...if it really does any good to pray.
And on days like today, I stumble into the reality that God listens. And answers.
You who are praying for me, I am in awe. I am almost hesitant to accept the strength, the encouragement, the rays of sunlight, the uplifted mood as everything shifts from clouds to color and brightness.
The waiting isn't hard today. My heart isn't so heavy as my stomach feels, hanging off my front, bigger than ever. His good is falling down around me, and I'm heart-staring in unwarranted surprise.
I have no explanation beyond your prayers.
It's humbling for me to ask you to continue. But who can knock this? Especially realizing that He is listening to you. Answering your prayers. Caring for me. Showing His care for you in His provision for me.
I think I don't need to be so hesitant to offer to pray as I have been.
Thank you for praying for me. For your involvement in teaching this heart more about His heart.
Ya'll (lol - my ode to having moved South!!! - did I just SAY THAT???) are incredible.
"Praise the LORD! Oh, give thanks to the LORD, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever."
