Thats the Difference

Dear Jesus,

You are awesome. You are a good friend.

I am very lucky to know you. Its a privilege. 

At least I am very lucky to have known you, because there is so much more to learn about you.

Whatever good has come out of this life, I cannot help but say its because of you and not me.

Thats the difference.

In your Name,

Amen

Responsibility

Dear Jesus,

What areas in your life did you have responsibility?

How did you handle your role of responsibility?

I don’t like responsibility. I would rather run away from my responsibilities than face it and own up to my responsibilities. 

But Lord, I know its a sign and a quality that you desire in all of us. 

Its not just what you desire but its also a part of who you are. 

Its good. Its noble. Its righteous.

Help me to learn what this means. Help me to be more responsible.

In your Name,

Amen

Family

Dear Jesus,

Thank you for creating family.

Its a little bit of heaven on earth for sure.

To be able to call strangers family and treat them the same way we do our own families is a blessing straight from you.

Thank you for own families, who take care of us, who are so generous and provide for us the way that you do. 

I want to see others as family dispite the painful experiences I have.

Help us not to lose that passion and desire.

In your Name,

Amen

De-Clutter

Dear Jesus, 

I read that having less stuff is nessecary to our growth.

Clearing out all the clutter, all the things that are just un-important and don’t really have that much value.

Lord, Im learning that less stuff doesn’t just mean less material things but all things, anything that is not bringing value and meaning into our lives.

Thank you for helping me to de-clutter and please continue to help us in that process.

In your Name,

Amen

The Answers

Dear Jesus,

We have problems. We have questions. We have issues. 

I am learning through it all that although having the answers is good.

It is even better to do what it takes to get to those answers.

Sometimes we don’t get the answers we are looking for. 

But Lord help us never to stop searching, questioning, reflecting, learning and creating.

In your Name,

Amen

When you were working

Dear Jesus,

How did you manage the money you earned when you were working as a carpenter?

Did you save it? Did you give it to your family? What did you buy? What didn’t you buy?

There is something I’d really like to buy. I think its good and it is valuable, it is lovely and it is of good estimation.

Do you think so too?

In your Name,

Amen

You Are Truely Good

Dear Jesus,

In your word it tells us a little about what is important to you.

Alittle bit about your values, the kind of things you hate and what you stand for. 

Lord, I don’t want to take you for granted. 

And I don’t want to take the credit for what you do and the kind of person you are.

Lord, help us to appreciate you and admire you.

Because you are truely good.

In your Name,

Amen
