On my hike this morning….
Lord, I love you! I see Your beauty in these wildflowers! You are lovely, God. You are so great and I love You…
(Don’t forget to get trash bags at Walmart, oh and potting soil…)
And, God, please watch over Colie at camp and Arik in Denver, keep them safe….
(These shoes are so good for hiking. I’m really glad I got them. My flip flops are wearing out, though, I think I better get some new ones before the old ones break…)
Oh yes, God, thank you for a new morning, and for health and strength and for life!
(Man, I really loved my time with my Jericho Girls group last night. What a precious time of sharing…)
Lord, I’m sorry….
I have the hardest time staying focused sometimes when I’m praying to You. I want to
I want to keep all my focus on You on these hikes, but I’m so distracted. I’m just sorry….
(Ugh, messed up again….)
I love you, child. I made you a multi-tasker. I see you trying hard to keep focused on Me. I made you this way and I use you this way. You are not messing up. I’m always here.
God…. I just love You so much. Thank You. I will keep trying with Your help.
I am just like a friend walking along your side that you jump from topic to topic with. I delight in you.
Friend, do you struggle with focus when praying? Boy, I sure do. But I’m so thankful that God sticks right with me anyway. And I’m thankful that as I grow to know Him more and more that my communication with Him can flow more and more freely throughout the day. He is always with me and I can talk to Him any time. What a precious gift from my Abba Father. Be encouraged! God knows we can be flighty. He is patient with His children.
