Many people will take some time over the next few days trying to finalize their 2014 New Year's Resolutions. Perhaps you're looking at new ways to implement discipline for your body with healthy eating habits or exercise, maybe you're wanting to get back into church, read your Bible more, or you're considering spending more time doing the things that matter, maybe you're setting goals, deadlines, and things of the like. Instead of a New Year's Resolution, every January I pick something to do everyday that will bless Jesus' heart. It's kind of like my month long happy birthday, let's fall more in love this year, gift. This year after some prayer and thought I have decided to invite you guys in on what I'll be doing to kick off the New Year and ask you to join me, because I know He'll like it!
Every day of January we will be writing love letters to Him. Start a new journal or buy some new paper and take a few minutes everyday to write Him a love letter. Be restored to the joy of your salvation as you journey through your life and remember when you first fell in love with Him. Tell Him how much you need Him and want Him. Let Him know how thankful you are for Him and the blessings He's given you. Take this first month of the year to really spend dedicated time to focusing on why you love Him.
We serve a God who loves us more than we can even fathom, what a great gift to remind Him that we love Him too. So, as this New Year begins I invite you to join me every day for the month of January to write a love letter to Jesus.
If you decide to join in send me a message and let me know. I believe having this time set aside to specifically profess your love to Him everyday will not only bless His heart, but will do great things for your heart as well.
Be Blessed, J. Tate
