GIVE LIFE TO YOUR FAITH
Are you putting action behind your faith today? If we aren’t doing something that shows that we believe God, the Bible says that our faith is dead. Dead faith won’t accomplish anything. We have to give life to our faith by putting actions behind it. And, it doesn’t have to be anything big, just something that shows your faith in God. For example, I know people who are down and discouraged. They pray, “God, please. Get me out of this discouragement. God, give me my joy back. God, give me a new beginning.” And yes, prayer is important, but it’s only part of the process. What really causes God to act is when you do something about it—you get back up, dust yourself off, and say, “You know what? I’m not going to stay down. This is the day the Lord has made! I am going to be happy and have a great day.” That’s putting action behind your faith.
I encourage you today to let your actions give life to your faith. Show the world that you are trusting God’s Word. As you do, you’ll give life to your faith, and you’ll step into new levels of His victory and blessing in every area of your life!
A PRAYER FOR TODAY
Father God, thank You for Your Word that builds faith in my heart and refreshes my soul. I choose to put action behind my faith today. I choose to give life to my faith so that You can accomplish Your will in me. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.

THIS IS BEAUTIFUL!!TRY NOT TO CRY..
She jumped up as soon as she saw the surgeon out of the operating room. She said: 'How is my little boy? Is he going to be alright? When can I see him?
The surgeon said, 'I'm sorry.We did all we could,but your boy did'nt make it'
Sally said,'Why do little children get cancer? Doesn't God care any more? Where were you, God when my son needed you?'
The surgeon asked, 'Would you like sometime alone with your son? One of the nurses will be out in a few minutes, before he's transported to the university.'
Sally asked the nurse to stay with her while she say good bye to her son. She ran her fingers lovingly through his thick red curly hair. 'Would you like a lock of his hair?' the nurse asked. Sally nodded yes. The nurse cut a lock of the boy's hair, put it in a plastic bag and handed it to Sally.
The mother said,'It was Jimmy's idea to donate his body to the University for study.He said it might help somebody else.'I said no at first,but Jimmy said,'Mom,I won't be using it after I die. Maybe it will help some other boy spend one more day with his Mom.' She went on,'My Jimmy had a heart of gold.' Always thinking of someone else. Always wanting to help others if he could.'
Sally walked out of the Children's Mercy Hospital for the last time,after spending most of the last six months there. She put the bag with Jimmy's belongings on the seat beside her in the car.
The drive home was difficult. It was even harder to enter the empty house. She carried Jimmy's belongings, and the plastic bag with the lock of his hair to her son,s room.
She started placing the model cars and other personal things back in his room exactly where he had always kept them.
She lay down across his bed and, hugging his pillow, cried herself to sleep.
It was around midnight when Sally awoke.
Lying beside her on the bed was a folded letter. The letter said:
I know you're going to miss me; but don't think that I will ever forget you, or stop loving you, just 'cause I'm not around to say 'I LOVE YOU'. I will always love you, Mom, even more with each day...Someday we will see each other again. Until then, if you want to adopt a little boy so you won't be so lonely, thats okay with me, He can have my room and old stuff to play with. But, if you decide to get a girl instead, she probably wouldn't like the same things us boys do. You'll have to buy her dolls and stuff girls like, you know.
Don't be sad thinking about me. This really is a neat place. Grandma and Grandpa met me as soon as I got here and showed me around some, but it will take along time to see everything. The angels are so cool.I love to watch them fly. And you know what? Jesus doesn't look like any of his pictures. Yet when I saw Him, I knew it was Him. Jesus himself took me to see GOD ! And guess what,Mom? I got to sit on God's knee and talk to Him, like I was somebody important..That's when I told Him that I wanted to write you a letter, to tell you good bye and everything.
But I already knew that wasn't allowed. Well you know what Mom? God handed me some paper and His own personal pen to write you this letter I think Gabriel is the name of the angel who is going to drop this letter off to you. God said to me to give you the answer to one of the questios you asked Him; Where was He when I needed Him? 'God said He was in the same place with me,as when His son Jesus was on the cross.He was right there,as He always is with all His children.
Oh,by the way, Mom, no one else can see what I've written except you. To everyone else this is just a blank piece of paper. Isn't that cool? I have to give God His pen back now,He needs it to write some more names in the Book of Life. Tonight I get to sit at the table with Jesus for supper. I'm sure the food will be great.
Oh, I almost forgot to tell you. I don't hurt anymore, the cancer is all gone..I'm glad because I couldn't stand that pain anymore and God couldn't stand to see me hurt so much,either. That's when He sent The Angel of Mercy to come get me..The Angel said I was a Special Delivey! How about that?
Signed with Love from God,Jesus & Me.

In our daily life,We are always running out of time for daily things that we should do,Sometimes we donot know when or where to start or how we should balance our time for a day.Preparing for work,tidying the household chores,cooking the family breakfast,teaching our children in their daily homeworks and so on and so forth..
This is life we used to be, Sometimes it is boring enough to do the usual daily chores in our everyday life.Specially when we start the day without planning.Planning our time is the best thing we can do to make our day complete.
Even our GOD do everything with his MASTER PLAN.He did the heaven and earth with series of plan from day one to day seven...
His plan for Salvation of souls when He send His ONLY Begotten SON to us.
His plan for us is not to HURT us but GIVE us HOPE and a FUTURE..
So we must do everything with a plan.Planning is the best part of our life that we should always do.
Try to start the 1st day of the week up to the last day of the week with a plan,just as what GOD DID..and you will see everything will be put in ORDER...And when everything is place in order peace and joy will follow in our heart...

Peace and joy is one thing that money cant buy...You have power,authority and even all th riches in the world but this two things cannot be easily acquired unless we cast all our burdens to our LORD and GOD..And we must learn to have faith on HIM and acknowledge HIM as our Lord and GOD who is the Maker and Creator of the Universe..

WHY DO WE EXIST...What is the purpose of our LIFE ???
People asked , What is the purpose of life ? Why are we here ? why do we exist in this world we lived ? So many questions need to be answered...
Rick Warren insights author and pastor of the book PURPOSE DRIVEN LIFE ,having his wife now with cancer and him having "wealth" from the book sales. In an incredible short interview with him told that LIFE IS PREPARATION TO ETERNITY. WE were MADE to LAST FOREVER, and GOD wants us to be with HIM in HEAVEN.
One day our HEART will STOP and that will be the END of our BODY but not hte END of US...
We may live 60 to 100 years on earth , but we are going to spend trillion of years in eternity.This is the warm up act - the dressed rehearsal. God wants us to practice on earth that we will do forever in eternity.
We were made by God and for God , and until you figure that out , life is'nt going to make sense.
Life is a series of problems . Either you are in one right now, you're just coming out of one, or your getting ready to go into another one.
The reason for this is that ,God is more interested in your character than your comfort.
God is more interested in making your life HOLY,, than He is making your life HAPPY.
We can be reasonably happy here on earth , but thats not the goal of life. The goal is to grow in character.., in Christ likeness...
