Simple Devotion

I found this on the Simple Woman's blog and thought it would be great to start. If you would like to join in on this go to her blog.

For Today...January 21, 2008

Dear Lord,

I bring you my shortcomings... when things are going wrong I cry out to you, wondering why you have done this to us. Then over and over again I realize you are not "doing" this to us. I constantly worry over things that are beyond my control instead of giving you everything, including our finances.

I bring you my worship and praise... over your continued blessings on our family.

I bring you my prayer... of thanksgiving for your watch care over us in our times of need. I am humbled by your care over us. I ask that you help me turn my worries in to praise.

You spoke to me... last night when we were without heat. While I was in my "poor us" state you gave me peace and comfort knowing that you would be there for us.
*side note....we had no heat last night when it reached 9 degrees....but praise God we have an electric fireplace to keep us warm. The children enjoyed their "camp out" in the living room. Also our pipes did not freeze!!

James 1:6 "Let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind."
