God teaching me learning

A Matter of Prayer

Have you ever had questions for God.. that you just wanted Him to Answer? Like.. instantaneously answer?

Recently, I have struggled with a situation in my life, that I had to hand completely over to God.

COMPLETELY over to Him!

I haven’t blogged about it, or said anything on here.. or facebook. Only a close friend & my husband knew. A lot of people run to the Internet and just start.. Blabbing! Like diarrhea of the mouth. Only,.. what they say.. is not glorifying to God.. in any way, shape, fashion, or form. They are only making “idols” of themselves. Trying to still the lime-light from God. That is something that I NEVER want to do! Only He is deserving of Praise and Glory.

All the Good that I have… is… from Him!

I have learned that.. through every struggle.. or storm that I face in life,.. He is always there. Lending an ear to hear,.. a “shoulder” so-to-speak to lean on, and loving arms to take me in.. & just hold on tight. He cares, He loves, & He hears!

He may not answer the way we want Him too….but,.. He does answer.

Life isn’t easy & It’s full of surprises and … hurts!

I want to be more intentional about my blogging. Sharing… Not just about me & the Walker household.. but, about what God is doing in & through us!

Maybe that’s why this little storm.. passed by.. so that I can share what God has layed on my heart.. to share.

Romans 12
Living Sacrifices
1Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God—this is your spiritual act of worship. 2Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
3For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the measure of faith God has given you. 4Just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, 5so in Christ we who are many form one body, and each member belongs to all the others. 6We have different gifts, according to the grace given us. If a man’s gift is prophesying, let him use it in proportion to his[
b]faith. 7If it is serving, let him serve; if it is teaching, let him teach; 8if it is encouraging, let him encourage; if it is contributing to the needs of others, let him give generously; if it is leadership, let him govern diligently; if it is showing mercy, let him do it cheerfully.
Love
9 Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. 10Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. Honor one another above yourselves. 11Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. 12Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. 13Share with God’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality.
14Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse. 15Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn. 16Live in harmony with one another. Do not be proud, but be willing to associate with people of low position.[
c] Do not be conceited.
17Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everybody. 18If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. 19Do not take revenge, my friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,”[
d]says the Lord. 20On the contrary: “If your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink. In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head.”[e] 21Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

Lord! Help me to be a Living Sacrifice! Thank YOU for your infallible word .. which brings comfort.. and healing to my soul! Help me to forgive.. and Love with sincerity, but NEVER compromise what YOUR will is.. for me!

  1. I love this and I agree. I struggle sometimes as to what to share on my blog and what to keep personal. I don't want to sound like I am patting myself on the back ever. I KNOW all the blessings we have are from God. I pray for humility and grace. Thank you for sharing these verses and your perspective…it really touched me today:)
