Overcoming, persisting and never giving up

Good Morning Heavenly Father. What a wonderful morning. Such a bright sunny day, with wisps of clouds here and there and a gentle breeze. It reminds me of how marvelous you created this world. It is amazing. Your fingerprints are all over it! Thank you for loving us so much that you would go to such lengths to make this world so wonderful just for us. Thank you. And thank you for the scripture that talks about your daughter you love, your Lindsey!

We are experiencing trouble on every side, but are not crushed; we are perplexed, but not driven to despair; we are persecuted, but not abandoned; we are knocked down, but not destroyed, 10 always carrying around in our body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be made visible in our body. 11 For we who are alive are constantly being handed over to death for Jesus’ sake, so that the life of Jesus may also be made visible in our mortal body. (2Corinthians 4:8-11 NET)

Lord, it’s me. I’m sill here. Now I am here on behalf of your daughter Lindsey. Lord, your Word seems to be talking about how she lives … how she lives for you! And so I pray this over you now Lindsey. Yes! Lindsey, you have experienced trouble on every side, but you have never been crushed. You have been in many perplexing situations around the world, yet you do not fall into despair! You have felt persecuted, but you know that God has never abandoned you. You have been knocked down more than once, even during a performance, but you always get up. You are persistent! Nothing has been able to destroy you. And in the midst of all this, you continue to always carry Jesus around within you. Everywhere that you go around the world, Jesus can be seen working in you. Yes, you are fully alive and energized even while constantly being delivered unto death for the sake of Jesus! And that is how Jesus is so visible in your mortal body. And so I pray now for you Lindsey. I pray that you could sense the presence of the Lord around you every day and that he would daily fill you with his joy. I pray that his joy within you would be a basis for your strength. I pray that the thousands of people who see you during your tour would see something special in you and wonder just what it it. And I pray that the Lord would open the eyes of those who find themselves wondering just that. I pray that they would want to live like that themselves. And we give the glory to the Lord. The glory is all his. All the glory, all the time. I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen.

King James Version for your reference:

We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair;

Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed;

10 Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body.

11 For we which live are always delivered unto death for Jesus’ sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh.

KJV translation note

The King James Version is a beautiful translation of the original Hebrew and Greek, however I sometimes find Old English hard to understand fully. 1 or 2 other translations can help clarify what it is saying so I can understand it. More Info CLICK: References
