Psalm 62:9-12

 

Dear Father, You are all-powerful and I trust in You. Help me remember that trusting in others to do what only You can do is pointless. Help me remember that humans are limited and all our abilities come from You. Let me never imagine that anything but Your plan is best for me. You know my heart. May I honor You alone today. #biblereadingplan#godisbiggerjournal

Jeremiah 10:10-16

Dear Father, thank you for being the one true God and everlasting King. Thank you for ruling and reigning on high and today I’m asking that you would help me to remember that You are ever in control. You created this world and you’ve never left it alone. You’ve established time and seasons and schedules by your wisdom. So Jesus, today I’m asking for help to embrace your plan right where I am. I know you created the heavens and I’m asking you to help me look to you for each step today. Amen. #biblereadingplan #godisbiggerjournal

I’ve been thinking about this tree. Because without the fiery sky behind it, I’m not sure that I would have noticed how gorgeous it is. I doubt that my husband would have stopped to take a pic if it weren’t for the storm clouds. Maybe the storm hovering over you or the fire lighting up your life is exactly what God wants to use to show off His beauty in and through you. Just like this tree. #praisehimanyway#preachingtomyownheart#godisbiggerjournal

Jeremiah 32:17-27

Not one thing. Healing your heart? He’s more than able. Providing a job? He’s got it all under control. Touching your loved one? He can do it. Cancer. Heart disease. Addiction. Personality disorders. Depression. Mental illness. Emotional scars. Whatever it is today, I hope you can remember that not a single thing is too hard for your God! #godisbiggerjournal#biblereadingplan

Revelation 4:8-11

 

 

God, you are worthy of all of the praise we can offer. Creation praises You. May my ears be sharp enough to hear it. May my eyes be focused enough to see it. May my heart receive and give all the glory to You and this prayer continually flow throughout the moments of this day. Amen. #godisbiggerjournal #biblereadingplan

Romans 1:16-25

Father, tune my heart to sing your praise today. For Your eternal power and divine nature always supersedes the cares of this world. One step in your creation reveals your awesome power and attention to details. Focus my heart on the ability to recognize your presence and your work. Amen. #godisbiggerjournal #biblereadingplan

  1. This was my first time here, and I really enjoyed reading what you posted! I loved the imagery you used with the fiery sky behind the tree. It really helps to see hardships and things from that beautiful perspective. I also thank you for the prayer you wrote thanking God for saving you from yourself, I’ve prayed that prayer many times, and I’ve never heard it prayed by someone else, but it helps to know that I’m not the only one.
    Jer 32 Nothing is too hard for You…..I really needed this encouragement right now, as I was not sure how I would receive the help i need to overcome my emotional/mental battles that I’ve struggled with for so long. Thank you so much for the work and effort you put into this! It is so helpful!!

    1. Blessings to you Tamara! Thank you for the kind words. I pray that you continue to find encouragement in the Lord!

  2. I love the verses this week about God’s power…..

    I have been in a relationship and engaged to a man who has severe disabilities – OCD, and Narcissism.

    I believe that is He would surrender himself to God, by His power, He can change Him to be a new creation.

    Please pray for Terry- God wants me to love him and I do…. but without change in his life- it is impossible to see this marriage going through.

    Thank you
