As I come to this first stop in my prayer walk, I meet up with the reminder of the sacrifice you gifted into my life. JESUS. As I look over the valley I ponder the valleys of my life.
I realised that I have not always put your precious cross foremost in the picture of the pathway of my life. No wonder I feel so lost. Thank you for bringing me to this quiet place where I can meet with you and know you love me. Enough to let your Son die for me.
Looking back and looking forward
God I have so much to be grateful for. When I look back I see all the abundant blessings on my path and my heart is filled with memories of love. Reminders that you were always there. Your love is with me always.
Even though the road may look dark ahead and I may not know where it will lead me, I dare not question you my Lord. You will bring me past this turn in my life. And who knows what You have planned for me? I am so scared Lord.
Back to the cross
Luke 23:34 Father forgive them for they do not know what they do.
I do not need to be scared. Please forgive me Lord. Every time you bring me back to your cross. JESUS died for me so that I don't have to fear. As long as I stay at His cross I will find new flowers on my path. More blessings. Fill my heart with the peace of you cross.
The road ahead
Lord I don't need to know what shadows and sun the road ahead brings. As long as I know You are there.
Let me soar Lord. Let me give You thanks and praise. Give me joy in my heart. Give me hope, give me love. Give me forgiveness like your Son has shown us.
Psalms 92:1-2 It is good to give thanks to the Lord , And to sing praises to Your name, O Most High; To declare Your loving kindness in the morning, And Your faithfulness every night.
When You bring me to this T-junction in my path do you want me to walk on the wild side? Or do You want me to climb the stairway back to Your home? Lord, let me be lead by You.
Lord thank you for taking me on scenic side routes. Thank you for reminding me that even though the music got burnt in the fire, there is lots more music to be lived.
Out of our brokenness you create landscapes. The view from Your home is astounding. You are the bigger picture.
Your home is my refuge and my strength. I have been gone too long, oh Lord. You welcome me back in the coolness of Your sanctuary. I surrender to your peace.
There you are JESUS. SAVIOR. Broken for me.
As I leave to go on my way, You remind me that I have to look at the world through the image of Your Son's cross. There is no other way.
Let the bell ring
And finally, You call me to action. No longer can I be silent. I need to let Your bell ring. I have to tell the world of Your loving kindness. I have to live Your Love. That is what my prayer path is about.
Thank You for this prayer path Lord
