Many thoughts are tumbling around in my head this morning. Because of some changes in our family dynamics…due to our family moving away, and some other longstanding issues, my heart and soul are searching for God’s will and direction.
I believe that this is a time of “digesting” all that the Holy Spirit has revealed to me up to this point.
These intense feelings I am experiencing have confirmed the importance and calling to be of support to each other in our journey toward Christ and his ultimate will for his kingdom. The human struggles we each endure, whether physical, emotional or spiritual, are unique for each one of us. I believe, as Christians, we are called to edify and support each other through the entire journey….through the mountaintop experiences, and also the struggles, and plateaus.
Never to judge; always willing to lead, guide and share God’s love and truth with each other.
With all that is happening in our personal lives, culture, and the whole world, I am feeling the intense need to pray for the conversion of hearts, minds and souls. And that includes my own. I ask that the Lord continue to fill my heart and soul with His Holy Spirit, and I ask that I remain humble to learn the ways I need to grow.
Please instill in us pure hunger and thirst for your truth, love and grace. Help us to know you and your ways through your Holy Word. Help us to stay humble; always knowing that it is You who is working through us, not our own effort…but YOU. Help us to be open to your Holy Spirit, making us a channel of your love and peace to others.
We ask these things in the name of your precious son, Jesus. Amen
