The Circle Maker -Mark Batterson

Hey Friends!

I do not go into religion on this here little blog of mine all that often but when I do it’s because it is something that has really hit me and hit me hard. Today is one of those days.

I was talking to my friend Danielle not to long ago about some things that are going on in my life and she suggested that I pick up the book The Circle Maker by Mark Batterson. Being someone I trust and respect, I took her advice and did so. I have been reading this book for the past few days and I have to say it is awesome! Actually right before I started to write this post I was reading the book.

I am not going to go into all the things that I have noted while reading this book but the one thing that has really hit me and has hit me hard is this one simple thing…

God’s question to me:

Is there a limit to my power?

Let that just sink in for a second.

I literally stopped reading when I read that.

Is there a limit to my power?

What a powerful question.

I believe in God, I believe that Jesus went to the cross for my sins, I have a personal relationship with the Lord, I pray daily, I read my bible daily, I even have a prayer journal I keep. I have faith that the Lord will and does provide for my family and I and there is not a day that goes by that I do not thank Him for that.

I continued to read the section of the book and I came across this:

With God, it’s never an issue of “Can He?” It’s only a question of “Will He?” And while you don’t always know if He will, you know He can. And because you know He can, you can pray with hold confidence.”

While I do pray daily I know my prayer life can use a little makeover so to speak. That question and that excerpt right there hit me so hard that I now have to step up my prayer life and stop asking CAN He and start asking WILL He. Can He answer my prayers? Yes He can. Will He answer my prayers? Yes he will. One way or another. How I deal with how He answers my prayers is on me. I know that He has a plan for me, and even though I do not know what that plan it He does and He will answer my prayers as he sees fit.

With that said…

Happy Friday Friends!

  Hugs, Nikki
