From Pain to Peace through Prayer

I was reading 1 Samuel 9-18 and was inspired to write this:

Pray when something is causing you pain, stress or fear. Be actively praying. Don’t sit back and hope that it just goes away. Go before God, open your heart you to Him, pour it all out.

Talk with someone. Find a friend, pastor or someone you trust to share your heart with. Sometimes we just need to get it out, to voice our feelings.

Trust God. You can rely on Him. Trust that He will help you overcome, that He will be with you through this time, comforting and guiding you.

When we trust God, we have a peace that can only come from Him.

Remember that God is always ready to talk with you, from your joys to your pains.

Be ready to open your heart to Him.

Pride Gets In The Way

I never realise just how proud I was or how pride can get in the way of growth.

Recently, I have been going through a tough time and have had so many unanswered questions. But I was too proud to go talk to someone.

I finally, when reaching breaking point, went to speak to one of the pastors from my church. I can’t begin to tell you how free I feel, so many of my questions have finally been answered. Why didn’t I just ask them when I first had them? Why do we wait so long before we seek help?

It would have saved me so much time that was wasted on doubts and restless nights.

It takes a strong person to humble themselves and ask for help. Put down your pride and pick up a humble spirit.

Being humble is an ongoing fight for me, every day I ask God to break my pride and create humility in me. God is faithful, He never lets my pride pull me away from Him.

Joy. Prayer. Thanks

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
#1 ALWAYS be joyful
#2 NEVER stop praying
#3 Be thankful in ALL circumstances!

True joy comes from God. We are always focus on the bad things that happen in our lives, but forget about all the good that God has done for us. Next time life feels like its falling apart, stop and remember what God has done. You will be amazed of how many blessing He has given you!

When  its hard to remember, the best thing to do is talk to God, ask Him to remind you that He is in charge and that He is looking out for us.

Sooo…Be thankful!!! Life IS awesome! and filled with so much incredible things!

MY Prayers?

Aren’t these our typical prayers:”Lord I need…, Please give me…, Help me….?”

But what does God want? How will we ever know if we never ask Him?

Our prayers are often selfish. Even when are praying for others, we sill are thinking about ourselves. “Let quickly get through my prayer list so that I can pray for myself”.

Instead we should be asking God: “What do you want from me? What do you need me to do? How can I live to glorify you?”

Our prayers are not about our wants and needs. Our prayers should be about getting to know the will of God and His plans for our lives.
