Overcomer

“That day when evening came, Jesus said to his disciples.,” Let us go over the other side.” Leaving the crowd behind, they took along, just as he was, in the boat. There were also other boats with him. A furious storm came up, and the waves broke  over the boat, so that it was nearly swamped. Jesus was in the stern, sleeping on a cushion. The disciples woke him and said to him, “Teacher, don’t you care if we drown. He got up, rebuked the wind and said to the waves, “Peace! Be Still” Then the wind dies down and it was completely calm. He said to his disciples “Why are you so afraid? Do you still have no faith? They were terrified and asked each other. “Who is this? Even the wind and the waves obey him!”                                                        Mark 4:35-41 NIV                                       These words in the Gospel of Mark, talked about Jesus’ disciples who became so afraid because of the storm that they were facing, reminded me with the storms we all face during different times of our lives. No one here on earth is ever perfect neither is their lives, oh yes they may tell you everything is wonderful, but truth can be told not really. When we are children most of us can say that while growing up you had no worries at all, we ran and play, attend school, and perhaps church, until a storm becomes so real to us. Perhaps during all of your childhood you didn’t face some kind of tragedy, but eventually you will, just like all of us do. It is the way we all seem to handle life storms, do we run and hide, and cry out Lord save me!, sounds familiar to you, I have said this and perhaps you as well. Many such storms are the death of someone you loved very much and you feel as through you simply can not go on, overtime with God’s help you will be an overcomer. When financial difficulties come around and you simply don’t know how you are going to make this months bills, and somehow you do, that is when you are an overcomer. Sickness for you or someone you love, such as myself with a child with chronic illness and more than one. I try to remind myself in the middle of the storm that is going crazy all around me, just to ‘BE STILL AND KNOW THAT I AM GOD”

 

Does God Cares

Ephesians 3.pngThru many tears and searching scriptures many times, is the same old question we seem to be saying does God really care. We at times seem to say does God hear me when I cry myself to sleep, or the frustration I seem to carry inside of me of wondering about this months bills, Does He care when I see the pain in the eyes of my child when the doctors don’t seem to know how to be able to treat her, or does he even care when someone hurts you so deep within your soul, and you simply and truly don’t understand. Does God cares when others treat his world so terribly and where too many people hate, and we all wondering where is this peace on earth we hear so much of.  Let me share with all of you YES GOD CARES! He understand your pain as well as mine, he watch his son being beaten and crucified to die for our sins. If we look into the old testament to Isaiah 41:10 it says: So do not fear, for I am with you, do not be dismayed, for I am your God, I will strength you and help you. I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. I recently read here on the internet about a little girl who’s dog had died, just read the following

Our 14-year-old dog Abbey died last month. The day after she passed away my 4-year-old daughter Meredith was crying and talking about how much she missed Abbey. She asked if we could write a letter to God so that when Abbey got to heaven, God would recognize her. I told her that I thought we could so, and she dictated these words:

Dear God,

Will you please take care of my dog? She died yesterday and is with you in heaven. I miss her very much. I am happy that you let me have her as my dog even though she got sick. I hope you will play with her. She likes to swim and play with balls. I am sending a picture of her so when you see her you will know that she is my dog. I really miss her.

Love, Meredith

We put the letter in an envelope with a picture of Abbey and Meredith and addressed it to God/Heaven. We put our return address on it. Then Meredith pasted several stamps on the front of the envelope because she said it would take lots of stamps to get the letter all the way to heaven. That afternoon she dropped it into the letter box at the post office. A few days later, she asked if God had gotten the letter yet. I told her that I thought He had.

Yesterday, there was a package wrapped in gold paper on our front porch addressed: “To Meredith” in an unfamiliar hand. Meredith opened it. Inside was a book by Mr. Rogers called, ‘When a Pet Dies.’ Taped to the inside front cover was the letter we had written to God in its opened envelope. On the opposite page was the picture of Abbey & Meredith and this note:

Dear Meredith,

Abbey arrived safely in heaven. Having the picture was a big help and I recognized her right away. Abbey isn’t sick anymore. Her spirit is here with me just like it stays in your heart. Abbey loved being your dog. Since we don’t need our bodies in heaven, I don’t have any pockets to keep your picture in so I am sending it back to you in this little book for you to keep and have something to remember Abbey by.

Thank you for the beautiful letter and Thank your Mother for helping you write it and sending it to me. What a wonderful mother you have!!!

I picked her especially for you. I send my blessings every day and Remember that I Love You Very Much. By the way, I’m easy to find.

I AM WHEREVER THERE IS LOVE!!!

With Much Love … ❤ GOD ❤

Don’t Say You’re Too Busy To Share This …

Just Go Ahead And “DO IT”!!!

🙂 “MAY GOD BLESS YOUR LIFE ALSO”!!! 🙂

As I read this letter from a mom and her little girl it brought tears to my eyes while reading it, because all through out scriptures we can see how much God truly cares for his children, I do hope that you enjoy reading it.

 

Grace and Peace to You My Friends
