The Secret

One day, one friend asked another,

“How is it that you are always so happy?
You have so much energy,
and you never seem to get down.”


With her eyes smiling, she said,

“I know the Secret!”
“What secret is that?”
To which she replied,
“I’ll tell you all about it,
but you have to promise to
share the Secret with others.”


“The Secret is this:

I have learned there is little I can do
in my life that will make me truly happy
I must depend on God to make
me happy and to meet my needs.
When a need arises in my life,
I have to trust God to supply
according to HIS riches.
I have learned most of the time
I don’t need half of what I think I do.
He has never let me down.
Since I learned that ‘Secret’ , I am happy.”


The questioner’s first thought was,

“That’s too simple!”
But upon reflecting over her own life
she recalled how she thought a bigger house
would make her happy, but it didn’t!
She thought a better paying job
would make her happy, but it hadn’t.
When did she realize her greatest happiness?
Sitting on the floor with her grandchildren,
playing games, eating pizza or reading a story,
a simple gift from God.


Now you know it too!

We can’t depend on people to make us happy.
Only GOD in His infinite wisdom can do that.
Trust HIM!
And now I pass the Secret on to you!
So once you get it, what will you do?


YOU have to tell someone the Secret, too!

That GOD in His wisdom will take care of YOU!
But it’s not really a secret…
We just have to believe it and do it..
Really trust God!


Don’t Fight The Urge To Pray for Someone by Elaine Davenport (Sunday, November 11, 2007)

Be strengthened today and be encouraged! Please View this Site’s Number One Video: THE POWER OF PRAYER

DON’T FIGHT PRAYING FOR SOMEBODY ELSE! I’M WARNING YOU OF OBSTACLES THAT WILL GET IN YOUR WAY; EVEN DISTRACTIONS. MAKE UP YOUR MIND TO DO IT AND JUST SIT BACK AND WATCH THE INTERRUPTIONS…

This little article may prove itself to be very controversial; but the truth must be told!

READ THIS

I’ll discuss the controversy in a later paragraph, but first let me give you the facts.

SIDEBAR…

I went to church today and it was wonderful! I got more ammunition against the enemy. I love it! I had to go by to see a friend afterwards for a short visit. It’s a new friendship so I don’t know them really well. As we talked, my friend began to discuss a few health challenges. This wasn’t the first time that she had done this. I felt badly because the words that my friend were saying were not faith based words. At that time, I distinctly heard the Holy Spirit say: “Pray with her.” I didn’t say anything at the time, I just sat there trying to wait for the right time. As the subject changed; I felt as though I might have missed an opportunity. Soon, I was preparing to go and my friend was walking me to the door. On my way out, I turned and said: Let’s say a prayer together.”

YOU MUST BE WONDERING WHAT MY FRIEND’S REPLY WAS?

“I’m so glad, I need it!” was their response. We began to pray. During that prayer we pleaded the Blood of Jesus over her body and we spoke directly to the main health challenge that she had and told it to cease!
