I have some little ones who are giving me a pretty hard time this week. Really bad, disobedient and angry attitudes, lots of tattle-tailing. I have been praying and seeking the Lord. Late one night, while I was awake, I was thinking of one in particular and asking the LORD what to do. I remembered a verse in Jeremiah 10:21 "For the shepherds are stupid and do not inquire of the LORD....". This really fits in this week with the book study that we are doing over at Jills, Praying The Names Of God.
We are studying the name of the LORD, Yahweh Roi, The LORD Is My Shepherd. I want to be wise and "inquire of the LORD" in all areas, but especially as Steve and I shepherd our family. My prayer this week is to faithfully shepherd my children, and I know that I cannot do this without the counsel of the LORD.
And now second,
Mom met with her Dr. this morning about her leg. She needs to meet with another Dr. next week. Without going into all the details, please pray. Right now, they are not sure which surgery will be best and not sure that either of them will completely give her back full use of her leg. Let's pray that our Shepherd would strengthen what is weak, and bind up what is injured and that complete recovery of her leg would happen for HIS GLORY.
