How often when we pray, do we ask God “Give me what YOU WANT ME TO HAVE,” “Give me what you KNOW I NEED.”
I was laying in bed this morning praying and I started out asking like this… “Lord, I need______” “Please give me_______. “Help me with ______.”
The Lord showed me a better way to pray “Lord give me what you KNOW I NEED, what YOU have and want for me. “THANK YOU FOR MEETING ALL MY NEEDS AND CHANGING ALL OF MY WANTS TO WHAT YOU WANT FOR ME.” Thank you for making me the wife you want me to be for my husband, the mother you want me to be for my children, the nana you want me to be for my grandchildren, the friend you want me to be, the neighbor you want me to be….
Then THANK HIM for just being HIM!
How often do we forget what a LOVING GOD WE HAVE? A Heavenly Father that is 1,000 more than the very best earthly father. Our personal best friend, we can share our darkest moments with and He still LOVES us and FORGIVES us!
Today my prayer is for everyone in this group and their families to get to KNOW GOD deeper. Get to KNOW Him in your every day life. Talk to HIm throughout your day, even if it’s just to say “Lord show me you are REAL, show yourself to me, show me you are ALWAYS RIGHT THERE BESIDE ME.”
