I have not reached my goal, and I am not perfect. But Christ has taken hold of me. So, I keep on running and struggling to take hold of the prize. Philippians 3: 12 CEV
Our mighty Creator is preparing us for His greatness. Gods not finished working in our lives. He longs for us to faithfully follow Jesus as He guides, provides and prepares our hearts to be blessed.
Sometimes we forget God created us for a purpose. He orchestrates our days and nurtures desire to discover where to go. He tugs at our hearts, longs for us to feel His nudging and find comfort in the presence of His love.
As we seek Him with all of our hearts, Jesus gives us peace. He carries burdens and provides the comfort of release. He reminds us who handles our days and helps us step closer to God.
God will reveal His will when the time is right. He will help us stay on course, grow our faith and allow us to witness what we've never seen before. He will provide strength to persevere and help us recognize we are held by His holiness.
He will move us in the right direction, when we’re willing to go and teach us valuable lessons along the way. If we truly BELIEVE God is with us, EVERY step of FAITH will lead us to a beautiful reward. We will find gratitude for who we are becoming because of His great LOVE.
Dear God, thank you for arming us with everything we need to move in the right direction. You love us through weakness and help us find STRENGTH to persevere. Thank you for knowing what’s best for our days. Grow our FAITH and allow us to witness what happens when we TRUST in You. Thank you for the MANY ways You bless us. Thank you for Jesus and perfect PEACE. We’re so grateful for the goodness of Your LOVE. Help us walk closer to you in this new year of opportunity and continue to remember why YOU are deserving of our PRAISE. Thank you, Lord! Thank you! Amen
