He is Good

Just as I finished my last post, I started thinking about Justin's job situation.  I don't worry about it because I know that it will come.  It's just that sometimes I'm not patient about it.  I keep praying and asking God about it over and over. 

But then I read this on another blog.  It says:

"When you bring Me prayer requests, lay out your concerns before Me. Speak to Me candidly; pour out your heart. THEN thank Me for the answers that I have set into motion long before you can discern results. When your requests come to mind again, continue to thank Me for the answers that are on the way. If you keep stating your concerns to Me, you will live in a state of tension. When you thank Me for how I am answering your prayers, your mind-set becomes much more positive. Thankful prayers keep your focus on My Presence and My promises."

And listen to this awesome verse. "Devote yourselves to prayer, keeping alert in it with an attitude of thanksgiving;" Colossians 4:2

Isn't that awesome?!  God is so good to us.  He gives us just what we need when we need it.  I needed that encouragement and a new way to look at things.  So now, let me get to thanking Him.

Melissa, thanks so much for your sweet comment. Isn't it amazing how God's Word always meets us right where we are and speaks to us in such real ways? I pray that God would provide for your family.

Hope y'all have a great weekend!
