Having friends. One of the great gifts God gives us in this life is
friends. Those who we share this journey with. God never intended us to
walk alone. He will always bring people into our life to stand with us, be
there for us in our time of need, and give us the opportunity to serve Him
by being there for them as well. I never consider it an accident that for
this season of our lives, God has brought us together, and as my friend, let
me do something a little different today, and share with you some thoughts
I have jotted down. As my friend, you can stand with me in prayer over
these issues. There is no real order to these thoughts, they are just random, and
something I wanted to share with you since you are my friend.
....in 123 days Liveprayer will be three years old. I have to admit it
has been the most challenging three years of my life. As you may know from
my testimony, I have been through much in my life, but this has by far been the
most challenging to my faith in every way possible...
....I fight daily to stay focused on the Lord, and the personal
relationship I have with Him. I never forget that whatever else I do in my
life flows from that relationship...what I share with you each day, is a
result of my daily walk with the Lord....
....I have been tempted many times in the past 3 years to give up on
Liveprayer.Com. This thought was straight from the pits of hell itself.
The Holy Spirit constantly reminds me that it is not my choice. This is what God has
called me to do and my life belongs to Him...I serve Him to the best of my ability
each day with great joy!!
....My heart breaks each day as I read the mail coming into this ministry.
The pain, the heartache, the incredible challenges so many face. It makes
me more determined than ever to expand the outreach of Liveprayer.Com to be
that beacon of light in the darkness of this world, to help those who are
hurting and without hope....
....While the challenges have been incredible, the rewards have been
equally incredible! The salvation reports, the praise reports each day are
and a testimony to the awesome power and love of God for His children...
...My wife is the greatest joy in my life and the rock that enables me to
do what I do each day...
....I never forget that "without Him I can do nothing"....
....I look forward to waking up each morning. While the challenges and
pressures are great, my daily interaction with you, my friends, make my
life so complete. I never take for granted the wonderful opportunity God
has given me to minister to you and try to stand with you during those difficult
times in your life..
In His love and service,
Your friend and brother in Christ,
