"The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters. He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name's sake."
“ Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”
I know so many of you are heavy laden with sick loved ones, sickness yourself, snow that seems to never end, home repair issues, depression and anxieties... I love you all and am trying to pray for you all. I was thinking of a way of praying for each of you. I was thinking that I could pray for each person after I leave a comment on someone's blog. Whether they share a need or not, we certainly can all use the prayer. I need to make this a habit. I put looking at homes and reading blogs first, and promise to pray, and then get busy with my day. I am sorry that I have not been consistent with this. I am sorry I have not been consistently visiting your blogs. You have all been so kind to me with your friendships and visiting me. I will try to do better.
I am going to try to really make this habit, and would love others to help keep me accountable to do this. Maybe some of you would like to join this? Maybe some of you have habits you do to keep on top of prayer.
My students and I were talking about "prayer closets". They asked me if I had one. I am sorry to say that my "prayer closet", which was our tiny spare room, has become our stash for our stuff when company comes. So I sit on the couch. Then hubby comes out and turns the news on in the morning. I think my stress has been due to this lack of rest that comes from reading God's Word and praying each morning.
Could you pray for me to clean out that room, make it a "haven of rest", and keep up with the habit of praying and reading God's Word consistently. Thank you!
I love you all! God bless!
