Dear Friend

Dearest Friend, 

He knows your rise and your fall. It may seem the catastrophes and dilemmas greatly outnumber the triumphs and good days. Don't let it sway your heart, or mind, into believing that you aren't made for a greater purpose than to be swept about in life's insane current. You are the only one who can do what you were made to do. In at least one aspect you are different and special. 
You may not know it but there is no one like you anywhere. Sure someone is probably similar to you in a few ways, but you are the only YOU. Made just how He intended, you need no embellishments.

Make the most of everyday, don't forget to say "I love you" to your loved ones, and thank God for your life. And your life is more than being alive, my friend. It is every aspect of your day to day basis, from waking up in the morning, breathing through the day, being able to take care of yourself, to being sane... Knowing truth from fiction... having food, raiment, a will and desire to do things. The ability to love, laugh, and praise. To speak, write, and read. 

Do we give God the credit for these things or our selves? We ought to give Him the praise He deserves, the time of day to pick up our Bibles and read them. I don't mean do naught but read the Word and praise all day long, though sometimes it is good to meditate and linger in His word, but we should all have time for the one who breathes the breath of life into us constantly. 

Remember these things, dear heart: Appreciate. Listen, not just hear. Talk. Realize. Observe. Ask. Knock. Seek. Uplift. Sympathize. Reminisce. Pray. CARE. Let Him Shine through you. Be Patient. Feel. Smile. Laugh. Cry. Think. Learn. Help others learn. Be more. Desire good things and be good.
 Seek peace and ensue it. He knows all things. 
The eyes of the Lord are in EVERY place, beholding the evil and the good. Proverbs 15:3
