Soul Seeds…

This makes me cry every time I read it. A personal challenge many of us face daily is being able
to relate to God on such a personal level, not to mention actually calling Him, “Dad, Father,
PaPa, etc.” I struggle in being able to relate some of these names to God, because I’ve never had
much of an earthly example. In fact, the men in my life have been so far from Godly, applying
these names to Him not only seems strange at times, but also scary. This is such a tragedy and
really sad, because if we associate things like fear, abandonment, abuse, control and hate with
the name “Dad or Father” then it only stands to reason we may associate these same negative
ideas with God too. It is yet, just another way Satan lies to us, in order to keep us from having a
relationship with God and experiencing the perfect love He has for us.

Also, we spend so much time seeking the things listed in this letter through our worldly
relationships when the only One who can ever truly fulfill these needs is patiently waiting for
us to come to Him. He wants us to desire and seek out love, acceptance and a personal
relationship with Him just as much, and even more so, than we do with other people and the
things of this world. It is good of course, to believe and have faith in others, but no matter how
hard we try we are going to fail and make mistakes, because we are human and far from perfect.
God is perfect though and because God is
Love, God’s LOVE is perfect also! And whether man or
woman, the more we understand His love for us, the more we will be able to model that love in
our relationships with others.

Allow God’s love letter to speak to your heart, for they are HIS words to you. No one loves you as
much as He does, but you have to be willing to accept it. Will you call Him, “Father, Dad, PaPa…?”
There is a longer, more detailed account of this letter available to read anytime you choose
called, the Bible.

May we learn to trust and seek God first to fulfill all our needs and may we
be able to recognize that our value and self worth can only be found in Him.

    Calling the Bible a love letter from our Heavenly Father is just so wonderfully intimate and so very true! “For God so loved the world….” “He loved us ere we knew him….” “He loved us before the foundations of the world.” An awesome God is our Daddy up in Heaven!
