This Is What Love Looks Like

"We love because He first loved us." 1 John 4:19

This is going to be a very personal post today. It is just something I NEED to say.
I have been overwhelmed recently by God's love. I am IN LOVE with Him. Everything about Him. He is my first love.
Our church services yesterday were so amazing, and I can feel God all around me there. We do not normally have a Sunday evening service, but we have a night of worship once a quarter. We had been having 21 days of prayer, and we concluded it with a night of worship that included baptisms. It was so powerful.
This is how I feel about God and what He has done for me: (and He will do for you too)
1. Has unconditional love
2. Will never leave me
3. Provides for my needs
4. Redeems me
5. Lifts me up when I am down
6. Helps me when I'm afraid
7. Wants the best for me
8. Takes away my anxiety
9. Heals me
10. Speaks to me
I love Him so much. I am overwhelmed by it. I pray, read my Bible, and devotionals....He speaks, I hear Him, I worship Him in song. It's just an amazing feeling.
Is my life perfect? HECK NO!!!!!
But I would not want it any other way. I can not, for the life of me, figure out how people live without Him. I couldn't do it. I don't want to do it. I am fully, completely, totally surrendered to Him. 
Probably more now than ever before.
And you know what else? I DO NOT care what anyone else thinks. Am I a Jesus Freak? YEP!
Proud of it!
In all honesty... the whole reason I'm writing this, is because I want this for you. 
I want you to feel like I do about Him. I want you to encounter Him like I have. 
Will you let Him invade your life? It's so worth it. 
If you need prayer, contact me. I want to pray for you. Even if it's prayer about establishing a quiet time with Him, attending church, going to small groups or Sunday school, or just life in general. I'm here and honored to pray.
God bless you today an always.
