Wednesday in the Word.

We have to pray with our eyes on God, not on the difficulties. ~Oswald Chambers

Psalm 17:6

6 I call on you, O God, for you will answer me; give ear to me and hear my prayer.

Do you remember my "adopted son" Tim? I shared with you about him here. Well, through a totally unexpected source, I found out that Tim has returned home to Southern California. Did you hear me? He went home. I don't know if he is sober. All I know is that he went home to be closer to his family. And to me, this is a HUGE start. It's also a testimony to the power of prayer. It is PROOF that God answers prayer. He hears our prayers and He answers them.

James 5:15 says...And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise him up.

I continue to pray that the Lord make Tim well. And that He continue to lift Tim up...up out of the muck and the mire.

And...I thank YOU for joining with me in prayer for Tim. I can't find the scripture...but it's something along the lines of "where two or more are gathered"...basically if there is more than one praying for the same thing, He WILL answer our prayers. Thank you for agreeing with me in prayer for Tim. God answered us. Tim is home. I don't know if he's out of the woods yet...so I will continue to pray for him. And I will remember that God DOES answer prayer.
Thank you, God, for listening...for answering...and for taking good care of Tim...and of me.

I will email you in a bit. Got to get a few things done.

I do remember something else Oswald Chambers once said that stuck out to me:

Make it your habit to have no habits
