I am so thankful for all of the friends that surrounded me this year after the loss of my beloved Janis on 12-12-14. It is not a brief Thanksgiving that I give. Some gave me housing for weeks. Many a meal was provided and the comfort of friends to be with in the evening. I had a place to mourn in private, in a bedroom of my own. All gave me prayer and moral support. My church acquaintances still ask me, “How are you doing?”
The group of exxxxxceptional young people from Lee University that I toured Israel with still include me in their lives through Facebook. After I posted a comment, one recently blessed me deeply by saying, “I miss you Mr. Mike.” A pair of them got engaged. As a marriage counselor I suggested a book “The Five Love Languages.” My suggestion was graciously received. I am so grateful Lord. Bless them all richly please. I know You will.
My 94 year old mom keeps asking if I have a girlfriend yet. She loved Janis so much. She says she loves me more than I will ever know. I tell her, “Just keep telling me Mom, just keep telling me.” I tell her she is the only gal in my life now.
The Lord has blessed my finances, and my health. I walk 4.25 miles a night, three nights a week minimum. I have a home now in Deland. I have a blog with 75 posts over the past year. I am being read in 29 countries around the world. I have a message and a calling about rescuing at least some of the believers that will be lost in the Apostasy. I have a book about it available in most electronic book stores like Amazon. “Exit Strategy, we initiate the return of Christ.” $2.99.
I have been invited to Thanksgiving dinner, by several households, thank You Lord. I have been invited to a special Christmas with longtime friends and their family. Not actually related just loved abundantly, they have always known me as “Uncle Mike.”
My heavenly Father has told me even this morning that He loves me and that I am His. I have wept, no I cried over such a wonderful blessing. I get to sing in the church Christmas choir on the 13th of December at the Sanctuary Church of God. (You are invited of course. There is something [God] happening there.)
Every morning in the last month and a half, I have met with the Holy Spirit under my Tallit as He has led me to obscure persons in the Word, guiding me to answers about today’s situations, making comparisons, each time confirming that my experience with Him is real. It is amazing, troubling sometimes, and or instructive to me personally at times. Never-the-less, you know when you know it is Him and it is real. I post about some of these things frequently.
Dear Lord, I thank You in advance as You (please) do for others what you have done for me, especially Lord for those who have lost a spouse or are alone in general. You are my companion Lord, more so now than ever before. Please anoint my words as You give me inspiration, for Your purposes Lord.
Thank You Lord, thank you now and forever.
Thanks to you all, near and far for your loving friendship, kindness and tender concerns. Happy Thanksgiving!
As I always say, and as many of you are, please … forward this post or others. to a friend, your Pastor, or a missionary in another country, or in this one for that matter. Maybe they will identify with the revival message in these posts. Revival for survival.
