Who are You? Finder, Keeper… or Giver?

Finder, Keeper... or Giver

A wise woman who was traveling in the mountains found a precious stone in a stream.
The next day she met another traveler who was hungry,
and the wise woman opened her bag to share her food.
The hungry traveler saw the precious stone and asked the woman to give it to him.
She did so without hesitation.

The traveler left, rejoicing in his good fortune.
He knew the stone was worth enough to give him security for a lifetime.
But a few days later he came back to return the stone to the wise woman.
“I’ve been thinking,” he said, “I know how valuable the stone is,
but I give it back in the hope that you can give me something even more precious:

Give me what you have within you that enabled you to give me the stone.”

Seek God First, He is just a prayer away

God is just a prayer away

This is God. Today, as with every day, I will be handling all your problems.
Please remember that I do not need your help.

If the Devil happens to deliver a situation to you that you cannot handle,
do not attempt to resolve it.
Kindly put it all in the SFJTD box (Something for Jesus to do).
It will be addressed in MY time. . .not yours. . .please be patient.
Once the matter is placed in the box, do not hold onto it.

Do not become impatient and take it back out to see if you can find a solution.
Holding on or removal will delay the resolution of your problem.
You must surrender the problem to me for proper resolution.

If a situation that you think you can handle arises, please consult me in prayer.
Together we will come up with the proper resolution.
If you do not receive what you anticipate as proper response from Me.

Remember. . .some of God’s greatest gifts are unanswered prayers.
Because I do not sleep, there is no need for you to lose any sleep.

Rest My Child. . .if you need me, I am but a prayer away.

Praise Him, Thank Him

Praise Him, Thank Him

Thank you for this sink of dirty dishes; we have plenty of food to eat.
Thank you for this pile of dirty, stinky laundry; we have plenty of nice
clothes to wear. And I would like to thank you, Lord, for those unmade
beds; they were so warm and comfortable last night.
I know that many have no bed.

My thanks to you, Lord, for this bathroom, complete with all the
splattered mess, soggy, grimy towels and dirty lavatory; they are so
convenient. Thank you for this finger-smudged refrigerator that needs
defrosting so badly; it has served us faithfully for many years. It is full
of cold drinks and enough leftovers for two or three meals.
Thank you, Lord, for this oven that absolutely must be cleaned today;
It has baked so many things over the years.

The whole family is grateful for that tall grass
that needs mowing, the lawn that needs raking; we all enjoy the yard.
Thank you, Lord, even for that slamming screen door.
My kids are healthy and able to run and play.

Lord, the presence of all these chores awaiting me
says You have richly blessed my family. I shall do them cheerfully and I
shall do them gratefully. Even though I clutch my blanket and growl when
the alarm rings, Thank you, Lord, that I can hear. There are many who are
deaf.
Even though I keep my eyes closed against the morning light as long as
possible, Thank you, Lord, that I can see. Many are blind.

Even though I huddle in my bed and put off rising,
Thank you, Lord, that I have the
strength to rise. There are many who are bedridden.
Even though the first hour of my day is hectic, when socks are lost,
Toast is burned and tempers are short, my children are so loud,
Thank you, Lord, for my family. There
are many who are lonely.

Even though our breakfast table never looks like
the pictures in magazines and the menu is at times not balanced, Thank you,
Lord, for the food we have. There are many who are hungry.
Even though the
routine of my job is often monotonous, Thank you, Lord, for the opportunity
to work. There are many who have no job.

Even though I grumble and bemoan my
fate from day to day and wish my circumstances were not so modest,
Thank you, Lord, for life. LORD, THANK YOU !!!!

In ALL things, praise Him…
