For me, please....

I don't often ask for prayers for myself. I find that to be a common denominator among Christian women! We pray for everyone else but we are often reluctant to admit our own personal need for prayers and encouragement. I have been dragging myself through each day lately and I can't seem to snap out of this funk I am in. I love, absolutely love Christmas, so I know this is not normal for me. I am stressed, I am tired, I am not feeling well and it is taking a toll. I know that some of it is health related. I have taken a lot of the sweets and white bread/pasta off of our menu this week and from now on we will be monitoring what we eat very closely. My blood sugar has been running around 60-78 this week and that is low. I know because my granny was a terrible diabetic who died from diabetic complications. I do not want to end up that way (suffering like that) when I can do things now to prevent it. My sight has gotten worse, I don't like to admit that and I am having trouble with my horomones, which is related to my PCOS and that is related to my blood sugar levels. So, I know that all of this is causing a problem but I also have a lot of stressful situations in my life right now that are causing me a lot of headache and heartache. I am asking you to pray for me to help me through this time of trial. Please, I would appreciate it so very much!

Love and Prayers to all of you,

Julie

My dear friend, I am so sorry that you are under so much stress. Please take gentle loving care of yourself. You have my prayers always. Dear Lord, please keep a close watch over my friend julie. Let her feel a touch from your healing hands, take away her stress, replace it with rest and sweet peace. Love on her Lord. In Your precious name I ask these things, believing that You hear my heart, and will answer my prayer. Amen

Praying! God has a plan for all of us. He is wanting you to lean on him. How is your Mom doing?
