A Writing Challenge: Day 21

Praise: I praise my God today for His compassion.  I know that when my heart is breaking, for whatever reason, His heart is breaking even more. Our God is full of compassion and gentleness. It is reassuring and comforting to know how much love He has for us. That means whatever I'm hurting for, He is right along side me, there for me, hurting for the same reasons. I praise Him for that!

Prayer: My prayer today is for God to open my eyes to those who are hurting so that I can be an encouragement to them and pray for their situation. I know that sometimes I mistake someones sadness as a negativity towards myself. This thought pattern is something that I am working so hard to change. Most of the time, when someone is sad or in a bad mood, it has nothing to do with me, even though I automatically assume it is something I did. I have found that if I just take a minute and ask that person if everything is ok, I find that they are usually upset about something personal and it is an opportunity for me to ask if there is something that I can do for them. I need to really work on doing this more.

Lord Jesus, Please give me Your eyes to see when people are hurting! Help me to be aware of these opportunities so that I can encourage others and pray for them. Forgive me for assuming that it has to do with me and think differently about the situation than I normally would. Thank You for having compassion towards me in every situation. In Your Name we pray, Amen.

Many Blessings,
