This morning, when I went through a prayer journal from 2008, I was so blessed to see how God has worked over the past 4 years.  If you could hear me, imagine a loud SHOUT  “Hallelujah” Praise the Lord. 

I try to write in my journal daily. Well anyway, it is awesome to see God move in my heart and life through my true, desire to be changed and the support and encouragement of friends, new and previous (I avoided using the word OLD) : )   …..

Jan 2008, I am reading through the following prayer requests.   I prayed that God would help me to acquire a balanced life.


“Lord, my I seek You daily, with a healthy fear the Lord, that I would be still know You are God,,Give me what I need to love my family, number my days, that I may put on the Whole Armor of God required to guard my heart and mind in Christ Jesus. That I would do good, smile often, be obedient to seek and do Your will,  serving You and nothing more.  I pray that You will continue to take what You have begun in me and take it to perfect completion. 


It is my prayer that I will regard my stewardship responsibilities with diligence, taking care of what You have entrusted to my care, such as, marriage, family, my health, friendships, finances, mind and everything in between.  Help me to remember to express Thanks, to calculate the cost and take in all the blessings You have bestowed on me. There are many; home, family, 4 boys, a faithful, God fearing husband, the gift of being able to stay home and educate my boys, freedoms, friends, physical, mental and emotional health, Your creations and all its beauty, Your love, friendship, guidance, protection, peace, and the wonderful Holy Spirit, that You have chosen to deposit in my heart.


As You taught us to pray,  Matthew 6:9  “Our Father in heaven, Hallowed be thy name, Your Kingdom come, You will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.”  I acknowledge that Your Kingdom lives in my heart, You are bearing fruit in my life and giving me a beautiful testimony of Your faithfulness and sovereignty in my life. 


Help me to separate myself from the things that steal and produce death. Instead, give me a renewed mind that is focused on Your truth and fill me up to overflowing, so that I may speak life everywhere I go.  Thank you Lord, in Jesus name, amen.
