Our Heavenly Father Loves His Daughters!

It’s quite a journey, trying to understand how our heavenly Father sees us, His daughters.  Despite the words in the Bible, life and circumstances can distort our view of Him and how we believe He sees us.  While recent life events have certainly intensified my desire to really understand how He truly sees me and be able to believe what His Word says about me, I looked back to a journal entry I made almost exactly a year ago.  It’s interesting to read what you wrote months ago and even more interesting to see the challenges you’ve gone through that actually put you in a position to better understand what was at that point in time, really a hope not a revelation.  I felt a strong desire to share this journey with other women who are curious, struggling or are discovering themselves what it means to be the daughter of the Creator.  My hope and prayer is that it will begin speaking to you the way it is now speaking to me as I continue on my quest of having implicit confidence in my heavenly Father to take amazing care of me, my family, my friends and those He brings across my path.   Welcome!  And I can’t wait to see where this journey brings us to as individuals and as a collective…I’m My Father’s Daughter and together We are our Father’s Daughters!

Be God Loves Me Minded – God loves me.  My heavenly Father absolutely and truly loves me.  My God has only thoughts of good towards me.  My God is for me, so who can be against me?  My God created a way for me to be with Him always, to ensure I was in a position to receive all He has in mind for me.  Jesus gave His life, laid down His position in heaven, came to earth, conquered death, hell and the grave, so that I could retain my right standing with my Father.  While I was yet a sinner, Christ died for ME.
A Daughter’s Prayer – Holy Spirit I humbly ask that you would open the eyes of my spirit, reveal to me how much I am loved by my Father.  Help me truly experience His vast and amazing love.  Bask in the light of His presence.  Help me truly understand His perfect love and that perfect love casts out all fear.
I am nothing without Him, but in Christ I am everything I am supposed to be.  May the knowledge of this truth truly set me free.  May my Father’s goodness overcome the evil that has tried to rule my mind and emotions.
I am my Father’s daughter.  I am highly favored.  Everything my Father gave Jesus is mine.  I am lavished with every good and perfect gift.  There is nothing too difficult for my Father.  He is working out a marvelous plan for my life that is super abundantly, far above anything I could ask, hope or think.
I am my Father’s daughter and nothing can harm me and nothing can pluck me from His hand.  I am fully His and He is completely mine.
In Jesus’s holy name.  Amen.

  1. When my kids were little we’d tease them that whichever one was in our presence was our favorite. They’d run off and tell the other child, “I’m the favorite!” And when that other child would come to us we’d say, “They’re crazy! YOU’RE my favorite!” I have come to see that is how God sees me. I’m His favorite. You’re His favorite…we’re all His favorite. It’s something that makes me feel loved and special, knowing I’m the favorite child of God.

  2. Kari this was wonderfully written and very touching. Thank you for taking the time to share this. As women I believe we spend a great deal of time sacrificing ourselves and our time for others. It is always good to be reminded that the Father allowed the ultimate sacrifice of his son, because he does love us so much and wants us to be happy and our needs to be filled. This was inspired :)
    Love you!

  3. I believe, as our Father’s Daughters, we have a God given, innate desire to share our lives. Our Father has encouraged us to bind together in love and build up our most Holy Faith. This is a perfect way to share our love for Christ and while doing so, encourage and strengthen one another in beautiful ways and words.

    Thanks, Kari, for providing us with this opportunity and place!

  4. A precious friend shared this Scripture with me as she was striving to teach her 4 year old boy that Jesus has more power than even the superhero’s he is enthralled with at this time in his life. “ I also pray that you will understand the incredible greatness of God’s power FOR US who believe Him. This is the same power that raised Christ from the dead and seated Him in the place of honor at God’s right hand in the heavenly realms.” Ephesians 1:19-20
    She also went on to share in Chapter 3, “I pray that from His glorious, unlimited resources He will EMPOWER YOU with inner strength through His spirit. Now all glory to God, who is able, through His mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think” (Ephesians 3:16 and 20)

    One might ask, “What does this have to do with understanding that I am my Father’s Daughter? My answer is, EVERYTHING! To understand the power that God has, and that He is concerned about ME, helps me truly believe that HE can protect, empower, and guide me through every circumstance in my life.

    What an exciting journey it is!
