1 John 3:1
See how great a love the Father has bestowed upon us, that we should be called the children of God; and such we are!


1 John 2:12-13
I am writing to you, little children, because your sins are forgiven you for His name's sake.
I am writing to you, fathers, because you know Him who has been from the beginning.
I am writing to you young men, because you have overcome the evil one.
I have written to you, children, because you know the Father.


Love in the Midst In the midst of daily struggles, I know the meaning of Your love. Even little misunderstandings bring me closer to You above.

As the dawn breaks each morning, through pink clouds or gray, I eagerly look forward to sharing time with You another day.   Your patience with my restlessness, Your kindness despite my faults, Only You can give this kind of love; giving - yet maybe receiving naught.

I find the more I try to understand, the less I need to know. Your love is not to be defined, because it continues to grow.   When I recognize Your love inside me, and allow it to come out Through smiles, kind words or gentle deeds, that's when I want to shout! You did it! I can't love like this on my own! You poured Your love right through me with joy I've never known.  

Joy really is more than happiness; even in sadness it can dwell. And the most amazing part, I have Your heart, causing mine to swell. Compassion for people, never giving up on them, encouraging to the end.

Your love grows by giving it away, and that comes only from a Friend.   In spite of our accusations or greed or playing the game You reach out to each of us, and freely love each the same.

Love one another, as I have loved you.
John 15:12

When two or more are gathered together in My name, I am there in your midst.
Matthew 18:20  


So questions are pursuing you?
I AM the Answer.

So struggles are weakening you?
I AM your Strength.

So murmuring has come against you?
I AM the Truth.

So you have felt lost?
I AM the Way.

So death seems imminent?
I AM the Life.

So much seems undone?
I AM the Beginning and the End.

So you have seemed alone?
I will never leave you.

So you have felt unworthy?
Worthy is the Lamb, who died for you.|

No matter what comes against you, I love you
with an everlasting love and nothing shall
separate you from the love of God.
