Sometimes we get busy adding up our troubles and forget to count our blessings. Have you ever sat down and written Jesus a letter? Tell Him what's in your heart.
I am writing this letter to You today to thank you for showing me Your way. Forever, I'll be grateful and praise Your name. I'll never forget the reason You came. Just to think...you'd leave heaven and come to earth to experience human life and a human birth. Having a virgin mother and creator God for a Dad fills my life with joy and makes my heart glad.
Knowing You'll be back soon to take me away lightens my burdens and brightens my day. My heart is filled with Your glory, O God. It's a joy to walk with You having feet perfectly shod. You said that I'm now seated in a heavenly place. You said, Share the Gospel with all human race. It's a joy to tell others you died for them and to share with sinners that only You forgive sin.
So, today, I submit my work unto you. Just guide the way and I'll make it through. Others will be treated like I'd like them to treat me. My light will be shining and only Your face they'll see. When I close my eyes tonight to sleep, I'll dream about You and my dreams will be sweet. When I awake in the morning I'll imagine Your arms, I'll have perfect peace and feel no alarm.
I love You, Jesus, forever,
