SHUT IN ?


Sunday, February 24, 2013

10:19 AM 2/24/2013
HI ALL .. had such a wonderful day some awesome Friends and Sisters in Christ came over .. we just sat and talked about God and Jesus the Bible prayed .
it was awesome .. now I am at church online but for some reason there is no sound oh well will keep it on im sure its awesome will watch it later .. I just
had such a awesome time .. when you are shut in and barley go out and they come to you .. whoo hoo ..I pray I never ever forget what this is like even when
I get to where I go out .. I know I will be visiting shut ins and wherever whatever God wants .. I think people have no Clue there was a time I felt hopeless
I had given up .. Im alive now .. full of God and vigor and I know I will reach my mark .. Will Finish .. But there are others out there who need us .. I
pray that someone .. will reach out to those .. Just a call or a few minutes of our time .. We need to remember where we have come from .. I guess my heart is
heavy .. I have a sister who is crippled and has been since birth she is in a nursing home because she went mental .. and I know its from so many things .. and
please I don't want sympathy .. I am only saying all this in hopes that we will all get out and go visit people .. She has nobody but me and my sis .. nobody goes
to see her .. if we don't go who will .. and I know there are so many .. I was shut in my home for over 4 years .. never stepped out .. I was blessed my doctor
came to me .. not all are but what I am saying is even once a month if not more find someone .. go help them take them a a good meal or shop or whatever God
leads you to do .. just a quick visit means so much .. When i was shut in only my daughter and sis came .. which I praise God for many don't have that .. so
search your heart today .. who can you help .. its not all about us right .. God loves you and so do I .. love Betty

    We constantly check our neighbor as he has MS and though he is married, he sometimes needs my husband's strength and some home made meals.

    So tell me all about how your transformation occured....you sound so full of joy and life now...
I definitely relate to being shut in...I can go out but often do not feel well enough to do so...it is a blessing for someone to come visit me. I live alone and go for many days without conversation.

    Wonderful testimony Betty, thank you for sharing.
I have a sister who is a shut in of sorts in CT/ She lives in a wheel chair, she has had so many issues with her body, it is literally broken. I am thankful that God has provided her with several friends in the same apartment building who spend time with her. She cannot get out to go to church and she does not have internet. She does have a cell phone and we text back and forth.

    When I was little my mom had to take me with her all the time....that meant visiting my great aunts & great uncles, second, third & fourth cousins. I have never been shut in but I do have a desire to visit the sick, shut in & become involved in prison ministry.....

God bless & thank you for sharing,

Dee

    You are so right! I used to do this before I got tangled up in a bad marriage to a man who sold himself as a Christian but who did all he could to keep me isolated even from church. Now I am married to a wonderful man who believes in caring for the needs of others and we visit others together when we are home. emoticon

I know you will keep pressing toward the mark!

    I have a son who lives with me, he's a victim of a motorcycle accident and has lost so many of his friends who can't deal with the way he is now. Because I'm his primary care giver I try to get him out other than when hired caregivers take him to transitional therapy. He is happy to see his siblings, but misses his friends. He loves to talk to people/family who call me. I call some of my elderly relatives and friends and family to check on them. I can't get to them as they live in other states/countries, but I can contact someone who can get out and get them something. I will add you to my prayer list Betty.

    That is whot Jesus parable about the sheep and Goats is about Feed the hungry Visit the sick or shut ins help those who are lost or in jail Be a good Samaritan .That separated those saved from the unsaved Love kindness for others.
