Heavy Load?

Awesome!!  We complain about the cross we bear but don’t  realize
it is preparing us for the dip in  the road that God can see and we  can’t.  
there will always be sunshine, after  the rain….

But God’s always ready, to  answer your call….

a word from His  lips, can calm every fear…

But  suddenly vanish, dawn’s early  light…

to give you His grace, and send you  His love…

Whatever your cross, whatever your  pain,

Perhaps you may stumble,  perhaps even fall;

He knows every  heartache, sees every tear,

Your sorrows  may linger, throughout the night,

The Savior is waiting, somewhere  above…

God promised a safe landing, not a calm passage.

Where God Wants Me

This is another old forwarded email worth sharing. I am not sure who the original author is. This is in time for tomorrow’s commemoration of the 9/11 attacks eight years ago. Hope you like it.

**********************************************************

september_11_burningOne day I happened to call a man on business whom I will probably never talk to again, but this day God wanted me to talk to him.

He was head of security at a company that had invited the remaining members of a company who had been decimated by the attack on the Twin Towers to share their office space. With his voice full of awe, he told me stories of why these people were alive and their counterparts were dead.

All the stories were just little things.

You might know about the head of the company who got in late that day because his son started kindergarten.

Another fellow was alive because it was his turn to bring donuts.

The one that struck me was the man who put on a new pair of shoes that morning.
He took the various means to get to work, but before he got there, he developed a blister on his foot. He stopped at a drugstore to buy a Band-Aid. That is why he is alive.

So, Now when I am stuck in traffic, miss an elevator, turn back to answer a ringing telephone… all the little things that annoy me… I think to myself, this is exactly where God wants me to be at this very moment.

May God continue to bless you with all those annoying little things.

What I am Thankful For

thanks

FOR THE WIFE
WHO SAYS IT’S CANNED GOODS TONIGHT,
BECAUSE SHE IS HOME WITH ME,
AND NOT OUT WITH SOMEONE ELSE.

 FOR THE BABY
WHO CRIES FOR MILK
BECAUSE I AM CAPABLE TO PRODUCE AN OFFSPRING.

 FOR THE TAXES I PAY

BECAUSE IT MEANS
I AM EMPLOYED.

 FOR THE MESS TO CLEAN AFTER A PARTY
BECAUSE IT MEANS I HAVE
BEEN SURROUNDED BY FRIENDS.

 FOR THE CLOTHES THAT FIT A LITTLE TOO SNUG
BECAUSE IT MEANS
I HAVE ENOUGH TO EAT.

 FOR MY SHADOW THAT WATCHES ME WORK
BECAUSE IT MEANS
I AM OUT IN THE SUNSHINE.

 FOR A LAWN THAT NEEDS MOWING,
WINDOWS THAT NEED CLEANING,
AND GUTTERS THAT NEED FIXING
BECAUSE IT MEANS I HAVE A HOME.

FOR ALL THE COMPLAINING
I HEAR ABOUT THE GOVERNMENT
BECAUSE IT MEANS
WE HAVE FREEDOM OF SPEECH.

FOR THE PARKING SPOT
I FIND AT THE FAR END OF THE PARKING LOT
BECAUSE IT MEANS I AM CAPABLE OF WALKING AND I HAVE BEEN BLESSED WITH TRANSPORTATION

 FOR THE LADY BEHIND ME IN CHURCH
WHO SINGS OFF KEY

BECAUSE IT MEANS
I CAN HEAR. 
  
  FOR THE PILE OF LAUNDRY AND IRONING
BECAUSE IT MEANS
I HAVE CLOTHES TO WEAR. 

 FOR WEARINESS AND ACHING MUSCLES
AT THE END OF THE DAY
BECAUSE IT MEANS I HAVE BEEN
CAPABLE OF WORKING HARD. 

FOR THE ALARM THAT GOES OFF
IN THE EARLY MORNING HOURS
BECAUSE IT MEANS I AM ALIVE.

Special Sauce

 

arrowI was sitting at the drive-through window at McDonald’s this weekend (ok, eat out a lot). I did the usual thing, I drove up to the menu and ordered.

I proceeded to the first window and paid, then drove to the second window and waited for the order. After sitting there for a few minutes, the clerk slid back the window and asked, “Will you please pull over to the side; your order is not ready.”

I was a little upset and even impatient, but I pulled over and waited. I thought, “How come other folks ordered and drove straight through and I have to wait.” I waited for another two or three minutes. 

It seemed like hours before the clerk finally ran out, tapped on the window, and handed me the order. Of course I asked, “Hey, what took so long?” 

She replied, “You wanted the Special Sauce, which meant it had to be especially made for that sandwich. It doesn’t usually come with that one.drive thru

This scene is a reflection of our prayer life. We make our request to the Lord. Our menu is His Word, where He has listed promise after promise. We stand before Him and request and plead and, sometimes, even beg. 

We go to the first window and pay, sometimes with fervent prayer, sometimes with prolonged suffering, sometimes with obedience, and sometimes not at all.

We then move to the second window and wait for our order. If God doesn’t answer within a few minutes, we become upset. 

You know the phrase, “Jesus, it’s 5:00p.m. Friday; I prayed to You yesterday, and You still haven’t answered. I can’t wait much longer.”

Why is it taking Him so long? I’ve seen people drive up before me and they received their orders right away! We even go so far as to tap on the window and ask if He has forgotten our order. We become impatient. We become upset. We become downright mad.

Lord I asked for a mate ten days ago and I don’t see him/her anywhere.

Lord, I’ve been asking for a new job for two years; others have passed me by.

I’ve been waiting on a financial blessing for ten and I still have more months than money.

Where are You and why haven’t you blessed me?

And just when you think He is giving you the answer, He pulls back the royal curtain of Eternity, and states, “Please pull over to the side and wait a while longer.”

This once frustrated me to no end, made me mad, made me want to give up, made me want to holler; that is, until the clerk brought out my sandwich.

Then, the revelation became clear.

Do you know why the Lord has put you on the side? Do you know why you have had to wait for this blessing longer than before?

Do you know why He has put you through more this time than ever? Do you know why it seems as though He has not heard you and He does not care?

Do you know why it seems like you have had to go through more tears, more pains, and more struggling this time?

Because this blessing is a Special Sauce Blessing!CaramelSauce

This is an Overflowing, Pressed-Down, Shaken Together Blessing! You made a Special Order and God has been putting together a Special Sauce Blessing for you and He has to prepare it for you!

That mate you wanted . . . He’s putting together a Special Sauce!

That job you wanted . . . He’s putting together a Special Sauce!

That financial blessing . . . He’s putting together a Special Sauce!

That peace on the job . . . He’s putting together a Special Sauce!

That house . . . He’s putting together a Special Sauce!

That deeper anointing . . . He’s putting together a Special Sauce!

That promotion . . . He’s putting together a Special Sauce!

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end … [and a Special Sauce]. Jeremiah 29:11

How many people have driven away before the clerk brought their food, and how many people have missed their blessings because they did not wait?

Hang on there. Keep on waiting. You made a Special Order, now wait on God’s Special Sauce!

What Will Matter?

sunset manReady or not, some day it will all come to an end. There will be no more sunrises, no minutes, hours or days.

All the things you collected, whether treasured or forgotten, will pass to someone else.

Your wealth, fame and temporal power will shrivel to irrelevance. It will not matter what you owned or owed.

Your grudges, resentments, frustrations and jealousies will finally disappear. So too, your hopes, ambitions, plans and to-do lists will expire.

The wins and losses that once seemed so important will fade away.

It won’t matter where you came from or what side of the tracks you lived on at the end.

It won’t matter whether you were beautiful of brilliant. Even your gender and skin color will be irrelevant.

So what will matter? How will the value of your days be measured?

What will matter is not what you bought, but what you built; not what you got, but what you gave.

What will matter is not your success, but your significance.

What will matter is not what you learned, but what you taught.

What will matter is every act of integrity, compassion, courage, or sacrifice that enriched, empowered or encouraged others to emulate your example.

What will matter is not your competence, but your character.

What will matter is not how many people you knew, but how many will feel a lasting loss when you’re gone.

What will matter is not your memories, but the memories that live in those who loved you.

What will matter is how long you will be remembered, by whom and for what.

Living a life that matters doesn’t happen by accident. It’s not a matter of circumstance but of choice.

Choose to live a life that matters.

Illustrated Message

Sometimes, we understand a message when it is simply illustrated.

1

… and you question God “Why me?”

Always look at the bigger picture.

If we always thank God for all the blessings that we receive,

we should also thank Him for the stones that didn’t hit us.

This is one of those forwarded messages that I keep on receiving in my inbox, but the impact remains the same each time I reread it. This one’s from Beth, a high school friend.
