Where we turn for help

Shortened want lists, k.i.s.s.

5/15 Our God, we thank you for the opportunity of prayer – to turn to Thee for help and guidance as we travel through life.

Teach us to keep our ‘want lists’ short to ask for only what we really need and above all include others who seek health, relief from loneliness & peace in their nations. Amen

Shoulda-Coulda-Woulda is my new category for prayers that fell through the cracks. I missed the date, there were two or more, or whatever. They are not to be forgotten and relegated to the back of the recipe box.

Where we turn for help, indeed is our compass. Our want lists, to do lists, and every other list becomes huge when our gratitude list is neglected. When God is where I am looking and trusting, things fall into place. I don’t have to have a plan, but I have to walk it out.

Or in this case drive 2 of the chairs, while the generous seller and her husband volunteered to follow me home (and move them inside!) with the other two and an oak table.

God really does move things.
