How awesome is our God. He sends us what we need way ahead of us even knowing what is about to cross our path. As Christians we know to be grateful even through our trials, and though it isn't always easy, when we stand steadfast, and sure of our Fathers direction, after the smoke clears, we always seem to find comfort and joy, even in the worst of circumstances.
I have found some special friendships, and so much unconditional support, from so many of you; each of you truly are a blessing in my life. How wonderful is it, knowing that our family out here is there when ever we need a lift, prayer, or word of encouragement; it's like having a bottomless well of water, always there to refresh us when we're weary.
Yes, our talks with our Father, the guidance of the Holy Spirit, and our studying of His word, brings us strength and wisdom, but sometimes as humans, the kind words and prayers of a fellow brother or sister, is like a physical hug from our Father, making it tangible, do you know what I mean?
For example, this week was my birthday and it was lovely, but I was so humbled and moved when I received 136 birthday wishes and prayers from my new family around the globe, through a machine I never thought I would figure out how to use. I know that's our Heavenly Father sending me encouragement and strength, I didn't even know I needed.
It has been a rough couple of months, but The Holy Spirit is really working through me again, giving me the concentration, wisdom, and understanding I have been waiting for, in order to start and complete my next book. Though I had already had two started, I was blocked, and then I wrote that poem about the rainbow and Wham, the flood gates opened, a new title and outline where written and we're off.
I share this because I will only be able to write one article a week, while I give my attention and devotion to this new work, but I will be following you all as well, trying to fit everyone in once a week to show my love and gratitude for all your love and support.
I pray for you all, may we all continue to feel our loving Fathers embrace, and always remember that in all things there are true blessings...God Bless Patricia©
