Take a Leap of Faith. You've heard of take it!
Looking for happiness? Love? Security? Forgiveness? Take a chance and simply try this every day for a week and see how you feel.

Before sleep, close your eyes, take a few very deep breaths and open your heart. Please pray honestly. Pray with your heart.  God is around you. God is beside you. God is within you. God is real. You be real, too.  Pray unselfishly for others, not just for yourself and your own family.  What do others you know need as well? The love you have and show for others will be returned to you. You'll see!

Pray according to God's will, not our own.  God knows what you need even before you do. Don't worry. Let the Lord guide your prayers and let His will be done, not your own. You have happiness; you have love and you have forgiveness. It is God's love. God will take care of you, believe and take this first step. The leap. God will bless you with his grace. It is easily the most awesome lesson we can experience while being alive!

One night a man had a dream. He dreamed he was walking along the beach with the Lord. Across the sky flashed scenes from his life. For each scene he noticed two sets of footprints in the sand: one belonging to him, and the other to the Lord.

When the last scene of his life flashed before him, he looked back at the footprints in the sand. He noticed that many times along the path of his life there was only one set of footprints. He also noticed that it happened at the very lowest and saddest times in his life.

This really bothered him and he questioned the Lord about it: "Lord, you said that once I decided to follow you, you'd walk with me all the way. But I have noticed that during the most troublesome times in my life, there is only one set of footprints. I don't understand why when I needed you most you would leave me."

The Lord replied: "My son, my precious child, I love you and I would never leave you. During your times of trial and suffering, when you see only one set of footprints, it was then that I carried you."

Knock, knock...He's there.
"So I say to you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.  For everyone who asks receive, and he who seeks find, and to him who knocks it will be opened."  (Luke11:9-10)

How Great?
O, lord , my god 

When I, in awesome wonder 
Consider all the world's thy hands have made 

I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder 

Thy power thru out the universe displayed.

How great thou art

On the Wings of a Dove
By: Ferlin Husky

When troubles surround us, When evils come 

The body grows weak, The spirit grows numb

When these things beset us, He doesn't forget us

He sends down His love

On the wings of a dove 

 When Jesus went down To the river that day
He was baptized In the usual way

And when it was done, God blessed his son

He sent him his love

On the wings of dove

On the wings of a snow-white dove 
He sends His pure sweet love

A sign from above 

On the wings of a dove 

When Noah had drifted On the flood many days
He searched for land In various ways 

Troubles, he had some, But wasn't forgotten 

He sent him His love

On the wings of a dove 

On the wings of a snow-white dove 
He sends His pure sweet love

A sign from above 

On the wings of a dove
