When we began to hear how people were drawn closer to the Lord … all we were going through—the suffering, the nearness of death, the separation—all of it was worth it, and I am so very grateful and thankful for it.
Praying with a Thankful Heart is a book on prayer, but much more than that, it is a real-life, scripture-based devotional on living in the real world and the kingdom of God at the same time.
Life always comes out of death.
What I saw last December was “Our Father who is in Heaven” conveys the same message as “He is, and He is a rewarder.”
This has been a good—hard—year. Through an extended battle with Covid and it’s side effects, it’s been a year to learn much, grow spiritually, become more aware of His presence, and see the power of prayer.
A second childhood, or a second chance at life?
There are a lot of things from this year that I never want to repeat, but I thank You for Your faithfulness through it all.
Why am I still here? Does prayer help those who are ill or injured? How important is the will to live?
If this long, miserable process has resulted in others being helped, encouraged, strengthened in their faith, and praying like they haven’t before, then it has been worth it.
All in all, now is the season for me to focus on the Father, and be thankful and at peace with what I can or can’t do physically.
