Saturday's Song: Glorious Unfolding Part 3
In my last post we read about learning and praying the promise of God. I bet many of you pray them over your loved ones' lives, but do you pray them over your own life? I know I struggle to pray for myself, but I'm working on that.
In his book, Prayer of Jabez, Bruce Wilkinson writes about a man who eavesdropped on the prayers of a man he deeply respected, a man of great faith. Guess who this amazing man prayed for first?
Himself. Yup. Himself.
Friends, we are worth praying for - first. How can we comfort others if we are running on empty?
I've never really looked at praying for myself this way, but how can I give comfort, if I've not received comfort from God Himself? Sure, I know others pray for me and He responds to my needs, but how much more will I be comforted if I pray for myself? If I pray for those needs only my heart knows, how much more will God work in my life?
Imagine how the amount of comfort I receive from Him will spill over to others?
God's plan from the startFor this world and your heartHas been to show His glory and His graceForever revealing the depth and the beauty ofHis unfailing loveAnd the story has only begunAnd this is going to be a glorious unfoldingJust you wait and see and you will be amazedWe've just got to believe the story is so far from overSo hold on to every promise God has made to usAnd watch this glorious unfolding

There were no real changes in my fabric stash. I'm binding a pretty big quilt, so that should help my numbers for next week. Maybe I'll even end up in the black!
Pip and I continue to keep each other company. I'm surprised how much I enjoy listening to this wonderful classic.
I recently picked up several of Betty Hechtman's books. Hooked on Murder is the first book in her A Crochet Mystery series. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it! I'm sure Dead Men Don't Crochet will not disappoint!
