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? 🙂

Endless love

Dear God,

I just want to spend some time with you this morning, before clearing up everything from yesterday, before showering and getting ready for another day with the extended family, and before going back to work tomorrow. I do love my job though!

Thank you so much for—
1/ Warm snuggly pyjamas,
2/ A family who love me,
3/ Good health,
4/ Pretty clothes and jewellery,
5/ The ability and ready access to read your word
6/ Tasty and nutritious food
7/ Forgiveness, grace and mercy
8/ A great job
9/ Caring friends
10/ and last but definitely not least – your endless love

Please God show me what you want me to know today, help me to obey you. Lord you are my best friend, closer than a brother. You know everything about me. You know my name, you made me. You picked my physical features, my personality traits and gave me a soul. Lord help me to be a blessing to EVERYONE I meet and help me to make a difference in your name Jesus for the people in this world who I may or may not meet, who are the most vulnerable. Help me take my part in building your kingdom and thank you for the privilege of that!

Your disciples were not the most charismatic, charming, educated, richest men. You chose the unpopular, weak, uneducated, unrecognised, poor and simple people to spread your marvellous good news. Help me always remember that, sorry for judging people, please help me see them through your eyes Jesus…with compassion, genuine interest and seeing their potential and purpose and seeing the best in them.

God you are good, continue moulding me Lord, I have a long way to go, every day I mess up. Thank you for how easy it is to come to you, you are so approachable. I love you. Please speak to me now through your living word.

Glory to you Lord God.
Amen. Amen. Amen.

He knows me better than I know myself!

Dear God,

I adore you! You are worthy. I love you. And worship you. Blessed be your name. May your will be done. Have your way in my life. You know best. May you be glorified.

Sorry God for being so consumed by my thoughts about that fella but I’m wondering does he have a gf, I don’t want to just ask him as that makes it too obvious that I am interested and he doesn’t even seem interested in me. I feel like I am getting mixed signals from him.

O God, give me wisdom to know what to do. Thank you for everything! Thank you that I can enjoy you, get to really know Jesus, thank you for how often I get to see my friends, for good health, the privilege of having a job helping the elderly, the luxury of going to the beach yesterday, the freedom of swimming in the sea and the joy of trying to dance!

Please God, help my sister in her work, to keep up to speed and to prepare well for her yearly review that is coming up. Bless her and thank you for how generous she is to me and such a good friend for keeping me accountable.

Please help me to run as fast as I can towards you Jesus. May nothing stop me or slow me down. I signed up to a dating agency but God may your will be done. That is all I desire.

You are so good. Even when I am unfaithful to you, you remain faithful. Thank you. I don’t deserve you. I don’t deserve anything good. You are completely awesome. May my first priority be honouring You and encouraging people to get closer to you!

In Jesus powerful name,
Amen.
