“A Time to Pray…”

I prayed real hard to the Lord that day, “If you can use anything Lord, you can use me,” (just thought I’d mention that song here). Devil, I command you in the name of Jesus, release your hold on my blessings. I bind up you and all your imps from stopping men from giving to me. I regret not having the customers that the business needs to thrive. I will not accept second best in my life and my children will not lack for any good thing. Lord as I continue to do your will and wait on your voice, I am accused of having too much time on my hands. Father, strengthen me when I feel like I don’t want to do something. I need help to overcome my sense of not knowing my purpose here on this earth. I don’t feel like I’m doing things according to your plan, yet I don’t know what else to do. Lord, strengthen me in these hours. The telephone is bothersome, and there is no joy in picking up the mail due to the bill collectors, yet we need these forms of communication, so please help us to keep everything operational.”

I wanted to schedule a ‘pity party’. I have the spot picked out. The decorations, cake, and time has been reserved. Lord, You won’t allow me to send out any invitations. You send me packages of distractions to get me away from my focus on me. Neither my husband nor I can find another job that would pay the overhead costs. It would be like chasing the wind, senseless and useless. It’s also becoming a strain on my relationship with my spouse. I have to continually replace doubt with Phil. 4:8-9: Finally, brethren whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. Those things, which ye have both learned and received, and heard, and seen in me, do and the God of peace shall be with you.

“I can’t blame anyone but myself. If I heard you wrong Lord, and it’s my fault, I will continue to look to the hills (Psalm 121:1-8 [please read]). Father, I pray for the peace which passeth all understanding to keep my heart and mind in Jesus name (Phil. 4:7). Let it be well with my soul Lord.

Lord, it’s so hard to sit around and just work on cross-stitch when I am so used to being active in all that I do...
