Living On A Prayer…

living on a prayerHow I thank You, Dear Lord, for your words of hope, strength and great comfort..

“I cried out, I’m slipping!” and your unfailing love, O Lord, supported me.  When doubts filled my mind, your comfort gave me renewed hope and cheer.”

Psalm 94:18

Have you ever felt like that?

 Are you just holding on for another day?

  Maybe it’s emotional.. your tired, overwhelmed, burdened..

Maybe it’s relational.  Physical or financial…

Whatever it is, God sees You.  He knows you.  And He so cares about You..

Will you hand it over to Him?…

I picture this situation like a small child who is holding the most amazing round spiral old school lolly pop.. She is so happily holding on to it, eating it… enjoying every lick.  But her tummy is sick, and she is all sticky and when you try to take it from her she just cries.. She wants to just hold on to it… It’s comforting to have..

Our troubles can be like that.  We are used to them.  We have become accustomed to holding them, looking at them… eating up all of the worry and thoughts that come with them…

But God reaches out His hand of grace to grab them away, and we may pull our’s back… Our tummies may be sick, we feel stuck  and tired from all of the worry we have been eating up…

“I lift my eyes to You, to You whose throne is in heaven.  As the eyes of slaves look to the hand of their master, as the eyes of a maid looks to the hand of her mistress, so our eyes look to the Lord our God, til He shows us His mercy..”

Psalm 123: 1-2

  God knows your heart.  He knows your burdens and your cries..

He knows your mind, heart, and body need rest..

Rest in Him..

Dear Heavenly Father, How great is Your love and compassion for me.. my foot is slipping, my body aching.. How I come before You this new day, praying and seeking these words of comfort and hope over my heart and my day… Will you give me the strength to see beyond myself and set my eyes on Your beauty and power.. I love You. I need You.  I am handing over all of my heartache and worry to You… Into your loving hands of beauty and grace…

Please, Dear God, guide my day.. direct my path and help me to love other’s as You are loving me.

In Jesus, Holy and loving Name,

I pray,


Live in Love,


“Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever..”

Psalm 23:6
