You are God's precious daughter

2 Corinthians 6:18
And I will be your Father, and you will be my sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty. 

If you're anything like me, you're quick to forget that you are a
daughter of the King. And you are not only His daughter, but He delights in you. You are the apple of His eye. 
You may have been blessed with a wonderful father here on earth, but even his love doesn't come close to comparing with how much your heavenly Father loves you. Only Christ's love is perfect because He is love (1John 4:8)


I don't know about you, but there are many times that I feel misunderstood, overwhelmed, and just plain feel like nobody understands what I'm going through. Its great to be reminded that even when your parents, friends, husband, boyfriend, sisters etc don't seem to get you, that your heavenly King is right there by your side. He understands you because He made you! He knows your personality, understands your needs and desires, sees your heartaches and disappointments, and loves you passionately and patiently. 
What more could a girl ask for?
To our daddy in heaven, 
    You gave your life so we could have an intimate relationship with you. No one has ever sacrificed so much. Remind us as your daughters how precious we are to you, how you long for us to run to you in our times of need. We so hopelessly try to fix our own messes over and over again. We need you Jesus. Fix our eyes on you that we may walk each day with you by our side until we meet you face-to-face.
We love you, 
Amen
