GOD Always Answers Prayer

Dear blog readers,

Happy Sabbath!

May this message from Dr. Robert Schuller inspire you to pray to God with renewed faith.

GOD Always Answers Prayer

When the idea is not right God says, "No."
No- when the idea is not the best.
No- when the idea is absolutely wrong.
No- when though it may help you, it could create problems for someone else.

When the time is not right, God says, "Slow."
What a catastrophe it would be if God answered every prayer at the snap of your fingers. Do you know what would happen? God would become your servant, not your master. Suddenly, God would be working for you instead of you working for God.

Remember: God's delays are not God's denials. God's timing is perfect. Patience is what we need in prayer.

When you are not right, God says, "Grow."
The selfish person has to grow in unselfishness.
The cautious person must grow courage.
The timid person must grow in confidence.
The dominating person must grow in sensitivity.
The critical person must grow in tolerance.
The negative person must grow in positive attitudes.
The pleasure-seeking person must grow in compassion for suffering people.

When everything is all right, God says, "Go."
Then miracles happen:
A hopeless alcoholic is set free!
A drug addict finds release!
A doubter becomes as a child in his belief.
Diseased tissue responds to treatment and healing begins.
The door to your dream suddenly swings open and there stands God saying, "Go!"

-- Written by Dr. Robert Schuller. 


"Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see."

Unfailing Love from the Heart of God

God knows us.


When you think no one's looking, God sees.

When you think no one's hearing, God hears.

When you think no one loves you, God loves you unconditionally.

So many times, people make the mistake of thinking they must be perfect and "clean" before coming to church or seeking God. It's comparable to trying to achieve physical fitness perfection without ever setting foot into a gym.

Dear blog readers,

You have a Creator. He is God.

You have a Redeemer. His name is Jesus.

You have a Comforter. He is the Holy Spirit.

My prayer for you today and always is that you will rest in God's love and know that you don't have to be perfect to come to Him. He wants you to come to Him just as you are. He knows all about your past, he cares about your present and He's ready to lead you into an AWESOME future!

Come to Jesus. Accept Him as your risen Lord and Savior and trust that the work which He began in you, He WILL perform it (carry it through completion)! :)

The evidence is in God's Word. Read Psalm 139 ( and be blessed!

Remember God

A song originally sung by Mark Schultz and Ginny Owens (sometimes Joy Williams too), "Remember Me" is a melodic duet to remember.

Makes me think-- All God asks is for us to remember HIM and have faith!

God wants us to remember Him before we eat (by saying grace).

God wants us to remember Him not only when we're in church, but when we're out in the world.

God wants us to remember Him when, as the song says, we're "old enough to preach, old enough to teach, old enough to leave."

God wants us to remember Him not only when  we're young and innocent and full of life, but when we're old and gray and feeling disillusioned by life.

Without further ado, please view this beautiful duet to Remember Me, performed by a mother and son:
