It’s valentines day tomorrow! Thinking beyond the cliche of boyfriend/girlfriend dating, I remembered God and wrote out my valentines day letter to Him in my journal. I just want to share it here in the blog.
Today I just want to celebrate with God of all the things, people and talents He has blessed me with. Lord thank you for:
My fiance – A wonderful, wonderful woman who loves You and knows You and fears You. Thank You that she is everything I’ve always dreamed of and more. Thank You that she is very thoughtful and sweet and very wise and knowledgeable. She is imperfectly perfect for me. Thank you Lord for her.
My family – a wonderful family that loves and supports me. A wonderful mom who is self sacrificial and oftentimes selfless. She has greatly influenced me and shaped me to become who I am.
Thank you Lord for my brother who has always supported my and looked up to me. Thank you for his selflessness and for his fellowship.
Thank you Lord for my sister who gives me joy and who looks up to me and encourages me at times.
My friends – Thank you Lord that you have brought wonderful friends along my way who have taught me learnings directly and indirectly. Thank you that I have people to laugh and cry with. Who share my tears and pain and problems. Thank You for real friends who were with me when I was down in the mud – and helped me up.
Your mercy and grace and Holy Spirit – Thank you Lord that You give hope to someone so sinful and insignificant as me. Thank You that I can go on and fight and have second chances because of Your great love. Thank You for your Holy Spirit who has guided me and led me through life and through temptation and preachings and writing and giving advice. Indeed You have never left me nor forsaken me.
Our dogs – Thank You Lord for Teddy (our Pom) who has brought so much joy and cuteness in the family. Thank You for Franky who has kept the house guarded and is always happy when we get home.
This blog – Thank You Lord for the blog which You have greatly used to influence a lot of people and bless a lot of lives. Most especially mine. I praise You and I thank You for such an honor and privilege to write for your Glory!
My business – Thank you Lord for the impossibility of my business. It has made a lot of things possible in my life. Thank You Lord for blessing me with the perfect set of gifts and talents to reach out to the SEO industry and be known by thought influencers. It is a wonderful privilege to have this skill. May I ALWAYS use it to honor You and to give You glory. Thank you Lord!
My Team (I just wrote this here) – Thank you Lord for the team you have given me to help me with SEO Hacker. Indeed it is a wonderful privilege to work with these men and my woman. Thank you that I have go-to guys who I can depend on. Thank you that I have managers that carry a LOT of load for me. Thank you for all the writers you have blessed me with. I once asked You to bless me with a team – and You did. And Lord what a great team it is! Thank you!
There are a multitude of other things to thank You for Lord. But even just thanking you for these amazes me already. Praise and thanks from deep within my heart be to Your Name and Glory. Thank you Lord!
This Valentines, I encourage you to write out your own letter to God. There are just so many things to thank Him for. Make yourself fall in love with His grace in your life. Remember all He has done for you – so that you can remember how it is to fall in love with Him.
