Lord help me this week to be an example of your love to the people you have placed in my life. Help me to live each day in such a way that others want to know You because they know me. Help me to love unconditionally. Help me Lord to care for the people you have entrusted to me as precious gifts to be cherished and nurtured. Help me to be a good steward of my time, money, and resources. Help me to live this week like a woman who has been freed from the bondage of sin and has been promised eternity in Heaven with You. Help me to let go of the past. Help me to forgive and, where appropriate, forget. Convict me of thoughts, desires, and behaviors that do not bring you glory. Help me Lord, help me become a women that does not have to tell the world that I am a Christian. Help me become a woman whose life is a reflection of Your grace. Help me become a woman whose words are a reflection of Your love. Help me become a woman whose actions are a reflection of Your mercy. Oh God! More than anything I want the world around me to see You in me!
This was the prayer on my heart when I woke up this morning. I used it to open the week on the FLO ministry blog as well. So many times, I get sideways because I think I should be doing something "big" for God. This seems to be a recurring theme with me these days. Again, I am confessing my unrest and asking forgiveness and asking God to give me patience while I till the soil He has planted me in.
Help me Lord to be a reflection of You where ever I am.
