How often do we say, “I love You” to the Lord? We know we love Him. We know He loves us. But how often do we say it with full and grateful hearts? As we’re absorbing His creation . . . do we take a moment to snap a mental picture and remember to let Him know how much we love Him? . . .

God pursues. He listens. He understands. He reassures us. He keeps His promises. He provides. He gives good gifts. If any human being were to do this much for us, we’d most certainly let that person know.

So why not say “thank You” to the One who breathed us into existence?

You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength.  Deuteronomy 6:5


I will love You, O Lord, my strength.

The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer;

My God, my strength, in whom I will trust.

Psalm 18:1–2


I will extol You, my God, O King;

And I will bless Your name forever and ever.

Every day I will bless You,

And I will praise Your name forever and ever.

Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised;

And His greatness is unsearchable.

Psalm 145:1–3
