  • One of my biggest problems with asking for God’s help, is that I put conditions on my request. I never thought I sounded like a child saying “I promise to feed the dog, if you let me have one!” And just as you said a week or so later, the promise was conveniently forgotten.
    With the Holy Spirit’s assistance, I know I will be more cognizant of any requests that I send to the Lord. I just need to remember that His timetable and mine are completely different. Thank you, Jeff for bringing something as simple as a request to the Lord can be in need of repair!

  • In my case, I don’t recall asking God for a perfect dog. However, perhaps since I don’t have children of my own, I know that God brought me to the dog that I adopted from the local animal shelter. He has been the perfect companion for me, my “baby”. He will be 17 years old in a couple of weeks and I have had him for all but the first 5 months of his life. I frequently thank God for bringing me this precious gift. I think this is an example of God knowing your needs even before you do and providing for you. So I don’t take this for granted and I give praise and thanksgiving to the One who provided.
