“Why not go out on a limb? That’s where the fruit is.”
-Will Rogers


The Lord is saying: I am for you, I am with you and I understand you. I am better than any best friend could be. I laugh with you and cry with you. But more than that I can deal with anything that you will ever encounter. Walk with me rejoicing for I am rejoicing that we are friends.


I don't call you servants anymore, because a servant doesn't know what his master is doing. But I've called you friends because I've made known to you everything that I've heard from my Father. John 15:15


You all know the poem I'm sure... but just a reminder how the loving care of our wonderful God never ceases to be more than we can ask or think.....

One night a man had a dream. He dreamed
he was walking along the beach with the LORD.

Across the sky flashed scenes from his life.
For each scene he noticed two sets of
footprints in the sand: one belonging
to him, and the other to the LORD.

When the last scene of his life flashed before him,
he looked back at the footprints in the sand.

He noticed that many times along the path of
his life there was only one set of footprints.

He also noticed that it happened at the very
lowest and saddest times in his life.

This really bothered him and he
questioned the LORD about it:

"LORD, you said that once I decided to follow
you, you'd walk with me all the way.
But I have noticed that during the most
troublesome times in my life,
there is only one set of footprints.
I don't understand why when
I needed you most you would leave me."

The LORD replied:

"My son, my precious child,
I love you and I would never leave you.
During your times of trial and suffering,
when you see only one set of footprints,
it was then that I carried you."

Inspirational Moments


Whoever had a friend like You
Whoever had a friend so true
Whoever had a friend Jesus
Whoever had a friend like You

Who their life for me would lay
No one else this price would pay
I love you more each passing day
Your more to me than words can say


All I lack I find in you
Your all I need to get me through
All your promises will come true
I know they will cos they always do


Through trials you tell me be of cheer
Don't be afraid I'm always near
You turn to joy my hurt and fears
You give me back my wasted years

One day the Lord asked me to look for His love in everything. Even the things through life that seemed so detrimental. It was hard task. I asked the Lord how could I see His love in the fact that my Father left me when I was 3 years old. That night I turned the God TV on . Lo and behold the Father's love letter came on. Tears streamed down my face as the narrator spoke these words. "I offer you more than your earthly father ever could, because I am the Perfect Father". I knew that the Father was saying that He had been more of a Father to me than I would have had if my father had stopped, because of the problems he had at that time.


I pray that you will get as much comfort from this wonderful video as I did. In Jesus's precious Name


The Father's love letter to you
