When I was younger, I remember asking my Daddy what was his favorite color. He exclaimed it to be blue and red. From that day on I fell in love with the color blue! It was because he liked it that I, his daughter, loved it.
Lord, what is Your favorite color? I want to be Your daughter and love what You like. I want to look up to You in Your power and might, so that I can be just like You. Every word that comes from Your mouth, I want to trust to be true and rely it to others. The way You walk, I want to emulate it so that it becomes my own. Show me from Your example how to greet and treat others.
Many times and in different circumstances You have told me to keep straight, while someone close to me says make a left. And during those times I have made a left, which only led to a dead end. Then I turn around and head back on the straight and narrow just like You said. Well, Lord I want to eliminate that mistake of letting other’s rule over Your word. From my best friends, to my parents, let me realize the dire importance of saying yes to You. Father God let me also understand my yes to You does not mean no to them. Even if it does, let me be confident in saying yes and trusting You.
At every dead end Father God, You have met me with grace, mercy, and patience. Thank You for conveying those attributes of You. Now at this beginning Sovereign Ruler, please give me strength, discipline, and perseverance as You had while You showed Your love for me through the journey to the cross. (HALLELUJAH, Your rose with victory!)
Hey Daddy, which fruit is the sweetest tasting to You? Can I try some? 🙂
i want to go but it’s not time for me to go yet. i want to have it but it’s not time yet. i want to experience but it’s not time yet. i think i am ready but it’s not time yet.
Lord, I need a LOT of patience. Help me to be grateful for where I have gone. Help me to be grateful for what i do have. Help me to be grateful for what I have experienced. Help me to prepare for the things that are ready for me.
In this way, I will be able to enjoy the places, things, and experiences You have granted to me. If I cannot be grateful for what I have now all my life, then I will be in this pattern of looking for the next thing instead of enjoy all of the benefits of these here and now things. I am learning through this God that life is not just about new things, or even me maturing but life includes letting the things that I have now mature. Instead of getting bored or no longer enjoying the things I have, I should repeat the task as if it is the first time. For otherwise, I am just taking advantage of that which has so much more to offer me. I would be taking advantage of it because I’m not giving to it my all and I’m stopping whatever all it has to give to me. As a forever student, I have to allow for an old lesson to teach me something new even if I can’t see it maybe I should seek it.
BTW Father God, I want to thank You for protecting me and leading me closer to You no matter who or what is trying to keep me from living a fearless and faithful life in Christ! You are over the top awesome in how You love me. I am grateful that in Psalms 91 and Jer. 29:11 and Job 8:21 and Phil. 4:4-9 and James 1 and the rest of the Bible that I believe in are “alive and active and sharper than a double edged sword.” (Hebrews 4: 12)
I am 23 years old as of yesterday! WoW! Thank You for the blessings throughout the years that I have seen or have missed or haven’t realized were You but totally were. Lord, you still are blessing me today!
I am a writer but sometimes I fall of the wagon so Lord know that I love you and will always enjoy the way You love me.
He will yet fill your mouth with laughter and your lips with shouts of joy. ~Job 8:21
