Prayer Journal: Day 85

Day 85

Speak to one another with psalms, hymns and spiritual songs. Sing and make music in your heart to the Lord, always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. – Ephesians 5:19-20

The Lord asks us to share our faith with others. I often text Bible verses or share Scriptures to social media.

In years past, I was too shy to share my faith. I figured that leading by example was enough, but the more I see God working in my life, the more I want to share the good news! Our God is an awesome God! I am thankful for the many blessings He has given me. He has gotten me through hard times. He restores my soul. He guides me and counsels me. I can always count on Him.

When I play hymns on the piano, I praise Him. His love endures forever. I am blessed to be able to play the piano. Not everyone has parents who gave them allowance for piano lessons. 

During a visit to Italy a few years ago, I had an interesting conversation with a cab driver. I had mentioned to him that I could play classical piano. He said that I was a lucky girl. I hadn’t realized how lucky I was to have studied music and to have learned to play an instrument, because not everyone can afford to. It is a gift I am thankful for. 

It’s my hope that when I play praise songs and post the videos to YouTube, people will be able to hear God’s voice through the music. Butterflies and stage fright aside, it makes me happy when I can praise God through music and share with others. Amen.

Prayer Journal: Day 80

Day 80

On the last and greatest day of the Feast, Jesus stood and said in a loud voice,  “If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me, as the Scriptures has said, streams of living water will flow from within him.” By this He meant the Spirit, whom those who believed in Him were later to receive. – John 7:37-39

God fills our lives with incredible blessings. He saves us from wildfires. He makes sure we have a safe place to live. He guides and protects us.

The Holy Spirit is in us and with us, and He guides us wherever we go. It is a gift.

We can be grateful for the many blessings God has bestowed upon us. We are lucky, indeed, to have a Savior who cares so much about us. He opens up good opportunities in our lives. Amen.
