and they have spoken...


At first when the idea crossed my mind about asking people to write about their blessings, I was afraid that no one would heed the call. I was hesitant to press publish. But today when I saw all your responses I was filled with so much joy.

Shelly in This Eclectic Life has a beautiful post about her blesssings. It's called Work-It's Not My "Ball and Chain". She writes about her "gift of story". Her article is about how, by some divine intervention, she found a job that gives her great joy. Incidentally, the funny folktale she told was called "God Will Provide". She says "I keep telling stories, because this is what I was meant to do." What a blessing to discover your gift, make good use of it and touch other people's lives.

Pieter in Only God keeps me going wrote God in His Wisdom Will Take Care of You. The article talks about the secret of true happiness. He writes, "I have learned there is little I can do in my life that will make me truly happy. I must depend on God to make me happy and to meet my needs."

Thank you Shelly and Pieter for sharing. You are so blessed in ways you may never even know.


To those who promised to write their posts, I am looking forward to your entries so I can feature it here.

God bless you all!

hi surjit, i agree the happiness in itself is a blessing from God. realizing and understanding how it works will work wonders in our lives. thank you so much.

If the answers to prayer are merely what God wills all along, then why pray?

hi dream catcher - when things in my life are not going my way, i sometimes ask God why? why is my life not going the way i wanted it to be. why do i get hurt, why do people trample on my feelings. why why why? sometimes i do not understand how it works. but then I realize that He knows what's good for us.

Why pray? it is through prayer that we speak to Him. But prayer is not merely asking for things and favors. It is a dialogue. If you have time, you may read a post I wrote about prayer. Hope this helps. http://mumshavelivestoo.blogspot.com/2007/04/prayer.html

Very nice Sophia, i agree with you. We need to pray, no need to understand how it work. What are you feel once finished pray?

Peace be unto you..(Is this the answer to my question ??)

Hello Sophia,

I will be posting my share of blessings at my blog, http://www.mystillwaters.com. But right now it only has one post since I have just started my blog. I'm not a tech-savvy person so please bear with my humble blog. I'm slowly learning how to blog at wordpress.

Sophiagurl said...

Dream catcher said...

through prayer we speak to him..they say if he doesn't listen he is making us wait..or may b we are not giving are best enough...
when the soul itself is wrecking then y he doesn't help..

tell me one thing from a mind of a suicidal person whose all hopes have eluded him..how u justify it...y then after so many prayers that person going to take big step..God let it happen...

p.s. didi this template is bit hazy..trouble reading :(

Sophiagurl said...

i'm sorry about the template, i don't know how i can change the font color...do you know how?=)

to answer your question why does God let it happen...you must remember my friend that there is that thing called "free will". whatever "we" allow to happen in our lives is our responsibility. God is there to guide us to show us choices...the right path. it our "will" so to speak that dictates where we choose to go. the left or the right, the right path or the wrong one. i hope that helped.

Dream Catcher said...

perhaps u r right...
but the whats the purpose of living...pain he gives...happiness he gives..life he gives n death he gives..
answers are many ..n choices are also his....but seems we only have to find that..

love u sis :) u r very good..i m really happy i met u..:)

In Blogger from your Dashboard click on Settings, then click on Templates, then Fonts and Colours and there is a selection of changes that you can make.
Hope that is of some help to you.
God Bless you

Hummie said...

Of course you may highlight the posts on my Look to the Lord blog. Please remember, though, that I did not write but a few of them.

I should probably read these posts now as they may help me. We just got some scary news at the doctor and I am feeling stressed (as on my personal blog).

Thank you for sharing God on the internet.

Sophiagurl said...

hi hummie, thanks for visiting will take note of that. I hope all goes well with the doctor. I'll be praying for you.
