New Eyes, Refreshed Prayers!

Yesterday I was printing out some of the wonderful scripture patches from some of our recent orders! I love each of them!

What a wonderful blessing! A blessing that could easily be missed. A blessing that has been missed in the past. As I continue to ask God for His eyes, His heart and to see His blessings all around me, this is one that is pretty special.

I choose to see it. Embrace it. Praise Him for it!

All these wonderful bits of His word! And not only bits of His word, but each is associated with the name of a child! One of His beloved....

As I read through each scripture word for word, it becomes a prayer for the child who's name is also written. His word comes to life in a new way. My eyes prayers refreshed. Here are a few...

Allie Shae ~ "He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust; his truth shall by thy shield and buckler. Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day." Psalm 91:4-5

Griffin Tate ~"Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be men of courage; be strong. Do everything in love." 1 Cor. 16:13-14

Mahayla Faith ~ "Keep me as the apple of the eye, hide me under the shadow of thy wings." Psalm 17:8

Alexis Rae ~"The Lord will watch over your life no matter where you go, both now and forever." Psalm 121:8

Adalyn Joy ~"These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and your joy may be full." John 15:11

We've always prayed over our dolls and the children receiving them, but I thank you Lord for new eyes. Thank you for the opportunity to pray for each of these children in the fullness of your Spirit!

May each of you be blessed today. May we each seek to know Him more!

What a precious post.

This is why I chose the verses for my daughters. For Abigail Joy, who was prenatally diagnosed with a genetic condition, the Lord dropped John 9:1-3 in my heart, ending with, "this happened so that the work of God might be displayed in [her] life."

Tears fill my eyes when I think about it. No one did anything wrong. Things like this happen, but if we are open to it, God's glory will be shown and it has in Abbie's life.

I hated that I put so much text on the girls' dolls, but these dolls MEAN something. And it meant enough to this Mommy to make sure that the words I want my daughters to know were on these dolls.

Thank you for your ministry. Blessings!
