to my best friend


Jesus, please fill me with your love this year. Help me to be on fire for you. Help me to live for you, and for others -- not for myself.


I'm really small compared to you. You're strong enough to fill me with your love, while I'm not. I'm nothing without you. Jesus, I want you to take over my life this year, and for the rest of my life.


Fill me with you this year. Pick me up when I'm weak, break me down when I'm filled with pride. Fill me with your love this year. I know I'm only taking about this year right now and that's because my mind can't think about all the years to come. I have to focus on the moment. So please, walk with me through this year.


Jesus, you'll always stay by my side. You'll always be there for me, you'll always try to help me keep going. I really don't understand that and I don't think I ever will. But that's okay, because it doesn't change anything.


You're beautiful, Jesus. You make everything glorious. I love you for that, and you love me too, but not because I loved you first. I didn't even care about you at first. But you still loved me. You're beautiful, Jesus. Satisfy me this year as I strive to walk with you.

"You're more than all this world can give. You're beautiful, Your love is all I need to live. You're beautiful, You're more than all this world can give. Satisfy me Lord, I'm begging You, help me to see, You'll all I want, You'll all I need. Satisfy me, Lord." TENTH AVENUE NORTH - Satisfy

  3. I would say the same. Especially about focusing on the moment. Someone once said that life was made up of minutes. How wonderful it would be, to give each minute - to God.
