Reading the headlines

As I follow the news headlines I am each day more grateful than the day before that I know Christ as my Lord and Saviour. Our country is in serious trouble folks our leaders are forgetting "In God We Trust", they are forgetting what our founding fathers held so dearly in their hearts. Why are we moving so much further from the truth? Is the truth too hard for us to follow? Becausing believing and following God's word is not for the lazy... it takes daily interaction, hard work, dedication, belief... it means stepping outside our comfort zone to reach out and help another. It means giving up the "it's all about ME" attitude and saying it's all about the Lord... it's all about US helping EACH OTHER to regain control of this declining society that is being created in the U.S.

Brothers and sisters won't you help me... reach out... lend a hand. Help a friend, better yet help and stranger... pray for them... speak to them of the love of Christ. Awaken...

Amazing Grace

The mighty power of Christ has been working in my life in gentle hues and bright bold colors. I never know from one day to the next which is will be but I know I will see his work somewhere around me, dealing directly with my life journey. Praise God!!!

I find such a joy in giving to others, a joy, pure joy. Whether it's time, or gifts it doesn't matter to me, just being able to give whatever I have makes me feel peaceful. I am grateful to be in a position where my heart is free to give itself as the Lord calls me. There was a time when I was wrapped in such despair, fear and pain that I could barely look myself in the mirror, barely walk out my front door. The Lord has lifted me higher than I ever imagined possible.
