I want..

I want to be like the woman chasing after Jesus to receive healing and blessing.
I want to be so focused on His love for me that it flows effortlessly through me to those around me.
I desire to be so hidden in the shadow of His wings that anything not ordained by Him simply bounces off my being as if I was surrounded by an indestructible force field.
I don’t want to be afraid of struggle, I want to have the courage to struggle well so that His power is revealed through my efforts.
I want to be filled with the Holy Spirit from the time my eyes open in the morning until they close heavily at night.
I want my kids to see, hear, and feel the presence of Jesus in our home, when we share joy, pain and the simple day-to-day moments.
I want to be a wife who loves fearlessly, unconditionally and boldly, encouraging my husband in everything that he feels called to do.
I want to help people on their journey towards hope, healing and reconciliation.
I want to build them up with encouragement, not tear down them down with criticism.
I want to advocate for the disadvantaged, living generously with my time and resources.
I don’t want to be know for what I have, but what I choose to do with it.
God, may the presence I offer today and the days to come, point people directly to you and the completely reckless love you have for us all.
Amen.
