  1. This is so true and applicable-loved the analogy between parenting and our relationship with God. I too often draw parallels here. Love these simple steps to remind us not to take for granted our Father, who is everpresent. Thanks as always Rachel!

  2. Rachel, I love the parenting example right at the outset. Ouch. We really do treat God like the bail-out parent. What perfect timing on this piece in preparing my heart to give thanks!

  3. Agreed. It’s nice for someone to call with good news. And deeply is the only way I pray now, those little repetions and even giving thanks just didn’t cut it some days.

  4. Praise God that forgiveness is always available! I tweeted this post today, visiting you from Grace and Truth! Sue

  5. This is wise counsel for us. I’ve found that it’s harder to be faithful in prayer during easy times than it is during times of trial. Spurgeon agreed, I think, because he once said, “I have learned to kiss the wave that casts me against the Rock of Ages.” Thank you for sharing with us how to be faithful during “easy times.” I’m glad you shared this with us at Grace & Truth!
