Weigh In and Prayer Request

Just wanted to check in and tell you that I lost a pound this week. I'm happy about that of course. But it seems very minor to me today.

Because I also wanted to just ask anyone who would like to, to remember me and some situations in prayer today. Life has a way of going along smoothly and suddenly you hit a brick wall. I always say that life in the ministry is a life of privilege - and it is. But sometimes, when people under your care are hurting - we have the privilege of hurting with them. And lately it's been more than just one person. We have some incredibly serious hurts going on right now and the pain of it all gets to be almost unbearable. People we love and care for deeply are experiencing huge and difficult situations. People my husband and I invest our lives in daily. Life is just really hard sometimes, but I am remembering that God is good and He is in charge. I am remembering that "The eyes of the Lord are toward the Righteous, and His ears toward their cry." Psalms 34:15
Thank you for your prayers today.

So sorry for the pain. It is good to know that God's loved ones do not suffer alone. Thanks for standing in the gap!

And good job on the pound. But I understand how that would seem trivial. Still ... God cars for every pound.

You got it, lots of prayers coming your way, keep your chin up. It seems like these things just come out of nowhere to smack us down.

Meeting our blogging buddies in heaven will be an extra treat. Thanks for that reminder. I had not thought of it.

I will be lifting up those hurting today, and I loved your post at Tales from the Scales. You were right on!

I will most assuredly be praying for your strength and that of your husband. That God will continue to fill your hearts with His love till it overflows to those around you. They will get the overflow so that you are not drained completely.Thanks for serving the Lord.

I'll be praying for you guys! I'm from a long line of pastors, so I understand that when you are shepherding a flock, you hurt when they hurt! Blessings, Robin!
