Moving Mountains (or Philistines)

My devotional this morning mentioned Shamgar, a man who struck down 600 Philistines with an ox-goad (which is a pointy stick used for herding slow-moving animals).  SIX HUNDRED Philistines taken down by one man with a stick!  (Judges 3:31)
            That got me to thinking about how much we can do if we dedicate our work to God.  Which puts me in mind of another story I heard in church one Sunday from my pastor.
            A woman was praying to move a mountain that she could see from her back yard.  (I don't remember why she wanted it moved, but that's not the point of the story.) 
            "You can't move an entire mountain just by praying," people told her.  
            "No, but God can," she replied.
            So for years this woman steadfastly prayed for that mountain to be moved.  One day, a large construction crew arrived at the foot of the mountain with a lot of dynamite.  They drove around to the nearby residents and announced that they were going to blast away the mountain to put in a new road!
            I love that story.  I guess it doesn't matter if we only have a simple stick, or have to wait for a construction crew.  What matters is that there is power in prayer, and God is listening!  If there's a job we need to do, or want done, if we dedicate it to God, anything is possible.

I'm Back...(hopefully)

It was a challenging summer.  Due to the deaths of several  loved ones, a car accident and a new diagnosis of fibromyalgia, I had to take the summer off.  I had to save my energy for my kids, so writing took a back seat.  Needless to say, I learned a lot about relying on God.   I look forward to posting again on "The Princess Project" blog, beginning this month, and to continue living out my year as a "daughter of the King", along with all of you.  God Bless.
