I’m trying Father. You know I am. You know my heart. Help me to be more focused so that I can stop procrastinating, get more work done, and worry less. Turn me from the negativity that consumes me. Show me other ways to stand up against the evils of the world, rather than fall for the tricks that will have me wallowing in the gunk of misery. Strengthen me Lord so that I’m better prepared for this battle field. Turn my eyes, mind, and heart towards You Father. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
We believe in the power of wind, water, heat, and sound. We have no doubt that they can help to heal, and their power can also bring much harm. Water is cleansing, hydrating and nurturing. We have faith in this fact. A flood of water can bring devastation. We don’t doubt this one bit. Wind can provide us energy, cools us off on a hot day, clears the impurities in the air, and helps to spread seeds for pollination. Wind at high speeds can also destroy buildings, homes, property, and lives. We can all agree on these points. There’s no need to break down the capabilities of heat and sound. I believe you get the point. We know the power of these sources. We know what they can do. We trust and believe that wind, water, heat, and sound will not fail. Yet, we doubt God…the Creator of all four things. Imagine that. We have a lot of work to do to realign our thinking and actions. We cannot continue to place more faith in the creations than we do the Creator.
