IT’S NOT TOO LATE

DECEMBER 6

Do not throwaway your confidence; it will be richly rewarded. (Hebrews 10:35 NIV)

Are you discouraged? Do you feel like giving up? If so, read the following words and make them your prayer today.

“God, I’ve done everything I know to see my dreams come true. I’ve had seasons of working hard and seasons of’ letting go and letting God’; still, the things I’ve believed for seem like they’ll never happen.

“I feel like Sarah-I’Il never hold the one thing I long for most. God, don’t let me miss my destiny. Don’t let me hope for things that are not part of Your plan for my life. Let me hear Your voice guiding me, reassuring me, and telling me You love me.”

“Give me a fresh glimpse of Your promise to me, so that I can fight with faith and take hold of it. Help me also to understand the difference between what I must go after and what I must wait on You for. When it’s up to me, give me the strength to demolish doubt and march fearlessly into the new day You’ve prepared for me. When it’s up to You, give me grace and patience to wait; fill me with the joyful anticipation that accompanies a perfectly timed present.”

“Lord, they say that You are never, ever late. So in these days of waiting, when time seems endless, keep me firm in my faith. Don’t let me stop short of my blessing.”

“REMIND ME AGAIN THAT I MUST NOT THROW AWAY MY CONFIDENCE, FOR IT WILL BE RICHLY REWARDED! AMEN.”

 

Mirror, mirror on the wall

Do you have to tell it all?

Where do you get the glaring right

To make my clothes look just too tight?

I think I’m fine but I can see

you won’t cooperate with me;

The way you let the shadows play

You’d think my hair was getting gray

 

What’s that, you say? A double chin?

No, that’s the way the light comes in;

If you persist in peering so

You’ll confiscate my facial glow,

 

And then if you’re not hanging straight

You’ll tell me next I’m gaining weight;

I’m really quite upset with you

For giving this distorted view;

 

I hate you being smug and wise ~

O, look what’s happened to my thighs!

I warn you now, O mirrored wall,

Since we’re not on speaking terms at all,

 

If I look like this in my new jeans

You’ll find yourself in smithereens!!
