I have been reading and studying Samuel on my own. I have never really read the story of David and Goliath even though I have heard about it so often. Even after reading it, I cannot really imagine how it would feel to face a Goliath in real life. Now I do…
Setting up this social enterprise has really been doing the impossible. Making it successful is like facing a Goliath. I feel very much like David. I have nothing fanciful, no money, not a penny, not much skills or experience of battlefield (business in the modern sense), but only the will and obedience to the Lord. Last week I wonder if it was my own illusion to start this. But looking back at how things have gotten along without me doing much and how things have progressed albeit slower than I like, I can’t be doing this on my own will. Yes, my ambition and greed are there, my own craving of success and fame is also there. And that is what I think God is trying to teach me to discard. This is not a road of fame, or fortune for myself. Yes, I know deep down success will come for JJ and MOLI, but the Lord will prepare me with enough humbling lessons by then to know it is not for myself the Lord has given me this mission field.
Father in heaven,
Hallowed be thy Name, thy kingdom come, on earth as it is in heaven. Father I thank you for restoring my health and cure me of the cold almost instantly overnight. Lord, I pray that may this renewed strength be used for your glory and the coming of your kingdom through my work with the social enterprise. I dedicate everything about this social enterprise, jubilant jewellery, into your hands and trust that Lord it is you who will do the work, you who will open and close doors, and bring to completion the work that you have started through me.
Lord, I pray that you will provide me with the money, the resources and the advisors that I need to make this social enterprise a success. I also pray that you will anoint those whom I met and may they share the same passion and love for the mentally ill, the destitute and the trafficked. May you bring into my midst Godly people who will be willing to partner and guide me.
Father, may I be so faithful and trusting in you to provide for my daily needs, may I never complain, or seek more than what I need, but father may you also grant the desires of my heart if they are aligned with your will. Lord, forgive me for the way I have treated my mother and Billy in the past few days. I know they love me, so allow them to forgive me and allow me to learn to love them more.
Father, I thank you for all the photographers that you have brought to me for the fashion shoot. May you bless each and everyone of them who have been in contact with me and may I be an example of Christ in my relationships with them.
Father I also pray for Billy, may he know you, may you call on him, and he will yearn for the knowledge of you, the understanding of your love for which you shower on him unconditionally. Father, may I learn to pray for my beloved daily.
Lord, it will never be easy following you and doing your work. Strengthen me, make me bold and courageous, fearless and always gracious in failures, make me a woman after your own heart today Lord. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen
