    Hi Barbara, thank you so much for sharing your thoughts. I am so sorry that life is hard. I get it. I really do. I don’t know if you have had a chance to read my devotion today at Proverbs 31 Ministries “Feeling Desperate for Help” but the whole point of the devotion is that no matter what … no matter if I feel Him, see Him, sense Him … no matter what … I will follow Him. Believe me … I get “it has not worked.” I really, really do. Have been praying for literally years for God to answer a prayer that has not been answered. Even still … I will follow Him because I follow Him not for what He does but for who He is. He is God. He is perfect and all-powerful. I don’t have the right to call the shots in my life because I gave my life to Him; it is no longer my own. And so, I have no other option than to trust the One who knows me best because He made me. I pray that you will keep pursuing Him and He will be your only option as well.

    1. Awesome response, I feel the same as Barbara, but tonight I choose to no matter what, I will follow him. With tears in my eyes, I will follow him. Thank you Jesus, your Grace is sufficient…

    Oh Victoria – I simply cannot imagine the hurt and pain you experience every single day. I am so very sorry. Father, only You understand the depth of Victoria’s desperation. We call out to you, Lord, to come and bring comfort, strength, and hope. Fill Victoria with the peace that can only come from the One who understands her completely and knows the depth of her pain. In Jesus’ Name Amen

    I am so glad it was a comfort to you, Catherine!

  4. Lynn Cowell says:

    Father, Martha needs You to intervene as her provider. Help her to see where you are working on her behalf and where and how she can partner with You there. Continue to deepen her dependence upon and do what only you can do, Jesus. Amen

  5. Bren Rush says:

    Prayers are seed. They need time to germinate. Sometimes we think they will never come up and indeed, we may not be the ones who will witness their full bloom. But, we can be sure our faithful plantings will emerge in God’s perfect timing and within His perfect plan. We do not have to understand what the Gardener is doing to plant the seed.

      Thank you so much for this encouraging word!

  6. Lynn Cowell says:

    Thank you so much for sharing your reality with us, Amanda. It is so true … some days we sense His help and strength and other days … not so much. Thank you, Jesus, for your Word so that we have something to cling to when our emotions don’t hold us up!

    Hi Lynn,
    Thank you for such a timely message. This line in your devotional really struck me….Instead, He promised to take His step after they took theirs. Great insight! Faith without sight!!

    I have followed your writing for a few years and have also been involved in Proverbs 31. I look forward to reading more and learning from you.

      Jody – thank you so much for sharing! I love that line too … LORD help us live it! It can be so very hard to take those first steps.
      Thank you for reading and being a part of P31. I am really grateful for you! Writing has no purpose if there are not those who engage with what we write. 🙂
