Hey guys. It’s Emmie here. Thank you so much for reading! This was a different sort of post than I normally do. I took pieces of my life where I struggled and poured them into this poem about God giving you hope, light, and life, showing you you are not lost, but found.
Did you enjoy this poem? What did you think about it? Do you want to see more posts like this one?
When Jesus sacrificed everything, took the form of an imperfect human, and died on the cross to take the punishment of our sins, we could finally enter Heaven. Someday we will be with God again. Someday we will belong to a perfect world.
I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.
So in your pain, in this broken world, know that there is hope. Someday the world will be made new.
Dear God, please help me to have hope. Help me to know that you are always there for me. I can’t wait for when the world is made new and when I will see You someday in Heaven. I know You are coming back someday. In the meantime, help me to do all I can to help make this world a better place. I love you, God, and I know you love me. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
Hi everyone! I hope you enjoyed today’s devotional. Look at me being on time and actually posting this on Wednesday, haha. This topic is really important to me, and I believe that everyone needs a reminder that everything is going to be okay and that there is hope in this broken world.
On Saturday, guest post submissions will be open, so keep an eye out for that! Bye guys!
I encourage all of you to take the challenge! I would absolutely love it if you shared this post with anyone you think would like to do this challenge, so that way we can spread the word! Have a fantastic day, and don’t forget to hold the door! (Day 1’s challenge :P)
Are you excited for the day when we will get to meet Jesus (and each other!) in Heaven? Can you wait for the day when Jesus is coming? Did you like this devotional?
Last year, was full of many hardships and pain. I was diagnosed with type one diabetes, my grandfather died, and I had a lot of anxiety. So this year, my family is making a resolution to let go from the pain and hurt and worry, let go of old problems and arguments, and let go of 2018.
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
–1 John 1:9
Letting go makes room for new things. Sometimes those new things can be hard, but sometimes they can be the most abundant blessings that you never dared dream of. In 2019, ask God to help you Take the Plunge and release your old self.
A right time to search and another to count your losses, A right time to hold on and another to let go…
–Ecclesiastes 3:6 (MSG)
When we become Christians, the blood of Jesus washes away our sins. We are made new in the eyes of Jesus! All you have to do to become a Christian is say this prayer aloud with me:
Dear Lord Jesus, come into my heart. Forgive me of my sin. Wash me and cleanse me. Set me free. Release me, Jesus. Jesus, thank You that You died for me. I believe that You have risen from the dead and that You’re coming back again for me. Fill me with the Holy Spirit. Give me a passion for the lost, a hunger for the things of God and a holy boldness to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ. I’m saved; I’m born again, I’m forgiven and I’m on my way to Heaven because I have Jesus in my heart.
Because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved.
Thank you for reading, and have a lovely day! God is on your side in 2019! Stay tuned for a post on my personal word of the year, flexible. This trusting God in 2019 has become sort of a series!
PS Thank you for 50 followers! It means so much to me that you all like my devotionals. I’m working on something awesome for our 1-year blogaversiary + 50 followers celebration! Make sure to check back on Monday, the 21st of January, because that’s when SFMF will be turning 1!
PPS Thank you to Bigskybuckeye for the inspiration for this post! In the comments, your shared your words for 2019 and that prompted me to write about mine!
Imagine you are in a cave. A dark, shadowy, rocky cave, filled with razor-sharp rocks, endless pools, and calm plains alike. Some spots in the cave are easy to make it through – others, though, you struggle to reach the end of.
Then, imagine that you find a flashlight. The moment you accept the fact that it’s impossible to get through the cave on your own, the flashlight turns on and floods the cave with light and understanding.
Those jagged, sharp rocks? Turns out, in the light, they were just little pebbles. Those dark pools of swirling waters? When the light hits them, you realize they were just puddles.
Life is like that cave, and God is like that light. When you put your trust in God and pray to Him, then His Light can shine on any situation!
“Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path”. -Psalm 119:105
“…the people who sat in darkness have seen a great light. And for those who lived in the land where death casts its shadow, a light has shined.” – Matthew 4:16
Have a blessed day! What are some ways YOU remember to ask for God’s light in prayer? Are you participating in the Letters With A Purpose challenge?
