I so value my sisters in Christ. At one point in my life I either knew my sisters in Christ in person or figuratively as members of the Body of Christ, then a new category was born - my blogging sisters in Christ. I keep up with a few of you on the Net (and I've met 2 of you in person - Annette & Ang) via your blogs. I really appreciate knowing your hearts through your posts.
One sweet sister is Wendy, I've read her posts pouring out her heart concerning her husband and his fight with COPD. David passed away earlier this month.
I ask you to lift Wendy up in prayer as well as her family. So many of you are hurting for 1 reason or another. Know we are here to pray with you and for you. We are to carry one another in prayer just as the friends carried their friend the paralytic to Jesus.
A few days later, when Jesus again entered Capernaum, the people heard that he had come home. So many gathered that there was no room left, not even outside the door, and he preached the word to them. Some men came, bringing to him a paralytic, carried by four of them. they could not get him to Jesus because of the crowd, they made an opening in the roof above Jesus and, after digging through it, lowered the mat the paralyzed man was lying on. When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralytic, "Son, your sins are forgiven."
We are to lift each other up, not tear each other down. We are to speak words of love not gossip. We are to love not judge. (Don't confuse judgment with discernment!) We need to listen instead of always speaking.
If you need prayer, please leave a comment. As always - Stay in the Word!
