god’s love notes

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 presetI haven’t blogged in a year but this post really inspired me. At first, I was going to add it on to my special commitments for Lent, but then I realised – why not just make it a permanent feature of not just my wall, but my life.

The idea is beautiful: If someone were to leave you a trail of sticky notes to find throughout the day, wouldn’t you be delighted and grateful for each one you found? I would probably be posting each one on instagram or facebook to share the joy that it brought me. And the truth is, it’s the same with God. He leaves us little notes throughout each day to tell us He loves us and to remind us that He’s thinking of us – through our conversations, a sudden breath of wind, or a passing moment of peace. But most of the time, we don’t notice or give much thought to the love notes He leaves for us to find – let alone celebrate them as they deserve to be celebrated!

I hope that by the end of this semester, this wall will be filled and that this Lent (and beyond), my eyes will be opened to the love that God wants to shower me with each day. :-)

And if you’d like to join me – send me pictures of your own love note walls or journals or whatever mode of documentation you decide on!!

love,
denise

Warning: This post may be slightly incoherent.

The last week has been an amazing, abundant waterfall of blessings and miracles, both big and small. Yesterday, I was writing out all my blessings from the last 2 weeks to put into my blessings jar… And for that matter, even having blessings to write down is a blessing in itself. (Woah, blessception?)

But anyway, I feel so affirmed in the decision I have made in my service to the Lord. I don’t think I ever really surrendered everything to Him, because oh my stars is the feeling amazing or what?! It’s the complete opposite of what I thought it would be, scary and full of insecurities and I’m-not-sures. Instead, I feel overwhelming peace. All my fear has been washed away, and I know that I don’t ever have to be scared or insecure.

I am fearless, because I have faith in Him alone. When I surrendered everything, every day something happens that just shows me how much He is promising to take care of me. Words cannot describe the immense outpouring of blessings that I have received simply by opening up my heart to Him and letting Him in completely.

I guess that I’m writing this post because I really want to remember this moment in my life, where I feel God’s presence so strongly in EVERYTHING. Like for srs man. It’s. Amazing. asdhoa;dsfhdl;ksafhd;slkhfo0iewt.
