Lord, I thank You for this day! I ask that You would take everything in it and use it to mold and shape me into the person you would have me to be. Forgive me, Lord, when I have fallen short of walking in Your plan. Help me to reach higher – to reach for Your plan for me – and
not settle for mine.
Open my eyes, Lord, that I may see!
Open my ears, Lord, that I may hear! Open my heart, Lord, that I may love!! May it be so, Lord, in Jesus’ name!!
After church, I decided to get some food from a local restaurant to take home. The restaurant was overflowing with “after church diners”. It ended up being a loooong wait for my order!
But God used this time to use me in prayer for a precious woman undergoing chemo after cancer surgery. First, I prayed with her husband after he shared with me about the situation. Then later, he introduced me to her and I had the honor of praying with her when we were alone together (if you can be alone in the middle of a crowded restaurant)!
I have to say though…it felt like it was just me, her, and the Lord. Everything and everyone else simply fell away into the background…
Thank You, Lord, for using me today for my Sister and for Your glory! I’m so glad for the long wait!! I love You, Jehovah Rapha!! ❤️
I was waiting in line at the grocery store. The woman ahead of me was finished but was talking to the young girl checking her out. It was obvious to me that in spite of the difference in ages, they had a connection.
I couldn’t help but overhear how the woman was going for more of her chemo treatment in a few days. The cashier was asking her questions determining that she was being well taken care of.
Finally, the woman noticed I was waiting my turn and apologized for making me wait. I told her I was in no hurry….and then when I received a little nudge from the Lord…I asked if I could pray for her.
Her whole face lit up as she responded with a strong YES! I came closer, gently laid my hand on her shoulder and began to pray. I noticed the cashier with her head bowed as she joined us.
After I finished, the young cashier said, “Whew!! I feel heat!!
Oh Lord!! Thank you for opening the door to be able to pray for my Sister’s complete healing! Thank You for being able to speak blessing and love to the young cashier! Oh Lord!! Thank You for blessing ME!! You are an AWESOME GOD!!!
Pray for all people…and for all of those in authority! (1 Timothy 2:1). May God bless you, my friends, and may God bless America!! 🥰
All of our talking/ complaining/hoping doesn’t accomplish what God can do in and through us as we seek Him in prayer! HE should be our FIRST “go to” as we make this life journey. Are you ready to connect with Him? He’s ready!
My prayer for you and me on this day and every day after, dear friends!
