Late Night Prayer

Dear Lord, 

Thank You that You know me intimately. You are a big God who loves to forgive. You change us from the inside out. Many are the tempting ways of today’s world that may lead us astray from you. Lord, let us not be slaves of our own stubbornness and sin but spread Your wings and takes us in the secure refuge of your love and forgiveness. Protect us and lift us up when we fall down, guiding us and leading us on the only good way, that of your son, Jesus Christ. Please bless us and teach us to find our rest in you. I believe, O Lord God, that You hear our voice and You care for us. You alone are our hope. Our flesh and abilities may fail. However, since the Almighty God is the strength of our heart, Father God, You will make us rise above all the troubles that is besetting us and You will lead us triumphantly. I believe and claim Your promise that ‘ your bread shall be given you and your cruse of oil will not fail’. I submit fully unto You, Yahweh, and I invite to be Master of every sphere of my life. 

Please protect us from the evil one and restore our joy, in Jesus Name, Amen.

Jesus Calling

I LOVE YOU regardless of how well you are performing. Sometimes you feel uneasy, wondering if you are doing enough to be worthy of My Love. No matter how exemplary your behavior, the answer to that question will always be no. Your performance and My Love are totally different issues, which you need to sort out. I love you with an everlasting Love that flows out from eternity without limits or conditions. I have clothed you in My robe of righteousness, and this is an eternal transaction: Nothing and no one can reverse it. Therefore, your accomplishment as a Christian has no bearing on My Love for you. Even your ability to assess how well you are doing on a given day is flawed. Your limited human perspective and the condition of your body, with its mercurial variations, distort your evaluations.

Bring your performance anxiety to Me, and receive in its place My unfailing Love. Try to stay conscious of My loving Presence with you in all that you do, and I will direct your steps.

The LORD appeared to us in the past, saying: “I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with loving-kindness.”

[JEREMIAH 31:3]

I delight greatly in the LORD; my soul rejoices in my God. For he has clothed me with garments of salvation and arrayed me in a robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom adorns his head like a priest, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.

[ISAIAH 61:10]

Let your face shine on your servant; save me in your unfailing love.

[PSALM 31:16]

Let them give thanks to the LORD for his unfailing love and his wonderful deeds for men.

[PSALM 107:8]

Beautiful Dreams [Good Night]

The lovely blooms in the wild,

Gently closing their eyes.

Waiting for the sun to,

Smile again and again rise.

To freshen the world with,

The warm light so bright.

Dreaming of a beautiful tomorrow,

Lets sleep happy and sleep tight.

No wonder nights scare us,

No worry they are dark.

The day will again come,

Full of fun and spark.

So take your warm,

and cozy pillow beside.

Take a deep breath,

And close your eyes.

Get ready to take rest and,

Say a very good night.

Siblings [Late Night Thoughts]

Ignorance: lacking knowledge, information, or awareness about something in particular.

synonyms: without knowledge of, unaware of, unconscious of, oblivious to, incognizant of, unfamiliar with, unacquainted with, uninformed about, ill-informed about, unenlightened about, unconversant with, inexperienced in/with, naive about, green about; informalin the dark about, clueless about

Above is simply a definition. My mind however, ponders how two siblings can live within five miles of one another, and one sibling be so ignorant about the life of the other. Then God reminded me, only one of us has a relationship with Him, hence the reason it seems sad I suppose.
