A Sunday Prayer

Today, God woke me up with an unhinged excitement for Him that I cannot explain. Half asleep, I hurried downstairs to my office with a sense of urgency. Yeah, that’s it. God is giving me a sense of urgency to praise Him to declare how great He is, to tell others what His joy feels like. Usually, I grab my Bible first and start reading, but today, He filled with with so much indescribable joy that I want to praise Him with it and For it! I feel His love as a Father to a child so strongly. Here is a simple prayer from my heart to God’s. I hope you all have a wonderful Sunday. May He fill Your hearts with joy You cannot contain, EVEN IF…No matter what, although trials exist, we can praise Him.

Thank You, Lord for another day to praise You! Waking up with You on my mind first thing each day is awesome and motivating!…thank You for getting through to me and showing me my selfishness and pride and how I was building little for Your Kingdom, but much for my own. If I do nothing else right in this life, guide me to surrender all I can to You, more than I have before. Time is limited and Your Son will come back for us. Help me to get this right, to bring people with me. It makes me so sad that I am just now truly getting the depth of what You expect from me and the confidence that You indeed can accomplish anything if I give my ALL to You. Even if I am scared. What if people think I am nuts? What if I mess up with Your plan? What if, what if, what if…Take my “what ifs” away; remove them and firm up my heart to proclaim, “Even if”

Even if I feel out of my comfort zone, even if the enemy attacks, even if I look obsessed with You, even if I grab that pride back, even if I am uncomfortable or scared about what You would have me do, even then… Chisel me every day so I look less like me and more like You, even if it hurts or is scary. I’ve never told You that before, You know, that You can make me suffer. I am giving You permission to use me however You want. You have placed a desire in me that I don’t understand but I cannot ignore. All I want for Christmas is You. What a precious gift You are to me! Here goes this nut for You…

I will extol the LORD at all times; his praise will always be on my lips. (always ready to give Him credit)

My soul will boast in the LORD; let the afflicted hear and rejoice. (I will brag on no one but God)

Glorify the LORD with me; let us exalt his name together. (This is a team effort with my siblings in Christ)

I sought the LORD, and he answered me; he delivered me from all my fears. (He answers and delivers always)

Those who look to him are radiant; their faces are never covered with shame. (He gives me a shiny joy!)

This poor man called, and the LORD heard him; he saved him out of all his troubles. (God has compassion)

The angel of the LORD encamps around those who fear him, and he delivers them. (Angels are protectors too)

Taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the man who takes refuge in him.(Try God. He is good!)

Fear the LORD, you his saints, for those who fear him lack nothing. (Total respect to the Lord. He supplies every need.)

Psalm 34:1-9 NIV

Love and prayers to all my brothers and sisters in Christ,

Just a servant of the Lord,

Tina
