Printable version of Whitney’s November 2011 Prayer Letter
Very rarely do I say “Whatever you are doing – stop now and watch this video!” In fact, I have never said those words. I post with the intent of people reading and being encouraged by the Lord and or being inspired by my journey with Christ. I don’t do this so I can talk about myself – I do it to share the love I feel from God! I pray everyone will one day feel His love and plan for our lives! So back to the point… STOP WHAT YOU ARE DOING AND WATCH THIS VIDEO!! And maybe have a box of tissues handy! I cried and watched this over and over again!
If you read my blog then you have heard this song before. It is called ‘Blessed Redeemer’ by Casting Crowns. I used the song also for the Summit Baptism video blog.
One of my favorite things about Facebook is the opportunity it allows us to share and connect with all sorts of people in a positive way. I get lots of questions on Facebook from people about my beliefs. I always enjoy opening a message from a mom who wants her kids to know Christ but doesn’t know how to talk to them about it. Or parents who don’t know how to answer the questions their kids ask them about God. Or someone who wants to read the Bible but has no clue where to start. A lot of messages I get start by saying “This may sound like a dumb question…” but the truth is there are no dumb questions. I love all these questions because the answer leads people to God!! So please keep sending me messages!!
The question I get the most is the question about where to start reading in the Bible. My suggestion is to start in the New Testament with Mark, John and Luke. In those books you get clear descriptions of Jesus and how He lived, died and rose again.
