TOGETHER ~ We can make a difference
TOGETHER ~ We need each other and were never meant to do life alone
There are times in life when we just need each other a little more. Living in California right now is presenting wild fires in many places. My daughter and her family lost their family house and everything in the 2017 fires. Once again, they are ordered to leave their brand new house and pray their house doesn't burn down again. They just moved back in 2020 of this year and it took so long to rebuild. My heart goes out to those who had to leave their houses. Plus all the people who lost their houses in this fire of 2020.
I felt to share if you know someone who has lost their houses, the best thing you can do is give then money. They are pushed into needing everything again in life. Yes, ever a toothbrush and paste, underwear, socks, shoes and the list goes on. As I watched my daughter in 2017, I saw the generous support of so many people. I posted on Facebook about their loss and people send gift cards and money. It was so appreciated by Tracy, Sean and family. The kindness of others sure helped too. One problem with gift cards was this, they didn't always work. The stores would say there was no money on them. So I suggest cash to help others.
Let us join together today to pray to stop these fires:
God, we know that you are the creator of all things and things are being destroy. We are agreeing and asking that you stop the fires today. Men and Women are tired in fighting the fires and we ask that you help them today. Give their bodies rest and health. We pray for those to lost it all and help them to get the needs of their lives quickly and a place to start over. Starting over isn't always easy and so many emotions run high for many. Many are facing more evacuations today and we pray for them as well. Asking largely God that you will show your power and stop these fires. AMEN
Make today the best day you can and be sure to continue to pray. Pray for those who are sick with Covid too. Our lives need God to answer quickly in so many ways. Many are out of work, lack of money, bills that need to be paid and the list goes on. Help us God to trust in you in all things. We need to feel your miracle working power this day.
New International Version
5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
6 in all your ways submit to him,
and he will make your paths straight
Lets make today a day of prayer throughout the day. When someone comes to your mind, pray for them. Maybe you can text someone today to encourage them. We just never know what someone is going through. I recently heard from someone I haven't talk to in years and such a blessing to have them check in on our family. Yes, one text message can brighten someone's day that is positive.
New International VersionDo Not Worry
25 “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? 26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? 27 Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?
28 “And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. 29 Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 30 If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? 31 So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.
TRUST THE LORD ~
My prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
