Sometimes the hard times help us move closer to God. Been there myself and God was with me the whole time, just had to stay focused on him. I hope your cousin can find Gods light in the darkness.

By the way, thank you sisters for your prayers. We have found a way for my stepson to continue to live with us until he graduates high school. Just keep him in your prayers that he will open his heart to Jesus

Leslie, I so agree with you. Been through that also. It is so painful as the 2 becoming 1 flesh is tearing. Lynette, I too pray that your cousin is able to, as much as he can, turn over this terrible burden to the Lord. My prayer is that God makes a way where there is no way and that God's wishes be glorified. God doesn't want any marriage to fail, however He gave us all a free will. May you all be the support he needs to follow hard after the Lord. I will be praying. Lynette, if it isn't betraying a confidence, could we have your cousin's first name. Blessings!

My cousins name is Scott. He just lost his mother a little over a year ago. At that time he said his faith was getting pretty shaky. His mom had a stroke and it left her pralised (sp) and could hardly speak. She lived a little over a year and he could not understand why God would do that to his mom. So now with the divorce he is really confused and hurt. I did hear some bitterness in our last conservation. Now I have to leave it in Gods hands unless he shows me different.

Thank you girls so much, it is nice talking with people that won't judge as others might.

Thanks for Scott's name Netty. I will pray that God melts Scott's bitterness and gives him peace while he allows God to build a stable marriage. Bless you!

Hello All,

Quick introduction, since I've never posted here before - I'm a 20-something single girl, raise Baptist but now go to a Messianic church and consider myself non-denominational protestant. Live in Colorado. :)

Got a couple prayer requests. My dad is going through chemo for a second time for his chronic lukemia. He had been in remission for over 4 years. Pleased to see that he is working to get his diabetes under control, and I think that will help the chemo be more effective and just be good for his overall health. (I think seeing his dad at Christmas helped kick his butt in gear, seeing how diabetes has effected my grandpa so much).

The other is for a job for myself. I am finishing my masters in just a couple weeks and do not yet have a job. I am hoping (for the reason mentioned above) to find something not too far away from parents, and preferably still here in CO if I can. I've got some savings, but I don't want to dry them all up to live off of while looking for a job, then I won't be able to one day put them towards buying my own land) . . . so I'm praying to get something by the beginning of July.

Thanks all, God Bless!

I'm just a 20-something girl making a home for me (and my dog) and waiting for the family to fill it!

Amy I will put you in my prayers for a job and so that you can stay in Colorado to help your parents.

I will put Scott in my prayers also that their marriage can get back together and be stronger than before.

I am asking for prayer for tomorrow for when I go to my briefing about getting help with my housing and that everything goes well and I am able to get the house I am in on the housing program..

Blessing everyone.

Cherime, did you know or do you know the lady who made soaps called Swan Mountain? I loved her soaps, and when I went back to get more, she was no longer in existence. Any word? I know at one time she had a child who was badly injured and she took time off. Thanks for any info.

found this quote yesterday and it seems to fit right now:

God doesn't give us what we can handle; God helps us handle what we are given.

I thank you girls again for praying for my cousin, Scott and his wife.
It means a lot to me.

Lesley I really like your quote also and I do believe it.

Amy I will keep you in my prayers that you will find a job near your folks and Amy you didn't have to tell us what religion you are because we are all christians here. Will keep your dad in my prayers also that his health will get better.

I just really want to share something with all of you.

The other morning, as I was praying, I was meditating on Jesus in the garden before his betrayal. I said to the Lord how terrified He must have been knowing what was to come - to have sweat blood! Oh! In the most still, quiet part of my heart, I heard Him say, "I was not terrified for myself, I was terrified for the lost." Then all these pictures started running through my mind of all the souls in hell being tortured for eternity with NO hope of it EVER ending. THAT was why He did this for us. He loves us so much, He didn't want us to go through that - that not one should be lost. Such profound Love. He would go through ANYTHING for us to save us from that. Bless the Lord, oh my soul, and all that is within me! Bless His Holy Name!

'Just thinking how it's Memorial Day weekend... No greater love have we!

Much love -

Nini

Nini,

That is truly amazing! I never thought of it like that and I do imagine others never thought of it either. I know I always thought Jesus was thinking about the pain and torture he would be going thru. Leave it to us to think Jesus was thinking of himself and not us.

Thank you Nini. Yes to think that Jesus willingly suffered and died with all the pain for others. It minimizes His gift to us, if others don't know about Him and don't take Him up on His salvation. That doesn't sound quite right, but ALL should take advantage of His so great a gift. It is a shame for those who are lost.

I have to say this is the great thing about community; someone can share something that opens us up to look at things from a different perspective. Thanks for sharing.

Nini...so very enlightening...thanks for sharing that revelation.

Did you ever stop to think that Jesus also had to willingly lay himself upon that
cross before they started nailing his hands and feet to it? That song "He
Could Have Called Ten Thousand Angels" to rescue him if he had changed his
mind...makes you also realize...how Great Of Love he had for us. From the Garden to
The Cross he had many opportunities to opt out but he didn't take any of them.

That is such Amazing Grace and Pure Love for the lost.

Love you all,
peggy
