To My oftentimes weary child~
“When you believe the lie of religion that you can gain and maintain My favor by things you do by your own effort and
ability, you are fighting against My current of ever-flowing grace and living water.
It’s much like swimming against the current of the Mississippi River. You can never win! You will always tire out and end
up weary, discouraged and disappointed. Instead, Come to Me!
When you’re tired, worn out and burned out on religion, come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll
show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace.
I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.
Picture yourself floating on an unsinkable, indestructible raft going with the current on a great river. There’s no effort
on your part—it’s easy and relaxing and enjoyable! Let me take you where I want. Let me live My life in you, through you
and as you. Change your mindset from “do” to “done!” Relax and enjoy abundant life with Me!” ~Love, Papa
August 16 16 A Short Note From Papa
To My very special and wonderful child~
“I often remind you of who you really are: My own child, made in My image: pure, holy, right with me, innocent and perfect.
Now I know that you question how that can be true when you still make mistakes. You wonder why you sometimes think and even
do “evil” things.
Jesus told you all that your enemy, the thief/accuser/liar/condemner/accuser/one-who-is-totally-evil, does not want you to
know who you are and part of his strategy of deception is to tempt you to do evil. He lies and tells you that “you deserve
it,” “it will feel good,” “it will benefit you,” “no one will know.” Then the minute that you do what he tempts you with,
he condemns and accuses you. He also lies to you and tells you that because “god wants to punish other people, it’s ok for
you to as well.”
In part, that’s how the evil one gets you and others to do evil.
Yes, My children sometimes “do” evil things. But that never affects My love for you and never affects your identity...who
you really are. Always know that!” ~Love, Papa
August 15 16 A Short Note From Papa
To My child whom I made in My own image and likeness~
You don’t usually give a lot of thought to who you really are. Because you have experienced humans judging you and
sometimes rejecting you because of your mistakes, you have believed the lie that you ARE those mistakes.
You have also believed the lie that since I’m able to know all your mistakes, that there’s no way I could love and accept
you. Yes, I am able to recall all your mistakes, but for My own sake…and yours, I choose not to! What parent would ever
keep a list of all their child’s mistakes and then review that list and hold it against them? Certainly not Me!
I focus only on who I made you to be…My child created in My image and likeness!
In addition, when you died with Jesus at the cross, I raised you to new Life as a New Creation, perfect, pure, holy,
right with Me and innocent. That’s who you really are. Remember that truth every second of every day.
I want you to for your benefit!” ~Love, Papa
August 12 16 A Short Note From Papa
To My wonderful child who has My identity~
“You have a totally different identity than what you have believed. You have a totally different identity than what you
have thought. You have a totally different identity than what society and the world have told you that you have. You are
a New Creation!
You have been taught that you were born a “sinner,” even that you are “totally depraved.” You have been taught that your
heart is desperately wicked and no good at all. You have been taught that you are “sinful” and separated from God. Those
are all lies that religion has taken straight from the evil one.
The truth…My Truth is that at Jesus’s finished work at the cross, everyone who had ever lived and who ever would live,
died with Jesus. He took all the sin of the world away, We forgave it and never hold it against anyone. When We raised
Him from the dead, we raised you…and everyone else with Him as New Creations In Christ. We gave you all new life in Christ.
You are pure, holy, innocent, right with us, one with us, and one spirit with us. You are the apple of My eye! You have
Our DNA. You are perfect! Your actions, your thoughts, what you can see, and what others say--may cause you to think
differently, but those are temporary and fleeting. What is true about you is eternal and unseen to the human eye. But I
have given you supernatural eyes to see and ears to hear who you really are! You are Mine, you are good, and I love you
and am SO for you!!!” ~Love, Papa
August 11 16 A Short Note From Papa
To My delightful child whom I really like~
“I want you to absolutely know today…and every day…that I like you! I like everything about you. I’m the only one who
knows you—warts and all—and still likes everything about you! I delight in you! I rejoice over you! I sing and dance over
you! I think more thoughts about you than there are stars in the sky and pebbles of sand on all the beaches. And all my
thoughts are good!
I know that’s hard for you to believe because you’ve experienced the opposite with other relationships and because
religion has lied to you about Me. That’s why I’m telling you the truth about how I feel about you…and I will continually
remind you, over and over and over again! I never tire of expressing my love, delight and joy over you.
I love you because I am love and I can do nothing but love. I like you because you are made in My likeness and image and
you are in Christ and Christ is in you. I like you because you are My child and the apple of My eye! I have the
supernatural ability to see who you really are: pure, holy, good, right with me, innocent, and perfect. There’s nothing
for me not to like about you!
Of course I hurt – temporarily – when you hurt or when you hurt others. But I can see the end result: who you really are
and what it will be like when I finally restore everything and everyone to My original intent. It’s all good and you’re
all good. Know that I like you…really!!!” ~Love, Papa
August 10 16 A Short Note From Papa
To My very special, delightful child~
“You know that Jesus and I are one…and when He was on earth, He was the exact representation of Me. He was fully human…and
fully God. However he emptied Himself of His divine supernatural abilities and lived fully human…just as you are! Of course
He was fully in tune with Me and only said and did what I asked Him to.
That means that most of the time, Jesus “gave up His right to be right.” Of course He was right about everything! He, The
Holy Spirit and I designed and created everything and He sustains everything! He knew that everything lived and breathed
and had their very life in Him! So can you imagine what it was like for Him to not correct everyone about most everything
they said or thought?
Jesus knew that in relationships, there’s no need and it’s actually counter-productive to always be correcting others and
proving that you’re right and they are wrong. No one wants to be around someone like that. Unless it’s a matter of safety
or to keep someone from harm or harming someone else, there’s usually no need to “prove that you’re right about something.”
Just let it go.
Then love unconditionally, give grace, forgive unconditionally and let Our Holy Spirit do the work of showing the other
person (and you) when you’re wrong about something. That’s what We want and you’ll find that your relationships go much
better when you take that approach!’ ~Love, Papa
ugust 9 16 A Short Note From Papa
To My delightful child whom I enjoy in every way~
“I want you to see how our friendship is much more like jazz music than classical. A Classical musician may be extremely
talented, dedicated and knowledgeable, but classical music is limited to just playing the written notes on a page.
There is very little freedom. The notes must be played exactly as written and there is tremendous pressure to perform
flawlessly. Any wrong note stands out and is quickly judged and disdained by critics.
Jazz music, however is spontaneous, free, and unfettered. There is a structure to a song, but within it spontaneity,
improvisation and creativity are encouraged, affirmed and applauded. Jazz musicians “feed off each other” and inspire
creativity, interplay and connectedness in a playful, mutually encouraging way.
There’s much great classical music and I’m not condemning it or any musicians. I just want you to see the difference
between a rigid, limited, confined, stress-filled performance setting and a free, fun, relaxed, no-stress relationship
that fosters creativity, spontaneity and mutual playfulness. That’s what I’m all about!” ~Love, Papa
August 8 16 A Short Note From Papa
To My very special child who is My address on earth~
“I live in you! I chose to before the creation of anything and I have always been in you…you have always been in Christ!
I was in you when you were only 1 cell! I was always in you in your mother’s womb. I have always been in you and with you
and I will never leave you!
The Holy Spirit of Christ – whom Jesus and I are one with...lives in you. Our Spirit communicates with your spirit—we are
literally One Spirit! When you hear true Truth from us directly or via another person, book, nature, music, whatever…your
spirit resonates like a tuning fork with Our Spirit in you.
And…when you see Christ in someone else…anyone else (because we’re in everyone), your spirit resonates with Our Spirit in
that other person. When you see them doing something good, being joyful, being compassionate, giving grace and mercy,
speaking love and grace, relating well, using their gifts…when you see those in someone else, your spirit resonates with
Our Spirit in them!
Choose life! Choose to see and connect with and resonate with Our Life in each person you come in contact with. Everyone
belongs! Everyone is in Our Family. Jesus created all people. All are in Him. He is in and for and through all. As you
come to see Christ in you and Christ in others, you will experience the harmony of the vibration of Our music in you.
Your heart will be touched…and so will theirs. Everyone belongs…to us!” ~Love, Papa
August 5 16 A short Note From Papa
To My child whom I have made completely free~
“I have made you completely free…free from the Law, from sin, death and evil. Believing lies about the Law, sin, death and
evil will cause you to live as a slave and to measure your life by religion’s concept of right and wrong based on
performance. I have made you completely free from all of that.
Religion is the false belief that My children have to perform to gain and maintain My favor. That is absolutely false!
Religion says you must fit its specific requirements to be right with Me. Of course all of the thousands of
denominations in the world as well as all the independent churches and religious organizations each have their specific
list of what you must do or not do to gain and maintain My favor. That is religion and I am not in religion.
Jesus set you free from all religion!
Jesus didn’t come to establish the “Christian Religion,” nor did He come to empower you to keep the rules and laws of the
Jewish Religion. Jesus set you free from all religion and made you completely right with us so that you can experience
and enjoy your inclusion in our divine Triune relationship of love and everything good that flows from our love!
Run from religion! Stay away from all religion. You cannot serve two masters. You can’t mix law with grace. Embrace our
grace, believe Me, trust Me, enjoy Me, rest in Me. Religion: NO! Union with us: YES!!!” ~Love, Papa
August 4 16 a Short Note From Papa
To My delightful child who is totally under My grace~
You are going to encounter well-meaning, but misguided people who unfortunately believe the lie that they are under the
Old Covenant Law. I’m not mad at them and I’m not punishing them. The Law itself punishes. It has no ability or power
to help anyone keep it…all the Law can do is point out sin. The Law actually arouses sin and the very power and strength
of sin is the Law!
While Jesus lived and taught under the Law (We didn’t abolish and do away with it until our finished work at the cross),
His purpose was to “up the ante” of the Law to such an obviously unattainable height that people would know it was
impossible to keep, quit trying, and instead accept Jesus’s salvation in lieu of trying to keep the Law to gain and
maintain our favor.
So Jesus reminded them that the penalty for adultery was stoning a person to death…but He said that even having a lustful
thought made them guilty of adultery, so they should “pluck their eye out” to keep them from lusting. Obviously no one did
that…Jesus’s example was ridiculously unachievable! That made our point!
So I want you to learn from Jesus! Have nothing to do with the Law. Believe us, trust us, depend on our grace demonstrated
by Jesus’s finished work at the cross as the only means to a right relationship with us. You are under Grace, not Law!
Gently remind those who don’t yet believe the truth of these things. Refuse to be angry with them and to return evil
for evil. Love them and give them Grace. One day, they too, will be captivated by the light of My love and grace and truth.
I promise!” ~Love, Papa
August 3 16 A Short Note From Papa
To My very special child who is totally encompassed in My love and grace~
I want you to absolutely know that the “if-then” system is no more! When the Hebrews begged for Me to just give them a
list of “do’s and don’t’s” rather than have a relationship with Me, I gave them what they requested…The Law. The Law was
an impossible-to-keep system of “If you do this, then I’ll reward you. If you don’t do this, then I’ll punish you.” That
system is spelled out in Deuteronomy 28.
That system is no longer in place. By Jesus’s finished work at the cross, We set that system aside (it never worked to
begin with). We made it obsolete and We abolished it. That happened 2,000 years ago. No one since Jesus’ finished work
at the cross has ever been under the law. It has been null and void since then and has been replaced by our New Covenant
There is NO “IF-THEN SYSTEM NOW!!!” I bless you all—everyone—because I choose to, because I am love and grace, because
I want to. The blessings that I have already poured out on you and everyone (and that I continually pour out on you and
everyone) are free, unmerited, undeserved, and totally given without any requirements, limits or expectations of
You have been saved…been made whole and right with us…by grace. And that is through and as a result of Jesus’s faith!
Now experience and enjoy our Grace!” ~Love, Papa
August 2 A Short Note From Papa
To My very special child who is not under Law, but under My Grace~
You know that the Hebrew scripture…what you call The Old Testament, is commonly referred to as “The Law.” You must also
know that as a result of Jesus’s finished work at the cross, The Law was made obsolete, it was set aside, abolished, and
replaced with our New Covenant of Grace.
You are not under the Law (the Hebrew Scripture), you are under Grace…our New Covenant of Grace!
When Jesus incarnated and became one of you, as a Jew, He was under the law and as a Jewish Rabbi, He taught the law.
He had a dual-tract ministry: First to raise the bar of the law so high that you all would see the utter futility of
trying to keep it in order to gain and maintain a right relationship with Me; and Second – to reveal who I am to the
world in which not a single person knew Me!
As Jesus revealed Me—what I am actually like (not what the world then thought I was like), He revealed that I am
unconditional love and My love never fails! He revealed that We are passionately obsessed with community with you all!
He revealed that our grace covers everything in your relationship with us and that We have accepted and included everyone
in our relationship! Listen to Jesus…He knows the truth, He is Truth!” ~ Love, Papa
August 1 A Short Note From Papa
To My most wonderful child whose heart is pure and totally good~
Today I want you listen to Me very carefully—what you’re about to hear is of supreme importance to you! YOUR HEART IS PURE
AND TOTALLY GOOD! You must know that to ever experience and enjoy the wonderful, abundant zoe-life that I have given you.
Yes, there is a verse in the Hebrew scripture that says the human heart is desperately wicked. You must know that what you
call the “Old Testament” was only written to the Hebrew people…it was never written to anyone else.
Yes, you can learn some things from the Hebrew scriptures…things like the futility and impossibility of humans keeping The
Law and the consequences of people believing the lie that they are separated from Me. You can learn how My mercy and grace
and love never end. You can learn about my desire and will for the ultimate restoration of all people and all things.
You can also learn about My promise to remove your old heart and give you a new heart that is pure and good and totally
right with Me. I did that when I had the old you die with Jesus and raise from the dead with Jesus as a New Creation.
You…and your heart…are ALL GOOD. Believe Me!” ~Love, Papa
July 29 16 A Short Note From Papa
To my very special child whom I have “graced” totally~
You will never, ever be able to comprehend or grasp or understand the vast extent of My love expressed as grace to you!
Even for all eternity…which has no end…you’ll never see or experience the full extent of My grace for you…and everyone!
However I totally delight in being with you each day as you experience a little more and more of My grace.
My grace was poured into your life before creation, before you were conceived or born. Before creation we loved you and
chose you and created you in Christ Jesus and lavished all our grace on you. Then in time and space we manifested our
love and grace for you at Jesus’s finished work at the cross. Then we rejoiced when you were conceived and born!
Our grace was poured into your life when you had nothing to do with it. Even when you think you are unlovable and don’t
merit anything from us, our love and grace totally fills you. You are immersed in our love and grace because we immersed
you in Christ on the cross!
Grace is totally the choice of the giver…Me! Grace makes no demands, it just gives! I so loved the world (first) that I
then gave Jesus (total grace) so that no one would perish. Grace gives and gives and gives! Grace is unconditional
acceptance given to an undeserving person by an unobligated giver! You have no control over us or our love or grace!
Grace is our divine enablement for you to be all we have created you to be and do all that we created for you to do…which
is all good!
Taste and see that I am good. Your appetite will be whetted and you will want more and more…which is wonderful,
because I delight in giving you more and more!” ~Love, Papa
