Family + Faith + Encouragement
I shared on January 1st the word for my new year.
In order to be the light I must be transparent. Social media and the internet love to show you perfect lives but sometimes we glorify imperfection to a degree that makes our lack of effort okay. In order to produce fruit and harvest what God is trying to give we must be the light and put the effort in. This is my prayer today.
Pray with me.
Help me Lord to see your Son in every situation. Help me Lord to lift the veil daily to see Him standing at my right side, arms open and out, ready to guide and help. Help me Lord to be a light for the rest of my life, let's start with today. Use my broken, tired, weak vessel, make it beautiful, lively, and strong to serve. Let the words and love that pour out of me be with such gracious abundance that it falls on others. All from You. I don't want to simply splash Your love on others. I want to help drench them. Help me to start with my closest family and friends. They are closest to me, given to me, so let Your love pour out on them first. Let me, Lord, shine for you. Help me be a guiding light straight back to You in this dark world. Increase my wisdom to know how to lead and direct others to Your written Word. Help me to be bold when I tell others to pray, even if it's not what they want to hear as a solution for their problems. Let my conviction of the goodness of prayer and the relationship it brings with Your mighty power be more evident than ever. I give my all, my everything, to You. I am not short of struggles and pain. Set me up right daily as I come to You. Pour in me the light. Give me a peacefulness that only comes from you so that others may find peace and rest when near me. Let them experience You through the light. I realize that in all my asking for help that it is a direct reflection of my weakness. I realize that my weakness, my cracks, is where You shine through to others. Help me to seek You in all. I come to You in all I do through Your Son Jesus.
Yes, Lord, let it be done.
Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you. Show me the way I should go, for to you I lift up my soul.
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power than is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.
