As I walk through this day, help me live for You. Let me live my life in remembrance of You. Give me strength to be a witness of who You are. Give me strength to make the right decisions. To choose You over myself. To live for You with abandon. To forget all else but You and Your ways.
To love You with all my heart, mind, soul and… strength.
Thank You for being born so that we might live a life freed from sin through You. Thank You for being the wonderful God that You are- always looking out for us, always being THE definition of love. You never leave us. You never forsake us. You always forgive and even forget. You love us beyond what we deserve! Thank You Jesus for Your miracle birth. Oh the wonderful mystery that are Your ways! Thank You God for loving me. Thank You Jesus that in my worst moments as a human being, when I fail the most at being Your light- You. Still. Love. Me.
Thank You that You rejoice with me in my good moments. Thank You that you weep with me in my moments of pain. At the worst times of my life You have held me when there was no one around to do so. When I was all alone, You walked with me and carried me. Lord, I love You so!
Jesus, help me to get past the tunnel vision of my life and my immediate surroundings, but give me You heart for the things that come up in my life. Help me to see the impacts of my decisions in the spiritual realm. Help me to see that Your plan, Your destiny for me, and my identity in You are greater than one moment of temptation or one moment of uncensored emotion. Help me submit my thoughts to you not because I know I should but because Your thoughts are truly greater. Help me submit from a place of true love and desire for Your heart, not from a place of obligation. Help me not lose sight of the fact that my vision is so narrow, and that You see my whole life and heart, and You know best, and that’s the life I want to live. You are greater, stronger, higher, and more worthy than I could ever be. Help me live for You. I love You Jesus, with all that I am and all that I have.
I need Your help. I need Your grace to see me through this time. So much is swimming in my head and all part of me wants to do is hide away. Run away from everything. To not face a thing and just get away. Save me from my fears. Save me from my own lusts and desires. Save me from all my own hopes and dreams and just give me Yours. Give me what You want for me. Give me Your desires for my heart. Give me Your life that You would have for me, not what I want. Help me God to walk through this storm with a grace that has never been there before. Help me to walk through this storm as a living testimony- worthy of the trust You have put in me being allowed to go through this storm.
I keep praying over and over again- Nevertheless Lord, let Thy Will and not my will be done…
I so desperately want Him to say “Yes my child, Yes, this is for you…” but I know that it needs to be what He wants for me, and not just what >>I want
Sometimes… the hardest part is the waiting.
This was a facebook post of mine a year ago. It was used against me at the time and yet God allowed it to be used against me for my own good. So I say this prayer yet once again this year with more conviction. Not my will Lord, but Thy Will!!!! Call me, guide me, lead me, walk beside me Lord!!!
I have found that people will use what they want to destroy others but IF they succeed in any capacity, it is because YOU want to create a mosaic from the remnant pieces. You know that the pieces left will be so much more beautiful AFTER it is broken. The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, you will not despise (Psalm 51:17). I know You have molded me to be more of who You want me to be through this past year and I know You will continue to do so. You mended the broken pieces of my life together with Your love to the point that people don’t see the broken pieces but Your work. So whatever You want to do with it Lord- I trust my life in Your hands.
Guide my hands as I work on my patients today. Help my mind as I seek to find what is wrong with them, if any. Give me wisdom, knowledge, and insight as I examine them. May I not miss anything. Protect me from mistakes oh Lord for I am only human and do not know everything. May I treat my patients in all excellence and may they know it is You.
the cry of my heart today has been for You to consume me from the inside out. I want You to overflow in my life. I want to be Your light in this dark world. I want to serve You faithfully in my day as Rebekah did for her father. As the distractions of this world flood into my life and as the cares of my day try to over take me, help me keep my eyes on You. Oh how I love to wake up reading Your Word! How much I adore You my Jesus! Live in my heart all my days. May I embrace Your Word, the things You try to teach me in it, and Your ways. I seek to have You consume all of me so that You can shine through me and my life. God, I look to be Yours completely. Take control Lord. Lead me and guide me on this narrow, crooked path in life. This way isn’t easy but anything that is worth it never is.
Let every beat of my heart beat for You Jesus.
I adore You Jesus with all my heart, mind, soul, and strength.
Thank You for showing such an abundance of your love today, and for blessing us with friends old and new. Thank You for blessing us with the chance to provide a meal and a gathering place for so many people, and thank You for blessing us with the chance to do a friend in need a favor. Your love is so apparent in our lives, God, and it’s never-ending. Thank You so much. Jesus, I pray this week that you will show me a deeper understanding of Your love for me and for this world. I pray for wisdom and discernment as I explore this part of my walk with You and press further in to Your “love doctrine” and how to live it. You’ve put 1 Corinthians 13 on my heart, and I trust You that it’s for a reason. Help me to bring my walk into further submission to this passage. Bless me with strength as I fast, and revelation as I pray. I trust You with my life, Lord, and lay it in Your hands to guide where You will. I love You, Lord, with all that I am and all that I have.
Break forth into joy, sing together, ye waste places of Jerusalem: for the Lord hath comforted his people, he hath redeemed Jerusalem. ~Isaiah 52:9
I praise You and I worship You for turning my life which was like a barren wasteland after my past relationship and You comforted me and redeemed me. There is none like You. Without You, my life would be in shambles, but with You I have hope and joy and a bright and wonderful future. I am SO thankful that more than ever, I embrace the wonderful future that You are preparing for me. I cannot wait to meet Isaac. I cannot wait to meet the man You have for me that will be a wellspring to those around him. I cannot wait to meet the man who loves and trusts You so much he’s willing to lay down on an alter and let his Father potentially kill him. Though You slay him, yet will he trust You. That’s the man I’m looking for. That’s the man who can lead me. Help me recognize him when he enters my life, if he hasn’t already. I thank You that You redeemed me from my past. I thank You that my sins are washed away and I am made new by Your blood. I thank You that in Your arms, I found comfort when no one else could provide what I needed. You are such a good God! I love You Jesus with all my heart, soul, mind, and strength.
“We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.” ~ 2 Corinthians 10:5
Jesus, I thank You for who You are. Your love for me shows up in so many little ways. I thank You for keeping us safe today, and I thank You that I always have Your full attention. I thank You for listening, Jesus, whether I’m praying for myself or for others. I thank you that you always know how to work it out perfectly, and things come together in ways that I could never have even imagined. I thank You for all the little things You do and signs You give that show me Your hand is in my life.
I give you my heart, spirit, and life today, God. I thank You that You’ll show me the path You want for me in perfect timing. I thank You for showing me what You’ve been showing me lately, and for what You’ve been doing in my heart. I pray that You would help me this week to guard my thoughts and bring them all captive under Jesus Christ. Grant me discernment over the thoughts that are not of You, and if a thought comes in my head that is not of You, help me notice it, and capture it, and submit it immediately. Help me to become so Kingdom-minded that my every thought is unto You. Help me bring every thought into obedience to You. I submit my activities, my endeavors, and my projects, Lord, that my every act would be unto You and You alone. I declare myself Your willing servant God, to be used however You need me.
I love You, Jesus.
