    Lectio: take me

    Meditatio: I feel trapped in a dark room. I’m lonely inside, stressed, hurt, and straight up furious. I’ve been too prideful and problems keep building up… it’s time to give someone the weight that can actually carry it. It’s time to talk to someone about these issues that can actually do something and bring peace. Here I am, God. I’m all Yours.

    Oratio:Father, You see what’s going on. You feel my pain and also my joy. I trust you, I need you, please help me, please heal me from the inside out.

    Contemplatio: tough

    Lectio: God-worshipers

    Meditatio: In this verse David asks “What are God-worshipers like?” God responded “Arrows aimed at God’s bull’s-eye.” I want to worship like that. I want to give my all to God! I want my life to be an arrow, pointing directly at how awesome I think God is.(I’m sorry if this doesn’t make sense) I want a deep relationship with God. I worship God,like at church and chapel, But I think God is challenging me to go deeper and worship him in everything I do. I feel like I have this longing to find out more about God. I want to be an arrow pointed at God’s bull’s-eye.

    Oratio: God, I feel like you have been challenging me for a while now to worship you in everything I do. I am usually just praising you in church, but now God I am taking it to the next level. I am longing for a deeper relationship with you God.I want to be a God-worshiper.Amen

    Contemplatio: Excited!!!

    Lectio-I’m looking to you

    Meditatio-Sometimes things in life seem so overwhelming or scary.But when I look to God.I feel His love.I know there’s something to aim for.Something to fight for and to be brave for.I know I will never have all the answers.I will always mess up.But looking to God in my time of crisis and doubt.I know He WILL keep His covenant.Will I strive to do what I must in order for God to use me and bless me and others through me?When I am lost,I need to look to Him even more.

    Oratio-Dear God,thankyou for the oppurtunity You have given me.To be used.And thankyou for reminding me that You love me with a burning passion.That you will take care of me.That You have made a promise to me and I pray You give me undying faith to seek You.Listen to You.Adore You.And to trust You.Amen

    Lectio: rebuild

    God is a master carpentar. He can take something so simple, beat up, and worn down and turn it into a true, genuine masterpiece. That to me is awesome. Somethings He builds, the flesh, or satan ruins. Not like buildings or something, but stuff he builds on the inside. I know God wants to rebuild some relationships that the devil and just other crap have taken over and destroyed. I know God wants to rebulid my friend’s life. I know God wants to rebuild Kingwood to a place of reverence and love for Him. I know He wants to rebuild Thompson and the students in it. He wants to rebuild families.

    Oratio: God build all these up to honor you again.

    Contemplatio: relaxed

    Lectio: confides

    Meditatio: What is more than one to confide in? to speak freely to without fear or fear of misunderstanding. How precious it is to have one who will listen to babbling and silence alike, listen until clarity comes or simply until you tire in it’s pursuit.

    The best conversations I have ever had have been largely unspoken. An exchange of the eyes and understanding, a nod of ascent, a shoulder pressed in solidarity, an arm stretched to steady, a grasp fierce.

    And sometimes words grace and ring with truth that staggers and then steadies.

    Oratio: You know what I want/need God. I don’t have words. Hear my heart.

    Contemplatio: quiet

    Lectio: God-worshipers

    Meditatio: a couple days ago i attended this event called encounter. It was a night of amazing worship and testimonies, the main subject was worshiping, an extremely powerful act and deeper than it is potrayed to be. Life is God’s gift to us and what we would do with it is our gift back to him. Without our heavenly father we would be nowhere right now, God died on the cross to set us free, and that is one reason to worship him. Worship is only for God nobody else. In ecounter pastor Jason described what rated “R” worship would be, he stated it would be giving our absolute all to God, No matter what situation we are in we know God is there and he has a plan and our lives in his merciful hands.

    Oratio: I pray that my life is absolutely consumed by you, I pray that i grow closer and closer to you Lord take away this guilt that i have and anything else feels when we feel like we are so not Good enough, lord in your eyes we are more than good enough, as many times we fail we are always caught in your grace in your eyes we are forgiven and we are free, free to live for you and to not be ashamed to be careless of our surroundings and give you our full control!!!!
    Contemplatio: Victorious! My God is mighty to save!!!!!!!

    I really enjoy Faiths lectio, i love her craving for God, the way she wants to seek him and the way she wants to run after God.

    Bracks comment makes me feel like I’m not alone… everythings going to get back on track sooner or later, Gods still in control…

    I loved Mrs. Kims, things may be quiet but God always hears anyways whether its about nothing or something very needy… like peace.

    i like Brack’s because we all go through tough times, and when we keep going down that road along with the tough times we loose sight of God. and when we pray we do need to tell Him that we trust Him and ask him to lift everything off our shoulders because thats what he wants us to do and when we automatically ask Jesus into our lives were saying ” okay God, i am all yours, please take control over my life! i want to be Your servant!”
