While I was Praying...

Monday, January 21, 2013

this morning God showed me something so amazing. I could feel the weight of the world starting to press on my shoulder's as I lie in bed contemplating where to start. Instead I decided to pray. I thanked God for everyone and everything good in my life, (I wanted him to know I just wasn't coming for a handout!), then I began to talk to him about the weather, (What? I like sharing everything, lol) then gradually got to my requests. First I started with others, then a little for me.

What happened next was so astonishing I cried. I seen God as my father. I seen him smiling at me and wanting me to let go of all these "things" I had in my arms. I said to him, "Well, how can I? I don't even know what these "things" are, I mean I don't know why I feel so down today, or why I am worried. I need to know before I give them to you right?" I felt God's loving stare as to remind me, "He" already knows! I felt so liberated! I was like, "I don't have to know the reason why I feel the way I do, I can just hand you all this junk?" He said, "Yup" with a smile so big it lit up the heavens.

Running towards God now, I hurriedly gave him "ALL my things" (they looked like Charlie Brown's teacher talking) and immediately began doing a series of back flips in the spirit. Oh, I guess I should also mention in this vision, I was a young child full of agility :) :) :)

I wept and wept when I realized a fresh, once more, how much God truly cares for me. I just laid in bed a minute more marveling at his goodness and grace. I then ended my prayer asking the Lord to fill me to overflow with his love so that I could share what he so freely gave me. I love God so much, and I tell ya, I will forever be thankful for not only his "GREAT EXCHANGE" Jesus Christ, but his daily glimpses into eternity. The nourishment I receive for my soul is more than I could ever describe in a mere paragraph or two, yet I am always so anxious to try! Thank you Jesus for delivering me from the bondage of reasoning and having to know it all. I love you because YOU first loved me!

Please be blessed today, knowing God loves you, and that He has a tremendous plan for your life!

    Thank you for sharing that. So often this is the moment when we REALIZE our needs and hopes are NOT insurmountable. They are the moments when God has always worked his greatest wonders and miracles - moments when we are at our lowest point and can't face going any lower - it is then He lifts us UP.

    Thank you, this brought tears to my eyes and a smile to my face.
