$10,003 Ask and You Shall Receive?

 

hope

Ask and you shall receive. Words that I have heard over and over again. I always seem to have a battle I admit with Jesus as he’s the one that says those words. I answer back but Lord I do ask and he answers yes and you get your answer. It’s never as we intend at times but our Lord does answer us.

With each worry or inquiry we have there will always be an answer to it. More than likely it’s not what we expected. One thing is for sure you have to put your effort into as well.

Hard work does pay off, pairing it with prayer is how it works. Your prayers can not be those that just come out of your mouth they need to come from your soul. Heartfelt and full of love.

Giving it up to our Lord truly and completely can be so hard. Trust me I know. The words come out but are you fully giving it up to our Lord? What I have learned it can take time. It can bring tears but once you release it to him you feel a peace. Although you may not get an answer that you had hoped in your prayers you will know he has heard your plea.

Our Lord is merciful and loving. Are you wondering what is up with the title of my post? Well that is what my family would need to move. (Yup I calculated to a tee)

It’s something that has been in our hearts as there are issues but never the less we are so blessed to have a house even with the issues at hand.  Right now not going to lie it’s really hard but again our Lord has been merciful to us and we have been able to do what we need to do for our kids.

As I watch my husband work so hard for us my heart aches. How I pray I could do more. I pray for guidance and say let thy will be done.

I know my prayers never go in vain. I have seen them answered one way or another time and time again. I give praise and each day I try to learn more about patience and trying to be silent so I can listen. It is so hard especially with how busy life can get but we have to take time to stop and listen.

Yet our hearts yearn and know this is something we must do  not only our well-being but our children.

I hear our Lord saying not yet and be patient even if it’s hard and tears come to my eyes because of what we are dealing with does make me sad.  Issues that need more than just a “band-aid” to fix in the house.

Never the less I am thankful and joyful. This house is a shell. What counts is the well-being of family and knowing the love we have for each other which is the most amazing of blessings.

If you could do me a favor. Let me know what are you thankful for and if you could say a prayer for us. For guidance and answers.

I am thankful for the chatter and conversations  I get to listen to as my kids greet one another arriving from school and come to me to tell me the other tales of the days. To be able to live these amazing moments. Worth more then anything.
