My Heart's Prayer

Dear Father,

I have so much to be thankful for - but so rarely do I acknowledge Your blessings in my life.  Thank you for today. Thank you for salvation. Thank you for my faithful, devoted husband – my best friend, my confidant. Thank you for my family – for a mother who always answer the phone when I really need her. For a father whose prayers I feel from miles away. Most importanly, thank-you for forgiveness.

Please forgive me for my many failures. Forgive me for doubting You. Forgive me for doubting that You will work a miracle in my life. Forgive me for questioning this path. Help me to see with Your eyes – help me to understand with Your understanding. Silence the echoes of despair and uncertainty that resonate in my core. Forgive my selfishness and impatience. Forgive my controlling spirit. Forgive me for thinking of myself before the needs of others. Forgive me for being so much like me and so little like You.

I believe in Your word. I believe that you want to bless me. I believe that you will not give me more than I can take and that You are always here with me: loving me, comforting me, surrounding me with Your grace and mercy. How I long for the faith of a mustard seed and pray for understanding during this trial.

Thank you for loving me in spite of myself.

Amen to all of that!

I have a lil' somethin' somethin' for you on my blog!

Tamara Nicole said...

Ok 1) You totally deserve the award :-)

2) Hmmm . . . yes I'm so glad we're in the same boat with this dog/baby issue! I know we also aren't quite ready and want to strengthen our marriage as much as possible before babies. PLUS I'm not ready to give up my freedom quite yet. BUT I know my hubby will be an amazing daddy . . . in a few years lol.

Thanks for your response and have a FANTASTIC rest of your day love:-)

I think you've been in my boat too! Although my posts are upbeat as you mentioned the other day I've been going through a lot secretly!! I can't wait until it comes when I can finally share. My husband and I are going through some major changes that will drastically affect our lives. It's exciting, scary and overwhelming.

Thanks for posting this and reminding me that God is in control. I could really use it lately.

I doubt we're going through the same things right now...but everything you said is completely true for me too. I'm struggling to have faith the size of a mustard seed. I want it, I know I can have it, but it seems so far out of reach.
