Dear Lord...

...Things have been crazy lately, Lord. I've felt lost and helpless in many situations. There are points when I want to give up and then high moments when I want to conquer the world. I know that I am only one person and I can only do what you give me the strength to accomplish. Please forgive me of the sins I've failed you daily... help me to be a better wife, mother, daughter, friend and mentor. I long to live out the plan you have for my life. I know you are teaching me through each step I take and each situation and opportunity you place before me. Help me to live for you and only you... to yearn to please you and not others. In the areas I have to work on please guide me and give me strength to glorify you!

So much hurt is going on in the world right now... family and friends going through health issues and hard times. Please be with the Rajala family and precious little Lily... we know you have your hand on this situation and you have a divine plan for her life. Please heal her and allow your light to shine through out their situation. Be with the doctors and give them wisdom as to the best methods to take! Please be with the families of the lives lost in all of the tornadoes last week. We can never understand why these things happen but we know that you have it all under control.

I love you so much Lord and I thank you for never giving up on me... thank you for all of the many blessings you've given us and please continue to teach and grow us in our ministry. In your precious name. Amen!

“You give me your shield of victory, and your right hand sustains me; you stoop down to make me great.” Psalm 18:35
