Sabbath Blessings 8/20/2022

Happy Sabbath! Counting our blessings daily reminds us constantly of the goodness of our Heavenly Father. How many [small] gifts have you received this week? God is patiently waiting for us to recognize that His love is often displayed in the small blessings we overlook. Do not let the trials and busyness of life overshadow the gifts that God’s grace and mercies abundantly blessed you with this week. Prayer: Thank You, God, for our abundant life that comes from receiving streams of refreshment flowing with your love. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Did you Call?

Even with careful planning, we will face many unexpected adversities in our lives. Throughout the Bible, God has shown His magnificent power and brought deliverance to humanity. Created in His image, God’s heart is loving, readily extending saving grace and mercies, all-day long. Express your love and gratitude to our Heavenly Father by calling Him not only during troublesome times, but also in the peaceful times. Doesn’t God deserve our highest praise? Great is your faithfulness, Father God! Thank you, God for it all. Amen. © 2021 Sonya Johnson, Faithful Fishers Ministry

Time, Money, and Energy

God has blessed us with the resources of time, money, and energy. Utilize each with diligence. The goal of every believer is to hear, “Well done, good and faithful servant; you have been Faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your Lord.” Matthew 25:23

Receive Your Sabbath Blessings

God, we thank you for the blessing of the Sabbath day. We pray to receive peace as we extend agape Love to others. We pray for each individual that is in conflict regarding the 7th day Sabbath. We love you. Please accept our worship of humility and gratitude. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.

A friend shared this with me. I pray that you are blessed. Sonya Johnson

At the grocery store this morning, I heard a loud crash and something shattering. Being nosy, I walked towards the sound and saw some people whispering and looking back to the end of the next aisle. When I walked down that aisle, I saw an older lady had hit a shelf and many things had fallen to the ground and broke. She was kneeling on the floor embarrassed, frantically trying to clean up.


I felt so bad for her, and everyone was just standing there staring at her. So I went and knelt beside her and told her not to worry and started helping her pick up the broken pieces. After about a minute, the store manager came and knelt beside us and said, “Leave it, we will clean this up.” The lady, totally embarrassed said, “I need to pay for all this first.” The manager smiled, helped her to her feet and said, “No ma’am, we have insurance for this, you do not have to pay anything!”


If you have read this far, I would like for you to give me a minute. Wherever you are, close your eyes, and imagine God doing the same for you!


Collecting the pieces of your broken heart from all the blows life has thrown at you. The bill for your faults, sin and folly has already been paid through the precious blood of Christ. God will heal all your wounds. He wants to gently lift you to your feet again, clean up your mess, and pick up all the broken pieces. He wants to heal you! He wants to take care of your soul!


We can have that same insurance and it’s called GRACE! 💪💪
Somebody say, Amen. Melissa Johnson
