Looking Back…

As I grow older, I’m able to look back and see how God answered my prayers in ways only He could. I’m also able to see times when I had drifted away from prayer and how that affected me - my attitudes, actions and abilities. I can see the fragility of my own heart.

I remember when I believed so strongly in my own strength and abilities that I faced things without prayer - even though I had a great relationship with the Lord, I figured He made me strong so I could handle this on my own. Then I discovered that He was the source of that strength and it didn’t work so well when I was trying to be independent.

Learning to be dependent on God and to trust the gifts and callings He has put in me is a lesson learned in daily prayer - in my friendship with my Lord. I pray that I will fulfill my purpose like David did, “For David, after he had served the purpose of God in his own generation, fell asleep and was laid with his fathers,” Acts‬ ‭13:36‬ - unlike David, I am redeemed and though my body will die, I will live eternally with the Lord.
