God find me faithful. May I be like Job, someone who suffers well. May I be found as a woman after your heart like David was said to be. May I have the courage to walk by faith like Abraham did. Grant me wisdom as you did Solomon. Give me courage to keep going like Moses. Give me peace, honor and favor as you did Joseph. Let me pray day and night like Daniel. Give me a vision and the strength to carry it out as you did for Nehemiah. Use my lips to speak truth as you did Elijah and the prophets. Give me compassion as Lydia showed Paul. Give me grace and perseverance as you did Paul. Give me courage and favor as you did Esther. Open doors for me to speak to the rich and the poor. Jesus give me your love for the world. Holy Spirit counsel me and comfort me when I’m weak and weary.
I live because of Christ. Without him I am nothing. He forgave me! One day I’ll see him in heaven, but I want everyone to know he died for their sins too. They can receive him in their lives. Confess your sins. Repent and ask him to come into your life. He rose again on third day so we could be with him one day. The men and women I mentioned above didn’t have easy lives but they chose to live for Jesus! Life gets hard, but Jesus won’t leave. He says, “Come to me all who are weary and heavy burdened and I will give you rest (Matthew 11:28).”
The last month has been hard! Full of unexpected challenges and often times answers were no where in sight. Fear became something I encountered often. After battling fear throughout different circumstances in my life, I came to the conclusion the other day that need God to kill the fear inside of me that holds me back from experiencing abundant life. In order for this to happen fear must die and God must love me back to life. I believe he cares and is full of joy to hear this prayer. I encourage you to ask him to take your fear. He already went to the cross to deal with all sin! I don’t want to live afraid rather I want to live courageous. Lord give us the strength and boldness to live for you!
The loss of a child, the loss of a friend, the loss of a job will tragedy end? I can’t say I understand all the trials and pain, but my heart breaks for those treading through rocky terrain. It’s hard and it’s tiring will the trek ever end? It is hard to take another step and even bend. I hear people say when can I rest? I’ve given life my all, my very best. I wish I could say tomorrow the tide will turn and you will look back and see all you’ve learned. I don’t know when that time will come, but I encourage you to keep walking you are worthy not dumb. You may feel like the world is crumbling under your feet. Remember how much you’ve gone through, living life is quite a feat. I’ve experienced many trials and chosen to believe that there’s treasures that have been deposited in me. Life isn’t easy but I’ve learned much indeed. I pray that these words comfort others in need!
Voices are used to sing and shout. Voices are used to create and cast out doubt. Voices are instruments of praise and adoration. Voices are used to make declarations. How you use your voice is up to you. I want to change the world and speak life, too! There’s so many hurting. I hate when people die because of cancer and suicide. God I want to glorify you not disease, speak through my mouth and heal disease. May the church arise and miracles happen where people around the world get a taste of heaven. I pray we are united as one and honor the Father, Holy Spirit and Son!
