Plan Session Devotion: God Can Make It Beautiful

by | Nov 6, 2015 | DEVOTIONS

Each Friday invite you to join in and pray a new prayer of surrender to the Father. This is one of those prayers that come from a deep, honest place of crying out to God for His mercy and grace. I invite you to pray it, too.

Lord, will You go back to that place where my life broke and restore it. Is that even a real prayer? It’s my desperate one. Lord, the wave of regret came out of nowhere. I’m doing all I can do to stand, until I make my way through it, but I can’t do it alone.
When things have not gone as I hoped or dreamed or planned, and I look back over the course, over the steps, over the choices I made to get me here, it’s hard not to blame myself for the failures and the detours that took me off track — and worse — that affect the lives of those I love that came with me. But in this dark place where I can’t see, but feel like I’m being pressed and pushed from every side and my heart is breaking, help me look for You and find You, because You are Light in all my darkness.
Help me trust that You can redeem and make all those wrong twists and turns as a straight path before me. Help me trust that You can make all the rough places smooth. Help me trust that You can somehow use if for Your glory. Help me have hope that in the end, I still win, because You already have. I can’t go back, but You can somehow use all the things that tried to undo me and all the things still trying to unmake me, and make all things new again. Restore. It’s what I ask, in Jesus sweet name. Amen.
GOING DEEPER: Isaiah 61:3, Isaiah 42:16, Romans 8:36-39, 2 Corinthians 4:8-10.
