What If

What if God couldn't take the time to to bless us today because we couldn't take the time to thank Him yesterday?
What if God decided to stop leading us tomorrow because we didn 't follow Him today?
What if we never saw another flower bloom because we grumbled when God sent the rain?
What if God took away the Bible tomorrow because we would not read it today?
What if God took away His message because we failed to listen to the messenger?
What if God didn 't send His only begotten son, Jesus because He wanted us to be prepared to pay the price for our sin?
What of God stopped loving and caring for us because we failed to love and care for others?
What if God would not hear us because we would not listen to Him?
What if God answered our prayers the way we answer His call for service?
What if God met out needs the way we give Him our lives?

"Then I remember something that fills me with hope.
The Lord 's kindness never fails
If he had not been merciful
we would have been destroyed.
The Lord can always be trusted
to show mercy each morning.
Deep in my heart I say,"The Lord is all I need.
I can depend on Him"

Lamentations 3:21-24 (The Promise Bible)

Last night the building contractor gave us quite an inflated bill which took us by surprise.The estimate he gave us was much lower.Sometimes these people don 't reveal the true costs . Once they start working they drop the bomb.Please pray that the Lord may provide.

Our next court hearing is on July 28th. Its a Saturday but I 'm hoping something will come up.

Sometimes I get disturbed and bowed down with all these cares, but I remember the promise of Jesus "If you are tired from carrying heavy burdens come to me and I will give you rest.Take the yoke I give you.Put it on your shoulders and learn from me.I am gentle and humble and you will find rest.The yoke is easy to bear and this burden is light" Matthew11;28-30 (The Promise Bible)
There are a lot of loose ends to tie up and I feel very weak and inadequate. Please pray for me.

6 Fertilize my soul:

I loved the "what ifs".

Always take your troubles to the Lord in prayer. (I love that Hymn-take it to the Lord in prayer.)

When things really get burdensome, He'll carry you. I always think of "Footprints in the Sand" poem.

I'll pray for you and your uncle, too. Take care. :)
