Prayer Requests 4-7-17

It’s Friday, so please remember to pray for Mumsee, Mike, and the Nestlings.

Anyone else?

Psalm 34:1-14

I will extol the Lord at all times;
    his praise will always be on my lips.
I will glory in the Lord;
    let the afflicted hear and rejoice.
Glorify the Lord with me;
    let us exalt his name together.

I sought the Lord, and he answered me;
    he delivered me from all my fears.
Those who look to him are radiant;
    their faces are never covered with shame.
This poor man called, and the Lord heard him;
    he saved him out of all his troubles.
The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear him,
    and he delivers them.

Taste and see that the Lord is good;
    blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.
Fear the Lord, you his holy people,
    for those who fear him lack nothing.
10 The lions may grow weak and hungry,
    but those who seek the Lord lack no good thing.
11 Come, my children, listen to me;
    I will teach you the fear of the Lord.
12 Whoever of you loves life
    and desires to see many good days,
13 keep your tongue from evil
    and your lips from telling lies.
14 Turn from evil and do good;
    seek peace and pursue it.

  1. 1. It turns out they didn’t give us enough instruction upon discharge from the hospital. BG is supposed to be taking Miralax every day. Constipation is making the bile back up in her stomach and is causing nausea.

    2. I am feeling really beaten down and of no value. I spend my days on edge and unappreciated in my job. Guy is a micromanager and I send nothing out without his approval and he always critiques and makes changes to whatever I do which wears away at any confidence I have. I have come to really hate what I am doing but have no confidence left that I can do anything else.
    Last night I went to the office at 5 to participate in “defending your commission” with the residential agents just to be around other people and to remember that I used to be good at something. It was painfully obvious that I no longer fit in with them and I shouldn’t have been there.
    First thing this morning I got a call from Guy questioning everything I did yesterday and why I even went to that “class”.
    I sit here this morning with tedious tasks that bore me to tears and are time consuming. I don’t want to do it but must.
    I am feeling adrift, lost, and scared to venture out of the “comfort” zone I am in even though it is miserable. I feel worthless because I did try last year to find something else because either I wasn’t offered the job or the pay was way less than I could afford to take, which fed the cycle of feeling worthless and then there is the terror of failing once again if I do try to do something else.

  2. Oh, Kim dear, I feel so bad for you. You are a wonderful woman, & I know you would be an asset to any company. You are an asset to Guy, too, but he doesn’t realize it. Praying God will convict his heart of how he treats you, & praying you will feel the peace of God in your heart. Also praying that God will open a door of opportunity for you.

  3. Ditto to what Kizzie said — Kim, you are so talented and funny and creative. Praying you’ll find a niche, whether it’s with the company you’re in now or with another, where you’ll be appreciated, nurtured and allowed to bloom.

  4. My prayer request today is for me. I often bring requests for my girls or my husband, but I am in need myself, too.

    Hubby’s “issues” are wearing on me, & I am so weary of it all. I can’t write out all of what I am feeling, & why, because I don’t want to come across as disrespectful of my husband. But one of his current attitudes is particularly distressing to me. Suffice it to say that there is some pressure on me that is not mine to bear, that I cannot bear.

    There are certain matters, too, that are being ignored, & they are beginning to weigh heavily on me, to the point of feeling almost hopeless. I even very briefly considered moving upstairs with Nightingale, but then realized that that would be like “leaving” my husband, & that is not my intent. (And Nightingale wouldn’t have been thrilled. 😉 )

    As I cast these burdens of my heart into God’s hands, please pray that I can truly leave them there, & have peace amidst the difficulty. (And let’s pray that for Kim, too, & whoever else needs it.)

  5. I have a FB friend who (he and his wife) have been foster parents to two girls. I don’t know ages or details, except that they went to court today and the girls are being returned home. They made safety plans with their therapists on where to hide, who to call, and what to do.
    Some of you will understand this prayer request better than I do.

  6. And to cap it all off I just discovered that Guy has been giving residential referrals to other agents rather than let me handle them. Guess that REALLY tells me what he thinks of me.
