Think about a person who you can count on in life. That person who is faithful to God and their prayers make a difference. That person stands out because of their faith. God is counting on us to do his will and we are counting on God to answer the cry of our hearts. We make a great team. When I was in my early thirties, I saw older women praying at an altar at church. I watched them from afar but wondered what they prayed for every Sunday. One day, I began to talk to one of them. She explain to me this scripture:
Psalm 27:14 New International Version (NIV)
14 Wait for the Lord;
be strong and take heart
and wait for the Lord.
PRAYER ~ WAITING
Praying for God's will and waiting for the answer
I only knew this woman of God by the name Sister Trivitt. She had two others ladies who sat by her too. There husbands wasn't far away but the three women would gather early on Sunday mornings to pray for the needs of their church congregation and their families. They didn't know I watched them each Sunday, but I looked forward to hearing stories from them on Sunday's.
As I grow older, I have become of those older women who tell stories. Stories of God's faithfulness and how he can bring us through the worst things of life. Sometimes things end in bad ways, but there can be peace within us. A peace of knowing God is at work in lives and stirring up some faith sure helps.
I AM COUNTING ON YOU ~
Last night in class, I was talking with a friend. A friend who reminded me of how God brings lives together at just the right time. Nobody knows the depth of your story but God. I know I have a faithful family who loves me and supports me in all I do. I've made mistakes but I have learned to forgive myself plus others. Life is short and I want my family to know they can count on me. In all seasons of life, we can grow into a better person. I have seen God does miracles and I stand on counting on God. He totally forgives and forgets the mess ups of life. How about you? Are you counting on God today? Do you need to realize some thoughts to him and begin again?
God, I thank you for a new day. A day to make a difference in others lives and mine. I thank you for bring the readers to my blog. I pray for them, their families and friends for you to be constant in their lives. A source of strength and new learned behavior daily to let go of what we can not change. Hold onto what we can change and allow the freedom of you to enter our hearts. A peace beyond a human understand and a joy unspeakable will rest in their minds. Nobody but you God knows what each one is going through. Some need complete miracles of life, others need jobs, house, car, food and all the need of life. Help them for right connections in life and great friends. As this Thanksgiving Seasons is here, we rest in knowing we can count on you and you can count on us! AMEN
I AM COUNTING ON GOD ~
Sometimes we must wait for an answer, but keep waiting and believing BIG!
Purpose this a good day. Live in today my friends, live in today!
