The truth will set you free. Jesus is the way, the truth and the life.
Thank You Father God, for exposing the lies buried deep within – lies that say that to need is greedy, ungrateful and selfish. Thank You for showing me the truth that You want me to learn to know and express my needs, that You care about meeting all of my needs and that You want me to bring all of my needs, concerns, cares, burdens and desires to You – for You promise to listen, to guard my heart and mind and to provide all of my needs.
Lord, You are faithful and true to Your promise.
Blessed be God forever.
Here I want to give thanks publicly for the prayers that God has heard, and that I have seen answers to during the month of October: –
I thank you for Your perfect timing in allowing K to take her neck-brace off, to drive again and for giving her a new home to move to.
For opportunities to minister to C and to speak Your truth and her song and for strengthening her to say Yes to You.
For meeting L’s needs at the funeral of her brother.
For letting R get the job.
For a fabulous last week on the course and for enrolling me on part 2 – for giving me hope, tools, freedom and my song.
For wonderful growth and fellowship in our Home Group.
For healing in C and in our relationship.
For a fun and delightful show night at the theatre.
For some extra work in pre-school, which is a blessing financially and to my heart.
For ‘ephaphtha’ – for opening my ears to hear You and dispelling confusion.
For our joint service with Renaissance Church and for the exciting work You are doing for Your glory here in Carlton.
For taking this beautiful woman of faith home to dance in freedom with Jesus.
For an amazing response to half-term lunch-club, the dedication of the team and the grace You have shown to enable us to serve over 300 lunches.
For the chances to connect with R, C, J and for a lovely sleepover with my grandchildren.
For PG’s kindness to solve my problem and strip all the plaster off.
For the commitment of our Alpha guests and the work You are doing in our hearts.
For Your promise that he who asks, receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.
For the opportunity to re-watch all the wonderful EH course videos and consolidate the learning.
For the kindness of the team at Specsavers and the gift of soothing eye-drops.
For showing me that Your sheep CAN hear Your voice.
The song in my ears this week has been
“No fear of death, no scheme of man, can ever pluck me from Your hand; till He returns, or calls me home, here in the grace of God I stand.’
God is as close to you as the air you breathe and is more faithful and loving than you can ever imagine. Trust Him with all of your concerns, prayers, needs, hopes and desires and He will guard your heart and give you divine rest and peace.
