Just Checking In

So, we’re halfway through May Justice Reign.  How are you doing?  Are you: Just making it?  Thriving?  Failing?  Joyful?  Numb?  Don’t ask?!  –LOL!

Have you been in prayer over how you want to be used this month?

What has God been saying to you?

What is holding you back?  Is it trusting God with stepping out and being a part of Justice?

Proverbs small leaves

Lisa Hefner has some beautiful words about trust:

Trust is something that seems easily broken.  Trust is something that needs to be gained.  Trust is something that has to come by someone willing to take that first step.  Trust comes by faith.  Jesus gave us a secret that He needed to live out His life.  It was through the Holy Spirit.  The Spirit of God is with us.  We may not always understand how God is working, but we have something that will give us the strength needed while we are looking to Him to work in our lives.  Put your hand in His hand today, you will see Him moving on your behalf.


Lisa Hefner is a regular writer for the Authentic Grace blog.  We love her heart, spirit and wisdom that she lends us each month.

Savor these words as we move through this month of Justice.

Consider this prayer today:

O living bread, that came down from Heaven to give life to the world!  O loving shepherd of our souls, we commend to you particularly the sick, the unhappy, the poor and all who beg for food and employment, imploring for all and every one the assistance of your providence; we commend to you the families, so that they may be fruitful centers of Christian life.  May the abundance of your grace be poured out over all.    {Pope John XXIII   1881-1963}

Keep your heart in prayer over what God wants to do in you and through you.


If you’re following the May Justice Reign Prayer Calendar, the prayer for today is:

“Pray for the 35 million people suffering from HIV/AIDS.  Pray that a cure is found and health can be restored.”
