I wasn’t planning on blogging today since I will be participating in the http://www.hoosierink.blogspot.com tomorrow and blogging about a book review on Monday. However, life happens and so I am using today’s post to ask anyone who comes to my blog to pray for Dan, myself, and my family.
In Darkness there is Light. For a year now that has been the tagline for both my writing and my life. Well, I’m living it out again. The darkness in my life feels overwhelming.
So I am asking for prayer that Dan and I will find jobs very soon. I also ask for prayer for a potential ministry opportunity God might be directing us towards. And I ask for prayer for our spiritual, emotional, and physical needs. We both feel very battered right now.
“Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us the assurance about things we cannot see.” Hebrews 11:1 NLT

I’m sorry for you. I am in such a strong good church now. I wish everyone had such a supportive environment. I’ve had some experiences with churches that were…let’s say, not quite as good as the one I’m in now. I know that can drain you. Poverty can drain you. Poor health can drain you. So many things in this world seem set against us to drain us. Thank God Jesus is in the business of filling us back up when we’re drained, even though it seems sometimes that he won’t ever get around to it.
My pastor has been preaching through 1 Samuel and his messages have been so encouraging. We’ve been with David hiding in the caves and running from Saul in the wilderness for several weeks. And David was there for 13 years, I think. Oh, these are not pleasant times. But what is God doing with you and Dan, I wonder, to be putting you through so much testing? Do you suppose he has big plans for you? Plans that will take a big faith?
I’m praying for you. I wish I had some money to send you. I don’t at present. But prayers I always have.
Thank you Sally 🙂
You know, God has been bring to mind a lot of people in the Bible. We read their stories so fast and know the ending that we forget the faced fearful unknown they faced for months or even years. People like David who ran for years, the prophets who no one wanted around, Mary and Martha when their brother died and wondered where Jesus was?
In fact, I’ll be posting on that in the next week or two 🙂
Oh boy, I can tell its early in the morning and I have not had enough coffee. Just caught my grammar mistake in the previous comment LOL!
I just want you to know you and Dan have been on my mind alot lately and I have been keeping you in my prayers . My hope is that you and Dan find a job that is in God’s will and that you two keep the faith . I know it’s hard and it does seem like darkness I feel like there’s alot of darkness with me also but I look at the big picture and its not as Dark as I think it is but man there are days I wonder just how much more I can take !! It never says anywhere that life would be easy to bad there’s not a easy button to push in times like these .. I guess this is where we draw closer to God and our faith gets stronger .. please remember you are in my prayers and I think of you often ..
God Bless you Morgan and your family !
Dana, thank you so much for your encouragement! You and your family are such a blessing to Dan and I 🙂
Hi Morgan, A little late to see this, but would love to pray for you and your family. Found this prayer a while ago and it just came to mind when I read your blog. I hope you find it encouraging. A Prayer of Paul the Apostle….So may God, who is the foundation of all hope,fill you with all joy and peace in your believing: so that you may enjoy overflowing hope by the power of the Holy Spirit….
