“If opportunity doesn’t knock, build a door.” Milton Berle
Love. Please, please, please love. Otherwise, you are dead.
O LORD, God of heaven and earth, ruler of all creation, I praise you for your wisdom and creativity. I praise you for your mercy and righteousness. I praise you because you alone are worthy of my praise. O LORD, you alone can bring me full salvation. Please shine your face upon me. Please make your presence known in my life.
Almighty God. I long for the day that I get to see Jesus face to face coming with the angels in power. Until that time, fasten my heart in hope to the glory Jesus will share with me on that day, and please empower me to live as one who knows that victory is mine in Jesus.
Dear Heavenly Father, I honor you as God Almighty. I appreciate you for all your kindness and blessings lavished upon me. I love you because you first loved me in Jesus. My heart’s desire today is to demonstrate my love for you in all I do, and love and say.
“Do not fear, for I am with you; Do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” Isaiah 41:10 Thank you, Lord, for this verse.
Every day is new. A chance to begin again. To start over. To continue on your path to greatness. God grants you a life of abundance. See it as that. Just breathing is life! Cherish it. And DON’T TAKE IT FOR GRANTED!
Dear Father, you have blessed me with so many wonderful blessings. I thank you for each and every one of them. At the same time, I do long to be brought into your presence in glory as your child. The pain and heartache of the world, the fragility of my body, and my frustration with my own vulnerability to sin keep me longing for the day that your Son returns in glory. Until that day help me as I try to be your holy child.
Forgive me, Heavenly Father, for the times that I have lost my sense of urgency to live for Jesus. Use the Holy Spirit within me to arouse my passions to serve him with my eyes wide open and heart set on heavenly things. I know you can, and will do more than I ask or imagine, but please, awaken me to dream great dreams and imagine great things for your glory.
Thank you, Father, for giving me a window to your heart through the life and ministry of Jesus. Please bless me as I seek to know you better by knowing, understanding, and following Jesus more passionately.
Please bless my family with insight and illumination about You and Your glory. Please reveal yourself to them as You did with me.
