Good morning journey companion,
As I close this week, I am grateful for my sabbath. Yup my heart is filled with thanksgiving and praise. I am absolutely not where I want to be but I am grateful for where I am.
I often have to let go of my perfect person idea for myself and others. I have to remember that in our imperfections God’s glory is made perfect.
I let go of the idea or image of what I believe things should look like and how they should go. I commit myself to see people and situations as an opportunity to bring kindness, encouragement, peace, generosity, love and truth.
I accept I won’t always be who people want or need but I am exactly what God designed. I accept every friendship wont last an eternity I accept my friends wont always say things I want to hear I accept that my child won’t always want to be around me I accept whatever comes my way as a lesson to seek God’s plan.
I trust that God will use everything in my life to stretch me and grow me into His perfect idea of who I am.
I pray that today as we enter into God’s amazing grace and mercy we encounter everyone with an expectation that God is moving in them like He is moving in us. I pray that we take our time to get to know and understand when appropriate and let go when appropriate.
I pray that offense falls off of us as we begin to see like Jesus saw. As we lean into the Holy Spirit for guidance I pray we are leading with love, compassion, grace, and mercy. I pray that God increases in us as we stir up His gifts inside of us.
I pray God’s will in your life that is so infectious for others to also become children of God because you choose to be a beacon of God’s unconditional love for us. In Jesus mighty and holy name we pray amen.
