A Thanksgiving Prayer

for 
protecting me
when
i had
no idea
of danger
for family
friends
for
providing
guiding
strengthening
and forgiving
even
before i asked
for You
Your presence
Your love
and
Your word
i am
eternally
grateful!

Oh Lord my God, I will give you thanks forever!-Psalm 30:12 NLT

My Child,  you have sat awhile with me in the early hours of this morning.  I know you will sit awhile with me before your day ends. Today, during your busy day,  will you also sit awhile with me for a few moments at noon?  I look forward to hearing your voice.

Comprehensive Commitment


Two of the definitions for the word separate in the Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary are “to sever an association” and “become divided or detached”. Based on these two definitions, one of my favorite Scripture passages would read like this: “for I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to sever an association or become divided or detached from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.1
Now, that’s what I call comprehensive commitment!

The Void


without You
Heavenly Father 
life has a void
thank You Father
that 
as You have filled the void
in our lives
today we ask that as we serve
through us
we will help 
You fill the void in those
You are calling
those You are restoring
and 
those
who You love,
In Jesus’ name,
Amen

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as
you trust in Him. – Romans 15:13 (NIV)
