Burdens and Blessings

Do you remember singing, “Count your blessings. Name them one by one. Count your many blessings. See what God has done.” Certainly, that is good advice.

How about, “Count your burdens …” It occurs to me that burdens and blessings are the same thing. The difference is in how you look at them!

It is a given that God knows and loves each of us as individuals. (Some may not choose to accept that – but – truth is not changed by our choices!) Thus whatever situations occur in your life are permitted by a loving God.

Most life situations are the result of our choices (good or bad) which God uses to teach us about responsibility. Other life situations have not involved our choices: aging parents, failed economies, wars…

Bottom line – God wants the best for each of us. What seem like “burdens” then become opportunities to want the same thing God wants. Each “burden” becomes a blessing.

Prayer chain

Subject: Prayer for our country USA

 A "prayer chain" is a request to pass the article on to friends/family….(at least one other person) so as to NOT break the chain. It will travel many, many miles around the country, maybe the world, depending on who sends it to "wherever"…

Please take time to do this and not break the chain on this important prayer…
after reading this prayer, be sure to THANK GOD for listening and trust in HIS WILL to be done.

BE STILL AND KNOW THAT I AM GOD.
Psalms 46:10

Dear Beloved God in Heaven –

Please give us a president that loves this country and everything it stands for.
Please give us a president who respects you as the one true God.
Please give us a president who will, with your help, restore this nation to its former glory, the way you created her.
Please give us a president that will not try to destroy our Churches.
Please help us to respect what you have given to us and not take anything for granted….ever again.
Please God, weaken the evil and strengthen the good, both within and without. May our eyes be opened. In Jesus’ name, Amen

As never before in the history of this country has this plea been so necessary…
In God We Trust and we pray that GOD WILL BLESS AMERICA!!!!
