This is something a little different and a bit personal. It is journal and conversation with our heavenly Father told from the perspective of a child.
Today I got lost. I couldn’t find my way home. Dark. Cold. Rain. My tears mingled and merged with the rain.
“Papa, where am I? Have you forgotten your little girl?”
“Child, I will never by any means leave you or forsake you. I love you with an everlasting love, and I am the light of your feet. Child, look up! Your deliverance is at hand.”
I got saved today. Lying in the grime all alone, my tears ran out. But someone beautiful picked me up, washed away the grime, wrapped me in warmth, and mended my tatters.
“Papa, how? Why?”
“My little lamb, how could I not search for you and find you and bring you home? I sent my beloved Son, because I love you. I gave him for you – to save you, to heal you, to love and protect you.”
I received a beautiful, glorious robe today. Jesus gave it to me. It’s called the Robe of Righteousness. He gave it to me for free, but it cost him so very much. He bought it for me because he loves me.
“Child, wear the robe always. You honor and glorify my Son when you accept the gifts he gives you. Be consumed in our love.”
I discovered a great treasure today – Me! I am like a treasure chest with marvelous treasures hidden inside waiting to be brought out. Papa, showed me this story about the Kingdom of God. It is like a man who found a great treasure, and sold all that he had to purchase it. Jesus gave up everything to purchase me, because I am of great value.
“It is hard for me to understand, Papa. I don’t feel worthy?”
“My jewel, you are worth the best of heaven coming to earth to save you. No one is “worthy”, because all have sinned and fallen short. But you are of great value and worth it!”
