Hippo's may look cute and friendly, but they are really vicious creatures that wouldn't hesitate to attack you if you get in their way. That's how I feel about myself--There is more to me than meets the eye! I am not by any means vicious but sometimes I like to pretend that I am sassy. I created this blog to share lovely things, creative things, thoughtful things, and just the things that I like.

Wednesday Wisdom: Pray Without Ceasing
Just thought I would share something that's on my heart. Sometimes I get so weighed down and frustrated and overwhelmed with life. I get so stressed out that I can't control the outcomes of things no matter how hard I try. I've faced so many setbacks with coaching so far, and teaching has definitely not been easy either. I hurt for my students that have behavior problems, and students who are more than likely going home to broken families, neglect and other things. I hurt for my friends and family who seem to be having a hard time in life. I hurt for the people of the world who face atrocities that I cannot even imagine. So often I feel utterly helpless until God hits me over the head with a hammer: The answer is PRAYER. I wish I could say I am a prayer warrior, but the truth is I am not. I go through spurts. Sometimes I am on fire consistently praying, and I would have to say that most of the time I am a lazy Christian. Lately I have been in a slump. About a week ago I had an issue come up with one of my students that really bothered me and I took care of it, but it still upset me. Prayer was not my first thought, but fortunately, God sent me a reminder. Remember next time when you feel helpless, that you are not. You have the most powerful being on your side. He wants to help.
