All right... we're gonna be real here today.
We all have phobias.
Whether you can't do spiders, heights, small spaces... you get the idea.
I have anxiety, stress, emotions when I need to pray with anyone other than myself.
It's not normal for someone who is involved with God so much.
But it's me.
I always worry about whether people think my prayer is deep enough or filled with all these beautfiul words that make the point so much more extravagant than it needs to be.
Why can't we pray real quick and to the point?
I pray you can walk through this day with me providing strength and encouragement.
Am I a bad person for not extending an entire novel when I pray??
Do you think God is judging me for making it short and sweet?
Do other people think I'm ridiculous and not grounded in my Faith for praying so lightly?
I pray multiple times a day.
For friends, family, struggles, advice-- whatever pops into my head.
I stop for 15 seconds say a little prayer and go about my business.
Isn't that enough for the Lord?
I think so.
I guess it comes back to me always being a people pleaser and it's starting to royally bite me in the toosh so I need to start letting those little things go.
Who cares if someone thinks I don't pray good.
Who cares if they think I'm unstable in my walk with Christ.
I'm here to serve for my Father.
As long as I'm doing just that-- there shouldn't be judgment.
Don't you think??
