Hi, just a question here, Do you know that this thing that was given you was a blessing from God? Some times we really don't understand the ways of God but we need to have the faith to know that whatever happens is for the best. I don't feel that God ever removes the blessings he gives to us. Sometimes we attribute some of the good things that happen to God, when it may not actually have been from him. I know I have done that many times and I think I have finally figured it out. Maybe not but am still growing. Have you ever read FOOTPRINTS?
One night a man had a dream. He dreamed he was walking along the beach with the LORD. Across the sky flashed scenes from his life. For each scene, he noticed two sets of footprints in the sand: one belonging to him, and the other to the ORD.
When the last scene of his life flashed before him, he noticed that many times along the path of his life there was only one set of footprints. He also noticed that it happened at the very lowest and saddest times in his life.
This really bothered him and he questioned the LORD about it. "LORD, you said that once I decided to follow you, you'd walk with me all the way. But I have noticed that during the most troublesome times in my life, there is only one set of footprints. I don't understand why when I needed you most you would leave me."
The LORD replied, "My son, My precious child, I love you and I would never leave you. During your times of trial and suffering, when you see only one set of footprints, it was then that I carried you."
Sometimes when we think or feel that God is not there for us, it is because we have set him aside for a time. Those hard times are the ones where we really need to keep in touch with God through his word and through prayer.
Father, I just lift up this child to your loving and gracious care. Father, there are things going on in their life that need your help and intervention. Lord, I pray that you would bring this dear child back to your word and to their knees before you. That as soon as they do Father, you will hear and answer their prayers, comfort them and grant them the peace that will sustain them throught the trials that they are facing at this time. Lord, I ask that you would truely bless this child and lead them in the direction they need to go. Father, I ask that you would affirm to them that you are there and will always be there for them. Grant your peace and comfort this day. Thank You Father in the awesome precious name of Jesus, Amen
