Letters from God

I've been a slacker when it comes to sharing what God has been teaching me in my life. I admit, I am so easily distracted by other things that at the time seem so important. Don't you hate those moments when you realize that your priorities are in the wrong place

...or maybe you love them because it's a chance to actually get them in the right place!

I have been challenged through the Wednesday night bible studies at my church (led by my husband actually) to be intentional about spending time with God at least once every day. I don't want it to become a legalistic thing, but more of an encouragement for me! 

It's amazing how differently my day goes when I have taken time to talk with my Father the King! It's not that my days are always necessarily better...but my attitude usually is:)

Have you ever wondered what God would say if you heard Him audibly speak to you? I recently discovered this lovely little devotional book full of love letters from God to his daughters. 

And let's be real here, what girl doesn't absolutely adore love letters? 

Now I know that these are human written letters and not actually from God himself, but they are very biblical and oh so beautiful.
 I think they give a very good idea of how God actually feels about you...his daughter!
*"My Princess...My chosen one,

I chose you before the foundation of the earth to be My princess. You are royalty even when you don't feel like a princess.
I will wait for you until you are ready to start living the amazing plans I have for you. I know you don't know where to begin or how to become what I've called you to be, so let Me teach you day by day.

 Start by recognizing who I am: King of kings and Lord of lords. The Lover of your soul. 

When the two of us meet alone together every day, I will show you how to let go of the things in your life that are holding you back from the blessings I want to give you. 

Remember, My child, just as I have chosen you, I have given you a choice to represent Me to the world. If you are willing, I am here to give you all you need to complete your calling. 

Love, 
Your King and Lord"

"You didn't choose me, I chose you. I appointed you to go and produce fruit that will last so that the Father will give you whatever you ask for, using my name." John 15:16
