STAY STRONG ~
There are many of us who have dreams yet to come. You might feel as if it is impossible but God does miracles. Read the story of the blind man who kept the faith and God answered the cry of his heart.
Luke 18:35-43 (NIV)A Blind Beggar Receives His Sight
35 As Jesus approached Jericho, a blind man was sitting by the roadside begging. 36 When he heard the crowd going by, he asked what was happening. 37 They told him, “Jesus of Nazareth is passing by.”
38 He called out, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!”
39 Those who led the way rebuked him and told him to be quiet, but he shouted all the more, “Son of David, have mercy on me!”
40 Jesus stopped and ordered the man to be brought to him. When he came near, Jesus asked him,41 “What do you want me to do for you?”
“Lord, I want to see,” he replied.
42 Jesus said to him, “Receive your sight; your faith has healed you.” 43 Immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus, praising God. When all the people saw it, they also praised God.
DON'T GIVE UP HOPE ~
Jesus answers us in his timing
The blind man said, "Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!" Jesus heard this blind man and answered his call. The blind man was in the right place, at the right time. Maybe you are facing something today that just seems impossible, but don't give up believing. I had prayers that got answered right away, others that took time and some where answered a different way than I thought. The prayer of prayer is real and you must keep believing.
I am also reminded of other stories in my life that seemed impossible but only God could do it. Let me share one. My husband made $1,500 ($1,000 check and $500.00 cash) for our daughter's (Tracy) first car. He went to the dump and had the envelope inside the truck. When he got home, he noticed the envelope was gone. He told me and we rushed back to the dump. Sounded impossible since the dump was a huge place and was about to close for the day.
The guard at the gate said, the truck that plows it under already did that, but we could look. The night time was coming fast and we only had a short time. We were about to leave and called upon the name of Jesus. Terry (My Husband) was crying because he worked hard for that money and we couldn't buy the car if we didn't find it. He knew about where he parked the truck and looked down. He saw this piece of paper and bend down to pull it out of the packed dirt. A miracle ~ IT WAS IT. Terry found the $1,500.00 and the guard was shocked. He said that was impossible for you to find that money but I'm happy for you guys. A testimony began of God's faithfulness and a story of being careful of what God gives you in the first place.
I pray that your prayers get answered fast. No matter what you face today, you face with hope and a new day of grace and mercy. Believe BIG and don't give up on your dreams. Our needs do get met and even our wants get answered. I thank you for reading this and my prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
