Join The World In Prayer

https://web-assets.youversion.com/html-email/2020-03-prayer-of-the-day-world/img/prayer-of-the-day-world-sharable.jpg
Do not forget that our Lord is a warrior,
He didn't bring this on us,
but he will use it for good.
That is what he does . . .
I know that is hard to believe right now,
especially if you are not a Christian.

Think of it this way:
The Bible is a history book of facts 
that has out lived 
any other book by centuries.
Why do you suppose that is?

While you're quarantined:
Download the movie
 "God Is Not Dead" 
2014 - PG 
and read
Romans 8:28

If you don't have a bible,
I know you have the internet
or you wouldn't be here.
You can read the bible that way.

What better way to spend your time
than to do your own search.

I know that times are bad 
for all of us right now. 
Make this day count,
and 
Keep Smiling!

Taking A Break


Taking a break from blogging
for awhile.


Thank you for your prayers.

I could use prayer right now
and 
when you think of me . . .
send me a hug in your thoughts.

Your blogging sister,
Connie

I will be reading comments,
but not posting them.

Thank You Jesus




I received this email from my nephew today.
I don't normally post forwards ,
but this was very special.

His wife is also fighting cancer and doing
chemo and radiation treatments.

Her name is Donna and if you pray for her
the Lord knows her needs.

I believe that He rejoices when He hears our prayers
given with love and caring hearts,
especially when it is for others that we don't even know personally.

I dreamt that I went to Heaven and an angel was showing me around. We walked side-by-side inside a large workroom filled with angels. My angel guide stopped in front of the first section and said, "This is the Receiving Section. Here, all petitions to God said in prayer are received."

I looked around in this area, and it was terribly busy with so many angels sorting out petitions written on voluminous  paper sheets and scraps from people all over the  world.

Then we moved on down a long corridor until we reached the second section.

The angel then said to me, "This is the Packaging and Delivery Section. Here, the graces and blessings the people asked for are processed and delivered to the living persons who asked for them." I noticed again how busy it was there. There were many angels working hard at that station, since so many blessings had been requested and were being packaged for delivery to Earth.

Finally, at the farthest end of the long corridor we stopped at the door of a very small station. To my great surprise, only one angel was seated there, idly doing nothing. "This is the Acknowledgment Section," my angel friend quietly admitted to me. He seemed embarrassed.  
"How is it that there is no work going on here?" I asked.

"So sad," the angel sighed. "After people receive the blessings that they asked for, very few send back acknowledgments."

"How does one acknowledge God's blessings? "I asked.
"Simple," the angel answered. Just say, "Thank you, Lord."

"What blessings should they acknowledge?" I asked.

"If you have food in the refrigerator, clothes on your back, a roof overhead and a place to sleep,  you are richer than 75% of this  world.   If  you have money in the bank, in your wallet, and  spare change in a dish, you are among the top 8%  of the world's wealthy, and if you get this on  your own computer, you are part of the 1% in the  world who has that opportunity."

"If  you woke up this morning with more health than  illness.. You are more blessed than the many who will not even survive this day."

"If you have never experienced the fear in battle, the loneliness of imprisonment, the  agony of torture, or the pangs of starvation...  You are ahead of 700 million people in the  world."

"If  you can attend a church without the fear of  harassment, arrest, torture or death you are  envied by, and more blessed than, three billion  people in the world."

"If you can hold your head up and smile, you are not the norm, you're unique to all  those in doubt and despair......."

"Ok," I said. "What now? How can I start?"

The Angel said, "If you can read this message, you just  received a double blessing in that someone  was thinking of you as very special and you are  more blessed than over two billion people in the  world who cannot read at all."

Have a good day, count your blessings,  and if you care to, pass this along to remind  everyone else how blessed we all  are..........


ATTN:   Acknowledge  Dept .
"Thank  you Lord, for giving me the ability to share  this message and for giving me so many wonderful  people with whom to share it."

I hope this blessed you 
as it did me this morning. 

Have a lovely day.
