Thank you so much!!!! :’( I am scared a lot… Last night I had a dream about Jesus and he told me, “let the dead bury the dead..but you are alive and must come with me to walk in the land of the living.” In the dream it was so physically different to hear what he said… I looked this verse up in scripture from Matthew 8 and it’s about how hard it is to follow Jesus.. Maybe he’s just reminding me that the path of righteousness is not a cake walk… Idk I’m still a little sad about it and what’s happening in my life… But I’m praying over this dream :’( tonight I have home group so maybe I can talk about it with my friends from Bethel. I just want God to hold me…
Lord cover me in your grace and peace that surpasses all understanding. I want to feel safe and secure in you and nothing else- not my finances or my health even. I want to be healthy and generous- but I want to be secure in You no matter my circumstances.
Lord you know how scared I am and what I fear. You know how I need love and patience at every turn. Please have mercy on me and let me feel your mercy. I don’t have to beg for you to be gracious towards me- so I ask that I begin to LIVE in your grace. That I can better receive it and feel it. You fully give life and life to the full- I want to live more in that life you call me to- even if it goes against the norm and seems backwards to what the world says.
God be with me- hold me- guide me- and grasp my small hand in yours as I jump in to more unknown.
This one is called “butterfly kisses.” One day at bethel I was depressed and crying. A woman approached me and started to pray over me. I has my eyes shut, dealing with the doubts that were consuming my mind. But just as the woman got silent, I saw flashing lights within my eyes and these lights turned into beautiful blue sparkling butterflies. Right as I was about to think, “wow that’s beautiful!” The woman said out loud to me: “I see Jesus smothering you in butterfly kisses!” …I melted in the love of Jesus in that moment! He loves us where we are at and how we need him most! :) God is amazing and I pray he smothers you in butterfly kisses too!

It’s not only about you, we have to think about others people too. There are a lot of people who will only hear the Gospel through you, God calls you for that, for this purpose. God wants to change your life so you can change others lives. God will not abandon you. So don’t you abandon them.
