You are not forsaken. You are not an orphan. You are not alone. You are a child of God. You are who He says you are.
This week we are celebrating the 1st anniversary of Pastor Louie Giglio’s book Not Forsaken - a book full of life-shifting snippets like the one above. This week, with every purchase of Not Forsaken, we’re including 2 reversible bracelets - one saying “loved daughter”, the other “loved son” - designed to be a wearable reminder of the profound truth that we are sons and daughters of a perfect Father! Keep one for yourself, and gift the other to a family member, friend, coworker, or anyone you’d like to encourage.
Each of us grows up with a common longing and a deep-seated need for a father’s love, support, acceptance, security, and presence in our lives. Sadly, for many, this need is not met, or only partially fulfilled by an earthly dad. As a result, some unknowingly transfer negative perceptions of fathers into their relationships with God. Yet, God longs to be known as a Perfect Father. Through Jesus Christ, this relationship is available to everyone. Through spiritual birth, we all can see, know, and enjoy God as a Perfect Father.
