Have you ever been unable to sleep?

Have you ever woke up in the middle of the night and find yourself unable to go back to sleep?

Counting sheep?

Worrying over the days events.

Thinking about how will I pay this months bills

Worry over money.

Worrying about the kids.

Worry about the car, car payment, car insurance.

Kids need shoes, clothes where will you get the money?

The worry list can go on and on.

God said cast your burden's on Him.

Be faithful to God.

Have an on going relationship with Him.

Pray.

You might be thinking, pray?

I don't know how to pray.

Prayer is COMUNICATION.

Comunicating with the Creator.

It is talking to God about everything that concerns you.

It is asking God's favor over sickness and health. Asking God to intervein over ever issue you have.

Pray to God to intervein on behalf of someone else's needs.

Always give God the Glory.

I give you all the credit, GOD- you got me out of that mess, you didn't let my foes gloat.

GOD, my God, I yelled for help and you put me together.

GOD, you pulled me out, gave me another chance at life when I was down--and-out.

All you saints!

Sing your hearts out to GOD!

Thank him to his face!

He gets angry once in a while, but across a lifetime there is only love.

The nights of crying your eyes out will give way to days of laughter if you just trust in Him.

When things were going great, I crowed, "I've got it made.

I'm GOD's favorite.

He made me king of the mountain."



Then you looked the other way and fell to pieces.

Call out to GOD;

Lay your case before Him:


Lord, Listen! and be kind!
Help me out of this!" GOD;


God will turn your night into day.

God will put a dance in your step.

God will deck you with wildflowers.

Your cup will overflow.

Give God the Glory.

Sing Praise to His name.

Burst out with song;

Don't keep quiet about what God has done for you.

GOD, my God,

I can't thank you enough.

I will Rejoice

God, I give you all the credit.

Psalms 30:5

For his anger lasts only a moment, but his favor lasts a lifetime; weeping may remain for a night, but rejoicing comes in the morning.

When we lay all our cares at His feet He takes care of everything and this allows us to rejoice in Him. Blessings.

Norma,
This moves along nicely. Well done. I did spot a couple of spelling errors 'Communicate' and 'Intervene'
Well done!
