Overwhelmed and Lost

"An God I run into Your arms
Unashamed because of mercy
I'm overwhelmed, I'm overwhelmed by You" 

Here lately, I have found myself very lost, confused and overwhelmed... I'm striving so hard to hear His voice. Trying hard to quiet my thoughts to feel his guidance... I'm afraid to make a bad choice when it comes to my direction in life. I feel a strong pull to live my life for Him and Him only and live it alone. 

I feel beaten down right now, unloved by man... I realize that His love is all that really matters, but I also struggle with the fact that we were also made for companionship. In that area of life, my thoughts and dreams were completely shattered in my last marriage and is compounded with the failures of my two previous marriages that failed due to earthly struggles that involved selfishness, human weakness, society pressures and satan's pressures to live life for oneself instead of abiding by God's laws. 

I feel being led to live my life committed to only God. 

This morning's prayer

Father, I pray that You might give me a heart of wisdom. I pray that I will always make wise choices; and when two paths seem to be equal, I pray You will help me to trust You even as I make my decision. Give me a heart that is willing to obey You, to respond in faith to the wisdom You give me. 

I pray that I may have a heart of wisdom. Keep me from ungodly counsel that seems good, but which will, in the end, be destructive. Keep me from following the path of least resistance, and from friends who would lead me astray. Even as you teach me, that the wise path is often the most difficult path, but in the end, it's the most rewarding. Direct my paths, O Lord, for I am like a sheep who is prone to stray. Make me a lover of wisdom. 

In Jesus name, Amen

Like a trampled spring and a polluted well
Is a righteous man who gives way before the wicked. 
It is not good to eat much honey, 
Nor is it glory to search out one's own glory. 
Like a city that is broken into and without walls
Is a man who has no control over his spirit.

Joy Because of Family 

Jesus Christ is God's everything for man's total need. 
~ Richard Halvorsen 

Dear Father, thank You for Christ's victory 
over death. Your plan would not have been 
complete if Jesus had stayed in the grave. 
Thank You for Your power, Your love and the 
promise of eternal life with You! 

Joy Because of Family 

Family members are the people who know you best. They know your good points and your bad ones. You can't fool family members with fancy words or bluffs because they know the real you. After all, they live with you. Most people are more completely themselves when they are at home than anywhere else. 

Family members may make you crazy and frustrate you terribly, but when push comes to shove, you would do anything in the world for them and they would do the same for you. You may get angry at them, but you would never let anyone else say negative things about them! Family members love you no matter what and the memories you share with them are priceless. Having a family is a real gift from God. Family is precious because you are connected at the heart and you belong, for better or worse. There's a sense of security in that. 

Lord, thank you for my family!! I am truly blessed!

Morning Prayer 

God, it's so exciting to realize that the hard 
circumstances in my life are subject to change. 
Help me to keep on trusting You as 
You work out Your good purposes in my life. 
In Jesus' Name.

While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen; for the things which are seen are temporal, but the things which are not seen are eternal.
2 Corinthians 4:18

Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.
Hebrews 11:1

Morning Prayer


Be my Vision, 
my Hope, 
my Light, 
My Way. 

Be Thou My Vision

Be Thou my vision, O Lord of my heart.
Naught be all else to me, save that Thou art.
Be Thou my best thought, by day or by night;
Waking or sleeping, Thy presence my light.

Riches I heed not, nor vain empty praise,
Thou mine inheritance now and always.
Thou and Thou only, be first in my heart.
High King of heaven, my treasure Thou art.

Be Thou my wisdom and Thou my true Word,
I ever with Thee and Thou with me, Lord,
Thou my great Father, and through Thy true Son
Thou in me dwelling and I with Thee one.

High King of heaven, my victory won,
May I reach heaven’s joys, bright heaven’s sun!
Heart of my own heart, whatever befall
Still be my vision, O Ruler of all.
