Too Big?

Do you ever have a request for God that you almost feel silly asking Him for? Not because He isn't big enough to take care of any need but because to your human mind it just doesn't seem possible? I do that alot, I feel bad "bothering" God with my needs or even my family's needs. God has blessed us time and time again and I can't begin to tell you of all the miraculous things He's done for us. But I still let my human sized faith get in the way sometimes. I want to badly to believe and trust that anything can be done but then I let doubt creep in slowly but surely. I keep trying to figure it out in my mind how it'll work out or how it will be taken care of. But time and time again He proves He can do! I don't understand how many can not believe in God when I've seen Him do things over and over that only a higher, powerful "being" could do. I've seen Him answer prayers NO one knew my parents were praying, not even me until after they were met. It has helped solidify God to me in a very sound way.

Recently several unexpected things have come up in our lives. Various things that we honestly just don't have the extra income to deal with right away. Thinking about it overwhelms me greatly although I know God has never let us down before and I don't expect Him to now. I am pulling on every ounce of faith I have right now to take care of these things. They have to do with health, transportation, family, etc. I keep praying as I know my husband is doing as well and I know somehow, someway, at just the right time God will take care of these things for us. It's hard to be patient because I want them taken care of and done with today but God doesn't work on our time.

My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways, says the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts.”
- Isaiah 55:10-11

I am taking deep breaths and taking it a day at a time knowing that my Father knows best. He cares for even the smallest bird so certainly He knows my needs. I was praying the other day and I told Him my needs, even though He knows them, sometimes I think He just wants to hear us actually say it and put belief behind it. And so I told Him - I put each individual need out there. I felt silly and overwhelmed listing it all. As though not saying it makes it go away or something! I know my husband is praying and believing as well and so together we stand strong in the faith that God is going to bless us and see us through this time. He always has before!

Again I say to you that if two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven.” - Matthew 18:19-20
