I Love The Lord

When we think about how good The Lord has been to us, and how He has watched over us with loving kindness, it is evidence to us how much The Lord loves and cares about us.  The Lord does not need to tell us that He loves us because every day He shows His amazing love for us, by pouring into our lives His mercy and grace. Conversely, we need to tell The Lord every day that we love Him, and then we need to show Him that we love Him, by being a blessing to those He places in our paths. 

There is no way we could be where we are right now, if it had not been for The Lord who has been with us every step of the way.  There were times when there was no one to listen to us, and there was no one there for us, but when we called on The Lord He was right there with us and He answered us.  The Scripture reminds us that, I love the Lord, because he has heard my voice and my pleas for mercy.  I encourage you today to show your love for The Lord by being a blessing to someone and showing them what loving The Lord looks like. 

You may be the arms that The Lord needs to wrap around someone today.  You may be the voice that The Lord wants to use to give someone that encouraging word that they need to make it through their day.  The Lord still answers prayer, and He will answer you when you call on Him.  I can declare without a doubt that I love The Lord for a multitude of reasons.  I love Him because He hears me when I pray, and He also answers me when I pray. 

Since I know that I love The Lord and He loves me, and I am grateful that He answers my prayers I have no doubt, “It’s My Year To Get My Thing From My God!”


Lord I love you, thank you for answering me when I pray. In Jesus name Amen.
