Praying For You

I know you hear me Lord. I know you hear the cries of my heart. They are screaming for you to save someone I love, to save someone that desperately needs you. It’s happening all over again isn’t?

“Sitting here in the dark
Waiting on a miracle;
Don’t know what to think
Not much that I can do.
So I just keep praying, I am praying for you;
And when the sun is going down,
I’ll still be praying for you.”

I wrote this song so long ago, for a different person, under very different circumstances but my prayer is the same. I’m praying for you to reach down and save her from disease and pain, from fear and uncertainty. I’m praying for a miracle.

“He is my refuge and my fortress;
My God, in whom I trust.
Surely, He will save you…”

Betrayed by False Love

Several people I know, including myself, have been betrayed by a false prophet. Someone claiming to be sick that also posed as at least 5-6 different people over the last year through social media. This is someone we have prayed for countless times and I have talked about her on this page.

The bible says “beware of false prophets who come disguised as harmless sheep but are really vicious wolves.” Matthew 7:15

I cannot begin to tell you the anger and hurt that I feel right now. I cannot begin to tell you the impact this has had on my family because I defended her when others started to doubt. This person spoke of the bible often, and reached out to me hundreds of times just to love on me, and lift me up with praise. Why would a person do such a thing??

Everyone keeps saying that we need to pray for her, but how do you pray for a person you have prayed for hundreds of times only to find out it was all for a lie? How do you muster the strength to be sincere in caring for someone else that hurt you so badly when you feel like you have nothing left to give? When all you know in your heart is betrayal, anger, and sadness?

I am holding onto Jesus a little tighter today. I am grasping for truth and understanding in this situation, and my only prayer right now is very simple:

Jesus, be with me.

What Will Be

I cannot speak of the things God has been revealing in my life. It’s overwhelming. All around me, He has been working behind the scenes. I didn’t know. I truly had no idea.

First, it was my husband’s vision (if you don’t know the story, I invite you to listen to the sound clip at the end). His vision set us on a course we didn’t understand. We didn’t even know the outcome or what God really wanted from us but it was already in motion. And the strange thing is that every one of my dreams, everything I have prayed for since I’ve known my husband, lines up with this vision.

There have been other visions too, visions by others that are now part of the story. Their visions aren’t pretty but they are powerful and reveal God’s truth. They reveal a plan we never could have dreamed, especially considering these visions took place before any of us met.

Lives are intersecting. Love is reaching past our own comprehension and building bridges. We are no longer strangers but family under the same God. We are one.

The time has come when we can no longer stand. We are not proud. We are not self-reliant. This life doesn’t exist for us alone. Our time is not ours. Our love is not meant for safe-keeping. And so we kneel before others that need us. We bow to the will of God, knowing that all things work out in His glory… in His perfect timing.
