Okay, this is really a reminder to me, but maybe someone out there is experiencing a similar bit of human weakness just now, so I’m sharing this with you and sending along with these words a caring hug. For you see, the last day or two has found me feeling a bit off, discouraged, sad. Nothing in my life has dramatically changed, mind you. Is that why I feel this way? It is hormones? Is it the weather? Who knows if these things are part of it or not, but as I sat and had some quiet time just now, it came to me that I’ve not had much “time” for that in the last couple of days . . . so I prayed for the Holy Spirit to fill me and guard and guide me and I found myself reading these words from the Gospel of Luke 18: 1 where I was reminded “I always pray. I don’t faint, quit, or give up.” Wow. So, did I mention what we all know but somehow need to be reminded of? He always answers prayer and that quote was proof of it! I asked and He answered IMMEDIATELY. Praise the name of the Lord! As I reflected on this, I realized that the tightness I’d felt off and on for a day or two was suddenly a bit less and then I found these words from John 16:24 “I ask and receive and my joy is made full.” Thank you, Lord.
