Take a rest and remember this

Take a rest from the fight
Don’t try to figure it out
Just listen to what I’m whispering to your heart
‘Cause I know this is not
Anything like you thought
The story of your life was gonna be
And it feels like the end has started closing in on you
But it’s just not true
There’s so much of the story that’s still yet to unfold

And this is going to be a glorious unfolding
Just you wait and see and you will be amazed
You’ve just got to believe the story is so far from over
So hold on to every promise God has made to us
And watch this glorious unfolding

Glorious Unfolding by Steven Curtis Chapman

Prayer, May I….

Father,

May I wake every morning with a passion and a hunger to do your will.

May my heart be so full of gratitude for what you have done for me, and full of love for you as my Father, savior, friend,… my God, that your will is what I constantly seek.

May I never be satisfied with anything less than everything that you have call me to be and do.

While often those in the world boldly proclaim daily their love for drugs, sex, money, and/or people who are less than you have created them to be, may I never shrink from boldly proclaiming every day of my life my love for You through my words and deeds.

May I love others as you have loved me and may my love for them cause me to proclaim truth as you lead me to.

May I go to bed each night satisfied with how I have lived each day.

May I never take for granted that you gave all for me and may I live in light of it!

I pray this in the mighty names of Jesus!!

Amen!
