I got flooded with messages about a sweet girl named Leah singing and dancing to "Overcomer" in the hospital. After watching this video, you'll understand why. Would you join me in sending Prayers and Love for Leah? Here are some specific requests I saw in a post from her mom, Lindsay. "•Pray for complete healing in her body. •Pray for protection over her weakened immune system. •Pray for her family. We are tired. •Pray for her care team. They are weary with current events. •Pray for all of those that Leah touches with her spirit. For I believe it's God's plan to change the world one person at a time and Leah seems to be one of His aces right now." Leah: You are an overcomer in the truest sense of the word! Seeing the joy of the Lord on your sweet face inspired me so much. I'm praying for you, and believe that many of my friends on here will join me. Keep trusting Jesus, and fight on, precious one. ???????? "You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world." 1 John 4:4 NIV
A few months ago I was in a pretty deep depression. I isolated myself and closed out all of my loved ones, including God. Eventually, I felt so hopeless and far away from my heavenly Father that I could see no way out of the self-imposed pit that I climbed into. I just heard the new Casting Crowns single on K-LOVE Radio. This is the exact kind of song I wish I had heard during that period. If anyone feels now the way I felt then, be encouraged as you listen.
Have you heard about the 2 year old that was dragged by the gator into the water at Disney World in Orlando (which makes this the 3rd tragedy in Orlando this week!)? My heart is breaking for his parents. I don't have children, but I'm outraged by the people placing blame on them right now. This father & mother witnessed this, tried to pull him out, and will have to live with the visual of their child in the jaws of an alligator for the rest of their lives. Rather than pointing fingers, how about some compassion and prayers?
