Blessings


Oh thank you Lord for our many blessings. How many times have I prayed this? Nice house, good food, beautiful yard, new truck, so much stuff. Blessings? Sure these things are good, but is this what we pray about? I am truly burdened with the substance of my prayers. Father please give me strength and courage and guide me to be your hands and feet. Give me heart for service and feet for service. Equip me through your Word, fight for me Lord against the powers that would hold me comfortable in the nice house and the nice yard and the air conditioning. My heart breaks for the hurt it must be for you to see me in comfort wishing that everyone else was blessed with comfort. Father the more I step out the more I have hardship and discomfort, that is how I know I am going in the right direction. Today afresh I put on the full armor of God. Eph. 6:14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. Forgive me Father for not using the tools that you have so graciously provided. This is the true blessing, that each day is new and your blessing are fresh again. I love you Lord. Your child Ty
