I am so grateful, Father, for Your active presence in my life. Over the last several weeks I had been getting lax about our time together, some weeks it seemed that I was not here more often than I was here. But today marks day #15 – 15 days in a row that I have come and sat in this chair with Bible and notebook in hand. For me to be victorious in following You it is imperative that I consistently spend time with You. Even skipping one day can have a detrimental impact. So every day I step into Your presence and slip on the full armor You have given me so that I “will be able to resist the enemy in the time of evil.” So that “after the battle [I] will still be standing firm.” Ephesians 6:13

And, Lord, surely all the glory goes to You! Where would I be if You had not called out to me? I was so tired of living a defeated, powerless life. I cried out for help and You were right there, ready and more than able to meet my need. There is absolutely no way I could do it without You. Thank You, Jesus!

So today, with You by my side, I am ready! Fill my heart to over flowing with Your love, please Lord. Make me a conduit for Your grace to a world who needs You. Help me to be that contact point for You to touch those who cross my path. Give me wisdom, Give me courage, Give me strength! “For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength.” Philippians 4:13 Amen, so be it!
