Friday Praise & Prayers

‘I am with you & for you. You face nothing alone – nothing! When you feel anxious, know that you are focusing on the visible world & leaving Me out of the picture. The remedy is simple: fix your eyes not on what is seen but what is unseen. Verbalize your trust in Me, the Living One who sees you always. I will get you safely through this day & all your days. But you can find Me only in the present. Each day is a precious gift from My Father. How ridiculous to grasp for future gifts when today’s is set before you! Receive today’s gift gratefully, unwrapping it tenderly & delving into its depths. As you savor this gift, you find Me.’ – Jesus Calling

This is for me today, I am sitting here in our warm, safe, beautiful  house. Watching Boo jump from couch cushion to cushion. She’s not thinking about our next house. Not concerned about our house selling. Not wondering when the ‘right one’ will come along.

But I am. I am using my thoughts to bog down my mind with worry. Worry that is not helping the situation at all. And worry that is keeping my thoughts off of God.

But Boo,

 She is playing…

laughing…

enjoying her moment here.

Isn’t it amazing how little ones can teach us a thing or two?

This is how I am going to change my thoughts…

 praising God for being with me right here, right now.

He IS enough.

Today I am praying for 2 of my friends that lost their mother 1 year ago on Monday.

And my sweet friend from Texas whose young son has been gone for 2 years, on Monday.

{I luv you, Teri}

I am praying for a friend that lost her husband a year ago on Wednesday.

You all will be in my prayers this weekend, as I know sometimes the’ leading up to dates’ is just as difficult as an actual date.

What are your prayers & praises today? And if you get a chance, let a little child teach you something new today.
