The Best Present

Today is my birthday! I love, love, LOVE my birthday! And today has been so amazing...let me tell you why.

I realized recently and had it cemented in my head at the youth retreat this weekend that it is not your job, as my friend, to fill me up. Only God can do that.

When I let go of my expectations and just depend on God to fill my need for love, I'm so open to the love from others. The love I get is icing on the cake. I don't need it, but it adds sweetness to my life. My relationships will be healthier.

I sat down this morning with God. He showed me love through His Word. And now instead of being stressed about who will remember my birthday and who will text me and who will fill my tank...I'm just happy.

That's the best present I've gotten!
