It’s a praying game…

1 John 5:14-15

14  This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. 15 And if we know that he hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of him.

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

16  Be joyful always; 17 pray continually; 18 give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.

Philippians 4:6

6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.

Life is a praying game..or at least it should be!  This week I am finding out all I can do is pray.  Physically, I have done all I can do.  I successfully registered for the Boston Marathon on Monday.  I was given a submission number and now it is a praying game!  Throughout this week everyone who qualified can register.  After the close of registration on Friday at 10:00 pm, they will sort us out by fastest times. Fastest runners in and the others are still Boston Qualifiers! We will receive an email either way after 10pm Friday evening.

So, this brings back the subject of being still and waiting. 🙂

Psalm 46:10

10 “Be still, and know that I am God..”

I am hopeful and I am at peace.  We know that nothing is impossible with God…if He wants me there…I will be there.  If not, that is ok!

Mark 10:27

27 Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God.”

The next post will reveal the answer to the big question…Am I running the 2012 Boston Marathon?

God willing I will! If His will is NO…then there is something better! Amen!
