“Oh, God, my Lord, step in; work a miracle for me-You can do it! Get me out of here-Your love is so great!- I‘m at the end of my rope… Help me , Oh help me, God, my God, save me through Your wonderful love; Then they’ll know that Your hand is in this, that You, God, have been at work.” Psalm 109:21-22; 26-27 MSG
I look back and remember times when I could see God’s hand in my life. So, why do I get so discouraged when I have to wait? I get worn out, exhausted from asking. I lose that sense of hope and expectancy. That’s when I realize that I am clinging to the prayer too tight. But when I hold it out to Jesus, I am not empty handed, because He takes my hand in His…
“You reach out Your hand, and the power of Your right hand saves me. The LORD will work out His plans for my life-for Your faithful love, O LORD, endures forever. Don’t abandon me, for You made me…I bow before Your holy Temple as I worship. I praise Your name for Your unfailing love and faithfulness; for Your promises are backed by all the honor of Your name. As soon as I pray, You answer me; You encourage me by giving me strength.” Psalm 138:7,8,2&3 NLT
David had faith that God would finish the plans that He had for his life. Maybe that’s why he never stopped praying, pleading, asking, believing, hoping , praising & dancing…
“Finish what You started in me, God. Your love is eternal-don’t quit on me now…”Psalm 128:8 MSG Isn’t that what I am really asking?
“This is what I want you to do: Ask the Father for whatever is in keeping with the things I’ve revealed to you. Ask in My name, according to My will, and He’ll most certainly give it to you. Your joy will be a river overflowing its banks!” John 16:24 NLT
Dear Jesus, thank You for the promise in Your word that You will complete the good work You began in me (Phil 1:6) . Thank You for Your faithfulness in my life. I praise You for who You are. Amen

Thank you, Amy; these words are right on today for where I am. I want God to perfect that which concerns me most, and what I need is to see with His eyes, to love with His sacrificial heart, and to work with His hands of mercy. How energizing to know that His Holy Spirit is working in us to accomplish all that He has planned for us today!
Thanks…it was very timely for me as well! I have to share my You version verse for the day, “No one has ever seen God. But if we love each other, God lives in us, and his love is brought to full expression in us. And God has given us his Spirit as proof that we live in him and he in us.” 1 John 4:12-12 NLT
This is right where I am at today. I have been holding out this prayer to God and wanting the answer YESTERDAY!!! This post really hit home.
I was taking a walk and praying…that is when I saw my hands gripping the stroller and felt like God was telling me, that is how I was gripping my prayer. I have to give it to Him every day. I am wanting an answer yesterday too!
