For the grace of God has appeared that offers salvation to all people.
Titus 2:11 NIV
Father I opened my eyes and took a breath today because of You, thank You. It is not my will but Yours that wakes me each day. You are my fortress, my protector, my healer, my provider, and I love You.
I pray that worry leaves me and that faith fills me. I pray that doubt disappears and is replaced by belief, understanding, and conviction. I pray in Your name, as a believer and follower of Your son Jesus. Amen.
Seeing this passage soon after having a heartwarming conversation with my man, who lifted me up and put a smile on my face as we reflected on God’s greatness and the fact that He’s never let me down or left me alone—so I should never have reason to worry.
God has no limits so my age should never be a concern of mine, God can make happen whatever He wants whenever He wants, so it doesn’t matter if we’re age two or 102, He can do anything.
With my increasing faith I should not worry (even have “good” worry), but instead smile and keep pressing forward. As my man said to me, both he and God have my back, front, and my sides—I just have to keep marching, serving God, and helping His children. When times get tough I can lean on my man’s shoulder while being encircled by God’s spiritual arms. A triple blessing is knowing that my family is also there for me.
I am reminded of a saying my man frequently shares with the worriers of the world, “if you’re gonna worry then why pray? And if you’re gonna pray then why worry?” This is true.
So I’m going to continue praying and dreaming, working and serving, and believing. I pray the same for each of you. Whatever is meant for us will never be withheld, or given to another person.
God is good—ALL of the time!
Happy Monday and happy first day of October!
