It seems my pen has been still these past 9 months.
I have been still... Reflecting. Healing.
Instead of writing, I have been in prayer & meditation. God has comforted my soul and, in His mercy, He has met me in life’s storms and held me up out of the depths of despair.
My soul is lighter and I have been made stronger.
22. Immediately he made the disciples get into the boat and go before him to the other side, while he dismissed the crowds. 23. And after he dismissed the crowds, he went up in the mountain by himself to pray. When evening came, he was there alone 24. But the boat by this time was long way from the land, beaten by the waves, for the wind was against them. 25. And in the fourth watch of the night he came to them, walking on the sea. But when the disciples saw him walking on the sea they were terrified and said “It is a ghost!” And they cried out in fear 27. But immediately Jesus spoke to them saying “Take heart; it is I. Do not be afraid.”
Could God be coming into your life in what appears to be a storm?
The Lord works in the storms of our lives and thru those storms, He walks to us and with us.
The very storm He meets you in is the same storm you become strong in. He will uplift you and even bless you in these storms.
Do not be afraid.
Lord, help us to focus on
you and your power
our fear and our doubts.
Savior of my soul and king over my life. Be with me each and every day, especially in this storm that is all around me. Take my hand and walk with me; guide me to the other side.
You have promised me peace that passes all understanding. It is Your Holy grace and mercy with unconditional love that draws me closer to You.
If it is Your will that I go thru this storm, I pray for the endurance and strength to withstand it. With You by my side, fear can not overtake me for faith replaces fear.
May this test of fire refine and purify my faith and my soul. May I see the power of God in this storm and His light that pierces the darkness and shatters all fear. I seek only You in times of trouble.
Lord, I pray my faith will continue to grow and mature so I can never be swayed by the waves around me.
Help me to recognize Your favor over my life and I ask for Your blessings and continued protection.
My confidence rests in You, the Savior of my soul, my redeemer, my Lord.
Deuteronomy 31:6 tells us to “Be strong and courageous.” I pray this for you, my friend.
Take heart, child of God! Do not be afraid. ~
