Continual Growth

Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank You for not leaving me where I was, continue to show Your Word true in my life. Lord, You know I am a defender. I defend my position without fail, this has been my life and now I find myself tired. I am tired of defending myself, my existence, my presence, my words, where I stand, where I sit, where my eyes may stop even though there is no intent in mind, people question my pause though it is just my mind has began to wander. My strength has been exhausted, even when the words form in my mind, my mouth is too tired to speak. Forgive me Lord for relying on my own self because You said that You will uphold me. Your Word says that You will give power to the weak and strength to the powerless, well Your child is calling upon You Lord. I need You now! The devil will have me stumble and fall in my weariness but let me rest in You. Let me fall into Your arms. You promised that You would fight my battles. Well Lord, I cannot defeat the devil that has slithered into the cracks of my life, only You can. Be my defender!

In the name of Jesus I pray,


Isaiah 40:29 NLT

You need to know me? I am an old youth. Late to grow. Yet grateful of the time given by the Lord. Under His watchful eye, I am redirected, chastened, and chided. My heart is fragile, broken, and a work in progress. The Lord delicately puts me together as if mending glass. My pieces are not visibly shown. Hurt words leave my mouth, the sharp edges of my broken glass; though my heart speaks a different beat. A common factor in our time. My ways have sent me astray from the Lord’s path. I am no different than you. The Lord uses His timetable, methods, and avenues to lead us back to Him…if we will listen. Heavenly Father, Open my ears to hear Your gentle voice. Soften my heart so that I will heed Your words. Guide my feet so that I may walk in line with Your will. In the name of Jesus I pray, Amen! PhotoCredit:
