Provision... A True Blessing!

When I left off writing yesterday's Life with Lynnie (LwL) entry, I wrote about how God provided for me, by providing encouragement that I so badly needed at a time when I felt devastated.  I praise God for this!

To continue on from what I wrote about yesterday, I left Heritage Park Alliance Church (HPAC) in plenty of time to go visit Gordon's grave.  Since the cemetary was close by, I was there within a handful of minutes.

As I climbed through a small snowbank created as a result of the snowplow clearing the roadway, I was grateful I had remembered to wear boots.

It was cold standing there, by Gordon's grave.  Being an open area, with limited number of trees to block off some of the wind, I didn't stay long.  Just long enough to do what I normally do.

Off I went to go worship at my own church.

With plenty of time to spare, I found a seat, and visited with a few friends.  Worship time was good.  One thing I feel blessed about, is the fact that a gospel message is preached, there.

Is this important?  Well, some people and some churches obviously think not, because over the years, I have attended many places of worship, where I never heard a gospel message.  But, in my opinion, yes; it is important. 

After all, even though church services are meant to be times for believers to worship God, there are usually people in attendance, who may not be saved.  I believe we must always make efforts to fulfill God's Great Commission and preach a gospel message. 

God uses those seeds planted, in the lives of unbelievers, to lead them to salvation.  And, what is more important than salvation?

Afterwards, I went to the nearby rehab centre, where my co-worker/real estate partner/friend C, is currently living. 

I thank all who have prayed for C, for even after all these weeks of rehab, he is still unable to stand on his own.  This week, he will be having an MRI, to determine if there is something he may need surgery for.  Continued prayer is appreciated.  May God bless you...

Arriving home, I telephoned C's daughter J, who is currently in hospital.  Yes, I am asking for prayer for J, in addition to the prayer I requested for her father.  And again, I thank you.  May God bless each of you...

Reflecting over Sunday's eventful day, I feel blessed that God, my Father, loves me.

While people may let us down, God never does.  He is always there for us; for me.  He provides for our every need.  Usually, even before we are aware we even have a need.

Not to mention, that He blesses us in various ways.

Like how He blessed me when R invited me to speak at one of her church's small group meetings.  To some, this might not be an unimportant thing; to others, it might seem to be overwheming.  But, to me, it was an answer to prayer.

You see, I had truly been praying for God to change my life.  And, guide me in the process.  I had been asking for Him to show me that somehow, somewhere, I have a purpose to fulfill.  One that will be honouring to Him.  And, one that I could physically accomplish.

It may sound silly to some, but I am grateful God provided an opportunity for me to work for Him.  He answered my prayer.  For this, I praise God and thank Jesus!


Until next time...
