Prayer may not always change my circumstances, but it most certainly always changes my heart. Time in His Presence allows me to release the hurts and concerns in my life, and entrust them to him.
This time allows the spirit to fill me completely and work in me in the places where my perception needs to be changed. It helps me to sort out what trials in life are from God, presented as gifts to help me learn and grow, and which are schemes of the devil to keep me away from Him and his plan for my life.
Thank you father for the reminder each morning that my value is in you, and not in my performance. Continue to open my eyes to the areas of my life where I allow expectations, or my perception of them, to take control. Thank you for the gift of margin in my life, and for opening my eyes to this amazing gift. Give me the words, actions and messages to lead others to a life of balance, connected to you.
