Jesus, my motivation is always so sinful. My fear is that I’m faking everything sometimes.
Help me to fight the lie, Lord.
I hate the side of myself that came out today. I panic when things don’t go according to my plan and I lash out at others.
I felt disorganized leading. I didn’t feel like I was speaking from You. Sometimes I just feel awkward in social situations.
Lord, You know my desires. You know my heart. You know my sin. And You became that sin, and You put it to death. Let me hold onto that basic, elementary truth.
Please give me strength. Holy Spirit, pour into these people and the relationships I’m building. Give me courage and open doors. And work in my heart, Lord. Lead me to work OUT of a grace identity, not FOR it. Sometimes I have a hard time distinguishing the two. I need Your Spirit, God, and You have given it.
Lord, give me a heart of genuine, pure love. On my own, I have nothing. Thank You for Your love for me, even in my unfaithfulness. Even when I seek to use You to make myself look good. That sounds so stupid written out, but that is my heart.
Teach me that I am no longer a sinner, but I am Your daughter. I keep defining myself by my sin, but that is not who I am, Lord. Guide me to walk in that truth.
