Yes, Lord! My life is in YOUR hands.

“Go after a life of love as if your life depended on it — because it does. Give yourselves to the gifts God gives you. Most of all, try to proclaim the truth … letting others in on the truth, so that they can grow and be strong and experience His presence with you.” (14:1, 3 MSG)
“A life of love“ sure sounds like something much bigger than me, Father. It’s got to be You at work in me to transform every crevice of my life into a nook where Your love is found. Only when You invade all of me can there be an overhaul of my character. Here I am, Lord: surrendered, willing, open, available. Do what You need to do so that my life more fully reflects and conveys Your love.
Thank You for the gifts You’ve given me through Your Holy Spirit within me. Thank You for the opportunities You supply in which I may use them. Guide me in using them. YOU be the one directing my investment of those gifts.
Use me, Lord, as a mouthpiece for conveying Your truth to this world, which is groping around trying to find and define “truth.” Put me into situations that call for Your truth to be presented; and I’m confident that You will supply every word, resource, or means necessary for sharing that Truth.
LOVE – GIFTS – TRUTH — all three originate in YOU alone, Father. YOU are Love. You give gifts. You are Truth. AND, YOU are MY God, my Papa, who loves me always, who showers gifts abundantly, and who trains me to walk in Truth consistently, as You make me just like Jesus. Amen.
