Inspire: Drink Up!

“I was pouring out my heart to the Lord!” 1Samuel 1:15b NLT

 

Sometimes we want something so bad from God we spend our days praying.

And that’s a great thing!

It’s a God thing.

It’s a faith thing.

He tells us—pray without ceasing!

Nothing big.

Nothing elaborate.

Just, continually.

Just, directly.

Just, faithfully.

Hannah understood this.

Her story tells us she was praying so much, others thought she was drunk.

Her lips moving were heaven moving.

She didn’t care about the others; she cared about her prayers.

Others saw inebriation; God saw adoration.

So go ahead friends, drink up!

Drink up the grace of God and let him hear your hearts.

Be a Hannah and pour out your soul to the Lord!

Spill over your desires and requests and needs to the One who sees what’s in your heart, not what’s on your lips.

    This is great, Renae, thank you. For me, prayer has become a habit, an addiction, an anti-depressant, an escape from reality, a release, a life-line, an intimate conversation with my Savior anytime of the night or day. The ultimate blessing, source of eternal life, cleansing, strength and an opportunity to see things from His perspective. What a God we have!!!

    1. Oh Elaine–I can see Hannah in your words! He is all of that and more…how do we not mumble throughout our day? May others see us “drunk” as we have our conversations with the Lord. Blessings to you Elaine! Thank you for your added words and stopping by.
