Tuesday Prayer 2/13/2017

God thank you for providing a life that I never thought I would have. Thank you for allowing things to come together in your time. Even if I don’t fully understand the plans you have over my life, I accept whatever path you want me to take

Sometimes I feel like giving up and throwing in the towel on my dreams. I know that you will always provide all of my needs, even if my wants are pushed the side. I pray that you continue to show me your grace and mercy during difficult times. If I ever feel my hope slipping, I pray that you pick me back up. Let me pursue excellence while also seeking the righteousness of heaven.

I want to serve you with a whole heart. Please see my soul and know that I am at least trying not to conform to this world. I want to see how much you value me through your eyes. I want to value others how you value them. Do not let my heart harden by the uncertainty of life.

Your kingdom comes, your will be done on earth how it is done in heaven.

In Jesus Name,

[Amen]

God is our refuge and strength,
a helper who is always found
in times of trouble.
Therefore we will not be afraid,
though the earth trembles
and the mountains topple
into the depths of the seas,
though its water roars and foams
and the mountains quake with its turmoil.Selah

Psalm 46:1-3

Peace [Fruit of the Spirit]

Trials and tribulations are inevitable. There will be bad days.

Yes, it is possible to have this fruit of the spirit. No matter your situation or thoughts, you can have peace.

Praying to God is what got me through some of my darkest hours. “This is what’s going on, I don’t know what’s going to happen. I pray that you take this pain away from me.”

This previous Sunday it was pouring down rain. I had enough faith to drive to church. Once I got in the parking lot, volunteers were waiting for people with umbrellas. They didn’t ask questions or judge the rain.  We all kept the umbrella until we safely got in the building.

No matter how bad it may seem, he wants to give you peace in your storm. Peace helps to develop your strength while you are waiting for the light to shine.

Please give God the authority over your mind and emotions. Our father can reassure us during imperfect times.

A peaceful mind will help you make the best decisions for your life to become whole. So please pray for this fruit.

Peacemakers who sow in peace reap a harvest of righteousness.

James 3:18

Tuesday Prayer 2/6/2018

Hi, thanks for reading this weeks prayer. I hope this tool will help you with your walk with Jesus.

God,

Thank you for always providing everything I need and protecting me. Thank you for your everlasting grace and mercy. You’re an amazing father, and I humbly serve you.

This week I’m asking you to continue to be the leader in my life. Continue to show your love and mercy in all the decisions I choose. Please bless me with the abundance of great fruits of the spirit.

I pray that my family is healthy. Let nothing stop the plans you have for our lives.

Let all things work for the favor of your vision. If there is anything that is not of you in my life, I pray for the wisdom to remove the hindrance.

Your kingdom come, your will be done on earth how it is done in heaven.

For his anger lasts only a moment,
but his favor, a lifetime.
Weeping may stay overnight,
but there is joy in the morning.

Psalm 30:5

Fruit of the Spirit: Love

Surprise! I’m kicking off a new series where I will talk about fruits of the spirit. I’m going to go over each one in my own special way.

The first one I will be talking about is love.

Every person in my life wants to experience this, including myself. As we grow older – our needs change, but the main foundation is love. I remember being a child trying my best to be as cute as I can for the attention of my family.

As I got older my ideas of what I had to do to receive love evolved. Honestly, it became exhausting. I never felt fully satisfied. I went through a phase where I just gave up until I realized these 2 important cliches.

  1. God is the only one that can give you real unconditional love. When someone says “I love you” it’s usually a “but…” at the end. There will always be a price to receive love from humans. Some people standards are low while others are high, but there has to be something given. God’s love is unconditional. There is nothing in this world you can give that God needs. Yet there is an everlasting abundance of acceptance and compassion that is given just for being you.
  2. You have to love yourself first. On the journey of finding out Jesus, I found my identity. The value I had for myself began to grow. All the potential God gave me began to show in the mirror and I was impressed. My standards grew and I no longer lowered myself to please other people. “This is how I deserve to be treated and I’m not here to impress you” became my new attitude. Being born again in Christ gave me a new outlook on myself which made me love myself in Christ. Surprisingly when you love who you are, it’s much easier to love others. It’s true what they say, how you treat other people is how you see yourself.

 

So there you have it. Love is what we all should live by to make this life worthwhile.

16 And we have come to know and to believe the love that God has for us.

God is love, and the one who remains in love remains in God, and God remains in him.

1 John 4:16

Blog Update : Schedule for Priorities

When I got back from the gym last night, I looked at my schedule.

“Oh my gosh –  I set myself up to burn out.”

Truth is, I want to meet someone worth having a marriage with. With small groups, working and other activities – I wouldn’t have time to give a potential partner.

So for a partner I don’t even have [yet], I sat down and organized my entire schedule.

And that is where you all come in.

Instead of going for a Monday / Wednesday / Friday schedule, I’m switching gears.

To free up my schedule it will be Tuesday / Thursday / and Saturday.

I’m still very passionate about my blog – so the content will still be great quality.

Thank you so much for understanding.

22 Wives, submit to your husbands as to the Lord, 23 because the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church. He is the Savior of the body. 24 Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives are to submit to their husbands in everything. 25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself for her Ephesians 5:22-25

Note to Self

You’re a little uncomfortable right now. You know the next chapter in your life is about to unfold. You feel like you want to cringe. You have anxiety about a life you’ve never experienced before.

You have come so far in your life. You accomplished so much. You stayed true to yourself and took risk even when everyone thought it was stupid or crazy.

Listen, and do as I say:

Keep jumping in the deep end. Don’t give up. Learn how to swim in unknown depths.

Trust in yourself — know you will be okay.

You have character and the power of God by your side. So don’t sweat something you haven’t even had yet. Remember you waited your whole life for this – so don’t back out.

Love Always

What then are we to say about these things? If God is for us, who is against us?

Romans 8:31

Wisdom and Compassion

When I was younger if I felt my ego was being threatened – I could figure out how to punch you with my words. Raw with no filter, some of my words have been unforgettable.

I’m not proud of some of the things I’ve said, it’s really no excuse. As I gotten older I grew wisdom and compassion for others.

“What is Wisdom and compassion? What does that have to do with telling it like it is?”

Knowledge is very powerful. I was blessed with the ability to pick up on people very quickly (ie strengths, weaknesses, etc.)

Over time I had to stop being selfish and taking everything so personal. I had to use my gifts to see the world through someone else’s eyes. Maybe they are having a bad day or sensitive about this topic.

Wisdom is using knowledge as tool to serve God’s purpose. And that’s where compassion comes in.

When Jesus died on the cross. He had compassion for all – even his enemy’s. He knew they were not fully aware of how wrong they were. Instead of using his power for evil – he sacrificed himself.

We must learn to love like Jesus. We all can stand up for ourselves while respecting and loving the enemy.

Conflict does not have to be nasty and spiteful. When I tell people what I will not accept in an assertive loving manner – a peace comes over me.

In conclusion: Do everything with love.

Discretion will watch over you,
and understanding will guard you.

Proverbs 2:11
