In the multitude of thoughts…
Because this is what my brain looks like this morning..
I almost didn’t post.
But I am praying God will corral a hodgepodge of thoughts and emotions and will somehow bring you a word of hope and encouragement today to press on.
This weekend I got to travel with Russ to see a facility that he worked with many others to bring about.
I got to sit in our car and look out over this place where trucks and trains and people go about the business of distribution of product every day.
And I cried and I thanked God and I felt that joy you feel when you have labored hard over something and it finally comes to completion.
Because all over this house…
tucked in journals and written on index cards..
day after day…
month after month…
the name of that city is written.
Just the name of a city.
But it represents prayers lifted for the process that was taking place, the people involved and the challenges they overcame.
I had no idea what I was really praying for; no vision of what this was going to look like.
I had no relationship with the people other than Russ.
I had no reason to pray except it all mattered to him and thus it mattered to me.
One of the greatest mysteries of God is that He invites us into His work through prayer.
who formed the mountains…
and can move them…
invites the likes of us to partner with Him…
in His great works…
I think of some other things that are inked onto new cards and journals.
Over and over they are written.
And like this answered prayer I got to see with my eyes this weekend…
I really don’t know the vision for which I am praying.
But I pray on.
I was encouraged in my faith this weekend to not grow weary…to not give up…to keep praying even when I don’t know how to pray.
And so I pass along the same to you.
“Here’s what I want you to do. Find a quiet, secluded place so you won’t be tempted to role-play before God. Just be there as simply and honestly as you can manage. The focus will shift from you to God, and you will begin to sense His grace.” Jesus Christ in Matthew 6:6 The Message
God bless you today to not grow weary…but to continue to partner with our amazing, wonder-working God even when you feel so very small <3
Even though maybe you didn’t want to write today it was very good lesson to be a part of. I enjoy God’s voice through you and I pray I don’t grow weary. I love my God With all that I am and that’s where I put my trust daily!
Bless you dear Sandra. He is so faithful and so worthy of our worship and yes, yes, yes…our trust!! Hugs <3
