What it means: It sounds easy, keep praying.. but sometimes it’s harder than we realize to keep close to God. Whatever you are praying for, don’t give up. Keep praying, keep trusting, keep loving. It is so easy to get discouraged in this world and feel like giving up because we simply don’t have the answers yet. Keep praying. I struggle with patience so this is a good reminder for me to stay calm and keep praying. Being a planner at heart tells me to always have my ducks in line, but God whispers you don’t need to… trust me…keep praying. This is me wanting to hold control of it. We can’t do that, it tears us apart and relieves God of his duty.
Challenge: Whatever is pressing in your life, keep praying. Whatever you are wanting on your heart, keep praying. Whatever is hurting your heart, keep praying. Don’t give up. Trust he is working behind the scenes and trust his plan. Take the challenge today for whatever it is to release control and draw near to God. Ask for help, the Lord can give you strength while he’s working.
Prayer: Lord I thank you for always loving me. I thank you for being so great and so much bigger than my plan. I pray to work in my to release control and keep praying close to you. Please forgive me for wanting to keep control. I pray for my prayers to be answered but in your time, in your way. Amen.
Sending Love, SA
