WHAT A WORLD!!!
A 30 year-old son decided to get his old father admitted into an old peoples home as desired by his wife. He brought the father in a car to an old peoples home run by a Catholic priest.
Then appeared this elderly priest, who came out to have a long chat with the old man.
The son wondered and asked the priest whether he knew his father before, since they were talking as though they knew each other.
The priest replied, yes, and continued, “He came here 30 years back and took with him a very sick orphan boy whom everyone else had rejected for adoption.
This man gave that boy a home and saved his life. He told us this little boy deserves better and I’ll dedicate my life to make him the wealthiest young man when he turns 25”.
The priest continued, “I don’t know how long you have known him but I can tell you he is a good man and I am glad to inform you that you were the sick boy”.
The boy, on hearing this, fell on his knees and begged the old man for forgiveness.
The old man looked at him with a smile and said, “Son, I have forgiven you. You threw me out of my own home because of your wife.
Take the house, but know that I have removed you from my documents as the sole heir of my empire.
I have willed all my properties to this orphanage where I now belong.”
At the height of your success don’t forget where you are coming from, if not you will miss your destination and lose your Crown.
I pray we will not forget those who helped us to get to the top.

When we come together and unite as one, it exhibits the glory of God. Unity in love, of a group of people, causes them to stand strong, encourage one another, makes the enemy retreat in defeat and nothing is impossible to do.
A kingdom divided by civil war will collapse. Similarly, a family splintered by feuding will fall apart. And if Satan is divided and fights against himself, how can he stand? He would never survive. (Mark 3:24-26 NLT)

“They came to Jericho. As he went out from Jericho, with his disciples and a great multitude, the son of Timaeus, Bartimaeus, a blind beggar, was sitting by the road.
“When he heard that it was Jesus the Nazarene, he began to cry out, and say, “Jesus, you son of David, have mercy on me!””
“Many rebuked him, that he should be quiet, but he cried out much more, “You son of David, have mercy on me!””
“Jesus stood still, and said, “Call him.” They called the blind man, saying to him, “Cheer up! Get up. He is calling you!””
“He, casting away his cloak, sprang up, and came to Jesus.”
When the blind Bartimaeus heard that Jesus was passing he said, Jesus son of David, have mercy on me and the people tried to stop him from receiving his miracle but he shouted the more.
Those that tried to stop him were those that called him to Jesus.
During your trying time stay in the fight because you don’t know your time of visitation. No matter what people are saying to you don’t quit.
Prayer: Father, give us the grace to stay committed to You during our trying period in the name of Jesus Christ . Let those that have written me off be those that will announce my breakthrough in the name of Jesus Christ.
