My Heart Hurts
Dear God, the one who holds my head up high, the one that loves me even though I am undeserving. You are good. Help me hold onto that on the days that I hurt.
You are the one and only who has never left my side, though I complain when they leave mine. Oh, my heart hurts to think about how you feel! I hear you when you tell me to “be still and know that you are God.”
I am done choosing people over you, my God. Please hold onto my heart. Please let no one, not even myself, hurt it anymore to the point of losing hope. I am begging you to hold it close to yours until you and I are ready to give it to someone.
John 14:27 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.
2 Corinthians 12:9-10 But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
Above The Hurt And Pain
Lord, You have blessed me beyond what I deserve. Please help me love you first. Above anger, above pride, above rage, above attention, above love, above doubt, above money, above people, above work, above school, above the church, above everything.
I would not have anything if it was not for you providing every step of the way. Help me remember this.
You love me with all your heart.. this is standing out to me more than anything.. I want to love others just like you love us, undeserving. Even when I get hurt.
Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.
1 Corinthians 10:13 No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.
Be Strong In The Lord
Help me stand up once again and be strong in you, Lord and keep pushing through the hurt and pain.
- If I can love people with all my heart, how much more can you love us?
- You hold the waters in the palm of your hands, how much more can you hold onto us?
- If you can heal and save the murders from their shame and guilt.., can’t you do that for me?
You have every single one of my days planned out right in front of you and I pray that someday I can see myself the way you see me.
May I not waste any more days being too sad, worried, or confused about the past. I only strive to look forward to all the blessings you God has in store for me. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen!
Revelation 21:4 He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.
Hebrews 4:16 Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
