“Open my heart Lord, to new relationships – new covenants. This blessing is not leaving me! And the devil doesn’t like it! I’m gonna walk in Your Blessing Lord. Thank You. Amen”
I was reading through my prayer journal when I found this prayer I wrote 2 weeks ago. I don’t remember writing it. I don’t know if I was watching a sermon or reading my Bible, but I do know that God answered this prayer and is still answering it.
New relationships is something I struggle with. I get comfortable with my very few friends and I want to shut everyone else out. But this past weekend, God blessed us with beautiful weather and a bunch of us decided to play some volleyball. So here I am, on a team with 6 girls that I don’t even know their names. So I learned their names and let my guard down, and enjoyed spending time with people I normally did not hang out with.
After volleyball, we moved to the softball field where even more people came out to play. It was the most fun I’ve had since I have been here. It was awesome how so many of us came together and enjoyed each others company. And now, a week later, I see my new friends around the camp and I know that God is opening doors that I’ve kept closed. And He’s opening my heart to receive His people who are in need of Him.
