Our Comfort in Prayer

         In my everyday life as an 18 year old girl, I often feel like things are out of control, a lot of thing that happen are things that I can fix or change. I can be overwhelming. But in the midst of all I have found a great comfort, prayer. The truth that God is powerful and can fix and change thing is part of the comfort, but theres a whole other side of things. He is close, I am His daughter drawing near to her Father, I can share my burden on Him who knows me and cares for me. He allows me to come to Him in weakness, in sadness, in excitement and times of great joy. Most of all if I'm close to my Father, things don't matter as much. Yes there are things that matter, and always will until there answered, (salvation of people I love). But the little things, the little cares and worries, what makes me anxious. The love of Him cast out my fears, being close to Him make things seem small.
       We must run to Him, like a child run to there father when afraid, He embraces us. He says, cast all your burdens on Him. Nothing is to Heavy for Him." He has never refused to bear your burdens, he has never fainted under their weight. "
 "I love the Lord, because He hears
          My voice and my supplications. " Psalm 116:1
"Run to the place where your fears have no voice any more."

You Are For Me

     Some days its hard to see, others its easier. No matter how I feel, its always been a comfort to know that God is for me. It means so much, His wrath is no longer on me, His grace hovers over me. "Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name you are Mine." "If God is for us,who is against us?" To say God is for us could mean so many different things, and all of them are lovely and true, it calms the fears of the fearful, it gives peace to the unrested.
      About two month ago I was going through a trail, and in it learned a promise that I will forever cling to. I was faced with things that I knew the Lord wanted me to do, but I was so afraid, I realized that I didn't trust in the Lord, I wasn't fully convinced that He was not going to leave me, I hadn't realized that "God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God" and then I found a song, I would listen to this song and pray and cry when I would hear it, it said " So faithful. So constant.  So loving and so true. So powerful in all You do. I know that You are for me.  I know that You are for me. I know that You will never,  forsake me in my weaknesses"
       Such a beautiful reminder all the time, He knows what He doing, its going to turn out for good, for those who love Him, He doesn't do thing to hurt me, He has a purpose and a plan for all He does in our lives. He is our loving Father, our precious Savior. He has won our our victory, and theres nothing He gives you that you, through His strength, wont be able to face.
       With Love,
