Thank you, God

I’ve hit a bit of a rough patch over the last few of weeks. I’ve not felt that I should burden family and friends with my troubles outside of talking to a couple of them about the basics, but I have prayed about my issues a lot, and have thanked God that even in my darkest hours He never sees me as weak or as a failure. What a comfort that in our hours of need – or even when believers think they’ve got everything covered and that they don’t need Him – His presence remains constant.

There was a time in my life when I didn’t turn to God often, preferring instead to try and resolve things in ways that didn’t include relying on my faith; now, I can’t imagine not praying to Him about the good times and the bad. He is always there for both, and wants to hear about both.

Thank you, God.

    That neighbor’s still letting the dog poop in your yard, eh? 😉

    Seriously, ST, I’m sorry to read you’ve had a hard time of it lately. While I’m sure you’ll come through it fine, remember that you have friends willing to listen.

    Hang tough, kiddo. 🙂

    Thanks, Anthony. I’m ok – just having more downs than ups lately! Getting my hair done tomorrow, so that should help make me feel better 😉

    Hey Sister…the prayers of the righteous never go unanswered. Sometimes it’s Yes, sometimes it’s No and other times it Wait…so hang in there with the Lord nothing is impossible!!!

    Having my difficulties, too…a depressed husband can be a real drag….hehehe…at least I have been given the patience of Job to deal with him and a sprinkling of joy to still enjoy life!

    Wishing you joy!
