Thankful Life - September 20, 2013

I am being challenged in a way I have never been challenged before... due to my own INaction and INability to deal with something, I have created quite a mess... I am at the end of me - so different than ever before. Father it is Your strength I seek and need. Your words to flow through me and Your grace that I so desperately appreciate at this very moment. 

Help me be still... to trust... prepare...expect to see Your work in all this. I am so crushed by my own disobedience. Lead me in this in a great way. Uphold me as I have no strength left and there is so far. Yet to go.

Oh LORD, I so need your strength to pursue this confrontation that is so overdue. The unraveling of it all is completely in Your hands. As I pray and come to You in whole heart, broken of pride and determined to see Your mercies in this endeavor, I ask for more belief and even more after that to be truthful, tactful and tenacious in speaking what so desperately needs to be spoken. I am Yours LORD and so humbled by my own inabilities; I pray for favor as this is done... as my unraveling becomes Your weaving - help me to be all that You desire me to be, today and through it ALL!

Tonight I give Him thanks that in this moment of preparing, I can see His strength in my steps and words. I give Him thanks because He is my every bit of courage when I am less than courageous... I give Him thanks because through all the challenges, I have seen His mercies and favor. I give Him thanks in spite of the enemy's efforts to thwart all His perfect efforts to show me blessings in trouble and in trials.

He is.


."The sluggard does not plow after the autumn,
So he begs during the harvest and has nothing.
A plan in the heart of a man is like deep water,
But a man of understanding draws it out.
Many a man proclaims his own loyalty,
But who can find a trustworthy man?
A righteous man who walks in his integrity—
How blessed are his sons after him.
A king who sits on the throne of justice
Disperses all evil with his eyes.
Who can say, “I have cleansed my heart,
I am pure from my sin”?" 
~Proverbs 20:4-9 (New American Standard Bible)

Father it is these things that You truly desire for us... integrity, trustworthiness, turning from evil and a true clean heart. For these things the Holy Spirit must be present and working.
