Re: Daily Devotional; formerly Chaplains Corner
That is so true.I have had 3 major surgeries in the past year.I would pray beforehand and just asked to watch over me and guide the hands of the surgeans.Like you said he took care of me and gave me strength to go through it and He let see another beautiful day.Sometimes I feel people ask for the material stuff too much but God has always shown me the way and provided oppurtunities and gave me the strength to ruck up and soldier on.I feel the most important prayer is to ask for forgiveness and strength to act like He wants us to live.We all fall short on His expectations and need to ask Him to guide us down the righteous path.We recieve blessings daily but some are just too self centered and never understand.Kinda like the new obozo thing.You didnt do it-God did that.Thanks Terry and The Lord for giving me oppurtunity this morning to reflect and see where I need to head today and everyday.
On a positive note.When my sister picked me up in Houston monday we had a long talk.I was telling her about some programs I had been involved in to help the needy and she is a greek orthodox and wanted her church to be more involved in community service.God found an oppurtunity and it gave her some good ideas on the way to do something positive for our needy.
