I just read an excellent book called, "Come Thirsty" by Max Lucado. I love that he writes in parables. If you can draw me into a story, it just sticks better.
At the end of the book there was a section called, "A Letter From G0d". It spoke to this thirsty soul. It is a little lengthy, so I will divide it into parts. He compiled Scripture into this wonderful letter. What a mighty God we have. He loves to encourage us!
Dear Child of Mind,
Are you thirsty? Come and drink. I am the one who comforts you. I bought you and complete you. I delight in you and claim you as my own, rejoicing over you as a bridegroom rejoices over his bride. I will never fail you or forsake you.
Accept My Work
I know your manifold transgressions and your mighty sins, yet my grace is sufficient for you. I have cast all your sins behind my back, trampled them under my feet, and thrown them into the depths of the ocean! Your sins have been washed away, swept away like the morning mists, scattered like the clouds. Oh, return to me, for I have paid the price to set you free.
Your death is swallowed up in victory. I disarmed the evil rulers and authorities and broke the power of the devil, who had the power of death. Blessed are those who die in the Lord. Your citizenship is in heaven. Come, inherit the kingdom prepared for you where I will remove all your sorrows, and there will be no more death or sadness or crying or pain.
Your Maker, Your Father,
