Well so I suppose everything is getting better. Not sure how to feel yet again; There are many problems. There are also many solutions. Not completely sure what the deal is right now. I just know there are a lot of attacks on my family from a lot of different directions. I also know that my God is bigger then anything that is being thrown at us right now. I am also very aware that nothing is a surprise to God. I know that sitting down and spilling my heart out to God is helpful. Crying alone in a room, praying my heart out. I know he hears prayers and And “we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.” (Romans 8:28 NKJV)
I realize it is hard to remember and it is a hard thing to think about. Especially when things are not going very well. I encourage you to remember to pray about all things. Whether you are full of Joy or Full of sorrow. Give It to God. I know he can will make a difference in our lives. We just have to ask, then actually listen for a response. He knows what we need to hear, he knows what we need to do, and knows what needs to be done. I always have had a hard time about these type of things. I used to think I could just ask God for something and he would either do it or not. There was not a deeper understanding of how the chain,”of command” really works. I did not realize it was about a relationship and communication. “OUR FATHER WHO ART IN HEAVEN” Check it out, if we treat it like a relationship. Telling him things, have a conversation, just stopping to say hi and a quick thank you, THAT Changes lives. I know from experience. Things will NOT get better over night. But if we keep praying, keep having conversations, and keep listening. We are likely to finally hear/see results.
I have also learned it is easier to hear answers and understand HIM if we are looking into His word to see what it says. Not taking offense to it all but to study and learn things. To discover the unknown. It is possible to change your life. You will never be able to change someone else, or how they will respond or react. You are only able to work on how you respond, how YOU handle situations. How you take on life. Not many people in your life are going to be easy to deal with. Not most people will understand when you say you are just going to let God handle the situation. But as long as you are truly praying about it. A lot WILL happen. We just do not always get to be there to see it. But working on you, working on how you handle life; And leading your life in prayer, is definitely THE step forward to take.
Unique Advice For Today: This Prayer Wednesday, I encourage you to go to a quiet place to be “alone” and pour your heart out to the Lord. Tell him how you feel, tell him what you wish could change around you, even tell him why. Lay it all down. THEN, sit and actually listen. Actually feel His presence. His Holy Spirit guiding your heart in the direction it should go. Then you will have rest. (The Word says; “Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am Gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30 NKJV)
His Word stands true. The TRUTH will always be the Truth. No matter anything. We serve a God who never changes and who is always there. Whether we think so or not.

“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:6-7 NKJV
Do not be afraid to message or comment a prayer request that is on your heart. Like I have said before it can be unspoken and stay private. But there is definitely power in numbers. Like I have said before.
So I do not know everything but I can tell you what I do know. Not everything will be easy. Especially if you are in pursuit of the truth. Even then it will be harder then ever expected. Because we will have trials. You know that other verse I love to quote all the time. You all mostly know it. 🙂
Love you all. Keep on having a blessed week. Come back soon!
