EdgeGodIn.com

Dear Lord,

Help! I am attached to positions, responses, people and situations outside of myself and it’s stressing me out. Fill me with the ability to choose 1 attachment: my heart to yours, my will to yours. It is for freedom that you have set me free from the shiny objects and loud voices in the world, help me to declare with conviction what St. Paul declared at the end of his life: I consider all things a loss compared to the surpassing knowledge of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. Interrupt me when I am spun out because I have attached my meaning and significance to the outside world. Bring me back home to you where my peace is profound and my joy is complete.

Holy Scripture Focus:

  • Matthew 16:24-26
  • Philippians 3:4-14
  • 1 Timothy 5:3-10

Dear Lord I have the ability to set the entire course of my life on fire simply by a careless word fueled by a negative thought, conclusion or assumption about myself or another person. Forgive me Lord for allowing my tongue to direct the course of my life. Just like a small rudder on a boat, my tongue can run my entire ship into ruin.

Teach me how to tame my tongue so that every word that spills out of my mouth flows from your mind and heart. Help me to not let my tongue be the boss of me, I want to resurrect your power within me so that you become the boss of my thoughts and words. Fill my mind with all that is good, right, beautiful, excellent and praise worthy and make my words flow from this sanctuary of beauty.

Edge God In Podcast 32: W.O.W. Your Mind in Christ

Edge God In Podcast 32: W.O.W. Your Mind in Christ 

The mind governed by the flesh is death, but the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace. The mind governed by the flesh is hostile to God; it does not submit to God’s law, nor can it do so. Those who are in the realm of the flesh cannot please God. You, however, are not in the realm of the flesh but are in the realm of the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God lives in you. And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, they do not belong to Christ. But if Christ is in you, then even though your body is subject to death because of sin, the Spirit gives life because of righteousness. And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies because of his Spirit who lives in you. Romans 8:6-11

Edge God In Podcast 26: 3 Excuses That Edge God Out

Dear Lord, I give you permission to slow me down. Too often I am unwilling to edge you into my busy life, as if being busy makes me more important or purposeful. Teach me how to hear your invitation to draw near to you today. Override my agenda, to-do lists and pursuit to be enough and fill them with your presence Lord. Forgive me for every declined invitation I have sent back to you. Forgive me for putting things above my relationship with you and the people I love. I know your word does not return to you void but accomplishes the purpose for which it’s sent. If I am too busy you will use someone else to accomplish your will on earth. Wake me up to remember what I have learned during the storms in my life. Lord, where else do I need to go, for in you and with you I lack nothing. No more excuses, I choose you. Move me to draw closer to you today than yesterday.

Dear Lord, you allowed yourself to be interrupted for the sake of healing, encouragement, love, teachable moments and overall presence to those in need.
