Prayer Life

I am sitting wondering what to post. All I can think of is to talk about the goodness of God and how prayer has changed my life. As a Christian, prayer is a powerful weapon. Whenever and wherever we can, we should pray. I have learned to not just pray in times of trouble, but to pray as often as I can. By praying daily, I am able to combat a lot of things in my life that could happen, but didn’t because of prayer. God protects us from things we don’t even see and probably will not ever know about. As a parent, I am teaching my child to do the same.

Prayer is my time to connect with God and just soak in his word. It’s a time to listen for his voice and allow him to guide my steps daily. Luke 22:42, teaches us “Not my Will but thy Will be done.” When I say those words on a daily basis, I am allowing God to take over my life. I believe he has and always will. His ways are always better than ours.

I have seen Prayer work in my life for my family, health, and finances. No matter the circumstance, God has always come through for me. I know in my heart he always will. I encourage you today to have a Prayer Life and hold steadfast to his promises.

Teaching

Today I was privileged enough to be able to teach a Bible Study. This was not my first time, but my first with people I don’t know very well. I have taught before family and friends. It was quite an experience to teach in front of people you do know as much.  I had an enlightening encounter. I was very nervous of course, but as Joyce Meyer would say, ‘Do it Afraid’ and I did. I prayed the previous day that God would allow me to get out everything that needs to be said. I feel like I did just that. I had a few more things I wanted to mention, but because of nerves, I stopped. I felt as if God had allowed me to get out what was necessary. My small group were very supportive and enjoyed my teaching. I feel so blessed and so happy to have been able to touch someone with the word of God. I had not had that feeling before, but God has blessed us with so much, we should share and give people hope. If he can do it for us, he can do it for them as well. I now look forward to teaching, which I will be doing in my own home with my husband starting next month. I pray that we touch everyone that comes through our door and God blesses them in abundance.
