Most often we talk to God when we are in need. When we have wants and desires. Wait, maybe I should just say, me. I pray the most when I need Him. I need something today God can you take care of this for me? Sometimes, I ask him for little things but most of the time it’s huge. I’ve been feeling that he takes care of me in ways that I don’t ask for and I forget to say thanks.
I have to say thanks for all the wonderful opportunities He allows me to have. He watches over my children, my family and even allows me time to blog. I know that as I spend more time with Him it has increased. As with everything in my life, I’m not perfect and do not give Him enough. That’s another thing I’m working on. It’s one reason that I’m writing my post. You guys help me to stay accountable in so many different ways.
Praise the Lord!
Praise God in his sanctuary;
praise him in his mighty heavens!
Praise him for his mighty deeds;
praise him according to his excellent greatness!
Praise him with trumpet sound;
praise him with lute and harp!
Praise him with tambourine and dance;
praise him with strings and pipe!
Praise him with sounding cymbals;
praise him with loud clashing cymbals!
Let everything that has breath praise the Lord!
Praise the Lord
I want to thank all of my readers too though. You guys have been awesome with me over the past year and a half and I’m just now discovering the value of community and creating my own. I need to thank all of you for hanging in there with me and being there for me when I hardly ever give back. That’s why I really want to come up with more ways to interact with my readers. When I saw that one of my most commented posts was a request for prayer, that just told me that I need to be more open about my life, needs and belief in God. God did that through all of you!
I don’t consider myself one of the “top bloggers” but I do have a lot of volume and traffic and I’ve never been even decent at responding to comments or e-mails. That’s going to change. I’m going to work really hard to build better relationships with you guys (but expect it in baby steps, I don’t want to make any promises I can’t keep). By responding to e-mails, and comments over e-mail. Not just returning the visit to your blog. I hope that I can then find when you need me to return the prayers.
Thank you God for my wonderful readers, and Thank you all for coming back again and again.
