Devotional



For Today...

Dear Lord,

I bring you my shortcomings... that I need to learn patience, even though it seems so very hard for me. I know that your time is not our time and for that I am thankful. I need to be more forgiving, not as critical and judgmental.

I bring you my worship and praise... I want to thank you for coming to this world to save me. You did not have to do that . . . yet you chose to. I praise you for knowing my thoughts before I form them.

I bring you my prayer... I thank you for answering prayer for me concerning my job - you are so AWESOME! I pray that your truth will spread throughout this nation, this world.

You spoke to me... in the pages of a book I read - The Happening - about the Nickel Mines School

Congrats on the job, Raquel! Also, I can so relate to needing patience and being less critical and judgemental...I struggle w/ these as well and am constantly asking the Lord for help in these areas!

Hi Raquel~
Thanks for visiting my blog and I'm so glad you signed up for the GIVEWAWAY~

I noticed you live in Missouri. We live in Iowa. We're about 1/2 hr from the border of MO :-)

And yes I love reading Eye of Wonder. Sooo encouraging~

Btw, my mom's name is Raquel. She always had people mispronouncing it and saying raw-kwel.
