I received an email from my sister. You may have seen it before something about all the Susie’s in your life? Well I thought it was a cute way of illustrating a point. Give it a read. It’s sweet but the underlying message is significant and shows how you can be an instrument of peace and blessings for others. Have a blessed day!

With open eyes you will always see opportunities to help others. ūüôā

Come with me to a third grade classroom….. There is a nine-year-old kid sitting at his desk and all of¬†a sudden, there is¬†a ¬†puddle between his feet and the front of his pants are wet. He thinks his heart is going to stop because he cannot¬†possibly imagine how this has happened.. It’s¬†never happened before, and he knows that when the boys find out he will never hear the end of¬†it. When the girls find out, they’ll never speak¬†to him again as long as he lives.

The boy believes his heart is going to stop; he puts his¬†head down and prays this prayer, ‘Dear God, this¬†is an emergency! I need help now! Five minutes¬†from now I’m dead¬†meat.’

He looks up from his prayer and here comes the teacher with a look in her eyes that says he has been discovered.

As the teacher is walking toward him, a class mate¬†named Susie is carrying a goldfish bowl that is¬†filled with water. Susie trips in front of the¬†teacher and inexplicably dumps the bowl of water¬†in the boy’s¬†lap.

The boy pretends to be angry, but all the while is¬†saying to himself, ‘Thank you, Lord! Thank you, Lord!’

Now all of a¬†sudden, instead of being the object of ridicule, the boy is the object of sympathy. The teacher¬†rushes him downstairs and gives him gym shorts¬†to put on while his pants dry out….. All the other¬†children are on their hands and knees cleaning¬†up around his desk. The sympathy is wonderful.¬†But as life would have it, the ridicule that¬†should have been his has been transferred to¬†someone else –¬†Susie.
 
She tries to help, but they tell her to get out. You’ve done enough, you klutz!’

Finally, at¬†the end of the day, as they are waiting for the bus, the boy walks over to Susie and whispers,¬†‘You did that on purpose, didn’t you?’ Susie whispers back, ‘I wet my pants once¬†too.’

May God help us see the opportunities that are always around us to do good..

Remember…..Just going to¬†church doesn’t make you a Christian any more¬†than standing in your garage makes you a car. Each and
everyone one of us is going through tough times right now, but God is getting ready to bless you in a way that only He can. Keep the
faith.

This prayer¬†is powerful, and prayer is one of the best gifts we receive. There is no cost but a lot of¬†rewards. Let’s continue to pray for one another.
 The Prayer:
Father, I ask You to bless my friends, relatives and those that I care deeply for, who are reading this right now. Show them a new revelation of Your love and power. Holy Spirit, I ask You to minister to their spirit at this very moment. Where there is pain, give them Your peace and mercy.. Where there is self-doubt, release a renewed confidence through Your grace. Where  there is need, I ask you to fulfill their needs. Bless their homes, families, finances, their goings and their comings.
 Amen.
