Live Without Regrets
"I sought the Lord, and he answered me; he delivered me from all my fears."
Lord, today we bring to you are hopes and our fears. We hope to rise above self-serving and fear that we'll only get half way. We hope to take advantage of all the opportunities you place in our path and fear they will slip through our fingers like water through a sieve. We hope to walk more closely with you and fear that you will order our steps to take to far from our comfort zone. We hope to hear your voice behind us telling us which way to go and we fear the voices of others will sway us more.
Strengthen us now in our inner being. Give us a love that cast away all fears and a faith that is the substance of all we hope for. We want to go where you lead us whether others agree with it or not. We want to do what you call us to do. We want to grasp the potential of this day and live without regrets. In the name of Jesus, deliver us from everything that keeps us from moving forward confidently!
