Day #365 ... I'm in LOVE!

I just read the post I'd written on my birthday from last year. (Day #1 #Jesus Year #33) It brought a smile to my face immediately. Not only are the few things that I shared as blessings still true, but they have been increased, as well.

This past year has been so amazing, with so many amazing life changes both tangible and emotional I know they have all been the work and pleasure of God. I can remember a prayer asking God to allow me to see his favor in my life, His glory at work, and His presence in even the finest detail. I'd previously felt that I was missing it, and missing out! I no longer wanted my daily grind and life in general to overshadow doors being opened and prayers being answered. I serve a God who loves me, loves to shower me with His goodness, and for me to receive and boast about His love.

As I reflect I remember making my requests, confessing my faith over them, accepting God's will for the outcome and giving thanks every time I thought about it.  By the time it came into fruition my heart, spirit, and mind were ready to receive them.

These are a few of the scriptures that I kept in my spirit throughout my past year...

Lamentations 3:21 
"This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope, it is of the Lord's mercies that we are not consumed. Because his compassion fail not they are new every morning"

James 1:18 
"Of His own will begat he us that we might be a kind of first fruits of all his creations."

James 1:17 
"Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above..."

Romans 8:31
"What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?"

Romans 8:38-39 
"For I am persuaded that neither... powers, nor things present, nor things to come... nor any other creature shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord."

Phillipians 4:13 
"I can do all things through who strengthens me."

John 3:30 
"He must increase, but I must decrease."

1 John 4:4 
"Ye are of God... because greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world."

Phillipians 4:12 
"I know both how to be abased and I know how to abound, every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need."

1 John 4:18 
"There is no fear in love... He that feareth is not made perfect in love."

One of the greatest understandings I have gained is God's love for me.  I'd like to continue this realization into my new year. May each and every amazing experience be guided by and enriched with love.

This years mantra... "I'm in Love"
