Psalm 139:1

A prayer:

Lord you search me and you know me. You know all about me. There is nothing that I do or don’t do that you don’t know about. You know the thoughts I think and the words that I’m going to speak before I even say it. I am truly amazed at this.

Lord, I ask for you help. For years I wanted to know just your power, so that I could see the miracles. Please forgive me. Lord I now want to know the person of the Holy Spirit. Lord, please help me to know your spirit as a person so that you can envelop all of me.

Lord, help my unbelief in the area of being physically and spiritually whole. May my heart be turned so that it comes after you. Soften the places of my heart that have been hardened. Wash away fear, doubt, or anything that is unhealthy and let the Holy Spirit come and reside in my heart today and forever.

Let your ways be my ways. May I truly follow you. Graft me into the branch so that I may stay joined to you and that your teaching will become apart of me. Lord, thank you for hearing my prayers.

In Jesus Name, Amen.

Looking Back

20161030_183754.png

I will admit that sometimes prompts help me get out of a writing funk. This prompt was from back in July but thought I would give it a shot. I have enjoyed following Free Flow Friday

As we move forward in life it is always good to pause to take a look at where we are coming from. Looking back should be a part of our everyday life. It’s in the looking back that we remember just how far we have come and to where it is we would like to go. Looking back enables us to reconsider the steps we have taken and the steps that we need to take. Sometimes we spend way to much time looking back to the point that it becomes a stumbling block to us and our future. You see we can never gain that which we have lost in looking back. It is only by moving forward can we find the hope that we need to move into the future. So if you find yourself stuck in looking back remember that you are not the same person you use to be back then and you probably wont be the same person that you are today in the future. Our life is made up of the past, the present and the future. If we learn to live in the present we can enjoy both our past and the upcoming future. So when we are looking back lets make sure that it is just to visit and not to take up residence.
