New Girl In Bloggy Town

I am the new girl on the block in this bloggy town! Every day I learn something new!

I really love all of my new friends. It is a fun way to connect with my forever friends as well. You know the ones who have been around forever!

But, oh my, it is humbling to learn something new while so many are watching me!

For instance, I was not happy with my title yesterday! Not at all! So I changed it. But I went back in to edit another place in my post it did not save my post with the changed title.

I really liked my title after I changed it, but I didn't want to go back in because I was not saving my changes and I was losing everything I had edited previously. So I left it as it was !!!!

Could I just share with you that title? It was How To/Want To/The Way I Ought To.

The reason for that title is the Lord revealed to me a new way to pray for my marriage........How To........
Then He changed my attitude from "I don't even want to" to "I Want To"........
Then He helped me do what I Ought To...........the way He wanted me to........

I have to praise Him for doing those three things! I have a feeling that my marriage might have been destroyed if He had not stepped in to help me.

The Psalmist wrote: "In return for my love they are my accusers, but I give myself to prayer."

The power is in prayer. When I give myself to prayer, my deliverer comes! He comes to restore my soul. He gives me strength to stand. He comes to be my helper and my advocate. He comes to be my friend.

"What a friend we have in Jesus, all our sins and griefs to bear. What a privilege to carry, everything to God in prayer."

I am preparing my soul to be attentive today because my Lord might whisper something in my ear and I don't want to miss it! Shhh! Did you hear something?

Blessings,
Cheri

Cheri, just early this morning the Lord was speaking to my heart about being even more intentional about my time in prayer. So often it can be hurried over as daily demands call. The Lord is asking me to strip away other things, "hindrances" so that I can spend more time on my knees. Thanks for this encouragement.

Love & hugs,
Joy
