I had doctors appointments coming up and I knew my money had to stretch as far as I could make it. I kept praying rerunning the cash I had on me and the money in the bank making sure I had enough for the service I just had done.  I knew it was going to be tight to get to the end of the month with everything else but I knew it would be okay.  One of the technicians came up to me as well as the manager and said you always get your car serviced here over 30 miles away and even with the spare that's not good to be riding around on for an extended period of time.  If I would accept it the technician had a new tire that he had bought for his wife's car but she did not need it and would I take the new tire.  I said yes but I had no way to pay for it.  They said it costs you nothing. Tears weld in my eyes as I almost blew this blessing because I was so worried about paying for it.  Then the words came quickly as if I wasn't the one talking.  I said thank you I appreciate your generosity and what a blessing they were to me and May God bless them all and I appreciated it.  They said they did not know how I made it on the tire to the shop in the first place and we laughed but we all knew how.  I thank you God for miracles big and small and for those you chose to allow those blessings to flow through to others in the name of Jesus  Amen Amen and Amen

Following His Word removes the pain of Life's Lessons How often I think back and have said I should not have done that or gosh that was sooo stupid.  I think about the love of Jesus because he sees us through everything and I remember to ask for forgiveness even of things long gone by.  There were times that I did things not evil or bad but plain stupid.  Giving when I could not do so and then get smacked in the face for having done it by kicking my own self.  Well these are just a part of Life's Lessons but the greatest Lesson is God is a forgiving and loving father and when we fall of do some not so smart things he helps us get right back up again and I thank him. While we may not be perfect and he knows this he loves us no matter what and that is a big relief.  Amen Amen Amen Thank you Jesus.

Remembering His Answer to Our Prayers maybe Different than what we expect I have to praise and thank God for the many, many blessings he has rained down on me and my family within the last week.  He blesses all the time but he has truly made his presence and the fact that he answers prayers undeniably so as evidenced by the things that occurred and was brought into me and my family's lives.  I was in and still to some degree in a financial crunch.  Money did not come but some of the situations and needs that were putting me in that position began to dissolve and resolve themselves.  Hallelujah.  I told KIND6004 a beliefnet friend that I think God answered my financial needs in his own way because God saw that my needs were truly something else. I still believe that he will also bring forth more prosperity for me because I realized more and more that asking for prosperity is not just a money proposition but a life enhancing and enriching change that effects all areas of my life and not just the financial.  I praise God and ask him to continue to bless us all because walking in and by Faith when things are uncertain, chaotic, painful is hard but faith keeps us positive and leaves us open to receive his blessings.  Thank you all for your prayers and kind words.  God is GOOD!!!! Thank you Jesus.

Others are Doing It Wow my friends have begun the work of giving but not overcommitting and making it so.  Guess what it is working.  Day by day it is working.  You do not always get positive responses when you say you can't do something or you do not have the additional funds to loan some one but in the end it is well worth it.  The stress begins to lift.  One friend told me this is hard.  No kidding when you have always been a giver and felt bad if you had to say no or could not do something to help someone else out.  Now with prayer and an honesty with yourself and others it does become a very positive scenario over time.  We agreed to check in with each other if we encounter a situation that made them feel horrible or broke their heart the response they got back when they had to say I can't.  You also learn a little bit more about some people you have called friends.  Thank you God for You.  Let us stay in his care and praise his name.

Making It So Happy New Year to all and it has begun just that way for me.  I committed to not overcommit and I am doing it.  I was amazed at how free in just a short period of time I could see the benefits of something that I should have been doing a looooooong time ago.  Our God is good.  It frees your spirit so you can minister better in serving God to others.  I am thankful and I pray all of us continues on our paths of closeness with our father because he truly is there for us. What ever we need, we want including prosperity and/or forgiveness all we have to do is go sincerely to him.  He answers and he certainly shows you the way and if we do what we say we see the evidences of his grace and mercy even more quickly and for me more vividly.  Thank God and may he continue to flood our lives with his love, grace and mercy for it is truly there. In Jesus name Amen  Remember it is not his word that goes out and comes back void, sometimes it is ours because we do not trust enough nor do we follow through with what we say or do.
