  1. Mary we all at times feel like today’s picture. In your reading. I been there. Said why was I left out in family suitation. I the eldest. But at the time I was cross. I was so hurt. I was the only saved bar my Husband. I still am. I heard load and clear God say Dawn. Keep praying for them. They will not change until they get saved. The rest of your family. They don’t see what they done is wrong in leaving you out not telling you. But I do see your hurt. Say nothing my child. Just love them like I do. Don’t have any rows with them. Pray for them. Pray for their Salvation. That is what I did. I am still praying for their Salvation. I also asked God to help me forgive them for what they did. I have moved on. Because if I didn’t. I know to this day I never be able to speak to them again. Yes I did at the time cry. But now I can talk to them and it don’t annoy me. But I will never forget what they done. God did say to me my child I am proud of you. You remember people of the world most of them until they get saved only think of themselves. As long as their own world is ok. No one else matters. Nothing will change until they get saved. Some are different. Some do care. He gave me this song. You get it on YouTube. “What a friend we have in Jesus” so true and the words of it so true especially when we are down and people have hurt us. As song worth listening too. Jesus is there for us no matter what. Jesus sees all our pain and tears. Jesus even in Luke 4 verse 38 was so caring and kind that went to Simon’s home. Found his mother in-law very sick. Healed her. So no matter what day of week it is no matter what the problems we have. It even says that in verse 43 of Luke 4 Jesus replied. But “I must preach the Good News of the Kingdom of God in Other places to that is why I was sent. (We his Children that are saved are to do the same) So see we can go Jesus in pray with our problems and he will help us and with faith like Simon’s mum heal us. As Simon mum made Jesus a meal to say thank you for her healing. Then we can get to help someone. Not let the problem get the better of us. Not let the old Devil let us be sinking in the problems. If need more help. Jesus through the Holy Spirit will show us if saved were to go to get the help. Love today’s reading like all incourage reading. Thank you for them all. Dawn Ferguson-Little xxx

  2. Wow. Can I just say that I needed this? I’ve been systematically “blocking” the people that post mean and nasty comments on my wall, and letting their words haunt me for hours at a time.
    Thank you for reminding me that Jesus felt what we feel, and that He is always there!!!
