I am taking an extended sabbatical from a few of my blogs, but I plan to continue posts at main blog, GARDEN2DAY. I wish everyone much happiness and many blessings! Take care and God bless! 😀

I didn’t mean to neglect my blog. The trials I have been going through have not slowed down but have re-manifested themselves into other things that I am trying hard to deal with. In my younger days I could do so much like a circus performer with those spinning plates but now I have a tough time getting just one plate to spin… 😀 

 

I semi-joke that Job has become my buddy this past year. The trials of Job were great—immense. If nothing else, they are there for us to learn from. The book of Job is not a quick study like it seems and neither are “great” trials. Perseverance and patience..we must learn to wait on the Lord. In His good time—and not ours.

 

We have to be ready to hear God’s message. Many times we don’t hear because we are not listening fully. Elihu was the young friend who prepared Job for His talk with God. God uses messengers, physical people, to prepare us for what He is about to reveal. I suspect that most messengers have no clue at what role they play in God’s plan and desire for us. I have had quite a few of these messengers along the way, especially lately…a great many these past few weeks. Of course, one must discern if the message is divine or from some other source—not easy to be sure sometimes but it is critical that we know.

 

In essence we are all messengers in some way. If we walk with God, we can be messengers for God. If don’t walk with Him, we can become messengers for evil even when we seem to be doing good. Here is to being a messenger for God and serving Him. May you walk with God always!

I need your help if you would. I will be so grateful…

 

“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.

“Which of you, if your son asks for bread, will give him a stone? 10 Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a snake? 11 If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him! 12 So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets.  —  Matthew 7 (NIV)

 

19 “Again, truly I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything they ask for, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. 20 For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.”  —  Matthew 18 (NIV)

 

There is a certain man whom I have asked to spend 5 minutes of his day each morning and 5 minutes each night praying. In each of his prayers I have asked him to find 5 things that he sees as blessings in his life. This is an attempt to get him back to the altar of God. Now, I can ask this of him until I am blue in the face. I can’t make him do anything he doesn’t want to do. However, I know that if this man opens his heart and turns it toward God, he will be redeemed and renewed. He has to have a true heart and he has to make time for this. It is a sacrifice. It is obedience not to me but to God. Can he do it? It is up to him.

 

I would like to ask you to pray every morning and every night if you will that this man will do this, for his protection, and for help to overcome his demons. I ask you to pray that this man’s heart be opened up to God. He is lost. He used to know right from wrong but he has forgotten what it is like to walk with God or as close as it gets in this world. This is for this man and his family particularly his children. He used to care so deeply for others that he was willing to give others the shirt from his back.

 

I have seen miracles happen so I know anything can happen provided it is God’s Will. Please pray that he opens his heart before God and receives HIM and then is protected to do His Will so that God will be glorified.

 

Belief —  Faith  — Prayer

Repeat until answered and thanksgiving when it is.

 

This is nothing short of a miracle. I feel compelled to ask this. Thank you! From the bottom of my heart—thank you!

This man is my husband. I know how far he has fallen.

 

May you be so very blessed–always and forever! 😀
