Be The Pilot of My Life, My Jesus

Thank You, My LORD, for the vision you gave to me as I prayed this morning. 

In my pleading, I asked for -- and could see in my mind's eye -- You in the wheelhouse of my existence confidently and faithfully piloting my life. 

With one of Your nail-scared hands on the throttle and Your other nail-scared hand at the ship's wheel, I trust You even now to guide me in the direction of Your own choosing and at the speed you know is best. 

In Your Name, I say, "so be it until my last voyage ends in Victory. Yes, Amen."

"Dearest My Savior And Lord..."

Dearest my Savior and Lord -- Jesus:

Help me to Love You the way You deserve to be Loved. Take my whole life and get glory for Youself. 

Your Name is Wonderful and You are my Life, my Hope, my Everything. Live Your desires through me, I pray. 

I want to inhale and exhale Your Sweet Holy Spirit all of my days and nights. In every encounter of my Life, allow me to clearly recognize Your Presence and let others always undeniably see You, my King, reigning within me. 

Jesus, You alone are my Inspiration at all times and in all things. Apart from You I can do nothing that ultimately matters. I want and need Your Never-ending Embrace and Amazing Grace. 

I love You, Jesus. And I pray in Ypur Name. Amen.

Ready to go, ready to stay
Ready for God to have His way

He is worthy, He is Love
He's here below and up above

To know Him is to love Him
To know Him is to turn from sin

When He comes to take His bride away
Will you be ready? How about today?

Autumn, Etc.

Another Autumn has arrived
It feels good to be alive
The air is crisp, the sky is clear
The holidays will soon be here

Seasons pass oh so fast
Reminding us our days don't last
So enjoy Autumn as best you can
Remembering God's Eternal Plan

Ready to Listen

The Lord always speaks
But at times we don't hear
He whispers assurance
To dispel every fear

In gentle silence
He often shows up
To lighten our burdens
With hope from above

So with humble attention
Let us be still
Ready to listen...
...Becoming His will...

Many Dangers...

Seems I am often saying or singing aloud to God, in deep gratitude, these words from "Amazing Grace" -- John Newton's beloved hymn: 

"Through many dangers, toils, and snares, I have already come!"

It's so true. And there are without doubt even more "dangers, toils, and snares" still on the horizon. 

Oswald Chambers wrote these words:

"A great thing about our salvation is that it often keeps us from dangers we know nothing about."

Wow! Think on these things... And be...

"Troubled? Don't Be!"

(1) “Don’t be troubled. Believe in God, and believe in me. (2) My Father’s house has many rooms. If that were not true, would I have told you that I’m going to prepare a place for you? (3) If I go to prepare a place for you, I will come again. Then I will bring you into my presence so that you will be where I am.”
-- Words of Jesus, John 14:1-3 (GWT)
