A Love Letter

“Since you are precious and honored in my sight, and because I love you…” Isaiah 43:4

Dear Child,

I love you.

I love you with an everlasting, never-ending, no-matter-what-happens love. (Jeremiah 31:3)

I love you even if you: yell at your kids, lie, cheat on your taxes, speed down the freeway, ignore me or put yourself down.

I love you no matter what. (Psalm 66:20)

I love you when: you are exhausted and feel sorry for yourself. You are exhausted and have a great attitude. You are grieving. You are laughing. You are sinning. (Psalm 86:5 and 86:13)

I love you if: there is no if.

You can know I love you because:

I sent Jesus to die for you so we could have a forever relationship. (John 3:16)
I say it in my Word. (Isaiah 43:4)
I pour my love into you through the Holy Spirit. (Romans 5:5)
I don’t let anything separate you and my love. (Romans 8: 35-39)
I am love. (1 John 4:8)

I love you!

This Valentine’s Week you may get roses or not, or a card or not, or a date or not. You may hate the day because you are lonely or because you don’t like the one you’re with. You may love every minute of this week because you are a romantic or because you are blissfully in love.

How you see this week is how you see it.

But what I care about is your heart that I adore. (Ezekiel 36:26)

I cherish you.

In fact, I delight in you! (Zephaniah 3:17) (Psalm 18: 19)

I love you!

Just wanted you to know.

The relentless pursuer of your heart,
