My Hand is Up

Published August 22, 2012 by vfAith

Dear Lord,

I have been waiting for the realization of how and when You would use me.  You have used me my whole life in different situations and such.  But God I want You to show me how You are using me, so that I can praise You for it and give You the glory!

Holy God, I have a friend who has been through a lot with me.  She has been hurt by me many times.  But each time I hurt her, she was honest with me, and You where sharpening me and making me more like You through it all.  Now Lord it seems that she is the one who needs reshaping and sharpening. So God, I am raising my hand and asking You to use me as a tool to help her.  The one being sharpened doesn’t always realize what is happening, doesn’t understand the pain, doesn’t want to accept the change, and doesn’t like the unfamiliar territory.  She doesn’t see as You have shown me that she is being reshaped.  Because she doesn’t see it, she lashes out at me because of the pain and frustrations that is caused.

Father, I forgive her for the hurt that I feel because she is lashing out on me.  I forgive her for the frustration because she doesn’t see like I see.  I forgive her for the harshness because I put her through the same thing for years.  I forgive her for the resistance because I love her dearly.  I forgive her for the rebellion because she helped me to come to this place of peace in You.  I forgive her ungodliness because You are reshaping and sharpening me too!

Heavenly Hosts, guide her into the arms of the Savior.  Savior, my hand is up; please call on me and use me until she is sharpened like a double edged sword.

Thank You God and I glorify Your name.


Your Love and Friend
