But he who trusts in the LORD, mercy shall surround him. Be glad in the LORD and rejoice, you righteous; and shout for joy, all you upright in heart! Psalm 32:10b-11
Bobby had a strong-willed, bright, risk-taking personality from day one. He challenged me every day and stretched my trusting capacity to the breaking point. I learned to shoot up urgent arrow prayers in many situations and my faith in prayer strengthened with immediate answers.
We were physically isolated in an extremely large country home with “workaholic” in-laws and husband. Generally speaking it was me, Bobby, and the Lord. I have a vivid memory of my two year old laughing with great delight as he rode his “big wheel” down our paved drive way, which was on a large hill, with no hands or feet!
My arrow prayers became extremely frequent, laser specific and to my great relief they were answered in like manner. There was never a dull moment with Bobby!
Prayer: I surrender to your loving all sufficient care. You are so worthy of my total trust.
Thought: I believe God puts us in situations beyond our control or ability to “fix” to mature our prayer life and convict us of who really is in control.
