I love that I love each of you.
I also love that as I love you, I get a chance to learn who you really are. You send me emails and thank yous and little stories of the giant hurdles you’ve made in life. And yes, even though you call them small, God and I know they’re giant.
You all are great. You make me smile. You make me shed tears. You make me pray. And while I can’t always respond to every email via the computer I always try to respond with God. I ask him for the best for you, for your situations and for your heart. I ask him to show his lavish love in your life.
You are amazing. You gift me a lot more than I gift you. Daily, so many of you give to my heart. Quietly, I know others inwardly offer up thanks. Readily, I know there are prayers going out for the wider community of gals who read these words.
To know we are fighting together, battling through our hang-ups, and sticking to the King of Kings on this road is beyond helpful to my heart.
We rage on – in love.
I once thought this blog was about me “getting my healing.” Now I know it is about all of us “becoming healed” and supporting each other along the way. Thank you for helping me realize I need you just as much as I need God.
You are often a vessel for His voice. A voice of encouragement that pops up via email at just the right time. A prayer note that I needed. A living testimony of what you are reading.
All glory to God! He is working right here. We read and write only holy ground, together. And I love it! I cherish it. I rejoice in the fullness of what He has prepared for such a time as this.
While social media rages with hate, anger and dissension, we pull together in love. We smile and keep on with Jesus. We do our part to do our best to change our little slice of the world one small act of love at a time.
I am grateful for you. I want you all to know that. God has given me so much in this community of lovers. I praise Him for you today.
My prayer for you: Sweet Jesus, thank you for the reader of this post today. Thank you that you see her heart. Thank you that she pursues, loves and follows you. I ask you to open every door unto her, so that she can meet and know you with immense passion. I ask that there would never be a question in her mind as to how much you love her. I ask that there would never be a question in her mind about how immensely loved she is. I ask for an increase of your heart on this very blog that reaches hearts day-in and day-out. I ask for your activating faith to pour out on every reader in profound ways in the coming days. I ask for your will to be done in all ways. We thank you Jesus. Amen.

What a beautiful encouragement, here Kelly. I agree with you that we are all in this together. Sometimes when I read comments of my blog readers, I think their comments could turn into posts/articles. So much encouragement and edification!
Blessings to your ministry, friend.
Thank you for this! I’m discovering God and Jesus even though I grew up going to church. So, it’s been an amazing journey and it’s like I can’t get enough and it’s such an amazing feeling to feel HIS love and presence. I look forward to your blog posts because I learn so much! Thank you again and I appreciate it so much! Many blessings to you and your family!
Community is such a glorious thing and we are blessed here. Truly!

Kelly, It is beautiful to be in life together with others. Thank you!
I read your Growing Love this morning. Not sure why but my eyes teared up to where It was hard to see to finish reading. I didn’t know I needed to hear those words but I so did. You are a breath of fresh air every time I read your devotionals.
I bet you get many emails about this one.
We love you toooooo!!!!!!!

I do hope that we as Christians are known by our love.
Beautiful prayer. Thank you!

Thanks for your sweet, kind words. I often feel somewhat sheltered from the harshness of social media because I spend so much time on Christian blogs like yours. Blessings to you!
