Stand

Pray
you never stand taller than when you are on your knees

Yesterday I bought a framed art with this quote in it. I declared it our family quote for the year. We must pray. We can try to make decisions and plan our lives and that is all good. I think the Lord expects us to plan and think ahead. But unless we pray and ask Him where He plans for us to go, what He plans for us to do, what He plans for us to not to do, we cannot be prepared for what comes our way. If we pray, when the trials and temptations come that try to hinder us as we are following Him, it is then that we can stand tall. "Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand." Ephesians 6:13 That's what we have to do to say we have truly planned. Truly prepared. When we can say we have done all, it is because we have prayed.

Just found your blog, and I'll be back to visit! ;-) I loved your Christmas decorations, especially the centerpiece that contained three candles with JOY spelled on them. Very classy!
