Need Some Encouraging?

Lately, I've been doing a lot of work and school, and wherever else I need to go:) My radio has many different music stations with different genres programed in...mostly country, classic rock, and Christian.
There are days when I need a little pick me up. I try to do a little bit of bible study everyday, but that doesn't always happen. So, when I'm in my car I will turn it to KLove Radio Station. It always lifts my spirits. I listen to the words the Christian artists sing and feel the Spirit at work. I can feel how much God loves me and my family....and everyone. I just wish some people knew how much God loves them and wants a relationship with them.
There are other positive things about KLove. They have people praying everyday. On their website there is a place to sign up for prayer request. I love when I hear them pray on the radio...I just sit and wonder how many of my brothers and sisters in Christ are bowing their head at that same moment, praying with them....lifting people up in their prayers. AMAZING!! They have a phone line where people can call in and share touching stories about how Christ has done His awesome work in their lives:) It always brightens my day! There are many other awesome things they do for the Lord....I encourage you to check out their website...I guarantee you will be encouraged too:)
There's no such thing as perfect people~There's no such thing as a perfect life~So come as you are, broken and scarred~Lift up your heart~And be amazed~And be changed~By a PERFECT GOD!!!

~There are many people that blog, that knew of Hope. I met her a few months ago. She was the sweetest and strongest 14 year old girl I'd ever met. She had such a zest for life and didn't let her illness define her. Many of us got to know her through her Cancer Diary. Her mom eventually had to post for her because she was too weak, and we got to know her mom as well. We realized where Hope had gotten her strength. Her mom read her our thoughts daily. She said they brought her peace. She was so strong. You could see God's love shine through them both.
I miss her already...her bubbly, courageous, beautiful attitude for life. She and her mom knew she was in God's hands. Although, we will miss her....let's be thankful that our Dear Hope is in no more pain. She is with our Perfect, All-Healing Father. We will meet her again one day, when we are with our Amazing Father in Heaven.
Please continue to pray for Hope's family....that they may find the peace that only the Lord can give.
~~Jesus said, "Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light." Matthew 11:28-30
~~The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. Psalm 34:18
