Sometimes I look back in my journals and what surprises me most
is how some things don't really change.
I need these still. Even today. Some days the order is different. Some days the portions are larger in some areas and smaller in others. But I do still need His grace to supply these needs.
He is faithful to supply my needs.
I crack up when I see the little additional notes I write to God sometimes.
Reminds me of something I'd do with my best friend in school.
Because, yes He is.
The first part of the entry is really a prayer, then I go straight to my neediness!
Dated April 3rd of 2004
Lord, I need these:
1.) A gentle spirit.
2.) A forgiving heart.
3.) A kind attitude toward others.
4.) Patience with myself.
5.) Comprehension of God's love for me.
6.) Comprehension of God's love for others.
7.) Appreciation of God's wisdom, power and majesty.
8.) Wisdom concerning life.
9.) Protection against the enemy of my soul.
10.) Discernment for decisions and choices.
11.) Sensitivity to God's Perspective
12.) Sensitivity to others and where they are in life and spirituality.
13.) Realization of God's love for all mankind.
Thank you Jesus that you've made these possible.
*There's more! But You already know.
(that's the additional note to God! Still kinda cracks me up)
Today I really needed this reminder.
That even though I feel needy and weak,
He does not grow weary of me and is faithful to supply my needs...
How about you?
What do you need from God today?
And this same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from his glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus.
