I had two dear friends ask me this week how they could pray for me, and I had another dear relative offer to clean my house for me. My set response is always, "I'm fine, please don't worry about me. Help someone who really needs it." Who am I kidding? I need prayer and I need some help every once in a while. I don't know why I think God doesn't send His help in the form of other Christians to give us a hand when we need. Not only do I need the occasional maid, I need some prayer warriors to join with me on a few things.
*First, my house has now been on the market for one year. Skip and I are trying to rent it now-very cheap, and I would love to have that happen before my next house payment is due.
*Second, I would love to be able to think of Christmas without a pit in my stomach of how I'm going to buy gifts while paying two mortgages.
*Third, I would love for Skip's upcoming dental work to go well, and not be an astronomical price and no infections would surface.
*Fourth, I would love to be able to lay all of the three previous things on the altar, and believe God for everything without hesitation. I have seen God work in such amazing ways in my life, but I am feeling very weak at the moment, yet still trying to hope and have joy. And for once, I cannot blame my emotional state on PMS. It's just little ole human ME. Thanks for letting me vent(0:
