seek peace

Psalm 34:13
“Keep your tongue from evil & do good. SEEK PEACE & PURSUE IT

seek peace
chase after peace
do NOT STOP chasing peace
pursue it until you catch it & if it escapes you again, run after it
pursue diligently after peace

DO NOT GIVE UP
DO NOT GIVE IN
DO NOT GIVE OVER

until the day that peace is yours
until you possess it fully

The peace of God
The peace that passes ALL understanding
The peace that guards your heart & mind

Rejoice in the Lord ALWAYS, again I will say REJOICE! Let your reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand. Do not be anxious about anything, but in EVERYTHING, by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving

today i pray for peace in the midst of the chaos

peace in the midst of crisis
peace in the midst of pain
peace in the midst of defeat
peace in the midst of success
peace in the midst of life

today i pray for you to find a moment of peace in Him.

Psalm 20

A prayer for my friends and family and all those afar. i don’t think that there are any words that could be added to David’s, so the text will speak for my prayer today…

amen…


monday

It is a sad week here in our small town. 2 awesome young men, fathers, mentors, husbands, friends, were taken from this earth to their heavenly homes on Sunday, April 6. Their families grieve for the loss. Their friends weep. Their children’s hearts shattered. Their loss impacts many here and around the world.

So many losses in this past month. Senseless death. Heartbreak. Sorrow. So many communities grieving. The only one who can console is our loving heavenly Father. Only He can relate. Only He can heal. Only He can help us continue without these who have influenced, encouraged, loved, and etched their memories into our hearts. Only He can make us whole again. And yet, we will never be completely whole until we are joined together in heaven again.

Today i pray for the families, the communities, the ones who are lost and wandering. i pray for comfort, for friends, for healing, for peace. the marks that they carved into our souls will be ever present, the lives they have left will not be forgotten, but the mourning will last for a time. i pray that there are moments of joy in their grief and comfort thru their tears. there are no words that could ever make it ok, but i pray for love, peace, and comfort to surround each one and that they would find their rest in the One who knows the beginning from the end and the heartache of loss.

In loving memory of Pastor Tyler Liljekvist and Coach Chris Prewitt, who both wore more hats than can be listed and both affected lives around the world. May God keep their families and strengthen them thru the fire and on the journey ahead.


days

9 more days…
9 more days!!!
9 more days until the bills are due again. 9 more days to figure out where the money is coming from. 9 more days before things get too serious. God, we have only 9 MORE DAYS!

Genesis 1:1 In the beginning, God created the heavens & the earth…
1:31 God saw all that He had made, and it was very good. And there was evening & there was morning – the sixth day.

If in 6 days, the God of the Universe created the whole place from nothing, then in 9 days MIRACLES CAN HAPPEN!

But there are so many, Lord, that don’t have 9 more days. Today is the reckoning for those families. They have ZERO days. No more minutes of waiting, expecting, hoping. The time for action is now, the time for Your glory has arrived. You are a God of hope, a God of timing, a God of patience. Show Your glory to those families today, Lord. Let them know who You are. Let others see Your faithfulness in their lives. Let others be amazed at Your perfect timing.

Today i pray for those who are at their last breath, the ones who are out of time, the ones who feel crushed beneath the weight of the world. today i pray for Your miracles, for the rescue that has been holding out, for You to show Your glory in their lives and thru their lives. i pray that You would shine light on their darkest hour brighter than any sun & more powerful than human explanation.

Today i pray for those with just 9 more days. i pray You would give us strength in the waiting, hope in the process, encouragement for the journey. i pray that we would be emboldened to speak of Your faithfulness, energized to accomplish the daily tasks, peace to hear Your voice in the quiet whisper.

i pray, Lord, that You would be with each of us in the waiting, each of us in the darkness, each of us in the GLORY!

2 Timothy 2:13
If we are faithless, He remains faithful, for He cannot deny Himself.

Lord, do not deny Yourself to us today.
Bring Your joy to us this day, i pray…


brokenness

today i said a prayer for you,

for your sorrow and your pain.

the broken relationships in your life,

and each broken thing.

i pray that God will bless you with

hope and joy to get thru this day.

as you walk the narrow path of life,

He sends angels to guide your way.

i pray you have love and support

to carry you thru each torment

and remember God is with you

thru each fleeting moment…
