Oh How My Big Papa Loves Me So

Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve always been a daddy’s girl. I was the usual little girl that would run to the door when she heard the door open. I was that little girl that sat on her daddy’s lap until I was too old and heavy. I was that little girl that loved to run errands and play basketball with him. One thing that touches me even today is that as long as I want something and my dad can make it happen, it will be done. If it’s in reach, I know I got.

The same way that applies to any child and their father, God works even better. He says, “If I think it’s best for you to have, you can have whatever you like. You’re my child, my baby. I got you.” Whether you have an earthly father or a no father at all, I want you to know that you have a Heavenly Father that wants to fulfill your heart’s desires. He knows what’s best for you. Most of all, He will definitely give it to you if He feels that it’s it’s for you to have.

Yes I refer to Him as…Big Papa. Why? Because the same way a child runs to their dad or granddaddy, I would imagine this relationship to be even better. We run to Him. We run to Him when we’re alone. We run to Him when we’re down. We run to him when we’re happy. We run to him when we’re sad. We run to Him when we’re scared. And we run to Him when there’s nothing else that we could possibly say or do to fix a situation or feel better about one.

He’s a BIG GOD. He’s an omnipotent God. He’s a God of yesterday, today, and tomorrow. He’s a God filled with love, mercy, and kindness. He’s a forgiving God. He’s a God that loves you no matter how many mistakes you have or will make. He’s a God of creation and the author of true love. He’s a God of truth and a God of refuge. He’s a great God. There are a lot of things He protects us, shields us, and delivers us from. We have no idea what we could have faced, but He saved us from it.

He’s our papa because we can go to Him for anything. There’s nothing that He can’t handle. He knew that we would mess up from the beginning of time. So, He gave us Jesus. He knew that we needed to be saved so He introduced us to the cross where Jesus shared His blood for us. He shows us the value of forgiveness every time we repent. He shows us that He loves us with the abundance of blessings that we have. He corrects us as we make mistakes. He talks to us. He comforts us. He LOVES US!!

Take that into consideration the next time you pray. Tell him how much you love Him. Let Him know how thankful you are to know Him and be His child. Say to yourself, “I Have a Big Papa that loves me!!”


God I’m so Tired!!!!

God's Child

If you are reading this, you could be in a great mood just scrolling through different blogs like this one. On the other hand, you may have found this blog out of desperation as you constantly google and search for something to give you some type of encouragement. You are probably feeling alone, left behind, voiceless, and ashamed. Or maybe you are feeling in one the happiest moods full of life, laughter, and just awesomeness. As I am writing this, I can tell you that I’m not feeling really motivated. As I was writing in my journal, a thought came to my mind, “Why do I feel so down when I have everything I need, I got sleep last night, and today was okay?” I don’t know. It’s just one of those days.

One thing that I do know for sure is that no matter how you feel, you will always be God’s child. You can make one billion and one mistakes. You can cry yourself to sleep every night. You can look in the mirror and feel like the world’s biggest failure, but God doesn’t see you that way. For every imperfection the world may acknowledge, that is one more thing that makes you the perfect child in God’s eyes. He loves you. He cares for you. He sent his son, Jesus to fulfill the most wonderful mission one could ever fulfill. His son died just for you and me. As we face these hard days and feel like nothing, there is a God looking straight down from heaven saying, “My child is something.” He finds you so beautiful. You are a creation that He is proud of. He smiles when He looks at you. When you hear God’s voice, peace should overwhelm your heart. For every tear you shed, His heart weeps. Why? Because you are God’s child. When your heart feels low, He feels your pain. When you look down at yourself, He says, “My child should see what they mean to me.” You mean the world and more to God. If not, He would not have given His word, His son to shed blood for us, and His love would not have been expressed as it was. You are God’s chosen child. A special, anointed, blessed child in His eyes and that is all that should matter.

God says, “I got you!”

God says, ” I got you just where you need to be right now. At this time, at this moment, you are where I need you to be. Stop looking at what you should do, what you should be doing, or how should be doing. Instead focus on me, focus on being content with where you are, and most of all focus on my presence. I will let you know when it’s time to move forward with your circumstance. Don’t let life tear you down. Your strength comes from me. My son Jesus died for you! YOU ARE MY CHILD, AND I WILL NEVER LET YOU FALL!”

I’m no longer a slave to fear
I am a child of God

From my mother’s womb
You have chosen me
Love has called my name
I’ve been born again into your family
Your blood flows through my veins

I’m no longer a slave to fear
I am a child of God
