When life stops…for a moment…

3:23 Daniel “and these three men, firmly tied, fell into the blazing furnace.“ (NIV)

The king ordered the furnace to be seven times hotter. It was so hot that those close to the three died instantly from the heat. Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego fell into the blazing furnace. It was the moment of truth. It was the end… OR was it? For us it could be…cancer… down-sizing… divorce… death of a loved one… bankruptcy… and so on. Life can change in a moment. We can’t know what’s next. We only need to know that God will be with us… through it all! You are precious to Him. He will not abandon you. Never give up on Him! The best is yet to come!

Please send this to friends who are in need of HELPthe kind that God can give. Ask if they ever felt abandoned and alone. Ask who they reached out to in that moment and what happened next. Give them time to tell the whole story. We cannot know the pains that some people have endured. We cannot gloss of the challenges that they have faced and overcome. Yet, we can tell them that there is a Savior who loves them. We know that God will see them through this life and into the life yet to come. Give them Good News. Tell them to Take Time For God’s Word© often each day or as you face the worst situations and at 3:23 am or pm. There are ‘memory verses’… those that bring help and hope and trust. And, there are ‘memorable verses’… those that remind us of what others have faced, and they came through it with the help of God. This is a memorable verse. It happened in a moment. It seemed that all was lost. The end. Yet, it was only a new beginning. All fears were gone. No pain. No sorrow. Something new… totally new. The impossible was happening. It was happening to you. How was that possible? It was God… and God alone who walked you through it. That’s what He does. He takes us through our darkest times and brings us back into the light. Give Him the thanks and praise… give Him the glory!

We pray for all the judges and those who support our courts and legal system of justice at all levels. These women and men dedicate themselves to support and uphold the laws which have been enacted. They seek to offer fair and unbiased views to those pleading for their causes. It is a tough job. It is a thankless job. It can be a lonely job. Let them know that you appreciate what they do. Tell them that you are praying for them. Do your civic duty to serve on a jury, if summoned. Be a blessing to them. Be an advocate for justice… and mercy. Pass it on to those who are headed for the blazing furnace to show them that there is a God of love who can still rescue them… live the Good News!
