Natasha’s Daily Scripture, Prayer, and Reflection for 8.26.19

Scripture

When my heart was bitter, when I was all cut up inside, I was stupid and ignorant. I acted like nothing but an animal toward you. But I was still always with you! You held my strong hand! You have guided me with your advice; later you will receive me with glory.

Do I have anyone else in heaven? There’s nothing on earth I desire except you. My body and my heart fail, but God is my heart’s rock and my share forever.

Psalms 73:21‭-‬26 CEB

Reflection

We can look around and see family members, our significant other, friends, associates, and acquaintances, but the only Love that is unconditionally guaranteed is God’s.

The only source for eternal Life and Truth is God. The only solution to our problems is God. Salvation can only come by way of God, so why not put our trust fully in Him?

We expect Him to be there for us, but how dependable are we to have complete and total faith in Him? Where’s our unconditional love for Him?

Prayer

Lord, no matter what I do or say, no matter how I act or think, You have always been my comforter, my rock, my fortress, my protector, my Father-Mother—my beginning, middle, and end. Thank You.

Thank You for restoring me when I am beat down, worn out, and don’t know where to go or what to do. You are always here, there, everywhere. Thank You Father.

Thank You for mending my broken heart each time someone took advantage of me, played games on me, felt empowered to tell me lies while “stabbing” me in my back, or looked in my eyes claiming to love me while they schemed with and lusted after another. Thank You for helping me to forgive them, sometimes in phases, and begin to let go of the grip the pain had on me.

Thank You for redirecting me when my selfishness steered me off of Your desired path. When my lust, greed, or self-centeredness reared their ugly heads to get in the way. Thank You for loving me even when I’m unloving. You are the example that I’m to follow, unconditionally, yet I struggle, even though I know the endless blessings that I would have. Thank You for still loving me.

Thank You for lifting my head, wiping my tears, strengthening my body, healing my heart, calming my mind, mending that which is torn or broken, and taking my hand as I learn to walk on a new path with increasing confidence.

Thank You Father for making a way out of no way, for making sure that bills were and are paid when they were supposed to, and for reassuring me that the unpaid bills would one day be settled. Thank You for showing me how to run the marathon called life—moment by precious moment, and for healing me— when man said, that only through his medicine could I be healed. Thank you Lord. In Your son Jesus’ name I humbly pray to You. Amen.

Love,

Natasha
