Hold My Hand, O Lord

God, I want what You want for my life.

I know I may not like it at first…but Your will, Your plans, are what’s best for me.

Use me, O Lord, for Your glory.

I want to fall in complete surrender to Your arms.

Please hold my hand through my life, may I never let go, but hold on to You alone forever.

Lead my life, Lord.

In Jesus name, amen.

Awesome

God is awesome.

Think about that word for a minute. Awesome.

According to dictionary.com one definition of awesome is “inspiring awe”.

It has become one of my favorite words used to describe God. It’s a pretty special word to me and I try to use it only to describe Him. He’s the only one who is truly awesome.

I want to be in “inspiring awe” of Him. I want to be overwhelmed by His grace, to smile when I think of His name. I want to praise Him when I wake up and as I go to sleep, and every minute in between.

He’s done some pretty great things in my life and I long to bring glory to His name. And as you can see by my title that’s what we’re made for.

So pray for me…that God will use me to bring glory to Himself and that I will truly be in awe of Him. Our awesome God is so worthy of it!

I also would love to hear from you…is there any way I could pray for you? Just leave a comment.

Hope your Sunday has been as great as mine :)

Let us boast in the Lord who has given us too many blessings to count…


“But let him who boasts boast in this, that he understands and knows Me, that I am the Lord who practices steadfast love, justice, and righteousness in the earth. For in these things I delight, declares the Lord.”
Jeremiah 9:24

Five Minute Friday

Hello all!

Last week my mama decided we would start doing Five Minute Friday during our school discussion time together. For those who don’t know what Five Minute Friday is then it’s pretty simple. You’re given a word and write about that word for five minutes. So our word today was…………

FMF- joy

Joy. Now…I’ll confess that I actually spent a little more than 5 minutes writing about mine :)…but I thought I’d share with y’all what I wrote this week.

Joy
It stays with you always, hard times, and good times. This feeling inside won’t forsake you. Your happiness is for but a moment. Your sadness is a fleeting second. But this feeling, if found in the right place, is forever. You can only find true meaning of it through one Person. Jesus. He, in perfectness, died for you, the least of perfect. He, in His love for you, was bruised and whipped for you. Just knowing the King of Kings would hang on a cross for you should bring you unspeakable joy.

Are any of you participating in Five Minute Friday? If so I’d love to hear what you wrote :)

Happy weekend!

Spring…

I open my window to a chorus of birds chirping away their beautiful songs…

I look out the window and see trees blooming with flowers as white as snow…

The tiny daffodils are peeking out over the wet grass…
