IMG00005-20110508-1612"But as for me, I watch in hope for the Lord, I wait for God my Savior; my God will hear me." (Micah 7:7)

It is one thing that no one else believes... It is something else to hear of how things have completely fallen apart and there's no hope, but what do you say? What is going on inside of you?

It does not matter so much what others are saying, but what you say and feel is key. Do you wait on God? Do you see God as bigger than your trials? Are you hopeful that Jesus will hear you and that He wants to heal you?

Thought for the day: Hope on God. Don't you dare give up looking to God.

Prayer: Jesus!

hug thumb"Though he slay me, yet will I hope in him..." (Job 13:15)

I won't stop clinging to You Jesus because I know that my life is in Your hands. I would rather fall into Your hands than be right in the eyes of the world. No matter what is going on around me, I won't leave You.

I'm so wrong and cast out; in fact I think the "noble" thing to do would be to let go of You and move aside, but God I can't let You go. I won't stop believing. Do with me as You see best. For I know and trust in Your great love for me. You will relent. You will make me over again. You will restore me and put me high upon a rock.

Thought for the day: Jesus is the Rock. I will not give up on God. Be still oh my heart and trust in Him with renewed faith and vision. I will not give up on God. I will not give up on myself for I am the works of Jesus' hands.

Prayer: Jesus!

children of_ecuador“Did I ask you for a son, my lord?” she said. “Didn’t I tell you, ‘Don’t raise my hopes’?” (2 Kings 4:28)

Dare to raise your hopes and expectations to God. Believe again. Stand up with childlike faith and raise your hopes.

The blessings of the LORD bring no sorrow with it. God is able to sustain. God can renew. God can make you over again.

Don't lose faith when your faith is tested. Jesus knows what you need. He knows the son, child, marriage, finances, friend, joy, break, health and miracle you need. 

Thought for the day: Believe.

Prayer: LORD help me raise my hopes when it comes to You, knowing my deepest secrets and desires. Teach me to follow whole heartedly after You. Let me stretch my parameters of my dreams and expectations to You knowing that You are a good God. Oh God, make me over again. Heal my faith, heal my heart, do me over so that I can trust You like I have never done before. Amen.

be with_me_2“But the angel said to her, ‘Do not be afraid, Mary; you have found favor with God.’” (Luke 1:30)

Do not be afraid. Things may look like they are falling apart. Things may be happening to your body that feel like they are beyond your control. It may seem like there is no end in sight and you don’t know. Though mountains crumble, though you may not know what will happen in the next breath, keep on keeping on. You have found favor with God.

Your family may be upset over that pregnancy. Your fiancé may not be understanding right now. No one may believe you or be in your corner. Perhaps there is no prayer buddy or help. Chin up! Do not be afraid. I know there may be unknowns and scare mongrels all around you, but you have found favor with God. Do not fear.

Thought for the day: Keep your eyes on God.

Prayer: Jesus, may I find favor with You. In Your Name I pray. Amen.
