Day 19: The Gratitude Challenge

As you probably can imagine, I ask God a lot of questions during my prayer time. These questions have nothing to do with doubting who He is but more to do with asking Him if my desires are aligned with what He wants for me.

Personally, I do not want to pursue things that aren't aligned with His will anymore. It's just a waste of energy and time for me.

In my many "talks' with the Lord, I have a question that keeps on being brought up. Sometimes, I feel like I heard the answer. But sometimes I feel like I to hang on a bit more and listen more closely.

Then I receive the sweetest, most thoughtful letter in Facebook from Tita Coney -- a woman of such strong faith. The content itself is long but allow me to publish the central message of her letter.

Hi Sam!


How are you? Saw you from afar at the last day of our fast at the Fort 7pm service. As I was looking your way, the Lord impressed something in my heart about you and Rob but I didn't get a chance to talk to you that night.


The Lord is saying to you both...."Is anything too hard for me?" :-)

And the letter ended with...

Nothing is impossible with the Lord! Nothing is too difficult for Him! I seal my prayer with the precious blood of JESUS, our Lord and Savior. Amen!


Have a happy, peaceful, prosperous, victorious 2010!


Lotsa Love,
Coney :-)


I am just completely amazed and so grateful that God spoke through her!  What a blessing to hear those words!

I am also inspired to a whole new level.  Today, I resolve to take on every opportunity that God gives me when He has a message to other people.  What a privilege to be able to bring comfort to someone's soul!
