Be blessed and bless others!

Good afternoon to all! I pray that our Lord continues to bless each and everyone of you. As for me, I am still going through my journey. Life is full of ups and downs but lately, it’s been mostly down for me. The words today from Pastor Rick Warren reminds me that it isn’t about me and my struggles in life. It is about Jesus and what I can do for my God that has done everything for me. You may say “how can he say that when he just said that life has been a struggle” and you would be right to question me. My response is this… no matter how low I get, someone is going thru something worst than me. No matter how lost i feel in this world, in Jesus I have hope. I am secured. I am guaranteed. I pray that we all have this feeling with Christ.

If you have any questions about ANY of this, please ask them. We are all here to bring God the glory. Have a great rest of the day. In Jesus name… PJSLB

Nightly Prayer – 01/03/18

I thank you lord for my family. I thank you lord for being patient with me as I had my brief weakness about when is it my time. I pray for the girls as they go back to school. I know lord that you are ALWAYS with us and that in your due time, blessings beyond imagination will come upon myself and my family. I pray for TXXXXX as she is going thru some bad times. I pray for MXXX that he does the right thing. I pray for RXXXand the kind heart you have instilled him him. As a door closes, I know that you will open another. I thank you lord for this. In Jesus Name, Amen.

Being persistent with God

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

Putting problems into perspective 

I am surrounded by uncertainty. I know not what tomorrow holds. The only thing I am sure of is that my Lord lives and that no matter how painful life is in this earth it is but a fraction of a second in comparison to eternity with our God. When I remind myself about this, my heart is at ease. I pray that is the same with you. PSJLB
