Talk to Him.

Talk to Him.

Seems like the answer to everything, as it should be.

Prayer. It is not our last resort if all else fails, it is the first thing we run to. It is not something to take lightly, prayer is powerful.

So many of us have fallen into the trap of thinking that prayer takes so much time, sometimes we sit with God and don't even know what to say to Him. Imagine a friend you have not talked to in a while, isn't awkward when you finally sit down and talk, you try and fish for things to say or you talk about superficial things. Sometimes we treat God that way, if we don't stay in constant communication with Him-meaning reading His word, studying His heart for His children, seeing His love for us-we lose the meaning of the relationship.

Prayer is not asking God to do this or that, it is not trying to convince Him that certain things should be done this way or that way, it's simply praise. It is kneeling before your God and being still soaking in His glory and righteousness.

Prayer is telling God in all honesty who you've been. It is repentance. It is how God speaks to us. Through prayer you see that your relationship with God isn't a "one way" relationship. He responds, He speaks, He listens.

Praying for someone else, not only grows your love for them, but it lets them know that you care, you think of them.

Praying biblically is powerful! In Matthew, John, Colossians, Ephesians, Philippians and everywhere else in the bible we are taught how to pray. Not how to preform miracles, but pray.

You've got a problem? Talk to Him. You're bored? Talk to Him. Looking at His creation? Talk to Him. Seeing someone in desperate need? Talk to Him.

I can't emphasize enough the importance of prayer.

"When I think of all this, I fall to my knees and pray to the Father, the Creator of everything in heaven and on earth. I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit. Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God. Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think. Glory to him in the church and in Christ Jesus through all generations forever and ever! Amen."-Ephesians 3:14-21

I'm not proverbs thirty one

Have you ever read Proverbs 31? 

It describes a woman who is intimidating to me, yet I aspire to be. If you ever have time, read the chapter, if not, I'll break it down for you. In this chapter King Lemuel meaning "devoted to God" wrote a passage that was almost a perfect description of his mother, some say he was inspired by her wisdom. His mother, Bathsheba made her wisdom very evident when she was basically telling her son "not to fall into the trap of immorality, chasing after women will sap a king's strength. (Proverbs 31:3) I can only draw my own assumptions that Lemuel was inspired by that saying and wrote up a whole chapter based on what a woman of virtue should look like. I won't quote the chapter in this blog, although I must have read it three or four times tonight, and had it basically memorized at some point in high school, however I'll attempt to simplify with my such minuscule concoction of words.  

So, what is a Proverbs 31 woman?

It's real

Depression- the word is either used too much or not enough. 

Upon hearing that someone may be depressed, some just look the other way as if it's not real, as if it's a trend or not as bad as the guy next door. Some may treat it with medication, therapy, and may even suggest medidation. 

I heard a statistic from 2013, that 437 children die from cancer, that is one too many, and 4,600 individuals ages 10-24 will take their own lives. I am one hundred percent positive the numbers have increased since, sadly. So. Are we judging too quickly when some one may be depressed? Are we shrugging it off as if it's not a thing. Let me tell you something...

Unless you have mentally experienced the battles a depressed person fights- you have no say. Unless you have felt your own heart beat fasten it's pace because your lungs are trying to grasp for air due to heavy tear flow that became silent- you can not point fingers. Unless you felt the utter darkness that surrounds the mind and the …

what is seen is temporary

the phrase I have tattooed on my forearm states "this too shall pass..." 

lately I'm realizing that the phrase holds multiple meanings. this. what is "this" is it eluding to? here's my faulty conclusion...

this. any state of emotion, life situations, adversities, joys, sadness, pains, tragedies...this will pass. so that leads to this- whatever joys we experience, they will soon pass, what ever pains we experience, they will also pass, the most painful "this too shall pass" includes the connections we make, the relationships we spend our time building, the people...they pass. They pass right out of our lives. You can look at someone and physically see them, all the while realizing the person they were before has "passed", the essence of their being was taken along with their "passing." 

"this too shall pass." 


As contradicting as it is, the permanent tattoo on my forearm indicates how temporary things are in this life.
