Prayer...

This subject has been on my heart and on my mind lately. You know how some people you meet are praying people. They pray and truly love to pray. I know it is something as a believer we are to do regularly because it is how we talk to Our Lord, and that is also how we hear back from Him, but you know this has been such a struggle in my life...... I remember it not being a struggle. I remember even having experiences when I was praying. I have had moments when I  felt the presence of our Lord so strong it was  like His face was touching mine. But I am unsure what happened... and I am unsure how to get back there...

I desire for that presence again.. to hear HIM so clearly. I wish it was as simple as a recipe or a few words that would bring me back to that place with Him... What a peace, joy and reassurance knowing that I did not have to try and He was listening and He was there..

This week has been such a hard week. I could use HIS divine presence to cleanse me, to restore me and to hold me.

Goodbye Facebook...Hello thoughts...

Well I did... I took the plunge and deactivated my facebook. It is amazing how much of a time consumer it is. It eats time like you would not believe. I am hoping, praying with this new found time, and lack of distraction that it will give me motivation to blog more.

As my young men get older, move closer and closer in considering that step towards becoming one with someone.. I have come to realize there are so many resources out there pointed at men and what they need to do, or what they need to be as men to get married. The sad thing is there is hardly anything for young women.

Today I challenge Paul to look at a questionaire done by Stacey and James McDonald( you can find it on Staceys  blog thesacredcalling.com)  that they put together for young suitors for their daughters. After reading it he came down so heavy hearted. Guess the realization of the spiritual, emotional and physical responsibilities of it all became very burdensome. Of course I shared how we could do nothing in our own strength. Only Christ can strengthen us  and help us to be what scripture requires of us..

In that I thought.. hmm I need something for a female. Something for her to do as well. Even though men are leaders, women also hold a spiritual responsibility as well in the home. One just as great as a man... Did you know there is nothing? Absolutely nothing on preparing the heart of a woman... so I have considered writing a counterpart to Voddie Bauchams book... Instead of " What He must be to Marry My daughter" it would be " What she must be to Marry my son"--- As Sandra King stated.. I dont want my men to marry just anyone. My heart is the same way. I want them to marry someone who loves the Lord, someone understands what it means to live for Him, and understands what their role is to be in the heart of man. Lord Help me!

Lift me in prayer... and let the Words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart be acceptable in THY sight OH LORD!

Be blessed dear saints
