The One Prayer God Always Answers

“Ask and it shall be given to you; Seek and you will find; Knock and the door shall be open unto you.” (Matthew 7:7)

God answers prayers. It’s true. Sometimes the answers are not what we had hoped for, but no prayer goes unanswered. Sometimes we ask for things that are not God’s will for our lives. I have found, though, that the one thing we can ask for that He will always give us, is more of Him. When we sincerely ask Him to reveal who He is and who we are in Him, He does it.

That’s where I’ve been this past week. It all started with the church service last Sunday and something Brenda said to me after she had prayed with me. She asked me if I believed that I deserved to have God heal my eyes. I had to be honest and say, “No.” Do I believe that God heals? Sure. Do I think He heals other people? Absolutely. Do I believe that I deserve it? No. How could I deserve it? And then Brenda says, “You’re His baby girl. He WANTS you to see!” Oh boy. Insert awkward feeling here. It was at this moment that I realized, somewhat ashamedly, that my relationship with God was lacking. Right then I started praying for God to show me who He was and who I am to Him, and I continued to pray that throughout this past week. He has answered it over and over again.

If you want to know who you are in God, just ask Him. He’ll be happy to show you how much He loves you, too!

“Can a woman forget her nursing child,  And not have compassion on the son of her womb?  Surely they may forget, Yet I will not forget you. See, I have inscribed you on the palms of My hands;” (Isaiah 49:15-16 NKJV)


Ah, the Android App

*Deep sigh*
When I saw the “Download the Android App” button on the mobile site, I just had to click on it. I do that a lot. Sometimes I keep them and use them, sometimes I do not, but I very nearly always click the button.

I have been pleasantly surprised by some apps. I love the Pandora app. There’s an audiobook app that will read to me when my eyes need a rest. Kindle has an Android app. Oh, and I can’t forget the Blacklist app that allows me to block annoying calls like the one I get from the collection agency looking for someone I’ve never even heard of. My local news station has an app. TV Guide has an app. Seems there’s an app for everything. Android has taken over my life.

Is the Android network helpful? Absolutely. Are the apps fun? Most definitely, especially the Facebook app. Can you live without them? Probably, but who wants to try? What fun would that be?

Well, I want to. I think it might be fun to live in the real world instead of the Android one for a while. I’m tired of typing on my phone. My eyes are tired of focusing on tiny print. It’s a little silly when I try to use my computer or camera as a touchscreen. These are just a few reasons I’m ready to trade in my phone for something simpler (and cheaper). Maybe I will wait until all the snow is gone though. I’d be really bored without all these apps.

On a separate note, am I the only one who would punch the contestant next to me on the Price is Right if they bid $1 over me? Seriously…use your own brain.

I have always wanted to say that. I have no reason for saying it, except that I have always wanted to. It is my blog, I will do what I want.

If you read my “about me” then you know that I have writer’s block. It’s true. I’ve had it for several years now. Recently, however, I have gone bloody blogging mad by signing up for more blogs than I can probably keep up with. Why? Why else…to shock my system into writing again. It’s cheap therapy.

That’s all for now. It is almost 3am, after all.
