i forwarded this one of course and many sent it back how nice
i was taken aback when my friends emailed me back with passion saying how much he liked that email, so i thought i must share it here.

though please bare with me as i do intend to add more of my thoughts here on my faith journey starting to notice alot of these emails have the same ending

THIS WILL MAKE ALL OF US HUMBLE... Psalm 55:22 --- you really need to read this."Friends are God's way of taking care of us."This was written by a Hospice of Metro Denver physician.

I just had one of the most amazing experiences of my life, and wanted to share it with my family and dearest friends: I was driving home from a meeting this evening about 5, stuck in traffic on Colorado Blvd., and the car started to choke and splutter and die - I barely managed to coast, cursing, into a gas station, glad only that I would not be blocking traffic and would have a somewhat warm spot to wait for the tow truck. It wouldn't even turn over. Before I could make the call, I saw a woman walking out of the "quickie mart" building, and it looked like she slipped on some ice and fell into a Gas pump, so I got out to see if she was okay.When I got there, it looked more like she had been overcome by sobs than that she had fallen; she was a young woman who looked really haggard with dark circles under her eyes. She dropped something as I helped her up, and I picked it up to give it to her. It was a nickel. At that moment, everything came into focus for me: the crying woman, the ancient Suburban crammed full of stuff with 3 kids in the back (1 in a car seat), and the gas pump reading $4.95. I asked her if she was okay and if she needed help, and she just kept saying "I don't want my kids to see me crying," so we stood on the other side of the pump from her car. She said she was driving to California and that things were very hard for her right now. So I asked, "And you were praying?" That made her back away from me a little, but I assured her I was not a crazy person and said, "He heard you, and He sent me." I took out my card and swiped it through the card reader on the pump so she could fill up her car completely, and while it was fueling, walked to the next door McDonald's and bought 2 big bags of food, some gift certificates for more, and a big cup of coffee. She gave the food to the kids in the car, who attacked it like wolves, and we stood by the pump eating fries and talking a little. She told me her name, and that she lived in Kansas City . Her boyfriend left 2 months ago and she had not been able to make ends meet. She knew she wouldn't have money to pay rent Jan 1, and finally in desperation had finally called her parents, with whom she had not spoken in about 5 years. They lived in California and said she could come live with them and try to get on her feet there. So she packed up everything she owned in the car She told the kids they were going to California for Christmas, but not that they were going to live there.I gave her my gloves, a little hug and said a quick prayer with her for safety on the road. As I was walking over to my car, she said, "So, are you like an angel or something?" This definitely made me cry I said, "Sweetie, at this time of year angels are really busy, so sometimes God uses regular people."It was so incredible to be a part of someone else's miracle. And of course, you guessed it, when I got in my car it started right away and got me home with no problem. I'll put it in the shop tomorrow to check, but I suspect the mechanic won't find anything wrong. Sometimes the angels fly close enough to you that you can hear the flutter of their wings...Psalms 55:22 "Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and He shall sustain thee. He shall never suffer the righteous to be moved." My instructions were to pick four people that I wanted God to bless, especially for the months in 2006 , and I picked you. Please pass this to four people you want to be blessed and a copy back to me.This prayer is powerful and prayer is one of the best gifts we receive. There is no cost but a lot of rewards. Let's continue to pray for one another.Here is the prayer: "Father, I ask You to bless my children, grandchildren, friends, relatives and e-mail buddies reading this right now. Show them a new revelation of your love and power. Holy Spirit, I ask You to minister to their spirit at this very moment. Where there is pain, give them Your peace and mercy. Where there is self doubt, release a renewed confidence through Your grace, In Jesus' precious name. Amen." I know I picked more than four and you can, too.When Satan is knocking at your door, simply say, "Jesus, could You please get that for me?"Being blessed is GOOD...being HIGHLY FAVORED is best!

God wanted me to tell you something

music and praise

4 December 2006
I went to see a dvd that someone from church was holding a viewing. It's called the truth behind hiphop exodus into egypt (by It was quite a strong message with no apologies.

I understand many things that the ex-ministries were saying. However i still got to go out and find certain truths for myself. The gyst of the dvd was that we are influenced by the music we listen to. Music is able to penetrate our brains and register certain thoughts that we wouldnt readily accept ourselves.

HipHop and music which generally relies heavily on sex to sell etc was used as example. When you think about it. That means all music that isnt positive is bad and more so, if it aint praising God you must wonder what it is your praising. Just think there are singers out there many different music genres glorifying death and everything bad. mmmm....words are powerful

makes you think if we are blessing or cursing ourselves daily.

It does make me look at music differently now. However without prayer how else am igoing to know the truth for myself. Im sure God has a plan for me. I just hope i make my Father proud
