As for you, always be sober-minded, endure suffering, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry. (2 Timothy 4:5 ESV)
Today was a tough day for me. I was at risk at losing my vigilance and awareness that I have been reverently seeking. I watched, heavily burdened, as people I dearly love slipped through the cracks of my breaking heart.
I had to square my shoulders for others, and sank deep into the Presence of an all knowing God, and rested.
At this point, I’d said too much.. And was just weary. I reached out for prayer, and waited.
But God. Hallelujah!!! I could not have made it without Him today, and I used it all. Invested every talent, without His Grace, I would have missed it.
As I lay me down to sleep… I thank You, Lord my soul You’ll keep. If I should die before I wake… I pray, My God, Your Spirit leads their way. Into My Loving Savior’s arms, and until that day they meet no harm. My God so full of Love, Mercy, and Grace… Pursue them, Lord , until they seek Your Face In Jesus Name. Our Father who art in Heaven, hallowed be thy Name. Thy Kingdom Come, thy Will be done on earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our Daily Bread. Lord, Forgive us our sins, as we forgive those who sin against us. And, lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil. For Yours is the Kingdom, the Power, and the Glory! Forever and Ever. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
Thank You, Jesus, for allowing me to live it today, in spite of me.
