10.30.13 Prayer Time

Oh Lord, this day hasn't gone like we've planned it... but we hope it's gone as You planned it! We can rest in that fact.

Please forgive us Lord, when we have taken our eyes off of You. Please Father, help us to not stray. Help us to not doubt, but to GO when You say "GO" and STAY when You say "STAY" - help us to listen deeper to what you are saying so we won't second guess our steps...the steps You desire us to take.

Father, You are so good to be patient with us! Your fruits of the Spirit show through you; help us to be full of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness, faithfulness and self-control. (Galatians 5:22) Help us to grow in You, so that your fruit will shine through us too. 

You are so gracious, and loving and kind. Thank You for sharing your goodness with us, and help us to be content with what You give us day to day. Teach us to not strive with what is on our plate, not to look at what you have given someone else. We pray that we will seek Your face more than anything else... more than approval from people, more than any other god we would put before us, more than anything, or anyone... let us be captivated and content with You. 

And Father, when we fail You, as we most surely will, help us to stand back up again and step towards You in humility - knowing that

I feel tender and raw...vulnerable. I cry at the drop of a hat, even over silly things, like TALKING about not watching a movie that would make me cry...not even watching that movie. Just talking about it. Oh dear! I did want to touch base though as we approach Christmas...all the sadness is making me draw even nearer to Jesus, because He is my hope (and the hope of the world). I've enjoyed my time of Advent, singing in the choir at church, baking cookies for friends and neighbors. It helps me to shift gears emotionally and mentally when I can change it up a bit and do something new. And in God's goodness, He is allowing us to do something new for Christmas! I'll share the detai

Romans 12, Parts 2 and 3: Balanced and Beautiful in Christ

The new posts that I wrote for Balanced and Beautiful in Christ are now live on their Facebook page, and here on my new blog site (subscribe there so you don't miss a thing!). It's been a crazy few weeks (ok...are we going on several months now??) but I'm grateful that God had me write (and schedule) these several weeks ago. I pray that the words bless you and draw you closer to Himself.  Blessings, marina
