verse and prayers for Wednesday August 7

KRISTINEFREDRIKA - 10:25AM UTC, Aug 7th 2013


*Good morning sisters

Wednesday again…how did that happen?
Steph…you're so right…I remember Joyce saying that conferences and her messages etc do not count for time spent with God…we are so like that…attend church, or listen to a conference and we feel that we have done our 'spiritual duty…' Thank God the police moved quickly..this is a dangerous world!

Annette…you don't need to be a fighter…just hide behind your Father :) . I admire people who realize their weakness…I am on the other spectrum…I often rely on my own strength until I'm too far gone and have to be really corrected by God. I'm the type that has to be reminded that I can't go it alone :) Thank God for his patience with me…I once lost our new church's keys …in the moment I totally knew it was God correcting me for my pride. A visiting pastor prayed with me that I would find it and I told him that I knew we wouldn't because I recognized it right away as a correction.

Erika: so glad to see you on Facebook. Thank you for your prayers for Mimi. My sis and I aren't really that close. She holds everything in and only tells me things usually after the fact. She told me yesterday that Mimi has been getting drunk or high once a week…she went to rehab last year and spent 6 months there. I'm so sad for her. She also has a personality disorder…she feels better, goes off her meds, and then spirals down. My sis came to prayer on Friday night for the first time in a long time. She could barely get the words out...

14 For this reason I fall on my knees before the Father, 15 from whom every family in heaven and on earth receives its true name. 16 I ask God from the wealth of his glory to give you power through his Spirit to be strong in your inner selves, 17 and I pray that Christ will make his home in your hearts through faith. I pray that you may have your roots and foundation in love, 18 so that you, together with all God's people, may have the power to understand how broad and long, how high and deep, is Christ's love. 19 Yes, may you come to know his love - although it can never be fully known - and so be completely filled with the very nature of God. 20 To him who by means of his power working in us is able to do so much more than we can ever ask for, or even think of: 21to God be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus for all time, forever and ever! Amen.

Father, thank you that you hold all our cares in Your hands…thank you that you measure our difficulties and do whatever it takes to keep us close…Lord I ask your blessings on our children. Father you see see she is on the brink of starting a relationship. Please bless this boy and let him come to you…please let Sammie remember the promise she made to you…
Father, take care of Mimi…lead her back to you and strengthen Pam and Louis that they may not fall away from you .
Lord, bless Steph, Erika and Annette…Lord how wonderful it is to have sisters with whom to share…thank You!


Victory = series of right choices....

Nothing tastes as good as Peace feels!

God bless you and yours!

Good Afternoon,

I got on the scales this morning and it finally scared me back on the wagon. At least I have stayed with the program today. Walked over lunch for 35 minutes and I have my strength training class tonight.

Last night went well. I ended up getting a lot of wood cut up. Kept picturing the little ant as I went. By the time I finished working yesterday I could tell that I made a dent in the mess. It's supposed to storm this afternoon if it doesn't I will be out there again tonight. Otherwise I have expense reports to work on.

Today I am following some more advise from Joyce....I am declaring things out loud good things instead of whining about what is today.

Annette, praying for DH - Kris, praying for your niece and praying for all of us ladies strength.

2 Corinthians 12:9
New Living Translation (NLT)
9 Each time he said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.” So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me.

Have a blessed day!

Good morning:)!

Steph--I have been a little tired, I completely forgot o mention a big amen, I am so glad that the police were so efficient, that is definitely an answer to prayer:) and a godsend.

Erika, I hope that you are doing very well:)

Kris--brink of first relationship--how exciting and nerve wracking, definitely something to pray about daily:).

Hmm, it is hard for me to explain what I mean by fighter, it might be different than you may be perceiving for me to mean....I am thinking of Daniel. But, i love you mentioning God fighting for us, I looked up fighting in my chain reference, and all over the place Verses point to God wanting to do the fighting for us:)........I have way of processing information that can really drain me......i tend to respond to others with empathy followed by understanding the other person...I absorb a lot from others, which leaves me weak and consumed, not strong in faith.

I am praying that my hubby's trip goes well. Instead of flying out last night (because it was our daughter's birthday) he flew out at 5:30am.....he had to get a rental car after getting off an 8am landing, and do his best to make it to a 9am meeting. Around midnight last night a transformer blew and our power went out, it was pretty loud and scared the kids.....I knew because my cpap stopped, i got up and set my phone alarm...the power was out or quite awhile....very disruptive sleep for very tired parents. The ac never turned back on and it was pretty warm yesterday.....It felt like the warmth of a 74 degree home woke me up ths morning. My hubby did amazing and woke up at 3:30am.....I am not sure if he slept a wink.....(FYI, hubby just called, he made it to the meeting on time, amen:), traffic can be pretty bad in Phoenix.)

Please pray for my hubby, he and his brothers had to make the decision to sell his mom's home, it has been empty for too long. They have kept their mom from the final stages of this because she has been moving everything into his brother's home with every visit, and it just isn't the decision she wants, and she is very forgetful, so it can open a whole new can of worms whenever brought up, but she can't live on her own anymore. Anyways, the house is almost empty, after my hubby gets back on Thursday night, we will head over to the hose for one last visit on Friday morning....the new family may very likely be starting to move in that day, at least stuff into the garage. This whole process has moved very quickly...the house was never even put on the market before it was sold. Anyways, this is the home my hubby grew up in, it hasn't been very long since his dad passed, and I am praying for proper closure and peace through this transition, hopefully we will think of taking funny pictures or something, but this is just very hard for him.....not sure if we will end up with everything left at the house on Friday, lol:). I am praying that I will know how to support him.

God bless each of you today:),
