This morning I burned the kids’ toast. Never one to be defeated by a situation, I stood over the kitchen sink and scraped off the burnt places. I smiled at being able to salvage the situation.
Taking burnt toast and making something good from it is pretty much a theme in my life.
I like seeing the bright spot.
I like intentionally looking for the good in all situations.
I like being positive.
But there is a time to set down all the positivity and just simply ask your girlfriends for prayer.
A week ago Friday I had to have emergency surgery on my ears. And while the pain is gone, there’s a really loud constant ringing in my left ear that hasn’t stopped. It’s now been two weeks with this awful ringing and while I’m trying to be brave, I’m feeling super weary.
And I’m having a hard time hearing. A really hard time.
When the doctor tested my hearing last week it wasn’t good.
Please pray for me. I really need the Lord to miraculously touch my ears.
And please pray for me to be able to concentrate.
When I’m supposed to hear something, I just want to hear it. And when there is supposed to be silence, I just want there to be no ringing.
These things are such gifts I have taken for granted.
God forgive me for taking so much for granted.
Thank you sweet friends. I really appreciate your whispers to God on my behalf. I need them. And I will certainly be praying for you today as well.
God treasures the prayers of His girls. Psalm 141: 2 (Message) says, “Treat my prayer as sweet incense rising; my raised hands are my evening prayers.”
Oh that we might fill the heavens with the sweet aroma of our prayers today. Which is a whole lot better smelling than burnt toast.
