I was praying with a few women that I didn’t know yesterday and as we prayed, I had this thought…
As we pray we are immersed into His endless ocean of mercy and grace, and our roots of faith are nourished and they grow. When we pray together we are immersed into His endless ocean of mercy and grace together, and our roots of faith are nourished and as they grow they connect and become intertwined making us true sisters and brothers in faith, ever expanding our hidden, yet very real support system.
Let us live like the trees, always expanding our hidden connections with each other by growing our roots of faith in humble prayer together guided by His Will.
Again, truly I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything they ask for, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.
A friend of mine was talking to me today about a couple that she knows. She was telling me how their relationship didn’t seem fair and how one person in the couple appeared to do 90% of the work.
I have been thinking about it some more and obviously I don’t know their whole story, but from the outside it appears that the beauty of their relationship lies in the fact that the two involved are not counting.
I think once you stop counting, the percentages can’t be calculated and they don’t matter anyway. What matters is the teamwork, knowing you have a teammate who has your back and wants to support you and love you.
Jesus please help us to stop counting, work together, and remember that we all have unique gifts to contribute which can’t be quantified anyway!
Unlike Atlas, Mr. Barack Obama did not shrug!
Regardless of the growing weight of our country on his shoulders, regardless of our finger pointing, blaming, and judging without ever walking in his shoes, he ran again and he won!
Let’s unify, let’s remove our Republican or Democratic cloaks and remember that we are all Americans and this is our country. Let’s try to take some of the weight off of his shoulders by coming together, because even Atlas eventually shrugged.
Let us not set ourselves up for failure, but instead support our president in prayer.
- Let us pray that he finds the right path, the path that is pleasing to God.
- Let us pray that someday when Mr. Barack Obama is standing before Our Creator, he will be able to look God in the face as God gently smiles at him and says, “Well done my son!”.
Please pray with me my sweet friends, it is always so much more powerful when we join together and when we pray for others.
I am sending my love to all of you and always praying for Our Best Life!
