Letter 237 – A Prayer Attributed to an Unknown Confederate Soldier…

A Prayer attributed to an unknown Confederate Soldier…

 

I ask for strength that I might achieve;

I was made weak that I might learn humbly to obey.

 

I ask for health that I might do great things;

I was given infirmity that I might do better things.

 

I ask for riches that I might be happy;

I was given poverty that I might be wise.

 

I   asked for power that I might have the praise of men;

I was given weakness that I might feel the need of God.

 

I asked for all things that I might enjoy life;

I was given life that I might enjoy all things.

 

I got nothing that I asked for;

But everything I had hoped for.

 

Almost despite myself my unspoken prayers were answered;

I am, among all men, most richly blessed.

Letter 235 – CAN YOU CHANGE TO BECOME MORE LIKE HIM?

This letter, one of many, is for anyone who might read it. Over the years, the focus of these letters has been on Jesus. Over the six years of writing them, Jesus has not changed, nor will He change…ever. He is perfect. He can never lie. He is the same yesterday, today, tomorrow, and beyond, throughout eternity.

 

Have we changed in the past six years…From knowing Jesus, to knowing and loving Him more? Can we strengthen and improve this relationship? If so, our walk with Him will grow stronger. Do we know who we are in Jesus?

 

We can wear the same cloths and look the same when people see us on the outside, but Jesus is looking to see us on the inside. He wants to see us walking in the Light of Christ.

 

Are we able to make this walk with Christ? If we ever cared for anything in our lives, choosing Christ will be the most important decision of all the thousands of decisions we will make in our life time.

 

CAN YOU CHANGE TO BECOME MORE LIKE HIM?

Letter 234 – Are You A Warrior for God?

There are so many people out there who don’t know Jesus and are strangers to Him. These people need the help of Christians. We, as Christians, need to join God’s Army to share Jesus and The Kingdom of God with them.

 

We were put here to serve the Lord. Let’s answer the Lords call by bearing witness to those who are lost and know nothing about Jesus Christ and God’s Kingdom. This is our call. Step up and be counted.

 

When you are talking about Jesus, you become a light on the Hill. As you are in this spotlight, reach out and help someone step into God’s brilliant light. Words cannot describe His Peace and Love.

 

When you look back on the work that you did for the Lord, you should ask yourself…Did I do all that I could, in the time that the Lord gave me? Just remember, as you answer His call, the Lord is always with you. He never sends you out alone.

 

ARE YOU A WARRIOR FOR GOD?

Letter 233 – Do You Know Jesus and What He Did for Us?

When we are born, and as we begin to grow up, life begins to get more complicated as the days, weeks, and years role by. At first, our innocence protects us from the trials of life. As babes, we see all the wonders of this world as God sees them.

 

As we lose the age of innocence, we begin to see how world events and people impact our lives. Before finding Christ, we may not realize what is happening. We could spend our entire life being destroyed by Satan, or if we are blessed, we will find our way to Christ and learn how to destroy anything that Satan throws at us.

 

How do we find Christ? Somewhere along the way, we hear about Jesus. Finding Him is the first hurdle. We next have to know what happened to Jesus on the Cross and why His crucifixion had to happen in order for mankind to be saved. Next, we have to accept and believe that Jesus died to save us.

 

Once we reach this level of a relationship with Jesus, we have only just begun to talk and walk with Him. Our level of Father and Son intimacy increases as we follow in His footsteps. We won’t realize until we are Glorified into Heaven of how vital our walk with Him is.

 

DO YOU KNOW JESUS AND WHAT HE DID FOR US?

Letter 232 – Can You Let Go and Let God?

When you take your burdens to the Lord, leave them there. Most Christians hold on to their problems by trying to solve them on their on. Only God can remove our troubles. You have to have faith and believe in God for this to happen. Nothing else will do.

 

The only way that God can help us through our burdens is by letting Him take over. We are so used to driving the steering wheel of our life that we automatically take on our burdens when they arise.

 

The hard thing to do is to turn our life’s reins over to God to do the driving. We have to work at this 24 hours a day to let God run the show. This is not easy.

 

Where are you in your quest to control your life and its problems? Whose hands pulse your life…Yours or Gods? The hardest thing to do is to make the right choice…choose God. Can you do it? It’s a daily struggle for us. It’s the most difficult thing we will ever do in our life. By taking God’s road, we will have a peace we have never known.

 

CAN YOU LET GO AND LET GOD?

Letter 231 – Choose God Before Your Last Breath

Of the short number of days left in this world, we need to think of where it all began for us, who are we, and what is ahead for us?

 

Where It All Began For Us…Of all of God’s Creation, Mankind is His Greatest. Even though our life begins on earth, we will live forever, and we have begun a journey which will take us into eternity.

 

Who Are We?…We are Mankind, God’s Family that He wants to love. God gave us the freedom to choose Him to be our Father. If we claim Him as our Father by believing that Jesus died for our sins to save us, we will spend eternity in Heaven with Him. If we do not believe that Jesus died for us, then, we reject God as our Father and spend eternity in Hell where we will be tormented forever…We will not be allowed to die.

 

What Is Ahead For us?…If we choose God as our Father, we will be co-Heirs with Jesus, and we will rule and reign with Him over creation. If we reject God as our Father, we will be thrown into the pits of Hell.

 

CHOOSE GOD BEFORE YOUR LAST BREATH
