I'm posting every day in October for The Nester's #31Days link-up. Click here to see all of my posts in this series.

Any concern too small to be turned into a prayer is too small to be made into a burden.

-Corrie Ten Boom

I am the girl who is quick to forget about prayer until something BIG comes up.

I am the girl who makes to-do lists and schedules, striving to make everything fit and yet rarely asking God to lead her in the small things.

I am the girl who doesn't expect God to care about whether she makes it to the gym on time or how quickly she will get over this little cold.

I am the girl who loves serving in church but sometimes says yes to too many things without seeking His will.

I am the girl who feels like she should know better than to struggle with this or that sin, so she assumes God is "over it" and doesn't want to hear about it anymore.

I am the girl who has seen first-hand that prayer is powerful, yet still has not learned how to pray without ceasing.

I am the girl who is loved beyond comprehension by an amazing Father, yet too often treats Him like a genie in a bottle or an unfeeling dictator.

I am the girl who is continually learning (and re-learning) to rely on Jesus in every little challenge and every little triumph. 


  1. So good, Tab. So, so good.

    I'm that girl too. <3

  2. So well written...so much truth (in my own experience)!


Thanks for your comment! I try to reply to all comments within the post itself so we can keep the conversation going.
