Obedience, oh the sound of that word makes me cringe at times. It is so hard to obey and even harder to obey out of love. Only you Lord can give me the spirit of obedience. Only you can make my love for you into service, obedience and love. I pray for the willing open heart to obey what you have called me to do. I know you have a special calling on my life and I will submit to that calling with loving obedience. I will not only obey but I will do so with love and a joy filled attitude. This is so hard for me, and I pray you will give me strength and guidance in this. I know in and through You all things are possible. I submit my stubborn spirit and attitude to You and to your ways. Let my actions be filled with Your love and I pray others will see You in my obedience. You amaze me daily with your sufficient grace. Oh how I love you oh Lord.
Seeing God’s Glory
Oh Lord you are grace and truth. Your name is above all names! You alone deserve all the praise and glory. Words can not express my love for you. There is NOTHING in this world that compares to you. Show me Your glory Lord, show me Your way. I want the praise from my lips only be to You. Keep my eyes focused on You and not on the things of this world. Give me the strength and courage to turn from what the world says I should glorify. Your ultimate sacrifice on the cross deserves all my praise and glory. The things of this world will fade and pass away but you Jesus, you are forever. All praise, all honor, all glory is to You and You alone.
1 Corinthians 13:4-8
God is Patient, God is kind. God does not envy, God does not boast, God is not proud, God does not dishonor others, God is not self-seeking, God is not easily angered, God keeps no record of wrongs. God does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. God always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. God never fails.
GOD IS LOVE!!!! I want to be more like Him.
I find is so hard to love the unlovable. Lord give me a heart that loves others as you have loved me. Give me a deep understanding of your love for me so that I can then love others. I want to bring praise and honor to you though this love. Help me to love those close around me. At times it seems that I treat them so unlovingly. Let my love reflect your love and your promises. Help to hold true to Your love and that Your love will dwell in me and be life changing.
