I used to work in a Christian school and every morning all the staff gather for devotions before the daily briefing.
One day, one of my colleagues shared The Father’s Love Letter with us. I’m not going to share it here, and if you would like to read it, click this link .
Something struck as we were watching the video, what if we were to turn the letter around and make it into a Love Letter TO Our Father? How would it read?
Here’s the result. It’s an awesome letter of worship to the One above all others and… as there are many bible verses in this letter that you can use to honour and bless your earthly father. Or why not write the whole letter out for Him?
My Father, Almighty God
I may not know You,
but You know everything about me.
You know when I sit down and when I rise up.
You are familiar with all my ways.
Even the very hairs on my head are numbered.
For I was made in Your image.
In You I live and move and have my being.
For I am Your offspring.
You knew me even before I was conceived.
You chose me when You planned creation.
I was not a mistake,
for all my days are written in Your book.
You determined the exact time of my birth
and where I would live.
I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
You knit me together in my mother’s womb.
And brought me forth on the day I was born.
You have been misrepresented
by those who don’t know You.
You are not distant and angry,
but are the complete expression of love.
1 John 4:16
And it is Your desire to lavish Your love on me.
1 John 3:1
Simply because I am Your child
and You are my Father.
1 John 3:1
You offer me more than my earthly father ever could.
For You are the perfect father.
Every good gift that I receive comes from Your hand.
For You are my provider and You meet all my needs.
Your plan for my future has always been filled with hope.
Because You love me with an everlasting love.
Your thoughts toward me are countless
as the sand on the seashore.
And You rejoice over me with singing.
You will never stop doing good to me.
For I am Your treasured possession.
You desire to establish me
with all Your heart and all Your soul.
And You want to show me great and marvelous things.
If I seek You with all my heart,
I will find You.
If I delight in You and You will give me
the desires of my heart.
For it is You who gave me those desires.
You are able to do more for me
than I could possibly imagine.
For You are my greatest encourager.
2 Thessalonians 2:16-17
You are the Father who comforts me
in all my troubles.
2 Corinthians 1:3-4
When I am brokenhearted,
You are close to me.
As a shepherd carries a lamb,
You have carried me close to Your heart.
One day You will wipe away
every tear from my eyes.
And You’ll take away all the pain
I have suffered on this earth.
You are my Father, and You love me
even as You love Your Son, Jesus.
For in Jesus, Your love for me is revealed.
He is the exact representation of Your being.
He came to demonstrate that You are for me,
not against me.
And to tell you that You are not counting my sins.
2 Corinthians 5:18-19
Jesus died so that You and I could be reconciled.
2 Corinthians 5:18-19
His death was the ultimate expression
of Your love for me.
1 John 4:10
You gave up everything You loved
that You might gain my love.
If I receive the gift of Your Son Jesus,
I receive You.
1 John 2:23
And nothing will ever separate me
from Your love again.
If I come home and You’ll throw the biggest party
heaven has ever seen.
You have always been Father,
and will always be Father.
My question is…
Will I be Your child?
You are waiting for me.
Love, Your Child
