Good Morning Gorgeous,
It’s a brand new day. A fresh start. We get a new one every morning. Every day is another chance to make a conscious turn from yesterday and begin anew today.
Today is a new day to draw close to the favor and provision that has been made available to you through Jesus..
You can talk to Him like a trusted Friend, a loving Papa, a sweet Savior.
You can approach Him with the secrets of your heart. There’s no holding back from God. He knows it all anyway, but as you speak to Him candidly and REAL. When you tell Him your fears. Your struggles. Your current situation. Your joys and your sorrows. Your pain. Your excitement. When you pour your heart out in prayer, something shifts in you. God has been there all along, but as you draw near to Him, He draws even closer to you. He inclines His ear to you. He listens. He strengthens. He fortifies you for a new day. If you rise feeling weak, tell Him. If you rise with heaviness on your chest, tell Him. If you are looking forward to the day ahead, telllllll Him!
As you pour your heart out to the One who created it, you will discover that things become clear, fog rises, strength comes, heaviness lifts, and what felt incomplete in you becomes complete.
You can approach Him with your needs like a child. You are His beloved child. Just as a father yearns to hear from His child, so the Father yearns to hear you come to Him with what is on your heart. Tell Him everything you need. Tell Him about the spiritual ache in your heart. Tell Him about the physical pain in your body. Tell Him about the recent argument with a friend that has you weary and anxious. Tell Him why you are afraid, and let Him assure you that He has it all handled. Because He does.
You can approach Him with the awe and gratitude that you would give to someone who saved your life. He has plucked me right from the mire. The Lord has taken me from out of Egypt, through the wilderness, and into promised land. I am awestruck by Him. And He saves me from my mind daily. Daily, I turn to Him and ask for help with renewing my thoughts to align with His Word. I ask Him to come into my heart and my home and do what only He can do. I am in awe that He chose to leave Heaven for me. As I pray, I am in awe of the sacrifice made on my behalf. A sacrifice of love so that I may live and not die.
The beautiful news is this same God who is my friend, my Father, and my Savior is yours too! He has many many more facets, many that aren’t even discovered yet. These three are a good place to begin when relating to the Lord. He is not some mystical, far away Lord who is out of touch and uninterested.
He is the all powerful, mighty King and Creator over the whole earth who is ALSO interested and invested in EVERY fine detail of your life. He cares so much for details that your hairs are counted and numbered by Him.
Turn and talk to Him today. He is waiting to hear from you.
Dear Heavenly Father, You love us with an everlasting love. A love that is hard to comprehend. Help us to relate to You as our Lord, Father, Creator, Friend, Savior, gentle Shepherd, Mighty King, and so much more. Help us to walk in love today. In Jesus’s name, Amen.
I pray you are blessed and filled with all you need today!!
