I have been stuck in the “be still” place. You know that place, between something that you are not happy with and the “what do I do now” place. My husband had an affair 8 years ago for 3 years. I’m just finding out now, 8 years later.
Why Do We Pray?
We had prayed so hard for the miracle. We rattled the gates of heaven for our mom. She was on so many prayer chains I can’t even tell you how far that reached. So when she died, I got to thinking, what’s the deal? Well, let me try to capture my feelings a little better: WHAT’S THE DEAL?????? I wanted to know, if God is just going to do what He’s going to do anyway, why do we pray?
Pray and ask God to fill you with a desire for His Word and for ways to help you stay in the Scripture daily. You can make excuses about how busy you are, how many kids you have, how close it is to Thanksgiving/Christmas/Festivus and/or the baby is teething. But you and I both know that we always make time for the things we truly want to do.
Kid’s behavior can be so chaotic sometimes. As an elementary school teacher, random outbursts of flailing arms, haphazard body movements and silly noises are actions that I witness on a daily basis. Most of the time they are typical childlike behaviors. Sometimes they just need to shake their sillies out!
