Not Too Far From Here

“Not Too Far From Here”
Not too far from here there are people facing giants and losses no one should have to bare such as losing/mourning the loss of their spouse, child, losing their home due to medical & burial expenses, saying “til we see you later” to a grandparent whose meeting Jesus tonight or met him recently, or a little girl going through major life changes such as “no mommy” to kiss her goodnight, read to her a favorite bedtime story or share what happened at school today because her mommy died and scared her now guardian may die, too.

Not too far from here there are those needing comfort, peace, and strength to face the continual GIANTS that keep occurring. There are those battling sicknesses, death, the loss of property, the empty nest syndrome, seniors who sit home every day hoping someone will stop in for a visit or a call with complete presence from their children, grandchildren, or neighbors, the loss of a job, fellow co-workers who out of jealousy make going to work so unbearable, students being left out of activities-last to be picked-picked on-laughed at/made fun of- yes all forms of bullying, adults who use or demean others in the workplace/church/community, teachers needing lots of prayers as they’re expected to not only teach curriculum but behavior/respect/good daily health/hygiene habits/right over wrong/how to deal with anger/everyday issues responsibly/etc, and for others, financial setbacks, looking for love and attention in all the wrong faces/places.

Not too far from here, there are teens afraid to smile because they need braces the family can’t afford because of finances, income, or heavy medical expenses of their other child. Not too far from here, there’s a child just wanting their Dad/Mom to be present in their life, if just once a month. Not too far from here, parents of blended families are trying so hard to bring unity among the children and other parent(s)-for the well being of all-especially the children. Not too far from here, there are a lot of teens/adults needing Jesus. Not too far from here there are young boys needing a father figure/a male mentor. Not too far from here, there are young girls needing a mother figure/a female mentor. Not too far from here, there are parents missing their adult child(ten) in their lives. Not too far from here, there are people facing all types of addiction(s)/strongholds, and families battling to help them. Not too far from here, there are law enforcement, emergency responders, firemen, and our military who are risking their lives to save others while their spouses/families are asking God to protect them. Not too far from here there are spouses and children dealing with the day to day issues of being a spouse/parent as their parent returns home from military service-all trying to deal with the mental/physical scars of war.

Not too far from here, there are relationships crumbling. Not too far from here there are homes, churches, communities, states, and nations crumbling.

Reach DEEP into your heart and Listen to your heartstrings. PRAY!
There are so many good people and blessed people in our day to day lives. There are also people who battle for control to be numero one, which could be from having been numero one in the lives of all they’ve ever known, needing to be in the limelight because they’ve had to fight disabilities others didn’t, or because they just don’t know Jesus, because without HIM/HIS PRESENCE, there’s no true JOY and you’ll use any or all means available to be liked, get praises, etc. Since they’re no substance to such, they still climb.
There are so many people facing their own Giants.

Let’s pray for all these in need! God knows the hearts and the needs.
Prayer is life’s Internet-prayer is bringing the spiritual world and the physical world together so they can overlap.
Pray without ceasing.
One could pray nonstop for the needs around them in they would “open their eyes” and “open their hearts”. There’s needs all around us.
God is love! It’s God’s mission as a missionary God to bring about the global purpose/COVENANT HE MADE WITH ABRAHAM!
It’s the common thread throughout the Bible from Genesis to Revelation. Praying without ceasing isn’t to start praying and not stop. It’s to remain in a state of prayer. Be prepared to lift prayers throughout your day. If someone asks for prayer, stop and pray right then for them. It’s that moment in asking they are needing it more than ever. It’s also later you may get so busy in your life, you forget.
Don’t fall captive or be baited in Satan’s trap. Pray that God works through the Bait of Satan and the offenses you’re holding on to that aren’t yours, may not be the truth, as could all stem from one or two and/or who through disabilities, jealousy, personal goals, intentionally or unintentionally may just be Satan’s Bait to divide, destroy, and/or create enough of a crack that others are hurt and/or stops needs from being met, as Satan smiles and God weeps.
Praying! Won’t you join me?
Treasure life!
Treasure the physical, mental, and spiritual life-all three are needed to be healthy!
