Something I wrote back in April

I struggle a lot and many times I struggle by myself. I often leave God out, follow my pride and try to solve things on my own. This is what I prayed in April.


Awaken the Holy Spirit in me. Fill my heart with your love and joy. Show me how to live in relationship with you and to set aside the things of this world. I ask that your death to pay for my sins so that I may live in your eternal kingdom. I pray for your will in my heart and my heart to be your will.

I will follow,

I turn back to my journal often to read this. It reminds me of the commitment Jesus made for me so that I can be whole in Him.

Today I said good bye to a friend. I know he is with the Lord but it hurts to know I won't get to talk with him again. I have learned an important lesson. Time is short. Make of your days the best you can. Reach out to someone daily. Love them as much as you can. Don't go to sleep angry.
