Mama's Prayer Group
Mama has a prayer group that meets each Thursday at 10AM at the prayer cottage here on the campgrounds. The ladies bring their prayer requests and then for the next hour thy all join in prayer. Yesterday a lady mentioned the following prayer request. A young married man needs a heart and kidney transplant, has been in the hospital for 6 months waiting. His 8 year old son looked at his father the other day and asked this question: "Daddy, does this mean somebody has to die to give you their heart?! I don't want someone else to have to die!"
What do you say to a child who is trying to sort through life - who wants his dad to live? What do we say to a God who gave His Son to die on a cross - for our sins? I am overwhelmed at God's love for me that He would do that.
The boy in the picture is cleaning up the cake batter bowl. He obviously does not want to miss any. In fact he is getting as close to that bowl and batter as he can. He is not holding back - God did not hold back - He gave his only begotten Son - for you. He wants all of you so you can have life - Are you holding back anything - let His love get in you and all over you - right now!
