I sang this song in church today and it just spoke to me in a new way. I have heard it and even sang it but today was different. I actually pictured myself running to Jesus and Him waiting for me with open arms. I need Jesus so desperately that I do find myself running to Him during my regular day. I want you to listen to the lyrics of this special song and make it your own. Do you ever run to the Savior?
This morning God prompted Brian to awaken and us both pray for a special friend who is in Duke right now with heart issues. We didn't know why or what was happening but we prayed with urgency for this friend. Later today I found out from his wife that during that time he was very upset and crying and not any better with his heart. How awesome that God loved our friend so much that He wanted us to pray comfort and angels all around him! After lunch I received another text and now his heart rate is in regular rhythm! Praise the LORD! Share with us when you have had a prompting of the Lord to pray for someone and you did!
Today I have the story of Peter going out to Jesus on the water on my heart really heavy. When I look at this picture I just see myself in Peter's spot. Oh, my, how I have felt that I was sinking in all that was around me and I was crying out for the Lord to save me and take my hand. What I love is that Jesus is not worried or fearful at all. He is secure and at peace as he holds Peter. He also holds me and you! We really can rise above the storm and stand with Jesus but the key is keeping our eyes on HIM! Share what this picture says to you!
Fear in the middle of the night is different from any other time fear comes. For some reason, during the night it just seems worse. I guess we feel surrounded by the darkness figuratively and literally! Last night Brian had a nightmare and woke me up in the middle of the night. He never woke up but I sure did! I have been awaken in the night with Brian having heart problems many times and so when I wake like that I feel those same fearful feelings for a few moments until I realize everything is fine. I just waited in the bed to feel sleepy again and just prayed for several things that have been on my spiritual heart. I thought about how blessed I was that my nights are filled with sleep now instead of fear and pain as they once used to be. If you are having tough nights right now, I want you to know that I understand on several levels and that I am so sorry. My heart breaks for you. I would never want anyone to feel like that. I am praying for you if you are. Please share how God has helped you in the night...
