Surrendering Thoughts and Prayers

My thoughts have been going sort of like this, I’ll have multiple “Lord have mercies” in one day and a whole lot of “Lord help” the next. This week has been extremely tough and it’s not quite over. I had to stop and just ask God’s help. Have you ever had to do that? Just stop. Ask God. Help Lord. Our help will surely come. I am a witness to it. When things are off pitch in your life just stop and ask God for help. We must learn to obey the stop signs in life and sometimes it can be hard to recognize them. Crazy situations and conversations, chaos and short fuses are all stop signs for me. I’m learning to ask God for help. I am sharing a portion of my personal prayer this week. I am sure God will hear us when we reach out and surrender all.

Lord help me surrender to you when everything seems to be going wrong and it looks like nothing is working out. Help me surrender to you when life gets busy and there’s not enough time to do the important tasks. Help me surrender to you when things and people just don’t make sense. Help me surrender to you when trouble comes, when the news is not good, grief strikes and fear stops me in my tracks. Help me surrender to you when I don’t understand how I’m going to make it through another week or another day. Lord help. I am confident that You Lord are my help.

The next time things start spinning around out of control just stop and ask God for help. He’s sure to be a very present help in your time of need.


Two Words on Health


It’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month and I am reminded again to “take charge” of my health.  I must do my part in living a healthy lifestyle.  The American Cancer Society website provides good information and encourages us all to help fight breast cancer.  Click here to learn more.



Logging Out

59d97e5b8f949659a2ef9db2a60958bbI have two words on how not to judge others and they are LOG OUT.  Sometimes I forget to log out of my computer leaving it open and susceptible to being hacked or other dangers.  God is not speaking in terms of a computer when it comes to judging others.  When I fail to take the LOG OUT of my own eyes and look in the mirror,  I am susceptible to much more danger to myself and others.  I am so grateful for God’s Word which  reminded and convicted me in two simple words from Matthew 7:1-5.

“Judge not, that you be not judged. For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and with the measure you use it will be measured to you. Why do you see the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when there is the log in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye. Mat 7:1-5 ( ESV)

Thought: We must not forget to LOG OUT to keep living on pitch.
