My Fickle Life

In my fickle life, I know it is His amazing love that was shed for me. It is in my weakness that He shows Himself valiant in my life. In these days of weakness I manage to delve into the inner most parts of Holy Spirit. When I am in this beautiful place I allow Him to carry me. Yes, we need to allow Him, receive His grace-resilient power strengthens us. He is walking alongside us waiting for that invite so He can carry us thru to the other side.

So in and of myself I am nothing but flesh and blood with human ties and bonds. It is He who gives me purpose for life-He shows me the way by lighting my path. So each day I approach His throne open minded offering myself and my mere circumstances and trade it for His companionship-His grace and purpose.

Use me Lord. Let your will be done in my life and in the lives of those I influence. You Lord get all the glory. I exist to give your life, death, and resurrection meaning to those walking in darkness. I am here to be your instrument to produce fruit. Lord Jesus bring me to the Father and show me blameless without spot or wrinkle. All because of Your personal sacrifice my journey whether easy or at times hard and gruesome will bring about fruit to shine your presence.

Today I pray that all our days bring you pleasure fulfilling your call and purpose in our lives. We give you thanks Lord for your truth and righteousness being brought forth in our lives whether the evidence is evident or hidden we praise you Lord. Thank you for your life's example to us. Today we pray for courage, boldness and for an infusion of more of your Love and Power! Amen.

School is Out

Whether you are a High School Graduate or have received any college degree or higher education certificate saying you are ready to go into the world and be productive, the excitement of success or fear of failure is present. Now it is time to use what you have learned all those years. This is where the rubber meets the road. It is no longer about the talk; it is all about the WALK. So you get your tools of the trade together and off you go.

It is somewhat different when you talk about your relationship with Jesus. Do you remember the time when you asked Him to live with and in you? You wanted Him to become your best friend and for Holy Spirit to be your guide. At that same time you picked up your tool, the Bible, and began your faith WALK. This is the hallmark to your Spiritual Life's Journey.

Never forget His promises. And if you want to know more, read His loving encouraging Word. So read, study, and attend all the functions you can to grow into the image and likeness of the one who created you. You will undergo some fabulous changes and produce unique fruit that none else can produce.

This life journey of yours is different than that of a career. When you are walking with the Lord you learn as you go. Holy Spirit is the true teacher who guides, instructs, and comforts as you go.

For you are unique and specifically designed for greatness. You are like a shining light and His glory will be known by your life's footsteps.

Let us pray. "Father we will begin today to place our sights on you and grow our faith by following the lead of Holy Spirit. We will be your apprentices on this journey called life. Give us Your Love and Your Power. Fill in our hurt wounded places with a supernatural peace so that we may carry out your plan for our lives. May we be so one with You that Your hearts desires for us become ours. In Jesus Name we pray."

Hosea 6:3 
Let us acknowledge the Lord; Let us press on to acknowledge Him. As surly as the sun rises He will appear; He will come to us like the winter rains, like the spring rains that water the earth. (NIV)

Tranquility in chaos and the promise of healing during times of sickness! Well these days for me are filled with chaos and sickness. It took a friend to lead me to my place of peaceful rest. Believe me during these times one is very self-centered. I know I am. Demanding and miserable, that's me! I hated myself for that too. The Lord is so kind and understanding; He just waits until you listen. That is what He did for me to recognize Him at work in our lives. Yes, I do forgive myself for being so rude, demanding and sharp to those who love and care for me.

I know I will have days ahead of being miserable, but I know when I get over it, God is there to provide what I need. His peace, His loving arms will wrap around me giving me all I need. To be present with Him moment by moment, minute by minute, day by day; that is my prayer. I pray we all get to know our Lord and Savior in a deeper way. Our relationship with Him will provide all we need. Just reach out and touch Him. He is waiting for you just as He awaits me.

When I think of my husband, I know he is a gift from God. He is my main caregiver and the best ever. He loves me when I do not even love myself. Forgiving and giving he is walking this walk with me. Today I ask as you pray for me don't forget that man I love. In some ways he has a harder journey then I.

Together we pray, Lord fill us from the innermost to the outermost. Provide with us a place of rest a place where all we need is provided by Your un-measurable love. Allow us Lord to be aware of the work you have before us, allow us to join in Your work of love and experience your mercy and grace that flows from your throne room.

Until next time, Blessings to you all. Dianne
