Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. (Philippians 4:4-8 NIV)
So who says that I have to know you to love you?!!
I know we are kinda strangers and all….but I have such a love for you that it’s not on the normal side of this life!
God placed this love deep down within me.
I find myself thinking about you, praying for you and even shedding tears. I rejoice with you when you have good news to share and my heart mourns with you when you are sad. I ask myself what is it about you that draws me near.
“Terra, why on earth do you spend time thinking about people in the midnight hour when you could be sleeping? What about when you could just be relaxing and having some Me, Myself and I time?!!” Have you considered your agenda that’s already filled to the max? ( yes I talk to myself in my head of course! )
These are a few of the questions I ask myself and the answer is JESUS.
You are such a precious and valuable treasure that the Lord loves! I can love you because he loved me first. I sit and wonder how your life is going, wondering if there is anything I can say or do to be a friend, a comforter, a shoulder to cry on or just be an ear to listen and hear you out. I pray for your family and your circumstances. I often pray for your salvation and your wellbeing. You name it and I’ve likely already prayed about it or it’s going to be prayed about.
When you come to mind, I can’t help but ask the Lord to meet your needs. I am so curious about you that I inquire of Him things that I can do as His vessel to be of service to you. I thank the Holy Spirit for guidance. I can’t do much without the greatest GPS to lead me. God is so good.
There is nothing I expect from you in return. It blesses my heart to bless you. Lord knows that I want the best for you and your family. I pray, asking that your life is blessed, that a hedge of protection surrounds you and that every thing you do that is of good standing with the Lord prospers.
Be filled with love, joy, hope and faith!
Beloved, just know that someone in this world loves you even if you think you aren’t loved or deserving of it. God loves you more than anyone on this earth and will never leave you.
Don’t turn your back on Love. God is the Master of Unconditional Love. I can’t love you quite like Him but with all that I have that’s been poured into my soul, I share with you. He gifts me with many blessings that I can’t help but pour back out to you.
Love never stops giving even if you try to fight it. Jesus Christ is the greatest example of Love. I want to be more like him each and every day. May my love and light shine that you will see it and receive it.
Hold on to your faith, cling heavily to the hem of Christ, be stedfast and immovable when life gets rocky. Call on the name of the Lord and he will come to you. Ask Him into your life if you have never met him. Repent and receive. He will welcome you with open arms.
I stand in hope that you are doing well today. I love you and I’m praying for you. If you need me, I’m not too hard to find.
The Lord your God in your midst, The Mighty One, will save; He will rejoice over you with gladness, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing. (Zephaniah 3:17 NKJV)
