Humble confidence

Isn’t it interesting that God wisely designed the human body so that we can neither pat our own back, nor kick ourselves, too easily?

Lord, help us be humble as we successfully rule this day, confident in the knowledge that You can open doors for us that no man can shut. And if a door shuts or will not open, let us not be too hard on ourselves understanding that Your ways are not our ways but all things work for the good of those who love You.

Making it through the week

Well folks, we’ve made it halfway through another week. Faith and prayer are a couple of ways I put the pedal-to-the-metal and get through unforeseen difficulties.

Thank you Lord, for helping us overcome the obstacles thrown in front of us thus far. As we move on toward the weekend I ask that you be with each of us and allow us to see through and past any treacherous impediments your enemy places in our way. Please comfort those who need comfort. Heal those who need healing. Guide all of us to a closer walk with you.

Wait on the Lord

But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
Isaiah 40:31 KJV
Note to self: “Wait” is the key word in this scripture. Be still, don’t get in too big of a hurry. Listen, rest, refresh, renew. Then plow forward. If you fail to wait upon the Lord you may take the wrong path, forfeit His help and miss out on divine endurance.

Peace Out 2020

Peace out 2020

It’s time for you to end

You have forever changed us

Can’t say you were my friend

But you did prod me

To think differently

And change my approach to life

Will your impact be

For good or bad

It’s hard to say

Time will tell

As it always does

In it’s own special way

One thing is certain

Without any doubt

Ten years from now

When we look back

2020 will mark a definite line

In the history of time

And how the future unwinds

Ready me for daily battle

Lord

Forgive me of my sins

Forgive me my need

To ask you again and again

Help me be a good warrior

Hearing You

Following Your Word

This world gets so loud

Sometimes I allow it

To drown You out

Forgive me

Help me go where You say go

Help me stay when You say

Be still

Help me daily put on the armor

You have provided for me

And not forget a single piece

Help me skillfully wield

The sword of the Spirit

Give me eyes that see

Ears that hear

Divine knowledge

Understanding

Wisdom

Teach me Your ways

Let me not depart from them

May all those reading these words

Be hugged by You

Soften their hearts

Touch them in a real

And wonderful way

That they may know

You are the King of kings

Lord of lords

According to Your will

Amen
