What’s really important?

Dear God

You are awesome, beyond comparison, you do wondrous, mighty things every day. You do things greater than I can dream or imagine!

What a turn around! What a change can come in a week!

My bf met me for dinner after work one week night. I was buzzing all day looking forward to seeing him and at the same time, stopping myself from talking about it incase there was a change of plan last minute!

My bf is thinking about buying a house in his hometown! Lord how exciting is that!?! God I don’t know what to say! But I am delighted – thrilled even! I think it’s great to try to get on the property ladder, and even better if it’s without needing a mortgage as it’s an old, tiny house, no central heating insitu! Am I crazy?? It’s awfully close to his work and church – maybe too close for comfort!! 😉 it’s going to take a lot of money to modernize it. It’s so small – but that could be a major positive as it means less cleaning and less space for clutter! Lord should we both contribute to the cost? We aren’t even engaged yet. Lord give us both wisdom. A old friend of mine once told me her biggest regret was getting a mortgage so young. She felt tied when she decided to go to missionary work in South America. The beauty of this is we could manage to pay without a mortgage!! Lord I feel scared and excited at the same time! I’m mega pleased that he is thinking of a future with me, and we are sure we want to wait till marriage before living together. It just sort of seems like such a sudden, major step forwards!! Lord open the door that you want open and close the doors that you see fit to close. I trust you and want to be led by you, even taking risks if it seems clear to be your prompting.

Lord fill us up with your Holy Spirit, for your glory, for your name to be honoured, for your power to be seen and for us to see others the way you see them. It doesn’t really matter about a house or a place to live. The most important thing is people, relationships, friendships and families — all people need you Jesus, even if we haven’t grasped it yet! You give meaning, purpose, fulfilment, hope, joy, life to the full, peace, security, comfort, real and lasting love. You don’t make life easy by any stretch of the imagination, but you make it worth living and help us through and promise to never ever leave us.

What more could I want? 🙂

amen.

The whole truth

Dear Jesus,

i adore you because you made me, you loved me even before I existed, even before the world existed, you made me, you keep me in the palm of your hand. You are good, you are mighty, you are holy and you are wonderful…

Sorry Lord for all the times when I don’t tell the whole truth, sorry for being ignorant to others on a daily basis, sorry for leaving so little time to talk to and listen to you.

Thank you that even when I feel at my roughest, you are still with me, thank you for never giving up on me, thank you for baking so faithful and fair, actually beyond fair – you are extremely gracious to me, I don’t deserve your kindness at all!

Please help me to be open and responsive to your prompts. Please help me to have the courage to be generous and give financially to those in need in the Philippines this week. Please take away the pain in dad’s hand. In Jesus name, Amen.
