Sep 20

Lord, you see every inch of this struggle I am living through. You know its history as well as its future. You know how deeply I am hurt, how alone and nearly hopeless in this one thing at this moment. Still, I believe in the healing power of your wings, Lord. I believe in the calming nature of your touch. I know how you move my heart toward joy and peace, and I know that you are caring for me even when I feel so alone and misunderstood. Still I wish for some fellowship and encouragement from your people, but I must instead just be content with what I have, which is already ENOUGH. Please help me to yield to you, Father, and just be your little Acceptance with Joy.

 
Ephesians 3:10-12 ERV

His purpose was that all the rulers and powers in the heavenly places will now know the many different ways he shows his wisdom. They will know this because of the church. 
This agrees with the plan God had since the beginning of time. He did what he planned, and he did it through Christ Jesus our Lord. 
In Christ we come before God with freedom and without fear. We can do this because of our faith in Christ.

 
Lord God, I thank you for making a way for me and the rest of your people to come before you. Without your Touch, your care, your support, I would faint — in fact I would not have made it past my first year of life and certainly would have died by the time I was five, from all the torture if not from the more “normal” abuse — and from the despair and aloneness. Yet despite my situation, I still found JOY in you, in your creation, in your presence which I knew before I had a word or name to call it. Thank you for always being near me, revealing yourself to me in small ways every single day. Please encourage my heart, Lord God, as I feel very worn out from this path. Amen.
