Fear is a liar

     Never allow fear to keep you from stepping out into all that God has for you. For fear is not given to you from God, but from the author of fear, the one who wants to keep you  from God’s best for you (Satan).  That fear is usually a sign that you are on the right track. So stay on it, keep going. 

     For as Henry Ford once said;

One of the greatest discoveries a man makes,

one of his great surprises,

is to find he can do what he was afraid he couldn’t do.

     And the next time you are faced with a fear that is stopping you from stepping out into all that God has for you to be, bring it to God in prayer, then remember Henry (he didn’t turn out so bad),  allow Philippians 4:13 to settle your spirit and do it afraid.

     Trust God’s leading, He will not let you down.

 

Even when we don’t understand

Prayer.jpg

I heard a song that told me that God is perfect, ALWAYS. I must have heard that song 100 times, but that particular part of it, reminding me of who God is in relation to his love for me never felt so close to my heart as it did then.

Meditating on his love for me brought forth this prayer. If you are struggling in this area (of not feeling perfectly loved by God) I humbly offer it as a template to draw you closer to the one who LOVES YOU deeply and perfectly.

*************

Father God, you are such a good father. Thank you for loving me so well. I worship you and love you, Father God, for who you really are.

Thank you for allowing me to even know you. You are perfect in all of your ways, even the ways that I do not understand.

Forgive me for thinking you were not just to me. That I was overlooked or uncared for or just not loved as much as ____ was. For you are perfect in all of your ways and you have perfectly loved me all of my life.
Help me to stop looking around and comparing myself to others in terms of who you show love to more. For you are perfect in all of your ways and show no favoritism. You HAVE loved me just as much as you love ____.
Help me to always know the deepness, richness, and awesomeness of your love for me.
From this day forward I am choosing to let go of all the lies the enemy has told me about who you are and to cling to the truth.

That you are perfect in ALL of YOUR WAYS and that this includes perfectly loving me.
Thank you God for loving me so well. Help me to never forget the depth and perfection of your love for me.
In Jesus name, I pray.

Amen

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!
