        I was reading in Acts 3 1-8 where Peter and John had gone to the temple together at the time of prayer,  and,  seeing a man lame from birth Peter felt compelled to heal him .  Verse Six [6] states   Then Peter said ,  ” Silver and gold I have none ; but such that I have give I thee : in the name of JESUS CHRIST of Nazareth rise up and walk .” Glory to GOD!!!

    When asked about  ” Faith Healing ” I always respond in the same manner . YES!!! I  myself  have been healed from a sickness from which there was no known cure . That was in 1978 and today not only do I feel as though I could overcome the world ;   I have!!!  Thank you JESUS!!!

       JESUS asked us to pray for the sick , we should pray for the sick!!!  Whenever I have an opportunity to allow the Holy Spirit of GOD to work through me , I do. I personally do not want anyone in my immediate family of Blood and friends to feel ill. GOD has made provision for that illness.

   When JESUS went to the Cross HE took our sickness with HIM!!! The whipping in which He endured was to assure us that by the stripes across HIS back we have been healed!!! There is no way in which I could ever repay HIM for what HE has done for me except to say ” I LOVE You LORD !!!”   Mercy!!!

           Allow  GOD to work through you and heal someone today!!! Witness!!!

   I Love you !!!!!!! Mark

Happy Mother's Day: Sometimes...

   I was reading in Mark 7 24-30 where Jesus had entered a house and did not want anyone to know that HE was there. However , a woman whose daughter had an unclean spirit heard about HIM and immediately came to HIM and bowed down at HIS feet . Now , the mother was a Gentile and Jesus told her that she need not beg , that in fact , HE wanted to feed HIS children first. HE told the mother that it was not fair to take the children’s food and give it to the dogs. She begged even more saying that even dogs ate the crumbs from a childs food under the table. Even though she was not a Jew Jesus healed her daughter!!!

   Evidence abounds!!! Evidence of inclusion , Evidence of Faith-Healing , all sorts of Evidence , however , I want to write of the Evidence of Love!!! In this case , the Love of a mother.

   Everytime that I read this passage my heart aches for a mother who would go against all tradition to get help for her sick daughter. It must have been pretty sad to have been refered to as a dog , however , that was her daughter!!! Her Hope had brought about a Faith that could move mountains !!! I can only imagine that she received Hope when she first heard about Jesus!!! Her actions speak to us about Love. The Love of a mother!!!

   As Mother’s Day approaches I wish that everyone who reads this , whether or not you are a mom , fully understands what it must be like to give birth : first to a child , and then to Hope.  As I ride the buses around Kissimmee I am overwhelmed as I witness mom after mom in a daily struggle to do the next right thing for their  children.

   If you are a mom who has a sick child please go to Jesus!!!!!!! If your child is not sick still go to Jesus!!!!!!! HE does not have the answer ; HE IS THE ANSWER!!!!!!!

   I wonder sometimes how often my mom prayed for me. I will never know, however , I do know that I Love my mom!!!

    This Mother’s Day please be sure to tell your mom how thankful you are for all that she has done for you and how much you Love her. If she is “sleeping” and no longer with us, please tell GOD . HE can get the message to her!!!!!!! I ask you to rebuke any barriers of communication and say ” Mom , I Love you”!!!

   HAPPY MOTHER”S DAY !!!!!!!   I Love you!!!!!!! Mark
