175 Words of Life

Anni at Hootin' Anni's has challenged anyone who would like to take part to a 175 Word Challenge. Anni has a very cool word counter that you can use to write an event about your life. The word counter counts the words as you type them and then you can edit the words to fit the word count.

So without further ado.........

1965... England. Summer vacation. We decided to take a boat tour to seal island. Water looked pretty calm so on board we climbed. My son Darryl was 6 months old. Out of the harbor and into the open sea.........

...It was a whole new ballgame then. Water was very rough. Halfway to seal island sea swells were higher than the rickety old boat. The Captain was beginning to get a bit fidgety. People began to cry and they were grabbing anything that would float. My dear friend Ivan took Darryl, looked at me and said "I will get Darryl to shore, I promise".....I relinquished hold of my son and began to remove my shoes.
..........By now we had circled the island and we were headed back. We were joined by British coast guard following at a safe distance. I knew that help was just a short distance away but the sheer terror of the moment canceled out all rational thought. I kissed the ground when we stepped off the boat that day.I will never do that again!

Having Done All............. FAST


.... I have prayed... I have rebuked...... I have bound the enemy from this situation and I have loosed the promises in to this situation... ...... I have resisted and I have stood in the gap.. ....... I have prayed the effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man.. and wondered how effectual or fervent it has been.

......I have taken scriptures that applied to the situation and I have added the right name..... I have prayed those scriptures over and over and I have put those scriptures on 3x5 cards and carried them with me everywhere... I have prayed in the natural and I have prayed in the spirit... I have prayed during the day all day as I cleaned and I have laid in bed at night and prayed.......................... I have prayed that God close doors and open windows, only for the doors to be kicked open and the windows closed and the shutters drawn.


...... I have laid on the flood and sobbed until there were no more tears........ I have fought like a warrior with the sword of the word and my righteous indignation has risen to fever pitch. I have curled up in the lap of my Father as a child and just rested from my labor.


.......I have marched up and down in my home with my word of God in one hand and shaking my fist in the face of the enemy that keep pushing in to destroy... ....... I have been careful not to use vain repetition and I have studied to know that am praying within the boundaries of His will...


....... I have called my friends and I have requested prayer and in every church I have ever been in this request has been laid at the alter.. I have written this request on paper and placed it in my bible on pages where the answer lies....................... I have prayed and reminded God of His word.. I have petitioned Him to perform that which He has promised.........

......I have performed these things and prayed these prayers for over 15 years now.............( I am a persistent little gal) I will not give up and in fact I feel that the warrior in me is gaining strength and I know that the Father God will soon answer........

..... This is not about health, it is not about money.... it is about choices in life and about a person that I love more than life. It is about God's perfect will and not God's permitted will.......
...I wonder is there such a thing? I have been in the permissive will and it is not pretty.........

....It is about the camp of the enemy coming in to disrupt the last 15 years of petitions that have gone up to the Father..... It serious.... It is my responsibility to pray and pray effectually ...... It is ...........
........However............... after having done all and now with critical hour approaching I am being nudged by the Holy Spirit.......... He is whispering to me........................ FAST..........

I will fast............ and I will see God move......
