Today I Received a Letter...

Wednesday, July 11, 2012

I want to tell you about something I asked for today.
You see, for me something that means more than anything are letters
Hand written words, straight from the heart.
I would take this over just about anything.
It's not something you usually ask for though, because then it kind of loses the power in receiving it and  the feeling that comes knowing someone took the time to write you.

Andrew's Mom and I were having a conversation the other day and she said something that hasn't left my mind since. She challenged me to ask the Lord for a love letter. 
This would be encouragement that no one else could give me and would probably be more than what I even knew I needed.
For the last week or so I have not been able to let this idea leave my head.
But should I ask for this? Seemed somewhat silly in my head. 

Today, I decided when I woke up, that I was going to ask the Lord for a love letter. 

Something to remind me just how much I mean to Him. Something to fill me during this time in my heart where I often find myself feeling somewhat weary and discouraged.

While I still feel there is more to receive, as the Lord so graciously pours himself out when we ask, today I heard song after song on the radio when I was in my car alone of encouraging words. 
I came across this verse today.

I received a text from my grandfather saying I had been on his heart and mind today and that he had covered me in prayer. 
& my Mom sent me a text tonight as I was out on a walk with Andrew that simply said 
"Keep looking up."

None of this may seem big, but each was a simple reminder that God loves me, has blessed me, and that He knows me better than I know myself.

For this season of life, in all of its adjustments and the waiting, I am trying to rest in God's love for me.

Maybe I'll be asking for a new letter each day.

Maybe I was just looking extra hard today and it's shown in some way everyday.

Thank you Lord for writing a love letter just for me.
