I wrote this back to a dear sister in Christ .. as most of you know I share what God asks me to this is one im sharing ..
I listened to a sermon last night that put out a message so clear There was a homeless man on the street He had a warn out old not so good blanked A man who went buy all most gave him a good blanket Another almost toke him to a shelter but was to busy A another all most feed him The poor man almost made it This story reminds me so much that to many of us are like the this I will pray that God makes us pleasing to him We can over come the selfishness in us.Like the first murder said Am I my brothers keeper to God.
My Reply to Sandra ..
Yes Sandra I hear you .. let me tell you a truth .. one day when I had my little girl .. she was very young and I was in a church who didn't teach much out of the Bible but I was on fire in the Lord and I read my word .. so I had just read about angels unawares ...
Hebrews13: 1 ¶ Let brotherly love continue.
2 Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.
So I was at home . we lived out on a highway that was remote you would see a car maybe once a hour .. but so many ran out of gas at our house we started to keep a can with
gas in it .. for that very reason .. So this one day .. I was home I worked of Levis Strauss I had hurt my hand and was on leave .. we had a walk that was about 200 feet long
guessing .. and we parked there next to the highway .. there was nobody for at least a quarter of a mile .. I had just moped my floor and was a pretty spring day and my
daughter was asleep and I heard a car stop I had the screen door open but locked I went to the door it was a old banged up truck that is not uncommon to see in Arkansas ..
a man stepped out he looked scary what I mean is if I had to describe him .. he was very tall and heavy set and had a beard and old clothes on maybe that is a good enough
picture ... So he walks down now Im expecting him to say I ran out of gas which im prepared to say there is a can in the carport .. but no he says ma,am I am so Thirsty
may I have a glass of water .. now talk about stretch your Faith .. im going thur all this in my head .. its like this is the 80s you don't do this .. and if I go get him
a glass I must leave the door and my daughter is asleep and so on .. but at that moment what comes to mind but that very Scripture .. So I said in my head God .. Im gonna
trust you and be obedient .. so I go get the glass of water and give him which he then drinks and says can I have another now at this point im like really God I smile and
say yes and I go get it .. he drinks it and thanks me and goes and gets in his truck .. Well you know Im thinking I have to know so I run up the walk and we had a long and I mean
long straight stretch and there is no way he could have made it off there .. yes you guessed he disappeared .. I learned that day 2 things .. listen to God obey .. and to
trust him .. God is so awesome .. Read the word for yourself he will show you things .. he will open your eyes .. The Holy Spirit is our teacher .. I love to hear people
preach and teach if they are on the word and Finally I have found a few who are praise the Lord. Teach the Truth and do it . John 14: 25 ¶ These things have I spoken unto you, being yet present with you.
26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
27 Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
We have a awesome God one we can rely on .. He is ever present Thanks be to Jesus for coming and giving us access to him .. he loves us so much and wants to be there for every
situation .. Keep Blogging .. I love you your sis Betty ...
