"IF"


This morning my Pastor gave a good word from 2Chron 7:14 "If my people who are called by my name will humble themselves, pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land" The problem of our country is not government, it is the people of God, if we would pray as much as we talked, if we would believe as much as we disbelieved, if we would obey as much as we disobeyed, If we would be the light of the world the world would not be so dark. There was a survey not long ago about the safest cities in America, had nothing to do with economics, they found that the cities that were the safest, had the largest PRAYING churches!! That sure encourages me to continue the good fight of my faith, and to continue to pray, I hope it does you too.

beautiful card! this was actually one of "my" verses during a college semester over 15 years ago. meaning that for an entire semester of college i meditated on that one verse. we have to remember that IF we are HIS people... we must HUMBLE ourselves, PRAY, and SEEK HIS FACE, TURN from our wicked ways and THEN HE will hear and HEAL our land. there's a lot of responsiblity on our part still, but HIS promise is VERY real... and He will never let us down! :-)

Beautiful card Becky! That verse certainly is a beautiful one in Scripture...I remember breaking it down in Bible College and it is so foundational to everything.

Nice design on your card and love the soft colors. :o)
