Over the past couple of weeks, our family has faced many difficult challenges...health scares, lingering illnesses, relationship struggles, etc.
On April 21st, I received 5 different text/messages/phone calls in a matter of minutes from various family members.
It has not been easy but God is faithful!
On Monday morning, I awoke at 3am. This morning, it was at 12:58 am...both mornings, I lifted each of my prayer requests up to the Father and then got up to start my day.
While praying this morning, I realized that sometimes, there just aren't any words left. I've said them all...I have nothing left...I am empty.
It is during these times that I find myself praying and then closing with the words "Thy Will be Done."
This morning...after praying and closing with..."Thy will be done" I found myself meditating on those 4 little words.
"Thy will be done"
What is God's will? What is God's desire?
If I'm asking for God's will to be done...then why pray for the desires of my heart?
Because when we pray for God's will to be done, we are actually praying and asking that things come to align with His will.
So this morning, my prayer is not for God to "FIX" all things (illnesses...yes!) but that all "THINGS" align with God's will.
Pick up God's word and search for His will...Pray those scriptures over those you love! Pray that their situation will come into alignment with His will!
If you have a few minutes this morning, will you please pray these two scriptures and lift those on my prayer list up to the Father?
Jeremiah 10:17 “But I will restore you to health and heal your wounds,’ declares the Lord.”
Ephesians 5:21-33 Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ. Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands as you do to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior. Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything. Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word, and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless. In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. After all, no one ever hated their own body, but they feed and care for their body, just as Christ does the church— for we are members of his body. “For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.” This is a profound mystery—but I am talking about Christ and the church. However, each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband.
