Join The Club



















Do you ever feel like you are climbing a slippery slope when trying desperately to help the people you love the most?

Do you feel as though the harder you try, the more desperate the situation?

Do you ever feel......."If only I could say the one right thing to get through to them?"

Well, prayer warriors and friends, JOIN THE CLUB! I am here today to share wise words from a human I dearly love and respect. After watching me anguish over a situation, my husband, Doug said, "You realize you can NOT fix this....only GOD can!"

My response: "My head knows, my heart is trying to catch up!"

Has the situation changed? NO!

Have I changed? YES!

I am in a moment by moment surrender mode! Yes, "moment by moment!" That's all I can manage. So, today when you struggle with similar situations, know there is another human out there taking deep breaths each moment as she fully surrenders her concerns to the Lord.

"Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you." 1 Peter 5:7 NLT

By HIS mercy and in the grip of HIS grace,

Andrea Bowling Perdue

Yes Andrea,
Your post is so true. I know some where God has worked mightily in their lives, and they've turned and made a complete aboutface.
And some that so far, have not made that aboutface. For those, I still pray, but, I cannot let them drag me down with them. God gives each person their own life, and another should not be able to steal your happiness. Blessings.

Moment by moment. Powerfule. Sometimes that's the only way it would every happen. Moment by moment. . . easier to swallow!

It's quite frustrating but at the same time brings us to reality how limited we truly are. I'm grateful that there is help from Him and He always reminds us that we are truly nothing apart from Him. I'll join you...in dealing with things day to day. I love Jesus' reminder that we have enough for the day. Worrying will not even add another day into our lives. May we always be strong in His power!!! Take care sister!

I have walked where you are walking. It took me a long time to realize two things. 1)I couldn't do anything about these circumstances. 2) God would, in His own time and in His own way.
