Faithful to Complete It. #write31days

“One of the tragedies of our life is that we keep forgetting who we are.” ~Henri Nouwen

Sweet Jesus, I crave Your word. I hunger to hear from You each day. Please speak Father. Please guide and direct. Please let me not get caught up in the circumstances of life, in distractions and attractions. Please Lord. I need You and You alone.

Jesus, you selected people who were not waiting at a church for some divine revelation – You picked people who were working hard. You didn’t speak to them in a language they didn’t understand – You used everyday speak. And You didn’t sit and wait for them to find You. You went to where they lived and worked. You confronted them in their everyday, going about their business lives.

In that same way, You spoke – and speak – now in my everyday, going about my business life. You say You will equip and prepare me. You say I can share the good news without a special degree or pedigree. All I need is to follow You, to spend time with You, to hold close to You. Because the Kingdom is still at hand, and the time is still now. Thank You!

Lord, let me not forget You are truly in charge, and it is You who will pour through my everyday life. I don’t need to sit in a church or on a mountain to serve You fully. I don’t need to pack it all up and leave my hometown or my home country to share the news. I just need to follow, listen, obey, and share.

Forgive me for not remembering that. Forgive me for not keeping Your faith and confidence at the forefront, because Your word says You began a good work, and You will indeed be faithful to complete it. Your word says all things will work together, like a great recipe, for good and Your glory in my life. Your word says I am a royal priest. You have given me a robe and a crown. You have adopted me into Your holy family.

I am yours.

What do you need to remember today about who you are? About Whose you are? How may I pray for you? 


Last year, I shared the stories about pictures I’ve taken. This year during the month of October, I’m opening up my journal and sharing prayers. They’re not eloquent or poetic – they’re simple honest talks with God. Some prayers are joyful and some are screams. Some are said in the morning and some at night. It’s my hope the words might help someone else find the words.

So Hey, It's Me 2

About Ronne Rock

YOU ARE GOD'S HAND-CRAFTED DESIGN. AND I WANT TO CELEBRATE YOU.

We're in this together, and I am for you. I secure road signs with a hammer of hope, and clear the debris so they can be seen. I am your encourager. I walk and keep walking. Cheer and keep cheering. I invest, dive deep, and cherish most the stories being written in the lives of women who believe restoration is a reality on earth as it is in heaven. God holds the pen in those stories, “That one - I hold her. And that one - she is My delight. And that one - never snatched away.”  I am a mouthpiece of celebration for women. Redemption is our song. You can find even more encouragement in  "For You, Love" the prayer journals that invite you to respond, and in Everbloom, a collection of stories from the Redbud Writers Guild. I'm currently writing One Woman Can Change the World, set to publish late spring 2020 (Revell). I'm honored to be represented by Credo Communications.

  1. Our baby church plant is struggling for her breath. As we gather tonight, possibly to consider a “re-plant”, I want to remember “He is truly in charge.” Thank you, dearest friend.
