My prayer for anyone who reads this…

“When I think of all this, I fall to my knees and pray to the Father, the Creator of everything in heaven and on earth. I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit. Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.” – Ephesians 3:14-19

Amen.

Meditating on these verses today, and found them, simply put, beautiful and powerful. Was feeling a bit antsy earlier, and decided to come to the Word and be filled with His perfect peace. It worked. 🙂 I pray It works for you, too. 

Thank You, Lord, for being there for us at all times. You make everything beautiful. ❤

In Christ,

Remembering him…

These past couple of days, I’ve been thinking about Danny, more so now than usual. If you’ve just started following and don’t know who he is, I’ll say this: He was the man who brought me back to Christ. My best friend forever. The person who inspired me to follow Jesus. The person who’s cared for me more than anyone has ever cared. He passed away from cancer back in 2011, but still inspires and encourages me to this day. http://www.danielhaddad.org

So anyway, re-read his posts on his website, and his faith was just so amazing. What a beautiful man he was. What a beautiful Angel he is now.

Every time I think of him, this verse comes to mind:

“Remember your leaders who taught you the word of God. Think of all the good that has come from their lives, and follow the example of their faith.” – Hebrews 13:7

After he passed, I made a promise that I would follow in his footsteps, to feed my faith to starve all my fears to death. He was a real leader, a warrior, a child of God, loving, caring, funny, faithful. He trusted in Him all the way through, he finished the race, and kept the faith.

“But you, keep your head in all situations, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, discharge all the duties of your ministry. For I am already being poured out like a drink offering, and the time for my departure is near. I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day—and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing.” – 2 Timothy 4:5-8

I will never ever forget him. Love you, Dannyboy. Always in my heart.

Dear Lord,
Thank you for your daily Love and Grace. Thank You for every person you’ve put in our lives, for we know that there is a reason for everything that You do. Thank You for knowing exactly what and who we need exactly when we need it. You know us more than we could ever know ourselves, and we are certain that You work for the good of all of us. We trust in Your will, and totally surrender to You. Thank You, Lord, for the leaders You’ve put in our lives that have changed our lives one way or another. Father, we thank You for loving us, despite our sin. We ask that You keep us guarded in Your hands, safe, secure, warm, and may we be filled with Your spirit, so that one day we can be someone else’s Danny. We love You so much. All of this we pray in Jesus’ holy name, AMEN.

What about you? Have you had a person in your life who’s left an ever lasting mark in your heart? If so, how? Would love to hear your experiences!

God bless you.
