  1. Praying for our Father to touch your mom with His healing power and provide for all her needs, cjen. Cast all your worry and fear and anxiety on Him, for He cares for all of you.
  2. Father, we praise You for this promise... that because of Jesus we have hope and comfort from all the sin and suffering and loss in this world. Please surround our sister Turtletwo's family with love and support And comfort them in their grief. Thank You for making a way for the family to be together. In Jesus' name, Amen.
  3. Father, we know You are close to Precious Pearl at this very moment, and You are longing to be gracious and comfort her with Your presence.

  4. Almighty Father, we put all our hope and trust in Your power to break the chain of addiction binding East Sky. You have been bringing Your people out of darkness since time began, and You are still at work in us. We ask that Your power will overcome in this situation and free East Sky for Your glory! In Jesus' precious name, we pray... Amen.
  5. It's nor too soon to be singing Jesus Loves Me.... baby can hear his mama's voice! Singing might make you feel calmer, too. God bless!
  6. Jo Ash, you seem to be expressing great discouragement and disappointment that you have not been blessed as others around you have, even though you have worked very hard. If we are always looking around at what others have (especially as they present their lives on social media), it's easy to believe what satan wants you to believe--that life has been unfair to you. In Christ, you can say no to that lie and refuse to believe it. You are unique; God made only one of you with your own talents and abilities to do the work He prepared for you to do--not what He prepared for anyone else. Life IS hard for some people (actually, for many people), but don't be discouraged. Live with your eyes fixed on Christ and what He has done for you. His finished work on the cross makes every hardship in this life a TEMPORARY burden. We have victory in Jesus! Consider the words of Paul, whose life even in Christ was very difficult: 2 Corinthians 4:7-11 English Standard Version (ESV) Treasure in Jars of Clay 7 But we have this treasure in jars of clay, to show that the surpassing power belongs to God and not to us. 8 We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair; 9 persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed; 10 always carrying in the body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be manifested in our bodies.11 For we who live are always being given over to death for Jesus' sake, so that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal flesh. Father, we ask that you comfort Jo Ash and fill Him with Your Light so that others can see Your power in his life. We ask in Jesus' name and for Your glory... Amen.

  12. Hi Jack! Welcome to the family of believers! We are so happy you've joined us in making Jesus the Lord of your life. It was the best decision you ever could have made, and reaching out for support and encouragement as you begin your Christian walk was also a wise decision. You've had great suggestions here about choosing a good translation of the Bible. You're on a roll with good decisions, so I know you'll find one you're comfortable reading. I've read many, and my favorites are ESV and NKJV, but I love to compare translations sometimes. For convenience, I have the Bible Gateway app. It's awesome, and I highly recommend it. Whichever you choose, may God bless you with more and more understanding and revelation every day so that you will grow "like a tree planted by the waters that sends out its roots by the stream, and does not fear when heat comes, for its leaves remain green, and is not anxious in the year of drought, for it does not cease to bear fruit" (Jeremiah 17:8). God bless!
  13. Happy anniversary, Mr. and Mrs. Neighbor.... and many, many more! God bless!
  14. Even Christians suffer disappointment at times--people who are strong in faith, people who read their Bibles every day, people who believe with all their hearts. All can suffer disappointments and become discouraged. God knows this about us and CALLS us to come alongside those we see who are suffering and offer His joy, His peace, His wisdom.... whatever is needed in that particular situation. The Holy Spirit guides and helps, and I believe, gives certain of His own a special gift for encouraging others. I saw it happen today! Sonshine and I met at the gym to work out this morning. (She has been my encouragement to stay healthy in this way for 20 years now.) We were doing multiple sets of straight-arm pulldowns on the cable machine. Across the room, a trio of women was doing ball slams, essentially working the same muscles we were. One of those ladies was a friend we have known for many years who struggles with her weight and has been through many periods of discouragement and disappointment in the past. I'll call her Kate. Sonshine, who noticed that Kate was slowing down, said with great enthusiasm, "Hey, Kate, do you realize that this exercise Promises and I are doing is working the same muscle you are? Look! It's the same movement! Let me show you... come over here and try it!" Kate walked slowly toward us. "Really?" she asked. Then she pointed to a huge swollen place on her bottom lip. "I literally just did this! The ball just bounced up and hit me in the mouth!" She DEFINITELY needed both encouragement and another way to work her back muscles! Sonshine showed her what to do and she worked in a set with us. Her two friends joined us and also learned a SAFER, smoother, better way to accomplish what they had been trying to do. One of them even commented that this new way didn't hurt her shoulder as the ball slams had. Sonshine and I agreed later over coffee that the Holy Spirit had motivated the entire exchange, just to prevent Kate from becoming discouraged and giving up again. She may have to deal with a sore mouth over the next few days, but she won't let it stop her from working out. What a blessing Sonshine has been given to USE her gift of encouragement to help someone on the brink of disappointment! I believe we ALL have this gift, some to a greater extent than others, but we can make a difference when we actually look around us and put it to use.
