Some days I wake up wondering if my prayers will ever be answered. I have doubts and fears about my future and what God has planned for me. I think that He doesn’t hear me when I pray and that my prayers are too insignificant for Him. He has trillions of prayers to answer every second. Why would He listen to me?

Doubt is a terrible thing, because it creeps into your every waking moment and infects your heart more than any known disease man has ever known. The devil would like us to believe that God doesn’t exist and that we are in charge of our own destiny. He loves it when one of God’s children loses faith and starts to rely on himself. We must be on guard every moment. When those days of doubt come, I pray that the Holy Spirit will give me peace in the knowledge that God is listening, and He will answer my prayers in His way and on his timeline. Even though I may not realize it, He has already answered them before I open my mouth to pray.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
    and do not lean on your own understanding.
 In all your ways acknowledge him,
    and he will make straight your paths.
Be not wise in your own eyes;
    fear the Lord, and turn away from evil. It will be healing to your flesh
    and refreshment to your bones. Proverbs 3:5-8



As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on
