When I am lost..HE is found

When I am lost He is found
When I put me to the side I can clearly see HIM
I hear HIM calling me closer
Only HE knows the real me
In spite of me HE still loves

To live is to live for YOU
To die is gain to be with YOU
Life begins after death
I want to put me to the side so I can do YOUR will

I want to see YOU

Operation Christmas Child

And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. Matthew 25:40

Last year I had the privilege to participate in Operation Christmas Child. Operation Christmas Child shows the love of Jesus through shoe box gift distributions donated to needy children worldwide and spreading the saving gospel of Jesus Christ.

My family has collected items through out the year to make our boxes. We are including in the gift boxes gospel tracts, toothbrushes, toothpaste, pens, pencils, note pads, deodorant, toys and hair accessories. Prayerfully consider collecting supplies and preparing your own gift boxes. National Collection Week is November 16-23.

There is still about 2 months until collection of the boxes begins however, those who are interested in participating have enough time to collect gifts to include in their boxes. Here is a link to find your nearest drop-off location. You are asked to donate $7.00 for each box donated to help cover shipping and other project costs.

My family consider it a blessing to be able to participate in Operation Christmas Child. My daughter was so excited again this year to collect supplies to pack the boxes. If you have participated in this program, please comment on how contributing has been a blessing to you and your family.

God bless you :)


The Operation Christmas Child ministry extends far beyond a gift-filled shoe box. The goal of the project is to offer children the opportunity to participate in the Operation Christmas Child Discipleship Program, and to give every graduate of this exciting program a New Testament in their local language. In 2009-2010, an estimated 1.9 million children will have the opportunity to participate in the Discipleship Program, with an estimated 1.2 million of these boys and girls completing the series of Bible lessons. The program encourages children to grow in their faith and to share their faith with their friends.

Loves Bears All

This past Saturday, due to the weather, street evangelizing was cancelled. My husband and I decided to run some errands. As I was making phone calls and arrangements to prepare for our outing I realized that we needed to leave right away to make good time.

In all my worrying about making "good time", I did not pray that morning as I usually do. However, my husband and tween did make time to pray and present their lives and their day to the Lord.

I noticed that my day was not going as planned. For ex. As I was at the register to pay for some items we were purchasing I overlooked that I had coupons for 2 items (Note: the coupons were in my hand). The cashier instructed me to go to the customer service dept. for a price adjustment. So I did. The cashier was not sure how to preform the price adjustment therefore we were there for about 20 minutes of her trying to figure out the return. After that we had to wait for another cashier to attempt the return. She also made some errors and we were there for another few minutes to complete a transaction that totaled a refund of $1.35.
(God in HIS infinite mercy allowed me to save over $30.00 in my BJ's shopping trip a short while after.)

My husband throughout our day had the peace that surpasses all understanding. He was helpful, loving, understanding and kind to me despite my hurridness to get things done. He truly demonstrated to me 1 Corinthians 13:4a which reads "Love is patient, Love is kind. Love does not envy; is not boastful; is not conceited; does not act improperly; is not selfish". Verses 7-8a reads "bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends.

Despite my shortcomings my husband loved me through our day just the way Jesus Christ through HIS mercy loved me through it. Jesus loves me enough to bring correction to my life. He loves me enough to bring a word of warning (a BIC preached Thursday mentioning not abandoning our first love)that whenever I try to do anything in my own strength it will not come to pass as planned.

Since Saturday evening the Holy Spirit has been ministering me up to last night culminating with Prayer Service at church about my not praying that morning. I know that my lifeline is HE who gave me life. My hope is HE who gave me a hope and a future. My dependency is on HIM that loves me and bears me. Lord, allow me never to forget that I need to seek you first. You deserve the first fruits of my day.

I thank you Lord for the mercy and favor you have showered me with. Thank you because when I am unfaithful you ALWAYS remain faithful. Thank you for the patience you have with me when I don't deserve it. Thank you Jesus!
