Whenever I hear any one arguing for slavery I feel a strong impulse to see it tried on him personally. Abraham Lincoln


The Lord is saying: Its been a stormy ride but you are nearly at the end of this season. I have got you through and given you all you needed. I will get you through this last bit, with flying colours just as I have before.


I've heard the following before and I'm sure you must have too. But it was good for me to remember. I had just been thinking how in my life people have come and gone, sometimes under circumstances when relationships drew to an end due to either my doing or the other person's. Then I thought of all the enduring relationships that are constant and always wonderful and supportive (even if we don't contact each other for ages). I wondered why do some people stay and some go.. Then within minutes I opened this email up........


People come into your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime. When you know which one it is, you will know what to do for that

When someone is in your life for a REASON, it is usually to meet a need you have expressed.

They have come to assist you through a difficulty, to provide you with guidance and support,

To aid you physically, emotionally or spiritually.

They may seem like a Godsend and they are.

They are there for the reason you need them to be.

Then, without any wrongdoing on your part or at an inconvenient time, this person will say or do something to bring the relationship to an end.

Sometimes they die. Sometimes they walk away.

Sometimes they act up and force you to take a stand.

What we must realize is that our need has been met, our desire
fulfilled, their work is done.

The prayer you sent up has been answered and now it is time to move on.


Some people come into your life for a SEASON,
because your turn has come to share, grow or learn.

They bring you an experience of peace or make you laugh.

They may teach you something you have never done.

They usually give you an unbelievable amount of joy.

Believe it, it is real. But only for a season.


LIFETIME relationships teach you lifetime lessons,

things you must build upon in order to have a solid emotional

Your job is to accept the lesson, love the person and put what you have learned to use in all other
relationships and areas of your life.

All you have asked of ME shall soon be accomplished, even as you speak shall the revelations flow to all who enquire and listen.
Even amongst the birds shall the excitement increase

This is my prayer for you reading.

Ephesians 3:14-19

For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.

I can't stop watching this. I'm leaving it a bit longer.
Its such an amazing scriptural portrayal of Revelations. Thank God we are written in the Lamb's book of Life
