How has your week been going? I updated my website ... the Tidbits, the About section, and the Prayer Wall. I received some prayer requests and I felt led to include some prayers I simply saw on Facebook. I am praying for these people and their needs. Please do not doubt this. I think one of my biggest struggles in life was trusting whether people were really praying for me when they said they were. Was I being naïve in thinking others truly cared enough to take time out of their crazy, busy lives to pray for me and my needs? Then on the flip side of these thoughts were the thoughts, "Those who are praying, do they truly know how to pray?" Sounds pretty crazy, huh? Well it is not. I struggled with praying for a very long time ... how was I supposed to do it ... was I using the right words ... was I referring to correct scripture ... did I pray long enough ... did I speak eloquently ... was I even worthy of Him hearing my prayers? Have you never had these thoughts? If not, then you are truly a blessed one. After all of these years of walking and growing, I still struggle with being worthy! I could write an entire book on this, but suffice it to say I am praying for needs today and I know He is listening! It does not matter if others are praying for you as they say they are. It is only vital that you are taking your petitions to Him yourself. It is great to know without doubt that you can trust others to join you in prayer. It is reassuring to know you have a church family to hold you up in prayer. However, ultimately, He wants to hear from you ... personally! I do not make light of the fact that it is biblical and powerful for others to join you in prayer. It is just as important that you be praying also. We cannot rely on the prayers of others and just rest assuredly in their petitions to Our Father. We must go to Him ourselves and seek His face!
I guess what I just shared above is why I felt led to write this blog ... LOL! Amazing! Simply amazing how He leads and directs.
On another note, my website hit an all time high this past week with over 1000 views. This is AMAZING! I have never had more than 500 views in one week. Thank you!!!! I truly thank you from the bottom of my heart. You viewed ... you shared ... you helped me to grow! I am blessed for each and everyone of you. I would love ... LOVE ... to hear from you, whether personally or anonymously.
Have a great day! Love you guys!
