  1. I am being honest here. I love you all in incourage. I glad God put you guys my path. As I have grew as Follower of his. Through the things you all have wrote. Even though I live in another part of the world. I know I not probably get to meet you amazing people until I get to Glory one day. But alot of what you guys have wrote has been spot on to help me for that day. Like today’s title of today reading. It is so true To him who keeps us from stumbling. Yes that speak volumes for me. As Jesus has kept me from stumbling so many times into things like wrong friends. Who would tear me down the wrong path and away from Jesus. Into things I should not be doing. Even away from those who say they are Followers of Jesus. They are the biggest gossips. They talk about other Followers of Jesus when they should be praying for them. Plus say other things about them. That are not good to me. Then if not careful you find yourself getting caught up in the chat about the people they are talking about. That is wrong in Jesus eyes. As that is Gossip. If you nothing good to say. Say nothing. Just pray for them. Jesus has kept me from being around them too often. Only when I have too. Watch what I say when with them. No get caught up in there gossip about people you know that they shouldn’t be talking about. If the person they are talking about has hurt them. When they should be praying for them. Even They should be forgivening that person. So Jesus keeps me from stumbling at these times. I am very thankful for that. As people like that in your walk with Jesus can be people Jesus will want you to see very little of. If have to see them. As Jesus to help you watch what you say when with them and keep you from stumbling. As it wrong to get into the chat with them. When the person talking about the people that have hurt them should be praying for them and asking Jesus to help to them to forgive them. Love Dawn Ferguson-Little xxx

  2. Thankful that God remains with us – even when we fall short! Would love to see answer to prayers for two of my children that have walked away from God. I am having trouble staying positive in prayer and hopeful in the face of what I see. Help me to have faith in the unseen. I want to stand firm but feel so weak. Thank you Jesus that you remain with us!

  3. In Courage,

    We are blessed immensely that God doesn’t forsake us when we sin. His mercies are new each & every day. All He asks of us is to confess our sins daily to Him. I do so by using a “Dangerous Prayer”-“Search me O God & try me. Know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any wickedness in me & lead me in the way everlasting.” “Cleanse my heart O God make it ever true”. Asking God to get rid of any & all sins in my heart before I pray for others. That pleases God to no end. He understands our humanity & knows we will mess up all the time. Praising God for loving & forgiving me. Not letting me or anyone stumble without helping us up.

    Blessings 🙂
