The Father is Love
I thank God for my Father. He has been my Father and my Daddy. I have admired him since I was a little girl. Like God, he has always shown me love. I have always been confident in his love for me. I knew that if he didn’t love anybody else He loved me.
The bible states that God is love (1 John 4:8). He is our heavenly father and he loves his children dearly. I am thankful that I was able to experience firsthand what a father’s love was from my earthly father.
“This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. ” (1 John 4:9-10)
Our father in heaven loves us. Even those that feel they are not worthy. You are worthy of His love because he already loved you before you were formed in your mother’s womb. You may not have known a love from your earthly father but be confident in knowing that our heavenly father loves us because he sent love to the world to save us all.
