Prayer Journal: Day 14

Day 14

Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are just, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy — meditate on these things. – Phil. 4:8

I have been meditating a lot lately. 

I remember my meditation instructor, Coleen Camenisch, saying that meditation is like a gatekeeper. It observes the thoughts passing but doesn’t let them in.

The COVID-19 virus pandemic has caused closures that I have never seen in my lifetime. It is scary, but Jesus asks us not to be afraid.

He asks us to seek the truth. He asks us to look at the good reports, not just the bad ones. He wants us to be peaceful. So even though the times may be scary and other people may be in a panic, we have a savior who has already overcome the world and who can save us.

He will give us perfect peace. No matter what is going on and no matter how many businesses close, Jesus will renew us and He will come for us. Amen.

Prayer Journal: Day 12

Day 12

For I, the Lord your God, will hold your right hand, saying to you, ‘Fear not, I will help you.’ – Isaiah 41:13

The Lord is your helper. Even in the middle of the night when your mind won’t shut off, the Lord is there to help you.

One night I couldn’t sleep because I had the “Praise the Lord” song stuck in my head. I was playing it on YouTube for Jacob.

The Lord can help you let it go. All the worries don’t matter. He will help you. He will heal you. He will take away your grief and give you peace.

That is a promise. 

Claim it. 

Amen.
