Place of Prayer

I am overwhelmed this morning with the dire situation of our country and our world. As a mom, I still want to protect my children, even though they are all adults. I would prefer they would all be under one roof again. My roof. I simply cannot turn off the mom in me.

I texted my youngest son today. He and his children live a thousand miles away. I told him the heaviness of my heart. He responded with precious words of wisdom. I am humbled. Sometimes we need to allow our children to grow up and perfect on the teachings of their youth.

From Ezekiel, my son:

I love you too.
I understand your worries. But try not too. Nothing can happen in this life unless God allows it too. He is in control no matter how evil people are. This weight of worry is supposed to be on Jesus and Jesus alone, not you. If you stop dwelling on these things you’ll begin to see the bright side to things and peace will begin to enter your spirit.

I will lay this worry, my fears, this burden at Jesus’s feet.

Isaiah 41:10 Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

Sometimes we need to be reminded of the power of God, and stop acting as though we are God. Many things are absolutely out of our control. Pray for the ones who fight earnestly for the good of the people. God has placed good, intelligent, strong people in areas where they will make a difference. Pray for them.

We all have a place. Sometimes it’s in a place of prayer. While prayer may seem as though it doesn’t count for much, it is the most powerful place to be. Do the right things in your corner of the world and pray without ceasing.

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
Rejoice always,
Pray without ceasing,
Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

Place of prayer…pray without ceasing. Let’s do our part in these troubling times.

Thank you, Ezekiel, for showing me the strength of your faith this morning. I praise God that you’ve become the godly man I hoped and prayed you’d be. ♥️

  1. Hey Andi… Hey, I’m just here to tell you I’m leaving. I was looking for someone who followed my old blog today and all I did was search for their name. I got a couple eye fulls of women… I struggled with porn for a terribly long time. This place has been hard on me because I feel uninteresting and I struggle socially. But after seeing all that, this place has become another source of something I’ve been avoiding for years now.

    I’m just telling you this because you’ve been pretty awesome. You know how to get a hold of me if you need or want to.

    1. I do understand. You know how to contact me as well. I wish you well and I will remember you in prayer. It takes a strong person to avoid something powerful that weakens them. I am proud of you. Hugs.

      1. Hug! It sucks… I really hate this but I mean.. I just searched a name. The next thing I know I was staring lady parts in the face. I scrolled down to get away from that and there’s another post with more parts exposed. 🤦‍♂️ first thing I wanted to do was indulge but I just left. When I got myself together I came back and deleted the name. I didn’t even want to tempt me to search again. I also hate it because it seems to be what I do…. Leave.
