God’s Children

See what the Father has bestowed on us that we might be called the children of God.  Yet so we are.  The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know God. Beloved, we are God’s children now; what we shall be has not yet been revealed.  We do know that when it is revealed we shall be like God, for we shall see God as God is.  Everyone who has this hope based on God makes himself pure, as God is pure. 

At times we relish the idea of being children of God.  At other times we rebel against the obedience we owe to our loving parent.  None of our thoughts or emotions shock God for God already knows our anxieties, and our celebrations.

God says: Nothing is really new to me and still I am fascinated by you.  I love to spend time listening to your thoughts and words.  And I love watching how you go through your days and nights.  I love protecting and guiding you.  I delight in healing and carrying you when you are weary.  I celebrate when you laugh.  I love everything about and from and in you.  Tell me how you feel when the world shuns you because of your closeness to me.  Bring me both your troubles and your joys.  I have already foreseen them but I want to hear your voice intertwined with mine.  And I want to curl you into my heart for you are my greatest happiness.

No matter what we have done . . . no matter what we have thought . . . no matter what we have said . . . we are loved by God.

Enter the phrase Children of God in the blog search bar and explore your own relationship with God.
