I promise that the title is not a misspell! Since ‘funner’ has gained acceptance into dictionaries, I see nothing holding me back from coining any terms…
‘Proiling’ is a combination of ‘praying’ and ‘toiling’, two things that should never be in the same sentence. I love how James 1:5-8, from The Message Bible explains the danger of proiling our prayers:
“ If you don’t know what you’re doing, pray to the Father. He loves to help. You’ll get his help, and won’t be condescended to when you ask for it. Ask boldly, believingly, without a second thought. People who “worry their prayers” are like wind-whipped waves. Don’t think you’re going to get anything from the Master that way, adrift at sea, keeping all your options open.”
Worrying and toiling are dependencies of each other as you cannot do one without the other! Similar to how praising and praying are.
I hate to admit that I am often more of double-minded proiler than a single-minded praiser, but God isn’t finished with his transforming work in me. Whether you are an over analyzer like me or just a natural born skeptic, Jesus won’t ever give up on the fierce fight for your heart!
On this Mother’s Day, my heart goes out to all the wonderful mothers around the world, who pray for nothing but the best for their children. It is my hope that even when the best is not in the picture frame of their child’s life, that they will continue entrust their child’s future in the hands of God, who knows the exact numbers of hairs on their head. The selfless actions and unconditional love of a mother transcends racial, genetic, personality and frankly all earthly boundaries. God gave us mothers to give us a glimpse of how unrelenting His pursuit of us is! Happy, Happy Mother’s Day!
