I think it is very clear my family and I have been going through a season of difficulties. It has been a rough year on us and as I have said without God I could not have gotten through all we have faced thus far. Yes, I cried. I actually cried a lot through this time and at times I still get teary eyed about it but it hasn’t held me back from trusting in God. You see years ago I would have definitely given up. I would have stressed myself out trying to control the situation as I’ve stated in my blog post Thankful. Let me say it has not been by myself alone but because God has really been working in me through the years and I’ve learned to allow Him to control the situation. So in my time with Him what have I prayed during this season? I share some of the things below:
These are some of the things I have prayed over myself and my family during this rough season. I hope these can be of help to you. Know that even if you just cry, God will understand every single tear. If anyone knows us it is Him. I honestly had a lot of days where I just cried to God or just kept thanking Him over and over. Thank Him why when in a difficult season? I thank Him because I know all the great things He has gotten me through, for all He has done, is doing, and will do in my life. As I have stated before in my 4 Things to Pray Daily blog we will all have different seasons and we all face different obstacles so we will all have different prayers. There is no wrong way to pray just speak your heart to Him.
Let me share a little with you. In the past I honestly would let life take a toll on me. If life got tough I would kind of shut down spiritually. I would stop going to church because in the past it wasn’t something we needed to do. And let me say it shouldn’t be something you have to do it should be something you want to do. So when life situations would tumble over me I would still pray but believe me there was definitely a disconnection in my spiritual life. I still would pray for God to pull through and telling Him I trusted He would but actions in my life at the time was telling Him otherwise. Did He give up on me? No! But as for me, well my actions were telling Him I did. I was trying to control things and I was distancing myself from Him. All the wrong things to do. In this season I have definitely learned to truly trust in Him. When you are someone who likes to be in control of your own life as society says we should it is tough to surrender every aspect of your life to Him. I know that was me. But if you take anything out of this blog post please know that you should SURRENDER TO GOD. Know that surrendering to Him is the best choice I have ever made in my entire life. No matter how big the situation is know that nothing is too big for Him. Surrender all to God and see how He works in your life.
