Standing in the Gap
If you read my earlier post today, you know I hit the wall and had to push through with just a quick little post. At that time, I didn’t think I was going to get a chance to actually sit down at my computer at all today. But I just now got the chance to get online (not on my smart phone) and check comments on the blog.
Turns out the reason I was able to push through the wall was because there were dear blogging friends standing in the gap and praying for me. God brought me to their minds, and they paid attention and prayed. My dear blogging friend Ann (the one who suggested Thankful Thursday) said she had tried to find a song by Babbi Mason called Standing in the Gap as her contribution to Music Monday. So that this would not be my only Monday this year that didn’t have a music theme, I decided to quickly post this song, which I found on YouTube.
My other dear blogging friend Linda provided me with much needed encouragement, as she always does. She wished me blessings when I finally complete my challenge and can enjoy a much needed rest from blogging.
I doubt that I will really slow down a lot with blogging in 2012, but it will be nice to be able to skip a day when I have nothing to say or no time to write anything worth reading.
I am thankful, though, that today the Lord provided me with this Music Monday post to share. Never underestimate the power of those who are standing in the gap for you, or how important it is to stand in the gap for others when the Lord brings them to mind.
Yay, Linda! God is good, all the time! You can do this, faithful friend. You are almost there . .. joining the prayers to keep you and cover you until the end of the challenge and beyond.
