I posted before a link to a friend I knew in college who recently lost her child. About a month ago another friend from college lost her husband after only being married a little over two years. Both of these women have been inspirations to me in their times of suffering. What I am learning from their struggle to keep the faith and pursue God in the midst of hurt has been convicting, encouraging, and has brought me closer to the Lord. Their testimonies are nothing shy of God’s wonderful grace transforming lives for His glory, and even though we don’t understand, for their good.
Here is a link to Ami’s post regarding her struggle with her loss and her amazing walk with her God.
In this “pinterest” driven life I found this article very comforting, rebuking and exactly what I needed to hear. Take a minute as a mom and read.
Motherhood for the Rest of Us
As I get my heart ready for Prayer Meeting tonight I cannot get this song, “My Wordless Prayer” by Craig Courtney out of my head. I hope you allow the beauty of the words to reach deep into your soul and drive you to spend time in the throne room of God today during your quiet time and during your Prayer Meeting.
If you want to hear the song set to beautiful images please click on the link above.
My Wordless Prayer
My words lie still and lifeless as dust upon the sand, I can no longer voice one request or one demand. My cup of tears is empty, I can no longer cry, my lips have fallen silent, my prayer is but a sigh. Spirit, come and rest Your ear upon my heart, O come and hear my wordless prayer, my silent plea and take them far away from me. Take them from this ear of mine to the Father’s heart divine. Speak in tones unknown to man that God may hear and understand. My voice is weak from calling to You both night and day. How long will You be silent? Why do You turn away?
Spirit, come and rest Your ear upon my heart, O come and hear my wordless prayer, my silent plea and take them far away from me. Take them from this ear of mine to the Father’s heart divine. Speak in tones unknown to man that God may hear and understand.
