Prayer Journal: Day 141

Day 141

My heart says of you, “Seek His face!” Your face, Lord, I will seek. – Psalm 27:8 NIV 

When we seek Jesus, the things of Earth will grow strangely dim.

What a glorious day it will be when we finally see the radiant face of Jesus!

Instead of a sad end to one way of life, seeing His face at the Second Coming will be a joyful occasion with someone we love and have waited for.

I don’t know when that day will come, and the Bible says that nobody knows the day nor the hour of Jesus’s Second Coming, but by having a daily relationship with our Savior, we don’t have to fear that day. It will be a good day.

Seeking His face on an ordinary day is like a meditative practice. Many things can distract us, but we can gently turn our attention back to Him. We can never go wrong when we turn our eyes upon Jesus. Amen.

Day 93

For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on His shoulders. And He will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. – Isaiah 9:6 NIV 

Jesus’ birth was cause for celebration. If He had a business card, He would have many titles. These names reveal something about His character. 

He counsels us. He is powerful. His love lasts forever. He is one with God the Father. He brings peace to the world. 

So often it feels like we don’t have peace. It takes mindfulness to understand where peace comes from, and instead of complaining, be thankful for the peace God gives us. He doesn’t want us to get into disputes with each other. He wants us to love one another the way He loves us. His peace is always available to us. Amen. 

Prayer Journal: Day 70

Day 70

The Word became flesh and made His dwelling among us. We have seen His glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth. – John 1:14

It’s hard to imagine that Jesus, being divine, came down to earth to die for our sins. Why did He have to die? Wasn’t there any other way to atone for our sins that would be less painful for our creator to bear? 

He died because He loves us more than life itself. He risked His immortality. The stakes were high. Jesus loves us more than we can even comprehend. 

When our thoughts turn to worries of the world, we can easily forget that we have a creator of the universe on our side. Nothing is too hard for God. Amen.

Day 20

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. – Heb. 13:8

It’s comforting to know that Jesus never changes. He always loves us and He always saves us.

Sometimes the people in our lives change, for better or for worse. They come and go from our lives. Former co-workers, friends, and even family members fall out of our lives and get replaced by other people. 

But Jesus never gets replaced. He is always in us and available when we need to talk.
