Gave freely

Over and over today in reading Exodus the people were willing to give. To give what they had whether it was physical or gifts they were cheerful givers to the LORD! Wow!

I loved it! Gave freely to the Lord! Willingly, willingly, prepared, gave them freely to the LORD! Both men and women came, all whose hearts were willing. They brought! But the people continued to bring additional gifts each morning... The people have given more than enough. Moses had to command don't bring anymore we have more than enough!

How long has it been that we have brought more than enough? If all of us together brought what we had whether it is physical or a gift of talent, would it be enough for those hurting in the world? I think so at least according to God's Word if we each bring a sacred offering or those that are gifted craftsman the project could be completed! Wow, what a beautiful thought and something to strive towards the goal of providing what is needed!

Freely giving and willing - huge words that sometimes we find hard to follow through with at times. Cheerful givers is what we are each called to be and just like we are told in Luke...she did what she could...Each of our could's look a little different, but we are all able to something! So today with a willing spirit and cheerful heart what will you do? What will I do that will make the world a better place?

Sweet blessings,

Prayer Special - Continued prayers for the people of Egypt! Pray for the right leaders and peace to prevail...Also, today's prayer concern from the OPeration World book is Algeria. I don't think it is a coincidence that it falls today February 12, 2011, that we are praying for Algeria when I turn on the television this morning and they are in demonstrating in Algeria against the government. Today we are to pray for Algeria and I believe that it must be very important for this country to be in the news today and it also falling on the day of prayer for this country in the Operation World that was printed in 2010 and it fell today for these prayers!!!!
