Christmas Story #8 You don’t have to have money to be generous……..

12 days extra extraChristmas story #8 Jesus is real. I testify!

One of my Life changing Scriptures is found in Jude 22 “And on some have compassion, making a distinction. 23 but others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire, hating even the garment defiled by the flesh.”

If someone comes to me with a problem they are going to get the word of God, Prayer and Jesus! The way I see it, if they don’t want him they aren’t ready for help. And if they won’t receive him I can’t help them either. Now you know. I am radical!

The bible says a generous person will prosper. Now I don’t care so much if it’s financially but I Know it makes our soul prosper. We don’t have to have money to be generous. We can give our time, our love, a cookie, or even a prayer.

I met a guy one time in a housing project, he asked me to pray for him during Christmas time. He was “having such bad thoughts” he said.

After we prayed, he brought me a painting he had painted and said to me “I have to give this to you!” It was a nice painting.

I said why? “Because”, he says, ‘I just know I will feel better if I do.” 
He gave me this gift and as far as I know he was fine after that.

I don’t know why he was compelled to do that, but he was having murderous thoughts and it was scaring him. When He told me, it kind of scared me also. 

I just said “LET”S PRAY!” I know who the counsellor is. His name is Jesus! 
You don’t need a minister license to represent Jesus. All you need, is faith If you don’t have any start today praying on little things, and read your bible!

Oh I forgot to tell you why he asked me for prayer! Everywhere I go I talk about Jesus. I don’t even remember how it came up, but as people oten tell me, Nobody can be around you long without Jesus coming up! (Good!) 

I either drive them crazy or they ask me questions OR they run away! Why would we not tell the reason we are okay in this world? If hearing about Jesus drives them crazy, they are not ready for him. Yet. 

Jesus is still the answer! so get your brave shoes on and next time someone has a problem, offer to pray with them. And if you need help. Ask me for prayer! I will be happy to pray for you and I won’t judge you. Jesus is not some picture on the wall to me or someone I was ‘told about” He is REAL! And he loves you!  and thank you those who pray when I ask (You know who you are!) and I love you very much.

With Love,

Laura Grace

Your corner of the world……..

our-house-1

I was just thinking (what to post) As I have not posted as often lately, as I was before. I was thinking how we just need to be what we are called to be “in our little corner of the world” so to speak, until the Time God ushers us elsewhere. Faithfulness is not just about going to church faithfully. Many people daily go to work, clean their houses, tend to their children, Bless their communities, trim the trees, paint garages…..

Fix their cars, pay their taxes, take time to smile and talk to the grocery clerk, decide NOT to retaliate against that bad driver they just encountered, Volunteer to go the extra mile, pray for people, hold the hand of a friend that is in a difficult time, (sigh) yes do the dishes, take out the trash, feed the dog or cat, and oh “choose celery” over cake (at least for today) take time to smile at some kids dressed up for Halloween even if you don’t like that holiday much, (but say wow that costume is cute) Pray for someone instead of cussing them out because you find them offensive, (and so on and so forth) 

A million things we do each day…..

a million chances come our way 

To Make this world a better place 

And it fill it with God’s love and grace! 

I was thinking…..I wish I had figured this out sooner but….

Everything we do really DOES make a difference to someone!
