Hope For Today
Brothers, listen! We are here to proclaim that through this Man Jesus
there is forgiveness for your sins. Everyone who believes in Him
is declared right with God. Acts 13:38-39
God, I wish others could see what You do for me in the Bible. But when I want to tell them or show them and want to put it on my blog, it is not the same.
The bubble is gone. In quiet time hours You encircle me in holy Spirit’s wonder bubble, and we are together: Human woman and God. When others see it the bubble is gone and the words are bare. Holiness walls are running away like a liquid without substance.
Lord, give Holy Spirit to them so you can capture the forever. I don’t want passing ships in the night acquaintances. I want to pass Your seeds to everyone that crosses my path. I want You to grow it and cause it to be watered, right there in their hearts.
Lovely people with hearts so set in stone. Eyes become a glass door when You are mentioned. Some have open moments, but the grossness of life since birth has engraved a pattern that spews anger. My prayer is, Jesus, you will fill these hearts with forgiveness and love and their mouths will be the evidence of what you have done.
Get people to run to you with the negative. You, Lord, are my rubbish dump. I take my moans to you. I have seen you turn it to beauty; over and over again. I learnt this from David in the Psalms. He took his trash to You and ended up in praise. Always hope in Your presence, and always Your presence following us as we leave the throne room.
So important to feed our minds and bodies with a positive. Not to waste time watching or reading things that has no eternal value. This is how you hide Gods word in Your heart; by eating and drinking with Him continuously.
Max Lucado says in his book Traveling Light; “God changes the ‘n’ into a ‘v’. You go from lonely to lovely.”
(And just after having written this prayer yesterday, I went in to the day driving people from morning till late afternoon; and what did I do? I slipped on a moaning tongue while giving from a begrudging heart, then lapped up some gossip without as much as a no-vote. Can you understand how the next verse is my hope for today: “Brothers, listen! We are here to proclaim that through this Man Jesus there is forgiveness for your sins. Everyone who believes in Him is declared right with God” (Acts 13:38-39). His mercy is new every morning! A new day, a new beginning.)
