When you think things can not get worse…

 

I received a text filled with fear and what hit my heart as well, the Paranoia of my best friend, creeping back stronger with good reasons. God put my Best Friend back in my life so I could offer help for her sister. Now, I don’t understand this picture but am asking the Lord to make it clear to me.

Well, I pray, for her sake, my best friend will NOT lose her apartment.

Jill sent me 5 emails regarding her Health Care, Medicaid,

The Governator of Virginia, in order to gain political points, is NOT going to take care of the most vulnerable of his Citizen and blame the White House for his shortcomings.

The Governator of Virginia decided not to replace them with something different that would still protect the Mentally and Physically ill, both handicapped People.

Now, my friend is terrified of losing her home because the new Federal law is applied with no regard for the sick even if the State has the Power to make a new and better plan. All this is political,. SHAME ON THE GOVERNATOR! (I am not even taking the time to look up his name)

The new law takes away some benefits badly needed by my friend and thousands of other handicapped People.

I am shocked and yes, afraid for her.

The new, inaltereted law I was told does not pay anymore for Class 3 and 4 Medications and her food stamps will be taken away!!

My friend works hard in maintaining herself independent and others like her, with the help that they did receive, did not make all these people like me, dependent on their families.

I have Insurance from my husband Employer.

I am stunned and again, from the plan on going to see her because she was feeling better to this, I  am afraid of the fragile state of her mind.

This is all for now.

I pray for the Father’s Mercy and for all the families of those in need to make the unfeeling Governator change his mind.

 

Faith in All the Ages

February 17, 2018

“And what shall I more say? for the time would fail me to tell of Gedeon, and of Barak, and of Samson, and of Jephthae; of David also, and Samuel, and of the prophets.” (Hebrews 11:32)

Hebrews 11 is a thrilling catalog of the faithful servants of God in all the ancient ages. There were Abel, Enoch, and Noah before the Flood; then Abraham, Sarah, Isaac, Jacob, and Joseph in the patriarchal age; followed by Moses, Joshua, and Rahab in the time of the exodus and conquest. Finally, today’s verse summarizes the periods of the judges (Gideon, Barak, Samson, and Jephthae), the kings (Samuel, David), and the prophets.

All these were men and women of great faith, though each had to endure great testing. They, as the writer says, “stopped the mouths of lions, quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword . . . had trial of cruel mockings and scourgings, yea, moreover of bonds and imprisonment: They were stoned, they were sawn asunder . . . destitute, afflicted, tormented” (Hebrews 11:33-37).

In every age, men and women of faith were more often than not despised and persecuted by the world (even by the religious world!), but the Bible notes, parenthetically, that it was they “of whom the world was not worthy” (Hebrews 11:38). In God’s sight, they all “obtained a good report through faith” (Hebrews 11:39), and this is worth more than all the world, for it is the entrance into a far better and eternal world.

Note that faith is not a sentimental wishfulness but a strong confidence in God and His Word, through Jesus Christ, who is Himself “the author and finisher of our faith” (Hebrews 12:2). Like those of past ages, we can also “run with patience the race that is set before us” (Hebrews 12:1) through the faith He offers us. HMM

Lesson 1—Healing and God’s Covenants

This is Just a little extract from an Healing “Promises” of God.

I might add some more if liked it.

Some time ago, in a local church prayer service, one of the recent converts was heard to pray, “O God! Please do something; please do something!” The pastor did not interrupt the prayer, but after the service he counseled the young man, explaining, “Son, it isn’t necessary to address God so indefinitely. He is a covenant-making and covenant-keeping God. You can ask for, and receive from the Lord, any one of His precious blessings and benefits revealed in His Holy Word. The Bible contains hundreds of such promises.”

The dictionary defines a covenant as follows: “A formal, solemn, and binding contract between two or more parties especially for the performance of some action, or transfer of assets, usually modified by certain conditions.” The Bible is actually a Covenant revealing what God will do for His people under what conditions. Many scholars prefer the terms Old and New Covenant to Old and New Testament. In fact, the Old Covenant contains several lesser covenants, some of which are conditional and some of which are unconditional. In Exodus 15:26 God makes a healing covenant with His people:

If you diligently heed the voice of the Lord your God and do what is right in His sight, give ear to His commandments and keep all His statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you which I have brought on the Egyptians. For I am the Lord who heals you. (Read the whole context, vv. 22–27.)
