Created these onesie's for a very special little girl!! All onesies are $10 except the Fla. Gators one is $12, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org to order yours. These make GREAT Baby Shower, Christmas Gift ideas!!
Application Steps:Commit to “pray to.” Pray the “pray to” prayer until you begin to experience Him every day. Journal the changes God is makes in you life.
Reflections:What is the Lord teaching me through today’s devotion?
How will I respond to this “pray to” challenge?
The Prayer that Changed My Life
Wendy Pope “Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us…” Ephesians 3:20 (NIV)
Twenty-two thousand women sat on the edge of their seats as the teacher standing center stage asked, “Do you want to have an insatiable love for Jesus?” Her words hung in the air. Then she answered, “Pray to. If you want an insatiable love for Jesus, then pray to.”
Scrambling to find my pen and struggling to spell the word insatiable, I wrote these simple yet powerful words in my conference notebook. The words stung my heart. As they fell from her lips, I knew this was a love for Jesus I did not have.
What I did have was church membership, a lot of church service, and some love. While Jesus was my Savior, something was missing.
I realized I had asked Jesus to be my Savior but not allowed Him to be my Lord. I loved Him for what He did but not for who He was. At age 34, I wanted to cry out this “pray to” prayer. But I wondered, “What must God think of me?”
Service to Him had been my life. Dedication to my church was paramount. But love? How could I not really love Jesus? Certainly He would be disinclined to hear such an elementary prayer from a grown woman who’d been a Christian much of her life.
My thoughts were misguided. It was a prayer God wanted to answer immeasurably more than I could think or imagine. He wanted me to have an insatiable love for Him!
The speaker’s challenge that day became a lifestyle of prayer for me. Over time the emptiness in my heart was filled with a love for Jesus I had never known. My heart not only praised Him for what He had done in my life, but now loved Him for who He was: my Lord.
My obedience and service started to flow from a heart of love instead of duty. Lies that once shaped my life and negative feelings about myself where shattered by the honesty and power of His Word. The security of knowing Him as Lord gave me what I had been looking for my whole life. I found freedom in knowing who I am and courage to live like it’s true.
The promise and power of today’s key verse proved faithful in my life, changing me forever. Today, I want to challenge and invite you the same. Do you want to love Jesus with an insatiable love?
If you want to, then pray to.
Humble yourself before the Lord and ask Him to help you love Him. He will give you immeasurably more than you can imagine. Over time the emptiness in your heart will be filled with a love for Jesus you have never known. Your heart will praise Him for what He has done and for who He is—your Lord. If you want to, pray to.
Dear Lord, I want to love You with an insatiable love. Answer my prayer immeasurably more than I can think of or imagine. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
Created these items for my daughter's upcoming Baby Shower, I love the way they turned out. Although I have to say right now I have a LOVE/HATE relationship going on with Vinyl!! But I do like the way they turned out and hope she will.
I used my Fairy Cut Software for the Curlz font which my daughter loves.
Monogrammed Piggy Bank Found these little frames at M's and knew what I wanted to do with them. Love the little black bow on the frames!
Name Plate, this is where my love/hate relationship came in!!! But I LOVE IT!

Welcome to this weekend's Cancer Support Blog Hop that Erica over at http://mycricutcraftroom.blogspot.com/ is hosting! If you did not start at her site please head over there now. You should have come from Emily's blog if you are on the right track. For this blog hop I created a "Hope" Wordbook for a very dear friend, loved the way it turned out!
Cricut Cartridges Used: George and Basic Shapes, Don Juan, Indie Art, Stand and Salute, Home Accents, and Serenade
The paper I used was some left over glitter white and pink paper from DCWV, breast cancer paper was some I had left over, I believe it is from Karen Foster. Used some small embellishments I had sitting around.
Word book squares and letters were cut out at 6.41 inches high. Once I had all the words cut out, I adhered the paper to it, added the embellsihments, VOILA! It doesn't take that long to create one of these. Hope you enjoyed my creation today, I know the lady receiving it will love it.
Thanks for stopping by today, I love to read your comments and
would love to have you become a follower if you would like.
