I have become complacent to the Lord's desires in my life. I have drifted from prayer. I seek what Lisa wants rather than what He wants. I have left no space for him to speak. As I prepare for Christmas and the New Year I want to declutter my heart, mind, and home to leave space for him. I want to seek him first in all situations.
At supper with a friend last week I was reminded that no situation is too big or small to ask for God's guidance.
Kids ask to do something that makes me uneasy - pray.
A possible career change at work - pray.
Needing reassurance as I wash a sink of dishes - pray.
Discerning how we should spend Christmas - pray.
Working through the loss of a loved one - pray.
Tired - pray.
When I am at my wits end or filled with joy help me to remember that You are all knowing and loving. You will provide me with what is needed for the day if I seek you first and me last. Make room, Lord.
With love and prayer,
I'm Lisa, a farm wife turned city slicker. A child of God, wife and mother. I'm a dreamer relying on God's grace to get me through.
