A PRAYER ANSWERED
"I'm hungry, mama." The boy's eyes were hollowed.
"I'm sorry, sweetheart. The cupboard is bare."
"Can we pray, mama?"
"Yes, sweet child. Let's."
They petitioned the Lord with tears.
"Excuse me, Ma'am, but would you care for this pizza? God told me to deliver it."
Jewish Joanne, unbiased reporter, covers a Christian women's conference. The attendees' peace and joy moves her to read the Bible through - in three weeks. She has many questions, so she gets churched and mentored.
After several months, Joanne rereads "by His wounds we are healed."
Jewish Joanne is healed.
RELIEF FOR THE WEARY
"I'm so tired, Harold."
Harold rubs Agnes' back. "I know. It's time to stop dwelling. Just let it go."
"Let it go?"
"I have. It's your turn now."
Agnes kneels. "Lord, I'm through with the guilt. Forgive me for my unfaithfulness to Harold. In Your name. Amen."
"I'm afraid, Pa."
"I'm right here, John. You can do it."
"What if I can't?"
"But what if I can't?"
Pa smiled. "I'll be here to catch you."
John eases onto his bicycle, sans training wheels.
John smiles. Pa is by his side. John's feet touch the pedals.
THE SCRUNCHY CHALLENGE
"Write a complete story in 50 words or less," Deb challenges.
"You're kidding, right? I have enough trouble with 750."
"It will be a good stretch, or scrunch, for you," Deb counters.
God's inspiration comes upon me.
Stories flow like water.
I am scrunched.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
