A life of faith in this world is not easy for the Christian. If you believe almost anything else, some will listen. Sharing your faith in Christ is often resisted. Be gracious and kind, but always willing to share the hope that is within you. Know that He who made you is always present and an ever-present help and support. Seek the Lord always and lean upon Him for all things.
Lord, I am often tempted to go it alone. I think that I need to figure all things out before moving forward. Help me, O Lord, to lean upon You knowing that only You know all things. Guide me in the way You know I need to go that I would follow You all the days of my life and speak praises of You. Strengthen me for the tasks You have prepared for me that I may fulfill Your will.
Come, Holy Spirit, and grow in me the image of Christ my Savior. Help me to lean upon You more than just to seek knowledge. Lift up my spirit to always seek Your counsel. Help me in every difficult situation to see that in You is my hope and glory. Let my lips speaks to others of Your goodness and mercy. May I learn to live in the grace You give and share the hope that is in my heart. Amen.
