  • An Open Invitation

    Come to me all who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light. Matthew 11:28-30 Dear Lord Jesus, I praise You for who You are. You are merciful, gracious, and loving. You saved me from my sins, and You gifted me with my faith to believe in the gospel. My repentance and faith were not of my own doing, but a gift from above. (Ephesians 2:8-9). For I am sure of this: I couldn't have ever repented on my own strength or believed on my own merit, but only by Your grace. "The greatest act of mercy God performs is giving the gift of faith." When I was weary and burdened, You had mercy on me and drew me to Your Word. It was the work of the Holy Spirit that carried salvation to me through Your Word. And by Your grace, I responded with childlike faith in Jesus. So faith comes by hearing, and hearing through the Word of God (Romans 10:17). I praise You for who You are. You are not strict or harsh with me. You are not some taskmaster in the sky who gives me heavy burdens or demands difficult things from me. Rather, You are the Creator of heaven and earth who is patient and kind. You are gentle and humble in heart. Your yoke is easy and Your burden is light. And it’s only in You that I find rest for my soul. Come to me all who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light. Matthew 11:28-30 This verse is a beautiful gospel invitation to all those who are weary and burdened by their sins and desire to be saved from them. The gospel is for all those who yearn to be freed from the heavy yoke of iniquity and the endless, vain striving in self-sufficiency. Jesus extends His invitation to all those who labor and are heavy-laden; those who are crushed under the Law and working for salvation; those who are wounded emotionally, spiritually, or physically. Like a bruised reed or a smoldering wick, Jesus invites all those who are weak and broken to come to Him. To the world, bruised reeds and smoldering wicks have no power, purpose, or importance. They are often overlooked, marginalized, or despised. But these are exactly the ones whom Jesus calls, and He offers a shalom for our restlessness. a bruised reed he will not break, and a smoldering wick he will not quench, (Matthew 12:20). Jesus has compassion for the bruised reed, for He was bruised for our iniquities (Isaiah 53:5). On the cross, Jesus was bruised on the behalf of those bruised by their own sins. He was sent into the world not to call the righteous but sinners to repentance. (Luke 5:32). He was sent to bind up the brokenhearted and proclaim liberty to the captives, (Isaiah 61:1). Jesus said, “Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick” (Matthew 9:12). The gospel can only be received with a humble heart that recognizes its own sinfulness and need of a Savior. Jesus says, “Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven (Matthew 18:3). Humility is key in receiving Jesus, and it’s only by God’s grace that we are humbled to receive Him through child-like faith. Child-like faith does not mean childish or immature, but trustful, teachable, and obedient. The gospel is an open invitation to all who are bruised, smoldering, weary, and burdened. Jesus tells us to come just as we are, but He doesn't intend to leave us that way. Jesus didn't come to affirm us in our sinful state and accept us just the way we are. Rather, He came to save us from our sins, call us to repentance, and transform our hearts and minds to live our lives for Him, the One who died for us. It's the invitation of all invitations, and I am so moved that by His grace, I accepted. Lord Jesus, You died on the cross for my sins and rose again that I may find eternal life in You. I was once weary and burdened by my sins, but You had mercy on me. By Your grace, You granted me repentance, drew me to Your Word, and gifted me with my faith to believe in Jesus as my Lord and Savior. I praise You for saving me from my sins and inviting me into Your eternal rest. It’s only from a place of stability and rest that power can flow. Jesus, it’s only in You that I find my joy and strength. I praise You for who You are. You are gentle and humble in heart. I pray that You help me be gentle and humble in heart, too. All glory belongs to my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. In Jesus’ Name I pray amen. The gospel is open to all; the most respectable sinner has no more claim on it than the worst. Martyn Lloyd-Jones The saying is trustworthy and deserving of full acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of who I am the foremost. But I received mercy for this reason, that in me, as the foremost, Jesus Christ might display his perfect patience as an example to those who were to believe in him for eternal life (1 Timothy 1:15-16). Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in me shall never thirst. But I said to you that you have seen me and yet do not believe. All that the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never cast out. John 6:35-37 I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and one can snatch them out of my hand. John 10:28 Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Matthew 5:3 Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted. Matthew 5:4

  • The Joy of the Lord

    for this day is holy to our Lord. And do not be grieved, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.” Nehemiah 8:10 Dear Lord Jesus, You are my Lord and Savior, and You are my best friend. There is no one else who can share the depth of grief I may feel or the heights of joy I experience. You know every feeling I feel to its fullest extent, every single hair that is on my head, and Before a word is on my tongue you, LORD, know it completely (Psalm 139:4). I love the intimacy that I share with You, Jesus! For You love each and every one of Your children as if there were only one of us! "God is the most glorified in us when we are the most satisfied in Him." - John Piper. The latest news, TV shows, fantasy land, Tik Tok and Instagram reels, and entertainment are all Satan's substitutes for joy. The more joy I have in Jesus, the less entertainment I need to fill me up. All I need is Jesus if I want to have real satisfaction and peace in my heart. With peace and satisfaction comes joy. All I need is Jesus if I want to feel joy in my heart. I find joy in Jesus when I come to Him and spend time with Him. I find joy in Jesus when I do my work for Him. I find joy in Jesus when I open His Word and listen to Him. I find joy in Jesus when I love and obey His Word. I find joy in Jesus when I reflect on who He is and what He did for me. Jesus is all I need if I want joy. He is the epitome of joy. He is the source of joy. And with my joy in the Lord, comes strength! Of course, my brothers and sisters in Christ bring me great joy too! I need them to help strengthen me in my faith and daily walk with Jesus. We all have our own personal walks with Jesus, but we are here for each other to help and encourage one another on our way to heaven. My walk with Jesus should never be kept hidden or concealed from others as if it were a secret. Like any other joy we share, our joy in Jesus will be the fullest when we share Him with others. "The greatest joy is to know Jesus. The second greatest joy is to make Him known." Steve Lawson. Lord, I pray that You help me share Your truth in boldness and confidence in You. I ask that You help me to never be ashamed of Christ and to never shy away when the opportunity arises to say Your name with conviction or to share the gospel with those who desperately need You. Help me put others' eternal souls above my own comfort and worldly reputation. Help me to be loving and gentle when sharing the Truth. And also help me to never compromise on the hard or uncomfortable parts of it. Help me tell the whole Truth in love. Lord, give me the grace to always be a blessing to others and to glorify You in everything that I do, say, and think. When I live for the glory of God, I live out my God-given purpose, and that is wonderful! It brings me joy to bring You glory! The glory of God is none other than the glory of Jesus Christ, for they are one and the same. I want to live for You because You died for me, Jesus. Although I will stumble, I desire to obey Your Word and walk in Your ways because I trust You! Your Word is good and perfect in every way. And I know that by Your grace You will keep me from ever falling away indefinitely. The Holy Spirit gives me the grace to walk in Thy statutes and is the guarantee of my inheritance in heaven (Ephesians 1:14). How comforting is Your grace! I am secure in Your arms for all eternity! Praise You! Lord, thank you for choosing me, cleansing me of my sins, saving me, setting me apart, and loving me with an eternal love. What. A. Gift. You are my everlasting joy, Jesus! All glory belongs to my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. In Jesus’ Name I pray, Amen. Love, Jenna 7 But whatever gain I had, I counted as loss for the sake of Christ. 8 Indeed, I count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have suffered the loss of all things and count them as rubbish, in order that I may gain Christ 9 and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which comes through faith in Christ, the righteousness from God that depends on faith—10 that I may know him and the power of his resurrection, and may share his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, 11 that by any means possible I may attain the resurrection from the dead. (Philippians 3:7-11). Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective (James 5:16).

  • Mini Bedtime Prayers

    I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people, 19 and his incomparably great power for us who believe. Ephesians 1:18-19 Dear Lord Jesus, May my meditations be pleasing to You, for I rejoice in the Lord. Psalm 104:34 Lord, I pray that You Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting. Psalm 139:2-24 Lord, help me Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, and faithful in prayer. Romans 12:12 I pray that You protect me from the evil one and comfort me with Your presence. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; Your rod and your staff, they comfort me. Psalm 23:4 I pray that You help me trust in You alone and not in my own mind or human reasoning. Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make straight your paths. Be not wise in your own eyes; fear the LORD, and turn away from evil. It will be healing to your flesh and refreshment to your bones. Proverbs 3:5-8 Lord, please help me seek to understand Your Word accurately and interpret it responsibly. Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth. 2 Timothy 2:15 Lord, I praise You for the gift of the Holy Spirit, who is my teacher and my helper, guiding me into all truth. But the anointing that you received from him abides in you, and you have no need that anyone should teach you. But as his anointing teaches you about everything, and is true, and is no lie—just as it has taught you, abide in him. 1 John 2:27 Lord, help me be prepared to answer everyone for the hope that I have in You. But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect, 16 having a good conscience, so that, when you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ may be put to shame. 1 Peter 3:15 Lord, help me put off the old self, which belongs to my former manner of life, and help me put on the new self, created after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness (Ephesians 4:24). Like the Holy One who called you, be holy yourselves also in all your behavior; because it is written, ‘You shall be holy, for I am holy.” 1 Peter: 14-15 Lord, help me suffer for the sake of Christ, and so do the will of God in this way. For it has been granted to you that for the sake of Christ, you should not only believe in him but also suffer for his sake. Philippians 1:29 Lord, remind me always of this magnificent truth, and comfort me in knowing that You work everything into good for those who love You. And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28 Lord, thank You for taking away my anxieties when I bring them to You. You are my refuge and the God of all comfort. I always feel relaxed and calm after spending time with you. Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you. 1 Peter 5:7 Lord, I pray for all of my brothers and sisters to come to know You more and more and grow in the grace and knowledge of You…and I pray that for me too. I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. Ephesians 1:17 Lord, I praise You for Your grace that gives me the power to choose that which is good, right, and true by Your gift of the Holy Spirit who lives inside me. What shall we say then? Are we to continue in sin that grace may abound? By no means! How can we who died to sin still live in it? Romans 6:1-2 Lord, I give my life to You because You died for me. I believe in who You are and what You did for me. May You help me live for You every single day, keeping you at the center of my life 24-7-365. I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. Galatians 2:20 Lord, I thank You for saving me, washing me, and setting me free in Jesus, by grace through faith. I am no longer in bondage to sin and condemned by the Law. I am a new creation in Christ and now walk in the Spirit by Your grace. Therefore there is now no condemnation for those found in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death. Romans 8:1-2 I praise You for being the God of peace. Thank You for the peace that surpasses all understanding. What a precious gift that comes with having faith in You! Your peace helps me sleep soundly at night, knowing I am forever secure in Jesus, no matter what. In peace I will both lie down and sleep, for you alone, O LORD, make me to dwell in safety. Psalm 4:8 Lord, I know that nothing is impossible for You. With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible. Matthew 19:26 Lord Jesus, help me come to know You more, grow with You more, and love You more. Help me love others more too. Help me be more patient, gentle, and meek. I pray for a more humble heart, which generates true love for others. 36 “Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law?” 37 And he said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. 38 This is the great and first commandment. 39 And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. 40 On these two commandments depend all the Law and the Prophets.” Matthew 22:36-40 All glory belongs to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. In Jesus name, I pray amen. Love, Jenna 26 For consider your calling, brothers: not many of you were wise according to worldly standards, not many were powerful, not many were of noble birth. 27 But God chose what is foolish in the world to shame the wise; God chose what is weak in the world to shame the strong; 28 God chose what is low and despised in the world, even things that are not, to bring to nothing things that are, 29 so that no human being might boast in the presence of God.30 And because of him you are in Christ Jesus, who became to us wisdom from God, righteousness and sanctification and redemption, 31 so that, as it is written, “Let the one who boasts, boast in the Lord.” 1 Corinthians 1:26-31
