Please pray!
Re-cap of tonight


This post will not be long. I need sleep and your prayers. I have to preach in the morning and in the last 24 hours I have caught a very nasty cold that makes it very hard to function. First there are the feelings of the cold but then when taking cold meds, you know how that makes a person feel. (Drowsy, out of it, etc.) I can't afford to have anything hindering me in the morning...I have such a word to deliver and I know the enemy has an assignment against it. Please, please push back with me in prayer. Have you ever taken Alka Seltzer cold medication? It's the most horrible stuff, absolutely disgusting to swallow but yet I am sitting here doing it because I am feeling so desperately bad. I had grandiose plans of what I was going to do in the few hours before the conference started and upon getting here, I immediately laid down and went to sleep for 3 hours til the service. All of you reading this in time ~ thanks for your prayers. I have a strong message to deliver on the role of women of God in the end times. A strategic message! Thank you for lifting me up.

Marsha spoke tonight and her message was, "The Wheel to Nowhere". Her hampsters were the inpiration for it. Great message. Ironically enough WITHOUT TALKING ABOUT IT AT ALL, her text for tonight is the same as mine for tomorrow. What a God thing.

Some points of her message:

  • We are called to be intentional women.

  • The right thing at the wrong time is still the wrong thing.

  • Some of us are convinced that God can't help us where we are at. The enemy tries to convince us.

  • The presence of God changes EVERYTHING.

  • Some of us just need a "honeymoon" with Jesus.

  • We believe there are certain issues in our lives that will keep us from being all God has called us to be.

  • Know -- whatever you are going through, it is not always going to be like this.

  • As soon as God speaks something into your life, the devil goes to work to try to denounce it and destroy it. Don't let him.

    Goodnight all...again, please keep me in prayer that this cold would not hinder what God wants to do and that I can speak boldly and clearly with no problems.

Well, I read this too late. You need Emergen-C packets. These are sold at Sams, Walmart and probablly publix, walgreens, etc. You should take about 3-4 today---it would have helped greatly last night, this morning, lunchtime and dinner. Its a booster supplement-ish. Get a big box from sams if Larry doesn't get some today. I started getting it and Im not supposed to get sick. I'd already had the headache,etc. It went away. So you need it with or without the medicine. You will definitely feel better. I know things went well this morning in spite of it. Praying for you, Sharon J
