Dear Heavenly Father,
In the worship of you, we use the gifts You have given to express all the wonders You surround us with. In the praise of Your name, we tell the world through words and pictures how Your love is never-ending and Your glory, never fading.
But when we take a closer look, do we find a disparity between the things we write and the way we live our lives? When the loving online community You place around us sing our praises and admire the gifts, do those who physically relate with us say the same things too? It’s easy to hide behind the screens both large and small and type away the things that come to mind as we ponder, but when the curtains are dropped and the lights are turned off, will our lives tell of the wonders that our hearts have dared to ponder?
This is our prayer: That the words we write online line up with the lives we live outside. That the thoughts we a share on our screens reflect the thoughts we harbour in our hearts. That our advice to others is the one we live from day to day without disparity. That your light will shine through our lives to others around us as we share Your love to all humanity.
As I spoke to the Lord this morning, He led my heart to pray these words. This is my prayer for all my friends and me in my blogging community. May we walk into the new year with renewed zeal to live a life that God will be pleased with. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
