Lord, I am so thinking on You today, as usual, and asking You to USE ME TO ENCOURAGE SOMEONE ELSE through this life YOU LIVE THROUGH ME.  I am LOOKING BACK OVER MY LIFEand thinking of all the many times YOU have rescued me.  I am THANKING YOU for causing so many VICTORIES in my life, even when I felt at such a lost.  

I am reminded of how YOU have taught me AGAPE, that UNCONDITIONAL LOVE that You have for us and how You’ve taught me FORGIVENESS.  It has not been an easy PROCESS Lord but I WALK NOW IN YOUR LOVE.  You have allowed so many to touch! my heart and NOT leave imprints of Your LOVE.   You’ve allowed so much ADVERSITY, so many storms of life but in every one YOU’VE KEPT ME.  You’ve always TAKEN THE BROKENNESS and taught me more about YOU.   

I am reminded of all the scars and tears Lord and how You always told me that YOU ALLOWED THIS FOR YOUR PURPOSE IN ME.  I am reminded of how You gently took and even now take each and every piece of my broken heart and carefully mend them back together.  And as You mend YOU SPEAK TO ME and I LISTEN ATTENTIVELY.  You’re so good at this Lord.  As You conversate with me I am moved by the way You purposefully ask me questions and sometimes answer them YOURSELF.  You have such a way of AMAZING ME. 

You touch me O’ Lord in every area of my life and DRAW ME CLOSER TO YOU.  As YOU mend me You allow me to feel the initial stitch! and then I get so MEZMORIZED by YOUR VOICE and YOUR TOUCH! that I completely forget what’s happening.  You’ve taught me God that THIS IS MY PLACE OF WORSHIP.  When I allow You to MOVE ME from the natural realm to the SPIRIT REALM You are able to redirect my thinking, to reconcile my heart, to instruct me more in YOUR WAYS.  

I hear You all too often telling me that YOU TRUST ME WITH THIS.  Why do You trust me so much Lord with wounds?  Why do You allow ONE WHO LOVES YOU SO MUCH TO SUFFER SO MUCH?  And I always hear You say … BECAUSE I LOVE YOU AND YOU WON’T KNOW ME THE WAY I DESIRE YOU TO KNOW ME UNLESS YOU KNOW MY SUFFERING while being INNOCENT as I was.  I find comfort in those words and it’s so relaxing to just REST HERE IN YOUR LOVE as You CONTINUE YOUR WORK IN ME.  Every time You slowly allow me to RETURN TO CONFRONT THE “ISSUES” OF LIFE I find myself RENEWED and burdens lifted.  All my concerns are somehow minimized and A NEW LEVEL IN YOU I’ve acquired.  

What are You making of me Lord?  What are You doing in my life?  I know I shouldn’t look for You to answer but I DO WONDER.  I know it must be something great, something I can’t even imagine because YOU’VE had to take me to THIS PLACE IN YOU SO OFTEN.  

So, as I continue in this day I pray that YOU KEEP YOUR LOVING ARMS AROUND ME.  I pray that You comfort somebody through CONNECTING THEM WITH THE GOD IN ME.  I pray that A HEART BE ENCOURAGED TO KEEP ON KEEPING ON IN YOU.  I pray Heavenly Father that every word YOU DIRECT ME to say, every prayer that YOU CAUSE ME TO PRAY, every tear that YOU ALLOW ME TO SHED will bring someone else CLOSER TO YOU.  I pray that they COME TO RECOGNIZE that TRUE SERVANTS SUFFER MUCH but THE GLORY THAT IS REVEALED IS GREAT!  Visiting the places that we were and sharing the place where we are allow YOUR WAYS to reveal themselves and is our way of sharing our TESTimonies.  I thank You for allowing me to have so many, for TRUSTING ME WITH THE HEARTS OF YOUR PEOPLE. 

I am so ENCOURAGED BY YOUR ATTENTION that You give unto me.  I ponder O’ God, as Mary, on the MAGNITUDE AND BEAUTY OF YOUR LOVE.  I sit AT YOUR FEET and I take in all that I can in order to BE USEFUL IN YOU.  Thank You for ALLOWING ME TO SUP WITH YOU, for always FILLING MY CUP over and over again.  I will continue to TRUST IN YOU WITH ALL MY HEART AND LEAN NOT ON MY OWN UNDERSTANDING.  IN “ALL” MY WAYS I PROMISE TO CONTINUE TO ACKNOWLEDGE YOU AND I KNOW YOU WILL CONTINUE TO DIRECT MY PATHS.  (Proverbs 3:5,6) 

Again … thank YOU and I love You so much…
