A Prayer

by Katherine Kehler

Lord, little by little You are getting through my befuddled mind to teach me another practical concept about living a life pleasing to You.

Lord Jesus, I know You said that in this world we would have troubles, but for some reason, I really thought there would be fewer problems as I aged, that I would become wise.  But life becomes more complicated.

I wonder, Lord, is it because You need to constantly remind us that this earth is not our home…that we are heaven bound?

So many times I forget that people, circumstances or things cannot give me happiness; only You can.  I realize now that my discouragement can be because of the lack of trusting You.

This day, Lord, I pray that You will enable me to trust You each time a problem arises. Whenever I get stressed, remind me to turn my eyes on You and Your sufficiency.

My help comes from You, Lord.  Amen

    Remember to pray all day and every day so as to make it a day. We need to talk to our GOD like we use to breath. HE loves to hear our whispering to HIM. GOD’s LOVE to us is unconditional. HE loves us like HIS own child. Let us be obedient and faithful to HIM. Pray that every day we can dedicate some times to GOD our LORD without fail. Let us draw closer and closer to GOD and be pleasing to HIM. Only GOD will provides us with peace, love and joy. All the Goodness are from GOD. Let us ask from HIM all the Goodies. Praise and Thank THE LORD, that lead us to know HIM. We are GOD’s chosen One. Lucky to be the Chosen One! Thank You The ALMIGHTY…

    Thank you Katherine for this devotional. It echoed my thoughts, especially the part of thinking as I get older, things should be less complicated. Thank you for the reminder to keep looking to Jesus the author and finisher of our faith, a present help in trouble and non trouble times.
    Blessings!
