Sometimes the words of another say it all…thanks Chioms
This came from my heart today, because I saw an image of myself with my forehead permanently wrinkled with the worry and stress of the journey and I said to myself, noooooo!!
No because my cry to Him has been that I would enjoy the journey, no matter what He takes me to or through, because this life which He has chosen for me and chosen me for is perfect; Made perfect in and because of Him.
Therefore I choose Him always and I choose to give Him thanks and praise knowing that this is a good life. A very good life (Jer 29:11).
I pray for peace for you; God’s peace not the world’s. That the stresses and strains of the journey, what it has taken to get you here, to this place in Christ… that the drama, the heartache, the tears, the distress, the conflict and the separation – the frustrations, the discomfort of the new and the pain of the separation with the old would all take their proper context and therefore the accurate perspective in God.
I pray that all you would be left with would be an unhindered connection with the source of your peace who is God. I pray for an overwhelming awareness of His peace, love and understanding, that you would no longer carry the burdens and pressure of the journey either physically or emotionally or any other -ly :). In its place would be the joy of the expectation of the destination to which you are being carried by your Maker.
He who is your Husband, caregiver, nurturer, provider, comforter, shelter and strength; whatever His unique expression is to you. I pray that no matter what, you would go on with joy and expectation of Him in you, filling you and overshadowing you. That whatever lies ahead (even what the world calls hardships) you would move forward boldly and with His joy and His peace surrounding and encompassing you dear one to Him, dear one of His.
I pray this for myself too, because eish man, I need this… I pray this in Jesus’ name. I bless you.
I need this prayer as much as my sister and so Lord, I join my voice with hers.
May we all find you Lord and walk in your ways…till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ; that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head—Christ—from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love. Eph 4:13-16 NKJV
Amen. May it be so for us who are called by His name.
