Journal Entry #24: A woman that prays

Image
Today, I learned about prayer. Prayer should be a part of every Christians' life. I hope to incorporate prayer into every aspect of my life.  A time in which I confess, offer praises and thanks to Your name. "A woman that prays daily."                                                                              6.25.11
My one desire is to be a woman of prayer.

I remember my first prayer request was that I would become a Christian, for God to tell my dad I loved him (he died when I young) and that I would move to New York. At that time, I was eight years old. I prayed with confidence, there was no doubt in my mind that God did not hear me. Then fast forward to middle and high school, I began to write out my prayers and set a time to pray for my family and friends. When I entered college, I would write my prayers to God daily.

You're too loved for that.


Bible Verse: 1 Corinthians 9:24-26

Don’t you know that all the runners in the stadium run, but only one gets the prize? So run to win.Everyone who competes practices self-discipline in everything.

I fight like a boxer in the ring, not like someone who is shadowboxing. CEB

Journal #23: When I'm hurt...

Image
Abba, I have been hurt and sad a lot this year. Many things have come to my attention, I have been lied to and talked about by people. I'm heartbroken by the way people have treated me. Abba, forgive me because I tend to treat people the way they treat me. But I know I should show respect to all people and see them as You see them (with love). 5/17/2011


During my high school and undergraduate years, I was put in circumstances that challenged me to forgive others. I have been taken advantage of, rejected, teased, seen abuse. When I was hurt, I wanted revenge, sometimes I would isolate myself, or lie to myself about being okay. I have learned since my younger years, positive ways to handle hurt. I would first admit, the pain I was feeling. Then, I asked God to help me forgive and love the person. And lastly, I began praying for the person and my own heart. The Lord has met me while I was in pain and I am sure He will meet you in your own pain and struggles.
