“Lord, prop us up on our leanin' side.”

joetoddsays  Like the barn I've withstood a lot of life's storms. I've withstood a lot of bad weather in life, I've withstood a lot of hard times, and I'm still standing too. But I find myself leaning to one side from time to time, so I like to ask the Lord to prop us up on our leaning side, 'cause I figure a lot of us get to leaning at times.

Sometimes we get to Leaning toward anger

Sometimes we get to Leaning toward a lot of things that we shouldn't.

So we need to pray, “Lord, prop us up on our leaning side, So we will stand straight and tall again, To glorify the Lord.'' I don’t know about you but I’ve done a lot of leaning in my life but not so much anymore. Actually, I’ve been able to help with some propping and I attribute that ability to prayers like this and GRACE.

Great post, Joe Todd... Love those pictures of you and Linda in your header.

YES--we definitely need God in our lives to help us stand straight --and not lean on bitterness, hatred and anger...

Great 'leaning' barn!!!!

Nothing wrong with that barn that a lick of paint won't fix :)

Wonderful prayer! The barn is fantastic & I'd sure like to get inside & explore, tho, I'm not sure it's safe! =0
