1 Samuel 8

I am so behind.  Work is in full swing, my college class is in full swing.  I am going to try to catch up and check in more often.

S:  8:19 But the people refused to obey the voice of Samuel.

O:  People often go their own way, despite what they know is right.

A:  God desires our obedience.

P:  Lord help me to be disciplined in the areas of my life where I need it.  Remind me of the reasons why, for example, once my boss returns to work in Feb, I will be leaving work by 5 p.m. daily,  I need to remember that the reason I set that goal is so that I can spend more time with my sweet girls and then with my dear husband once the girls are in bed.  This will also allow me to start homework earlier, curbing the cycle of procrastination, staying up late and saving most of it for the weekends.  
God, help others to realize this too.  Others can influence us, pray for us, but letting our hearts and the Holy Spirit lead our lives is something that must be accomplished by establishing a relationship and discipline with You in prayer, in reading the bible, in faith, in breaking down the walls we've built around our hearts and connecting to others.  Breaking bad habits and old ways takes discipline and obedience.  The Lord wants to renew us, but we have to listen to Him and obey Him, which takes practice and can be hard.  Lord, please be patient with me, keep telling me the direction and I will keep trying my best to listen and go forth as you wish to do your will.

S:  26 And she said, "Oh, my lord! As you live, my lord, I am the woman who was standing here in your presence, praying to the LORD. 27 For this child I prayed, and the LORD has granted me my petition that I made to him.

O:  Our God is a God of deliverance, but we must walk by faith and make our "petitions" to him.

A:  Sometimes God will draw us down a path where it appears there is no end in sight and we will grow closer to Him, continually asking him to clarify our hearts desires.  When the time is right God will answer the prayers in His own way that gives Him glory.
I also found a website that gives some interesting points about Samuel, the most relevant with this being the introduction is that Samuel is a miracle baby and his name means "God has heard".

K:  First, we have 3 families that we know that have miscarried in the past 3-4 months, for 2 of them it was a repeat miscarriage.  Lord, if it is your will please give these families their miracle babies, heal their pain and suffering, draw them closer to you.  
Second, God, you've brought me on an amazing journey, at one point I was bitter and angry with you, I praise you for this experience and now see it's value.
Help to pray more and tell you what I need and want and to accept whatever answers you send my way.  Help me to listen when you put something on my heart.
I am patiently waiting for good news, whatever the news is, I know you have a place for me and you have my future plans laid out, deliver us, give us a fresh start.

Hi there, I am Ashleigh.  I am new to GMG and this is my 1st study.  I am a busy mom, wife, and active duty airmen of 17 years.  I want to grow closer in my journey with God and make Him the center of my daily life.  My husband and I have been married for almost 12 years and we have two girls, 2 and 6 years old.  I don't have many close friends here, especially those I can share my faith with, so I look forward to finding fellowship.  As we get ready to move again at the end of this year I want to have a resilient heart and mind through God.
