  1. AMEN! Please if you will pray for my Mama (Linda) and my Cousin (Dean). My Uncle Alan died yesterday morning.

    • You have not lost all with your Uncle dieing yesterday especially if he was saved. Nor have your family. Yes you might miss him all of you on this earth. But next time you see him all of you that are saved. You will see him in Glory with Jesus. Will say a we prayer for you all. At least you all good memories of him. Big hugs to all. Love Dawn xx

    • Praying for your family right now. Grief is surely a hard wilderness season. May the God of all comfort be with your dear mother and Dean every step along the way! Psalm 147:3 (MSG) gives us this promise, that God “…heals the heartbroken and bandages their wounds.”

  2. Mary,

    This is soo me Have I wandered away from the path God made for me, following my own desires and dreams instead of His? Oh yeah. Yes this life is hard!!! Praising God that Jesus was willing to leave the splendor or Heaven & come down to broken Earth & take our place-MINE on the cross. Be the sacrifice needed to save me from Hell!! I don’t deserve His love, grace or mercy. I haven’t always shown Him how much I love & adore Him, but working on that daily. We won’t get out of the woods till we die!

    Thank you for a great prayer!

    Blessings 🙂
