Before I get into the meat of this blog post I wanted to remind you that you are loved and Fearless has many cool things coming up soon that I want to invite you to. This past weekend we hosted a Rescue Retreat and we had such an amazing time together (as you can see in the image, lol). Come have fun with us too by checking out our coming events. https://www.fearlessunite.com/upcoming-events
In my opening message I read a love letter from God that I want to share with you today.
The Father's Love
In the most extraordinary love story ever written, God sacrificed His one and only Son so we could gain eternal life. Can such an unconditional love truly exist—a perfect Heaven-born love, not an imperfect earthbound love? Our human minds have a hard time grasping this kind of love. We only know human love. But the love of God? It's far more remarkable. Take a moment to read this love letter written for you by God.
Sweet child of mine. Before the earth was even formed, I knew you. I knitted you together perfectly in your mother's womb. I have fearfully and wonderfully made you. I have mighty plans for your life, plans to prosper you and not to harm you. I make no mistakes; my works are perfect. I know you so intimately that I have numbered the hairs on your head. Do your most intimate loved ones know that about you? You have no thought or idea that I don't already know about. My love for you is unconditional and is not based on your love for me. My love for you is as deep as the ocean and outnumbers the grains of sand, and yet still, that doesn't even begin to explain my never-ending, steadfast love for you. I sent my only son to die for you so you could have everlasting life. My perfect love for you casts out fear. There is nothing, absolutely nothing, that can separate you from my love. I will be back again someday to get you. Until then, live loved. Live in peace. Live Fearlessly.
Even though this letter was my human attempt to capture the heart of God, I hope you read every word and soak it in. The sentences woven together are promises from His Word. In fact I'll prove it to you below. You can take this letter at face value and believe it. Take a picture of it now and make it your screen saver. Text it to a friend, post it on social media, tell the world that God loves you and remind somebody else that He loves them too.
Promises from The Father's love letter to you.
Sweet child of mine. Before the earth was even formed, I knew you. I knitted you together perfectly in your mother's womb.
“I knew you before I formed you in your mother’s womb. Before you were born I set you apart and appointed you as my prophet to the nations.”
Jeremiah 1:5; NLT
I have fearfully and wonderfully made you.
“I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.”
Psalms 139:14; NIV
I have mighty plans for your life, plans to prosper you and not to harm you.
“ ‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.’ ”
Jeremiah 29:11 NIV
I make no mistakes; my works are perfect.
“He is the rock, His works are perfect, and all His ways are just. A faithful God who does no wrong, upright and just is He.”
Deuteronomy 32:4 NIV
“So God created human beings in His own image. In the image of God He created them; male and female He created them.”
“ For in Him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through Him and for Him.”
I know you so intimately that I have numbered the hairs on your head.
“And the very hairs on your head are all numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are more valuable to God than a whole flock of sparrows.”
Luke 12:7; NLT
You have no thought or idea that I don't already know about.
“O Lord, you have examined my heart and know everything about me. You know when I sit down or stand up. You know my thoughts even when I’m far away.”
Psalm 139:2 NLT
My love for you is unconditional and is not based on your love for me.
“But God demonstrates His own love for us in this: While we were still sinners Christ died for us.”
Romans 5:8 NIV
My love for you is as deep as the ocean and outnumbers the grains of sand, and yet still, that doesn't even begin to explain my never-ending, steadfast love for you.
“ Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God‘s love and keep you strong. And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep His love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.”
Ephesians 3:17-19 NLT
I sent my only son to die for you so you could have everlasting life.
“For this is how God loved the world: He gave His one and only son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life.”
John 3:16 NLT
My perfect love for you casts out fear.
“There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear…”
1 John 4:18 NIV
There is nothing, absolutely nothing, that can separate you from my love.
“ And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God‘s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither are fears for today nor are worries for tomorrow-not even the powers of hell can separate us from God‘s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below-indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
Romans 8:38-39 NLT
I will be back again someday to get you.
“For the Lord himself will come down from heaven with a commanding shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trumpet call of God. First, the believers who have died will rise from their graves. Then, together with them, we who are still alive and remain on the earth will be caught up in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. Then we will be with the Lord forever.”
1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 NLT
Until then, live loved. Live in peace. Live Fearlessly.
This letter and verses prove our Heavenly Father's deep love for you, and I want you to remember that each day boldly. When we create new styles for the Fearless Women shop, we pray and plan for just that, cute styles that remind you of His strength in you.
