What a friend we have in Jesus,
all our sins and griefs to bear!
What a privilege to carry
everything to God in prayer!
O what peace we often forfeit,
O what needless pain we bear,
all because we do not carry
everything to God in prayer! Have we trials and temptations? Is there trouble anywhere?
We should never be discouraged;
take it to the Lord in prayer!
Can we find a friend so faithful
who will all our sorrows share?
Jesus knows our every weakness;
take it to the Lord in prayer! Are we weak and heavy laden, cumbered with a load of care?
Precious Savior, still our refuge–
take it to the Lord in prayer!
Do your friends despise, forsake you?
Take it to the Lord in prayer!
In his arms he’ll take and shield you;
you wilt find a solace there.
Money can buy many things. In fact it can almost buy everything. Money can by friends if you’re lonely. It can buy planes or boats to transport you where cars can’t. Money can even buy the body’s most vital organs and doctors to perform the procedures. But the one thing that money cannot buy is the greatest gift from God and that is love. Self love is good for what it does but self love can not replace the love that we NEED TO RECEIVE from sources outside of ourselves. People often say that they are content without someone loving them but that’s not the case for the majority of people. As people we often find ourselves chasing after love and the reason is because we will suffocate without it in the same manner that we would without sufficient amount of oxygen. Love is something we need. Take a look at the commandments Jesus said were the greatest. Love God and love your sister and brother. Husband love your wives and wives love your husbands. A lack of love is destroying our world, homes, and communities. Love is desired, required and when it’s acquired the devil gets fearful. Praise God through loving Him, yourself and your sisters and brothers saved and unsaved.
This is GOD I will be handling ALL your problems today. Please remember I WILL NOT NEED YOUR HELP!!! If life happens to deliver a situation to you that you cannot handle, do not attempt to resolve it. Kindly put it in the SFGTD Box (something for God to do). It will be addressed in My time not yours. Once the matter is placed into the box, do not hold onto it. Holding on or removal will delay the resolution of your problem.
If it is a situation that you think you are capable of handling, please consult me in prayer to be sure that it is the proper resolution. Should you have a bad day at work, think of the man who has been out of work for years. Should you despair over a relationship gone bad, think of the person who has never known what it’s like to love and be loved in return. Should you grieve the passing of another weekend, think of the woman in dire straits, working twelve hours a day, seven days a week to feed her children. Should your car break down, leaving you miles away from assistance, think of the paraplegic who would love the opportunity to take that walk. Should you notice a new gray hair in the mirror, think of the cancer patient in chemo who wishes she had hair to examine.
Should you find yourself at a loss and pondering what is life all about, asking what is my purpose? Be thankful! There are those who didn’t live long enough to get the opportunity. Should you find yourself the victim of other people’s bitterness, ignorance, smallness or insecurities, remember … things could be worse. You could be them!!!
Because I do not sleep nor do I slumber, there is no need for you to lose any sleep. Rest, my child. If you need to contact me, I am only a prayer away.
Love eternally the Lord your God. Hallelujah!!!!!!!!!!!!’!

Jesus never wrote a book but no library in the world could hold the volume of books that have been written about Him. He never went to a Medical College but He has healed multitudes, without medicine and making no charges for His services. He never was a chef but He fed over 5,000 people with only five loaves and two fishes, and had twelve basketful left over. He never was a mortician but He raised at least three people from the dead while He was on earth. He arose from the dead Himself and the hour is coming when all that are in the graves shall hear His voice and shall come forth; the that have done good unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil unto the resurrection of damnation (John 5:28-29). Jesus never did marshall any army, draft a soldier, or fire a gun, but no military leader ever had more followers give him such love and devotion, and voluntarily lay down their lives for His cause. Jesus never became in this worlds goods. However, He owns all the gold and silver in this world and the cattle on thousand hills are His, all things having been created by Him. He left His riches in heaven and became poor, that we through His poverty might be made rich. The Son of God put on humanity that the sons of men might put on divinity. The Son of God became the Son of man, that men might become sons of God. The Son of God came from heaven to earth that sons of men might go from earth to heaven. The Son of God suffered, bled and died on the cross that sons of men might live; that they might not perish but have everlasting life. He died on the cross and rose on the third day. He is alive, what a wonderful Christ, what a wonderful Savior.
