At All Times

I’m in a season of hard. Hard circumstances. Hard decisions. Hard emotions. Hard outcomes. And I have heard from many of my friends that they are in hard seasons as well. Hard marriages. Hard friendships. Hard parenting. Hard careers.

I thought about what I wanted to offer all of you in this space. I decided that there needed to be more than my pretty words. I want you to carve out a few minutes of this day and abide in the embrace of the Holy Spirit. I want you to sit under words of life spoken to your heart and I want to create an atmosphere for you to rest in His presence and hear our good, good Father sing over you.

Only the promises of Christ can bring hope, healing, joy, and comfort to dry and broken places.

 

Father,

I entrust You to bring those who are in hard seasons to this bit of online community. Prepare their hearts to receive from You. May they lay aside every sin and hindrance that keeps them from hearing You clearly. Give them eyes to see and ears to hear Your still small voice. You are ready and willing to come and meet every need and heal every hurt. We trust You beyond what we can see. We believe that You are at work in the unseen places. Quiet every lie form our flesh, those around us and the enemy of our souls. Jesus, we give You permission to come and move in power and might. Holy Spirit, come and do what only You can do! Unrest, despair, brokenness and hopelessness must leave in the name of Jesus. I release supernatural peace, healing, rest, joy and hope over every daughter. You, God are good and faithful at all times, in all circumstances. Have Your way…whatever that looks like, whatever the time frame. We yield to Your purposes. They are for our good and for Your glory. We yield to Your timing. It is perfect. May we learn to navigate the rhythms of life led by Your Spirit and seek out times of refreshing so that we do not become weary.

We lean into Your grace that covers us in hard seasons. We say to our souls that we trust You at all times.

I seal all of these promises in the holy name of Jesus.

Amen and Amen. 

 

 

“I will bless the Lord at all times;
His praise shall continually be in my mouth.” Psalm 34:1

David reminds us that it is our choice to bless the Lord despite…

Our circumstances.

Our emotions.

Other voices.

This moment of spontaneous worship by Steffany Gretzinger of Bethel Music  often finds itself on repeat. I need to be reminded to bless the Lord at all times, especially during hard seasons.

    Amen. Thanks so much for sharing. One day at a time, One step at a time, One foot in front of the other. May our eyes always be fixed on Jesus, and May he give us peace that truly transcends all understanding, through all of our ups and downs. May the joy of the Lord always be our strength. Hugs & Blessings to you!
