What Helps Me with Worry and Anxiety

You’re watching a ball role down a hill from the side. It’s a snowball and it’s tumbling down down down.

It’s not only tumbling down, it’s getting bigger and bigger as you descend down the hill watching this snowball not only increases in mass, but also in speed and momentum.

God shapes the world by prayer. Prayers are deathless. The lips that uttered them may be closed to death, the heart that felt them may have ceased to beat, but the prayers live before God, and God’s heart is set on them and prayers outlive the lives of those who uttered them; they outlive a generation, outlive an age, outlive a world.
– E.M. Bounds

This is a prayer for my friend Stephanie who would like clarity around a decision to possibly move in June. Why she would ever move back to the frozen tundra of Maine is beyond me, but then as a parent I totally get the need to be near a child!

Blessings to you friend!

This past week my friend Keith’s dad went unexpectedly to the Emergency Room and needed surgery. As of this writing, he’s doing well. My prayer for him was late last week and I wanted to make sure Keith was okay with me posting my first intercessory prayer online here.

 

My Blog Lives

I have been spending a number of months wondering what’s next for my blog. I have, since then, rediscovered my life’s mission and that informs what I will do with this site.

 

I will at least begin by saying my life’s mission is:

To be with and help broken people.

 

And that, going forward will flavor all I write and say here.
