I Need Your Help

I'll be honest...I'm going through a really hard time right now and I can't do it alone. I need the prayers of other believers. Just when I thought I couldn't get any busier God throws a book in there. Yes, that's what I've been hinting at the last few posts. It seems that God wants me to write a novel; he wants to accomplish the impossible in me. I cannot do it, but He can do it through me. Along with that, I'm going through a lot of inner struggles that I really don't know how to deal with. I'm slowly seeing that it all ultimately boils down to my own pride and selfishness. Pray that it may be crushed and replaced with a spirit of humility, meekness, and love. Pray that I may lean on Jesus and know I can't do it on my own. Pray that if God wants me to write this book, that He would provide the time and would show me what to write and reveal Himself to me. I'm really learning to do hard things; getting out of my comfort zone, pursuing excellence rather than excuses, doing things that don't immediately pay off...

"Great faith is the product of great fights. Great testimonies are the outcome of great tests. Great triumphs can only come out of great trials."
-Smith Wigglesworth

I trust that God wants to show Himself strong through my weaknesses and that this will be a time of growing. So, I have to go because I do have a lot of work to do.

God be with you.


  1. Pray that I would be more faithful to pray for you. I will pray for you.


  2. I always pray for those that pray for me, bless me, encourage me. Thanks Kole.

  4. Yeah! A novel!

    I'll be praying.

  5. This is an encouragement to us as well, as we are convicted of your love for Christ. May God lead you to glorify His name in ways you never thought possible! :)

  6. You know you write well and if you just keep doing that you may one day have a book. I have had the same desires because I love to write. I think keeping a journal is a good start and maybe one day all the things we have learned and wrote about may one day turn into a book that will help others out there. Did you have a particular topic in mind?

    Praying for you.

  7. I'll pray for you. Definitely.


  8. I will keep you in my prayers! It is so hard to be the incompetent instrument God chooses, but I'm learning to trust him.

    BTW, I tagged you for a book meme.

  9. Yes. I'll be praying for you Margaret. You have such a good heart to want to follow the Lord's will for your life. I've been learning about how God can use our weaknesses. It's so neat that we don't have to be perfect. He teaches, guides, and grows us as we go along.
