God's Provision








































This bowl carved out of rock is known to be Pocahontas's water basin. It is located in a park in Petersburg, Virginia. As I stood by this basin, I pondered GODS provision and the beauty of it. He always supplies our needs and HE meets us in the depths of our despair. Lately, I am facing serious battles in my life. Yet, at the end of the day, I know my Heavenly Father loves me. I am "not" alone. HE has a perfect plan. I share this with each of you, today, apologizing for not posting and for not visiting with you. I miss each of you, but I trust you understand and will storm the heavens on my behalf. I am blessed to have each of you in my life, as I am blessed to have prayer warrior friends locally, as well. Thank you for your prayers!

Clinging tightly to my Heavenly Father,

Andrea

Some days all we can do is cling tightly to our Heavenly Father. No need to apologize! Sometimes, we just can't do things because of other circumstances. Praying for you and God's provisions.

Dear Andrea! I am praying for you and yours. Praying God's strength and love wraps around you tightly.

You have always been such a wonderful source of encouragement to me. I'm so glad God made our paths cross. I haven't been blogging as much lately because other things have taken priority, so sorry I haven't visited in awhile.

Ozjane said...

Father God, I lift Andrea and all that concerns her into Your arms of love..we would join together to pray for her your perfect peace, the power of the name of Jesus, the Mercy and grace that flows from Your throne, the forgiveness purchased for her, so freely given and so give able to others in Your strength. You have promised to supply her needs so whatever these are we lift them to the mercy seat.
We would ask for a guard over her mind and claim for her, the mind of Christ, and for all those with whom she interacts we ask the blessings needed in their lives and grace, peace and growth in mutual relationships. We thank You that You hear our prayer and that Your answer our prayers in the precious name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Julie said...

Andrea,
I appreciated your last words at my blog a couple of weeks back. I too have been watching an adult child with some decisions... It's so hard to watch. Her wedding was cancelled 3 weeks ago and she's been so broken. I wish i could get her to that place in the Father's embrace that is so familiar to me...

Life's been pretty crazy around here and I haven't been able to visit many blogs lately. I'm glad I was able to stop by today. I pray you are finding the Father's embrace in your life's circumstances...
