Today was a blessing on all fronts! Mark and I have a standing meeting "at the table" every morning; we talk about all things good, bad and ugly, our fast, we talk about the Restoration Crusade and people on our prayer list and then we pray. I have been praying for someone to help us with one or two promotional videos and recently that prayer was answered by a fellow church member and new friend who is using his time, and talent (his ministry) to help us with these much needed video(s). Never, never let anyone tell you that prayer doesn't work, that God doesn't hear you or you shouldn't pray for certain things. If you have a need or a desire...pray!
Let me repeat...if you have a need or desire..pray! The Bible tells us from the Genesis to Revelation that God loves us and wants to hear our prayers. Prayer is worship; it is a direct communication with God. It is a conversation that requires no cell towers, it will never be"dropped", there are no roaming fees and never, ever will the line be busy. He is always there.
The Bible says, The Word of the Lord came to Jeremiah a second time while he was in prison saying, "Call to me and I will answer you and show you great and unsearchable/mighty things which you do not know" during a time of Israels restoration. Jeremiah 33:3 is one of my favorite scriptures because it reminds me that I am not alone not alone and that He asks us to call on Him then promises to answer! I think that is pretty awesome.
Today's food was smoothie for breakfast, vegetable wraps with avocado, homemade salsa, cucumber, bell pepper, tomato, and onion for lunch and soup and salad for dinner. Feeling good.
