So, for a little while now I've been reading the blog of a girl who is also named Talia. She is a beautiful girl and a talented writer, and she is very special. It is her birthday today, and I wanted to help make it extra special for her, because sometimes I think she forgets how wonderfully made she is...how loved she is.
Dear (other) Talia,
These letters were written just for you. Yes, YOU specifically. You may not know these people (and you hardly know me), but we care about you. God cares about you...more than you could ever imagine. Don't ever think that you are alone. God says in His Word that He will NEVER leave you and NEVER forsake you. I am praying for you. I hope with all my heart that you will put your trust in Jesus and give your life over to Him - to the One who bled and died and rose again...all for you, because He loves you that much. I hope these notes make your birthday a little bit more special. Much love <3 .="" p="">God bless you.
These are some verses that show just how aware He is of every one of our struggles:
and you know me.
2 You know when I sit and when I rise;
you perceive my thoughts from afar.
3 You discern my going out and my lying down;
you are familiar with all my ways.
4 Before a word is on my tongue
you, Lord, know it completely.
5 You hem me in behind and before,
and you lay your hand upon me.
6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
too lofty for me to attain.
all the days ordained for me were written in your book
before one of them came to be.
(Psalm 139:1-6 and 16)
However, I want to establish that this does not mean that after you believe in Him, your life is going to be all roses and rainbows. In fact, life will likely be harder. But God wants you to grow to love and depend on Him more, the reason why He gives you tribulation. If you’re forced to have faith in Him, your life will be enriched. And you have eternal life in Heaven to look forward to when you die.
I think you are a wonderful creation that has incredible potential in God’s Name. You are not worthless. You. Are. Loved.
We love you, Talia...and most importantly, God loves you. Happy Sweet Sixteen ♥.3>
