Are you at the point of being able to say with conviction, “God loves me deeply after all”?


Write about where you are in accepting God’s grace— not taking it for granted, but not denying it either. Explore in writing how receiving the overwhelming gift of being God’s child has given you spiritual freedom.


God, if you are real, make yourself real to me. Awaken in me the awareness that I am your unconditionally loved child.
Since … you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God. When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.
— Colossians 3:1-4
