One of Jesus' Names--- "The Word" And, an update on myself, the comment section and encouraging each other!

Dearest Friends~

I thank each of you for the prayers offered on my behalf, and for all of the people who are sharing from their hearts in the comment section...especially in the last post.  I encourage you to take a look at the prayer requests and sharings that were left for every one's benefit.  If you feel so led, please lift up your Sisters-in-Christ who have left prayer requests.  They are left in the comment section just for this purpose.

Me?  I am about as ill as I was in my last post.  I have a bit more energy...but it is very difficult on top of my regular condition of being disabled.  I am having a great deal of difficulty breathing, and have almost no energy. It feels like when I was in 6th grade and had double pneumonia.  I did not want to go on without leaving you some Good News of the Lord, however.  I do not know when I will be back on the blog.  I will be back Wednesday if I am up to it, and we will do all of the "Card of the Week" Give Aways that I promised.  I promised to do an extra give-away for each post I have missed!  So, be sure to leave comments...I don't know when I will be back, but you are eligible if you have left any type of comment during that week! I just wanted to update you today...make sure you knew about the prayer requests and wonderful sharings of your friends in the comment section in the last post, and in this post to follow, I am sure.

Now, while I can still sit at this computer, let me share a bit from the book
Power in His Name:The Wonderful Names of Our Wonderful Lord.  This book was published by Barbour.  The name I would like to share today is the name when Jesus is called, "The Word."

"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God,
and the Word was God."  John 1:1

This book says the following:

"In John's Gospel we find many titles for the Son of God.  The book of Genesis commences with creation, but John commences with the Creator.  What a foundation for our faith when we know that Jesus was the Word and the Word was God.  If we face this tremendous fact, we can feel the throbbing of our hearts and hear a voice that says, "God!"  As we look upon the heavens and the the clouds, we think "God!"  The sun, moon, the trees, the flowers and all living creatures seem to shout "God!"  Without Him there is nothing.  With Him all things are possible!"

And, they offer this short prayer, please join me:

"Oh, our Living Word, who has given us the written Word, help us to abide in You.  Amen."   And, we all say....AMEN!

Please think on this.  Many times I see God in the majestic mountains, or the clouds where I can see the heat lightning inside of them, or when I see a tiny lady bug, or perhaps in a rose.  I see God in almost everything.  I hope you will take a moment and think about where you see God.  And, list it in the comment section.  Please use this area to pray for each other, list your prayer needs, or share something that He is putting on your heart.  I have often said that this blog belongs to all of us.  And, that we can all be the writers.  With this illness upon me, please take advantage of this opportunity, and encourage each other!  Blessings to all of you!

He IS Able!

  2. You are so right, Michele! (What you said in your last comment with the last post.) We should have thanksgiving in our hearts as we pray to our Lord, Jesus the Christ. I am so grateful for the wonderful people that come to this blog, and share...or don't! I am so grateful for the friends I have made here. I am MOST grateful for Jesus Christ--for His forgiveness, His Faithfulness, His dying on the cross for me, His GIFT of Salvation...He paid the price for each of us that go to Him and ask Him to be our Lord and Savior...for each of us that knows we are sinners and fall short of the Glory of God, for those of us that knows that we need His Forgiveness, and that His love and Faithfulness are endless... I thank each of you for your prayers, and I am praying for each of you that have requested prayer and even for those who have not asked for any prayer requests or needs.

    You are all amazing people! Keep sharing with each other...lift each other up...encourage each other to walk even closer with Him! I may be ill, but I am enjoying the extra time I am have in prayer. God Bless!

    He IS Able!

  3. I returned last night from a long awaited vacation. My DH and I celebrated our 35th anniversary with a trip to Door County , WI. We looked at it as the honeymoon we never had. I was never far from God's majesty. The awesomeness of his creation was overwhelming. I thank God for 35 years of marriage. Although, we have had many trials and tribulations we are still one.


Thank you so much for leaving your thoughts, ideas,prayer requests and comments! We love to read them all! And, if you had a prayer request, the Prayer Team will begin praying for your needs today. God Bless!
