His Will Wednesday Continued: (Making Light of the Dark)

Good Morning world.

In effort to bring light out of all the madness we all have experienced via Internet/blog life over the last few days.  I thought I would bring some light from all this dark.  

I don't have much time to write, for I need to be on my way to the hospital this morning. I have an handsome young one-year-old waiting for his picture to be taken as he has his Christening today. 

I do want to give a big THANK YOU for all of your very, very, very kind words of support to my post yesterday.  I am thankful that everyone agreed to take the highroad and continue to pray for these people NO MATTER WHAT.

As I was sitting in the dark rocking my beautiful daughter last night for bedtime.  I was giving thanks and prayer, because GOD gave me the words to my post yesterday, they didn't come from me.  Although, it can be easy to feel good about yourself and take credit, I am giving credit where the credit is due.  

As I was praying, God I believe gave in insight on something that I feel He would like us to continue; His Will Wednesday.  I am not committing to this weekly, I'd like to, and I still may.  I just wanted to do it first today and see how it goes.  

Out of all the drama and craziness of this April Rose, I do believe that God is NOT ABOVE using negative things or situations for HIS good.  I believe that 100%.  

Over reading many posts, comments and emails, one of the most positive things that I saw being repeated was "HIS WILL WEDNESDAYS" and how people appreciated having HWW in order to post their own prayers and or pray over others.  Many feel blessed out of such a horrible thing as hoaxing April Rose, because they were ones being prayed over by hundreds of others from that blog.  

I think today would be a great place to start with keeping His Will Wednesday going, in effort to bring light from dark, giving everyone continued hope and positive support through their trying times in life.  

Although, I do not have the time like "B" did each week, writing a detailed post of prayer request, for she did do an amazing job with HWW, for that I give her praise.  

And although, I do not have hundreds of followers to my blog.  That doesn't matter to God.  There is a particular story in the bible of a man that was heading into battle (sorry, I am in a hurry and I am drawing a blank).  He was going into battle with thousands of soldiers, maybe 3000.  God told him "that was too many, and to get rid of all these soldiers only keeping 300." Going into a battle now with less men, it would almost seem impossible to win that battle, but then God smiled and said "I AM THE VICTORY and to trust me."  So with this battle of April Rose, lets let GOD continue to be the VICTORY, and continue HIS WILL WEDNESDAY.  
This way EVERYONE WINS and we can focus on the good that the April Rose hoax brought to us. 

With that being said, it doesn't matter if I have 1 follower, hundreds of followers or thousands.  When GOD is involved, as long as two or three come together in His name, HE is also present.  Amen. 

I will ask around and see if someone can make up a new His Will Wednesday button, to replace the old one. Or, if someone has the old and wants to share it with me, please feel free to email me the code.  I don't mind using the old button at all for now.

In closing, if you have a prayer request please leave it in the comment box.  Its still an early part of the day.  That gives everyone ALL DAY and ALL EVENING to read your prayer request and have people join in with you in prayer. Only good can come from this. 

Off to the hospital now.

God Bless.

PS:  Today the comment moderation is turned off, so your prayer will be posted right away. 

25 Personal Thoughts:

Misty -

I am fairly new to your blog. I, too, thought of continuing His Will Wednesdays. If you ever need help with this, I would be happy to help some. You can contact me through my blog (theduepners.blogspot.com; or my e-mail address - ckasmarzik@hotmail.com).

I agree that we should continue to pray for Beccah and all involved because they are obviously not well and need our prayers. It is the Christian thing to do.

Thank you for setting such a great example. My heart is so heavy for all involved - especially Rachael. She was so taken advantage of in this whole thing. I hope she realizes that there are many GOOD people out in the blog world and that we are all behind her 100%.

Much Love,

Tina

Abby said...

I just found your blog through another. I must say that I totally agree with you about HWW. We must carry it on! I'll start with the first prayer request... Please pray for whoever is behind the April blog. Even if there is no April, there is someone there who needs God. If there IS a baby April, she and her parents need God. I pray that He will carry these people and lead them into peace and love, no matter what their situation.

Misty,

I too am fairly new to your blog but have been out of the blog world for a little while. I just read about the April Rose ordeal today from your blog as well as MckMama's. I think you have set a wonderful Christian example here on your blog and I highly commend you for that. I, as well ask for prayers for all the people behind April Rose (real or not) they need our prayers.

Misty-I got to your blog from the whole April Rose incident but I am thankful that I did get here.

Thank you for your post yesterday. It was very clear to read and understand and clarified a few things for me.

I too was one that eagerly anticipated the arrival of April Rose and feel used in the fact that it was all a hoax.

I pray for Beccah and D-if there was a D involved-that they come to know God's word. She wrote so well about Him and his will so I am having a hard time understanding why this happened. I guess that is something that I will never know but I just know that God is forgiving.

Thank you again and I will keep checking back on your blog for updates on you.

I think it's great to make light out of this darkness. I've posted a link to your website from mine, with an image of the His Will Wednesdays image that you can grab to use for the Wednesday prayers.

I think it's a great idea to keep His Will Wednesdays going. We all need to pray for this woman, even though we are all hurt by this. I would like for everyone to also pray for my little girl Hope. I am 33 weeks pregnant and she was diagnosed with holoprosencephaly when I was only 14 weeks. I assure you, I am real, and so is little Hope. You can see her blog at chloeandhopeweeks.blogspot.com
I hope everyone will pray for her and continue to pray for B.

As the others here, I was also taken in by "April Rose". In all my "discovery" yesterday, I did come upon your blog and do not feel it was by chance. I am thankful and will continue to come back.

As I have prayed for "B" for months and do continue to do so, but for other reasons, I do have a different prayer request for you and it is for myself.

I am divorced, (have been for nearly 11 years) and remarried. My 14 year old son has been having difficulty with discipline issues and my husband and I provide supervision and discipline, which my ex, basically does not. My ex has found a way to use this for his gain. For the last month he has allowed my son to not come over for his visitation (we share 50/50) and then decided to file court papers to change custody requesting I only see my son 1 day a month and to pay him child support (for him it is for monetary reasons). I am heartbroken and fearful of the impact this will have on my son. I am representing myself in court tomorrow against him and his very expensive attorney. I am praying for courage, strength, wisdom and clarity in justice. I also ask for prayers for my son. He is a confused 14 year old that is now in the middle of a "game". I pray for his safety, well-being and guidance. I also pray for my ex-husband.

Thank you.

What an amazing idea and I personally cant think of a better person to lead these! I think the comments section being open is a great way to save you on time as well! Did you come up with the button? I know its cached on my computer, and i dont see a problem using it either!

Thanks for giving us all hope, and praising our Lord and Creator for allowing you to be used in such a great fashion!

Hugs!

Misty,

I am glad that God gave you the words to say on Tuesday. I am just trying to piece everything together. I know that your heart was in the right place and I am praying for everyone involved.

(((((HUGS)))))

Great idea!
I can see how the Lord is really stirring something up inside of you and it's beautiful!

kay said...

I agree with continuing His Will Wednesday. I don't know much about the April Rose situation, but I do know that HWW is a positive thing that has sprung from it, and I think it should be continued.

Today I want to pray especially for my sister, who lost a friend in a car accident on Monday. I also want to pray for everyone who knew Jessica- her family, friends, classmates, and anyone else who is missing her right now. I pray that they feel God's presence during this dark hour.

I would just like to say that I think using the old button would be very nice. It was a great button and it would be a testimony to how even the worst situation can be redeemed. If you don't have it, I can email it to you if you want or you can get it from any of the old posts that can be googled and pulled up by the "cached" option.

Just my $.02

Girly said...

I've looked through both this post and the last one and I could not find a comment that linked to Raechel. I saw a comment from a different Rachel but not Raechel that was posting for B. Please, correct me if I'm wrong :)

I think this is a great way to honor and trust not only the promise the He redeems and restores but also all those hurting families with legitimate prayer requests. I can only imagine how fooled some of them felt for sending such intimate and personal requests to someone who was doing it all only for blog traffic, to get money. Whether you get the old button or not (not sure how I feel about using the old one though) I know there are many who will benefit from continuing this "tradition".

Prayer Request: My cousin gave birth to a baby girl 7 weeks early and she is in the NICU. She has apnea and stops breathing several times each day. Please pray for her. The doctors think she will outgrow it and are giving her caffine to help with it.

Pray for a little boy who ran out to greet his dad on the riding lawn mower and was severly injured when he fell and the blades struck his lower leg.

Pray for our friend who was in a rollover accident and sustained injuries to her neck, broken arm and cuts. She is a mother of 4 and is in the hospital recovering.

Pray for me and my husband. We are new parents after 15 years of marriage and adjusting to life with our little one is taking some work. I need to be more understanding and open with my feelings and communicate with him more. I am not a great communicator.

Thank you SOOOO much for the continuation of the HWW. It is a great honor to the work of the Lord.

Angela said...

Wow, what a wonderful, God-inspired idea. Thank you for making good come of evil.

I, too, think you should use the old button.

Stewart Family said...

Hey Misty! I did it...I cut my hair off today. I posted about it and left a link to your post about living with short hair. Thanks for inspiring me to just go for it!!

Lianna Knight said...

I think this is a GREAT idea :)

Please pray for my husband's job. He is having a hard time making a sell right now and he is the HARDEST working person I have ever met!!! Please pray that he gets over this hump and that he receives a sense of peace knowing that God will take care of us.

Thanks again :)

Misty,

I came to your site reading all of the "drama-rama" on all of the other sites and I am so thrilled that the Lord brought me here. Your blog is awesome and I love that you put the focus on the Lord and on glorifying Him.

Prayer request - I am a single mama of 3 kids and have been out of work for the past 2 months. I had a very positive interview yesterday for a job that I feel would be a good fit for my family. Please pray that if it where the Lord wants me it will come to fruition. I should hear by tomorrow.

Thanks and much love and prayers to you.

Misty, how wonderful for you to keep doing this! What a blessing!

I have a small prayer request of my own - I will be having a scheduled c-section this Tues (June 16th) to deliver my 3rd baby, our little boy. I'd just like to request prayer that everything goes smoothly & our little Joshua is completely healthy (so far, so good Praise God!.) Also for a fast recovery for myself so I can get back to being a wife and mom to my husband and other 2 children. Thank you so much!
