WONDERFUL LOVE OF GOD FORWARDED BY ABRAHAM G

WONDERFUL LOVE OF GOD..ABRAHAM G

I told GOD: Let all my friends be healthy and happy forever...!
GOD said: But for 4 days only....!
I said: Yes, let them be a Spring Day, Summer Day, Autumn Day, and Winter Day.
GOD said: 3 days.
I said: Yes, Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow.
GOD said: No, 2 days!
I said: Yes, a Bright Day (Daytime) and Dark Day (Night-time).
GOD said: No, just 1 day!
I said: Yes!
GOD asked: Which day?
I said: Every Day in the living years of all my friends!
GOD laughed, and said: All your friends will be healthy and happy Every Day!
Send this to your friends and bless them with good health and happiness...
Pass on the warmth despite the ever-changing weather...
GOD said Good friends must keep in touch.

Beauty is vain "Proverbs 31:30

"Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised."  Proverbs 31:30


Too much preoccupation with beauty is vanity and vain!  Of course, no one wants to look ugly.  On the other hand,  nothing is wrong with being beautiful, since God made everything beautiful.  The point is what is our attitude towards beauty of a woman?


What is important is how a woman seeks the face of God.  It is how she treasure the Lord in her heart!  Beauty is secondary only.  For when we are obsessed with beauty, it becomes an idol; it's a danger of idolatry.



God does not like idolatry.  Therefore, if we love God truly, we have to avoid things that he does not look with favour---and one of these is obsession with beauty and the like.

GOD'S RIGHTEOUSNESS ENDURES FOREVER


And God is able to provide you with every blessing in abundance, so that by always having enough of everything, you may share abundantly in every good work. As it is written, “He scatters abroad, He gives to the poor, His righteousness endures forever”. 2 Cor. 9:8-9

Come pray; relax your worried mind and disturbed heart in the Presence of the Lord. He has everything you are searching for. He has the power to do everything for you. He loves you more than you can ever understand how much. Sit before Him today and say “Jesus, you are able to provide me with much more than I need and much more than I can ask for” Keep repeating this prayer. Expect Him to provide for you. He will provide love, understanding, peace, goodwill, acceptance, healing, finance and everything your heart is seeking. The condition? Come into His Presence, and believe He can do it!


LEAVES MAY FALL: BY MARIA CASSIA AUSTERO











LEAVES MAY FALL


Leaves may fall but I will pick it up,

Neatly pile it on grass; nay it flew

Autumn leaves excites the winds---

That blew and whisper, it knew?

Tawny and fragile as these leaves,

The love that I bear by the sheaves

Hidden by the hamlet O' the petals

Alive as the orangy peach, no lulls!

Leaves may fall but I will hang it up,

Strip the bark; attach the memories

That carve in the flesh of the trees

As I sat on the cold quite sublime!

That's how important you are,beloved,

Leaves may fall, it does not matter---

Wind may sway the flame of my heart,

Never will it die out, leaves may fall...

The cloud comes before rain

The rainbow comes in day.

ALL WISDOM COMES FROM THE LORD BY MARIA CASSIA














ALL WISDOM COMES FROM THE LORD

The sunset and sunrise from day to day, And fresh breeze as of south and north The dew at dawn and the rain that lay And waves that frolick, such a delight! O' flowers of irises, hyacinths and lilies, And humming bees that seeps nectar, Butterflies of myriad colors aloft nadir In metamorphosis and slumber to life! See the waves of the seas by so fickle-- Once gentle as a deer suddenly rises! Out of the blues rises beyond heights, Curly waves meaning darkness or life! The height of the sky, bounds of stars, And depth of the abbys, limits of earth Who master it all but only the-- Lord! The One who created, the Almighty... The mountains steep as the Everest, And rainforests that teems of greens With does and antlers bow and leans And rain unendless such as Amazon? The days of eternity, years and dashes Love expressible by blood on the Cross Solidarity in sin, now renewed in Spirit! All Wisdom comes only from the Lord... Bestowed wisdom to those who love Him, To all who has fear ...for it is the beginning Of Wisdom! That never fades and lasting All Wisdom comes from the Lord. Praise Him!

FOR EVERYTHING IS POSSIBLE FOR GOD: REFLECTIONS BY CYNTHIA ABEGAIL



THE WOMAN OF SHUNEM AND HER SON

Elisha said,  "Tell her this:  "Look, you have gone all this trouble for us, what can
we do for you?  Is there anything you would like said for you to the king or to the commander
of the army?"  But she replied, "I live with my own people about me."  
"What can I do for you then?" he asked.  Gehazi replied, "Well she has no son and her husband is old."  Elisha said, "Call her."  The servant called her and she stood at the door.  'This time next year,'
 he said, 'you will hold a son in your arms.'  But she said, 'No , my lord, do not deceive your servant.'
But the woman did conceive, and she gave birth to a son at he time that Elisha had said it would.
(2 Kings 4: 13-17)  New Jerusalem Bible 1994

*  There are many miracles recorded in Scripture but many of these miracles were done
through prophets and people of God.  When a miracle occured, it is not surprising that
some doubters will arise!  On the other hand, if one look closely---miracles are done
through the power and grace of God to increase people's faith.  It always have purposes
and are not done for the fancy of the prophets or of the saints.

"For nothing is impossible for God," as St Gabriel the Archangel said in the Annunciation
of the Lord.  This is the momentous time when Mother Mary, chosen by God Almighty to be the 
Mother of His Beloved Son.

If we believe and have only a grain of mustard seed of faith, anything is possible through God
alone or through the intercession of Mother Mary, St. Joseph, St Michael the Archangel, all of
the angels and saints.  But there is a condition!  Our faith must be solid and unconditional.
The Almighty God permits miracles through an unwavering heart or through a divine
intervention.

What is impossible for God?  Nothing!  If the universe is here in our midst, as the mist
or dew is on the leaves, what is impossible for the One who created everything even the
place where you are standing now?

For our God is an awesome God!  Be patient as He is patient with all of us.  Miracles happen in
His own time!  Our duty is just to wait and see how things unravel for us.  Why?  Because He is
GOD.  "Be still and know that He is GOD."

A FEW MOMENTS IN HEAVEN FORWARDED BY DR. ANISHA KURIAN-PHILIP

A FEW MOMENTS IN HEAVEN

I wanted to share this with you if you would like to put it on your blog. I do not know who wrote it.
This is one of the nicest e-mails I have seen and is so true:
I dreamt that I went to Heaven and an angel was showing me around. We walked side-by-side inside a large workroom filled with angels. My angel guide stopped in front of the first section and said, 'This is the Receiving Section. Here, all petitions to God said in prayer are received.'
I looked around in this area, and it was terribly busy with so many angels sorting out petitions written on voluminous paper sheets and scraps from people all over the world.
Then we moved on down a long corridor until we reached the second section.
The angel then said to me, 'This is the Packaging and Delivery Section. Here, the graces and blessings the people asked for are processed and delivered to the persons who asked for them.' I noticed again how busy it was there. There were many angels working hard at that station, since so many blessings had been requested and were being packaged for delivery to Earth.
Finally at the farthest end of the long corridor we stopped at the door of a very small station. To my great surprise, only one angel was seated there, idly doing nothing. 'This is the Acknowledgment Section,' my angel friend quietly admitted to me. He seemed embarrassed 'How is it that there is no work going on here?' I asked.
'So sad,' the angel sighed. 'After people receive the blessings that they asked for, very few send back acknowledgments .'
'How does one acknowledge God's blessings?' I asked.
'Simple,' the angel answered. Just say, 'Thank you, Lord.'
'What blessings should they acknowledge?' I asked.
'If you have food in the refrigerator, clothes on your back, a roof overhead and a place to sleep you are richer than 75% of this world. If you have money in the bank, in your wallet, and spare change in a dish, you are among the top 8% of the world's wealthy .'
'And if you get this on your own computer, you are part of the 1% in the world who has that opportunity.'
'If you woke up this morning with more health than illness ... you are more blessed than the many who will not even survive this day .'
'If you have never experienced the fear in battle, the loneliness of imprisonment, the agony of torture, or the pangs of starvation ... you are ahead of 700 million people in the world.'
'If you can attend a church without the fear of harassment, arrest, torture or death you are envied by, and more blessed than, three billion people in the world '
'If your parents are still alive and still married ....you are very rare .'
'If you can hold your head up and smile, you are not the norm, you're unique to all those in doubt and despair.'
You just received a double blessing in that someone was thinking of you as very special and you are more blessed than over two billion people in the world who cannot read at all.
Have a good day, count your blessings, stay happy!
Difficult things take a long time, impossible things a little longer...

"DO YOU WANT TO BE WELL?" REFLECTIONS FORWARDED BY PRAYER AID


One who was there had been an invalid for thirty-eight years. When Jesus saw him lying there and learned that he had been in this condition for a long time, he asked him, "Do you want to get well?"John 5:5-6

Today, Jesus is asking us the same questions.“Do you want to be well?”“Do you want me to relieve you of that burden? That illness? ”We want to say ‘yes’ but we wonder ‘will He really do it for me?’“Am I worth this healing to Jesus?”“Maybe He will keep me waiting” whatever your arguments are believe in your heart that Jesus is asking you that question “Do you want to be well?”Surrender your problem to Him….give it to Jesus and try not to advise Him how to do what you are asking Him to do….surrender, then believe in your heart that He will do it. Don’t let any negative thoughts shake you, trust Jesus.The doubts will come, the fears will increase, and when this happens recall Jesus asking you “Do you want to be well?”Then remember how you have answered Him.Expect the healing - it will come.

(Thanks Jane Pimenta for this beautiful reflection on how God respects the dignity of each person by asking "Do you want to be well?"  Healing will come, rest assured!  It is the Lord who heals).

THE SUNSET # POEM BY CYNTHIA ABEGAIL

                                PICTURE CREDIT: www.freefoto.com


The Sunset
Wisp of browns, sheets of corals
Colourful yellows, zips of reds
Shoots of reds, hazes of violets
Mesmerizing colours of sunset!
So grandiose the clouds of God,
Far- reaching, beyond the eyes
Breathtaking beauty, as it lies
Awe-struck, I stand with sighs!
Life could be a sunrise or sunset
Gasping in the morning to meet
Slowing as a turtle crawling late
Retiring at evening with a slate...
But sunset strikes an image
A reminder that tomorrow
Is still another day of vow
Sunset for sunrise to show!All rights reserved: Cynthia Abegail
