This past week I realized just how much I spend on other things and not on things that will last for eternity. As I sit here typing away on my laptop listening to the dripping of the raindrops and the quiet sound of instrumental music (from the movie Soul Surfer) it is so peaceful and reminds me that God is here with me when even I feel the most alone.
The past few days I wasn't feeling so good and I was trying to figure out what was causing me to feel the way I was. I went to the doctor, chiropractor and could not stop thinking about what might be wrong. Thoughts often make us get carried away and lead us astray from God. Throughout the week of worry I was praying that God would heal me since I didn't get any answers. I couldn't do anything else but pray and ask God to help. And by tonight I feel somewhat better- I don't know what tomorrow will bring, but God brought me through today! Some verses that helped me the past few days....
But when he asks, he must believe and not doubt, because he who doubts is like a wave of the sea- blown and tossed by the wind. That man should not think he will receive anything from the Lord.
If you believe you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer
These verses really helped me remember that I shouldn't doubt in my prayers and God, but I should rather believe in what I am praying and asking God. How often I doubt that what I pray for will not occur because I don't have enough faith. God tells us to believe in what we are praying and we should not doubt. So if you are praying for something and need God's help right now in your own life- believe in what you are asking and praying and God will help you- it may take some time, but He hears you and will not give you more than what you can handle- remember He gives His hardest battles to His strongest soldiers!
Hope that you all are doing well and thanks for dropping by. I also wanted to thank you for all your prayers and comments- I sure needed the prayers and I know they helped!!
