As I was praying this morning, the verse – PRAY CONTINUALLY - 'jumped out' at me!
Some years ago, I started putting this verse into practice. I began to remind myself continually that GOD IS LISTENING. Now, if He is listening, then why don't I share all my thoughts with Him? After all, He is able to look into my heart...
I have been ‘discussing’ everything with Him and it’s really awesome! He is my devoted Friend. He is faithful. And He is kind. Sometimes, His presence is so real that all I could do is praise Him and thank Him for His great mercy and love.
One day in August last year, when I was preparing a text message to send to my daughter - asking her to buy some bottles of fish essence - before I could send the message, the doorbell rang. Standing at our doorstep was my husband’s cousin and she was holding a bag. Inside the bag were 12 bottles of fish essence! This is more than what I could ask or imagine! Truly, our Father knows what we need. My eyes simply 'popped out' when I looked into the bag; My heart simply pounded with joy and I gasped, "Praise the Lord!" Indeed, what a good good Father we have in heaven! Amen!
You dance over me; while I am unaware;
You sing all around; but I never hear the sound;
Lord I’m amazed by You; Lord I’m amazed by You;
Lord I’m amazed by You; And how You love me;
You paint the morning sky; With miracles in mind;
My hope will always stand; For You hold me in Your hand;
Lord I’m amazed by You; Lord I'm amazed by You;
Lord I'm amazed by You; And how You love me;
How deep, how wide, how great is Your love for me…
I pray that You continue to look into my heart;
From Your commands I choose not to depart;
Father, I invite Your partnership in everything I do;
Your righteousness and peace I earnestly pursue;
Father, I thank You for adopting me;
More and more like You, I want to be!
In Jesus' wonderful name I pray!
