God Answers Prayer!

In our discouragement over unanswered prayer, the Lord reminds us, “Don’t quit!  Keep praying, keep Believing, keep persevering and keep coming before me with your needs.  I hear you and I care.  I will answer at the proper time … if you don’t quit.”


When it comes to the spiritual discipline called prayer, we are routinely confronted with the temptation to throw in the towel and quit.  Much of the time, the answers to our prayers are seemingly slow in coming.  We can start out so gung-ho over a need or a dream or a desire only to lose steam as nothing visibly changes.  The devil likes to show up in those moments and whisper in our ear, “You are wasting your time, your fool.  God is not going to answer your prayer.  He either doesn’t care about your need, or He is unable to help you.  Regardless, you ought to cut your losses, get off your knees, and stop believing in the pipe dream that prayer changes things.  It doesn’t.”  Have you ever heard those thoughts swirl through your mind?  I think we all have.    
You see, the Lord loves persistence; He loves it when we dig in and choose to trust Him, no matter what the circumstances say.  He loves it when we refuse to throw in the towel on the prayer need that He put in our heart.  When we pray according to His will, we can have great confidence that He will answer us when the time is right  (read 1 John 5:14-15). 

Have you thrown in the towel on prayer?  Have you given up on that dream, that need, that desire God placed within you?  Pick up the towel, and get back on your knees.  If your prayer is a little off center, ask God to refine it so that is in complete accordance with His will. 
Have a wonderful day in His presence.

Jesus is a safe harbor

I am a follower of Jesus. I am a grateful delivered woman who was once an addict, but now God has restored me and renewed me. I have been redeemed and remade by our Creator through salvation of His Son, Jesus Christ! I just want to share what God has done in my life that you may have the opportunity to experience the same joy He gave me. I give God all the glory for everything in my life for I couldn't accomplish anything apart from Him. If ye shall know the truth, the truth shall set you free, John 8:32. He puts people in my life that help me and gives me the opportunity to help another. I am never surprised by his love and blessings. God has placed a confidence and love in myself that I have never had before… so "Thank you God".. for the many True Blue Christians you have put in my life and for all the blessings you bestow on me daily. I have not come this far without lots of prayers and the help and love of my true friends and family and I thank you God for those special people in my life. You are 100% my Savior! I will forever have your name on my lips. I realize now with lots of prayer and reading of the Word… that all the answers were here for me and I never asked the questions. Although I still struggle daily with other life’s daily cards that are dealt, I have an attitude now of “NO MATTER WHAT “– I will praise You, Lord~~~through my storms and my triumphs! I have much more to share and would love to answer any questions anyone may have for through all my trials what has come to be is that I want to help others to see what I didn’t see and hopefully prevent the same hurts, guilt, shame and woes that I had to deal with and give them the best gift of all… JESUS! I believe it's important that we know who we are in God ... We are a one of a kind and God has made us like no other for a purpose- His purpose. Yes, bad things happen and yes, we make poor choices, but we don't have to continue to make them. God's mercies are new each day. Once we realize, know and most importantly believe who we are in Christ, that we are a child of God, we are not an accident, and whatever the circumstances before us each day no matter what they are... God gives us the choice and the power of Him to choose right and live right. We no longer have to live in the past, but in the present and look with expectation to the future with God by our side guiding us and directing our steps. He is our strength and our hope needs to reside in Him. Let his power and love work in your life today and see that life does not have to be the way you are living now. He wants to help you, but you have to let him. He can't make us come to him, he is not lost - WE ARE! Please share this blog with others to encourage them for the glory of God!
