  1. “she talks about being faithful in prayer by allowing God to enter and become part of your circumstances instead of trying to fix it yourself. She references to 2 Chronicles 20:12 – “We do not know what to do, but our eyes are on you.” This verse describes perfectly where our focus should be as we struggle with the questions on our hunt for all the answers. ”

    This right here struck my heart. This is like, sit with this during devotional time stuff for me. I am a fixer. I am a doer. I am not a let-someone-else–handle-it-er….yes, even if that someone is God. I’m getting better, but not where I want to be with my yieldedness. I’ve learned for so many years I have to do it myself or it won’t get done. I have to find the solution or it won’t be found. I’m responsible for it all – but I’m having to unlearn that and trust God in new ways. Thank you for this!

    • So glad you stopped by! Letting someone else enter our messy and then trusting them to fix it-whew! I know what you mean! It is so hard but amazing when we learn that God is in charge and He loves us so much and wants to help fix our messy! Blessings to you!

    • Heather- thank you so much! I love how God is our answer and if we would just stop and remember that when the questions are hard, our lives would be so much easier. Blessed by your presence and encouragement!

  2. Some days I walk through the day just repeating, “All eyes are on you, Lord; all eyes are on you.” He is our hope, our strength, our answer to every question. Mary, this is a beautiful post. So grateful to you and to Barbie for sharing it with us today!
