Turn to HIM

 

Lord,

We turn to you Lord for the hope of tomorrow when today seems to drown us in despair.

We turn to you Lord when yesterday is gripping our hearts, hindering us from seeing your hand today.

We turn to you Lord when everything is going wrong and nothing will dry the tears.

We turn to you Lord we’ve prayed a million prayers for our child to draw near.

We turn to you Lord when we can’t even lift our head or utter a word.

We turn to you Lord to make us aware of the daily blessings you surround us with.

We turn to you Lord to thank you for the strength you give us daily

We turn to you Lord to praise you for the glorious gift of the Cross

We turn to you Lord to sing praises when the darkness ends

We turn to you Lord to thank you for the protection that just sheltered us from harm

We turn to you Lord to give thanks for the loved one that has returned to you

We turn to you Lord to show our heart of gratitude for the good that keeps us renewed, for the bad that strengthens our faith and the millions of things in between that remind us to keep praising and adoring you.

 

Father, may we stay so close to your side that all we have to do is turn to you and whisper a faint cry for help or whisper praises through the tears of joy you bring.  May our hearts never get so wrapped up in the hustle and bustle of life that we go a single day unaware of the gifts that you’ve poured out on us. May we praise you daily and spend time in the Word while loving and adoring you. May we always be aware of you, by our side, in Jesus precious name Amen.

 

What are you turning to HIM for?

The bad only?  The good only?


Faithfully turn to HIM in everything!

    What a beautifull prayer, I don’t understand what unbelievers cling to?
    To be able to walk in the depth of night without fear knowing that OUR FATHER and THE LORD JESUS CHRIST will guide the true believer gives me such a sense of peace that it is only one who knows THE CHRIST can experience.

    • Peter, i just realized that I never replied to you.

      thank you so much for taking the time to read and then comment. I’m with you – i know that the unexplained peace that just flows over me is from the Lord and have no clue what others do.

      thank you – again!

      have fun spreading God’s joy!
