Thank You

Thank you heavenly father for making me stronger and for the people who you’ve led to pray for me. I have wants but you know what I need. Your eyes are on the sparrow so why not on me. I know with all my heart that you care, I just react like a small child when I don’t get what I want . You are for me so I’m not aftaid. Thank you for watching over my kods and I and for being faithful to supply our needs. Thank you for leading me and teaching me about the healthy way to be. Amen. I feel safe Lord under the shelter of your heavenly wings. You are for me, not against me

Peace Out Of This World

Lord, you are the true source of my peace. I get caught up in cares of this life just as any person, however you give me grace and you say to me by your spirit that everything will be ok. I may not be where I want to be, but who I am trying to improve for anyways? Those you have called you justify, those you justify you also glorify. If you tell me something is ok, then I believe that it is ok. I am learning so much about trusting you. If it were not for your perfect love, none of us would have hope. If not for your loving grace none of us would overcome or succeed. Thank you for caring people father and for good friends. Thank you for always being with me so that I do not feel alone. Thank you for the children that you have given me. Thank you for choosing me and anointing me so that I have the blessing of sharing your word. Please use me more, please help me love you more. Please simplify my life, weed out what is not of you, help me be patient and have compassion. Help me fulfill my purpose in this life and with every person who you have given me stewardship over. Help me love you more, I feel to keep saying this. I want you to be always on the forefront of my mind. Lord, I love you. Thank you for your grace and for teaching me that I am not able to accomplish anything in my own strength. Please keep teaching me what it means to wait on you. Please give me bread to eat, lead me on paths of righteousness, show me your plans for me I know that you prepare a table before me in the presence of friend and foe. Thank you so much for loving me. Amen.

True Love

The right kind of love to receive is acceptance and understanding. Patience and consideration. It is a celebration of who you are and what you are about. It is respect. It is a desire for your happiness.

Do we extend this love ourselves? Receiving true love should start with loving ourselves. I struggle to accept my humaness yet God does. Am I better than my Savior? If God cares about something he will correct it. If God is for me then why am I against me? We cannot truly love or forgive others if we cannot extend this to ourselves. Thank you Lord for teaching me about true love.

Simplify

When I say simplify I mean to stop worrying about the things I cannot control. I want, I wish, I strive, I get frustrated. When we have God, then why would we fear? Often im afraid because I don’t have all the answers. I don’t have to have all the answers, I need to simplify. What is important right now? What has God provided right now? What is my need right now? Sometimes my problem is a lack of forgiving myself. I let go because I know you are in control. I am not. I have to wait on you.. hmm now im getting what this means. It means slow down, simplify, trust God , trust that whatever direction I take God is directing my steps.

Fretting

I feel sad, I feel afraid. I feel rejected, i feel insecure. I have had imaginations all day of fearful things. I’m also reminded of past hurts. I do not trust and I have reasons for this . This is an old record in my collection of old records that has selected itself and jumped up on the record player. Lord deliver me from this battle that has waged war against me. I confess I cannot do this without you. I need you to do this battle for me. Ive picked up my sword in the past and I already am aware of how I will get entangled trying to overcome it in my own power. I need to be changed and I cannot do it myself. I need you Lord Jesus this time i lay my weapon down at your feet and im on my knees. Lord I need you. Come to my rescue my king. You are my shephard I shall not be in want. You know what I need. Amen you’ve already answered me my king and my deliverer you are mighty on your throne. I praise you for your love is matchless and always enduring. You are sweet. I am new. You have made me new. Hallelujah Satan you are defeated.

Newness

Im tired of the old way of being and thinking . Im just tired of it. Im agitated with myself. Im agitated with the ways I feel. When we feel feelings that defeat us, it is not God. The flesh needs to be reminded that it is dead. We cannot do this without God’s help. When we get saved then we already have what we need, which is the presence of the holy spirit. Abide in him, dwell where he dwells. Believe what he says. Hate the flesh unto death. Sometimes we won’t allow the flesh to die when we buy into the lies that what it desires is we actually want and need. The thing about the flesh is that it has an insatiable appetite. Only Jesus gives us water that quenches our thirst once and for all. Lord I ask for what you have to give. I do not want what my flesh wants aside from your provision. I only need your provisions. Lord please I need more grace and more truth im ready to be new and whole. And they all said “not my will but thy will be done” please grant me peace and let me dwell there forever. God you are so perfect. I trust your plan.

For The Good

We may not always understand life’s lessons. Sometimes what God allows us to go through makes no sense to our natural understanding. But as we trust that his ways are perfect and that we are in the center of his will no matter what our life circumstances then it can be easier for us to just seek righteousness no matter what. When we have passed the test of life we will receive our reward. When we submit to God through life’s trials it serves as a boot camp in which we receive hard core training to succeed in the oncoming stage that is unforseen.
