I really tried to do this… you know… what I said yesterday… “I decided to try to just break the habit and re-train my sleep cycles”… you have already seen my title for this posting... it didn’t work… The Lord has not intervened… so… it hasn’t happened. There are a whole bunch of things that we have asked Him to intervene on.… like… my health… my sleep issues…. especially my breathing… my energy… and my system adapting to the two new medications. But they have not happened… yet. 🙂
Another big one of course is the sale of our house… especially since we get closer and closer to our shutdown on August 15th. When the guests that are in the house now, leave on Wednesday … we have no one checking in again until 8/2… and Philip will only have to cook breakfast 6 more times. So we are praying that He intervenes and wraps something up soon… 🙂
I can’t tell you how often I abused people in my care by quoting this one from James’ letter at them… “You do not have because you do not ask God. 3When you ask, you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, that you may spend what you get on your pleasures.” I am so thankful for His forgiveness and His revelation. Although both these things can be true…. the truth is … that they are never true in the lives of folks who are following Jesus and want what He wants… and we are never asking with wrong motives for the very same reason.
Followers are always asking Him for everything… it is what we do best. He doesn’t give us everything we think we want because He has a plan… and usually it is different than Philip’s plan. This time around is no different… and… He will show me what it is all about whenever He is ready to do that,… and that is just fine with Philip.
Boy… there is sure a lot more I could say about this area…. hmmmmm….
