Lent 6

Subject: Fw: Angels

A friend sent me an email that contained the following:
“God is going to fix two things BIG tonight in your favor. DROP Everything and pass it on.  Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. Don’t break this chain. Send to 14 friends in 10 minutes. It’s not that hard. Whoever sent this to you must care about you.”

My response:

God sees us struggling with things, and God cares about our struggles.  He is not just sitting idly by. Many blessings are coming our way every day.

We all have ongoing things with which we struggle. God can turn things around instantly, if he chooses, but he knows exactly what we need and when we need it. I find rich blessings in having his presence with me as the struggles gradually get solved.  And in the few that seem never to get solved, God’s grace is enough to get me through those, too.

So, If tomorrow is the best day of your life, it won’t be because you didn’t break the chain. We cannot earn God’s favour. There is nothing we can do that will put him in a position of owing us anything. All the rich blessings we have are not because we deserve them.

If you have two BIG things that you want God to fix, DROP Everything and pray.  God knows what we need, and we partner with him when we pray.

I could go on about this, but not right now.

God bless you.
