Hope




















"My soul waits in silence for God only; From Him is my salvation. He only is my rock and my salvation. My stronghold; I shall not be greatly shaken." Psalm 62:1-2


As I sit in the quiet of the morning, I soak in the presence of my Heavenly Father. He is the rock that holds me steady when all else fells. He is the strength that embodies my being. Through the difficulties of this life, I have leaned heavily on Him and He has never left me. He is my hope. He is the only hope. I cling to Him from the core of my being.

Praying God's peace, comfort, and healing touch on all who long for it,

Andrea

This is one of my favorite verses, Andrea.

What beautiful words for me to read just as I am about to call it a day over here...and I know your day is just starting over there!

Pls. pray for my grandson Matthew. I just got word from his mom that Matt is sick with fever and cough. I will appreciate your prayers.

Hi, Andrea:
Thank you for your faithfulness to our friendship. I'm praying for your health today. I've been off line for several days because I'm praying a lot. Thank you for your concern for my family. My daughter is in a huge spiritual battle.

Love you!

This is something that I really needed to hear.....I have been living with hope, trust and faith these past few years on certain issues in my life and I really needed a "boost" in the hope dept.

thank you....you have brought a blessing to my day.

Sister Andrea, may I ask you to please pray for me as I go to work tonight and tomorrow? For the Lord to shield me against the flu viruses going on at my workplace. My coworker told me that it had spread to other segments in one unit. Other inmates perhaps are faking their mandowns so they could also be checked out even if they don't have the flu. So can't imagine how our night will be like. It was already busy last week I was there. Thank you sister for your friendship and being a prayer buddy. God bless. Have a great weekend and praying that your pain goes away in Jesus' Name. I know it's not fun having my own neck injury many yrs. ago. Love you in Christ.
