Prayer Journey — Reflection

I look back over my life and I see your hand, your eternal grace, your love. I do not understand why you brought me to this point in my life. I have been through so much and yet today I feel so blessed by so many people you have put in my life. Your care for me is evident. I thank you today dear God. I give you praise for what you have done in my life. I pray for your wisdom to guide me. Show me how I can best serve you.

  1. Very good! I’ve thought the same thing especially when as I approached years in age that one would think the difficult got a lot to learn was behind me and was mature and older and wiser that the worst difficulties and attacks upon my life came at me! A time when things got so bad that even with a severe health injury that occurred in a work environment set like a trap by a most devious sinister man with some earthly power; and it got even worse when I had to fire the lawyer and represent myself! I only made it through all of that because of Jesus Christ that is the true take away not that I won my own case and went onto a stable life again even improving all of my health damage to practically being free of it but still damaged and having suffered severely which beat me up.

    Look at it this way my Christian friend, my Dad said many times, “I’m only here because God still needs me here, but, when He wants me up there with Him I will not be here another second.” Former President Anwar Sadat of Egypt I had noticed in video and written text said basically the same thing to his wife when she asked him why he won’t listen to his security experts about wearing body armor! I wondered if Anwar was tuned into Jesus but being in the Muslim world and having grown up as one on the Nile River he was being sensible and diplomatic and not telling anyone. When he was assassinated He was looking up into the sky after military jets had flown overhead during a ceremony and in that instant he was murdered!

    I think God is at work of course in many things and here I am talking about a man I think I liked a lot who was a supposed Muslim but spoke like my own father. It is an established fact that in many predominately Muslim nations there are those who walk around and act as Muslims but are hiding their desire to be and belief in Christianity but cannot be open for the obvious reprisal concern or extreme danger to themselves and family.

    Our true Armor comes from our Lord Jesus Christ who is with us and if He wants us to wear additional protection because it’s necessary to carry out the Father’s will then so be it; otherwise we can rest assured that our faith in our Savior is what we always need and is absolutely necessary. Amen.
    Brother in Christ Jesus,

    1. Thanks for sharing your story and your thoughts. It reminds me of Psalm 20:7: “Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the LORD our God.” When we are obedient to following God’s plan and His way we are fulfilling His plan and purpose for our life. Blessings.

      1. Absolutely wonderful how you said that and I love that Psalm, it is so fitting how you saw this so clearly; with the Lord in your heart!

        I did go a step further because right after responding to your beautiful posting I had another consecutively come up that was not any coincidence so I went with the heartfelt messages and inspiration coming from Jesus Christ; and so this is the link! I was hoping you will be pleased and further inspired by my action I took; which I had wondered if I should ask first; but time being limited right now to get things done I trusted in the Lord! Amen.

        Brother in Christ Jesus,
