Prayer and update for my friends.

Life is good. My husband has gotten a job. ( Thank you all for your prayers, and kind words) My sons are strong and healthy. I am spending my days working on not only my physical health but also my spiritual health.

God is such a blessing in my life. At times I feel I do not deserve to be so blessed. I can only praise God more for watching over me, and blessing me with all that he has. I am thankful and humbled.

I know I have been silent of late. My reasons are simply that I have felt at a loss for words. Words just would not flow from me, so I have wanted to just sit with God, and allow my soul to strengthen within him before writing here in my blog.

I have thought about shutting my blog down truthfully, but something in me says this is not the time.

I have honestly fought with myself on many occasions, thinking that if I have no words or thoughts to share, I should just end the blog. The other part of me, the part deep within my soul shouts at me no it is not time to end this blog. This voice or feeling one might say has kept me from doing so. Please understand, I love my blogger friends dearly! I have not forgotten any of you trust me. I simply have run out of words. I do not want to force myself to write down words simply to write them. Instead I want this blog to be a place of not only growth, but one of substance. So If I go long periods of not writing, please know it is because no words are flowing. :)

Tonight following that same voice deep down, I feel the need to say a prayer for several of my friends. You know who you are. The prayer is for those of you who are struggling with life issues. Your own voice inside or feeling will tell you this is for you. I chose a song by Casting Crowns for my prayer. Yes I know that sharing a song as a prayer might seem silly, but It really has the words that I want to pray.

Please hear my heart dear Lord as I lift up this prayer in words for all those friends who are struggling with the problems in their lives.

Lord, I lift my friend to You, I've done all that I know to do
I lift my friend (friends)to You
Complicated circumstances have clouded his (her) view
Lord, I lift my friend up to You

I fear that I won't have the words that he(she)needs to hear
I pray for Your wisdom, oh God, and a heart that's sincere
Lord, I lift my friend up to You

Lord, I lift my friend to You
I know he (she) means much more to You
I want so much to help him (her), but this is something he (she) has to do
And Lord, I lift my friend up to You.

Lord, I lift my friend to You, I've done all that I know to do
I lift my friend to You
