Dear Lord, I need peace. I need Your peace - the peace that passeth understanding. I don't know what to do, I don't have the answers - but You do. You know exactly what needs to happen, and what will happen, long before it ever happens. You've known exactly what needed to happen in my life since before I was even born. I bring you my needs, my wants, my hopes and dreams, the desires of my heart, and I lay them at Your feet. I long for You to wrap Your arms around me and love me, and just to let me know that everything is going to be okay. Hold me, Lord, surround me with your love, your grace, your peace. I need You, and only You. I long to please You. Thank You Lord for loving me, the most unloveable, and for making me your daughter - a princess. I love You Jesus, and I pray in Your most precious and holy name, Amen.
I was so blessed at church this morning. We are still in transition, visiting, and I don't know for sure yet where God would have us now. My husband is still reeling from the loss of our home church, and he is having a hard time even thinking about getting rooted in anywhere yet. We need guidance, we need healing. We don't want to miss God. I put the picture at the top in here because when I stand under this tree in our yard and look up at the sky I think it is such a peaceful place. God has given me this beautiful view in my own yard, a place where I can truly appreciate the beauty He has created, and as I pray for peace I thought this picture was appropriate. I need the Lord to calm my mind, drive out fear, overcome doubt. I just need to be so full of Jesus that there is no room for any of that other stuff, any of that negativity. I need to know that God will bring me the right job so that our family will be provided for, so that food will be on our table, so that our needs will be met.
Oh God, I receive the answers you have for me because I know that You hold those answers already. You're not brainstorming somewhere about what is going to happen in my life. You already know. I receive, I receive what You have for our family, and for me.
