Beloved, consider yourself as a child of God, for so you are. God is your Father, and as a Father, He loves you deeply, unconditionally, and without end. He seeks your well-being and your growth, just as a good earthly father would for his own child.

Remember the words I spoke: 'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.' This is the first and greatest commandment (Matthew 22:37-38). In this, consider your relationship with God as one of love, reverence, and devotion.

But also remember the parable of the prodigal son (Luke 15:11-32). This story illustrates God's boundless love and forgiveness. Even when we turn away from Him, He waits patiently and welcomes us back with open arms when we return.

Consider yourself in communion with God, for God is within you, and you are in God. As I have said, 'The kingdom of God is within you' (Luke 17:21). Therefore, seek God in the quiet moments of prayer and reflection, and know that you are never alone.

Above all, trust in God's wisdom and providence. As a child trusts in the care and guidance of their parents, so should you trust in God. Even in times of difficulty, trust that God is working for your good. As it is written, 'And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him' (Romans 8:28).

Lastly, remember to show love to others, for in doing so, you show love to God. As I have commanded, 'A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another' (John 13:34). In loving others, you mirror the love of God, and through this, you deepen your relationship with Him.
