Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God. And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.
These verses have turned up twice for me this morning. Do you think God is trying to tell me something? :)
I feel somewhat overwhelmed this morning at the length of the journey ahead. We are trying to find our new normal. We have tried a couple that didn't work, but I think we are on God's path now. It is amazing to watch how He is moving in our family!!! I am so thankful that the Spirit is interceding for us according to God's will!! Where would we be if He wasn't!?! My prayers are selfish prayers, but the Spirit knows what I need and prays accordingly. Thank You, Lord, for the promise of the Holy Spirit.
I need to continue to look at life only a day at a time. But, I find myself looking ahead and trying to figure out what we will do when we get back in a rut again. Hello, Michelle!!!!!! Stop!!!!! What would life look like if we always just looked at it a day at a time? Would we grow weary of the journey? Would we stop leaning on God for everything? Right now I have to lean on God and I feel close to Him as He refines me. A day will come when I turn to my own devices, and I will fall again. I want to continue to live my life forever a day at a time leaning fully on my Savior. Can you imagine what that kind of life would look like? Allowing God to be strong where I am weak everyday, and allowing Him to truly direct my steps and guide me everyday. WOW!! I pray that I get so in tune with God that that is the case.
Father, thank You for working all things together for my good and Your glory no matter what I do!!! I know I mess up everyday, and I am thankful that You can take that and use it for good in my life. Where would I be without You as my Rock!?! Come fill me today. May I stand on You every minute today and allow You to be my strength and write my faith. Thank You for the wonders You are doing in our midst!!!! Thank You for the many flowers that are coming out of Janie Beth's garden! You are amazing!!! I love You! I need You! Help me to lean on You and not let my mind get ahead of me because that is when I get anxious. Take my fears, anxiety, and doubt. Lord, I believe, help my unbelief!!! Thank You for the blessings of today. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen
