At this time of year, when many are making (and already breaking!) resolutions, I find it helpful to keep this prayer close by. While there's nothing wrong with setting goals to grow and change, I don't want to be outside of God's will or achieve things that might take me from HIS best for me. - Marina
Your God-Given Place
- Roy Lessin
Lord, you are my hiding place, my dwelling place, my safe place, my secret place, my holy place, and my balanced place. Continue to teach me and instruct me to know Your perfect place for me in every choice I make, in every action I take, and in every word I speak.
RAISE UP A BARRIER to hinder me if I am pursuing a place you have not chosen for me;
BRING YOUR WISDOM to me if I am not understanding something about Your ways that needs clarity;
DRY UP ANY POOL I am drinking from that is not being fed by Your river; slow me down if I am going after something that is premature in Your plan for me;
TURN ME FROM ANY CONFIDENCE I am placing in anyone or anything that is taking my eyes off of You.
LORD, KEEP MY HEART FROM COVETING the place you have given others, and guard my heart from envying the ways You are using others. Help me to set my expectations upon You, and not upon the way I think things should be or want them to be.
LORD, SETTLE ME AND HELP ME take my place—not to run from it, or hide from it; not to fear it, or dread it, not to strive in it, or be anxious about it. Help me daily to know the contentment and the joy of serving You in Your appointed place.

Just another Jesus-girl on a journey...mostly around my home, but wherever else He drags me to. I love Jesus. Do my best at life. Write about what I learn. Always making messes on the table and in relationships. I take pictures of things others don't notice, craft and hand quilt, bake and cook and mostly I pray. Affiliate Links may be used.
