Strength For Today
Fill our days with Your purpose.
“The LORD will fulfill his purpose for me; your love, O LORD, endures forever— do not abandon the works of your hands.”- Psalm 138:8 (today's daily bible verse, biblegateway.com)
His hands crafted me inside my mother's womb.
He has created a gift in me that I WILL use for His purpose.
I can't be held down by silly lies by the Father of Lies.
I refuse to believe when he tells me I'm not good enough.
So what if I'm not, God has given me the ability to learn, and He'll teach me the right way, and will love me through any snags along the way.
Lord, give me strength to continue in what I do not know, help me to move past the pain of learning about this world that so easily set you aside. Stay close beside me as I walk through the darkness of selfish men and decisions.
Be the Light on my path.
Help these people reading this post know You love them with an everlasting love and will fight with them and for them. You are not a god waiting for us to mess up, judging our faults and failures.
You are a God who is with us on the battlefield, standing beside us, in us, and for us. You are the God who suffers with your children when they lose a parent, go through tragedy, or other hardships this broken world offers. You are the One who is always praying for us...
"26In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express. 27And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints in accordance with God's will." Romans 8:26-27
