Doubt

There are times I feel as if my prayers are effective and then, there are times when they seem “hit and miss”.  As I still my thoughts and soften my heart, right then and right there I realize that is when they are working because I know without a doubt it is God and not me.  The doubts I entertain are never, ever about God but my worthiness or receptivity.  Humility and gratitude fill my heart as I lay my earthly all on the altar.  I also know I am worthy and the precious child of God as we all are.

Psalm 5:3 reads “In the morning, O Lord, you hear my voice; in the morning  I lay my requests before you  and  wait in expectation.”

Disappointment

Recently, it was revealed to me that our granddaughter was not going to receive a much-needed scholarship from an organization, where I am very active.  It seemed she didn’t show enough initiative nor interest and I was very upset.  This morning as I was at my desk studying and praying, the thought came to me that God has this!  I don’t need to plan, outline and manipulate, but only trust Him.  Psalm 5:3 reads, “In the morning, O Lord, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait in expectation.”  No where in that verse does it require my doing anything but expect Good.  God doesn’t need my help.

Today, I will put that into practice and know all is well and only Good is going on.

Morning Requests

At times when I first awaken, my thoughts go immediately to  what I have been working on or things I need to do.  Before that takes hold in my consciousness, I recall two scriptures, one is Psalm 5:3 which reads, “In the morning, O Lord, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait in expectation.”  The other one is Philippians 4:13 and states, “I can do everything through Him who gives me strength.”

With that being said, I pause and wait on God to direct my path.

Prayer

This morning as I awoke early and began to pray, I realized that the words would not flow nor was I even sure I had the right words.  Then humbly I knew that I could just ask God to know my heart and I needn’t worry about “getting it right”.    Then I opened my Bible to Psalm 5:3 and it states, “In the morning, O Lord, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait in expectation.”  There is neither a right or wrong way to commune with God!
