sunset-hands-love-woman.jpg

Hello Dear Friends,

Please keep your faith!!!

What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who is against us?
If our God is with (for) us, who can be against us. Romans 8:31

Please let us join our hearts together in prayer for our fellow men, women and children!

Let us pray for all leadership on every level…world, country, state, county/providence and city/town.

Let us pray for all on the front lines…Drs, nurses, specialists, research scientists, manufactures of equipment, all service people: military, police, ambulance, fire, etc.

We serve a Mighty Savior.

Please Lord heal our people!!! Our hope is in You and You alone!!!

When sheltered in….we can pray Dear Friends!!

Let us lift our voices in prayer to a mighty God!!!!

Be safe, shelter in and keep serving Jesus well…He loves you so well!!!

Love, hugs and prayers,

Encouragement: Spafford’s Hymn/It Is Well With My Soul

Hey Sweet Friends,

Here is the history of the amazing hymn: It Is Well With My Soul.

In the darkest times…”we entrust our souls to a faithful Creator.”

Be encouraged Sweet Friends, our God is with us!!

The Lord also encouraged Spafford to write this hymn after losing all his children. And on that long journey to meet his wife while crossing over the place his children passed away…he wrote this incredibly hymn of truly tremendous faith.

Jesus loves you and He will NEVER leave you or forsake you!!

You only need to trust in Him as Lord, you are His child!!

May this hymn be yours and my anthems each day of our lives…in the good and the bad!!

Be safe, be kind and know you are not alone!!

Enjoy the testimony and may you be encouraged!! And then listen or sing along to the hymn.

Let our voices rise and to praise and glorify a truly all mighty God!! One who loves you so very very much!!

Keep serving Him well Dear Ones!!

Love, hugs and prayers….k

Scripture: BibleGateway.org

Amplified Bible (AMP)

A Psalm of David.

138 I will give You thanks with all my heart;
I sing praises to You before the [pagan] gods.
2 
I will bow down [in worship] toward Your holy temple
And give thanks to Your name for Your lovingkindness and Your truth;
For You have magnified Your word together with Your name.
3 
On the day I called, You answered me;
And You made me bold and confident with [renewed] strength in my life.

4 
All the kings of the land will give thanks and praise You, O Lord,
When they have heard of the promises of Your mouth [which were fulfilled].
5 
Yes, they will sing of the ways of the Lord [joyfully celebrating His wonderful acts],
For great is the glory and majesty of the Lord.
6 
Though the Lord is exalted,
He regards the lowly [and invites them into His fellowship];
But the proud and haughty He knows from a distance.

7 
Though I walk in the midst of trouble, You will revive me;
You will stretch out Your hand against the wrath of my enemies,
And Your right hand will save me.
8 
The Lord will accomplish that which concerns me;
Your [unwavering] lovingkindness, O¬†Lord, endures forever‚ÄĒ
Do not abandon the works of Your own hands.

5 Easy Ways to Encourage a Friend

Hi Sweet Friends,

As a cardmaker…I LOVE this article and I love encouraging others.

I pray each of you are encouraged!!

Hugs and prayers….k ūüôā

Mar 24, 2019 by Jordan W.

In a word of quick text messages and the instant gratification of technology, let’s be a light of inspiration and encouragement to those around us. I love holding onto cards and notes from sweet friends as a tangible reminder of the love and encouragement the people in my life bring me, and it’s also a great reminder to do that same thing for others in my life! Below are five different formats that make it simple and easy to send love and encouragement to your people!

1. Encouragement Postcards

A¬†postcard¬†is one of the easiest ways to quickly send a note of encouragement to a friend or loved one from a distance. These cards already have an encouraging message and beautiful design on the front, so all you have to do is jot down a quick note on the back, put a stamp on it, and send it out! The convenience doesn‚Äôt take away from the sentiment ‚Äď you‚Äôre making that relationship a priority just by putting a simple card in the mail.

2. Scripture Shareables

These compact cards are full of encouraging words straight from the Word of God, and they make it so easy to share God’s Word anytime, anywhere. They’re small enough to carry around in your purse or wallet so you have them whenever you need them. Put one on a coworker’s desk when you know they need some encouragement, leave one with your tip at your favorite coffee shop, or give one to a friend who shared their heart with you and just needs a little extra from God’s Word today. These little cards are small but powerful.

3. Prayers to Share

Similar to the Scripture Shareables, Prayers to Share are an easy format to hand out at a moment’s notice whenever you feel led. Each sheet has a scripture, a prayer, and an inspirational quote on it, so they can be universally inspirational, or more specific to a person’s situation. I keep a stack of them on my desk so I can write a note on the back and share with coworkers whenever I feel led. You can also tuck them inside a greeting card or even leave them on someone’s windshield for a little extra happy in their day.

4. Sticky Prayers

Sticky prayers are a fun way to encourage those around you. They‚Äôre small, customizable sticky notes, so they make it easy to share a prayer or encouraging message anytime. The blank space allows you to write your own message or prayer, and then you can literally stick them anywhere ‚Äď the possibilities are endless!

5. Greeting Cards

Greeting cards are probably my favorite way to encourage friends. I just choose a card that’s made for the appropriate occasion, whether it be Thank You, Happy Birthday, Thinking of You, etc., and then choose a style with a beautiful design and message. I usually add in my own little note on the inside, and then I send it out! It’s simple, thoughtful, and takes no time at all, but the sentiment goes far with my loved ones.

I know how much I love to receive an encouraging note every now and then, so I’ve tried to make a conscious effort to be more intentional in that department. Stock up on your favorite cards or Prayers to Share so that you always have something encouraging on hand to share when the opportunity presents itself!
