In God Alone

In just a couple of days, we will be casting our vote in the Presidential election.  My heart has been broken as I’ve heard and seen all of the dishonor concerning the candidates and the issues surrounding this election.  Not only are people dishonoring the men who have been appointed for such a time as this, but they are dishonoring one another with their constant bashing back and forth of the issues.  We must remember to bless with our words and not curse.

Set a guard over my mouth, O LORD; keep watch over the door of my lips.

A Friend of God

Today I am linking up with Bonnie for the Faith Barista JAM.  We are sharing what God is revealing to us in our “White Space” (our personal time with Him).

I have been paying attention to how I pray lately.  One thing I notice is that I start many of my conversations with God by addressing Him as “Heavenly Father”.  Now, don’t get me wrong, He deserves that title and respect. But one thing God has been speaking to my heart is that I am often much too formal in my prayers.  He does not require formality or structure from me.  Sure, there is a time
