12 Reasons Your Prayers Aren't Answered

Sometimes our prayers go unanswered.  Why is that?  I’ve prayed for answers for days, weeks, months and even years.  Some things I've given up praying for and other things are continually on my heart.  There are many reasons our prayers don’t get answered immediately.

It started with a question.  Why was fear invading my thoughts because of my suggestion for a couple of friends to connect?  Such a simple scenario yet a profoundly deep question.

It had to do with control.  And trust.  And fear.

Patience as a Gift

Have you ever said, ‘give me patience, Lord, and give it to me now!’  We can see patience as something we don’t have enough of, something we struggle with or something we want more of.  Wouldn’t life be so much easier if we had more patience?

There are four voices in my head; body, mind, heart, and spirit.  Just like the movie Inside Out, they sometimes talk all at once and it can be difficult to figure out which one to listen to.

This is How We Love

The words we speak reveal our hearts.  When we are with others, we need to listen carefully to what they are saying.  It helps to ask for direction from God in our assessments of them.  Pray that His truth will be made known.  That is how we love.

Gifts Worth Sharing

You are a person with God-given gifts that are to be shared with the world.  Do you hide them in a box out of fear that others may not appreciate what you have to offer?  To share your gifts, you need to ‘get out of the box’ and have your gifts be seen and experienced by others.

The Power of Sharing

During this holiday season, we share laughter, recipes, gift ideas, and sorrow.  Sharing is free and it can change someone’s life.  The more we share, the more we offer to others.  Let’s make sharing a habit.

Love and Judgment

Sometimes the opinions and actions of others make me irritated and unable to love.  Love is, however, not about me and my feelings, but it is about them and their feelings.  Love is a verb. It is an action.  It is something done on purpose towards someone else.

Peace

We all need peace.  In our fast paced ‘busy’ culture, it is elusive.  I stumbled into it a few weeks ago and the beauty and feeling that came over me was palatable.  I believe that God is always there and will provide peace if we will just enter in.

If Only We Could See 'It'

CHALLENGING CONVERSATIONS: Have you ever been with a group of people and wonder what is wrong?  Conversations are awkward and strained, you find it hard to engage in conversation, and you get the distinct feeling that someone in the room despises you?  This happened to me recently.  I want to be prepared the next time I go into a situation like this so I can love more purely and completely.
