I am writing you a permission slip. This is a permission slip to ask Jesus Christ into your life. This is a permission slip to be totally honest with the Lord. This is a permission slip to offer everything you are and everything you might be to Him.
Whatever challenge or difficulty you might be facing, God is greater. Take everything to Him in prayer – your successes and failures, your hopes and dreams, your wins and losses. Ask Jesus to walk with you, ask to take His yoke, ask him to help you carry your burdens. I invite you to find out what it means to know Jesus.
If you have been following the 40-day prayer vigil, you know I have spent a lot of time exploring the relationship with the Lord. From Genesis to Revelation, the Living Word tells us about our personal relationship with God. It is a relationship that only happens, as with any relationship, from a place of sincerity and trust. The Lord cares for you and wants you to be in a relationship with Him.
Scripture for Reflection
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. -John 3:16 (ESV)
Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. – Matthew 28-30 (ESV)
Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God..casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you. – 1 Peter 5-6 (ESV)
