This spoke to me so deeply I knew I had to share it with you. It is an excerpt from Beth Moore's "Breaking Free" which I highly recommend. Fill in the blanks with your name and let these words penetrate your heart and mind today sweet friends.
My child _____________, I loved you before you were born. I knew what your first and last words would be. I knew every difficulty you would face. I suffered each one with you. Even the ones you didn't suffer with Me. I had a plan for your life before you were born. The plan has not changed, _______________ no matter what has happened or what you have done. You see, I already knew all things concerning you before I formed you. I would never allow any hurt to come into your life that I could not use for eternity, ______________. Will you let Me? Your truth is incomplete unless you view it against the backdrop of My Truth. Your story will forever remain half-finished….until you let Me do My half with your heart. Let Me perfect that which concerns you.
Your Faithful Father
