To My Beautiful Daughter!
I love you very much.
I don’t think you realize what a beautiful woman you are. God made you uniquely beautiful, he gave you unique talents, and a unique personality.
He knew you before you were formed in my womb. Jeremiah 1:5 (NASB 1995) “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you,” Psalm 139:14 “I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Wonderful are Your works, And my soul knows it very well.”
As a very young child you always compared yourself to your sister. Well, God didn’t make you to be her, and he didn’t make her to be you. His plan for your life is different from His plan for hers. But he has a plan for both of you. Good plans.
His will for your life contains spiritual and physical blessings. True life Romans 14:17 “ is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.” Ephesians 1:3-5 New American Standard Bible 1995 “3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, 4 just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we would be holy and blameless before [a]Him. In love 5 [b]He predestined us to adoption as sons through Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the [c]kind intention of His will,”.
Jeremiah 29:11-13 “For I know the plans that I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart.” For, Numbers 23:19 “God is not a man, that He should lie, Nor a son of man, that He should repent; Has He said, and will He not do it? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?”
Romans 8:35-39 New American Standard Bible 1995 #35 “Who will separate us from the love of [a]Christ? Will tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? 36 Just as it is written,
“For Your sake we are being put to death all day long;
We were considered as sheep to be slaughtered.”
"37 But in all these things we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us. 38 For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, 39 nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
Christ died for our sins. Romans 3:23-29 New American Standard Bible 1995
“23 for all [a]have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, 24 being justified as a gift by His grace through the redemption which is in Christ Jesus; 25 whom God displayed publicly as a [b]propitiation [c]in His blood through faith.”
Salvation is a free gift from the Father presented to us in the Son. Ephesians 2:8-12 New American Standard Bible 1995 “8 For by grace you have been saved through faith; and [a]that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; 9 not as a result of works, so that no one may boast. 10 For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them.”
God desires fellowship with you, his beautiful creation. Just as he walked in the garden with Adam and Eve so he desires to walk with you.
1 John 1:3 New American Standard Bible 1995 “3 what we have seen and heard we proclaim to you also, so that you too may have fellowship with us; and indeed our fellowship is with the Father, and with His Son Jesus Christ.”
Beautifully formed, uniquely made child remember that the Father, Jesus, and I love you very much.
