The following message from GodVine appeared in my inbox this afternoon, perfectly timed of course, since I’ve been struggling lately to really believe that God hears me and cares about my life. I know He takes us through trials, often very difficult ones, to bring us closer to Him and strengthen our faith and trust. How I long to do that… This message reminded me that God is near, always, if we just take the time to see the beauty in all that He created and the multitude of blessings He bestows upon us each day. I hope the message blesses you as well.
“God is showing us and telling us how much He loves us everyday. When you see the sun rising over the mountains, feel the cool breeze kissing your face, and hear the sweet songs of birds blessing your ears that is God saying, ‘I love you.’ When you see the adoring eyes of your dog looking up at you and feel the gentle brush of your cat against your hand that is God saying, ‘I love you.’ When you hear music that uplifts your soul with joy and read words that make your heart and mind soar into the heavens that is God saying, ‘I love you.’ When you hear the laughter of children playing and feel the warm hug of your own child against you that is God saying, ‘I love you.’ When you have the loving support of your family and the wonderful kindness of your friends no matter what you are going through that is God saying, ‘I love you.’ When you find your thoughts and feelings always leading you towards growth, learning, love, and joy that is God saying, ‘I love you.’ When your life’s circumstances both good and bad help you to keep growing stronger, better, happier, and more loving each day that is God saying, ‘I love you.'” firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks, God! I love you too.
