On The Edge

This morning found me in a place I did not want to be.  I woke up feeling like I had not slept, and the  negative voices in my head started before my feet ever hit the ground.  Actually, the first sounds I remember hearing were the those of the dogs fighting over their breakfast.  It wasn't a good way to begin.

I prayed for my attitude before leaving the house.  I felt nasty and I really didn't want to spill that all over the people I came in contact with today.  I was especially mindful of my students, as I had just received news of a young person (not one of my students) losing their life.  I have just spent the last week writing about being ready with my reason for the hope I have - I don't want to destroy that message by stealing someone's hope!

After a great meeting with a friend who understands, I came home and took a long nap - but not before contacting some of my warriors to lift me up in prayer.  I knew I was on the edge of falling in the pit and I so don't want to go there!  Thankfully, someone that I didn't even ask, emailed me to say that she was praying for me today.  I knew that God was protecting me and the knowledge that he assigns people to intercede on my behalf is incredible!  I slept well and woke up feeling rested and ready.  

I am so excited to say that God gave me the rest of my words and session 4 is now complete!  I just have the discussion booklet/journal to complete and I am only three days past my deadline.  If you have been praying for me, please don't stop!  This is one of the biggest responsibilities that God has given me and I am so excited to be a part of it.
