So in a mire of muck, God has swooped me into the rushing waters once again. We are now in our Prayer series at Church. For multiple reasons, we are being challenged to dig deep into prayer. I pray everyday, I even speak to God all day throughout the day, but this series is really "challenging" me to dig deeper. Recognize God for the blessed Entity He is and to really give everything to Him. I had a really difficult week last week and although a wonderful visit with my son, the aftermath was quite difficult. You see he has accepted his term and he is doing well physically, but I think he is beginning to have a difficult time emotionally. He is accustomed to being in the center of a big group and doesn't know how to be alone without being lonely. And my aching mother's heart is breaking right now. My biggest prayer today is that God wraps His Loving Arms around my son and shows him that he is never alone and that God will direct his path, he only needs to ask. But I think that he is still hesitant. So, there was a difficult request made this weekend, to which I weakly agreed. Afterward, I knew the agreement was wrong and I quickly made the decision to reverse, but unfortunately we don't get to communicate and when he called me the next day sounding upset, I relented again. By Monday, I was panicked and didn't know what to do. So what did I do? Well, my prayers directed me to God, give it to Him. And I was reminded of 1 Corinthians 10:13 "No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it."
God is ever faithful.
So, within not even 5 minutes of this prayer / revelation, I received a phone call which led to a conversation which gave me my AHA moment. Then a conversation with my husband wrapped it up like a bow. I know that the final resolution may not be met with accepting ears, but I am praying that God will give the same peace which He afforded to me yesterday.
Never doubt it, all it takes is an honest request, an open heart and the faith / trust which allows Him to provide the blessing.
Oh and remember, it may not always be the answer you expect, but He has a bigger plan than we could ever have for ourselves.
Father, thank You for your provision, thank You for the Love and Peace which you afford me each and every day. Please reign this Love and Peace on my family and allow them the same. Please continue to walk with us through this Journey.
Your Ever Loving Daughter
