Don't you ever wish that you got God? That you didn't have days of doubt, where you wondered what this life was all about, if prayer made a difference, how much prayer is needed, etc... I wish I got Him, but all I know for sure is that He gets me and He meets me right where I am at and for that I am so very grateful.

Today I had one of those days of doubt in my mind. The past three years I've really stepped out in the place of prayer. One of my friends told me that I would experience more downs than up in this area but to keep praying and believing. She ended up being right. When I started on the journey I had a lot of ups, that got me pumped. Then the downs kept coming and perseverance was needed and I have persevered but some days it has been just plain old hard. Today was hard, I don't know why, it just was. I didn't share it with anyone, but God. My questions today were general and specific and I just asked Him (didn't hear anything back) and then I walked through my day.

8:30 pm my phone rang. "Hey Jaime, I just wanted to let you know I appreciate all you do with prayer. You've carried a lot these last few years, and I just want you to know I love your heart and all you do. Prayer matters." I just laughed and said, "Did God send you an e-mail today?" "No, God just placed you on my heart, so I thought I would call." This person addressed every single question specific and general that I had asked God today and they didn't even know I had the questions.

He's rescued me once again. I am so thankful that He knows my heart and He cares enough to step in and address my heart. I feel tangible loved by my Father today.


I can't end without bringing a lesson in, that's just the way I am. As I said in yesterday's post we are all needed in the body of Christ. Listen to the Head, like my friend did today, and He will use you to bless other people's lives and in the process strengthen the body of Christ.


  1. Just think if we all did what we felt God put on our heart! I know I don't do it nearly enough.

  2. Amen! I love the way the Holy Spirit works, very similar for me lately!! Your blog is just beautiful! I write on His names weekly at one my of my blogs and would love for you to link up sometime. :-)
    In Him,
