Special Prayer Request for a Sister in Need

August 31, 2013

Reblogging this from Patricia/ Loopy’s. Prayer request for a troubled sister in Christ. When we pull together as His body we lift one another up but most importantly we glorify Him and reflect His glory on those around us. Amen?

Revelations In Writing

One DayThere will come a day,

when we all shall hear,

each creature singing,

of the Lord, who’s near.

All those in heaven,

and all too, on earth;

sing of His praises,

and His matchless worth.

Seated on the throne,

God’s own holy Lamb;

all offered to Him,

glorious I Am.

All praise and honor,

power and glory;

may we forever,

speak of His story.

Imagine the day,

when we see His face;

joy unimagined,

held in His embrace.

Oh Lord, let our lives,

be sweet offering;

let our days be spent,

honoring You, King.

“Then I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and on the sea, and all that is in them, singing; ‘To Him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb, be praise and honor and glory and power, for ever and ever!” – (Revelation 5:13)

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You…

sunflowerHave you ever wondered WHY things happen to you?  I mean, I am pretty sure we all do.  But that moment where you say, “Why do I have to go thru this?”  You may ask God that question or you may just pose it to yourself…or the cosmos.

Today, I learned a little bit about why I have been through all the things of the past couple of years.  The doctors, the hospitals, the caring for others, the EMS calls, the hospice connection, dementia….

Mom found an old man (by her terms…and she’s 85) who had fallen up the street in front of a door of one of our neighborhood houses.  She isn’t strong enough to help him so I went up to try.  There I found a confused and disoriented gentleman, clearly elderly, sitting on the ground in front of a front door.

I tried to get a handle…

He Loves Me Anyway . . .

Psalm 139

King James Version (KJV)

139 O lord, thou hast searched me, and known me.

2 Thou knowest my downsitting and mine uprising, thou understandest my thought afar off.

3 Thou compassest my path and my lying down, and art acquainted with all my ways.

4 For there is not a word in my tongue, but, lo, O Lord, thou knowest it altogether.

5 Thou hast beset me behind and before, and laid thine hand upon me.

6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high, I cannot attain unto it.

7 Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence?

8 If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there.

9 If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea;

10 Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me.

11 If I say, Surely the darkness shall cover me; even the night shall be light about me.

12 Yea, the darkness hideth not from thee; but the night shineth as the day: the darkness and the light are both alike to thee.

13 For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother’s womb.

14 I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.

15 My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.

16 Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.

17 How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them!

18 If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand: when I awake, I am still with thee.

19 Surely thou wilt slay the wicked, O God: depart from me therefore, ye bloody men.

20 For they speak against thee wickedly, and thine enemies take thy name in vain.

21 Do not I hate them, O Lord, that hate thee? and am not I grieved with those that rise up against thee?

22 I hate them with perfect hatred: I count them mine enemies.

23 Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts:

24 And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.

Wow. eye opening!


bu_043013_bThis survey by the Barna Group is worth a glance if it causes us to reflect on who others see in us; Jesus or Pharisee?

By the time I had made it through the article I was questioning some of my own attitudes and actions. As much as I didn’t want to admit it, it appears there may be a little  more Pharisee residing in this heart of mine than Kingdom living allows. Here’s a sampling, and the entire article with some neat charts can be found here.

Actions like Jesus:

  • I listen to others to learn their story before telling them about my faith.
  • In recent years, I have influenced multiple people to consider following Christ.
  • I regularly choose to have meals with people with very different faith or morals from me.
  • I try to discover the needs of non-Christians rather than waiting for them to come to me.
