  1. Thank you, Michelle. It’s so awesome how God showed you His presence in a red bird. “I should allow Him to lead me and trust Him with the outcome. I am learning I need to connect with Him in the small pieces and the big pieces.” Me, too!

    1. Trudy, thank you – your comment made me smile…I am so glad you get the small pieces too. The small pieces are huge!

  2. I read this and then had to go somewhere. As I was out and about I had a whole comment written out in my head and now I have lost it. Oh wait, here it comes. Yay. I love this post. I love that you asked for a red bird and He gave it to you, in a place that you normally wouldn’t see a red bird, so that you couldn’t talk your way out of it really being from Him. He really does care about us. He really does. Also I know what you mean about not wanting to admit to struggling. Like if we feel like we get to “here” we should never struggle again. I thought about how thinking we should not struggle is like saying “I know I had a cold, but I am better now and I will never have another cold again.” Pretty unrealistic of an expectation of myself. I hope this weekend is a wonderful one filled with reminders of love.

    1. Thank you Karmen. Yes! He really does love us – and that is so refreshing in the middle of the struggle. How quickly “here” can become “here we go again!” Thank you for stopping by – and hope your weekend is full of His Love too!

  3. Beautiful writing! The reason I repeat the cycle of “getting” and “forgetting” is because I don’t take time to be still with him, as you said ” Alone. Turn to Him”. Thanks Michele, very encourage.

  4. Hi Michelle ~
    I am visiting from Faith Barista.
    Thank you so much for your words on prayer. I have been working on a different approach in my prayers and your words have guided me on that journey.

    1. Dorothy,
      Thank you so much for stopping by! I am so thankful this post helped you… some of my most powerful prayer times have been when I spoke aloud and alone…pouring my heart out – even if only in a whisper! Thank you so much for your encouragement!
