Guidance

…sharper than any two edged sword

Dear Jesus,

Thank you for your guidance, your inspiration and the power you have given me in your word to be strong.

You said that your word is quick and powerful and sharper than any two edged sword.

You examine my thoughts and my intentions.

Guide me into your light, correct me, teach me and transform me so that I can be closer to you and be like you to those you love so much.

If you cannot provide the answers or the solutions, please stay with me through everything.

In your Name,

Amen


 

 

THE PERSON YOU DESIRE ME TO BE

Dear Jesus,

Thank you for relaxing my thoughts and my worries with the knowledge that you love me.

We don’t have to worry. You have taken care of tomorrow and everything else that comes with it.

Even if things don’t go to plan I know your still in control. Helping me to learn good things that will shape me into the person you desire me to be.

You have designed the opportunities for us. You give us the desires of our hearts so guide and influence the choices that we make.

In your Name,

Amen


 

 

BEING WISE IS A WAY OF LIFE

Dear Jesus,

All the honour, time and energy belongs to you.

I am grateful for what you have done, what you are doing and most of all for what you will do.

You said that being wise is a way of life, does that mean that every choice and every decision I make requires wisdom? Why lord?

Wisdom comes from you and I am asking that you will give me wisdom in my daily tasks as the keeper of my home.

Do the same for others who desire wisdom to help with all their different duties and circumstances in life.

In your Name,

Amen


 

 

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Dear Jesus,

Happy New Year!

Its a brand new year of new lessons, new experiences and new starts.

Thank you for what you have given to us in 2014. You have prepared us well for 2015.

We are not the same.

You said that the kingdom of heaven is like a little mustard seed that is planted and grows into a great tree where birds come to stay.

Thank you that you see us as just like that tree, changing, growing and becoming strong.

To be people of provision, safety and rest.

That is my desire this year, to change and grow like the kingdom of heaven.

In your Name,

Amen


 

 

THE REWARDS ARE LASTING

Dear Jesus,

I know your with us.

All I can do is thank you, because you have and are doing so much.

You value us, you love us, you honour us.

I should offer you the same attitude and not waste it wallowing and dwelling on problems and self pity.

Everyday you make it clear that you have great desires, great plans, great intentions for us.

You are always hopeful and strong and you know exactly how to deal with every situation practically and positively.

I want to learn this from you. I want to be just like you.

I know the journey is long and rough at times but the rewards are lasting.

In your Name,

Amen

TO DO WHAT YOU SAY

Dear Jesus,

Your so strong, wise and knowledgable.

You know how to do everything right.

I admire this about you.

You know what the beautiful thing is, is that there is always something to admire in someone else.

Something good.

You are so practical as well. You make life liveable.

You give us all advice to put things into practise.

You help us not just to hear what you say but also to do what you say.

Thank you.

In your Name,

Amen

LESSONS

Dear Jesus,

Its the beginning of a new week.

Time to meet the challenges and activities of the week.

Some of us have to go to work, some of us have to go to school, some of us have other various weekly duties.

I don’t know whats going to happen this week.

But whatever does happen give us the wisdom to notice and understand the lessons that are being presented to us.

We are all different Lord, we all have different things we need to learn.

I am grateful that you have us all right where we need to be to learn those lessons.

In your Name,

Amen

DREAMS

Dear Jesus,

I have been dreaming a lot lately.

Many of my dreams I remember. Why am I dreaming so much Lord. Why do we dream at all?

Are dreams supposed to tell us something?

Lord, I know you have the answers to these questions because you are the creator of human beings and you understand how our bodies and minds work.

You gave dreams and visions to people in history to communicate with them.

You gave dreams to Joseph. You helped him discover his purpose in life through his dreams. You gave dreams to other people to communicate danger, warnings and prophecies.

Where can I go to find these answers?

In your Name,

Amen

CLOSEST FRIEND

Dear Jesus,

You give great advice and your a great counsellor.

I really believe that you work through the counsellors today to support us and help us find solutions to our problems.

Thank you so much.

You’ve helped me work through so many obstacles and challenges in my past and your still doing it for me now.

You are my closest friend.
In your Name,

Amen

WHAT AM I TO DO?

Dear Jesus,

So many changes can happen in such a short space of time.

Nothing is guaranteed. Nothing is certain. We make plans and schedule this and that and feel this way and that way. 

But none of these things are certain to last.

Everything changes.

And we are forced to get used to another way.
Honestly Lord, what am I to do in this situation? 
In your Name,

Amen

TEACH ME HOW TO PRAY

Dear Jesus,

When you were here you advised the disciples to pray in a certain way.

You talked about how important it is to talk to God and ask him for what we need. 

To always go to him first about everything. 

Lord forgive me. I have neglected you and pushed you aside. I haven’t acknowleged you as Lord of my life. 

Please teach me how to pray.

In your Name,

Amen

IN 2015

Dear Jesus,

Its a brand new year. Wow. That is incredible.

Newness. I know you are an expert at making new things. 

So much has happened in 2015. Good and bad.

But through it all there has been many lessons that have been learnt and others we may still be learning.

But thats ok. Life is a process full of lessons. 

Thank you for being with us every step of the way and for being so patient and loving towards us. 

In your Name,

Amen

WHAT NEXT LORD?

Dear Jesus,

As the years go by we are getting older, we are gaining more knowledge about the world.We are learning what its like and how to relate to others.

It sure is a journey. A whirlwind journey full of events.

But thank you Lord, for blessing us with life, strength and your grace in our lives as we live them.

What next Lord?

In your Name,

Amen

CHANGE FOR THE BETTER

Dear Jesus,

There are many of us who are in situations that we just don’t like.

We feel miserable. Stuck. Helpless and wanting a change so despatetly.

I really believe these are desires that are natural to have and its ok to feel them.

But Lord, I know that you can help us. Because you are pur helper and you are in control.

Lord, help us to make steps towards change for the better.

In your Name, 

Amen

SAFEST WAY

Dear Jesus,

I’ve been hurt. I’ve been used and cut off with no explanation. 

And I don’t really know how to handle this properly. Better yet Lord, I dont know if I’m coping with it well.

So many of us have experienced this atleast once in our lives. 

But Lord, I’m so grateful that I have you in my life to encourage me and teach me and show me the right way to go. 

I don’t really fully understand the right way to go and I wander off from your way of doing things. 

Keep me grounded in you all the time. Never losing sight of you. Because I know thats the safest way for us all to be.

In your Name,

Amen

NAVIGATE THROUGH

Dear Jesus,

I just wanted to say nothing more than thank you.

Thank you for a new day. Thank you for this new week. Thank you for opening up the doors to take action and make hard but important decisions.

This week I trust that you will help me to navigate through.

In your Name,

Amen

STRONG PEOPLE FOR YOU

Dear Jesus,

I thank you for the guides and mentors that you have given me the privilege to meet.

They have wisdom and inspiration that comes from you.

They have helped to shape the person I am today. 

Yes, you are Lord and everything is under your control even our lives. 

But I strongly believe that embracing you as Lord over our lives means to also accept the good assistance that is available to us to help us become strong people for you.

Save us from presumption and putting ourselves into situations that only seek to hinder us.

In your Name,

Amen
