Thankful for the wisdom of the elders around us. Apostle Norwood said this weekend it doesn’t take long, drawn out prayers for God to move. Sometimes all it takes is a simple prayer in faith like “Lord strengthen him/her”. Our pastor, Bishop Crutchfield, said a few weeks ago in a sermon to just apply the oil and let it work. We can leave all the other antics out, and simply trust God to do just what He said He would do!
Sharing one of my Facebook post from September 15, 2014…
Until God says it is finished/completed don’t give up or quit believing, trusting, and praying for your situation or circumstance. You never know, that ending/change that appears to be final, undesirable, or sad just might be the beginning of something great in your life that will lead to an unexpected victory or opportunity. Remember the cross? Jesus said it is finished, and little did the enemy know what great thing had just taken place. Seek God on today, and if He says it is finished trust Him and release that thing so that you can grab a hold of what is yet to come.
Sharing a Facebook memory I posted on September 12, 2017…
In everything give thanks. My uncle sent me a last minute reminder about our family reunion “just because”, although he said he knew we probably couldn’t come. However, for the first time in years it worked out that my husband was off and my kids were out of school. This never happens. We decided to come home and surprise everyone when we received the reminder from him.
I am so thankful we did because it allowed me to see and hug my grandmother one last time. I am thankful for a God who cares about us, and even in this allowed it to be so. It was on my mind at one point during our final service together to take a video/picture of her at church, but after dismissal I did not, so instead I will have to hold the memory of that day in my heart.
If it is on your heart to send a text, call, post a message on facebook, etc.than just do it. Your facebook post may be for just one person, but that’s enough. The good shepherd left all to find the one that was lost. You may be laughed at, talked about, ignored, and put down when you do, but if your message reaches the one it was meant for than it is worth it all. I realize when I post bible verses, devotionals, etc. it is not for everyone (or probably even most), but if it reaches that one than that’s okay!
Hold your loved ones close, take the pictures and videos, make the calls, get yourself right with the Lord today, because tomorrow is not promised. Enjoy and give thanks for what you have today, no matter how great or small. Be blessed everyone, and enjoy today!!
