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

Let Us not Forget

Dear Jesus,

Hearts are still in pain over the lives that have been lost over the past few weeks.

Even though it is in the past, it all has left a deep wound in the hearts of many people especially relatives, children and significant others.

People who are still tryng to heal, cope with life and come to terms with what happened.

No one talks about it anymore, no one is standing up anymore or protesting, complaining, shouting, crying, hurting.

Let us not forget about it Lord. Let us not become the crowd. Let us help those where help is needed.

And please Lord come through for those people who are still in pain. Grow them so that they become great victors and not victims. Grow them to make a solid impact on the world for the rest of their lives.

For you said that in our weaknesses you make us stronger. Although our trials are hard to bear, you help us to bear them.

Thank you.

In your Name,

Amen

Sinful addiction

Dear Jesus,

I have an addiction. It is a sinful addiction and I desperately need your help to come out of this.

No matter how much I try to justify my actions I know deep down your heart is breaking.

I feel controlled and imprisoned struggling to break free. 

I am confused and dont know what to do. Each time I feel more guilty and ashamed.

Please help me to stop.

In your Name,

Amen

In those Changes

Dear Jesus,

Remind us that change is good. Teach us the benefits of change whether it be good or bad change. 

Show us what we can do in those changes.

I don’t like change. It threatens my way of doing things and it makes me uncomfortable.

It means that I have to show a side of myself that I am completely confident about showing. It means that I will have to start soing something new that I am unfamiliar with.

But Lord, I know that in those moments is where we can really change into extraordinary people. Where we can learn new things about ourselves and the world around us.

In your Name,

Amen

So much in Life

Dear Jesus,
Thank you for a new day. A refreshing new day.

Thank you for the blessings of this weekend and the good memories that I know I can look forward to making again and again.

There is so much in life that we can be thankful for.

Even if it is only a small thing, it is something.

You said that in all things, all situations we should give thanks.

That tells me Lord that it is possible, even when we are in not so pleasant situations to give thanks.

Thank you.

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

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
