Tired of Living in Fear


BLACK: Father, I am afraid. My life seems to have become very challenging for me. Though I see the light and my path is becoming clearer, there is still much that is black and bleak.

BLACK: I want to do Your will for me Father, but I ask for more healing and clarity through this black valley. It seems so long and I am growing more and more tired. Though you show me light, beauty, and goodness in me and in this world, the black in my thoughts are still too dominant. I know they are not based on Your truth, but, they are deeply ingrained.

BLACK: I fear exposure in this world. Though I want to be fully living as I believe is Your will, the harsh negativity in others and their negative judgments and behaviors can weigh me down. I am afraid I cannot mentally and emotionally overcome the responsibility and pressure without Your love and truth being strongly entrenched in my thought life and the support of good people who care about me.

BLACK: Father, will you heal me of my trauma, anxiety, and panic? Will you heal my mind and emotions and align them with your truth and not the truth of abuse? Will you help me know that feeling fear does not have to be so debilitating and these traumatic thoughts can just pass freely through me when they come up and go naturally and feel neutral and not keep me stuck?

BLACK: Father, I don't believe You have called me to a life of poverty. Though I accept and appreciate what I have and You have been providing for me, will you let my gifts be given freely and paid as well as I believe this is Your will? I ask that You remove whatever blocks I have and others may have that are not allowing this to happen?

BLACK: Father, will you give me the strength to live in my true essence? It is such a beautiful person this person You created me to be. Will you do this for ultimately Your glory and for me and for others to witness Your miraculous and amazing healthy loving power.

BLACK: Father, if this is the cross You want me to bear I accept and trust that You will continue to give me Your grace, strength, and, provide the right resources to help me. However, there is something strong in me that feels of You that says: "You will be healed, do great things, and shine for My glory, for you, and for others."

BLACK: Father, I love You.

Yes, there is much darkness in our world. In God's grace He moves us from darkness to light, from death to eternal life!
