Hey there Bible Challenge Readers! It’s Friday once again. I’m going to just go ahead and tell you that I’m a few chapters behind in the reading, because confession is good for the soul. But I’ll catch up soon enough, by God’s grace. So if you can check in today and help us keep each other to stay encouraged to continue reading God’s Word, that would be great!
The fabulous Scripture tea post is still kicking from yesterday as part of Karen Ehman’s Vintage Week. How fun to participate and if you’ve missed out, my giveaway is going to be open through Monday, Sept. 2nd, so be sure to check out everything going on at Karen’s and be sure to check out yesterday’s post.
We’ve been in a heavy season of change around the Woj house for about the last month. The children are all growing so quickly and between my oldest, Tiffany, getting married, the baby bed being replaced with a toddler bed (can’t believe there is no baby bed up in this house after almost 12 years of having one), my Tristina decided to get her long hair cut short (she grew up overnight!), and school starting (Our family has 5 schools being attended this year besides the two little ones doing homeschool preschool), wow, do I ever need this prayer!
Guessing you might need it too. So I wanted to share. Be blessed!
A Prayer for a Season of Change
Dear Heavenly Father,
Just when we settle into a pattern,
things change far too quickly.
One door opens; another closes.
We rise, we eat, we sleep.
We smile, we laugh, we cry.
Change itself is ever changing and
Lord, if I’m truthful, I don’t like change.
Because I desire the control.
Will you forgive my lack of understanding
that Your creation of seasons is exquisite?
Would you remind me that the ebb and flow of life
is rippled by the gifts of love and laughter?
And that life is measured by memories, not minutes?
May the season of change fuel me forward
to another beautiful season of
the blessing of Your Almighty hand.
In Jesus’ name,
