As I Sat

00:00

Description

Whether it’s a difficult issue with one of your kids or just feeling overwhelmed by life, try simply sitting with Jesus without feeling the need to offer up any words at all. Just sit.

I’ll be honest, for years I struggled during difficult times with what to say when I prayed.   

I finally found exactly what I needed. If I’m going through something hard, I can pray prayers where I don’t speak at all.

I can just sit with Jesus making no suggestions, offering no solutions. Sometimes, I have nothing but quiet tears and a heavy heart. The beautiful thing is the Bible promises when we sit with Jesus like this, the Holy Spirit lifts up the exact right prayers for me. And eventually, I sense God there and there is peace.

What are you going through today?  Whether it’s a difficult issue with one of your kids or financial stress or just feeling overwhelmed by life, I encourage you to sit with Jesus without feeling the need to offer up any words at all.  Just sit.
