2 Peter 5.7 says..CAST all cares upon the Lord and He will sustain you -- HE will never let the righteous fall.
I wrote several blogs last week, as I was on vacation and spending more time with the Lord in conversations. This weekend.... Today...school started again and I am back into the routine----
---where I carve out time for God -- but work and life gets a hold of me.
On Saturday, a dear sister in Christ stated something and today -- the Lord, has reminded me of that statement over and over.
She said..."well, I am just praying and if it all goes pa-hooey....and it becomes a mess -- it is God's mess and HE will fix it".
I have thought and thought about that statement all weekend. I am amazed by God daily and then, when I think longer, I catch myself saying..."really??? Am I (you) really surprised by God?".
God does tremendous and crazy things. God is unbelievable at times....and yet -- SO believable.
I am getting ready. For the past 12 weeks, an event has been on my mind. I have planned, gathered with fellow sisters in Christ to plan, and I have prayed and prayed and prayed....and now -- I am 4 days away ------
I won't go into details, but this weekend is my 5th Women's Encounter Weekend where a group of ladies and myself will travel and seek God to orchestrate a spectacular weekend for 23 women -- that are seeking God.....asking for complete freedom from past hurts and so forth and they too have been preparing for their Encounter with Our Lord.
I am completely humbled by WHAT God does on these weekends and it creates such a Jesus High in me -- that when I finish with one....my mind begins to plan the next. It is ALL GOD.
Anyway, as I walk out these last few days of details and checking my 'list'...I pray and spend quite a bit of time fasting some things and spending extra time within God's Word. I also check and recheck my head and heart and ask the Lord to show me any ....any....any..unforgiveness or unrighteousness..... or anything. If I don't have a 'clear' conscience and link to God...how can I look in the eyes of another and tell her ---- God will.....
And then I think of what my sweet friend says......"well, I am just praying and if it all goes pa-hooey....and it becomes a mess -- it is God's mess and HE will fix it".
This is God's weekend and YES....if it all falls into a mess -- God will fix it. I trust God. I trust our planning and our prep -- I trust the leadership team joining me....
What I don't trust - is Satan -- and he won't rest and will throw every dart possible and he will do anything to steal, kill, or destroy. He distracts... He lies.... and he still thinks - he has a chance.
So -- with that --
I will pray this eve -- and include in my prayers -- everything......
Lord -- I have released the people/couples we have been praying with ..... I have released the spoken and unspoken requests I have voiced and written in my journal. I have asked...begged...and reminded You of certain requests... and I have looked and looked at my list.....
As You KNOW Lord -- I am hopeless and unable to do anything -- unless YOU are in it...and unless YOU are with it. Lord -- take over.
Lord, if everything falls apart... Fix it.
Lord, I ask you send 25,000 extra angels to surround those women traveling to Titusville on Friday - protect them and don't allow Satan to distract them. Lord, I pray all 40 will be there -- as YOU do great things with the number 40 -- but I have trust in You.
Lord, for the women reading this -- following the Desperate Prayers I have been writing and following the Prayers for Marriage as well...... HOPE -- give them HOPE.
Lord -- I have CAST all my cares upon You. However Lord, before I finish -- I am being a bit 'needy'.... I want to thank you for the blessing of today's "bone"......
( I will ask God to send me a bone -- or a sign to know that HE still thinks I am blessed and highly favored. I get that expression from a sweet woman - named Carlie )
So anyway Lord.... thank you for my bone today -- and Lord, I will need another tomorrow and one on Wednesday as well ........ As I am standing in the gap and believing this weekend will indeed be a Jesus HIGH...but my flesh proves weak at times. And according to Your Word - YOU know I am made of dust.... you know I am human..... so - make me supernatural this week...pump me UP with YOUR confidence....YOUR patience...YOUR passion....and YOUR compassion.
I need your compassion.
"well, I am just praying and if it all goes pa-hooey....and it becomes a mess -- it is God's mess and HE will fix it".
Lord, thank you for fixing our messes. Even the future ones I will make. IN Jesus name!
