Trust in Him

"Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time: Casting all your care upon Him; for He cares for you." (I Peter 5:6-7)

"Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God." (Philippians 4:6)

Dear God,

I give you my prayer request. You know the situation, you know the story, and only you can solve it. This rock is giant and I cannot lift it by myself; the problem is far too great for me alone. I pray for your showers of mercy. Thank you.

I write this today to honor the God who made the blind to see, the lame to walk and healed the lepers. "Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven." Thank you for Your hope that shines in the darkness.

With praises, love and thanksgiving,

Esther

"Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,' says the LORD Almighty." (Zechariah 4:6)

Hi Esther--thanks for the comment on my blog. Good to hear from you!

Your post reminded me of something St. Teresa of Avila said: You pay God a compliment by asking great things of Him.

Hi Esther, it was so nice to hear from you again - thanks for your comments.

Actually, I haven't eaten rhubarb in many years...although I recall I loved it as a child! We don't see it much around here for some reason; probably why I've never bought any, so I don't recall that shortage you mentioned.

Hi, Elizabeth: That's an awesome quote from St. Teresa! What a wonderful thought at a time like this; thank you.

Hi, Lee Anne: Thank you for your prayers and friendship!

Hi, Sara: I think I may have created that rhubarb shortage. But the fig jam sure was good! ;)
