“Someone once said tongue-in-cheek, “Why pray when you can worry?” The point is clear: Worry gets us nowhere, but prayer gets us in touch with The One who can handle all of our concerns.”

~Jennifer Benson Schuldt~

 

“When you feel the tension mounting,

And across the busy day,

Only gloomy clouds are drifting

As you start to worry-pray!”

~Anon.~

 

“It’s impossible to wring our hands when they are folded before God in prayer.”

Thank You!

 

Amen.

“Holy Spirit, help us hear

Your inner promptings, soft and clear;

And help is know Your still, small voice

So we may make God’s will our choice.”

Heavenly Father,

 

I ask only to hear the promptings of Holy Spirit more and more as I travel this path.

“Although I may not understand

The path You’ve laid for me,

Complete surrender to Your will-

Lord, this my prayer shall be.”

“We become who God meant us to be by giving ourselves completely  to Him.”

~Author Unknown~

 

 

Heavenly Father,

 

Here I am, all of me. I give up not just my life, but my dreams to fulfill Your purpose for my life.

And I have learned in so surrendering, You reveal to me that some of my dreams and Your purpose are one and the same.

Thank You!

 

Amen.

Confessing Christ Jesus as Savior,

Believing in God’s only Son.”

“True religion is not a garment to be taken on and off. It is a lofty challenge about how we live before a holy God and others.”

~Bill Crowder~

 

“True religion is to know

The love that Christ imparts;

True religion is to show

His love to burdened hearts.”

~D. De Haan~

 

“You don’t advertise your religion by wearing a label-you do it by living a life.”

Joel 2:18-27

18 Then the Lord will be zealous for His land,
And pity His people.
19 The Lord will answer and say to His people,
“Behold, I will send you grain and new wine and oil,
And you will be satisfied by them;
I will no longer make you a reproach among the nations.

20 “But I will remove far from you the northern army,
And will drive him away into a barren and desolate land,
With his face toward the eastern sea
And his back toward the western sea;
His stench will come up,
And his foul odor will rise,
Because he has done monstrous things.”

21 Fear not, O land;
Be glad and rejoice,
For the Lord has done marvelous things!
22 Do not be afraid, you beasts of the field;
For the open pastures are springing up,
And the tree bears its fruit;
The fig tree and the vine yield their strength.
23 Be glad then, you children of Zion,
And rejoice in the Lord your God;
For He has given you the former rain faithfully,
And He will cause the rain to come down for you—
The former rain,
And the latter rain in the first month.
24 The threshing floors shall be full of wheat,
And the vats shall overflow with new wine and oil.

25 “So I will restore to you the years that the swarming locust has eaten,
The crawling locust,
The consuming locust,
And the chewing locust,
My great army which I sent among you.
26 You shall eat in plenty and be satisfied,
And praise the name of the Lord your God,
Who has dealt wondrously with you;
And My people shall never be put to shame.
27 Then you shall know that I am in the midst of Israel:
am the Lord your God
And there is no other.
My people shall never be put to shame.

 

 

“Sin ravages a fruitful life

When it is not addressed;

But God restores and makes us right

Once sin has been confessed.”

~Sper~

 

“God doesn’t remove all of our imperfections, but He makes us beautiful by shining through them.”

~Author Unknown~

 

 

Heavenly Father,

 

Thank You for pointing out my sin so I can confess it and repent.

 

Amen.

“Lord, as I walk my path of life,

Help my feet step straight and true;

That those who follow after me,

Will be tracking straight with You.”

~Egner~

 

“When we follow God, we blaze a trail for those who would follow.”

~Author Unknown~

 

 

 

Heavenly Father,

 

Guide my feet so that any who might follow me will see Who I was following and follow the True Master, not me.

 

Amen.
