Sweet friends, we must pray with confidence in our Sweet Father’s ability to do anything and believing in full faith that our sweet Father in Heaven longs to answer and provide the purest desires of our heart!
Do not pray in fear, instead pray in confidence. In our minds and hearts we must release Him from whatever box we have tried to build around Him and place all confidence, trust, belief, faith in Him.
We might watch the news, see the homeless, see the refugees, see the slaves or look in the mirror and see our greed, see our sin and then for a moment teeter on the brink of despair, but look up, look up and see Him, the biggest, bravest, strongest and most amazing Father who knows it is all worth it, everything is worth it… and then smile as the sweet Holy Spirit renews our confidence in Him.
Thank You sweet Father for everything, thank You sweet Holy Spirit for our renewed confidence and faith moment by moment, thank You sweet Jesus for being YOU!
When I was young I played tennis and I had a coach who once told me to be confident. He said to hold my head high and walk a little slower when changing sides between games. I always remembered this and since that conversation I have tried to do hold my head high, walk slow and have confidence in myself.
As I was running today I was thinking about how nice it is to hold your head high. It gives you such a different perspective and view as you walk or run through life.
When you look down most of the time you see more of the man-made things, shoes, pants, streets, side walks, cars, tires. When you hold your head high you can see more of what God has made, the eyes of others, flowers, birds, trees and even the sky in your peripheral vision.
I want to keep holding my head high, but I am going to try to change the reasoning behind it. I don’t want to hold my head high anymore in confidence, pride, or superiority.
I want to hold my head high so that I can keep God in sight!
Jesus, thank you for the beautiful and natural things that fill our world and surround even our man-made things with your beauty. Please help us to always keep You in our sight!
