Through Christ -Your Friends & Family Have GREAT Power!
Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working. James 5:16
Thank you – Thank you, dear friends and family. I called on mine yesterday morning and by afternoon I was feeling their power, His power! It is so great to have some loving Christian friends and family in your corner who will pray for you. But do we use them? Something I have begun to do more readily is, reach out to HIM -through them -before things get too overwhelming and then I end up crying out to God.
For much of my young life, it had been my nature to not even think of calling out to God until I really didn’t have any more strength and calling out was simply an act of desperation! (Ask others for help? -my word, ‘No, I got this!’ was my old way.) Now I truly understand the power God gives us all. And he wants us praying for each other. AND IT WORKS!
As many of you know I have been doing my best to finish out my last two weeks at my full-time dialysis director position, get my book launched off, get PiYo classes up and running so it is ready for me once I do leave my other job and really give my all to Fulfill Your Legacy in 2017. It has been quite a balancing act. But, God has been at the foundation of it all / holding the ropes ‘so to speak’ as I have walked this tightrope as diligently as possible. However, with the end so close I started taking my attention off of His strong support and putting my attention to the end, and away from the security I have been leaning on the whole time- GOD. I knew this. I could feel me do it. BUT I AM SO CLOSE (2 weeks left)… the prize at the end was distracting me. Well, as hard as I tried- I couldn’t refocus on my own. Believe me, I was trying but I was doing a cruddy job at getting refocussed. So what were my options? Keep pushing, feel defeated, pray harder, try and try harder….?
I started calling out to a few people I know HAVE THE POWER- HIS power! AND, by the way- they do not HAVE MY DISTRACTIONS THAT WERE GETTING THE BEST OF ME! let’s admit it Niccie…. I was getting too greedy for the end!
They, HE, has done great things for me. I literally felt great and refocused – back on track that afternoon! I wasn’t even sure at first- if I was imagining it. But I didn’t care if I was. I was simply grateful. By bedtime, the peace and focus was still there and I was more assured. This morning I woke with such joy and gratitude! 2 more focused weeks!!!
THANK YOU – THANK YOU – DEAR FRIENDS, FAMILY, AND GOD!
