Last week I was praying and struggling through what God wanted me to do in a certain situation. I really knew what He wanted me to do just wasn’t ready to be totally committed and obedient to Him. Then I read this and I knew. Take a moment now to read her post. It is the post on Jan. 22. Doesn’t it bring a whole new perspective to decisions we make.
While, I am on a blog roll. Add this girl to your reader list. You will be blessed every time.
She has a story every married woman needs to read.
Then get out your kleenex – as if you haven’t already cried through the other stuff I recommended.
Then pray the prayer Nehemiah prayed in Neh.1 for Haiti.
“The wall of Jerusalem is broken down, and its gates have been burned with fire.”When I heard these things, I sat down and wept. For some days I mourned and fasted and prayed before the God of heaven. Then I said: “O LORD, God of heaven, the great and awesome God, who keeps his covenant of love with those who love him and obey his commands, let your ear be attentive and your eyes open to hear the prayer your servant is praying before you day and night for your servants, the people of Israel. I confess the sins we Israelites, including myself and my father’s house, have committed against you. We have acted very wickedly toward you. We have not obeyed the commands, decrees and laws you gave your servant Moses.
“Remember the instruction you gave your servant Moses, saying, ‘If you are unfaithful, I will scatter you among the nations, but if you return to me and obey my commands, then even if your exiled people are at the farthest horizon, I will gather them from there and bring them to the place I have chosen as a dwelling for my Name.'”They are your servants and your people, whom you redeemed by your great strength and your mighty hand. O Lord, let your ear be attentive to the prayer of this your servant and to the prayer of your servants who delight in revering your name. Give your servant success today by granting him favor in the presence of this man.”
