Love and Prayers

I had not intended to write this blog. In fact, I haven't been writing many blogs lately because I simply just have not had much time. But while waiting for my household to finish getting ready yesterday morning, I logged onto my blog to see what was going on in "blogland".  I had just finished reading a post by a dear sister in Florida which caused my heart to break and cry out to God on behalf of her and her family when these thoughts occurred to me and the Lord said, "Write it down".

The Scriptures tell us to "pray without ceasing", to "make our requests known to God", to pray for the will of heaven to be done on the earth, to praise God in ALL things and to remember each other in prayer and with fasting if necessary.

I have been holding so many people and things up in prayer lately that it could be overwhelming if the Holy Spirit wasn't leading me and holding me during these prayer times.

The Lord has been reminding me for the past several months, over and over, that He is all about People. He created us. He loves us. He cares for and about us. We are the core of who He is. We have been created in His image. If our main concern is not other people, then we are falling short of being who we are meant to be.

I am reminded of what an honor and a privilege it truly is to pray for others. I, too often, easily get caught up in my own life and circumstances and forget to pray for others. When I do this, the Lord brings it to my attention through my tendancy toward depression. The enemy intends for me get stuck in that place of depression, but Jesus, ever loving, gently reminds me; holds the mirror before my eyes and says, "Lysa, pray for others."

O that men would behold the heart of the Lord and see that He loves each of us. O that men would behold the heart of the Lord and extend His love to others. Oh! But His Spirit is ever present, ready to remind us in His wonderfully loving way!

Dear reader, the Lord loves you. I love you (because of Him and through Him).

I pray you have a truly blessed day. I pray that you feel His presence in a real and tangible way. I pray that His peace and comfort guide you today. I pray that you know Him more as you seek to love and serve Him by loving and serving others.

Blessings to you and yours!
