CORRIE TEN BOOM ~
A woman who went through so much in life and looked to God for rest. I highly recommend you read her book titled, "The Hiding Place". It changed my way of thinking and how God never forgets you and offers new beginnings.
Revelation 3:8 New International Version (NIV)
I know your deeds. See, I have placed before you an open door that no one can shut. I know that you have little strength, yet you have kept my word and have not denied my name.
PEOPLE ~ DO YOU KNOW THAT GOD CARES
SAN FRANCISCO ~
Walking down the street in a busy city, you will people going different directions. Some people are in a hurry, while others are walking slow. Seems as if everyone has a place to go and mission about their walking. I notice how some people who smile at you, others turn their heads and some don't even notice you. I've done this myself. Busy people going places. Isn't it nice when someone smiles or opens a door for you!
Matthew 7:7-8 New International Version (NIV)Ask, Seek, Knock7 “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. 8 For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.
PEOPLE ~ God created each of us and knows our hearts desires. I know that God has answered many prayers for me, but I also have some unanswered prayers. Some that I hold tightly to seeing and others that have guided my life a different direction than I thought. I understand people more today than ever. Each of us have our own thoughts and wants in life. One of the greatest desires of my heart is to used by God. I want to know him and have his use me in ways to help others. I don't like the mistakes I've made in life, but I like the feeling of God using them to help others.
Today is a new day and your choices matter. You will see people and some you will connect with but others you won't. Before you head out today or even if you are at home today, think before you speak to someone. Be the example by your life to others. Showing them that greater is ahead by faith and hope. Don't give up believing in miracles or living the life you want. Don't settle for less but for the plan of God in your life.
My prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
