Romans 8:26-28

"And the Holy Spirit helps us in our distress. For we don't even know what we should pray for, nor how we should pray. But the Holy Spirit prays for us with groanings that cannot be expressed in words. And the Father who knows all hearts knows what the Spirit is saying, for the Spirit pleads for us believers in harmony with God's will. And we know that God causes all things to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them."

I know this passage. I know lots of passages. But there are some times that the Lord leads me to certain ones so that I'll remember. This one has helped me so much lately because God isn't giving us specific direction. That is unusual for me. God usually leads me in a very specific direction and I follow it. I don't think I've ever been in the place where the only thing that I knew God was saying to me is "just trust me". I've been frustrated because I don't even know how to pray but the Holy Spirit does. I know I serve and amazing, awesome God that is completely in control no matter what my circumstances look like and I'm thankful. I'm excited about life and my creator, and I am waiting to see what he has in store for us.

It's so good to hear this. It's encouraging when so much of what I hear from "Christians" is fear, complaints and frustration. We have so much to praise God for, so much to look forward to and NOTHING to worry about. We have a Savior...nothing on earth is worth denying that, and yet...we do.
