Ye Have Not

I'm so Blessed to still have her.
"Ye have not...Matt 7:7. Growing up, I remember thinking this verse was a bunch of biblical hooey, because I didn't get the Nikes, Jordache, or Izod shirt I requested, and believe you me, I asked. I now know, I was asking for the wrong thing. Today, I have all those things and so much more. That verse was specifically admonishing us to ask for the right thing, and it will be given to us. Kingdom Key to life #7 is, "Asking for the right thing". It isn't as simple as just praying.

Merrill's gone, so the back door is booby trapped. As I lie awake in bed last night, I realized that the, "Lord keep me safe" prayer might not be what I should be praying because it might be slightly unrealistic. After all, what is safe? Is it NO problems, no worries, or is it total complete protection? So, I thought "Lord, help me to OVERCOME, and work through, anything that may happen...this evening". This is a fallen world of Sin, there is NO way, you're walking out without a limp, but you CAN walk out. Because of Eve...ahem...SIN, you'll find that God had to tweek the blessing from us NOT pricking our finger, to pricking our finger, but still living. (Sleeping Beauty reference, I have a toddler remember). We are going to hurt, but in that hurt we'll find strength, like I did two years ago tomorrow. My new prayer is now, "Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of Death, I pray you help me go Kung Fu on those who seek to hurt me".

"Mom, can I have chocolate milk?". Ask that question in this house, and you'll probably get a no, but reframe to, "Mom, can I have chocolate milk, after dinner?" and I'm more likely to say, "Yes". Knowing what to ask for, is just as important as asking. My prayer for you today is that you don't avoid the trials, but to walk THROUGH trials like a BOSS. Tomorrow is a terrible day in history for us, and I just want to thank the Facebook App for bringing that back up to us.Well, I have the Jordache now, think I'll ask for Home Peace. With Duchess, that's a very real prayer. Be Blessed. Remember you set the Tone, you ARE the Example. BE KIND to each other. Show GRACE and MERCY to all those who cross your path today. With your Daily Affirmations complete, enjoy your Tuesday.
