“Look. This coal has touched your lips. Gone your guilt, your sins wiped out. “And then I heard the voice of the Master: “Whom shall I send? Who will go for us? “I spoke up, “I’ll go. Send me!” -Isaiah 6 (Message)
Lord, help me to stand strong. Help me to live a life that is a witness for You, both publicly and privately. Help me to stand on Your Word and proclaim it. Help me to remember how much You love me. You have plans to prosper me–plans that are for good and not disaster. When I am down, You pick me up. When I am weak, You are my strength. When I am afraid, You are my comfort. When there is nowhere else to turn, You are right there waiting for me.
“For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.” -Ephesians 6:12 (NLT)
“For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.” – Jeremiah 29:11
If you are feeling down, alone, afraid, like you have no hope, just remember that God loves you and that He care deeply for you. He desires for you to give your hurts, disapointments, insecurity, hoplessness, fright, etc. to Him. He will take it all away and give you peace and assurance.

God, make Yourself real to me. Transform my life in a mighty way. Change me from who I am today, and make me into who You desire for me to be. I am not perfect. I mess up all of the time. Even though You do not like for me to disobey, You still love me unconditionally. Your love never fails me. Your love is perfect and pure. I can always count on you to be there for me. Even when I let go of your hand, You never let go of mine; Your hand stills holds tight. Thank You for Your love!
Let us know; let us press on to know the Lord;
his going out is sure as the dawn;
he will come to us as the showers,
as the spring rains that water the earth.
