January 10 Prayer
For I am with you
Repent and believe in the good news
I will help you
And uphold you
Come and leave everything behind and
Where is he going?
What must I leave behind?
Clear out the clutter in my mind.
I must start there and change the direction of my thinking.
Maybe once I remove everything that is in the way I can actually find the treasure hidden in the secret place of stillness.
Once I slow down the pace and embrace this awkward time of topsy turvy, what seems upside down will turn right side up.
Begin again to
“Lord, thank you for this moment you have declared your kingdom is near.
Today I choose to turn around my thinking and trust you will work everything out for your glory.
I give to you every barren place in my soul
where a promise has be miscarried.
I open up my eyes to see that in your time
and in your kingdom
there is a great opportunity for us to step into.
So let us not miss it in waiting for time to pass.
Let us not rush ahead into false starts
but find the treasure you have for us right now.
Help us to clear out the clutter to follow you on a clear path ahead
and may we all wear the beads of kindness and truth around our necks.
Let this moment rise up for us to step into a new day with a new hope trusting the way ahead will be made clear.
In Jesus our guide
