Prayer Canvas {project}

I have been doing so much dreaming and creating and reading this past week. Really, stopping and thinking "What do I want to do with my life?"

Where have I been? What mistakes have I made? Am I willing to take each mistake I made, am I willing to accept what happened to me, am I willing to move on and more importantly move forward?

The past 4 weeks I have been on a journey of Soul. I have been digging deep inside myself, confronting issues of my past I had not dealt with in years. Those things had been holding me back. I was in the dark.


As bad as things were during my childhood and throughout college one thing was constant...



PRAYER.

Ever since I was 8 years old, prayer has been my lifeline. The Lord has been by my side.


It wasn't until this Soul Restoration class I truly understood that it was PRAYER that comforted me, lifted me up and inspired me to keep moving forward.

It was the love of my Heavenly Father that led me out of the darkness and into the Light.

And it is the same Today. As I continue to read my Scriptures, Pray and Believe in Him I am strengthened.

 


Oh, what a cause of thankfulness it is that we have a gracious God to go to on all occasions! Use and enjoy this privilege and you can never be miserable. Oh, what an unspeakable privilege is prayer!
- Lady Maxwell
