You’re Not Alone


Greetings to All

Have you taken time out to really hear what someone is saying to you (physically or verbally)?  Imagine seating behind your desk speaking to a colleague in reference to upcoming proposal, meetings and even budgets or a mate at home. 

However, their eyes display sadness but their face a smile. Another persons with a broken heart, depressed, suicidal, just trying to make it through another day just desiring a word of encouragement.  Observe those who labor around with you, a cup of coffee goes along ways.   Step outside of your comfort zone and encourage someone out of your pain or even if everything is going great in your life.  There is always a storm brew off of one of the hemispheres

The Word: 2 Corinthian 1:3-7

All praise to the God and Father of our Master, Jesus the Messiah! Father of all mercy! God of all healing counsel! He comes alongside us when we go through hard times, and before you know it, he brings us alongside someone else who is going through hard times so that we can be there for that person just as God was there for us. We have plenty of hard times that come from following the Messiah, but no more so than the good times of his healing comfort—we get a full measure of that, too.

When we suffer for Jesus, it works out for your healing and salvation. If we are treated well, given a helping hand and encouraging word, that also works to your benefit, spurring you on, face forward, unflinching. Your hard times are also our hard times. When we see that you’re just as willing to endure the hard times as to enjoy the good times, we know you’re going to make it, no doubt about it

Power Word: Rekindle the fire! 

You’re not alone.  God desire to use your “Disability for his Ability!” You’re not alone whatever the situation maybe there is a plan that will workout for your good.

Prayer:  May his Grace rest upon you removing worry, doubt, frustration, fear and depression.  Replaced the negative with inner joy, peace love, hope, a smile, positive outlook on life and strength for caregivers.

Life is a TEST!


Life is a test, if life was not a test you would have all the answers!  That being said, I had to accept that I’m an imperfect person living in an imperfect world with outsiders attempting to place expectations upon me over and over again.  When you accept expectations from others over and over again the end result is stress.

We must also understand that sometime in life we are whiplashed with crises out of the blue like a flood that just stresses us out.  A study listed the top twelve most stressful crises that a marriage can experience:

1) Death of a child

2) Jail sentence

3) An unfaithful spouse

4) Major financial difficulty or bankruptcy

5) Business failure

6) Being fired

7) Miscarriage or stillbirth

8) Court appearance

9) Unwanted pregnancy

10) Major illness in the family — cancer or heart disease

11) Unemployed for over one month

12) Death of a close friend

The only way families have a chance to survive the storms of life that come against us is to have a God given foundation – which is the WORD and Prayer.  This may be your season to step back, refocus, and prepare for the next examine.  It’s only a test and it’s so good to know the one who holds the pencil with the eraser at the end of it.
