awnsered prayers

so if you are one of my bffs you know i my family has been through some hard things lately. but i'm not here to talk about how hard life is, i'm trying to tell you how amazingly prayers are answered. i was REALLY upset. like i don't know the last time i had cried this hard, and once again if you know me well you know i cry A LOT! I was in my bedroom sobbing my heart out. I prayed to find some comfort because i knew the situation wasn't going to change. I ended my prayer and sat on my bed for a moment. And it wasn't like a voice talking to me but it sure wasn't my own mind, i heard
Trust in the lord with ALL thy heart and lean not to thy own understanding, in ALL thy ways acknowledge him and he shall direct thy paths. proverbs 3:5&6 I knew that if i trusted the lord he wouldn't lead me astray.
THEN.... i found a letter we had written to ourselves last year's Christmas to open this Christmas. but the thing was i hadn't read it since i wrote it. it just happened to be in the middle of the floor! so i read it. it was advice from the me one year ago. I gave myself the best advice. in that letter was everything i need to hear at the moment. so the part about all thy ways acknowledge him... i figured this is one of my ways. blogging is something that I do. so this is me acknowledging him. I know that Heavenly Father listens to and answers our prayer. the ones i just said are two in hundreds of ways prayers have been answered for me. i know that Jesus Christ lives, he love us and understands the pain we are going through.
so we life gets too hard to stand kneel
