I desire to draw near to You. I desire to be overflowing with Your love and character. I desire to live my life following in Your footsteps. I desire that every breath I breathe is in praise and joy for You my King.
Lord, I need You. Everyday I am in such desperate need of You. I need Your love to consume the storm in me. I need Your Word to seep into my mind and erase the lies that try to break me. I need Your embrace to remind me I’m not alone. I need Your wisdom to guide me through this life. I need Your strength to do the things You’ve called me to do. I need all of You in every part of me.
May I not live my life as if this is all there is for me. May I not waste away looking for wholeness in the things of this world. May I not go through each chapter trying to fill the holes in me with people who are not God. May I always look to God for my sustenance, worth, and meaning. All the answers are found in Him.
God, I’m going to choose to trust You.
In my confusion, I will trust You. In my uncertainty, I will trust You. In my loneliness, I will trust You. In my fear, I will trust You. In my insecurities, I will trust You. In my mess, I will trust You. In my pain, I will trust You.
I want to learn. Whatever You are trying to teach me I want to learn. Help me to open myself up to the lessons You’ve prepared for me. Guide me through the process of becoming more and more like Jesus.
My life is Yours. My heart beats for You alone. My soul dances in Your presence. My body moves in praise and awe of You. You are my Sovereign King. My Faithful Father. My Wonderful Counselor. God, You are everything to me. You shine brighter than all the stars in all the galaxies. The light You bring to my life strengthens me in the darkness. You remind me that I am precious, wanted, beautiful, and capable of all You’ve called me to.
When you are having a hard time don’t hide it from God. When you are struggling to just breathe don’t pretend in front of Him that you are fine. When the storms are heartbreaking don’t try to bear it alone. When it hurts in places you’d forgotten about don’t cover your wounds with lies. When life is dark and full of suffering don’t act strong. Be real with God. Be honest and clear about about what’s wrong. Talk to Him. He is your Wonderful Counselor. Let Him speak into your pain. Let Him love you through the sorrow. Let God be there with you; let your Father bring restoration to you.
Jesus, please guide me in all the days of my life. Lead me down the path You designed just for me. Help me to find the light in the darkness. Teach me how to navigate through the dark waters so I can reach the shore. Form testimonies through the detours. Give me the strength to walk the walk You have called me to. Lord of my life please guide me. Jesus be the compass that never leads me astray. I pray to spend my life walking down the path You lovingly made for me. Jesus may I always follow You. May the life I live always please You.
