Isn’t God good? We got some cloudy, murky news yesterday that left me muddled. We don’t have enough information to worry yet. But the mind tends to wander through potential – all of the worse-case scenarios. When I finally got home, I sat thinking, “I need a verse.” But nothing would come to mind. My mind was literally empty. Tabula Rasa. Clean slate.
God didn’t let me flounder long. He reached into the blankness nearly instantly through a text message of an old friend who was praying with us.
6 do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. 7 And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
The lovely wife and I are rallying to get more testing today. We have made our requests known to Him. If you are a praying friend, I covet a word for my littlest, Kylie. She is a little worried and just wants her leg to stop hurting.

Connected and reaching out.
Thanks Paul. We feel the prayer cover.
My prayers are with you.
Thank you. We are on our way to figuring out what’s going on.
My prayers for all the best.
We are all with you and praying intently.
Thanks Katie. I knew you’d be in the gap. Still waiting for answers.
I love The Message translation of this verse: Don’t fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God’s wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It’s wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life.
Prayers going up so the answers can come down.
Thank you, I didn’t look at The Message, but that sounds great. And thanks for the prayers.
Praying for you and your littlest one.
Thank you. She is resting now. More questions than answers, but hopefully getting somewhere.
We are praying!!! Love you, Mom and Dad
Adding my prayers to yours!
Thank you. We feel covered in prayer.
Thanks Mike. I appreciate it greatly
In my years nothing hurts worse than the pain in your children’s eyes. I will be praying.
You are so right. I really appreciate the prayers from IT
Paying her pain stops and you find the cause. Perfect verse for me as well. God IS good. He shouted this to me just as I needed to stop wallowing
Thank you, we are on the road to finding out. A few more tests to go.
All my prayers for Kylie as well as you Mark and the whole family. 🙂
Thank you Art. We feel them.
Praying for you all from Colossians 1:11 “that you’ll be strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, to all patience and long-suffering with joyfulness.”
When my life goes on tilt I cling to Ps. 138:8 The LORD will perfect that which concerns me:)
Thank you so much, no answers today. Patience for a few more days required.
my positive thoughts are with you all )
Thanks Beth, it’s been a long day full of questions and not enough answers. I could use positive!
Psalm 118 focuses on the goodness and mercy of God. Psalm 118:8 is the exact center of the bible. Keeping your family in my prayers too.
Thank you. I’m turning there now.
I understand. Last week I flew to Phoenix, my oldest (25 years old) required a pacemaker. Shock was the most difficult thing to deal with. Coming out on the other side, I see God’s hand all over the situation. He is faithful. Start praising him for His goodness even if you are in the waiting. I’m sending praise reports to my whole prayer group.
That is great. I wish we would get to the other side quickly.
Oh Mark, I’m so sorry to hear about this. You definitely have my prayers, my friend.
Thank you Staci. Still in limbo, but she’s resting now.
Mark, I’m adding you and Kylie immediately to my prayer list. In prayer for wisdom for the medical team, for answers to be revealed and confirmation to be found. Be at peace.
Thank you so much. We are on hold for a short time, but will get to the bottom of this.
I will be praying, Mark. God is so good that He provide such a gift of comfort. No matter what happens, He will not leave you throughout. ((Hugs))
Thank you very much. We are clinging to that.
Praying you will be covered and wrapped in peace.
Thank you! She got to go to her cousin’s wedding tonight, so that was a big answer to prayer.
