I pray because everyday I sin. When I confess my sins the grace is overwhelming, I feel nothing but love. Wow, that is a powerful feeling, nothing compares. When I pray God gives me the ability to control my mind, my thoughts, my mood; fear is gone and lies no longer have control. In prayer we have the ability to cleanse our own soul, it’s a magnificent feeling. It drives me to want to give to others in anyway I can to help them with their struggles. Faith is strengthened, I am strong I know he is with my guiding me and lighting the way. I know I can continue to hope for all things that are good and be sure they will come for he continues to give me real life examples of goodness and miracles each and every day.
I have taken artificial means to give me a boost, to energize me but nothing on this earth is effective once you realize the energy the Holy Spirit gives the spirit.
I feel fearful today, fueled with fears both past and present when I pray I feel my soul growing a tenderness I want to grasp forever. All the lies are apparent they no longer trick, I recognize the purity in others and am drawn to their light. My thirst for unhealthy addictions are gone and my sadness is gone to another place.
And this is why I will continue to pray!
