Lord, I just want to say thank you for everything. I have been blessed with so much but most of the time I have been neglecting you…I’m sorry. You know my heart’s desires Lord and I know, in You own perfect time…they will all come true. Continue to bless our plans and dreams Lord, be always at our side and guide us. Protect us and keep us safe. To you, lift up everything…big and small cos I know that you are God and nothing is impossible with you. I love you Lord and I will forever be grateful to you.
Just as I have brought this disaster on these people, so I am going to give them all the good things that I have promised. —Jeremiah 32:42
Lord, it’s getting more and more painful each day…I am in great pain now. Sometimes I feel like it’s easier for me to let go of him. But how can I fulfill my mission if I’m going to do that? I’m confused Lord…should I stay in this relationship or should I go out of it? This “don’t give up on him” keeps on popping up in my head and just this morning this “it’s too early to give up” keeps on echoing in my mind…
And then You led me into this very inspiring verse. Your words comfort me Lord. True enough, that even if I’m into so much pain right now…even if I’m struggling so much to make this relationship work and to fulfill the work that you have begun in me…even if sometimes I get confused and keep on asking You if I’m still doing the right thing…even if I keep on asking for Your assurance that I’m still on the right track…even if sometimes I would just like to give up because I felt that it would be easier…even if sometime I really don’t know what to do anymore…even if sometimes I doubt…You’re going to make me victorious. You are a faithful God who’s always true to His promises.
Sustain me Lord, be my hope and strength…
Be alert, stand firm in the faith, be brave, be strong. Do all your work in love. — 1Cor 16:13-14
Lord, you keep on telling me not to give up on him. I asked you to sustain and assure me that I am still on the right track. Is this really what you wanted me to do? I’ve lots of realizations these past few days and I believe that they are all your ways to mold me into a better person. Stand firm in the faith and do all my work in love. If this is really what you wanted me to do Lord, please give me the strength, the courage and determination to do it. I am weak Lord and I can be easily distracted…please sustain me. In Jesus’ name I pray…AMEN.
… that if you feel yourself floundering in the sea of life, try leaning back and floating. Let yourself be supported. Gaze into the beautiful sky and allow time for your spirit to be refreshed. Then when you are feeling stronger, simply choose a direction and start swimming.
Lord, I don’t know how to swim…but if you’d ask me to, I would do it for you coz I know, you’d do miracles for me to be able to do what you ask of me…Let me trust you more and more each day. Sustain me and show me you everlasting love and compassion. I know, you wanted me to realize a lot of things first before you finally give the desires of my heart. You allowed me to experience these things, you allowed me to struggle because you wanted me to learn and be a better me. Grant me the grace to understand your wisdom, Lord. Be my strength…be my everything. Amen.
Let not my faith in you be shaken Lord, let me not dwell on the hardships that I am experiencing but focus on your grace, always remind me of your faithfulness & never ending love. I have laid down all my plans and heart’s desire on you, be it done unto me whatever plans you may have.
The Lord himself will lead you and be with you. He will not fail you or abandon you, so do not lose courage or be afraid. — Deuteronomy 31:8
Your constant love is my guide; your faithfulness always leads me. — Psalms 26:3
Lord, your love for me is so precious and incomparable. I know that you’re going to direct me to the path where the abundance of your grace awaits me. Your love will lead me to the perfect direction of the life that you wanted me to have and your faithfulness will be my armor to win all the battles in life as I journey towards the life the you have prepared for me. Bless me Lord and all my plans and allow me to be a blessing to others as well. All these I pray in Jesus’ name. Amen.
The Lord your God is bringing you into a fertile land — a land that has rivers and springs, and underground streams gushing out into the valleys and hills; a land that produces wheat and barley, grapes, figs, pomegranates, olives, and honey. There you will never go hungry or ever be in need. Its rocks have iron in them, and from its hills you can mine copper. You will have all you want to eat, and you will give thanks to the Lord your God for the fertile land that he has given you. Make certain that you do not forget the Lord your God; do not fail to obey any of his laws that I am giving you today. — Deuteronomy 8:7-11
Thank you Lord, for allowing me to decide on my own. You have given me the free will to choose, and still, you’re there by my side, guiding me, giving me strength and encouragement. I will always remember what you’ve told me Lord. That no matter what choice I have made, you will not abandon me and will always be there by my side no matter what. I will leave for a while to a foreign land where my heart is leading me, but will come back to be a blessing to your people here in the Philippines and to serve them. Please always remind me that I must fulfill my mission for your greater glory. Equip me with all the things that I need Lord and allow me to be a better person as I take my first big step of moving out of my comfort zone. In a foreign land, a place where I have nothing…but YOU. In you my God, I entrust my future. I know that you will support me along the way until I succeed. May I never forget to give back and obey your laws Lord, as I succeed in my plans. Because everything that I have, all that I am came from you and are for you. Please always remind me of that Lord. All these I pray in Jesus’ name. Amen.
Lord, please let me know what to do. I have laid my plans before you but now it seems like I am having second thoughts. What am I gonna do now? Do I have to stick to the original plan of going to Singapore to find a job, live independently, serve Lingkod SG and evangelize Rodel or should I just stay here, serve Lingkod Makati and just wait on how things would unfold on their own? I am really confused now Lord, please enlighten my mind and grant me the wisdom to understand and to know your will. Yesterday, your message to me was clear. Stay, serve and be prosperous. And I said, YES Lord I will do your will. But why am I having doubts now on what I really want? My future is in your hands Lord, you know better than I do and you certainly know what’s best for me. Guide me and lead me to where you wanted me to be. These I pray in Jesus’ name. Amen.
Then they will be my people, and I will be their God. I will give them a single purpose in life: to honor me for all time, for their own good and the good of their descendants. I will make an eternal covenant with them. I will never stop doing good things for them, and I will make them fear me with all their heart, so that they will never turn away from me. I will take pleasure in doing good things for them, and I will establish them permanently in this land. — Jeremiah 32:30-41
Stay, serve and be prosperous. I will not leave you until I finished what I have promised you. Everything that I said, I will fulfill.
Lord, whatever it is that you want me to do, I will follow. If you want me to stay, I will. Grant me the wisdom to understand your will and make your plans clear to me. Please be with me always and lead me to the path that you want me to take. All these I pray in Jesus’ name. Amen.
