Pray Specifically My Love💗

When I was 20 years old I started a journal with all my prayers to God. In a couple of entries I prayed specifically for the husband I wanted. Whoever he was, wherever he was at, I had no idea but I was very specific. Right down to the number of children, names, character traits, and so on. I can look back at those prayers now, the ones I wrote to the Lord when I was 20 years old and use them almost like a check list for my husband, our children, and the life I have now. The Bible tells us:

John 14:12-13 “Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go to the Father. 13 “And whatever you ask in My name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.

John 15:7 “If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it shall be done for you.

It took 7 years of me messing things up by taking life into my own hands and not trusting God. Oh I believed, I just didn’t fully trust it to be done without my own intervention. I was impatient. Many heartaches later when God did send my blessing I almost missed it. I was cold and calloused, shut off to something sweet. God’s grace worked through a few friends who told me to snap out of it.

The man in front of me was special. And my heart changed back. He was not perfect but neither was I. Just by saying yes Lord, I opened the door to the rest of my life walking in the very path I know without a doubt God wanted to bless me.

Those old tattered, tearfilled pages are the written record of God’s forfilled plan in my life. It shows me He is real, actively working, and totally by my side as long as I seek Him and His will in my life.

If I could speak to the younger me I would say, sit back and wait. Enjoy your family now, go spend time with your mom and dad, and stop chasing rabbits. God has everything worked out in His time and sister it is more than you can even HOPE for. Trust me on this. I have my written record to remind me.

I encourage you to journal your prayers to the Lord and ask without abandon. Pray specifically my love.

I believe in the God of the Bible and that Jesus is His Son who died on the cross at Calvary for the sins of the world. This free gift is for you and for me, if we accept that fact by faith and strive daily to follow His Living Word that is the same today, yesterday, and forever. Also, for the record, I love my boyfriend whom I have been married to for going on 18 years. We have two boys that are both in high school, which is taught at home by yours truly. Cats, dogs, chickens, ducks, goats, turkeys, squirrels, chipmunks, peacocks, song birds, coyotes, raccoons, opossums, all call our yard home and I have a story about all of them. I am originally from Kentucky, with deep roots in Eastern Kentucky's Appalachian Mountains. I grew up in a working class suburb of Lexington, Kentucky. I am married to a quiet feller from Birmingham, Alabama. We met in Tampa, FL, married, had two kids and moved to California. From there we landed in Alabama for a few years and then by the providence of God we moved to our little piece of heaven in Georgia where we live in a white house, on a little hill, in the rocky foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. I have some things I think I might want to write that maybe someone might want to read... mostly stories and experiences of my own and a few I can relay from second hand knowledge but none with great confidence, pride, or true story telling ability, just overthought ramblings that I quickly need to capture before I forget.
