Wake Up Call



Have you ever got plain frustrated when you go through something hard in life and wind up going through it yet again? Last night I was laying in bed in tears. I knew I wasn't supposed to ask God why. As I was praying I said "...God I dont understand why.... I always wind up hurt Why do I have to keep going through this?" He said "How are you gonna be praised if you don't?" Right then I knew he was talking about the verse I studied just this week.
Proverbs 31:31 Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.

You talk about a wake up call. I laid there for a while thanking God. I should have known he had a plan. I was just to busy worrying about myself to think straight. So.....

Thank you Lord
Day 1 For sending your Son to die on the Cross for me
Day 2 For my kids whom I love dearly
Day 3 For my sweet husband
Day 4 For your gentle corrections
Day 5 For giving me a wonderful home

  1. It can be so tough when our hearts are heavy. We can feel alone and discouraged. Growth hurts, but in the long run, it is so worth it. Praying for you by dear sister in Christ. xoxo

  2. Hi Amanda, As I read your post I was thinking that I am not the only one feeling confused. I do not understand why I feeling the way I am. After reading your post I can see now there is a reason why I am going through the pain of being alone God has his reasons...


  3. Hey Darlene, Nobody is alone. We have God. We all have our why moments in life. We just have to trust God because he is the only one who knows our future. I look at it this way I would rather trust God than to keep making mistakes and such in life.

  4. Love, hugs, prayers, and blessings to you.
