The lord just gave me a vision on the things I have. I can’t thank the Lord enough during these hard times for what I have. Food in my stomach, water to drink, a bed to sleep in, and friends and family that love me , and unemployment benefits to sustain me. Oh, my God, thank you so much for these things and the human companionship  and support of friends and family. Years ago, I really wasn’t grateful for what I had, I just took things for granted. As I have gotten older ( and hopefully wiser), I realize during these hard times how all of the above is a blessing from God.

Even though I was laid off after ten years, all my needs have been met. Even during the hard times within the hard times all my needs and realities have been provided for. I am such a lucky guy, thanks to the higher power above. I really can’t ask for more. Thank you Lord, Oh my gosh, what a beautiful God you are.

I want everybody to realize the same thing within themselves. When you really think about it, you and your situation could be A LOT WORSE. Thank the Lord for what you have and realize that He is in control. All of you are such lucky beings as well, to have a loving God on your side. Hallelujah, Praise the Lord.

We all seem to get inside ourselves, and only think of the way we want to be, and not of the way things are. When we are happy, we really don’t praise the Lord as we should. When we are down, we can’t ask the Lord enough on what we need. As believers, the Lord will provide for all our needs. The family, the friendships, the money, and our health. Don’t take these gifts for granted. They are provided for us purposely. And continue to spread the word, so others can feel the same way.

Continue to think positive, and treat yourself and others with respect. Keep your word to the Lord, yourself and others, It’s all we have, and they are very powerful when used in the right context and manner. May the Lord continue to bless all of you in the way you treat yourself and others. Thank all of you for spreading the word of Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and continue the fight for the good word and living. Keep your faith in the Lord. In Jesus Name, Amen

The anger of the Lord hath divided them; he will no more regard them: they respected not the persons of the priests, they favoured not the elders. Lamentations 4:16
