lamb has come, and his bride has made herself ready." ~ Revelation 19:7 

The Lord has prepared your wedding day, a day of celebration for when you meet Him in Heaven. 

Here are a few other statements of Love from God. 

~Psalms 37:23
~Psalm 126:5
~Isaiah 43:18-19
~John 14:14
~1 Corinthians 2:9
~1 Corinthians 3:16-17
~1 Corinthians 6:19-20
