Helping Others Please God



Did Jesus give us advice on helping others? I believe He did.

William James said, "Whenever you're in conflict with someone, there is one factor that can make the difference between damaging your relationship and deepening it. That factor is attitude."

Hebrews 13:16 "But to do good and to communicate forget not: for with such sacrifices God is well pleased." (KJV) In other words, do good to others, and don't forget to share with others in need. This pleases God.

With the cornona virus prevalent around the world, now would be a great time to help others in need. The one thing I have learned is I can't outgive God. He always blesses me when I am helping others. One of the greatest blessings is the feeling you get when you have done something for someone else.

Susan Reichert was the co-publisher and the Editor-in-Chief of Southern Writers Magazine, a national magazine for authors and readers and is now retired. The magazine is also retired. But she continues promoting authors and their books on Suite T, and The Gallery of Stars.

Reichert discovered one of her life's purposes when she began to write. "First, it was short stories as a child." Some Saturday afternoons you could find Susan, her sister and friends acting out the stories. Her writing took a back seat until she was in her twenties where she began writing a novel, set in Jamaica. "Unfortunately, over the years, it became lost."

She is a big proponent of writing your feelings, life thoughts, prayers, and ideas in journals. Something she has done for forty years.

Besides facilitating a writing group since 2010 she writes every day. In April 2015, her book, Storms in Life, released.  Her second book will be released this summer, God’s Prayer Power.
She lives in Tennessee with her husband. They have four grown daughters who have families of their own.

Looking For Solutions To Help Our Families and Communities

     Smith Wigglesworth was a preacher and teacher. I read an interesting fact on him. He did not learn to read until after he married his wife Polly. She taught him to read the Bible. He often stated, “It was the only book he ever read”. He did not permit newspapers in his home, preferring the Bible to be their only reading material.      I dare say that is a rarity today. When I read this, I wondered how many homes today have Bibles. If they have one, how many families read the book collectively as a family and as an individual? Obviously, I don’t have the statistics on that.      However, that got me to thinking, what if! What if families began reading the bible together? What changes would come about in their homes, their lives, and their work? Of course, the changes would spill over in how we see and interact with our neighbors and treat people in our communities. Looking around at the things happening in all our communities such as ––the violence, hatred, rage, anger––

Your Strength Comes From Him

"And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me." 2Corinthians 12:9 There are times we feel overwhelmed in our day to day lives. We notice our strength is low both physically, mentally, and spiritually. During these times, we have two choices. We can sit down and feel sorry for ourselves or we can grab our Bibles and start reading God's words. Psalm 73:26 says, "My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever." Nehemiah 8:10 says, "Do not grieve, for the joy of the Lord is your strength." You can find numerous scriptures on God giving us strength in our lives. By reading His word and reminding ourselves that we can do all things through Him that strengthens us, it will build us up and we won't continue feeling bad because His strength is sufficient. Ble

Were You In The Locked Room?

  Jesus said, "Peace be unto you." Imagine you were with the disciples in the Upper Room; the doors are locked. Everyone is afraid of the Jewish leaders coming after them. Not only were they fearful, for their lives, but they lost their rock, Jesus. The man they leaned on, and depended on. He was with them for over 3 years, teaching them. Their friend. They could always count on Him. They ate with Him, played, slept, and prayed with Him. Now He was gone. Their whole world had been turned upside down. They didn't know what to do. They were in the upper room, the last place they had been with Jesus. What is it like for you sitting there with the disciples? Then suddenly, a man appeared in the room. They aren't sure who He is and they are wondering how he got in the locked room. The man says, "Peace be unto you." When he said this, he held out His hands and shewed them His side. It was Jesus. Can you imagine how thrilled the disciples were to see Him. Their jo
