March 31st – Reflect and Meditate

Pray at all times, on every occasion, in every season in the Spirit, with all manner of prayer and entreaty.  To that end, keep alert and watch with strong purpose and perseverance, interceding in behalf of all the saints; God’s consecrated people.

Ephesians 6:18

As we close this month, let us stop and take a moment to go back through the prayer requests and lift them up in prayer.  If anyone has an update or praise report, please put it on the site or pass along the information to me so I can post it.  I thank everyone for their diligence and commitment to pray.  God bless you and keep you in His care.  May the peace that surpasses all understanding be yours today and always.

Love in Christ

March 30th – God has your back

When you go forth to battle against your enemies, and see horses and chariots and an army greater than your own, do not be afraid of them for the Lord your God, Who brought you out of the land of Egypt, is with you. 

And when you come near to the battle, the priest shall approach and speak to the men, and shall say to them, Hear, O Israel, you draw near this day to battle against your enemies.  Let not your minds and hearts faint; fear not, and do not and tremble or be terrified and in dread because of them.

For the Lord your God is He, Who goes with you to fight for you against your enemies to save you.

-Deuteronomy 20:1-4 Amplified Bible

March 29th – Amazing Love

Amazing Love

I’m forgiven, because You were forsaken,
I’m accepted, because You were condemned.
I am alive and well, and Your spirit is within me,
Because You died and rose again.

Amazing love, How can it be?
That You, my King would die for me?
Amazing love, I know it’s true.
It’s my joy to honor You,
In all I do, I honor You.

-Billy James Foote

Deb

I would like to ask everyone to lift my friend Deb up in prayer.  She once claimed she could never stop smoking, and today I learned that she has decided to quit smoking after many, many years.   Praise God!!  She is such a good hearted person and a blessing to everyone who knows her.  Please pray that God restores her to perfection.  Deb is a very compassionate person and has a calling on her to minister to people who are sick, elderly or in need.  She is devoted to her family and friends and puts their needs above hers.  Ask God to bless her with the desires of her heart and give her inner peace and strengthen her faith to step out and become all that God has planned for her to be.  In Jesus’ name, AMEN.

Daniele

Daniele called me today to say that she has an interview on this Thursday with CHOP, Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia!  Praise be to God.  I thank everyone for their prayers and ask you to pray for favor with each person that will interview her.  She told me that there will be 3 interviewers and they will each spend an hour with her.  WOW!  She needs an excellent looking and great fitting suit, so please ask for favor finding something in her price range.  I’ll continue to keep you posted.  Thanks again for all your prayers.

March 28th – You will reap what you sow

The Emperor’s Seed  

If you plant honesty, you will reap trust.
If you plant goodness, you will reap friends.
If you plant humility, you will reap greatness.
If you plant perseverance, you will reap victory.
If you plant consideration, you will reap harmony.
If you plant hard work, you will reap success.
If you plant forgiveness, you will reap reconciliation.
If you plant openness, you will reap intimacy.
If you plant patience, you will reap improvements.
If you plant faith, you will reap miracles.

But:

If you plant dishonesty, you will reap distrust.
If you plant selfishness, you will reap loneliness.
If you plant pride, you will reap destruction.
If you plant envy, you will reap trouble.
If you plant laziness, you will reap stagnation.
If you plant bitterness, you will reap isolation.
If you plant greed, you will reap loss.
If you plant gossip, you will reap enemies.
If you plant worries, you will reap wrinkles.


If you plant sin, you will reap guilt.
So be careful what you plant now, it will determine what you will reap tomorrow.  The seeds you now scatter will make life worse or better your life or the ones who will come after.  Yes, someday, you will enjoy the fruits, or you will pay for the choices you plant today.

March 27th – Good Words

To the world you might be one person, but to one person you might be the world.

Going to church does not make you a Christian anymore than going to McDonalds makes you a hamburger.

Real friends are those, who when you feel you’ve made a fool of yourself; don’t feel you’ve done a permanent job.

A coincidence is when God performs a miracle, and decides to remain anonymous.

Sometimes the majority only means that all the fools are on the same side.

I don’t have to attend every argument I’m invited to.

Lead your life so you won’t be ashamed to sell the family parrot to the town gossip.

People gather bundles of sticks to build bridges they never cross.

Life is 10% of what happens to you, and 90% of how you respond to it.

Did it ever occur to you that nothing occurs to God?

Life is like an onion; you peel off one layer at a time, and sometimes you weep.

Learn from the mistakes of others, you can’t live long enough to make them all yourself.

There are two things I’ve learned: there is a God; and, I’m not Him.

Following the path of least resistance is what makes rivers and people crooked.

Your worst days are never so bad that you are beyond the reach of God’s grace.  And your best days are never so good that you are beyond the need of God’s grace.

When it comes time to die…make sure all you got to do is die.

Don’t be afraid to learn; knowledge is weightless; a treasure you can always carry easily.
