The value of persistent prayer is not that God will hear us, but that we will finally hear God.
I found this quote so intriguing. So many times I am bringing my requests to God with a particular path for getting my request accomplished already worked out in my head. (And a particular time table for the answering of said prayer, too!)
While I am bringing my petitions to Him, I'm not completely relying on Him...I just want Him to do it my way. Even though from my view my way might seem best...God has a much more complete(and perfect) view. So often, things don't work out the way I hoped and it can make me stressed or frazzled. However, things always seem to work themselves out in a way that was better than I could have imagined!
I guess those times are just a reminder that God is much better at His job than I am!
My 'Living in the Moment' moments today...working together to get the house (reasonably) neat, enjoying the sunshine and last of the warm, summer-like weather at the park, enjoying my extra clingy baby even though I had to clean with one hand, and laughing at my 3 year old reluctant potty trainer's comment at the grocery store.....
Luke was sitting in Jay's carriage talking about how the box of diapers were his. I told Luke that he needed to use the potty and be a good boy and sit properly in the cart. Luke banged on the diaper box and said, "No, I need my diapers and you be a good mommy." Oh, brother! Hopefully he will be using the potty by the time he's ready for middle school!
