"The ordinary acts we practice every day at home are of more importance to the soul than their simplicity might suggest."

Trust, fill and receive...



Father God, thank you that You are a God of fulfilled promises.
What You promise You will fulfill.
What You say comes to pass.
You have only good for us and never evil.

Lord, please fill the empty longing spaces inside of us as only You can, because only You know what we need. 
Empty us of self, of vain ambition, of selfish desires, of prideful, bitter or unforgiving hearts. Fill us more and more with You, Lord Jesus. More of you, less of us, until all we have is You. 

Set our thoughts on things above and place eternity on our hearts.

Bless us with a fresh revelation of what to let go and what to pursue. 
Show us, Lord, how to receive from You that which is best instead of lamenting not having the things we may want.

At Your feet and by Your Holy Spirit's direction, teach us about life and how to live righteously, that we may glorify You forever and be prepared to meet you in Glory.

In Christ we pray,
Amen

  4. You always seem to know just what I need to hear especially with this hurricane about to hit the area close to where I live on the Gulf. I hope everyone who reads this will say a big prayer for Florida. This one is worse than Houston's, not to say they are not suffering but we all thought it was going to hit the Atlantic side but it has changed and is not going for the Gulf side. Panic--no I need to do what they say on TV and trust that God will take care of us. Thank you.(robinsbusiness@hotmail.com)

It's always nice to receive feedback on a blog post, so *thank you* for taking time to comment!
I will try to reply via email unless you are a 'no reply blogger' which means you'll have to check for my reply in the comments. Of course, life is a rather hazardous activity, isn't it? So if I don't respond to your comment that's the reason why - life simply stepped in...
hugs
Jenny
