Today is the day. And I really hope y'all feel comfortable participating. I would love love love it if you would leave a comment with a prayer request. Everyone is welcome- no blog is required.
Is there something weighing you down? Job? Family? Friends? Finances? Dreams? Illness? Heartache? Unrest? Confusion? This is the post to share. We all have something. There is no prayer too big or too small. And if you need prayer but are too shy to give specifics, it's OK to just ask for general prayers for personal matters. God will know.
As for my requests. I have two.
The first is for wisdom to make the right decision. I work with a group that I love with all my heart but it has added more stress and unrest to my life than one could imagine possible from a volunteer gig. And this is not recent- it's the better part of my tenure. I don't want to abandon ship. But I am having to make a lot of personal sacrifices to keep this up. It's not healthy for me. But I don't want to leave on a low low spot either. I am just so confused and need some sort of clarity and peace on the matter.
The second is for my future. I never imagined I would be this old and unmarried. I thought I would share a life with a partner and adopt a few children and grow green beans in the garden. I thought this phase of life would include field trips and PTA and ballet recitals. I thought by now I would have a hand to hold for life. If that's not the life I get to have, I pray daily that God lifts the desire from my heart. I just ache to have that life. The family. So I ask for prayers that I either stop having the dream or that the dream becomes a reality. This limbo is crushing. Literally.
So please let me lift you up in prayers today. Tell me what is on your heart. Or tell me about someone you know is in need. And please share in praying for each other.
I promise tomorrow we will be back to our normal chatter around here.
