A Life in God's Will

Hey guys! I wanted to share with you guys the opportunity to reach out that the Lord gave me today. I have been sick all day, my voice is gone, I have a sore throat, and congestion. But honestly, I am thankful for the sickness! It has helped me to take a step back and realize where I am at and see things or people differently then I did before. I am going to share two things on my heart. They both tied together which I thought was pretty amazing the way it worked out. Lately, I have been trying to accept the Lord's will for my life. I have the personality that wants to fight about whether or not its the Lord closing the door, or someone else. I realized this week that I needed to honor my parents and my friends decisions about certain things because that is how God will bless me. My parents said no about something yesterday, and it was really hard for me. I prayed for God's will but I was fighting this feeling that told me that it didn't matter what they really thought. Through prayer, it was great to see God work in me. My mom told me that she realized that I didn't fight about their decision and I dropped it. She thanked me for trusting them. It was very difficult for me and I realized that God really does put parents in your life to guide you (even if you think they might be wrong, most of the time, its you! I had to realize this the hard way). They thought it best if I waited for something I wanted and they were right because I ended up being sick anyways. 

The second thing was because I am sick, I didn't get to go to school or go out. It was nice because I could relax but God put this girl on my heart again. I met her at camp 3 summers ago and then saw her again last summer. We are friends on Facebook and I have seen for a long time that she is hurting. Her best friend left her and she doesn't really have anyone. I had sent her messages before, but she never replied. But today, I was able to message her and try to encourage her. I couldn't get away from the feeling that she needs someone. I remember being in the same situation. I was hurt and confused. Everyday, I felt like I needed to come up with new ways to make everything go back to the way it was. I didn't have anyone though. And that was really tough! So I want to be there for her. She is not a very open person so its difficult to talk to her sometimes, but I would really appreciate some prayers as I try to minister to her. I know she has been hurt a lot. I can almost see it in her eyes. A sadness and loneliness that can only be changed by Christ. But someone needs to help guide her to Him. I feel that I am the person God has chosen to be there for her. So thanks in advance for your prayers! They mean a lot. 

P.S. I am going to work on the prayer bar as soon as I get a chance. I need to talk it over with storyteller and see what all I can do. Thanks for you patience. 


  1. Great Post! I have also recently lost a friend, because her family left our church:( I barely ever get to see her now! At first I was upset at some certain people, but I have prayed about it and now I understand that whatever happens to me, God will always be there to help me through it!

  2. It is very difficult to lose friends. But one thing to always remember is even if u lose everyone, u haven't lost everyone because you can never lose God. He helps u through those kinds of sorrows and hurt.

  3. I've kind of "lost" a friend before, because of the same reason that Britt^ described. I'll be praying!!
