These things add up. Every one of us needs to pray; when all hell breaks loose and the dam bursts we’ll be on high ground, untouched.
The very first thing that God showed me in this verse- is the tense. When the dam breaks, we will be untouched.
As in, we will already be on the high ground. We won’t get pulled under the water, we will already be standing.
The second thing I saw? When it breaks.
It will break.
There are times that we go through, living here on earth, that aren’t easy. Plain tough you could say. A version of hell you could call it.
But being prayed up will prevent you from feeling like you are drowning and won’t make it out alive.
Prayer is a great way to prepare yourself for things to come. It isn’t just a thing you do after you are in over your head.
So many times we hear, “Well, all we can do is pray…”
ALL we can do is pray?
ALL we can do is pray?
The only thing left to do is talk to God and ask him, the Creator of the Universe, the Author of life, our Healer and Protector if he can do this or that?
What backward people we are.
OF COURSE HE CAN!
We need to start utilizing the power of prayer, we need to start believing that it is powerful, and that it can change outcomes…
Because it can.
A quick recap of our weekend?
Friday I went to Hattiesburg and got te iPhone 5. I love it. I was in an out of AT&T in less than 20 minutes.
Saturday Wesley went an did a graffiti thing at his brothers new gym. It turned out great.
While he was in Ellisville, I was cleaning his office at the church. Then I went to a shower, and Lucy went with Mawmaw to a birthday party and spent the night.
Only having one kid (and the baby at that!) meant that I chose what to watch on TV. It was nice.
Church Sunday was busy as usual. Sundays are pretty hevtic.
I went through some old pictures of me and Wes, trying to see who our kids look like.
Look what I found.
That a 2 year old me and Lucy.
I think we favor just a little.
Here is Wesley and Lucy. She got his cute cheeks!
And Judah looks like me too.
I’ve had more people tell me that Judah looks like me than they ever did with Lucy.
Boy, at birth they both looked JUST like Wes!
Here is how cute me and Wes use to be!
That’s my 2nd grade picture and either Wesley’s 1st or 2nd. We were so sweet!
And then we grew up. Sorry, parents. But we had to grow up to give y’all this:
Lucy and I made some faces while we were waiting on church. She’s such a funny kid!!
An then we attempted to get a goo picture of her and Mary, but y’all know how that goes.
And that was our weekend!
Judah slept like a CHAMP last night. I got 7 hours and 15 minutes straight. It was lovely.
Babies are cuter the more sleep you get. That’s why grandparents always love their grand kids so much 😉
Ok, I’m lookin at this right now, so I guess I gotta go…
Such a girl!
