Sitting on that promise

I was praying tonight.

I am by no means a Bible scholar. (Although I did go to a Christian college & have a minor in Bible, but that was a long time ago & honestly, I don’t remember those classes very well. Sorry professors, it was me, not you.)

But I do love to pray scripture. When I don’t have quite the right words to say, I pour out His Promises.

I remind myself of how good He is.

How Faithful.

How Just.

Tonight was one of those nights when the words weren’t coming.

I was trying to pray, but my mind was fretting over what I was trying to pray about.

So I stopped.

And I prayed Romans 8:28
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.

And I told God I was standing on that promise.

And then I got real honest.

I told Him I was too weak to stand.

So I’m sitting on that promise.

And I believe He is sitting with me.

I believe He is holding my right hand.

He understands I’m struggling.

He is working on my behalf.

He is working on behalf of the one I am praying for.

I don’t have all the answers, but I know He does.

And I’m sitting on His promises tonight.

You are so loved.
