New beginnings, college start, birthdays and wedding anniversary - this month my family had a lot to thank for and celebrate. Praise God for such opportunities!
I was really down these past few days with a lot on my mind, but recently I’ve been feeling more relieved as each day goes by. Things still look cloudy for me, but I’m thankful for the hope God fills my heart with. Even in tough times I can trust that He’s still in control of everything. I’m glad I can count that He had a bigger plan for my life and that He will guide me through it all. I’m hopeful that in the right time He’ll start revealing me His will and things will start to fall into the right place.
Have you ever done something only to regret it later? Have you asked for opportunities or asked for something so bad but when you got it you mistakenly turned it down? I’m afraid I might have done something wrong, losing an opportunity I need and asked for so bad.
How I wish I could go back in time…
Even after praying so hard, sometimes it’s hard to accept our errors and trust God to make things right. But I do believe He hasn’t left me empty handed. He can make something good out of my mistakes.
Lord, please make the best out of my worst.
Procrastinator- there’s no better word to describe myself lately. The sad thing is that it’s in every aspect of my life, and it’s even affecting my relationship with God. I pray asking for answers and blessings, but when opportunities come I let them pass by. How am I going to become a better person if I continue going on like this? I’ll end up nowhere and alone. Later in life I don’t want to look back and regret the chances I had but didn’t take. Oh Lord, please forgive me and give me strength to grasp opportunities as they come my way.
I know God has a big plan for my life. I’ve always prayed for Him to lead me and show me exactly what it is. It’s true that in some cases what He has prepared for us isn’t quite what we would choose or even like to do. But God knows best, he sees the whole picture, and He knows us better than ourselves. Trusting that He has the best for me, I ask Him to show me what His plans are. But for that that I have to be prepared, specially spiritually.
Lord, prepare me for whatever is ahead of me. Prepare me not for worldly success, but for true success in You; not for worldly riches, but to store my treasure in heaven; not for worldly fame or recognition, but to be acknowledged by You and hear You say: “Well done good and faithful servant”. Help me grow in faith, have genuine love overflowing in my heart, and my hope anchored in You. Amen
