Growth: My prayer for us for 2018

https://dailypost.wordpress.com/photo-challenges/growth-2/

My prayer for us is taken from Ephesians 3: 15-21.

“I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen us with power through his Spirit in our inner being, so that Christ may dwell in our hearts through faith. And I pray that you & I, being rooted and established in love,  may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ,  and to know tIMG_1245his love that surpasses knowledge—that we may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us,  to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever!”  And, Lord, I also pray specifically for people, who like myself right now,  feel overcome by loneliness. It’s getting dark, my daughter is enjoying time to herself in her room. It’s just me & my computer.  I pray for all single parents and single people out there who spend a lot of time thinking of ways to fill in the empty spaces.  I pray that you will put it on the hearts of their church friends to reach out and spend time with them. I pray that more people will realize how important it is to live this life together so that none of us become convinced that we are walking this faith walk alone. In lonely times, I pray that you will grow our ability to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ for us and that we are truly loved by our sisters and brothers in Christ. I pray that though we may be out of sight, we are not out of mind. May this be an amazing year of growth for us all as our faith grows stronger and as we grow in ways to show love & support to one another. I also pray, Lord, that you will continue to show me ways I can demonstrate your love. Amen.

For the last 17 years, I have worked as a Sign Language Interpreter in a variety of settings such as educational, medical, mental health & video relay interpreting. Prior to becoming an interpreter, writing was my passion & in the last 2 years, I've been drawn back to it. Doors have been opening in ways I did not expect. I was miraculously invited to be a part of a Christian Writer's group by a co-worker & now dear friend. After attending two meetings, this friend and I both knew that we were to begin writing a compilation of some sort with all the members of our group. Soon after it was discussed with the group, we began our planning & work on "The Christian Herald". Though we are still in the infancy stages of this new endeavor, we are excited to see what God will be doing through the work He inspired us to do. I'm embracing this time where writing is again being placed in the forefront of my mind and no longer sitting idle on the back burner. The joy I'm experiencing and that need to record my thoughts is fueling my soul. I feel a deep sense of satisfaction but most of all, I am more connected to the one who lead me in this direction.
