I'm not going to put a lot of babble upon the screen today, my hope is that I'll have a few extra minutes before work so that I may stop and get coffee for my co-workers. Who are sure to be chilly upon arrival this morning!
As I think about the day ahead I am encouraging myself, and others to consider this - COUNT YOUR BLESSING and PRAY FOR THOSE WHO ARE COLD.
As I think about those who do not have a warm home, a warm cup of coffee, a warm pair of gloves it burdens my heart for them. Today if we all paused for a moment and prayed for others ... oh just think of the ripple effect! Think of the positive vibes that will WARM HEARTS! Yes, let's think about OTHERS this morning! Let's PRAY IT FORWARD
Dear Lord Jesus, I come to you on the behalf of those who are cold this morning, those who are going without, those who do not understand there are resources which are available to help them. As I sit at my warm table it is easy for me to say "they need to get help" but not everyone understands their situations Lord. Our community has many who suffer from mental illness & abuse. Jesus, I pray that your guiding hand would be placed upon them and direct them to where they need to be today, to be safe. To be warm. I pray Lord you pull them close and wrap them in you. Jesus, I pray you also be with me. Make me mindful of my blessings and Lord let me be mindful of the opportunities that are always present to be used in your plans for others. Jesus keep people warm today, and most certainly keep their eyes focused on you. In Your name we pray A'Men.
