The month of October is moving so fast. It feels like it has 30 days instead of 31. My next column will be in November already. Tuesday is the last day of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and some people and churches still have not acknowledged it, and it makes me wonder.
I questioned some churches. Some said “yes,” and some said “no.” People have been healed, cancer free, and still no testimony, and I wonder. I have many wonders; I’ll share later in my column. However, God is helping me through scriptures.
He said He will never leave me. He has really been showing himself to me lately, especially this month. I wonder if it is because I lost my mother in October some years ago, and God is reminding me of her faithful godly spirit shining upon me. When I wonder about things I am reminded of scriptures and thank God for my mother teaching me and my siblings scriptures at a young age, and I also thank God for my oldest son, Bernard, sending me 100 best scriptures to inspire, cherish and share, which have been a great asset and a blessing in my everyday walk with God.
I am very grateful for scriptures of the Bible, especially these two: Proverbs 3:5 and Romans 8:28, my favorite. They have helped me tremendously when I begin to wonder about things I have no control over. I wonder why there is so much hate, jealousy and sickness in the world and among Christians, family and friends. Why are there so many different denominations? Why do Blacks and whites separate their churches? There is only one God, and He is a Jew (smile).
I had to put that in for a little laugh, but seriously, I wonder about praise and worship when God has been so good. Not enough praise and testimonies. Not enough “thank you” after every prayer. When we pray we need to trust God enough for the answer is already done to say “thank you” or to see your loved ones, neighbors and church family being blessed to say “Thank you, God” for their blessings, too.
Worship and weeping are the key to answered prayers. When we get to church on Sundays we should prepare to worship. We may not all be people prone to weeping, but we should be people prone to worshipping. The month of October has been a worship and weeping spirit I have had. Thanking God and obeying Him.
Happy birthday to the greatest journalist there is, Christa Jennings. “Coosa County News” readers love you, and the writers.

“Look out for the little gods. They have a way of growing, and no matter how small, they can separate us from the true and living God.”
“God will require of nations and individuals a final accounting of what we did with what He gave us.”
“Even little sin can keep us from doing big things.”
“Until there is nothing to be done there is always something that can be done.” – Harry Dunn
