Bring Me to Praise

Reflection
Inspection of the mind, heart, and soul

Setting a direction
Giving forth affection
More than moving towards a goal

It's intention
It's growth

Reflect then inspect then move forward with intent
Grow in maturity

Put away immaturity and impurity
Go forth in wisdom and understanding

Exercise Time!

I do enjoy a look-back… a good pondering…

I look back at these last few years; more recently, these last few weeks in particular and I dare say that the hard times I had to face have been to me a blessing… a reset… a pause.

If you flipped through my journal you might see: “Burdened. Exhausted. Tired. Low Pleasantness. Low energy. Sad. Weary. Worn. ” You see, as a parent I am “on” 24/7. I usually get maybe 1-5 minutes to myself, if I can make it. I know this, you don’t have to be a parent to have these kind of journal entries, or thoughts… you just have to be a person!

I can tell you that this place of weariness could not be seen it as a blessing while in the “thick of it” but when I read in the book of James in the Bible, I’m told to count it all joy when I face trials!!

My cries have been heard … Psalm 34:4 says “I sought the Lord, and he answered me. He delivered me from all my fears.” Yes, these last few weeks have held many fears… many unrealistic yet so real.

Many times when the hardships stack and the weights are the heaviest, muscles are being formed.

When I am facing storms, I form new plans and processes…build resilience and remembrance.

Let’s enter into a time of remembrance this Easter 2021 Season…

Praise…

Start your time with praise and talking to God. Tell him about how grateful you are that he the God that is… Able, Almighty, All-knowing, All-powerful, Beautiful, Creator, Deliverer, Divine, Exalted, Enthroned, Faithful, Father, Good, Glorious, Holy, Host of Heaven’s Armies…

My prayer for you today: Lord, I pray that we would be a people renewed with life.

May we renewed this Easter Season. For friends who have not entered into life with Christ, I pray for my friend reading today. Restore right relationship and let me receive forgiveness of sins and a place among God’s family. God, I have heard and read: John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son that whoever believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.

God, I admit that I am a sinner in need of a Savior. I believe on Jesus’ name that he is the Way, Truth and the Life. I want new life this day. I am willing. Lord, I trust you with my life. I confess my sins, turn from them and receive new life in Jesus today. Amen!

Let me know if you prayed this prayer!!

Welcome to God’s family! (it’s that simple and you may not feel anything–it’s not necessarily an emotional experience…just an experience and an understanding that you’ve prayed the prayer and now you’re part of God’s family. Nothing can take his love from you, ever!)

Life can be full of hope and abundance; I am certain we can find it because the life we want and desire: Jesus came to give us life and we can have it abundantly! A little about me: I am a wife, first. Next, I am a mama to five children; my husband and I have four daughters and son! I love to connect and talk about things of God and look for beauty in life.
