"Walking in the way and the love of the Lord"
“IN QUIETNESS AND CONFIDENCE SHALL BE YOUR STRENGTH.”
Come to me. Sit with me. Sit in the quiet with me. Rest. Pray. We hear these words in our hearts. We read them in scripture. And still we find it hard to sit quietly with the Lord.
We try but our minds wander......problems to solve, solutions to find, thoughts scattered and wild with worry. I know, I've been there. And I will say to you as I say to myself, STOP. Stop trying to come up with solutions. Stop trying to figure things out. Imagine all of your prayers being in one book and Our Lord is taking care of each one of your concerns. Then we begin to worry and and our trust goes out the window. In that moment we are erasing our prayers from the pages of our personal prayer book, basically telling our Lord that we can handle it, which we can't and that is why we are praying in the first place. And on and on and on.....
Why would we ever want to erase our beautiful heartfelt prayers from God's thoughts for us. He loves watching over us, “the Lord watches over you...the Lord is your shade at your right hand.” Psalm 121:5
Our Lord is ready to shower us with gifts and graces. All we have to do is pray and ask. “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.' Matthew 7:7
The answer might not come immediately but in that waiting and praying, God's grace will surprise you. And you will know this scripture to be true. “The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.” Deuteronomy 31:8
Take the Lord's hand, give Him back your book of prayers and never stop praying....never! “Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
Know you are not alone and feel the Love and the strength of Our Lord.
