"Don't wish me happiness I don't expect to be happy all the time....It's gotten beyond that somehow. Wish me courage and strength and a sense of humor. I will need them all." Anne Morrow Lindbergh

Prayer is like a window

With the passing of the years I have learned that the winter season gives the sacred space of quietness. I appreciate this time to nurture the silence within me and prayer is an important part of that process. Recently I felt the specific need to pray for the salvation for my partner who left me when I was five weeks pregnant. Initially I resisted but than I followed the prompting and within two weeks a wondrous change came over me. The bitterness and anger I have unknowingly carried toward's him left me and when it did I realized I had forgiven him. In hindsight I realize the bitterness was telling me I needed to continue to accept the love of Jesus within. I praise God for reaching out to me and healing me! The closer I walk to Him the more he creates in me something beyond self - and gives me more than what I could ever do on my own - Him. May you too continue to grow in love.

  1. There's an amazing peace in the act of forgiveness...although very hard to do, no doubt. I struggle myself. I am glad that you have found some healing, my friend and had the courage to share a private moment. It will inspire others, like myself, I am sure.

    1. Hi Kim It does take time. My daughter will be five years old in two months. I do hope that someone will be encouraged. It is God's way - the way of love and it is the only way to real peace. Thank you for your comment - you said it well. Ronda

  2. I love this post, Ronda. God at work. Beautiful. Hugs, Nancy
