God loves you..

and never ever forget that..

some times when things doesn't go your way, you'll say to yourself.. where's God?? He says He loves me but He is not here for me when i need Him the most.. well, you know what?? He is there..

and sometimes when you put your whole heart into a prayer wishing and hoping that He grants your heart deepest desires then WHAM He doesn't grant you that one wish.. you'll be devastated and again question where is God?? He is there.. its just that He knows better whats good for you and whats not..

you know, there was once i hoped that life would come with a step by step manual.. then things would be so much easier and everything would be perfect.. and then a good friend of mine said that life actually does come with a manual.. the BIBLE.. thanks alot.. then of course deer had to say that if life came with a manual, the first thing for me to do is to give him a hug.. (sigh.. great help huh??)

so.. here's your reward for "listening" to my thoughts.. a STORY!! woohoo..

There was a little boy visiting his grandparents on their farm. He wasgiven a slingshot to play with out in the woods. He practiced in thewoods, but he could never hit the target. Getting a little discouraged,he headed back for dinner.

As he was walking back he saw Grandma's pet duck. Just out of impulse, he let the slingshot fly, hit the duck square in the head, and killed it. He was shocked and grieved. In a panic, he hid the dead duck in the wood pile, only to see his sister watching! Sally had seen it all, but she said nothing.

After lunch the next day Grandma said, "Sally, let's wash the dishes." But Sally said, "Grandma, Johnny told me he wanted to help in the kitchen." Then she whispered to him, "Remember the duck?" So Johnny did the dishes.

Later that day, Grandpa asked if the children wanted to go fishing and Grandma said, "I'm sorry but I need Sally to help make supper." Sallyjust smiled and said," Well that's all right because Johnny told me he wanted to help." She whispered again, "Remember the duck?" So Sally went fishing and Johnny stayed to help.

After several days of Johnny doing both his chores and Sally's, he finally couldn't stand it any longer. He came to Grandma and confessedthat he had killed the duck. Grandma knelt down, gave him a hug, and said, "Sweetheart, I know. You see, I was standing at the window and I saw the whole thing, but because I love you, I forgave you. I was just wondering how long you would let Sally make a slave of you."

Thought for the day and every day thereafter?

Whatever is in your past, whatever you have done ... and the devil keeps throwing it up in your face (lying, cheating, debt,fear, bad habits, hatred, anger, bitterness, etc.) whatever it is.

You need to know that God was standing at the window and He saw the whole thing. He has seen your whole life. He wants you to know that He loves you and that you are forgiven. He's just wondering how long you will let the devil make a slave of you.

The great thing about God is that when you ask for forgiveness, He not only forgives you, but He forgets. It is by God's grace and mercy thatwe are saved.

Go ahead and make the difference in someone's life today.

God is at the window
