A Bright Light?

Last night, I slept like a log.

Was it due to being overtired to the point of collapse?  Maybe. 

Of course, it might be due to the fact that a friend of mine called long-distance, to tell me they read my Life with Lynnie (LwL) entry yesterday and wanted to pray with me.  In fact, it probably is what helped; the prayer, I mean.  After all, prayer works!  Thank you, friend.  May God bless you for reaching out in prayer for me.

After all, God is good.  He provides for all our needs.  He provides for all my needs, for sure!

This is the same friend, who lives in Mississauga, who spent about three (3) months in Kenya.  He was there doing God's work.  A missions trip, for sure.

While there, he told me that he and a pastor friend entered a jail.  They spoke, prayed and as a result, 17 people were saved.  He told me those men literally ran to Jesus.  Praise God!  Thank You, Jesus!

Again, I appreciate the Christian love and support, but I especially appreciate the prayer my friend sent up for me.

It's been a strange week, for sure. 

In addition to hearing from this long-distance friend, I also heard from my Wichita, Kansas, USA friend, more than once this last week and a half, or so.  While it was good to hear her voice, our conversations were not of their normal variety.

Oh yes, we discussed many things, including the upcoming conference in November.  In case you didn't realize, N is my Christian friend who is organizing the conference.

We discussed the fact that our Canadian government passed legislation that forced our striking postal workers, back to work.  N was glad, for she had held off mailing an envelope to me, containing info regarding the non-profit organization she has had to set up, in order to proceed with the conference organizing.

Unfortunately, not all our conversation was on an upbeat, positive note.

N had recently experienced some emotional situations that she needed prayer for.  Not only had she lost a friend, who died; but, she also had a family heartbreak.  Her daughter lost the baby she was carrying.

What a heartbreak! 

If you could find it in your heart to pray for N's daughter and indeed their whole family, I would appreciate it.  After all, every good Christian knows that there is nothing greater or more rewarding than praying for others.

After all, we are called to be bright lights in a dark and dying world.  And, we are called to lift each other up, in prayer.

So, are you a bright light?  Do you spread the gospel message as we have been commanded?  Do you lift others up in prayer?  If so, I know you'll be rewarded.  God will bless you for this, friends.

Until next time...
