I’d Like A Double Portion Of Grace, Please.

Psalm 121:1 has become one of favourite verses since I became a mum. Sometimes, the farthest I look up to is the ceiling fan as I wonder where my instantaneous, sanity saving, tongue-holding help is coming from. Then I remember from the Lord who made heaven and earth. And proceed to call on heaven, FAST.

That’s the life of this mother. So many times my natural allocations of tolerance and grace run very low.

But God!

I’ve seen Him recharge and refresh me day after day. I’m not super woman, in fact sometimes all I am is super stretched. BUT, by His grace and power, I have supernatural strength and grace to face today.

My prayer for today and all subsequent days, is that heaven would grant me a double portion of grace to keep me going.

The LORD bless you, and keep you. The LORD make His face shine upon you, And be gracious to you.(Numbers 6:24-25 NKJV)

Have a grace filled day.

30 Days Of Depth : Day 4

I admire stories of people who have walked closely with God. Abraham was a friend of God. Enoch walked with God. Jacob wrestled with God. David was a man after God’s own heart. Then there are those who I have been privileged to meet, who have chosen to obey God with all that they have got, forsaking all others. God’s footsteps are seen all over their lives.

I realize that He is the same God and intimacy with Him is not reserved for a select few. He desires intimacy with me. Many are the times that I have rejected His invitation, then I sometimes wonder why we are not as close.

intimacy

I have become content with the same old, yet His mercies are NEW every morning; great is His faithfulness. Honestly, what happens is that once in a while I accept His invitation, then I walk in awe of Him for that one encounter for days on end; forgetting that I can have that encounter daily, if only I would let Him come in.

He desires intimacy with you.

Have you accepted His invitation? What is holding you back?

Are you still walking in awe of something He did weeks ago while ignoring His current invitation?

His mercies are new every morning. Don’t waste any more precious moments. Accept His invitation and let Him take you on an adventure.

The prayer of the day is:

Dear God,

I thank you for seeking me out. Please forgive me for the times that I have ignored your call to walk closer with you all because I was comfortable or scared. I am so humbled that you do not give up on me, you still pursue me. 

I know your grace is sufficient. Sometimes I am afraid of the unknown. Lord, I believe that you are more than enough, that you are able to sustain me; help my unbelief. I desire to walk on uncharted waters with you. To be intimate with you. To grow deeper in you, experience a new side of you.

Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders, let me walk upon the waters wherever you would call me. Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander, and my faith will be made stronger in the presence of my Savior

I am yours, and you are mine.

In Jesus name I pray and believe,

Amen

The song of the day is:

Blessings,
