Thoughts at 4 am...

Yep, It's 4 am...dh just left for work...lots of stuff going on...prayer needed for job situation...prayer needed for my friend Rosemary-she lost her dad on Wednesday. My friend, Beth, still needs prayers. I've been praying...I wake up and pray, I go to sleep praying, I pray throughout the day...sometimes I think, "GOD are you listening?" Of course I know HE is...sometimes I wish GOD would answer like the microwave beeps...quickly....sometimes HE does, sometimes HE doesn't....I try to look at every situation as "GOD, I look forward to how YOU'RE going to answer this. I know it will be an adventure and it will turn out better than I expected!" Sometimes I get a little discouraged...I think I'm there now...but I remember what someone told me long ago..."We don't go by circumstances or feelings...we go by the very WORD of GOD!" He's still right today...and that is my dh. So LORD I choose to trust YOU...because I'm either going to trust YOU or I'm not...anything in between is NOT...

Tomorrow I will have a teenage son...maybe that's part of the reason I'm discouraged...but in this case it would be sad. :( Not sad that he's a teenager...sad it's come so fast. Where's that cute little guy that use to put his little hands on my face and turn it so he could look right in my eyes to talk to me and make sure he had my attention? Now he's taller than me and looks down at me to talk to me...sigh....lol....

So at 4 am...these are my thoughts...
Blessings until next time...

Faith IS!!!!! Yes, we either believe and trust, or we do not. No inbetween on it. And when we do waver we have to pray "Lord I believe, help my unbelieve" just as recorded was said so long ago.

I would sing the version about living in a zoo but we all know that you all live in the crazy house not the zoo.;)

My Mom just taught 1 of her classes a lesson entitled, "GOD, Are You 'wistening' to me?" My nephew used to grab her face and turn it toward his, put his nose up to hers & ask, "Mom-Mom, are you wistening to me?" It was so funny, but like you I find myself often wondering...I know HE is listening. It's nice to know I'm not alone in feeling this way at times.

Love Ya!
