{ My pity pot }

Do any of you ever sit down on your pity pot and feel sorry for yourself and refuse to get off because things just continually seem to go wrong?  Well, I'm gonna be honest here and just admit that I've been sitting on mine a bit recently because of.....
well, things that really don't amount to a hill of beans compared to what others are going through.
I have some friends at church who are TRULY struggling with health issues which include dialysis, waiting on a new kidney and possible loss of eye sight due to glaucoma and diabetes.  Then, I get this e-mail requesting prayer because somebody has been given just a short amount of time to live.  I cannot even imagine what she and her family are going through.  I mean I cried when I read the e-mail and had chills and also felt immense conviction for being so prideful and self-absorbed for the trivial things I waste time worrying about.  I also realized that it was simply Satan who put me on that pot and was keeping me there.  

Please pray for these friends who are in such desperate need of strength and courage and peace and comfort.


Luke 4:8
And Jesus answered and said unto him, 
Get thee behind me, Satan: 
for it is written, 
Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, 
and him only shalt thou serve.


Breathing in Grace,

  1. God cares about the small (to us) things and the big (to us) things. We can pray for both!
