As I sit here on the the edge of my daughters bed here on the beautiful island of Guam, I am aware of your love for me and my family. The quietness of the night with a hint of Jim Brickman playing in the background has set the mood of reflection. I see peace in the eyes of my children. When they talk, I hear happiness and hope. When I ask my kids “who is the one person you love more than mom and dad?” I am proud to hear them say JESUS! You have given them everything they need in life. At such a young age, I can already see you working in them. All the blessings I have coming to me…lord, redirect them to my kids. They are wiser than I ever was or will be. I have wasted many opportunities that you have given me. I promise I will see to it that the kids continue to know where all their blessings come from and teach them to be bold to use it. In Jesus name amen.
Up at night with thoughts about promises and conversations I have had with the Lord. I feel like a 5 year old begging and pleading with his/her parent. “I want it now!” “I’ll behave as soon as I get it.” “This will be the last time I ask for something.” I hear these lines on a regular basis from my kids. I tell them to be patient and I know what is good for them. Now the shoe is on the other foot for I am saying these same phrases to my Heavenly Father. His answer are similar. Be patient and trust his timing. How much more does the Lord our God love me in comparison to my love for my kids?
God bless you all. Wait for his timing.
A nice reminder that we do not have to be perfect for our lord to use us to effect change. As this picture shows, he can and will use anyone!
I thank you lord that we can come to you for grace despite our flaws and defects. If i had to wait till i was perfect before i could approach you…well, you would be waiting for a lifetime. I ask that you use my life to help others while I am fortunate enough to walk on this earth. In Jesus Name, Amen.
Good morning from the beautiful island of Guam. God Bless!
