Fix your eyes on God, the author and the finisher of our faith…
I am naturally an anxious person, it doesn’t take much for me to get anxious, and I hate being anxious.
But this morning as I was praying, I had my eyes shut and pacing back and forth in my room as I spoke to God. I uttered these few words, “God say something to me this morning, what would you have me know. Talk to your daughter daddy” I continued speaking in tongues. ( A prophet I respect once said when in prayer, we ought pray in tongues more than we do words!…But, tongues is topic for another day)
As I continued making prayer, the spirit of the Lord prompted me to open my eyes, of which I did. To my surprise, on the mat that I had been walking, thorns where scattered all over.Mind you, I only have my socks on and I was like ‘ Lord, what is this? ’… God says to me, “Your anxiety is as a result of your lack of focus on ME!”
I had been praying, focused on God; Unaware of all that surrounded me, unbothered, not anxious, because my eyes where fixed. I walked freely, I stepped everywhere, unaware of what was on the floor, my focus was not shifted I was in the presence of God. ( I cannot assume the thorns appeared supernaturally, and I surely will not ridicule the possibility of that occurrence. But from that, God bought something to light…)
I fell to my knees and prayed all the more, as the Lord placed this is my heart. I felt the anxiety melt of my shoulders as I released everything to God.
The power of prayer, huh!
One author once wrote “Where a person starts powerfully shapes where he or she finishes”.
Starting off each day with prayer, inviting God into your day ensures you finish grand.
God has us; in all that we do, He just needs to hear us say “daddy, it’s me your daughter, Speak to me”
Dear 1st Daughters,
“Be careful for nothing: but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God” –Philippians 4:6
Start your day with a focus and surrender to God…He has you!
Stay focused on the one who matters,
