If you’ve found this page, more than likely we’re either already acquainted with one another or you’ve heard about Love you. Love, God. I thought it might be good to share a little bit about myself for those of you I’ve yet to meet.
Hello! I’m Amy and this is what I look like. Okay, let’s be honest…I don’t always wear a plastic fireman’s hat but it’s a funny picture! I have an amazing husband and beautiful teenage daughter, two dogs, two cats and hopefully one day, a whole heard of cows…but that’s another story!
You’re probably wondering where Love you. Love, God came from, or even what it means.
It started about four years ago on a beach in Mexico. It was then that God started talking to me. Not audibly, but it was loud enough in my head that I had to take notes.
My husband gave me a confused look and asked, “What are you doing?”
I yelled while running to our room to get a pen and notebook, “God’s talking to me and I need to write this down!”
For at least an hour, I sat there and wrote, oblivious to everything going on around me. It was that moment that the concept was born, but not perfected — it’ll never be perfected. Always changing, always improving, just how God wants US to be.
The most important thing I wrote down, taking up one single page was this:
I didn’t really know what it meant at the time, but God was working on something that He’d later explain.
For the next couple years, I wrote religiously. Every week day I would log on to Facebook and post inspirational messages. Now you should know, I can’t take credit for any of the words I write. Before I put pen to paper (or fingertips to keyboard), I say a prayer. It sounds something like this:
“God, please give me the words that someone needs to hear this morning.”
There are times when it only starts with a word, other times a phrase or scripture and many times, prayer isn’t even needed. There’s a topic that God puts on my heart and I just start writing. Writing is what I do. It’s how I express myself. During difficult times, writing is the only way I can fully understand, myself, how I feel or convey to others what I’m going through. Verbalizing isn’t the easiest for me. On a good day, I can give decent advice. On a typical day, I am able to write down what I’m thinking to then read it later on. But this writing was different. It wasn’t for me. It felt as if the words were intentionally put on my heart for someone else — most of the time, I never knew who it was for.
Here’s the cool part…
One day those four words from years before popped into my head only they appeared a little differently this time.
It was starting to make sense now. Those words, written so intentionally, were for someone specific from God. And what might you guess was the reason behind it all? To say to whomever it was, that He loved them…signed with His signature. If I go back to all those postings and end them with Love you. Love, God it brings about the very reason those four words, and all the ones thereafter, were placed on my heart.
God knows what others need to hear – always. Trust that what you see on this site is something that God has given me to share. I’m simply the vessel He’s used to serve those who need to hear His voice. The writing may be on countless topics but one thing will always remain a constant – God is at the center of it all. Even if you don’t see a scripture or hear me mention His name, know that He is thought of with my every post. He is behind every word. Without Him, I wouldn’t be here today to share with you.
I wish you many, many blessings – today, and always!
P.S. Thank you for understanding that this website layout is most definitely a work in progress!
