welcome friends.....thanks for popping in my world....
I'd love to know you've stopped by, so please note that the comment section is now found at the title of each post.

No coincidence

I've always said that I don't believe in coincidences. I don't subscribe to the thought that things just randomly happen. I am a firm believer in God orchestrating all things.

So it didn't surprise me when I woke up to this email in my inbox. I really love Max Lucado and subscribe to his newsletter. Of course each one contains a powerful message whether it is uplifting encouragement, wisdom to apply to our daily walk.....or confirmation of the Great God we serve.

Let me backtrack by telling you about what I read prior to checking my emails.....

Sweet Abby needs our prayers more than ever today......she took a turn for the worse these past few days. And through it all, The Riggs Family continue to praise God.

"God is in control and we rejoice in the opportunity to depend on Him and observe His mercy and goodness."~Brent and Michelle Riggs

You know.....I am not so sure I could be saying those words if I were in their situation. I am being completely and boldly honest. I know that when God brings these circumstances to us, He will see us through it......but I am not that confident in myself. Which is why every night I thank God for my healthy children, husband and family. Knowing about Abby and the thousands of families going through the same heartbreaking event overwhelms me often and I find myself on my knees praying for God to perform a miracle with these little children. I know He can do it if it is His will. He has given sight to the blind, hearing to the deaf......erased cancer from bodies in a flash. There is nothing He cannot do.

Well, today's newsletter had a sentence that really struck my heart.

"One call and heaven's fleet appears. Your prayer on earth activates God's power in heaven."

Wow......how cool is that? It again confirms one of my favorite scriptures:

"For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them." ~Matthew 18:20

So I ask that you join me in prayer for Abby....and also remember to thank God for all the blessings He has graciously given you (us). Give your kids an extra tight hug.....don't forget to tell your family that you love them.

Peace and love~
