We Feel the Same

Dear Jesus,

It is amazing how much we as humans can take.

This world is so full of heartache, pain, evil and so much negativity, yet there are souls that endure and some how survive.

I think this is a side to humans that you created Lord. A beautiful side. To remain strong and resilient in the face of adversity.

To grow and do positive things while experiencing great pain.

You said that there is nothing that we will experience that many others have not experienced. Although different scenarios, we feel the same.

But you also said that even though this is, you would help us get through these things , so that we can endure and bear them.

Thank you for being that side of us Lord.

In your Name,

Amen

Taking Risks

Dear Jesus,

Taking risks is never an easy task.

Risks means losing, letting go, stepping into unfamiliarity .

But you have shown me in life that taking risks allows us to grow and thrive. 

To learn and become different people to what we were before.

Who wants to stay the same? Help us to develop that taste to take calculated and good risks.

You took a risk. You died for us. For people who would in the end reject you or accept and it is changing the world.

In your Name,

Amen

Outlook

Dear Jesus,

Life is so full of dissapointments at the least expected times.

And it is hard to handle these dissapointments.

Its hard to exercise the patience needed to weather these dissapoitnments.

Support us to learn that regardless of what life throws at us we are still alive, life is still beautiful and we have the power to  change our outlook.

In your Name,

Amen

 

Empowering

Dear Jesus,

I am grateful for the opportunities you put in my way to meet new people and come out of my comfort zone.

Its one thing being presented with the chance but its a whole different story to experience those opportunities.

Lord we need your strength to handle what you give to us in the best way we can.

To get out what is good for us and help us grow into honourable people.

Continue to inspire us to examine and focus on what is empowering.

In your Name,

Amen

To Become Changed

Dear Jesus,

Thank you for bringing me through another week.

At times its been very difficult to handle. I have nearly lost my cool with people.

I have been left confused as to why people choose to act the way they do.

But Lord, I realise that that is none of my concern, that is none of my business.

I just want to live the life you have given me in the best way.

To become changed each and every day.

In your Name,

Amen

That Family Feeling

Dear Jesus,

Thank you for the people you bring into our lives to inspire us, teach us and care for us.

It is hard to create that family feeling with people we do not know.

Because in this world we are so used to keeping to ourselves and staying with our own cliques.

But a lot of lifes learning and eye openers come from discovering the experiences of others and getting to know what makes us different.

Thank you that this privilege is open to every single one of ys regardless of where we are in our lives.

In your Name,

Amen

Good Work in Us

Dear Jesus,

This year you want to do so many new things with us.

You are constantly wanting to do many new things in us, for us and with us.

That is your speciality.

That is what you do best.

Please give us that kind of strength that will welcome anything that helps us to grow from the persons that we are right now.

You have bought us a long way and all of our journeys are unique.

You said that you jave started a good work in us and that you will continue that good work until you come back to take us home.

In your Name,

Amen
