Thank you for the trials!

Be encouraged in that whatever trials you may be facing that you are not alone.
God is there and will always be with you and give you the strength to keep on!
Isaiah 40:31 says...

"but those who hope in the LORD
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint."

and Isaiah 41:10...

"So do not fear, for I am with you;
do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand."

One of my favorite songs says...

"Thank you for the trials, for the fire, for the pain.
Thank you for the strenght, knowing you have
ordained every day."

You are not alone. God's power will be shone when
you are weak and He will bring about his good and
perfect will even though we may not know what it is.
God bless!

Pray for Haiti!

Please be praying for Haiti!
There was an enormous earthquake this week
and thousands have died! My heart is heavy
for these people! Pray that God will use this
to bring many to him! Be praying for all the
people who have lost loved ones! May God give
them peace and hope! God bless!

Jesus Freaks

If you have never read Jesus Freaks by dc Talk I eagerly suggest you do! It is an amazing book filled with true stories of Christians who were martyrs for their faith. The book is truly inspiring and encouraging to read.

Here are a few quotes from the book...

"If we do not radiate the light of Christ around us, the sense of the darkness that prevails in the world will increase."
Mother Theresa
Gave her Life to the poor in India

"Lord, I am your messenger. Throw me like a blazing torch into the night."
Mary Skobtosova
Died in a Nazi gas chamber
Many believe she died in the place of another woman picked to go to Ravensbruck Concentration Camp.
Germany, Easter Eve, 1945
The Camp was Liberated by the Red Cross the next day.

"God didn't call us to be successful, just faithful."
Mother Theresa

"It is not my ability, but my response to God's ability that counts."
Corrie Ten Boom
Hid Jews in her home to protect them from the Nazis during World War II

Hope these encourage you to continue to shine your light to the world!
God bless
