Do you know what it is to long for something MORE in your life and not know what or who it is you need to truly satisfy that feeling inside of you?

Do you know of a thirst and hunger that is so great that NO amount of food can satisfy?

Do you know how many people go to sleep at night FULL of sorrow and so much pain that the longing within them is just so much that only tears can release the pressure inside?

Do you know that ALL we have to do to address that longing, hunger and thirst is to look up and speak to the Almighty God and invite Him into our hearts and lives?

Do you know that the only thing keeping us stuck in these periods of longing and hunger is our unwillingness to accept there is more to us that what we see and know?

Every day we choose to just go through the motions of our everyday existence we deny ourselves our God-given inheritance because of fear, doubt, lies and stubbornness

Today, let us CHOOSE to embrace a difference path.  Let us choose to LOOK UP and SPEAK OUT.

Heavenly Father, as we come before today we thank you for this new day that only You could have created. We acknowledge all of our imperfections and wrong doing and ask that You forgive us for our stubbornness. 

Help us, Oh Lord! to make the changes we need in our lives so we can be free from the longing, thirst and hunger that has eluded us for so long. 

As we read these words, I believe that God will START the work in us that only He can do to bring us a sense of peace and joy that we have never known before Him.

Create in me Oh Lord, a spirit that hunger and thirst for You.

Create in me Oh Lord, a spirit that actively seeks You.

Create in me Oh Lord, a tongue that speaks life, promotion, positivity, prosperity and peace.

Create in me Oh Lord, a heart that is free from evil, resentment, hatred, jealousy and envy.

Create in me Oh Lord, a mind that is at peace with itself and You Oh Lord. 

Create in me Oh Lord, all of these things so that I can experience Your mercy, favour, blessing, healing, love, protection and guidance in every aspect of my life.

Let Your light shine within me so bright that darkness has no option but to retreat NEVER to return.

Let Your joy and love fill every corner of my being so that I NEVER forget that You are with me always.

Let Your peace comfort me when I feel weary or scared. 

Thank you Lord for never giving up on me. I receive all of these blessings. In Jesus name. Amen.

May God continue His work in us each and every day.

As I go, I leave you with this message: Although we would never be perfect we CAN become better than we are right now but we have to WORK on it. Put your trust in God for everything and He WILL see you through.

Thank you for making this blog one of your stops on this journey called life.
