It's All Grace

Amazing things can happen when you allow the Lord to work in your life.

Blessings and Trauma

Do you ever wonder what Mary’s prayers consisted of?  Did she pray for blessings and if so, did she realize that the blessings would bring traumatic experiences to her physical life and her heart?

It’s easy to pray with your mouth “not thy will but Thine”, but does your heart and soul truly follow suit?

Even though Mary’s news from the angel was a blessing and she submitted to the Lord . . . do you think it was also traumatic?  Whether it is traumatic will all be determined by your perspective.

Some of the greatest blessings in our life can also bring trauma, yet the trauma as well as blessings each have an eternal purpose.  May we have a new perspective on answered prayers — accepting that which the Lord has “blessed” us with.

Rescuing Only Prolongs

Do not rescue your child from a cross that God has set up to bring them to the end of themselves.  If you do, they will NEVER experience the mighty hand of God and HIS deliverance, and will only prolong what the Lord is purposing to do!

Many times we hinder the Lord’s work, by getting in the way trying to help . . .  as if HE needs our help.  Open your clenched fists, giving your children to the Lord.  They’re better off in HIS hands anyway.
