I hear my call. I understand that there is a great plan for my life. I want to execute now, have answers now, get your reward now. But, I am being asked to wait. For how long, I don't know.
I expected to be afraid of the leap, but it is the standing still that has caused so much panic. While others seem to speed by, I progress at a snail's pace, or, even worse, not at all. Doubt begins its steady creep into my mind and fears of insignificance attempt to make themselves comfortable.
What if I am not called?
What if this is a mistake?
Am I not good enough?
Did God forget about me?
Are they right?
Have I failed before I started?
Dear God, I come to you with the sword of truth ready to slay the spirit of doubt. When you declare a promise, you come through. You are not a man like me. I lie. You speak life. I can hold fast to your word when the anxieties of the wait rise up.
You have not forgotten me. You are just allowing the fullness of your work to be finished.
I pray James 1:2-4, when I lose patience.
Consider it pure joy, my brothers, and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds
because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance.
Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete,
not lacking anything.
I pray Hebrews 10:35-36 when my confidence wains.
So do not throw away this confident trust in the Lord.
Remember the great reward it brings you!
Patient endurance is what you need now, so that you will continue to do God’s will.
Then you will receive all that he has promised.
I pray Isaiah 58:11, when I feel like I can't go another step.
The Lord will guide you continually, giving you water when you are dry and restoring your strength. You will be like a well-watered garden, like an ever-flowing spring.
And, I pray Psalms 119:114-117, when the attacks come.
You are my refuge and my shield; your word is my source of hope.
Get out of my life, you evil-minded people, for I intend to obey the commands of my God.
Lord, sustain me as you promised, that I may live! Do not let my hope be crushed.
Sustain me, and I will be rescued; then I will meditate continually on your decrees.
I pray these scriptures so that I may feel peace as I stand.
The wait is as important as the push. Send your angels to watch over my heart, so I do not lose hope. Send your holy spirit to whisper words of encouragement, so I do not get weary. Send your living word to impart wisdom, so I don't stray.
This too shall pass. The answers will come. The path will be made clear. Until then, I will seek you and wait.
Holy Spirit, please locate the origin of my feeling(s)/thought(s) of (insert the negative feeling or thought that you want to resolve).
Take each and every level, layer, area and aspect of my being to this origin. Analyze and resolve it perfectly, with Your truth.
Come through all generations of time & eternity, healing every incident and its appendages based on the origin.
Do it according to Your will, God, until I'm at the present, filled with light and truth, Your peace and love, forgiveness of myself for my incorrect perceptions, forgiveness of every person, place, circumstance, and events which contributed to these feeling(s)/thought(s).
With total forgiveness and unconditional love, I allow every physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual problem, and inappropriate behavior based on the negative origin recorded in my DNA, to transform.
I choose to be (insert a description of your new vision of self).
I choose to feel (insert a description of how you want to feel about yourself and your life).
I am (insert a description of who you know God has made you to be).
It is done. It is healed. It is accomplished now!
Thank you, Holy Spirit, for coming to my aid and helping me attain the full measure of my creation. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
I love and praise You, God, from whom all blessings, healing, health, and wholeness flow.

You rise early in the morning, set up a pristine space at a cute little wooden table,
throw in your favorite cup of tea or coffee, your favorite bible with the flawless,
crispy pages, and VOILA! You are now ready to meet with the Lord.
This is the Holy Grail combo deal of spiritual disciplines that a person can get in one
sitting. It usually involves Bible reading, reflection, prayer, journaling, solitude,
and—you guessed it—quiet. We are taught that it’s best to do it first thing in the
morning before you get your day started because then and only then will you be
ready to face the world.
Sounds incredible, doesn’t it? But let’s be honest: most of us are not meeting with
the Lord like this everyday.
This will get messy. But, I got you. - God #verseinanutshell
We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance. And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation. And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love. Romans 5:3-5 NLT
I pray you see what God has seen in you all along. That the goodness and greatness of you come forward, and past hurt melts away. That you rediscover the amazing person you were before the pain.
Though this site is for and about spirit-led creatives, we want to leave a message for anyone who dares to dream.
You dare to see beyond your now, witness the vision God has for you, then go for it — quaking in your boots the entire way. We love you and are praying for you.
God, we pray for the dreams and us, the dreamers. We serve as vessels for your kingdom on Earth and we pray for all those who feel a swell of passion coming forth — knowing it is your Holy Spirit rising in them.
The first verb, first act, the first moment recorded in the centuries old text we hold so dear was one of creation. The practice of manifesting something from what was once nothing kick started this whole thing.
God wrote this text, so he made the choice to record creation first. This does not cancel out all other acts to follow, but it does position creation as first, primary, coming before all others.
I believe this gives us a peek into God’s insides…His inner voice…if he has one. We see what consumes his mind and urges His inspiration.
When faced with the endless void of pre-universe, He decided to paint the sky at sunset. He chose to compose the bird’s morning song. He chose to fashion the canyons and design the depths of the ocean floor. When allowed to do all or nothing, he chose to create.
He chose the be a creative…and so have we.
