iBelieve

I am sitting here catching up on blog reading while my little one naps and I came across the giveaway over at The Mrs. (great giveaway by the way! Aimee from ByAimee is giving away a favicon & signature!) But that's not what caught my eye. The Mrs. has an iBelieve button that caught my eye. I had read her latest one about God's timing but this time it hit me even harder. She reminded me of this verse-


8 “For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
   neither are your ways my ways,”
            declares the LORD.
9 “As the heavens are higher than the earth,
   so are my ways higher than your ways
   and my thoughts than your thoughts.
Isaiah 55

Our plans are not always what God has in mind for us, and believe you me, His way and plans are FAR greater than my own! Sometimes it is just hard to remember. We are "I want it now" people.

After I read that I kept going and followed a link to iBelieve Prayer. This one broke me down! It just hit home for me on how dumb I am sometimes and how busy I let myself get. There is nothing more important than spending time with God, yet why do I go through the motions every day and forget to stop and speak to Him.

This is the part that moved me and had me crying


"Last night I couldn’t sleep, so I prayed. I prayed over every single thing that popped in my head. Everything. Even for my puppies. I prayed for someone random who popped into my head that apparently needed some prayer. I prayed for loved ones. I prayed for those who were sick. I prayed for my preacher. I laid my hands on my husband and prayed for him.
Then I stopped. I listened. 

“It’s good to hear from you, daughter. I’ve missed you. Let me hold you and comfort you for a little while.”

I began to cry… and pray… and sing praises. It was a really great worship service, I tell ya.
.....
I’ve missed Him.
He’s missed me.

I’m coming back to you, Jesus. Forgive your child for being… dumb?
I love you Jesus. Use me."


God is so amazing, and He loves us so much! 

"For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." – Jeremiah 29:11

He wants nothing more than to spend time with us and to bless us! 


I am so grateful and thankful for women like Megan that allow God to use them! Thank you Megan for this reminder! I truly believe God loves us more than we will even know and He wants wants best for us- Always!

  1. You are too sweet!! I really needed to be reminded of ALL OF THIS! I'm crying, too! Remembering that sweet night I had with my savior! Those moments are too rare for my liking. It's only because I sometimes get caught up in things of this world... even Godly miracles like my growing baby inside of me, but GOD is first. We must always remember that. I'm so glad He spoke to you today! I haven't had an iBelieve post in a while. Maybe you could guest post?
