I come to you today so grateful to have seen 2017 and so blessed to be able to see 2018. I love your love for me; it is so overwhelmingly amazing. I want to take time out to thank you for being God, thank you for not being like man. Thank you for your mercies that are new every day. I declare great grace over 2018! I declare that all is well with everyone who is reading this prayer. Father, I thank you for healthy bodies and sound minds in 2018. I thank you for being such a loving and kind father. 2018 will be a year of us drawing near to you, seeking your face and not your hand. 2018 will be a year of us knowing that our identity is in you alone. I thank for all of my gifts, and I thank you for every person reading this post, may they know who loves them and who has a great plan for their lives. In Jesus name!
Is there anything I can stand with you in prayer about? Recently I was convicted about my prayer life. I usually don’t pray for anyone unless they are going through something and I feel as if they need prayer. In my quiet time, I was prompted to be more aware of the needs of those around me. I should be praying for businesses, clients, co-workers and everyone else who I cross paths with.
I had the opportunity to speak into one of my client’s lives today, and it made me write a letter to God praying for this particular person. During my quiet time, it became apparent that praying for others needed to be done every single day. What if I prayed for all of my clients during my quiet time? How would having someone stand with them in prayer impact their lives? How would having someone thank God for their lives help them? A lot of time has gone by, and I no longer want to ignore the role I can play in the lives of those who I impact.
So I ask again, What can I pray with/ for you about? Comment below or email your requests to firstname.lastname@example.org
I am so blessed to have a community of people who I can connect with to share the love of christ.
How often do you share the love of christ? To me, sharing the message of God’s unconditional love is my life’s mission. Everyone deserves to be loved and know that they are loved by their creator. I do my best to treat people with respect and love them as God loves me. At times I do fall short but I never let that stop me from doing what I feel is most important. Each time I get to speak with someone who might be going through a difficult time I let them know that they are loved.
How do I know that God loves them? I know God loves them because he loves us all. I know that God loves them because I seek his face and he has shown me his everlasting love. I truly believe that if we focus on God’s love for us that we will live better lives. We will be more positive, compassionate and successful if and when we focus on God’s love. His love for us grows daily and it can not be compared. His love can not be replaced and there is nothing that can separate us from God’s love.
Today I want to encourage you to share the love of christ with everyone you come in contact with this week. Share in the comments about your experience and I’ll be sure to share mine.
How often do you committ your plans to the lord?
We are half way through the year and I just realized that my calendar is filled with appointments and deadline week in and week out. Most of those appointments I didn’t speak to God about I just said yes. Why is it important to seek God about your plans? God can and will give us wisdom about everything, maybe there is a community group that you want to join and it meets 4x a week. If you seek God before saying yes, he could tell you that 4x a week is a little much for you.
God knows before we know when we are over booking ourselves. I committed to going to the gym 4x a week before work, knowing good and well that I am not a morning person and wouldn’t be thrilled about getting up at 6:30am to work out and still be at work by 9:00am.
Now is the time to sit down and lay out your plans before the Lord. He is here to lead and guide us. He is here to give us wisdom and ultimately help us each step of the way. Comment below and let me know how you committ your plans to the Lord and I will keep you all posted on my progress.
It has been a littile over 2 months since I have posted to PDJ and I just want to thank you all for sticking around. Life has gotten very busy as I am focusing on my health, managaing a office and starting my debt free journey. I recently realized that I am not as disciplined as I thought I was, so I’ve decided to do somehting about it. I look forward to sharing more about my debt free journey but most importantly I look forward to sharing Jesus with all of you each and every wednesday.
Talk to you soon,
Sunday Reminder from Victoria Osteen
I pray we all stay encouraged this week knowing that God brings true success.
All is well here at PDJ. Let’s start this week out knowing and believing that God’s promises are true and he will do what he says he will.
Have a blessed week,
