New International Version (NIV)
<sup class="versenum">23 </sup>“Therefore, if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother or sister has something against you, <sup class="versenum">24 </sup>leave your gift there in front of the altar. First go and be reconciled to them; then come and offer your gift.
I was humbled, and called the person, apologized, just to find out a world of issues that are dramatically affecting his life. Makes my issues look like fairyland. I would not had known had I not called to ask for forgiveness, and he confided in me his life issues. I don't see evidence of the person being a Christian. We spoke abour faith a bit, told him I would be praying over him. Please pray for him too. The Lord opened this door (through my sin) and I believe intends to use me. Pray for me and God's work.
................ things are not always what they seem.............
Romans 12:17 Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everybody.
Romans 12:18 If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.
I am doing better these days, so thank you for your prayers for me. Anxiety is much better (changed meds and got off others- LESS is better) Sleeping better as of late (PTL what a blessing). Dealing with chronic back pain that got really bad last week .... better now. Going to seek injections again, and/or pain management. Try to only take over counter, but getting rougher.
Gators,I hope all is well with the family situation. Still in my prayers, brother!
Still keeping you prayed up too, Gary.
"Honor and majesty are before Him: strength and beauty are in His sanctuary."
Take time to be quiet and think about the good things God has done for you. Look at both the
good times and the bad in proper perspective. We are loved by a God of all creation, the Master
of all eternity. He has made us important by His love for us. Think of how wonderful this love
is. We have no way to comprehend this kind of love and attention. It is well that we take time
to contemplate all these things. All honor and glory belongs to the Lord, who loves us so much.
By entering into His presence, we come to know just how very lucky we are.
Who am I, Lord, that You take notice of me? I cannot believe that You love me the way You do.
Though I don't understand, I do accept Your gracious love, and I am thankful from the depths
of my soul. Amen.
Job has started a new job, his employer has been exceptionally supportive of what has occured in his life, he recently got into a new relationship that is going well and I am hearing a lot of positives coming from him. I think the worst is over and alot of it has to do with prayer including those from this site so thank you all from the bottom of my heart and I am sorry I didn't update you.
You and Mom are in all our prayers and I hope you get a rest soon!
Love in Christ
