The Lord is my Shepherd

…I shall not want…

the ways of the world.

Giving glory to God. This was a very stressful week to end a very stressful month (not calendar month). I was at my breaking point when I decided to begin praying as I used to years ago. I used to pray all the time about everything but for various reasons, backslid to the point of my prayer being “as needed” only. Bad idea.

Prayer is good for God & for us because prayer is positive, hopeful, grateful & everything uplifting. This is what God meant for His people. Win-win. A relationship of giving & taking as in any successful relationship. So I began praying again for thanksgiving & to give glory to God in the name of Jesus.

The day before my miracles were received, I asked God for a miraculous resolution to two stressful problems that were going on in my life.

I can’t go into details of what it concerned but suffice to say that almost the very second I walked back into my door after resolving one problem, my cell rang with a resolution to the second one. I immediately thanked God because I believe these resolutions occurred like this to show the goodness of God in all His glory. Both problems could have turned out very badly for me but miraculously did not.

The power of prayer cannot be understated even when our prayers are not answered how or when we would have hoped for. It’s always God’s timing, not ours. It’s always God’s will, not ours but suffice to say the nature of God is “there is no good thing that he will withhold to those that walk uprightly.”
