Bless Your Heart!
Hebrews 13:5 (KJV) Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.
You know that family. The ones you see around town, or maybe they sit in front of you at church. They are perfectly dressed, kids well-behaved, beautiful home, two new cars and a European vacation every summer. Their lives seem...perfect. The sun always seems to shine over their heads--and never over yours.
It is hard not to covet other people's blessings. God made mighty promises to Abraham, Moses and others in Bible times. These folks were given large families, land and riches. We witness miracles around us every day; healing, safety and even big, fat checks. Do we really believe that could happen to us?
Whatever God says to one of us, he says to all His children. When He feeds one hungry soul, He feeds them all. The blessings that are bestowed on one saint are available to all His children. There is no hierarchy of gifts in God's house, where some receive many and others only a few. Look around this vast world, all of it is available to you, as a blessing from your Father. There are no limits. There are no "haves" and "have nots."
Let His blessings pour down on you, beloved.
Female in Motion Health Update: I have a few radiation treatments under my belt now, and I'm feeling good. They're not scary or painful or long. Thirty minutes every weekday, and I'm done!
Prayer Request: One of my CTCA buddies, Ryan Prudhomme, received some bad news this week. He has liver/bile duct cancer and one of the tumors is leaking. He will need a very risky surgery or he faces multiple organ failure and ultimately, death. Ryan is 28, a loving husband and father to 3-year-old Colton. He's a committed Christian, a real cowboy and dynamic speaker. Please join me in praying for Ryan's complete healing. His blog is here: http://rkprudhomme.blogspot.com/2013/03/my-biggest-prayer-request-for-you-ever.html
