Good morning, Dear Friends and Prayer Partners! This is the day that the Lord has made and we will rejoice and be glad in it! Happy first day of summer! Ha. As is we haven't been having summer weather for a good while! Well, now it's official. Ho, hum. another very warm day in paradise!
We had a fun meeting last night with our Faith Group, with eating, fellowship and ending with prayers. It's nice to have monthly meetings and see and hear what is going on in others lives. Some difficulties, some joys, and some glimpses of God working in our lives to prepare us for eternity.
I went shopping at Publix yesterday to get some groceries I needed and took some coupons which the cashiers always ask me for, unlike some other stores. I couldn't find a particular brand of cracker and told the cashier when she asked, and she sent one of the stock men to get it for me. Sometimes I look and look and just can't see...Also, I saw four or five soldiers come in and met one as I was leaving. He was picking up a basket because his hands were full, so I smiled at him and thanked him for what he was doing. He was very young and he thanked me and we went our separate ways. I have often wanted to do that, but that time God prompted me to do it. I am not usually that bold, but I felt good afterward.
Then I went to the Park, and almost stopped for a squirrely squirrel that dashed in front of me. They get so bold in their racing across the road! There were quite a few people out, considering the heat and one young woman was skating pretty fast on her inline skates. More power to her! I only saw one anhinga, and no other animals or birds. But God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
What do we do when we don't know what to do?
Proverbs 3:5-7 trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will direct your paths. Don't be impressed with your own wisdom. Instead fear the Lord and turn your back on evil.
Trust the Lord to direct your steps, even when the way is confusing. God will guide you.
If you need wisdom--if you want to know what God wants you to do--ask him, be sure that you really expect him to answer, for a doubtful mind is as unsettled as a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind. People like that should not expect to receive anything from the Lord. They can't make up their minds. They waver back and forth in everything they do.
Some people fear that they are bothering God with their problems. Nothing could be further from the truth. God is looking for ways to help us because he loves us. Our commitment to him releases his resources for us.
When we are overwhelmed, confused, or uncertain, we should not hesitate to pray. In fact, these are the best times to pray because the Holy Spirit can then help us the most. We describe our situation and trust God to provide the solution.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
