My Giant Isn't So Big Anymore

For any of you who prayed for me yesterday, THANK YOU.

God gave me the courage to face my Giant. In the end, the Giant wasn't as big as I thought it was going to be. I think my Giant shrank a little bit last night. This is a huge answer to prayer. There is still work to be done in my situation, but I'm relieved with where everything stands at the moment.

This is today's quote from my day-to-day quote booklet:

"You're blessed when you're at the end of your rope. With less of you there is more of God and His rule. You're blessed when you feel you've lost what is most dear to you. Only then can you be embraced by the One most dear to you."
Matthew 5:3-4, THE MESSAGE

I'm sorry I missed this yesterday when you asked for prayer.

I'm glad your prayers were answered.

Blessings,

Matthew 5- thanks for sharing this from the Message...it was good to read and good to hear. My heart has been very heavy lately, as our adoption to Guatemala seems to be going belly up...I had to suppress tears in church today...at one point I couldn't even sing-as I thought I'd just begin sobbing.
Good to be reminded that God is so much bigger and that He has got it all in his hands (though we don't always see). Less of me and more of Him is a much better idea..lately it feels as if there isn't much of "me" left...but not that I am feeling bigger with God either.

Glad that God answered your prayer..it is never vague to Him! (Praise God)
