Praise Day 317: Today I praise God for prayer and the ability to come to Him at all times.....for all reasons.....no matter what!
In this life here on earth, there will always be times of sadness, disappointment, hurt, people will let you down and you will let people down! There are so many different scenarios that take place every single day. There will also be days of joy, peace, accomplishment, and utter elation! The one constant we have in life is that if you are a child of God......you will always have him there to talk to! Prayer is our way of communicating with Him and if we allow it to be, it can be one of the most intimate, fulfilling experiences of our lives......and it is available 24/7. Now, here I have to admit that often.....I forget to go to Him, or even worse.....some days I don't want to! Maybe it is just me, maybe I am the only one who has gotten so angry and frustrated for lack of understanding that I could not find the words nor wanted to find words, but the words just flowed out anyway.......because even in frustration......HE is the love of my heart! Most often when I feel this way it is because I am afraid that He is going to tell me something I don't want to hear......or that I am going to have to change something I don't want to change! You know, I am so thankful that God loves me enough to talk to me and tell me what He wants me to know and how He expects me to respond. He loves me in the good times and He loves me in the bad times. It is funny that we can hear Him when we can't "hear" Him. He speaks through His Word and through circumstances......He speaks to us through a soft breeze or a violent wind.......He speaks to us through little FB messages and through wise counsel of godly men and women..........Oh how beautiful are His ways of speaking to us........and even sometimes, through us! Prayer is Gods gift to us to help us truly find Him, trust Him, and commune with Him. Prayer is not just for calling out to Him when we are in need, it is also for thanking Him and praising Him.......I am sooooooo thankful for prayer! I am soooooo thankful for a Heavenly Father who listens to me and loves me, even when what I have to say is fruitless and I am unlovable! I am thankful that I have access to Him in the blink of and eye.....I don't have to track Him down or search for Him, He is just there.....ALWAYS there!
I am a fun loving Honeygram, wife and mother who loves Jesus with my whole heart! If you have any questions.....just ask me and I will do what I can to answer them! May God Bless You All!
