You're NOT created to be STUCK.
YOU'RE CREATED TO MOVE!
Ready to move away from a self-defeating mindset and move towards all God has for you in life, love, and purpose?
Do you find yourself:
Not feeling good enough - like you'll never measure up?
Constantly stuck with the same struggles in life?
Confused with knowing your value and who you truly are?
Wondering if whether or not you're worth it?
At your wit's end and ready to just give up?
When He Stands In The Dark With You
Christmas has a funny way of magnifying whatever’s happening in your life:
If you’re in a good place – the lights seem brighter and more twinkly.
If you’re in a hard place – the darkness seems to set in, engulfing your very soul.
For those of you who are in a dark place this Christmas, I want to encourage you, Jesus is standing in the dark with you. No matter where you are, how you got there, or how lonely you feel, you’re not alone.
He’s Standing In The Dark With You
Can I pray a Christmas prayer over you? Over those of us who feel the darkness setting in, trying to engulf our very soul?
Firstly, thank you for coming to this earth – thus creating the whole point of Christmas.
I know you came to stand in the dark with us. To eventually enter into utter darkness – the darkness of Hell itself – on our behalf. I know you came here, just to die for a world that was engulfed in our own darkness.
LORD, I pray for those of us who are hurting. Who are standing in the darkness we’ve created for ourselves, or the darkness created by another, or even the darkness created by circumstances we couldn’t control.
I pray your kingdom would rain down on us like snow flakes of golden jewels falling from the sky – causing LOVE itself to come down on us – right where we are.
Help us to look up where our help truly comes from.
Just as Your Word says,
As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it. Isaiah 55:10-11
Thank you – that when we can’t believe in ourselves or believe in others, we can still believe in YOU because you watch over your word to make sure it accomplishes the very purpose for which you sent it.
Thank you that even when we are faithless or those around us are faithless, you are faithful.
Thank you for standing in the dark with us.
Thank you for being the light that repels the darkness.
Because you are who you say you are, I declare over all of us that, as we enter into 2019,
We will go out in joy and be led forth in peace, the mountains and hills will burst into song before us, and all the trees of the field will clap their hands. Instead of the darkness consuming us, Your Light will grow. This will be for the Lord’s renown, for an everlasting sign, that will endure forever. Isaiah 55:12-13 NIV ~ Paraphrase added
In Jesus Name,
Praying, even in the midst of darkness, you see His light – you feel His love.
Praying His light shines on you, over you, and through you to light up the world around you and repel the darkness.
Praying you truly see Him standing in the dark with you.
Calling 2019 to be year of fruitfulness, fulfillment, and God’s amazing faithfulness to shine brighter in your darkness than you’ve ever seen before.
