Energy, Power & Strength

“We can be tired, weary, and emotionally distraught,

but after spending time alone with God,

we find He injects into our bodies energy, power and strength.”

~ Charles Stanley ~

Ever since I was a little girl, there was only one way for me to find peace. Prayer. No one taught it to me. For me, it was innate. I prayed if I was scared, alone, or filled with anxiety.

I still can remember being about five years old. We would have wicked thunderstorms in the middle of the night. Of course, we had no air conditioning so my window was wide open. It was terrifying.

I would pull my blanket over my head even though it was hotter than hell in my bedroom. I would hold my Raggedy Ann and Andy tight against my chest and with all my might pray for peace.

Every scenario would run through my mind. A tree would be struck by lighting and land on our roof. Our house would be struck by lightning and catch on fire. A very active imagination, indeed!

When I was in high school, every night I would dream of being unable to find my locker. Or, I would dream that I could find my locker but couldn’t remember my locker combination.

I would meet up with my friends a half hour early for school. I truly believed that my dream would come to fruition. The anxiety from my dreams would seep into real life.

My friend realized this and would try to allay my fears. Every morning she would tell me that it was only a dream. It definitely helped having her show me the truth. She was and is a true friend.

Through the trials and tribulations of adult life, I lost my ability to pray for a few years. As a result, I lost myself. I lost myself to myself. I allowed the hurts, disappointments, and betrayals change me.

I forgot who the true me was. It took a few years for me to remember. I felt lost. God brought the right people in my life at just the perfect time. And, reconnected me with my forevers.

I remembered. I was always the quiet observer. Always doing my own thing, my own way. Always friends with everyone. Happy in being me even when alone – just me and my God.

I still face fear, anxiety, and a sense of loneliness because it is part of who I am. But now, in prayer, I find my peace. My wish for you is that you, too, find your energy, power, and strength in your God through prayer!

I pray you find your way “Back to God”!

Back to God – Reba McEntire

Oh have you looked around
Have you heard the sound
Of Mama’s cryin’
Or do you turn away
When you see the face
Of the innocent dyin’
In these darkest days
Are you not afraid
That it’s too late

You gotta get down on your knees, believe
Fold your hands and beg and plead
Gotta keep on praying
You gotta cry, rain tears of pain
Pound the floor and scream His name
‘Cause we’re still worth saving
Can’t go on like this and live like this
We can’t love like this
We gotta give this world back to God

Have you lost a love?
Do you feel like givin’ up?
Has your heart been broken?
Are your kids okay?
Will they come home safe?
Do you lie there hoping?
You can make a wish, you can knock on wood
Oh it won’t do no good

You gotta get down on your knees, believe
Fold your hands and beg and plead
Gotta keep on praying
You gotta cry, rain tears of pain
Pound the floor and scream His name
‘Cause we’re still worth saving
Can’t go on like this and live like this
We can’t love like this
We gotta give this world back to God

You gotta get down on your knees, believe
Fold your hands and beg and plead
Keep on praying
You gotta cry, rain tears of pain
Pound the floor and scream His name
‘Cause we’re still worth saving
Can’t go on like this and live like this
We can’t love like this
You can hope the best
Make a wish
The only answer is

We give this world back to God
Oh, give it back
