This journey is unlike any other I have ever ventured upon; all of my other journeys didn’t have me under the weight of so many crosses, doing all I can to stay alive while moving forward in my life. This journey also represents a turning point in my life. I ask You Lord to please continue to guide and direct me as I move forward, closer and closer to You. You know me better than I know myself and you know where my heart is. Yes I selfishly desire to serve you constantly, and yes there really isn’t anything or anyone in this world or in this life that can capture my heart like you do. But with that all said Lord I openly admit the challenges I face. I have no fear of them, nor will I back down or redirect my intentions or direction. I shall remain loyal to you and consistent in my commitment to you. People in general can disappoint and hurt each other as I know well; You alone Lord loves me, You alone Lord satisfy every possible need and desire I have, I only need You. As this journey home to You begins, I ask that You continue to show me the way, like You always do; I also ask that during this journey, if it be Your will for me, please open many new doors of opportunity to only further serve You in any possible capacity You so see fit for me. I also need more help to stay further away from intentional sin; yes I am weak, but in You Lord, I sustain my purity and You know I only desire You above all things. This world is very deceitful and very misleading, and the evil one has many soldiers to advance on those of us who are weak or worn down. I thank You Lord for always helping me find the strength I need to remain strong and loyal to You.
