`Six Steps to 35...

It’s 6 days to 35.

I’m typing with no idea of what to write today. The power of creating… having empty canvases and given the opportunity to paint the pictures of outcomes. Situations come up and then the power of speech comes to play… we speak where we want to be. Of course, we work towards it, because faith without works… 

I’ve lived answered prayers… forgotten prayers. We entered a new decade this year, and I picked up a journal from ten years ago (see the importance of journals) and I was full of thanks, reading my words then, and seeing the events that happened in ten years… and where I am right now. I am in answered prayers. 

I’ve learned to be careful about what I pray for… because God does answer prayers. O my! He does. And our answers don’t come like we expect, but they are the answer… things are orchestrated and sometimes, we don’t see them as pleasant experiences, but they’re leading us on the path to our prayers. I’m learning not to despair much about certain things… because I see my prayers, a trace of my prayers in the pattern being cut out. God hears and He answers in the best possible ways. He would train us on our way to the promised land… so we can enjoy our answers when we arrive there. 

So much for not knowing what to write. Hahhahahaha… it’s weird writing out my laugh… I just tried laughing out loud to see if it sounded anything like what I wrote… I really can’t say if it does or now. I can feel the power of God resting heavily on me as I write. I love it when it comes on me this way. It gets embarrassing though, especially when I just cry from the overwhelming love, joy and all the goodness it covers me with. Such a sweet loving father.

There’s a song by Kari Jobe I love, it’s called “The More I Seek You” and It goes like this… 
I wanna sit at your feet
Drink from the cup in your hand.
Lay back against you and breath, feel your heart beat
This love is so deep, it's more than I can stand.
I melt in your peace, it's overwhelming…”

35… I want more of this. More of God and to bask more in His presence. I want to have more pleasant experiences in His love. And I know that’s what it’s going to be like for me. 35… more answered prayers. Living in the fullness of all I’ve hoped for. In beauty, in love, in grace and in the goodness of God. 

Scripture for today is from Psalm 31:21 “Blessed be the LORD, For He has shown me His marvelous kindness in a strong city!”

Indeed, I have seen God’s marvelous kindness in strong cities… or besieged cities as some translations put it. City represents different situations in life. In the city of finance, relationships, career, ministry and even physical cities… I have seen the goodness of God in the land of the living, and I will yet see even more of His goodness, and His kindness delivering me from every oppression. This is my testimony in my new year. 

Say this with me “Thank you Lord for showing me your marvelous kindness in a strong city. I am not at a disadvantage because your grace has favored me and delivered me from every opposition and threat to my peace. Amen.”
