Thoughts

IS IT A JUDGEMENT OF SELF?

Dear Jesus,

Today is a new day. I’m thanking you for this day. You have woken me up to hear what you have to say to me.

I know you are in control. Help me to focus on the opportunities, privileges and blessings of today.

Im going to focus more on these positive things you have given to me: a functioning body, friends, family, health, good times and memories. Thank you most of all for your Love!

What was that judgement you talked about when you were rebuking the Pharisees and Sadducees. What is it? Is it a judgment of self? Of others or of situations? This is something you said that was important and a weightier matter of the law. Help me to learn and understand.

In your Name,

Amen

ALWAYS WITH HOPE

Dear Jesus,

Life is changing. 

You are teaching us to be patient not just with ourselves but with other people.

We live in an unperfect world, full of ups and downs, dissapointments, uncertainties, confusion, just plain bafflement.

Its so hard to look at things the way you see them.

The way the bible sees things.

The bible is out of this world and your asking us not to be like the world.

But to view things as you view them.

Always with hope.

In your Name,

Amen

YOUR THOUGHTS

Dear Jesus,

You know the thoughts that you think about us.

What you think about us never changes. 

Its not what you think Lord but its the fact that your thoughts about us are constant, certain and completely real.

You said that they are peaceful thoughts, thoughts that are looking out for our best and our good.

We are in safe hands. 

Knowing that helps me strive for good and desire only good for myself and others whom you think the best of.

Help us to think your thoughts.

In your Name,

Amen

THE WORDS THAT I SPEAK

Dear Jesus,

The words that we speak, make them ok to you.

Make them good words that you are happy with.

What we think about aswell, make all I think and dwell on be ok to you, not others.

But what yoi consider is ok.

You are our strength, you make us strong and you rescue us

In your Name,

Amen

COMPLETELY UNDERSTOOD

Dear Jesus,

Lord, I don’t know what to say right now.

I am lost for words.

I have a lot cluttering my mind but I don’t know how to put them into words.

I feel if I try to, it won’t come out right. 

I can imagine there are a lot of people who feel this way too.

You said that you know what we say even before we say them and that you talk to God on our behalf.

You say things that you have competely understood even when all we can do is groan and sigh.

That is so amazing.

Thank you for hearing my prayers.

In your Name,

Amen

THOUGHTS & PRACTISES

Dear Jesus,

I would love to make new friends. 

I would love to learn from others and develop long lasting meaningful friendships.

I understand that in order to do that I have to be prepared to let go of and unlearn the behaviours and thoughts that have stopped me from making the relationships I desire deep down.

Lord, what are the thoughts that I need to let go of and what thoughts and practises do I need to focus my energy on cultivating?

Thank you for what you have helped me do this far.

In your Name,

Amen

HAPPINESS

Dear Jesus,

What is happiness?

Is this a word that you created or is it man made?

Do you want us all to be happy or is there something else you want for us?

How do you define this term Lord? What do you think happiness is?

Lord teach us the way you see things.

In your Name,

Amen

OUR OWN VALUES

Dear Jesus,

What were the kind of things that you valued?

What did you think good thoughts about? 

What did you invest your energy focusing on just because it was so important to you and it made you happy?

Many of us are unclear about our own values and what they actually are?

Encourage us to really get to know what is important to us. What do we really feel passionate about and how this helps not just ourselves but others as well.

In your Name,

Amen

MEANING OF HAPPINESS

Dear Jesus,

What is happiness?

How do we get happiness? What do we need to do?

Is it a feeling? Is it something I can hold? Is it something I can’t see?

Why are some considered happy and others not?

Lord this world has so many definitions of happiness. Its hard to understand and determine whether I am really happy or not. 

Thats why I am asking you Lord, because you are wise and you know everything and you know the true meaning of happiness.

In your Name,

Amen

GOOD, CONSTRUCTIVE AND NOBLE THINGS

Dear Jesus,

Thank you for making things possible.

You have given us the gift of imagination and thought.

To be able to imagine something and bring it into existence is a miraculous thing.

A little bit of you in us.

But not as powerful as you.

Lord, encourage us to imagine good, constructive and noble things.

In your Name,

Amen

DECISIONS

Dear Jesus,

Life is full of decisions.

Big one and little ones. Experience has taught me which ones are the important ones.

Thank you. What I have learnt is invaluable and will carry me the rest of the way.

But there are decisions many of us have to make that we have little experience about.

The good thing is that you give us wisdom and the ability to think, reason and critique.

You guide us in ways that will get us problem solving and remembering.

Thank you.

In your Name,

Amen
