If every day started off this perfect...
life would be boring!
I am quiet now before the Lord, just as a child who is weaned from the breast. Yes, my begging has been stilled. O Israel, you too should quietly trust in the Lord- Now and always.
A few weeks ago I presented the question, "What are you trusting God for today?"
As humans we are subject to take things in our own hands and control the results in our favor. I can tell you over and over again how I handled situations and to my own demise, I made things worse as a result of my actions. The hardest thing for us to do sometimes is to do NOTHING.
Part of being submissive to God’s will is to let Him handle things. Impatient beings that we are, we don’t see the results soon enough and the urge to do something is much stronger than the illogic of waiting on the Lord.
I am a stubborn soul. I am still learning to be patient in the Lord. Spontaneous prayer is my only recourse sometimes to distract my thoughts from being actions.
I truly believe that when your heart is with God, you have a true heart for the needs of others.
This week I have had a full prayer list.
I have on my prayer list my friends, their children, my niece expecting a baby boy, and their young family.
I am in prayer for the loss of a local young soldier killed in Afghanistan, and peace to be with the family during this time of grief.
I pray for new relationships between my friends, not only romantic, but also friendships; that they may grow.
I pray about healing for those who are ill, and the people I know that are facing fatal illnesses.
I pray about everyday trials we are all facing and I lift all these up to God. It is all out of my control, but I lay these things at the feet of the Lord and know he will handle these situations.
I would like to encourage you to realize that this life is not a time for us to be selfish, but to love others the
best we can, with that love coming from God, and let our actions be Godly.
Letting God be God. Peace, hope, thanksgiving and joy to you.
