Soaring

 “One can never consent to creep when one feels an impulse to soar.” Helen Keller 

I didn't know all I had to do was ask... It sounded too simple. But yesterday that's what I did. I asked and all of a sudden the thing I wanted came. The people I needed stepped forward. I got what I had the courage to ask for.

I feel humbled.....overwhelmed.  I know it's His love....waves of it....that makes me feel like I'm flying. And the best ever....He accepts me....just as I am.....and loves me.....just because. 

Feeling His love frees me....gives me courage.....makes me want to reach higher....stretch farther....live better.....and be the best I can be. I'm so grateful that He loves me and accepts me....... 

Just as I am.....

It's such a wonderful and warm feeling when we remember we are not traveling this journey of earthly life alone... and dare to ask HIM for help... He and His Angels are more than happy to guide us along.... xo Blessings, HHL

What a wonderful praise!

You have not because you ask not...

Now, I need to listen to the music. I always enjoy the music on here.

Such a beautiful song. I let it wash over me and came to Him -- though tossed about with many a conflict and many a doubt! In our coming we receive.

Blessings,
Pamela

Trust and give all things big or small to Him in prayer, ask with an honest, sincere heart, and God, the giver of all things, the carrier of all things will carry you and give to you accordingly...
I am happy for you.

He wants us to ask him for everything, nothing is too small!!! We may not always get it, just like a dad will not always give his child everything he wants, only the dad knows what's best. In this case, you must have asked for what was best!!

Tracy said...

What a great post and why is it so difficult to ask for help? I struggle with that daily; so fearful of being rejected....one of my daily lessons in life.
I love that song...thanks so much for the great post!

What a beautiful testimony to God's faithful provision. Thanks, Nikki. I'm encouraged for His provision in my own life too.

Wanda said...

This makes me smile. How many times are we struggling to get something, when all we need to do is ask. Amazing!

It's soooo simple isn't it???

I thinks that's one reason I love workin' with the children so much. They so innocently respond to the simpleness of salvation.

'Just as I am!!! Beautiful sweetie

Have a blessed week my friend!!! :o)
