*Good morning sisters
Wednesday again…how did that happen?
Steph…you're so right…I remember Joyce saying that conferences and her messages etc do not count for time spent with God…we are so like that…attend church, or listen to a conference and we feel that we have done our 'spiritual duty…' Thank God the police moved quickly..this is a dangerous world!
Annette…you don't need to be a fighter…just hide behind your Father . I admire people who realize their weakness…I am on the other spectrum…I often rely on my own strength until I'm too far gone and have to be really corrected by God. I'm the type that has to be reminded that I can't go it alone Thank God for his patience with me…I once lost our new church's keys …in the moment I totally knew it was God correcting me for my pride. A visiting pastor prayed with me that I would find it and I told him that I knew we wouldn't because I recognized it right away as a correction.
Erika: so glad to see you on Facebook. Thank you for your prayers for Mimi. My sis and I aren't really that close. She holds everything in and only tells me things usually after the fact. She told me yesterday that Mimi has been getting drunk or high once a week…she went to rehab last year and spent 6 months there. I'm so sad for her. She also has a personality disorder…she feels better, goes off her meds, and then spirals down. My sis came to prayer on Friday night for the first time in a long time. She could barely get the words out...
14 For this reason I fall on my knees before the Father, 15 from whom every family in heaven and on earth receives its true name. 16 I ask God from the wealth of his glory to give you power through his Spirit to be strong in your inner selves, 17 and I pray that Christ will make his home in your hearts through faith. I pray that you may have your roots and foundation in love, 18 so that you, together with all God's people, may have the power to understand how broad and long, how high and deep, is Christ's love. 19 Yes, may you come to know his love - although it can never be fully known - and so be completely filled with the very nature of God. 20 To him who by means of his power working in us is able to do so much more than we can ever ask for, or even think of: 21to God be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus for all time, forever and ever! Amen.
Father, thank you that you hold all our cares in Your hands…thank you that you measure our difficulties and do whatever it takes to keep us close…Lord I ask your blessings on our children. Father you see Samantha..you see she is on the brink of starting a relationship. Please bless this boy and let him come to you…please let Sammie remember the promise she made to you…
Father, take care of Mimi…lead her back to you and strengthen Pam and Louis that they may not fall away from you .
Lord, bless Steph, Erika and Annette…Lord how wonderful it is to have sisters with whom to share…thank You!
Victory = series of right choices....
Nothing tastes as good as Peace feels!
God bless you and yours!
