Pray That I Grow Strong

God seems to be leading me to make my first post at SharperIron as a prayer request. I have joined this community of online believers to help myself grow even stronger in faith and keep myself active online around men and women who truly love God. There are many sites that can easily tear down what God builds up. I am not a stranger to the things of God, but have just grown cold. I won't blame anyone but myself and the decisions I have made. I have been reading the Bible more, praying more, God has brought my family to the right Church about one year ago, and the Holy Spirit's convicting power has been working hard. Please pray that I grow strong and keep on seeking first the Kingdom of God and His Holy ways. Pray that I can become more loving and kind to others around me.

I am a father to three beautiful children and husband to a lovely wife here in Abingdon Maryland. Pray that I grow strong so that I can be a better father and husband as only God would want from me. Pray also for my wife Melody's health - she is a cancer survivor and has other health concerns. Pray for strength as she home schools our children.

Thank you for your time and prayers.

God Bless

Praying, Bro Tim, and welcome. And, I will pray for Melody. I know what it is like to muster energy to deal with dishes, dust, and laundry...and still have a substantial reserve left over for teaching.

I really appreciate you transparency concerning where you are spiritually and where you want to be.
I am of the opinion that even as you grow you will always have a dissatisfaction with your own condition before God. I pray regularly that I may love Him more and be more holy. I can see that the Holy Spirit is working His fruit in me but I long for more. I don't expect to ever say " OK. I think I'm where I need to be now. You can relax."
I have and will pray for you and for your wife. If there is anything I can do to be of help feel free to pm me.
