Wishing my friends Merry Christmas!

Monday, December 21, 2009

I just want to wish everyone here at Spark People a very merry and blessed Christmas!

I am thankful to my Father for all the wonderful friends I have met here and for those who are on their way! I have been blessed very much this year, even when things did not seem to go the way I would have liked, but my God knows what is best for me. And I am sure He has touched you somehow in your life this year too. So let's all give Him praise and Glory, which is rightfully His!
And let us not just remember that His Son Jesus Christ is why we are celebrating this week, but let us share the joy with those who do not know of our Lord and who need salvation, just like we needed it before God blessed us with His grace. Share a few minutes to talk about Christ. Or show His Love by being nice to someone you don't know or getting a little gift for those who may not have anything. Let someone know you are praying for them.
And the greatest gift you can give this Christmas is the gift of forgiveness. Make up with that person you have been fighting with. That child that has disappointed you (That one is for me), that spouse who made you angry. Whoever that person is forgive them. Because if it wasn't for the forgiveness of Our Father, we wouldn't have the gift of His Son

Enjoy your Christmas my brothers and sisters in Christ and remember, just light beautify the Christmas tree, let the Light of Christ beautify you so that God gets the glory!

In Jesus Name
Amen

    Thank you, Greg, for such a wonderful blog! Because of forgiveness (and sometimes I think only the Lord can make it happen), my father (the bio one) doesn't have to spend the rest of his life totally alone (self inflicted). I cannot imagine forcing someone to finish out their life alone just because they weren't very good at something (such as being a Dad). He still needs love, and he appreciated the forgiveness, too.

I am so glad that Jesus died for my sins. I wish I'd remember to tell Him more often.

Your friend, Lori

A prayer for all spirituals leaders here on SP

Thursday, December 03, 2009

Father God
I thank You for the honor of coming before You tonight to pray for the spirituals leaders who are members of Spark People. I pray for pastors, ministers, rabbis, evangelists, teachers and anyone who feeds your flocks. I pray that You keep them and protect them and their families during this Christmas season. I bind the enemy and any plans he may have had for the shepherds of God as they spread Your Gospel during this time when we celebrate the birth of Your Son. May Your Word come forth from their lips as fire and may everyone they touch be saved by Your loving Grace. And Father I thank You for placing this pray upon my heart and in my spirit and may I be used to glorify Your Name,
In Jesus Name
Amen

Let us pray and lift up those who feed God's flocks. Let them know we are thankful for all they do for God and for us this Christmas season. And even though I spoke of those who are members of SP, this pray is for all God's shepherds.
God Bless

A prayer of peace

Saturday, November 28, 2009

I was doing my Bible in a year reading and I was reading this Psalms and it really touched me! I mean, I have read it many times before, but it struck a cord in my spirit. So I thought I would share it with my SP family. I think it is a wonderful reminder of who God is and what He has promised us. And that no matter what we are going through in our life, He is right there with us and will let no harm come to us. Now I know many of us are going through some rough patches in our lives right now, but if you know Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, you know that this is just for a little while and that soon, these trials that we are going through will be just a thing of the past and we will be with Him in Heaven. And if you don't know Jesus, maybe this will open your heart and cause you to seek Him out, because He is knocking at the door of your heart, waiting for you to let Him in.
I pray that you are blessed my God's Word
In Jesus Name
Greg

PSALMS CHAPTER 121
1 A Song of degrees. I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.
2 My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth.
3 He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber.
4 Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.
5 The LORD is thy keeper: the LORD is thy shade upon thy right hand.
6 The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night.
7 The LORD shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul.
8 The LORD shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.

    ear Greg, so happy that you wrote the psalm out. It is just what I need. I just started on Multiple Sclerosis treatment and today I got dizzy and I was afraid because I was off balance, and my legs were not doing what they were supposed to do. I have been watching my grandson too. So that is scarey. Now read the psalm and see how it comforted me. It is also neat because I blessed my grand son with part of the psalm an hour ago.Thank you. I hope you will write as much as possible in your blog. It will help all of us.

    Thanks for posting this Greg. I love this Psalm! When my children were small, I read it to them every night before they went to sleep. They could recite it by time they were 2 years old. They both learned to tell their right hand from their left from this Psalm. lol
It is so comforting to read this just before bed knowing that He never sleeps.
Have a good rest tonight my brother in Christ,

I pray that You touch each life according to their needs,Lord God. I pray that You keep us safe as we travel to and fro to see family and friends. I pray that You bless us with peace , love and joy this Thanksgiving season. Let us understand the true meaning for Thanksgiving. Let us be thankful for another day in which to give You the Praise, Glory and Honor that You deserve. Please bless those who are sick Lord. Heal their bodies and their spirits. Bless those you are going without Father. Please meet their needs. Bless relationships, Lord. Marriages , families and friendships, please mend them where they are broken. And Father , please give us the Grace to handle all of these things, because without You we can't.
Bless those who are sad this Thanksgiving because of love ones not here Lord. Give them peace of spirit and Joy in their hearts and let them know that with You , they are never alone!
