…the greatest of these is love.

Image

Oh my goodness Lord God! My boyfriend said he loved me yesterday and it made my heart leap for joy! 😀

Aww I feel so chuffed! Thank you God for bringing him into my life, he is 100x better than I deserve!!!

God bless him and may his love for You increase more and more every day. Fill him up with your Holy Spirit, peace, joy and hope. And me too!

God I love him so much! ❤

God should I pray with him? Should I initiate it or wait and let him? I need wisdom!

Help me to respect him, encourage him, build him up and always to think before I speak! God forgive me for the couple of times I’ve told him off, been cheeky and made fun of him. He is gentle, sweet, generous, patient, peace making, courageous and fit!

Jesus you are my number one desire! You are perfect, holy, merciful, you never break your promises, you never change your mind, you are good all the time.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!
In Jesus’ mighty and precious name.
Amen

Live life hands on like Jesus

O God

Thank you so much for helping me today…. I would have messed up big time without you!

I slept in, phone ran outta battery so missed three calls, ran outta credit then took three attempts to top up. Missed breakfast and lunch.

But thank you God because you woke me up in time, the three people left me voicemail messages and I got my cereal and a banana after work.

Lord help me to not idolise facebook… Actually think I should delete my fb app for a while! I check it every day, it’s usually the first thing I do and often I don’t even open my bible.

Sorry God for losing touch with you and with my community and even my housemate. Social media can mean we spend hours in company but feeling lonely, not having eye contact.

Help me to see things the way you do, and to show real love, like you Jesus.

I want go to become more like you, living life hands on.

Thinking I’ll go out for a wee jog in the park now, instead of sitting here on my bedroom floor, in an empty house, staring at an ipad. God give me boldness to see the endless opportunities in front of me. Thank you for the conversation about heaven and You earlier today with a patient’s parent. Bless them, heal them, strengthen their faith and show them your deep deep love.

God you are wonderful.
Jesus you are mighty.
Amen.

I am addicted to you!!!

Image

Jesus my Saviour

You are my Lord. King of kings. I am addicted to you!

Lord you know everything going on in my life at the moment (and always!), you know that I am excited and a bit scared about the great responsibility in my new job. You know that I am a bit stressed about my housemate. And that I am gradually falling deeper in love with my bf… Lord you also know I haven’t been reading your Word regularly, I haven’t been setting aside time to pray and speak to you. I have neglected my quiet times and my idea for lent to go for a walk every day. Jesus the only thing I have been doing is praying as I go through my daily activities and singing along to worship CDs in the car. That is not good enough! I want more of you. I want to know you more! I want to be more hungry for your word!

Thank you for the passages I’m reading at the moment in Leviticus, Job and Acts. Thank you for the privilege of having unlimited access to the bible – that is so precious!

Thank you that my bf also has faith in you Jesus, it is such a blessing to have that in common. Lord please help me to live for you every day, in and out of work.
God I’m thinking of what happened today, a person I met said they do tarot and told me what they think is in store for me… What should I do?! I didn’t want to even hear that! Aagh!!!

Please protect me and fill me with your Holy Spirit, in Jesus name. Amen.

Oh my!

What a day!

Thank you for answering prayer God.
And thank you that sometimes you don’t !

You are in control and I trust you.

You know me better than I know myself.

You are better than my wildest dreams!
You made the whole universe. You are mighty!

How can it be that you want us to know you personally!?

Jesus you are my everything. You are Lord of all.

Jesus thank you for dying for me even though you know I don’t deserve it and never could deserve it! Thank you for loving me even more than my parents do or any parents could love their child.

Sorry God for being judgemental.
Sorry God for being pre-occupied with myself.
Sorry God for not being loving to others.

Make me more like you Jesus.

You are wonderful.

You are powerful.

You are my firm foundation.

Thank you for holding me in the palm of your hand, for kissing the top of my head and comforting me every day and every night of my life. Even when I mess up so bad.

Help me to love others and to love you before myself.
Thanks for helping me be efficient with my work today.
You are so good to me. Bless me more! Amen xx

Do not awaken love before it is ready (SoS 2:7)

Image

Dear Lord

You are good, so good, all the time! I adore you! I am amazed by you, I am in awe of you. You are a mystery, you are greater than I can express, you are beyond anything I’ve comprehended!

Sorry Lord for lying to so many people this week, including you know who! I felt so stressed and guilty about it, and now I don’t know what to expect – disapproval or punishment, I’m not sure which is worse tbh. I put a big portion of my pride into holding onto other people’s approval. Even that I need to confess ! Sorry lord, help me to be firstly concerned with your approval, which I know is unconditional so please just renew my desire to honour you.

Thank you God for my friends, even the couple who give me doubtful advice! Thank you for my family, thank you for helping me to have wisdom on Sunday evening. Thank you for my job and my lovely boss who cares about me and the other seniors for encouraging me!

Please God, may I not awaken love before it is ready! (Song of Songs 2:7)
Please God may I not build up an idealistic picture of _ in my head after one date.
Help me not put pressure on him, help him to manage his prior commitments well.
Help me to not scare him away by being too keen, but at the same time please help me to genuinely show my interest and be myself.

Lord I pray for him as he does his work today and youth fellowship this weekend, I pray for mine too, help me as I prepare the lesson and may the kids read the book and hear your voice to them individually. Lord Jesus I pray that you will help me catch up on all my work, choose good, meaningful gifts that will be appreciated and keep me safe as I drive today. Bless my brothers and sisters.

In Jesus name, amen!

Endless love

Image

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.
