Urgent Prayer

Dear friends...

Please be in prayer for another dear Christian woman recently diagnosed with cancer. It is very very serious. The cancer has spread and she is in much pain. She is in her late 40's with grown children. She has been through some very difficult trials in the past few years.

God knows all things...he does all things well, though we may not understand it all at this time. I've said this many times in my writings...because it is true.

The blessed trust of knowing the LORD Jesus, is beyond my words...it must be present in your own heart. Walking daily with Him and watching the work of God in hearts..in your own life...is truly the work of Grace...moment by moment...giving each believer glimpses of His care.

He will care for this dear Saint. He will comfort. He will do His good pleasure for all to know. God is with us.

So many songs come to my heart when I write these words. Songs of comfort..songs of peace in knowing the LORD of Glory is in control.

Oh to see his blessed face one day...for some sooner than others.

Face to face with Christ my Saviour...Face to face what will it be?
When with rapture I behold Him, Jesus Christ who died for me.

Face to face I shall behold Him, Far beyond the starry sky;
Face to face, in all His glory, I shall see him by and by!

What rejoicing in His presence, When are banished grief and pain,
When the crooked ways are straightened And the dark things shall be plain.

Face to face I shall behold Him, Far beyond the starry sky;
Face to face, in all His glory, I shall see him by and by!



It is difficult for many people to comprehend times like this, but we must look forward and trust God's work. Sometimes years down the road...the glories of God's work are manifest. The WHY's of life. Some we may not know until we see the LORD.

But know this...it will have been done in truth, justice and for a Godly purpose.

I like what a Preacher said once... You must rest on the naked WORD OF GOD...and nothing else, for assurance and comfort of peace. Nothing can rest the soul like the WORD OF GOD.

Read St. John 1:1-3,14

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

The same was in the beginning with God.

All things were made by him; and without him was not anything made that was made.

And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.


God bless you..

HOPE

Already prayed for your friend while sitting here. The Lord's mercies be hers. I know of so many under this burden of cancer right now. Thanks for posting that wonderful hymn. I haven't heard it in so long.

I've just prayed for your friend and as the Lord leads, will remember her and her dear family in prayer.

So many are suffering from this dreadful disease including my brother-in-law.

Blessings to you!

I just prayed for her. So many seem to be going through such rough times, but the Lord is our strength.

I love the song you posted. Haven't heard it in a long time.

I have just prayed for your friend and will continue to do so. May God's will be done in her life and may He use this in some way to touch someone who does not know Him in a personal way. She is so blessed to have you, Hope for a friend. connie
