When I open my She Reads Truth Bible, there’s an introduction to Genesis, towards the end of it, states: “All of our brokenness begins here, in the first book of the Bible, as does God’s covenant to redeem His people.” Woah, buddy. The reminder that where our brokenness begins so does Your redemption is much needed, daily. The very places we are broken lead to where we are redeemed, where we can then help others find redemption too. Bless, that’s powerful. Thank You Lord.

But sometimes God wants us to trust that He’s not surprised by anything. He planned each twist and turn in our lives and He wants to walk through them with us, if we’ll let Him.”
Lord, in every place I’m reading lately, it’s telling me to trust and obey. You will provide.
Genesis 18:14 says: ‘Is anything impossible for the Lord?’ At the appointed time I will come back to you, and in about a year she will have a son.
I am literally nothing without You, Lord. I can accomplish nothing without You, Father. And thank You God, I am not alone. Even on my best day, I could never amount to a hill of beans compared to what You can do through me. I just need to learn how to stop working against You. I needed this past year to learn how to be still.
Lord, I feel You sending me. I am not sure where I’m going, but Lord, my feet are moving. Guide me Father. Isaiah 58:11 says: The LORD will always lead you, satisfy you in a parched land, and strengthen your bones. You will be like a watered garden and like a spring whose water never runs dry.
This past Sunday, the pastor taught on Deuteronomy 30:1-10. He said: “You are not crazy for this. This is not outside the box. This is predetermined by God. God will be glorified in you. There is help for you.” He said: “Believe in Christ and He will do this through you. Jesus has secured us in His Kingdom.” You are faithful, even when we aren’t. The cross is our guarantee. We don’t have to be afraid of the outcome. You got this. Literally. And You’ve got me.
So, here is my prayer. Lord, I pray that I follow your word. I pray I come to my senses. I pray I go where you are driving me. I pray I obey your commands. I pray I obey with all my heart and all my soul. I pray I trust you. I pray I keep my eyes focused on the cross. Thank you so much for using me. Thank you for designing this greater plan than I could even imagine. Thank you for your glory. Thank you for providing. Thank you for securing me. Thank you for teaching me. Thank you for showing me the way. Thank you for sending your son for me. Thank you for taking my place. And as always I pray for my family and sorority sisters. I pray for my university. I pray for guidance for our government, church, and school leaders. I pray for protection for our troops. I pray for all of those that need you now and for those that haven’t met you yet. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
