Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance;perseverance, character; and character, hope.
~Romans 5:3-4~ NIV
Father, I am here! Change me! Change my heart! Change my mind! Make me whole again! Make me a new creation in You!
I am here, Lord! I will go! I will go to that place of brokenness. I will go, gladly. I will rejoice, for I am in the midst of Your perfect Will. Though Your hand may lead me even into the Valley of the Shadow of Death itself, I will descend fearlessly into that valley, Lord. I will look down upon the woman I once was, and I will see from a clearer perspective, Your beautiful plan for me as it unfolds. Then Lord, will I pray to You with a heart that is more pure, more obedient, and more dependent on You.
Lord! Here I am! Send me!
Send me Father! Send me to the place that I must go, the place that is necessary, so that I may bear less of my own image and more of Yours.
Father, take my selfishness, my impatience, and irritability, and turn them into kindness, long-suffering, and the willingness to bear all things, (1 Corinthians 13:7).
Take my old emotional habits, mindsets, automatic reactions, rude assumptions, and self-protectiveness, and make me a woman who is patient, kind, good, faithful. gentle and self-controlled, (Galatians 5:22-23).
Take the hardness of my heart and break down the walls with Your battering ram of revelation. Give me a new heart, Lord. Fill my heart to overflowing with Your love, peace and joy, Lord.
Father God, I am weak and unable to rise above who I am in this moment. I need You to help me, Lord. I need You to save me from myself. Only You Father God, can transform me and make me a new creation in You.
In Jesus Holy Name,
