Gratitude Day 456

Wed., May 13, 2020

James 5:13 – Is anyone among you in trouble? Let them pray. Is anyone happy? Let them sing songs of praise.

Good Morning Friend! Today is a wonderful day. It’s a great day. We call today the “present” because every day is a present!

I know. Maybe you aren’t fully feeling it. Something is a little hard on your heart. You’ve been praying and praying for something … and it seems like God just isn’t getting the message. Or, it appears the prayer is being answered not like you would prefer.

And your heart feels like this sign.

A big old fat jumbled mess.

Seriously, if this describes you? It’s OK. It’s alright. Because God sees it in your eyes. God hears it in your voice. God knows it’s feeling difficult. Hard. Overwhelming.

And God is still there.

It’s Wednesday prayer day. Something heavy on your heart? Please let me know so I can pray for this situation. My prayers do not ensure your prayer will get answered more quickly. Or the way you’d like. It’s simply another person sharing what’s on your heart.

Waiting for us when our hearts are happy. Waiting for us when our hearts are troubled. Waiting for us as we sing songs of praise.

Waiting for us when things seem crazy. Out of whack.

Please remember that you are a beloved child of God. Loved by God. Warts and all.

For God’s constant desire to hear our prayers, I am grateful.

Blessings –


Dear God – Thank you for being patient with me, especially when things feel out of sorts. Thanks for hearing my prayers. May I feel uplifted and sustained by you.
