MY PRAYER FOR BETHANY


LORD, AS I LOOK BACK OVER THESE LAST 12 YEARS MY FIRST THOUGHT IS WHERE DID THE TIME GO? THANK YOU FOR GIVING ME THIS STEWARDSHIP CALLED MOTHERHOOD. SOME OF THE THINGS I RECALL ABOUT BETHANY: STRUGGLING TO READ IN THE FIRST GRADE. THE ANSWER TO THAT WAS A BEKA VIDEO. THANK YOU, LORD FOR GUIDING US WHEN WE WERE TOO IGNORANT TO FIGURE THINGS OUT ON OUR OWN. ANOTHER THING I RECALL: WHEN SHE WAS LITTLE SHE NEVER SEEMED TO MEET A STRANGER, YOU’VE GIVEN HER A LITTLE MORE CAUTION NOW. SHE WAS ALWAYS SUCH A HAM AND SHE DIDN’T MISS GETTING INTO A PHOTO IF SHE COULD HELP IT.
PLEASE BLESS HER AND GIVE HER A BRIGHT FUTURE AS LONG AS SHE’S ON THIS EARTH (WE KNOW THAT ULTIMATELY HER FUTURE IS BRIGHT IN HEAVEN WITH YOU). IF IT IS IN YOUR PLAN THAT SHE MARRY, I PRAY THAT YOU WILL PREPARE HER HUSBAND FOR HER, KEEP HIM PURE AS SHE HAS KEPT HERSELF PURE FOR HIM. GIVE HIM A LOVING AND KIND HEART TOWARD HER TO UNDERSTAND HER STRUGGLES AND FOR THOSE HE DOESN’T THAT HE WILL JUST PUT UP WITH THEM AS SHE WILL HIS. IF FURTHER EDUCATION IS IN YOUR PLAN, GIVE HER WISDOM WHICH PATH TO PURSUE. HELP HER TO TAKE A FIRM STAND ABOUT HER CONVICTIONS. HELP HER TO HAVE A STRONG FAITH IN YOU AND HELP THAT FAITH TO CARRY HER ON WHEN SHE FEELS HELPLESS OR ALONE. HELP HER TO EXPECT GREAT THINGS WHEN SHE PRAYS, FOR SHE SERVES A GREAT GOD. HELP HER NOT TO FEAR WHEN FOLLOWING YOUR WILL BECAUSE "FAITHFUL IS HE THAT CALLETH YOU WHO ALSO WILL DO IT." (1 Thes. 5:24)
THIS IS MY PRAYER FOR BETHANY. THANK YOU THAT YOU LOVE HER MORE THAN I EVER COULD, AND YOU WANT THE BEST FOR HER AND YOU ARE ABLE TO LEAD HER THROUGH LIFE. THANK YOU FOR WHAT YOU ARE GOING TO DO. IN JESUS NAME AND FOR YOUR GLORY, AMEN.

Lisa, I have to agree with you....WHERE have the years gone???? It's hard for me to believe that your youngest has graduated! If I'm not mistaken it was sort of through our both homeschooling that we met many, many years ago now. I'm go glad that God had our paths to cross. You and Bro. Tony and your children have been big blessings in our lives. It's such a blessing to know people that have stayed faithful to God all through the years.

Congratulations Bethany! I pray the Lord will bless you mightily in the days and years to come!

Love to you all.....

Marilyn
