How can I use the “wilderness” in my life to help others. Be patient, be empathetic, listen.
I am the only one that can give meaning to my life. I must stop and reflect. Forget the past and begin the future.
Success in the past is great; but future successes are better. Never stop achieving.
There’s hope at the end because there is no end. God deemed it so. Our end brings more dreams, more relationships, more fun, but above all more love. Love for each other, but above all, God’s love for us.
Think about that. Your thoughts; jot them down.
I am at peace because everyone I love, will love and have loved are and will be at peace.
God, thank you for my faith journey and all the people I have encountered on the way. Wow! I have been truly blessed.
I can’t get settled Lord. I have no concentration. I seek inner peace, but I can’t find it. I should be grateful, but instead I am restless. Restless, for my friends, and for those I truly love. Give me peace Lord. Give me a true understanding of who YOU are and YOUR will for my life. Amen.
God, I can’t stop praying. I am praying for my brother, my sister, my husband, my friends and my family of choice.
I am so glad that I can pray for the hurting, the loss. I am so glad that it is in my heart to pray for justice; to pray for good people to right wrong and to advance human rights and human justice.
I am praying to be productive, to be proactive, to be worthy of this life; to be worthy to be called a child of God.
God, I can’t stop praying. God, I thank you for giving me this desire to pray and to pray and to pray. God, I can’t stop praying.
God, I have not given up on you yet. I know you are still my provider. I know you will meet my needs; sometimes naturally, at other times, supernaturally. But while I wait, I also lament. Have you heard my cry?
- I have God; in spite of my faithlessness
- I was thanking God within my spirit and praying for others who are also facing challenges
- He was almost in tears. He doesn’t see how he can “live out” his passion. God, I leave that to you.
- God help me to stay hopeful.
- Why are some prayers answered and not others; why God, why?
- God surprise me today
God I do not hear from you. Is this what faith is all about; to believe still, in the face silence? Did the saints of old encounter this stone silence? I pray that I will not fail this test for I want to be counted as one your saints.
Give me wisdom, give me discernment; give me patience, but above all God give me Faith; “faith that endures when faith has failed” (McLaren, p.176).
