My childI call you my child because that is what you are. Your age doesn't matter. When you are nine and when you are ninety, you are always my "child." From the moment you believed in and accepted Jesus' sacrifice, you became my child-precious, loved, valued, cared for, watched over, guided; yes, even disciplined at times. My loce is the love of a perfect Father. My love sent my Son to make this relationship between us possible. Light came into darkness. Joy came to the world.My child by HeavenCalling
My child, take my hand and let's walk through the rest of this life together.
I am with youBeloved child, do you remember when you first accepted the love I offered through my Son? That was a special day for both of us-one I'd waited for since the day you were born. You see, I walked beside you, protected you, and attended to your needs all along. But oh, how thrilling it was when your eyes opened and you acknowledged that I am God-your God!That's when our relationship really grew. Now I look forward to our special times together more than ever.I am with you by HeavenCalling
I love to reveal myself to you through my Word-to help you know more about me. Though you can't physically see me, look with the eyes of your heart: I am as close as the mention of my name.
I love you with an everlasting love, my child. I always have and I always will.
