You really inspire me to be strong in faith and to continue my growth and walk.
Father, I thank You so very much for my dear friends here. Lord, I remember the day You lead me to this site. Lord, I was in California with my now ex-inlaws. My divorce was quickly approaching. I was weak and I was struggling to see the light. Lord, I see now. I see the movement YOU were making in my life. I see how much You comforted me and loved me. Lord, I was not and am not worthy, yet You love me and never forsake me. Lord, I want to be a testament to Your love, mercy, and grace. I do struggle and I hurt. I am wiping tears of sorrow from my face right now, but Lord, I KNOW You are right here with me. I ask that I am able to hear Your message to me. I need wisdom and guidance. Lord, I love M so very much and I feel like this story is not over, but I don't want to be a fool. Lord, please reveal to me if I should close this door and let me see it clearly. Give me affirmation I cannot deny. I know I need to wait for You. I know it is in Your time. So Lord, I am waiting. I am waiting on You. Lord, I love You so very much and now You have something great in store for me.
Lord, I pray for M today. I ask that his sermon today reached his congregation the way You intended and that their hearts were open. I ask that You be with M as he plans his two mission trips and provide financial favor for the groups going. Lord, M has been a blessing in my life and I thank You; but I hurt so badly knowing he is gone, but not knowing if it is permanent. I don't know how to grieve. Do I let completely go? Lord, I need to know, and You know I will do Your will. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.
