Fax from God






To: YOU
Date: TODAY
From: GOD
Subject: YOURSELF
Reference: LIFE

This is God. Today I will be handling All of your problems for you. I do Not need your help. So, have a nice day.
I love you.


P.S. And, remember...
If life happens to deliver a situation to you that you cannot handle, do Not attempt to resolve it yourself! Kindly put it in the SFGTD (something for God to do) box. I will get to it in MY TIME. All situations will be resolved, but in My time, not yours.


Once the matter is placed into the box, do not hold onto it by worrying about it. Instead, focus on all the wonderful things that are present in your life now.

If you find yourself stuck in traffic, don't despair. There are people in this world for whom driving is an unheard of privilege.

Should you have a bad day at work; think of the man who has been out of work for years.

Should you despair over a relationship gone bad; think of the person who has never known what it's like to love and be loved in return.

Should you grieve the passing of another weekend; think of the woman in dire straits, working twelve hours a day, seven days a week to feed her children.

Should your car break down, leaving you miles away from assistance; think of the paraplegic who would love the opportunity to take that walk.

Should you notice a new gray hair in the mirror; think of the cancer patient in chemo who wishes she had hair to examine.

Should you find yourself at a loss and pondering what is life all about, asking what is my purpose?


Be thankful. There are those who didn't live long enough to get the opportunity.

Should you find yourself the victim of other people's bitterness, ignorance, smallness or insecurities; remember, things could be worse. You could be one of them!

Should you decide to share this with a friend; Thank you. You may have touched their life in ways you will never know!
Now, you have a nice day.



God

This is beautiful and so true - he's always there, isn't he - just waiting for us to ask him to carry the burden! Thanks for reminding me, Joan - you are a good friend and a smart lady! Take care. Kellan

Joan,
loved this message from God... you touched some very tender places for me... I have such a tendency to help God with my problems...
I tell him my need... then I pick it back up and worry and fret over it...
I needed this reminder to leave God along and let him do things in HIS TIME
Blessings,
Mimi

What a wonderful message to start the day. Very appropriate too as I return to work tomorrow where there can be quite a bit of "drama" with some co-workers.

Thanks for posting this, Joan! I stopped by to tell you I have monovision contacts now as well (but mostly for distance!). Your post was helpful to me on so many levels today, and I think I will let God handle what he does so well.

I loved that! A great way to start my day. Every one of those is so true, and really made me think. Love you!

PS: Lunch and Starbucks was so fun the other day... we really need to do that more often!

Thank you for this fax from God.
It is true words. Often we want the answers just at the moment.
But God want us to wait.I have to learn that lesson, I am so impatient.
We all need to repeate this every day and notice it to ourselves.
