The Prayer from Hidden Joy, Week 4:
Heavenly Father, it is so difficult to walk through darkness. You feel so far away. I feel so alone. Father, thank You for Your promise that You will never leave me or forsake me and that there is nothing in all creation that will ever separate me from the love I have in Your Son, Jesus. Thank You for Your promise that You will bring good out of anything that enters my life when I love You and trust You to use it for Your purposes. Lord, I cling to that promise now. I also claim Your promise that You have a plan and a purpose for my life, and it is to prosper and not to harm me, to give me a hope and a future. Walk ever so closely with me during this darkness, Lord, and show me treasures. Thank You that You will bring beauty from ashes. I ask all these things in Jesus’ name. Amen.
This prayer is so appropriate for me today. While I may feel distraught, fearful, or scared, I know that God is in control and I can trust Him to take care of everything. I have to. We have to. :)
How perfect that along with our study next week, we also have the opportunity to begin a 7-Day Doubt Diet next week. Hope you signed up for Renee Swopes doubt diet on her blog. This doubt diet is a little sneak peak into our next study, A Confident Heart, which begins mid-September. It will be the perfect follow up to Hidden Joy. Renee and I are praying that the doubt diet will give you a boost as you proceed through Hidden Joy.
Now to something exciting….our 2 winners of the advanced copies of A Confident Heart.
Congratulations! Email me at Melissa@MelissaTaylor.org and we’ll make arrangements for you to get your awesome book!
Ladies, I ask for your prayers today. That’s all I can say. Just pray. Someone amazing and special needs your prayers. And honestly, so do I. Feeling very weak and weary. Trusting God because I know with Him all things are possible.
