You've Been Faithful

My father, My Creator, God of Heaven and Earth, as we draw to the close of another calendar year, I am so thankful to you for your continued faithfulness in my life. Words cannot seem to quench my appetite in offering my thanks to you. 

You have kept my resources afloat, you have promoted me, you have kept me in good health, you have blessed my Mother in a remarkable way.  You continue to to be our guide, provider, protector, lover, friend...Our everything.  Thank you Jesus, thank you Daddy... Thank you Thank you Thank Yooooouuuuu!

As I approach this new year, there is this deep seated expectancy that I sense and I get exticed just thining about how you are going to bless me and answer my prayer.  I don't know what you have in store for me, but I know you are going to make me smile and continue to declare that My God is Awesome. 

Lord I love you more than anything else, I want to be saved in your kingdom.  I want to inherit the gift of eternal life when you return to earth to take us home.  I want to recieve your seal of salvation as the signs of the times we are living in point to your soon return.  Father please save me, please forgive me of all my sins.  Thank you for your faithfulness to me. I look forward to being even more faithful to you by investing more in our relationship.

In Jesus name I pray.  AMEN

Questions_ Answers...Solution_Preperation

Questions: For the past 3-4 days, the questions have been asked over and over again with heavy/sad hearts in various languages and expressions:  Why? why? WHY?...How, why????


Ephesians 6:12  King James Version (KJV)
12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

Ephesians 6:13-18 King James Version (KJV)
13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

Weapons and Gear needed for this spiritual Battle between Good and Evil
Ephesians 6:14-18
14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;

Join me in Prayer:
God of heaven, God of Love, God of joy, God of peace....We take this time to lift up your holy name and the declare that you are Great and Mighty....that no weapon formed against us will stand or prosper...we are more than conquerors through you.   Cover the grieving hearts with your peace, supernatural strengh and comfort as only you know how. 

Thank you that one day very soon, you will put an end to sin, and the powers of darkness. We look forward to living in the ultimate promise of heaven and all that you have prepared for us.  In Jesus Name.  Amen.

A Bruised Heart_Follow Up

Several months ago I did a post entitled, A Bruised Heart.  Since then, the 'admired one' traveled to the homeland over the summer, got married to his soul mate and has since brought his wife here to the States.  I discovered all of this from being nosy on 'social network'.

I would say about two/three months ago, I received an unexpected text message from him saying...My Friend, I just thought about you and wanted to say hello, hope you and your mom are doing well. Take care.   I read the message several times in disbelief and anger.  Why would you refer to me as your friend when you didn't even tell me of such an important occasion that was taking place in your life?????  I also discovered, on 'social network', that his mother passed away.  I met his mom and interacted with her on several occasions and don't understand why he wouldn't reach out to let his "Friend" know such a tragic thing took place in his life. Anyway, I quickly deleted this message so that I would not be tempted to respond.

Since the text message, I've had missed calls register on my phone from him and another most recent one yesterday.  I am aware that his bride is here and I think he is trying to connect with me so that perhaps myself and his wife can become friends and help her assimilate?  I don't know his motive, but I will say that the individuals he should consider friends are those who knew he was getting married and who he esteemed enough to let them know about his mom passing and any other important thing taking place in his life. 

The reality for me is that while I liked admired him deeply and was drawn to his self motivated, intelligent, ambitious, handsome characteristics, things would not work out for us due to major differences in culture, religion(we are both Christians but of different persuasions), family dynamics etc.  I know that he is a Christian and I know without a doubt that he fasted and prayed and sought counsel from his most trusted sources when the decision came to choose a wife.  I believe he made the best decision for himself.  I don't however want to be labeled as a friend for reasons of convenience.  Am I overreacting?
