I pray that my life would reflect the messiness of Crayola stained hands ,that my heart would show childlike faith and surrender to whatever it is God has called me to display for His glory. I pray that my story will reflect a God who is bigger than the task at hand but who has continually shown His faithfulness in my battles and brought beauty and healing to my heart. I pray that Jesus would be the cause in which I diligently pursue and His presence would illuminate from every part of my being. I pray that I would be so saturated in His Spirit that my life would be stained with His love and leave a mark on all those I come in contact with. Your life tells a story, the hues of color emerge from the trials, triumphs and restoration that God has instilled throughout the pages. What stains would you reflect, what masterpiece are you allowing God to create through you?
“You give me Your shield of victory, and Your right hand sustains me; You stoop down to make me great. You broaden the path beneath me, so that my ankles turn….Arm me with strength for the battle; make my adversary bow at my feet. Make my enemy turn back in flight. Thank You, God! One day You will utterly destroy my foe.” (Psalm 18:35-36, 39-40)
