Hey brother, certainly praying for you with the new job, that it goes well and is a blessing. I'm also praying that the Lord blesses your relationship with the person at your church, that not only are your differences reconciled, but also that develop a strong friendship from this.
Amen to us not grieving like those with no hope or future, and the fact that he is with our Lord! Thank you for the sincere post.
Y'all have a wonderful weekend!
"The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, Thou wilt not despise."
God wants us to need Him. He made us to need help, not to try to do everything on our own. When times get tough, God wants us to open our hearts to Him, that He might be made real to us. God also wants us to turn to him in good and bad times, not just emergencies. We were made to have a relationship with Him. Call upon God from your brokenness, and He will be faithful to answer. Speak to God daily in prayer and listen for God's answers in your life so that when you are broken, you are also assured His hand will re-work your heart to become all God has designed you to be.
When all else fails, I turn to You, Lord. I should not wait until situations get bad, but I do. Be with me to help me in the hardest of times, and stay with me in all times, that I might know You better and glorify Your name in all the earth. Amen.
"The Lord is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and rich in love."
Prayer is natural and almost spontaneous when compassion grows in the heart. Prayer belongs to the compassionate believer.
Dear God, I want my prayers to flow from a heart that is like Yours - please give me compassion for others so my life shares Your love. In Jesus Name, Amen.
Please remember the National Day of Prayer is this Thursday, May 3. If your church is having an event, try to take part; if you can't join a group for prayer, try to commit 15 minutes of your day to prayer for our nation, for our world, for our leaders, for specific people in need, for the persecuted church, for your church and its leaders, and for yourself and your family. Let's pray for a revival in America and in the world!
Praise: Oldest daughter had a positive experience yesterday even though she wasn't feeling 100%.

"And I said, 'Oh that I had wings like a dove! For then would I fly away, and be at rest.' "
There are many breathtaking experiences in this life that God has given to us. He has reserved some special things for each of us. These experiences help us touch the wonder of God. They involve us in His mystery, and they remind us of just how great He is. Embrace life fully. Try new things. The Lord is offering you new excitement and opportunity every day of your life.
Grant me wings to soar, Father. Set me upon high places and show me the wonders of Your love. Open my heart to new things, and help me grow. Amen.
