Prayer and Feelings

I read a blog article yesterday about prayer that was still on my mind this morning. Here's the part that I remembered most:

"Feelings precede out of faith, they don't produce it. Likewise in prayer; if we look to our feelings to tell us whether our prayers are heard/effective, etc. - we are looking to the storm and not the Savior." (click here for the entire blog article)

It's a good reminder to keep praying even if it seems pointless at times. We must remember that God does hear and answer prayer!

How easy it is to live by feelings, though! I know it is for me!

Hope you are having a great Friday and will have a blast this weekend.

It's a quote that I've been reminded of all week long. It is easy to get caught up in how we feel. I'm glad that God is constant and we don't have to base reality on our feelings. I'm glad you enjoyed the quote!
