My heart tonight

Dear God,

Today was one of those crazy kind of days where I saw Your goodness at every turn. When I was overwhelmed with the thought of death, You reminded me that You overcame the grave so that I never have to. You reminded me that no one is out of your reach.
When I really thought it was going to be too hot for a bike ride that I honestly didn't want to take, you gave me an awesome breeze and the power in my legs to peddle those miles like it was just one. I saw the magnificence of the sky that You painted today. It was beautifully amazing.
I often wonder what you have on mind about some things but over and over you teach me about how important it is to be raised up at the right time and by you and you alone.
Lord I thank you for teaching me to give and receive grace. I see the handiwork that you continually weave and it leaves me in awe of your greatness. 
Sometimes I know that I'm ungrateful but God I loveYou. I'm sorry for being a jerk, I'm sorry for all the times I don't wait on You and try to go my way.
God please let me see things and people like you see them. Lord, let me love like you love!

God help me to be more like you, to fall more and more in love with you, to find your word some thing I cannot live without. 

I loveyou Jesus 

Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us. This is how we know that we live in him and he in us: He has given us of his Spirit. And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent his Son to be the Savior of the world. If anyone acknowledges that Jesus is the Son of God, God lives in them and they in God. And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them. This is how love is made complete among us so that we will have confidence on the day of judgment: In this world we are like Jesus. There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love. We love because he first loved us. (1 John 4:7-19 NIV)
