Dear Lord God,

Help me to ignore my weekness, and to rely on your strength; from minute to minute, day by day.

Amen

Dancing With God

When I meditated on the word Guidance, I kept seeing "dance" at the end of the word.

I remember reading that doing God's will is a lot like dancing.  When two people try to lead, nothing feels right.  The movement doesn't flow with the music, and everything is quite uncomfortable and jerky.  When one person realizes that, and lets the other lead, both bodies begin to flow with the music.  One gives gentle cues, perhaps with a nudge to the back or by pressing Lightly in one direction or another.  It's as if two become one body, moving beautifully.  The dance takes surrender, willingness, and attentiveness from one person and gentle guidance and skill from the other.

My eyes drew back to the word Guidance .

When I saw "G": I thought of God, followed by "u" and "i".  God, "u" and "i" dance."  God, you, and I dance.

As I lowered my head, I became willing to trust that I would get guidance about my life.  Once again, I became willing to let God lead.

My prayer for you today is that God's blessings and mercies are upon you on this day and everyday.  May you abide in God, as God abides in you.
Dance together with God, trusting God to lead and to guide you through each season of your life.

This prayer is powerful and there is nothing attached .... There is no cost but a lot of rewards; so let's continue to pray for one another.


And I Hope You Dance!

Prayer

The theme of our services today were both on Prayer ... and we started off the second service with one of my favourite hymns.  I learnt this while at school as the 3rd line of the 3rd verse was especially important to someone who was constantly bullied.

If you want to join me in singing the hymn again, although I will admit I was suprised to find 4 verses, as most hymn books only have the first 3, then the tune is here

What a Friend we have in Jesus, all our sins and griefs to bear!
What a privilege to carry everything to God in prayer!
O what peace we often forfeit, O what needless pain we bear,
All because we do not carry everything to God in prayer.

Have we trials and temptations? Is there trouble anywhere?
We should never be discouraged; take it to the Lord in prayer.
Can we find a friend so faithful who will all our sorrows share?
Jesus knows our every weakness; take it to the Lord in prayer.

Are we weak and heavy laden, cumbered with a load of care?
Precious Savior, still our refuge, take it to the Lord in prayer.
Do your friends despise, forsake you? Take it to the Lord in prayer!
In His arms He’ll take and shield you; you will find a solace there.

Blessèd Savior, Thou hast promised Thou wilt all our burdens bear
May we ever, Lord, be bringing all to Thee in earnest prayer.
Soon in glory bright unclouded there will be no need for prayer
Rapture, praise and endless worship will be our sweet portion there
.

The sermon section of the service brought up a few thoughts about prayer ... wish I could remember them all ... But here are a few -
  • God always answers prayer - Yes, No, or Wait.
  • If you ask, you will receive ... maybe not what you expect, but certainly what is best for you.
  • Your prayer will influence God ... Moses asked God not to destroy Israel, and God said He wouldn't.  Amazing to think that we can influence God with ur prayer.
  • God doesn't need our prayer - but wants us to want to speak to Him.
It is good to remember that we can speak directly to The Creator God.

May I always remember that God does answer - and provide us with opur needs, which are not necessarily our wants.

"If you grasp and cling to life on your terms, you'll lose it, but if you let that life go, you'll get life on God's terms"

"If you're content to be simply yourself, you will become more than yourself"


Luke 17 - 18 (The Mesage)

Dear Lord
You know what I am thinking of at this point ... help me to make peace with "it" and let my life move full on"
Amen
