Even when we don’t know how.


Sometimes life has situations that just seem too difficult to deal with. Many times we hide from the reality of what we need to face, and place our focus intently on anything else other than what really needs dealt with. We become overwhelmed even thinking about how to handle something…so overwhelmed that we don’t even feel like we can pray. God knows you, and He knows what you are going through. He understands this lost feeling you have. He doesn’t expect for you to know what to say…how to pray…or how to feel. He only asks that you turn to Him for help. God does not create the situations that we face…He creates face-able situations…when we rely completely and totally on His power and love to turn things around. We must trust God…even when we don’t know how. Simply ask for His help, and surrender it to Him. Then continue resting in God’s presence…and soon you will feel Him there.

The Lord is good, a refuge in times of trouble. He cares for those who trust in Him. NAHUM 1:7

For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through endurance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope. ROMANS 15:4

God is with us.

    1. Oh Vicki. My heart aches for you. This journey is a very difficult one…and I can imagine how you feel. My friend, you are a strong warrior. God is with you and He knows your needs. I will be praying in agreement with you…and we will fight this battle together. May you find comfort in the arms of Jesus, and may He take care of these children for you…by taking care of you. I am going to add you to our church prayer list if that is ok with you? Let me know. God bless you sister.
