A Fragrant Aroma: Thank You

This has been a difficult week.  I’ve shared some of it with you.

As I was making our bed yesterday I realized I didn’t feel as sad and weighed down.  I thought to myself, Maybe today will be better…when I heard a familiar – still, small Voice gently say, You know the reason you feel better is because I have people praying for you.

I can’t tell you how this statement affected me.  To realize there were close friends, faraway friends and even people I barely know through our blog praying for ME!  My heart could not contain the thought.  I was humbled and blessed and most of all GRATEFUL to God first, and then, to you.  Thank you.  With all that is within me, thank you!  I have been helped because of your prayers, and now I can glorify God for what you have done.

This is the church doing what it was made to do – may God return the blessing on you, my dear friends.

How can we pray for you today?

  1. Hi! I am so glad you are feeling better. I would appreciate any prayers that come my way. If you read my blog, it’s just an itty blog that I write for my son, you will know that I am the bread winner of my home. The company I have worked for the past 6 years is about to close (due to acquisitions) and I will most assurably be left without a job. I need prayers that will give my husband and I peace and not fall into endless bickering. I need prayers to help me have faith in the our Lord. I need to keep faith in that and not despear. I need prayers for fortitude and resolution that God will not leave me in my time of need. Thank you.

    One thing I can say for certain is God will never leave you, nor forsake you – this is a promise. Hebrews 13:5 says, “Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have, for he has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”

    Father, I pray for Ivonne this morning. Would you comfort her today and make her aware of your nearness? And I ask for your guidance and peace as she is waiting to see the job you have in store for her next. Help her to walk by faith, not sight. And may she find joy in unexpected places.
    In Jesus’ precious name,

    I would love prayers of reconciliaton for me and my sister. She said some very mean things about me to my husband and has yet to apologize. It has been a year and a half and she has not ‘spoken’ to me about it and her husband won’t either. I miss a sister. I miss lunches out, times of quilting and sharing. But she broke my heart, deeply and wounded our relationship to the core. I don’t know how to have a relationship with her when ‘she feels’ she did nothing wrong. My husband lost his mom last year (a day before mothers day) and I lost my sister and her husband the same year.
    It has been a deep grief for both of us. Praying for you I love your blog take care and rest when you can, it restores our souls.

      Dear Sharon,
      There is nothing worse than a broken relationship. It grieves the soul in a way nothing else can. I will pray for you. God has forgiven us so much, I know He will help you forgive your sister.
