Dear God – there must be more than this!?

Lord Jesus

I know you are great! You know best! You are the only truly Faithful one. Nothing compares to you, even Bf doesn’t come close.

I’m sorry for putting him on a pedestal, for having such high expectations of him and holding him in your place. I’m sorry for not putting you first and for not encouraging him enough to put you first!! Help us Lord. I’m sorry for feeling resentful towards wise, elderly J as she suggests that he should be making more effort to come and see me on week nights. God I found and still find that extremely difficult. I tell myself he maybe doesn’t want to interrupt my plans, he maybe is busy, doesn’t have time after work or that I should be driving down to see him as I finish work 90mins before he does! Lord what do you think I should do? J thinks I should end it. I think I should try driving down mid week to see him once a week or fortnightly.

Thank you Lord for giving me a job closer to home and closer to him. Thank you that now we are only 45 miles apart, compared to 90-100! Lord it is interesting that we haven’t once met up mid-week since I’ve moved, despite it being 5months ago! Is that significant?

Lord I feel like I am struggling with lust! Every time I’m with bf I feel turned on. Every night (almost) I feel a longing to be next to him, I feel envy towards engaged and married couples and I long to be settled and have security and intimacy. I don’t want to put pressure on bf, I wonder if it’s wise to tell him how strongly I feel and I wonder if J is right and sincerely hope she’s not!!! Lord help me know what to do. I need Godly wisdom and spiritual understanding. Is it right to expect him to meet me midweek? Am I asking too much? I’ve been through all this before already — I wept when I asked him once if maybe weekends were all he wanted, maybe it was enough for him. Maybe it’s best to leave things the way they are. Maybe I am being impatient.

Maybe I am obsessing over it? I don’t honestly know.
How did Esau work 14 years (7×2) to win Rebecca’s dad’s approval to marry her?!?

Anyway now it’s time for me to get up and on with my work.
Lord thank you for free will, and the freedom of being single. Thank you for bf and J and how precious both of them are to me. Guide me Lord. Thank you that you love me even more than I can appreciate or understand, far more that I can reciprocate. Please help me to be motivated by love in my relationship, attitude and actions towards bf and others. Thank you for always being with me and continually helping me!

In Jesus name. Amen.

Why do you love me??

Ephesians 2:4-10
But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved— and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.

Isaiah 10:14
My hand has found like a nest the wealth of the peoples; and as one gathers eggs that have been forsaken, so I have gathered all the earth; and there was none that moved a wing or opened the mouth or chirped.

Dear Lord,

I asked you why you love me and now I know!
You made me, i am your workmanship, you made me perfectly, exactly how you wanted, you have gathered us like eggs that have been forsaken. We are alive together with you Jesus!

Thank you for loving me! Thank you for saving me! What an incredible gift!

I love you too.

Amen

I am like the prostitute

Wow Jesus!

I have been thinking about the prophet in bible times – Hosea and how God told him to marry a prostitute and how it was to show God’s people how much he loves them… Even though we ignore him, turn away from him, do what we want and leave him time after time, he still chooses to love us unconditionally and pursues us and forgives us. Thank you for all the second chances and that even though I’ve let you down so many times you still forgive me and love me. Help me to understand your love – real love. Help me to love others the way you love me, help me to forgive them over and over again, the way you keep forgiving me. Sorry for hurting you so much and also hurting my family.

Thank you so much for your grace and redeeming love.

Amen.

God is in control

Oh my God! I love you but seriously am scared at the prospect of having an interview so soon! Aaggh! Oh my goodness! Worrying about messing up big time, looked back at the cv I left in and noticed a really stupid mistake on it which so obviously shows I have cut and pasted the cv from a previous job I applied for!!! :-O

And Lord – I’m working this weekend!?! Bit of a bummer, work, revision and missing the bf…not the best combination ! Sigh! Well God thank you for the interview! I wasn’t expecting it!

Psalms 86:5
For you, O Lord, are good and forgiving, abounding in steadfast love to all who call upon you.

Lord Jesus

I adore you because you suffered to save me. You are humble, even though you are king of kings. Jesus you are compassionate, you turn the world’s values upside down. You never are selfish. You are God. All things work together because of you. You are so good.

Sorry God for always putting myself first, I seem to know no other way of living. Sorry God for always making excuses for not doing what I should be doing. Sorry for not being grateful and for complaining even though you are is good to me.

Thank you Lord for listening to me, thank you for letting me turn to you and return to you even after ignoring and disobeying you. Thank you for the unlimited opportunities I have to share your love, thank you for giving me the opportunity to get a promotion, thank you for my previous boss giving me advice and encouragement.

Please help me to take it on board, to learn what she’s recommended and to be ready and confident for the test. May your will be done! Lord I pray for g as she considers her options for next year, guide her to the doors you have opened for her. I pray for c as she volunteers at the games, give her energy and fill her with your Holy Spirit and joy. I pray for my friends who are not yet seeking you – please God help me to be a good influence on them. And finally I pray for my bf, bless him Lord Jesus, fill him up with your Holy Spirit and help me to love him and respect him in a way that glorifies you.

In Jesus’ mighty name I pray. Amen.

Come back soon Jesus!

1 Corinthians 1:18
For the word of the cross is folly to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.

 

dear heavenly Father,

What a verse! Jesus being crucified does sound like foolishness to the world, but to us – it is the greatest thing ever. Jesus rose from the dead and is alive and he is coming back again to judge the whole world.

Lord I pray for my friend who was in a car crash today please help her, heal her and comfort her as she recovers.

Lord I pray for that lady who told me about her awful childhood. Please God draw her into your love, protect her and bless her.

Lord sorry for losing my passion for you! You are the most real thing in this world. You made it all and you alone give us life and purpose. I love you.

Thank you for helping me in my work. Please bless me and my bf in our relationships with you, our families, our workmates, friendships and each-other.

God help me tonight as I fill this form in. May your will be done. You know what the best plan is! You are the greatest!

Jesus come back soon!!!
Amen!
