Yesterday I told you about the October Challenge going on at Women Living Well.
The first requirement was to light a candle each day, place it in a room that you go in frequently and each time you pass it, pray for peace over your family.
Yesterday I put it on the diningroom table, which is directly in the center of our house.
Today, it's burning on the stove, so I can enjoy it while I work in the kitchen.
Not only does the sight of it remind me to pray, but the aroma of it is a reminder as well.
Whether you take part in this challenge or not; whether you buy a candle and use it as a reminder or not.......these things don't matter. It's the praying-for-your-family part that makes all the difference.
Pray for there to be peace in your home - for you and your spouse, your kids, your household.
Pray for God's hedge of protection to surround you and keep you from evil.
Pray that, like this candle, the light of Christ would shine through you, wherever you go today.
Pray for whatever you are struggling with today, to be nothing compared to the blessings you have because you're walking with Him.
Most of all........just PRAY!
Talk to Jesus and be blessed today. That's it. Nothing more. Nothing less. Nothing fancy. Nothing haughty. Nothing that education bought. Nothing that shame can stop.
Just YOU, Jesus, your heart and his. Communicating.
You can do it.
And He will hear you.
Be blessed my friends!
