Nothing matters more than You LORD. You are the example. You have walked the narrow path and paved the way for all those who follow You. Help me remember what Your life on earth looks like in truth. In the midst of all the stuff, voices, opportunities, desires, expectations, responsibilities, and cares of life; let Your Word be the lamp and light.
Help me see You as clearly as possible. Please let Your Presence be my treasure and pursuit. Let me aim for the bulls eye and target of You.
Let me be ok with the difficulties of the narrow road. Let me imitate You each time i face a challenge or an obstacle. Let me find and seek comfort in You as the Comforter rather than any temporal thing this world could present as pleasure over pain. You endured a cross, it’s more than ok for me to carry one as well.
I’m not asking for what’s common or popular I’m asking for what’s Biblical and pleasing to You. Help me mount up on those wings like an eagle and soar to the mountain of communion with You.
My mission is to love You and live in You. Draw me closer. In Jesus Name Amen
