If you’re only praying for material things, then you must only have fabricated faith.
The more I read about Jesus, the more I admire His faith.
You not only get a lesson of how to pray, but you also will notice what He didn’t pray for.
Not once did He ask for a house or a donkey to get around on, but He did ask for DAILY bread, the daily essentials.
He didn’t pray for a better tomorrow, or dwell over yesterday.
He knew His Father will provide what He needed day by day, but the prayer was important to communicate with God and to build that relationship with His Father.
We praise Him, give thanks and ask for forgiveness for ourselves and for others.
I’ve been learning to pray for what He wants me to do with my life, while asking Him to remove anything that isn’t from Him, even if it hurts me but to give me the strength and the courage to handle whatever the outcome.
Praying is like exercising.
We need it in our lives to help sustain our health mentally, physically and emotionally.
As you progress in your life, don’t forget to reflect on your actions.
Don’t forget the actions of those around you that helped you progress.
Don’t forget the sacrifice of your loved ones in your life that have helped you along the way, including Jesus.
Never forget the people that opened their hearts to help raise you and the hands that helped lift you up in prayer.
I wrote this after watching an elderly lady struggling to push her shopping cart to the supermarket on her own and it got me thinking about my nena.
While some take their parents and grandparents for granted, others are praying they still had theirs around.
Don’t forget to check in on them, even if it’s just a phone call.
As we get older, so do they.
Every day with them is a blessing so make every day with them count!
Don’t be two-faced. Introduce the gossiper in you, to the gospel in you.
Be the kind of woman that brings women together, not the kind of woman that holds the bridge to unite everyone but continues to play the role of the troll.
Go out of your way to escape from the sin, instead of making others feel uncomfortable in their skin.
Pray for God’s direction and blessings on your new ventures, pray for perserverance and passion in existing ones and pray for strength and guidance in any failed ones.
It is better to try on many hats and fail with God in your life, than to have too many faces and succeed with satan by your side.
Be you and be true and let God handle the rest🙌
