We Must Not Fail, Keep the Faith! Comfort for the weary

In Memory of my father

By "failing" I mean we must not give up nor fail what God has intended for us to accomplish in our lives. We are here for a reason and everyday we have an opportunity and to use many new opportunities to make a difference in our lives and others.

Even if we are alone we can pray; and if we help our neighbor in ways like

  • feeding the needy
  • giving direction to the spiritually lost
  • providing encouragement by a smile or kind word

We know these little things are important everyday.


Dear Father in Heaven

We thank you for your grace

life's toils

burden us

make us tired

and weary

I know I was once lost

I know I was once sad and filled with despair

"To despair is to turn one's back on God" For we know despair is of the evil one

I was lost and sad didn't know where to go....

Then I found you

---in a friend

---in a poem

---in a hub

---in a facebook post

I was

encouraged

  • to go to church
  • to reconnect with my Maker
  • I found you in the trees, smelled your flowers, heard the birds sing a song of praise

Walking one day

I was inspired to take the woodsy path which

led me

to a spiritual high



Do you believe in Jesus?

  • Yes
  • No
  • I love Jesus

Oh the beauty I see

in my neighbor

in every hurt and suffering soul

This my goal, Lord

to comfort them, the poor, the lonely, the sad

I see them in all places

in all races

in all spaces

--in the hospital

--on the streets

--my 'difficult' family or friends

You remind me to pray for them

Even if I cannot love my sister/daughter/mother/father/son/brother

I can be there



Have you found comfort in prayer?

  • Yes daily
  • Sometimes
  • Often

Do not allow the thought to

enter our minds

that we are not special

Do not allow our hearts to

give in to doubt or fear

Fear is not of God

God, you will lead us to everlasting peace

++++

Let me say a prayer

for you

today

Oh Lord, Father in Heaven

I call on you

I know you are all powerful in Heaven, on earth, and under the earth;

You created everything and I know you will help me when I ask confidently

with faith even as small as a mustard seed

that I want you in my life to heal all this strife and set things right

Help whomever needs you right now

Place your hand upon them this moment

And comfort them in your arms

like the shepard you are

In Jesus Name,

Amen!

A Prayer For You :)

Encouraging Bible Quotes

Psalm 28 Verse 1

Unto thee will I cry O Lord my rock; be not silent to me ; lest if thou be silent to me, I become like them that go down into the pit.

Acts Chapter 1:8

But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost (The Spirit of God) is come upon you; and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judae and in samaria and unto thee the uttermost part of the earth.

John 2:15,16

Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh and lust of the eyes and the pride of life, is not of the father but is of the world.

John 3:11-12 For this is the message that ye heard from the beginning, that we should love one another. Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one, and slew his brother. And wherefore slew he him? Because his own works were evil, and his brother's righteous.

Thank you lambservant, Agnus Dei, "Lamb of God" reminds me of your name or vice versa.

I had a difficult night last night and usually that turns into not only comforting myself but writing/creating a hub that's inspirational. I'm glad you enjoyed it, God bless you and Thank you very much :)
