And Then Here Am I

Sometimes when I get down to pray the thought of Israel enters my mind. Strange for an American mom of six, who is on her bathroom floor praying about the little insignificant things in life to think about. Nevertheless, it pops in my mind. I think about those who I know are crying out to God almighty about some pretty serious matters, and then here am I. It is enough of a sobering thought to stop me dead in my tracks if I let it, but then I hear a still small voice that says it's okay.....keep praying. Yes, I interject a quick prayer for those who are suffering over there, but then back to keeping my boys safe, and helping me with my indecisions and all the mini problems of my life. I remind myself that God is bigger than my imagination. He is capable of taking care of each one of us, no matter what our circumstances are. I can't afford to give the Lord a, supposed,break; the only one who will suffer in His absence is me. If I allow my thoughts to decieve me in to believing that now isn't a good time to talk to the Lord because He has more important matters to tend to, then my relationship will weaken and eventually I could fall away. Nope, I must believe (and I do) that God can, will, and wants to squeeze me in. After all, He is the master of this universe. That I have this amazing opportunity to talk to Him from the floor of any room of my house is humbling and boy am I glad that He is there for all of us........

Keep strengthening your relationship with Him! I can totally imagine you saying that about God squeezing you in, with these little body movements and a voice to match! Makes me laugh. Of course, you could be saying it in a different way... but that is how I am imagining it! I hope we get to see you again. And as you already know, God cares about you and your boys just as much as any other person in this world.

It is so good to have you back. My kids aren't teenagers yet but I hear it is a lot more busy and stressful. I know God wants us to ask him for guidance and strength.

So Good to hear from you! It's so easy to want to hunker down into our own little world when we are being tried ( I know.. I've done it plenty) But the comfort I've received from sharing my heart with someone is above measure. What a blessing the family of God is, in the dry desert and in the rain of plenty. You've been in my thoughts sweet Sister...
