I read a love letter today. I’m still thinking about it. He loves me. He’s crazy about me. He believes the best in me, even though He’s seen me at my worst. His words make my spirit come alive; they bring me hope in a dark world. In His letters to me, He always reminds me that I’m not alone; that I can run to Him and He will protect me. He promises a great future for me. “Just trust Me,” He says.

Morning after morning I pour over His letters thinking of them throughout the day. Whenever I’m having a hard day, even just a few words from His letter seem to make it better. Sometimes my own words even feel inadequate to express the significance of His words or do them justice. Because you see, His Words were written with me on His heart– still not sure if I fully grasp that.

Go ahead, open your love letter today from Him. He’s written it with you on His mind. He promises to love you, build you up and esteem you. Not because of anything you’ve done or will do- but just because you’re you and He loves you!

Lord, thank you for Your written love letters to us, the Bible. Reveal yourself to us as we read it and come alive in our hearts. Let Your Word penetrate anything that would block us from receiving all that You want to say to us today. Amen
