If it is your Will

Dear Jesus, 

There is something that I really want so much.

I think its a good thing. But I know that not everything that is good is actually good for us.

We are all so different and we handle things in different ways.

But, nevertheless, you know us better than we know ourselves.

So, lord, I would love to have children and invest all my time in my children bringing them up, teaching them and caring for them and just generally looking after them.

There is so much that I need to learn now before I get to that stage. Before you see fit to bless me with the privilege of having children.

If it is your will.

In your Name,

Amen

Back to that place

Dear Jesus,

I woke up this morning and opened my devotional to spend time with you.

Thank you for these opportunities to spend time with you.

Thank you for encouraging us time and time again to spend time with you.

For offering the resources and giving us that push that we all need.

Its not easy in this fast paced world. 

Everyone demands your time and energy on things that don’t really matter in the long run, not for eternity.

Expectations are high and committments are much.

But don’t ever stop Lord, pulling at our minds, telling us to spend time with you.

Even when we are not, convict us more and more and help us so that we can get back to that place

In your Name,

Amen

Temptations

Dear jesus,

I haven’t been through anything that pushes me too much to my limit.

And through everything, you have given me the strength to handle it and bear it.

You said that through our temptations you would provide a way of escape that we would all be able to bear our temptations.

This gives me alot of peace of mind and encourages me that you are looking after us and you know us so well.

In your Name,

Amen

Everything that you are

Dear Jesus,

Tank you for blessing me with my children.

Thank you for giving me the responsibility to be an educator and a carer to my children.

Its not easy, it is hard work. But it is also so challenging and rewarding in so many ways.

I get to mould my children and teach them what you’ve taught me. I get to see you in my children and everything that you are and that is beautiful.

In your Name,

Amen

Well & Healthy

Dear Jesus,

Thabk you for the successfuloperation yesterday that (name) went through.

He/she is recovering now but they need lots of rest. 

Please encourage him/her to rest. Place people in her way that will do things for her that will allow him/her to rest and get well soon.

When you were here you healed many people and you encouraged people to rest and recover. 

I believe you do that for us today through the poeple who specialise in making people well and healthy.

Thank you.

In your Name,

Amen

A Beautiful Thing

Dear Jesus,

Thank you for answering our prayers.

Thank you for hearing, listening and understanding. Thank you for your support.

You have helped and are still helping me and (name) reconcile. Through this I have had to practise patience and humility.

But most of all I have experienced peace and that is a beautiful thing.

Thank you.

In your Name,

Amen

You can always be trusted

Dear Jesus,

You are so worthy to be given all the praises.

No-one else should be given that honour except for you, not me, not anyone.

You provide our every need, you are always willing to listen in on to us. You are always available to us.

Nothing we do separates your living care from us because you are a good friend.

I find it very hard to trust people and to trust wisely. Its an art I am learning to use sensibly. 

I understand that not everyone can be trusted and sometimes that is hard to understand. And likewise I am learning there are some people that I can put my confidence in and that is also hard to put into practise.

But help us all to know that you can always be trusted.

In your Name,

Amen
