Welcome to the first Motivate Me Monday hosted here at The Fifth Street Palace. I am so excited to be guest hosting this blog carnival. Feel free to link up your motivational posts below. Oh and totally grab the graphic at the top as well if you want to!
100% of my extended family are not saved. This is such a very sad fact in my life... until I think about God's promises.
The Parable of the Persistent Widow
Then Jesus told his disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up. He said: "In a certain town there was a judge who neither feared God nor cared about men. And there was a widow in that town who kept coming to him with the plea, 'Grant me justice against my adversary.'
"For some time he refused. But finally he said to himself, 'Even though I don't fear God or care about men, yet because this widow keeps bothering me, I will see that she gets justice, so that she won't eventually wear me out with her coming!' "
And the Lord said, "Listen to what the unjust judge says. And will not God bring about justice for his chosen ones, who cry out to him day and night? Will he keep putting them off? I tell you, he will see that they get justice, and quickly. However, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on the earth?"
How I long for my family to know God. I long for us to worship together, to pray together and to lift each other up in righteousness. This is my fervent prayer.
Keep praying, do not give up. Ask God to restore your faith when it dwindles. Pray that those who are captive in unholy lifestyles will be set free.
Mighty to Save By Hillsongs (Just the Chorus)
Saviour, He can move the mountains,
My God is Mighty to save,
He is Mighty to save.
Forever, Author of salvation,
He rose and conquered the grave,
Jesus conquered the grave.
These are such powerful lyrics that inspire me to carry on praying for my family.
