Happy Monday. Welcome to another day that God has brought us to see. I hope all of you are doing well. Just wanted to share this amazing woman of God’s channel. I couldn’t keep it to myself. This channel has been a blessing and I hope that Zoe Siobhan’s channel will be a blessing unto you too. I want to share a few Bible verses along with quotes that are encouraging to help you through this journey.
For me, prayer is a way to communicate with God. It’s a way to express your heartfelt gratitude and concerns to God. The Bible reminds us that we should
“Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” -1 Thessalonians 5:16-18. It is God’s will that we fellowship and be thankful in every season in our life. You may not be in the season that your friend or family may be in. You may be in a season of pain, confusion, bitterness and so on. In all of this, though we may not understand why God causes us to go through these trials, God is molding us. Many times, we are in this season and this is God’s way of teaching us to draw closer to him. Hold on. Keep on Pushing. Know that your tears are still prayers. The Bible reminds us that God sees and knows all things.
“You keep track of all my sorrows.
You have collected all my tears in your bottle.
You have recorded each one in your book.” –Psalm 56:8
Then again, we may wonder why does God collect all our tears and put it in a bottle? Why can’t God wipe away the tears or prevent a situation from occurring?
James 1:12 tells us that, “Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him.”
This journey isn’t easy but with God things will work out and fall in place according to his will. Don’t expect to gain Heavenly riches and rooms here on Earth. If that was the case why did Jesus say, “My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you?” If we don’t face life’s challenges, how would we learn and grow? Many times, the battles we face are preparing us for what God will use us to do.
Lastly, I will like to discuss this matter regarding prayer. I’ve come across people who say they don’t know how to pray or so and so prays better than me. To me, it’s not about who prays better than you or how long one prays. The shortest prayer can be the one that flows from the heart than the one that prayed the longest and vice versa. If you don’t know how to pray, you can start with Matthew 6:9-13. Let God lead you. Speak to God like his your friend. Come boldly to the throne of Grace. God is waiting for you.
SHE WAS THE GIRL WHO READ THE BIBLE,
THE GIRL WHO PUT HER HOPE IN HIS WORD
THE GIRL WHO STILL PRAYED EVEN WITHOUT ANSWERS
SHE WAS THE GIRL WHO HAD A SIMPLE HEART
THE GIRL WHO LOVED GOD ABOVE ALL THINGS
THE GIRL WHO FORGAVE WITHOUT RECEIVE AN APOLOGY
SHE WAS THE GIRL WHO BELIEVED, WHO WAS PATIENT
WHO DIDN’T GIVE UP AND IN THE END, SHE WAS THE GIRL
WHO WAS NOT DISAPPOINTED.
—ANNE N. | THE GIRL WHO READ THE BIBLE
