A Gentle Reminder

My great friend Val [also a Baptist minister’s wife] posted this picture on her fb page. It was just what I needed in a somewhat stressed, busy week. Thanks Val!

It is exactly three years since someone who reads my blog emailed me and asked Bob me to pray about an awful situation she was in. We prayed. A few weeks later she sent a brief message saying things were beginning to improve, there was “light at the end of the tunnel”. Yesterday, out of the blue, she sent me a wonderful long email – she is in a really good place now, and prayers have been answered in amazing ways. I am so thrilled for her, and glad that things have worked out.

A gentle reminder to me that I must not be anxious, and God’s peace really does transcend human understanding. As the old hymn says, just “take it to the Lord in prayer”

  1. There's something very comforting in being able to give up ones troubles to a Higher Power, isn't there? I'm glad your reader wrote to you to let you know that the prayers helped her.


Always glad to hear from you - thanks for stopping by!
