Reflection on Prayer

As Christians we know if we pray full-heartedly our prayers will be answered.

Perhaps your prayers are very specific or more general in nature, but we pray faithfully.

Sometimes we pray for the same thing many times a day. We try to be obedient and we wait for God to answer.

Most humans are impatient by nature, and with today’s fast paced lifestyles it’s no wonder.

Sometimes it feels like that is all we get done doing. Waiting for answers.   We get frustrated. Worry creeps in farther.

Stop and Pray. Yes God knows your needs already, but He’s never too busy to listen again.  You feel better don’t you?

Wait and watch for His time and His plan to unfold. It’s coming…wait.

We continue to plug along doing what is needed to live. We don’t realize God is answering your prayers already. We miss him working because they aren’t unfolding the way you planned. Here He is lovingly answering them to carry forth His plan for you.

Stop and Praise…take a few minutes,close your eyes and see His blessings in disguise.

You may have needed to face many trials to learn what God needed to teach you, but He always answers.

Keep your faith strong and just stop and pray.

Blessings to All

Paths of Life

This past month has been trying in ever sense. Mental, emotional and physical, and spiritual limits have been tested to the fullest.

In life we find many paths leading to many different destinations. Sometimes the choices we make are rash. A fly by my seat of my pants kinda thing. Others are examined, picked apart and research is done.

I’m normally in this last category and think things to death.  This last month hasn’t really been that way. Old feelings, old habits and bad choices were the result.

That doesn’t mean I’m bad. Just like it doesn’t mean you are bad.  Those bad choices do have consequences, however we can turn to our Heavenly Father just like we can turn to our earthly family and find strength and hope when the fall-out hits. And trust me it will hit with a vengeance at times.

 

Psalms 27:14: Wait for the Lord, be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.

I struggle with this daily. I know there are others who do as well. Remember to think, feel and wait. God has a plan for us all if we wait. Choose your paths wisely. Pull on your support teams. Reach out in prayer.  Make your best efforts to be obedient and honest with family, friends, yourself and the Lord. Stay on God’s intended path in life.

 

Blessings to all.

Been ages since posted a blog sorry.  Been trying to deal with life……led me to question what has my life become in all honesty..  the answer doesn’t really thrill me.   Plugging through pain, work and sleep….somewhere in last 2- 3 months I’ve lost myself…it shames me to say that. Maybe could blame it on bipolar…depression…fibro… but won’t. I made choice to close self off yet again. Why…dunno …my moods somewhat regulated with help meds…pain too…Tylenol queen here. My real pain meds make me half dumb…depression can kiss my rear I have so much to be thankful for right now…I’ve beaten an addiction yet again, I maintaining weight, I sleep mostly, my guys are proud of me, I strong in own right….life is cruising…bills paid and camping season is upon us….looking forward to making friends…regulating life and enjoying the campfire….enjoy the simple pleasures In Life…we can all learn to grow from them. Memories made can never be taken away…I’ll still struggle to find new me but will always be brutally honest…My life is what is…loving that God understands that and that every baby step I take is step forward to glorious life. Wishing friends and family can find peace today.   I did when I talked to God….

Should be writing Maggie right now since words just spilling out but eyes heavy and in pain yet again. Read article that says fibro comes from hands…dunno wth they talking about…how can hand nerves effect back, knees, chest, hips…think more research is in order…

What can we learn today? ?? This is the questions of the hour  for me right now…

My twins answered my questions honestly tonight. I’ve  frustrated them and Jim with my actions and behavior. For that I’m sorry.

Many times in the Bible it’s referenced “I will not leave you nor forsake you”  somewhere along the way I’ve forgotten that.

But what does that mean really??

It is quite simple really. God  wants you to lean on Him in everything. Anytime, any place, any situation. ..  simple right??…not always.

We are all prone to make bad choices. We are all prone to backslide on our journey.  But God’s love and grace can combat it all.  His word tells us we are never alone. Reach out to your support systems,reach out in prayer…..you are never alone.

Life moves at whatever pace you let it.

 

When faced with challenges we either get run over by them or tackle them. I’ve recently been run over by one particular challenge. That doesn’t necessarily mean I’m weak, it means I have given up on myself at that moment. This is not a good feeling. It brings so many mixed emotions and makes me question my self worth.  It was made crystal clear to me in the middle of a deep heartfelt prayer from a very special friend that I’m worth a lot to a lot of people. God understands my struggles but loves me anyway. My family, extended family and friends do too.  Remember you are never really alone.

Struggles we get through have made us into the people we are today. Maybe today you’re struggling too. Stop…say a prayer and see just what God has in store for you. Life is a continuous journey, nobody said  it would be easy but you can be thankful you woke today. You can be thankful you got dressed and were able to tend to something…it could be something as simple as saying hello to someone or brushing your teeth. Remember no matter what you are dealing with you have someone who loves you. Our heavenly father is always there even if you question that.    Take one day at a time and embrace life. You are important.

Sending prayers to those who will accept them. Taking prayers for anyone willing to give them up.

 

Blessings to All…

Only got half chapter done today in Maggie, book two of Alpa Trilogy.  Busting head and funny vision prevented more. Tomorrow is another day. Tomorrow night’s group should be good. Don’t really know if will have anything new since have four different projects started right now…geesh I need reality check on time management I guess. Started new Bible plan on you version and did read my daily Scriptures…this plus considering how unworthy of His love, I feel. I’m a screw up hands down but I can admit that freely because God loves me in all my struggles and failures as well as in all my strengths and victories. Sometimes I forget that. Sometimes I forget that I’m His work in progress. I’ll never truly be a done work and I’m content with that, at least for today. Sending blessings and prayers to those that will have them, asking for few from those that aren’t afraid to pray…journal time…
