I am sure you all remember that old Bon Jovi song, Livin on a Prayer. Well I had forgotten about until yesterday. My sister e-mailed and said that she was sitting on her couch with hair color in her hair listening to 80's music when this song came on. She said she was singing at the top of her lungs and thought that is my sister and her hub. She went on to say you all have been through so many difficult journeys and you held on to each other and prayed. I know these journeys were difficult going through them but it just shows how our faith can get us through anything.
She went on to say that we epitomize the phrase "Living on a prayer." I say to her thank you for seeing that in us.
I sometimes wonder if I am being the hands and feet of Jesus and if I am really affecting people for the good of His Kingdom. I think I am. It is amazing how people are watching us all the time and we don't even notice. I think when people really watch you is when you are going through a hard time. They want to see how you handle it. So I ask you all when something happens in your life that is not what you had planned, do you keep your eyes focused on God and glorify him or do you complain and whine and whimper? We can really be a witness to people with how we react during the hard times.
This last November My husband and I had a miscarriage and lost a precious gift. It hurt really bad and I know it will for a long time, but I told myself I will keep my eyes focused on the Lord and we will get through this with our Father in Heaven. I guess people were watching and I am so glad I kept praising my Father through all of it.
We serve a mighty God and we should all be "Living on a Prayer." It makes life much easier knowing we have our Savior looking out for us.
