I have been behaving like an orphan..a child with no Father..at least in my headbut let's be honest. What's in my head comes out in my daily living. Have you noticed that too?
perusing through several books I use during my quiet times a theme seemed to emergedon't quit I AM here - very real very present you are not alone
and in the way only my Abba who knows my heart intimately can do I immediately sensed my hand in His as His Spirit breathed new life into these two little words
as I've shared here many times Jesus Calling is my favorite devotional ever. This is my third year using it so I've read these words three times- I know them but how easily I forget it!
::::::::When you bring Me prayer requests, lay out your concerns before Me. Speak to Me candidly; pour out your heart. Then thank Me for the answers that I have set into motion long before you can discern results. When your requests come to mind again, continue to thank ME for the answers that are on the way. If you keep on stating your concerns to Me, you will live in a state of tension. When you thank Me for how I am answering your prayers, your mind set becomes much more positive. THANKFUL PRAYERS keep your focus on My Presence and My promises--Jesus Calling January 11
so there is my direction for today. KNOW that He is already answered and I am to be thankful ( whether I feel it or not ) so instead of redundant asking for the same things throughout the day i will instead say thank you and go about my business.
i am soooo not God.. and i laugh because so often i think i am
I made this for you.. I believe it is an excerpt from a book that changed my life and I wrote it in front of my journal last year and recently typed this up to tape in this years journal. I tweaked some of the words to make it personal and added a few words but I LOVE starting out my quiet time reading it. It seems to get my focus in a good space and I pray it will bless you too:)
I intentionally move into your space...Your presence
and listen to recognize Your Voice..Your Spirit and
move into the Light of Your Being
in my consciousness
and open my mind to share all
my thoughts, plans, pain, joys and worries
as I look to You as
my sanctifier and
my Giver of assurance
concerning my “daughter”ship before you---
