Dear God, It's Me Terra

If anyone believes in the power of prayer, I sure could use some right now.  I'd like to go into detail with you but I can't.  Things are spiraling downward and it's not looking good.  I've been trying to "Let Go and Let God" but it's been hard.  I believe in a God that hears my prayers and answers them.  I know that it will be okay, somehow, in the end.  But I am human.  I've shed tears.  I've cussed.  I've worried and stressed.  It's a full plate right now and I could use all the prayer lines to God that I can get.
Thanks!

I'm sorry you're having a rough time right now. Obviously don't know the situation but been having a hard time too... I also believe God listens and answers however I do also think He pushes us far to test us and ultimately make us stronger in the end. Usually when things reach a breaking point and seem the darkest He will come thru with the light. Hang in there!! Things will out work even if it's not how you think or would like them to. I wish you peace and comfort in these trying times. This too shall pass!

Also just last night read a post on http://blessedbeyondwords.com where she said...
"I always worry and fret over how God is going to take care of things, and then He just does. Slowly but surely, He has laid out stepping stone after stepping stone, gently leading my path in the way He would have it go. I just have to take care not to “jump” ahead and end up swimming to the next stone."

I really loved this analogy and thought I'd share with you...

Physical therapy for the heart and soul. Sometimes you have to work those 'muscles' to keep 'em strong! I am really sorry for the pain you're experiencing right now (and I know you're worried about your daughter, which can't help matters), but I can tell from reading your blog for several months now that you have the wisdom, the wit and the strength needed to weather your current storm. Seriously, Terra...'this, too, shall pass'.

I hope tomorrow brings some sunshine just for YOU! :)

Aw Terra, I'm so sorry you're going through such a rough time right now :(

We each deal with such things in our own way and it sounds like yours is prayer and giving things up to God-Just believe that He will help you and your family get through this.

Just remember, tomorrow is another day and hopefully a better one!

All my love and energies to you in your time of need.

My friend brought this prayer home from an AA meeting but I absolutely love it.
God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
Courage to change the things I can,
And wisdom to know the difference.

good luck and what can a prayer hurt?
