I remember as a child wanting a Nintendo entertainment system. My mom would say no but that never stopped me from asking. I was not deterred with all the “no’s.”
On my birthday I opened my gift only to see the one thing that I have been asking for the longest time…a Nintendo Entertainment System!
I was persistent and kept asking my mom even when I knew she would say no. But my mom and her love for me chose the perfect time to give the thing I wanted more than anything.
Why is it that when we ask God for something and we do not receive it immediately, we give up asking? If our earthly parents would give to us then surely our Heavenly Father would do a million times more. KEEP ASKING! PJSLB
Christmas is full of joy and laughter. A chance to be with family, friends and loved ones. Christmas is also a time of painful goodbyes and memories of years past.
This past month my parents came over for the holiday season and after not seeing them for over two years, I had such fun having them around. This morning I dropped them off to the airport so they can play “tourist” for a week; visiting some beautiful places out country has to offer. Although, I will see them in a week my heart still hurts.
When enjoying the Holiday season with your loved ones, keep an eye out on those who are missing someone. Be compassionate and be a keeper of you fellow brothers and sisters. God Bless. PJSLB
I was in the 6th grade and i gave my life over to Jesus. It was a scary time because i was afraid to tell my parents that I am now a Christian. Actually, it wasn’t until college when I was finally able to tell them about my faith in Christ. I cannot tell you the exact time and day that i was saved. I can tell you what was the first verse that i ever memorized. Back then (and today) this was a verse that spoke to me. It was everything that i was looking for all nicely wrapped up in just a few words. It was a reminded that with Jesus ANYTHING is possible. It spoke to the inner child in me. A child seeking something from his father. Recently, my daughter asked me what was my favorite bible verse. With that question, Matthew 7:7 and how it held my faith together at such a young age was brought back into the family.
What’s your favorite bible verse?
