Sonidos Serranos

Sonidos Serranos: Sounds of the Sierras...
Reflecting some of my family's interests: God's wonderful creation (especially mountains and hills!), music, and language...

Psalm 121:1-2 (NASB)

I will lift up my eyes to the mountains;
From where shall my help come?
My help comes from the LORD,
Who made heaven and earth.

Praying, believing...

A friend posted on FaceBook the following thought-provoking perspective on prayer:

"This is the day that the LORD hath made..." That same God that created our day, our life, our world can certainly take care of us. How amazing of a testimony would it be to everyone who knows him, if our prayers were answered! I know all of us have prayed that prayer at one point, but how many of us prayed this morning expecting God to answer!

We start out fervent, then we doubt a little, and prayers become like half court shots. We shoot them, we have seen other people make them, we know it's possible that it might go in, but we don't actually expect it to. It just seems too far away! My point is God doesn't get glory from us when we treat HIM like he doesn't care. I think most of us don't do it on purpose, it just seems to happen when we pray over and over for the same thing.

My challenge to all who read this is: Please pray for God to reach down and touch Jona today and bring him peace and healing. He will do it! Believe it. Allow this boy's life to change yours.

I'm still praying! Thanks for this thought. Jona's life has been such a blessing to me.

I have had Jona and your family on my mind and in my prayers all day. Our GOD is a very capable, faithful, and righteous God. I trust that he will touch Jona and give him strength, courage, and healing.

Keep Looking Up!
