Lasr night I remembered with clarity an incident when a south sea Island man prayed with me. His eyes focussed heavenwards and his hands lifted in worship as he said
He explained to me his prayer meant GOD BLESS YOU but powerfully expressed much more.
It was asking of the ALMIGHTY that HE would pour out a blessing more than he as a mortal man asking could comprehend or understand. May the ALMIGHTY One who rules eternity be the blesser of your life.
Travelling with my Saviour through the hills and valleys of life I can truly affirm the truth contained in this prayer.
This is my prayer on this mid-week morning for all out there, that as you focus forward, you will know journeying with HIM,, living with Word and worship, you too will experience HIS bounteous BLESSINGS. a-men.
I m a wife, mother and grandmother. I have always enjoyed writing even from an early age. My book Beyond the Ashes has been written as a labour of love. All the characters are real to me and their story needed to be told. As a Christian my desire is to write General Fiction stories about real people but Hope and a desire for 'better' will always be part of the journey. I have had several short stories published over the years and moderate success in writing competitions.
I realized as I was thinking today (30/01/15) that perhaps I should add here that I have had life experiences of many valley times but also many mountain top experiences. I can understand and be beside anyone who finds their life in tatters because I have 'been' there. Of course as I have got older as well there have been the added sorrows of losing not only older family members but also one by one finding the dearest of friends and the ones of greatest support and care also dying. On the site of rich mountains has been my certainty of the value of marriage and how grateful I am that after loss and sadness I made a happy and long-lasting marriage commitment. The one who was my best friend back then is still my best friend 45 years later. Beyond the Ashes touches upon the POWER of LOVE when folk can forget about their own personal 'feelings' and reach out in LOVE to a desperate and broken person.
Hugs to you Faye for this beautiful blessing you poured out upon us. I am grateful that you shared and appreciate the reminder.😊
