The Parent’s Love
When you are rooted in the love of God as a parent, your children will truly know what it means to be loved by God. When you show them the character of God they will experience a love that has no end. It will be a love that continues to give grace, peace, and room to grow into the true identity of who they are.
Love bears all things, believes all things,hopes all things, endures all things (1 Corinthians 13:7)
What is the Father’s Love?
When I think about the Father’s love, I can describe it as adoring, passionate, caring, and enduring. His love is like a river that never runs dry. His love is also very deep. You can go into the deepest parts of His heart but yet continue to experience more of His love.
The Father’s Love is also very healing.
I remember being afraid of being abandoned in my early childhood years. As a young child, the love that I experienced was very conditional. Love was often withheld from me if I did not please my mother’s wishes. As an adult, I feared losing the deep connections that were created with friends. God revealed to me over the course of two years that He would never leave me. His love was here to stay.

Why does God love you?
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
The proof of the Father’s love was in the gift of Jesus Christ who died for my sins.
God loves you because He wanted you to be part of His family. In the beginning, He said let’s make them in our own image. He wants you to come into the full knowledge of who you really are. Here’s the truth; You are a child of God. Repeat this to yourself. “ I am a child of God.” that was created in His image. He set it up that way so that wherever you go, His love will continue to chase after you. His love finds you even when you are hidden. His image shines right through you for the world to see the goodness of God’s love.
