Friends, I wanted to take a few moments and share how I can be prayed for.
My Mental Health (and the grieving process). It is no secret that I have struggled fiercely as of lately. When my Grandpa passed away, it was much like a dam breaking. I continue to have nightmares of different scenarios, both related to PTSD and the grieving process I am walking through.
The Blog and Facebook Ministry. Right now, I have a few ideas concerning the new year. More than anything, I need to allow the Lord God to guide my heart, hands, and feet for the right studies to lead and to have the technology to spread the Gospel.
The Health of My Family. My mom and I both have chronic illness. Even though we both need help, we are walking through a season of needing to be ministered to. I want Christ to be glorified as we are ministered to and minister to each other and our family as a whole.
My Personal Quiet Time. Right now, I lack a regular rhythm for my “JAM” (Jesus and Me) sessions. Every so often, I have to adjust my quiet time to accommodate my season of life. We all go through this. My quiet time is not expected to look the same, as it did when I was in college.
I just have to find out how I can meet Jesus through His Word and prayer each day (or most days). My time doesn’t have to include a sit down hour long session.
God knows my struggles and He understands. Our God is soo good and He sees our hearts.
One thing to remember is – He looks at our hearts, not appearances. We can fool others, but not our Risen Lord. So draw near honestly and celebrate the time you do vulnerably come near to meet with our Wonderful Savior and Mighty King!
There is power in sharing our needs with others and allowing them to pray on our behalf. That’s why I wanted to share tonight. So, how can I pray for you?
1 Samuel 16:7
“But the Lord said to Samuel, “Don’t judge by his appearance or height, for I have rejected him. The Lord doesn’t see things the way you see them. People judge by outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.””
