Renewed Purpose!

I am sitting here the day after my birthday feeling a renewed sense of purpose. I desire to be all that God wants me to be! I don’t want to hold myself back with my own limited expectations. I want to live out GOD’S expectations of me.

LORD, I place myself in Your hands! Empower and Anoint me for the days ahead to be Your vessel of “love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control…”.

May You be honored in everything I say and do. Forgive me, Father, where I have fallen short! Manifest Your purposes in and through me, O LORD!!

I’m willing…I’m ready! I stand with an open heart, an open spirit, an open mind, and arms opened wide! Fill all of me with YOU, LORD!

I worship and adore You!!

Thankfulness!

May we overflow with thankfulness!!  As we live for Him, focused on Him, rooted and built up in Him – we will indeed find ourselves strengthened in our faith as He lives through us – transforming us to be more and more like Him!!

[vision].  I see a tree (us) with strong roots growing into rich, life-giving soil (Jesus).  I see healthy, strong, beautiful fruit (fruit of the Spirit) covering the tree.

May others be drawn to Jesus by the fruit that is evident in our lives!

I am THANKFUL!!!
