A Prayer For Accomplishment

Selfie

Today’s Prayer

Dear Lord,

I pray that You will give me the insight as to how to use the tools You have given me–whether spiritual gifts, talents, skills, work place or other–as a ministry in daily life.

I don’t just want to work, take care of my self and my family, my dwelling place, and participate in church life, I want to actually have a mind of ministry to do Your will and impact lives for You.

May You move and minister through my life to accomplish Your purpose.

Thank You.

In Jesus’ name, amen.

A Prayer About Plans

Sunshine in Greece

Today’s Prayer

God,

When I remember the story of Joseph’s life,

I realize how you want so much more for me than I could ever dream of.

I also see how you can turn what man means for evil into what you mean for good.

Please bring this to my mind whenever I’m feeling doubt and confusion;

whenever I’m feeling oppressed and alone;

whenever I’m feeling unjustly treated;

whenever I think that I don’t have something I need.

I know that you are in control.

I pray that I will always allow you to do your work and that I will not interfere in your plans for me.

Please give me strength and fill me with your desires for me.

Thank you,

loving Father.

In Jesus’ name,

amen.

A Prayer About Friendship

Dear God,

Do other people see me as a faithful friend or a burdensome buddy?

I pray that I will be the kind of person that other people love and appreciate; not a person that others want to avoid.

And I pray that I will be a good friend to others.

“A man that hath friends must show himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother” (Proverbs 18:24).

Help me to improve my friendship skills…and to be an example of your love in all I do.

Thank you, God.

In Jesus’ name I pray and give you praise, amen.

A Prayer For Discernment

Today’s Prayer
“Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour” (1 Pet. 5:8).

Dear Lord, I am so aware of howΒ Satan picks at me and tries to trip me all the time.

I know there are spiritual dangers around me.

Please help me to remain alert and to be under the Holy Spirit’s control at all times.

I want to draw near to You, so the devil will flee.

Please protect my family and me from harm and evil.

Thank You for Your love, concern, and protection.

InΒ Jesus’ name, amen.

Praying Hands

I felt impressed to share this prayer with you all. My peers at college are busy watching the new film “Evil Dead” and I decided that I was going to check my emails so that I didn’t have to watch it.

As I was reading I came across an email that I hadn’t yet read. The prayer seemed so perfect for me right now as I have been praying during this movie.

I can hear everything that is going on in the film and can see how intrigued my peers are, but I can see the Lord and would rather commune with Him than stray into the devils territory.

Praise be to God, who loves me and will always protect me even when it seems that I am in a difficult situation that may test my relationship with Him.

The Good Friday Prayer

Good Friday

Today’s Prayer
O dear heavenly Father, this day brings heaviness to my heart and joy to my soul.

Good Friday, the day that those of us who are followers of Christ “Christians” recognize the moment in history when your Son, our Savior, was led to the Cross, to suffer crucifixion and physical death and experience separation from You because of our sin.

I am so sorry that my sin and the sin of mankind made it necessary for such a sacrifice.

I’m sorry that my sin caused Jesus such pain and grief and caused your heart to break.

I thank You for providing a way for me to come to You through Jesus.

I thank You that Good Friday was not the end, but that Jesus Christ resurrected on the third day and sits at your right hand today, interceding on my behalf and on behalf of all who come to Him with belief and faith and repentance.

I remember today and I am grateful. For it is in the name of Jesus that I can come to you,

Father.

Lovingly,

amen.

I hope that you all have a lovely weekend and a wonderful Good Friday reflecting on God and resting from a busy week πŸ™‚

Praise The Lord

Praise The Lord!

It’s been a long time since I’ve done a poem, so here goes πŸ™‚

Praise The Lord,

You are my sword.

You keep me from hurt and harm,

under an angels arm.

You love me so much,

It’s you I wish to touch.

You are my Heavenly Dad,

and for that reason I no longer need to be sad.

Praise the Lord!

I know that that was probably rubbish, but oh well. It’s best to keep things simple. πŸ™‚ Nighty night all! From Nadine

My New Muse: Steady My Heart By Kari Jobe

Musical Notes

For those who don’t know, I am a huge fan of Kari Jobe and have been listening and sharing her songs with you for quite a while. (If you don’t believe me, check the post below :). )

This particular song that I will share with you today is currently one of my favorites and one that I love to tire out as I’m singing it all the time. It just reminds me of happiness and love and reminds me that God is always there and is always looking after me even when life throws something I don’t like at me πŸ™‚

Here is the song for you to listen to and the video for you to watch. Reflect on the lyrics and remember that the sun always shines at the end of even the darkest tunnels.

Consider this the thought for the day πŸ™‚

Time To Hear

Hi everyone!

Yesterday I was s checking my emails and I came across this lovely one. I thought that I would share it with you because I believe that God should come first everyday and that we should look after our bodies. I hope that you enjoy it and that it helps you with your daily walk with god πŸ™‚

Today’s Prayer
Dear Father in Heaven, praise be to your name in all the earth! Thank you for the years of good health you have given, and for walking me through the times when I have been ill or faced physical problems. I pray that I, and every Christian, will always be mindful of the fact that our bodies are the temples of the Holy Spirit. We want to keep ourselves clean, pure, and as healthy as possible, for we need to be good examples and have good testimonies before others. We need to honor you and your Spirit through our bodies, as well as our minds and actions. Please give us wisdom and knowledge of right things to eat, the right ways to exercise, and motivate us to do what we must to stay in shape and be healthy. So often we get busy and have so much to do, that we do not make time to take care of our physical bodies. Open the door, give us the desire, and show us the way. May we take care of what you have given us. In the name of the Savior I pray, amen.


Time to Hear
TGIF Today God Is First Volume 1, by Os Hillman

“He who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I too will love him and show Myself to him.” – John 14:21b

We live in a day of 12-step programs for this, four points to success for that, and all forms of programmed means of becoming successful. Have you ever wondered how you can guarantee a greater revelation of Jesus in your life? Jesus tells us how this can be done. It is all tied to obedience. In John, He tells us the following: “Whoever has My commands and obeys them, he is the one who loves Me. He who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I too will love him and show Myself to him” (Jn. 14:21). The key here is in the last three words. He will show Himself to us because of our loving Him through our obedience. The more obedient we become, the more revelation of His presence we will feel in our life. Jeremiah tells us, “Call to Me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know” (Jer. 33:3).

Many Christians wonder why they cannot hear or sense God’s presence in their life. It is because they do not seek Him with a whole heart, and they are not obedient to the things He has asked. God does not show us the next move until we are obedient to the first thing He has spoken to us. It is a progressive process. He entrusts the small things to us first, then moves us to the larger. I was like many today who are so focused on seeking the activity of God rather than seeking God Himself. Hebrews tells us that God rewards those who diligently seek Him. In the Old Testament we are told, “But if from there you seek the Lord your God, you will find Him if you look for Him with all your heart and with all your soul” (Deut. 4:29).

I realized if I was going to hear God’s voice, I had to make time to seek Him and hear Him. I had to spend focused time alone reading, studying, and seeking His face only. Jesus set the model for this when He often left the crowds to be alone and seek His heavenly Father. I also had to tune my “radio” to His frequency. Static comes into that frequency when I am disobedient. My level of seeking determines the power of my “radio” to reach Him. The more I seek Him, the more I hear Him. Seek the Lord today so that you may be empowered by His presence.

Thoughts to Ponder

“God doesn’t remove all our imperfections but He makes us beautiful by shining through them”

“The most valuable commentary on the Bible is a Godly Life”

“God’s judgment is certain, but so is His mercy”

“Those who’ve been rescued from sin are best able to help in the rescue of others”

“Do all the good, you can, in all the ways that you can, for all the people you can, while you can”

I think that today’s theme is all about our character. I strive to have a character that best reflects God because who wouldn’t want to be as loving as Him? Also it is having a good character that makes God happy. He doesn’t want us to be horrible to each other because that’s not what He made us for.

How are we to tell the good news to people if we are ugly on the inside and are always miserable and don’t want to share anything with anyone because we don’t like them? We can’t. We should follow in the path that Jesus laid out for us because He loves us. If we love Jesus we should love others because that’s what He does.

I love God and I believe that He is so so good to me and you. It’s amazing that even though we are all imperfect he will shine through us if we allow Him and if we really want to be like Him and set a good example. I hope you understand what I mean πŸ™‚

I know that everyone’s views are different, so if you have a different opinion or if you can better explain what I am trying to get across, then please leave a comment below πŸ™‚

I hope that you all have a good night and that you remember to let God into your heart through prayer and ask Him to let Himself be seen in you rather than our sinful selves.

God bless,

From Nadine

A Best Friend

A Best Friend
I found this picture on FaceBook and thought that it was really lovely. This reminded me immegiately of Jesus beacuse He is our best freind and He knows everything about us. Our wrongs and rights, but He still loves us so so much. I just want you to remember that so that if there is ever a time when you feel that the world is against you and that there is no one there for you, you will remember this quote by Elbert and you think of God (even though this may not be what Elbert was implying, it’s what it means to me).

I hope you all have a lovely evening and a good night πŸ™‚
