Joey Joey Joey! (Nice photo kan. Don’t kill me.)
I’m your second biggest fan! Your Biggest fan is God la of course. And as a fan, I really have so much I love about you.
(Warning: Take a deep breath)
I love watching you (creepy kan). I love listening to your talking voice. I love your singing. I love your advice. I love your love for everyone. Especially your compassion for the emotionally and physically needy. I love that you love to share. I love your confidence when there is a problem that needs to be fixed. I love (and also don’t love) your perfectionism. I love your hugs and support. I love to see you cry because it speaks of your attitude towards God and His people. I love finding comfort in holding your hands. I love to hear your laugh. And I love your lame jokes. I love that you’re so smart (you’ve taught me a lot of common and uncommon sense) (where do you keep all these information?). I love all your talents. I love it when you pray. You are so connected to God. I love when you get messages from God. That’s really a special connection you have. I love that you don’t reject me when you know my weaknesses, but rebuke and teach me and also follow up on my progress (you do get angry sometimes, which is also good). I love that you try to change yourself when others (or I) rebuke you. I love that you get excited for the right things. And best of all. I love that you love me.
This journey has not been easy for me and I think it’s been even harder for you. But I know for sure God’s hand is on you. And on me. And I do believe He’ll be the one to hold us together. And we’ll have the happiest ending in Heaven with Jesus for eternity (that’s a long time)!
Joey, please continue to love the Lord. No matter what. Because I will fail you. And you will fail yourself. But God won’t fail ever. Your obedience is all He asks for. Be obedient to God. Not to me. Not to yourself. Only to God. Whatever you do, bring Glory to Him.
I think God is so proud of you now actually. But you can still do more. You can still be more. As long as we learn to have less of us and more of Him. As long as we walk in His path. Then we’ll surely see Spiritual Growth and Perfection.
Lord take Joey again in your arms. Wrap her in Your love. Flood her with Your grace. Fill her with Your Spirit. Drench her in Your beauty and glory. May she always have great Christ-like Character; love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness, faithfulness, and self-control. And Lord input on her great Christ-like Attitude; being kindly affectionate, delighting in honouring others, not lagging in diligence, fervent in spirit, always serving the Lord, joyful in hope, patient in affliction, and faithful in prayer.
Thank You Lord for birthing this wonderfully made creature and sharing her with the world.
And all those who love Joey say…
