    For you don't delight in sacrifice, or else I would give it. You have no pleasure in burnt offering. The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit. O God, you will not despise a broken and contrite heart. Psalms 51:16 WEBWhen I first came to the Lord, I was so zealous that I wanted to make up for everyt...

    The Wonder of You from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. Today I want to talk about the wonder of the Lord. I believe that wonder is a great definition of what it feels like to have the Holy Spirit moving in your life. It can feel almost magical, surreal, at times you may ask yourself “I...

A Second Wind

  • Even the youths faint and get weary, and the young men utterly fall; but those who wait for Yahweh will renew their strength. They will mount up with wings like eagles. They will run, and not be weary. They will walk, and not faint. Isaiah 40:30 WEB

    I sat in the corner of my prayer room and wondered how I got here, too exhausted to pray anymore. Out of work for months while the bills piled up around us, there was not much in the natural to be happy about. I thought why even bother, months of praying with my face to the carpet has come to nothing but silence. Now we were packing to move from our home, and I felt abandoned, and alone.

    As I sat there in silence, His presence descended and I had an open vision. It was like a dream, but I was wide awake. I saw myself standing in a boxing ring and putting on the gloves. The Lord was behind me, outside of the ring and He said, 'You're not alone, for I am in your corner and I have prepared you for this day. Now get in there and fight!'

    Something changed in me, and around me. I came out of that room with a renewed hope and at peace. I told my wife that it was going to be ok, I don't know how, but I know that it will because a word from God changes everything.

    By the end of the week, I had a career change: I became a pastor. Also a friend suddenly stepped in and paid all of our bills for the month. When all of my strength was gone, He refreshed me, He gave me hope, He gave us a future. Young men may fall exhausted, but those who wait (hope) in the Lord shall renew their strength. The fight is not over, and you are not out of the game yet. So get back up, and go another round.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father I thank You for being there for me. Please cover me with Your presence today. I need You Lord more than ever before. I want to walk with You, talk with You, and to know You in a special way. In the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

    Note: "Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer" (Romans 12:12). If you have a prayer need, we are here for you! We and the prayer team are ready to lift you up at our private prayer page: RHM Prayer Network

Prayer: Heavenly Father I thank You for being there for me. Please cover me with Your presence today. I need You Lord more than ever before. I want to walk with You, talk with You, and to know You in a special way. In the name of Jesus Christ I pray. Amen. My family and I had a homegoing ceremony for my mother this week. Please pray for us. My mom was the matriarch of the family, so there's hurt on many levels. I'm praying for God's strength daily, it hurts immensely.

Thank You Lord for always being in my corner. Please help me, I'm at the end of my rope. Please help me to find either a 2nd job soon or a different job which pays more so I can pay for housing. Please lead me to what you want me to do for a job in my life. So stressed at my current job. I cannot do this without You.  In Jesus' name, Amen.

Amen and Amen! Isaiah 40:30 is one of my favorite verses! Waiting on the Lord teaches patience, because we are waiting on the Lord and His timing! He is still working on me in that area and some others! "Have Thyne own way Lord, have Thyne own way, You are the potter and I'm the clay, mold me and make me ..." I love You Lord!!!
