Heartfelt Plea

by Sandra Allen Lovelace  @SandraALovelace  #WallflowerWomen  #TimetobeYOU!

This will not be a well-organized, nicely thought out article. My insides are jumbled up as if Mexican jumping beans have launched an invasion. I’m going to continue with the hope you know the feeling.

I’ve got too much to do in too little time. And a lot of the items on my list are, shall I say, not what I feel like doing. Perseverance calls me forward, but I’m a hot mess. I had a run in with Too Busy this week and made my way through by God’s grace. May His Name be praised forever. The current onslaught is overloading my Intercessor skills and playing havoc with my Sabbatical from Stress.

Have you … When was the last time Holy Spirit alerted you to someone’s intense and possibly dangerous struggle? Let’s add on the factor that there was no way you could offer support or intervene without making it more difficult for them. I’m guessing you wouldn’t be sleeping much either. Yawning isn’t the most attractive, and nearly falling apart at the iStore upsets the staff. Life goes on and you need to keep up.

As I type that, Holy Spirit reminds me of my recent FB Live conversation with Tasha M Scott. The suggestions I made echo in my mind and call me to pull myself together. It’s time to fight in the Spirit and settle into what I know is true.

God is calling me to come to Him, to be still in His presence, and remember who He is.
God is in control. He’s neither asleep nor heartless.
God is good. He’s working all things out to bless those who love Him.
God is mighty. His will and plan cannot be thwarted by anyone or anything.

In Esther 4:16, Esther called her people to fast and pray over her going into the throne room uninvited. I’m happy to skip the fasting and ask you, my readers, to pray over Jane and her young child.* Their situation is serious, likely dangerous. Please join me in asking God to intervene where I cannot, to protect Jane and her child and get them to safety.

For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh, for the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh, but divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses. We are destroying speculations and every lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ. 2 Corinthians 10:3-5

Thank you. And now perhaps I will sleep tonight.

May God bless us all in our hearts and homes.

  1. As I read about “Jane” I thought about Hagar and Ishmael – banished and in a very dangerous situation away from the security of a loving community (Genesis 21). The Lord heard Hagar’s pleas and provided reassurance. Earlier, in a similar situation, pregnant Hagar cried out to God and, when He answered with specific direction on what to do, she called Him “You-Are-The- God-Who-Sees” (Genesis 16). I will pray for The-God-Who-Sees to intervene for “Jane” and her child, to give them the reassurance they need, and the courage to move to the safe haven God has already prepared for them. /SB

    1. Thanks, Sue. Your reply encourages my heart and calms my mind. Please join me in asking The-God-Who-Sees to reveal the seriousness of the situation to Jane. She’s got the strength to follow Him, but I’m not sure she understands the situation clearly. In His hands for His good purpose. Amen <3
