"Pray at all times - on every occasion, in every season - in the Spirit, with all{manner of} prayer and entreaty, To that end keep alert and watch with strong purpose and perseverance, interceding in behalf of all the saints {God's consecrated people}." Ephesians 6:18 AMP 

Have you ever felt as if you were a little fish in a big pond? I thought this child may feel this way, but then I thought maybe there are 20 people at the other end we can't see? We don't always have the luxury of seeing the whole picture.

I think she is happy, so I'm not going to be concerned. How our minds can jump to conclusions! I have concluded about others character on very small tidbits of information.

I'll bet you have done this too. Prayer is important when it comes to deciding how we feel about someone. Sometimes first impressions can be deceiving. Do you conclude someone isn't "your type" on first meeting and forget about building a friendship?

I have done this too many times to count! Fear was behind some of these judgements. I have been open to people as I have gotten older. I don't have time to play games. We are all the same on the inside.

When it comes to prayer, God tells us in this verse to"watch with strong purpose and perseverance, interceding in behalf of all the saints." I'm putting away immature behavior so I can focus on what can make another stronger.

I don't want you to congratulate me or anything, because I don't have it done to perfection! I don't think any of us have. Let's be aware of our judgements so don't push away those who may need our help. Give out what God has given to you. This is a sure way to filled again!
