Only You can fill this void, only You can calm the quaking. 

Only You can help me find the purpose for which You made me. 

I seek without finding a way to express all the thoughts that are building inside that can’t mesh a hundred ideas all waiting to be found, in the mean time I feel like all the good ideas have already been used and anything that I could think of would fall away like only so much ruble. 

I want so badly to have an effect, to war against the machine with some semblance of success. I guess the question still remains…too who’s definition of success do I long to achieve is it wealth and popularity I seek, well no not entirely…I want to change lives to plant seeds and see the spirit of God move strongly through my ramblings but at the same time I would not mind if in the process we were granted some meager allowance. I would love to have more so that I could give more, I want to leave an inheritance…a legacy. Where do I even begin? How do I give these ideas wings so that they might unfurl and take flight? I am sure I’m not the only one asking. But alone in the process…guess I better go back to prayer. Lord please guide me. Don’t let me walk out of step…in accordance to Your grand design where things align and in glorious splendor lights shine brightly rendering all dark things to pass…reveal the way to me, that I might succeed in whatever You may ask. In Jesus Name, Amen.

Lord, guide me as I write tonight. 

I have to serve You out of the overflow, out of the well if you will. I need to be full first though and so I read Your word…I search to know You deeply, I look to seek Your face. I think of all who have come before me, patriarchs of amazing faith. I can learn so much about You by studying their faith, all the ways that You supplied for them, guided them, and gave them a better place. I know this is Your heart for us, Your children, You want to give us good. I thank You for Your love for me and the way You show me daily that You have a plan for me. One that is for my good and not to bring me ruin, I trust You know whats best even when the road ahead is hard because I know You are just building my character, You are making me strong. I will persevere, I will finish the race and it will all be for You Lord and because of Your amazing grace. See, You are the one that empowers me, You guide me and give me peace, You are the glue that binds me and holds me to my place. You never will forsake me and You came to take my place, on that tree You hung there, when it should have been me. I can’t say thank you enough…I can’t say…Just know that I love You and I will spend the rest of my days glorifying You and singing Your praise. 

Lord, forgive me. Their are so many people who are lost. They don’t know You…or they don’t want to and I can’t change their hearts…I know that only You can do that…but I still try. I feel like I keep slamming myself against this stone wall willing it to break and instead the people leer at me, you know the expression on their face. They think that I am a lunatic, though all I seek to do is love, I am gentle in my approach…I don’t Bible thump. I recognize that You are a gentleman You want to be invited in…and yet the world makes You stay outside…they have not been trained to do what is right. In this world where wrong is right and night is day…everyone tries to hide away and all seem hurt and lost, You shine your light, it’s ever so bright and I just want to soak it in so that ones again I can meet the rock with my limbs and maybe it will budge. You said faith can move a mountain…well help me break this rock! 

 

In Jesus Name, Amen.
