April 1 to 30, 1997

Love one another as I have loved you

Patience makes for endurance

Ask for wisdom

He will supply all your needs

(April 30, 1997 6:22 AM CDT)

Two days ago I say a car
at 93rd and Dodge around 5 PM with
the license plate "2 COR 9",
so here is some of what
it says...

"Let me say this much:
He who sows sparingly
will reap sparingly,
he who sows bountifully
will reap bountifully."
2 Corinthians 9:6

Do you share your faith?
Do you give encouragement?
Do you give to the poor?
You must give in order to receive.

(April 29, 1997 6:24 AM CDT)

Jesus said,
"This much have I told you
while I was still with you;
the Paraclete, the Holy Spirit,
whom the Father will send in my name,
will instruct you in everything."
John 14:25-26
Ask the Holy Spirit
for wisdom.

(April 28, 1997 6:25 AM CDT)

"Everyone begotten of God
conquers the world,
and the power that
has conquered the world
is this faith of ours.
Who, then, is conqueror of the world?
The one who believes that
Jesus is the Son of God."
1 John 5:4-5
Sin should have no power over you,
if you are in Christ Jesus.
Call on the name of Jesus and
God will strengthen you in
time of temptation.
Be strong.
Trust in the Lord.

(April 27, 1997 6:33 AM CDT)

It is the Lord's Day.
Praise him this day.
Thank him.
Ask him.
He is faithful to give you
all that you need.

"I sought the Lord,
and he answered me
and delivered me
from all my fears.
Look to him that you
may be radiant with joy..."
Psalms 34:5-6

(Update at 7:07 AM)
I just looked at the Statistics for this site.
I can't believe all the different people that have come to visit. I pray for each of you to be blessed in some way by the Lord. Jesus is so wonderful. I hope that you come to know him. He is out of this world! I wish for you peace that only comes from God alone. If you are searching for something in your life, and can't find it. It is the Jesus that you are searching for. Your search can be over if you just let Jesus into your life. Life is not that complicated. You are made by God and you will never be at peace until you give your heart to Jesus.

If you have any questions,
just write to me (dan@spring2life.com) .
I'll try to help in any way that I can.

(April 26, 1997 6:34 AM CDT)

"The God of all grace,

Will you accept it?

(April 24, 1997 6:24 AM CDT)

"Keep your eyes open!"
Mark 8:15
Yes, take a look around you.
Evil is all over the place.
Call on the name of the Lord
and he will protect you.
Peace to you.
Do not fear.
Jesus is there for you.
Call on his name.
Jesus, protect us from evil today.

(April 23, 1997 6:20 AM CDT)

"God created man in his image;
in the divine image he created him;
male and female he created them."

You are a special creation.

Yesterday was a beautiful day of 72 F degrees
here in Omaha .
We thank the Lord for
a nice day.
Wow, the sunrise was awesome.
I saw it at 6:45 AM from 90 and Dodge.
It is interesting that by 7:30 AM
there was no trace of this sunrise.
If you missed it,
you missed it.
The Lord says to be prepared.

Jesus said,
"Anyone who hears my words
and puts them into practice

The snow is melting fast.
The sun is out

"There are still many other
things that Jesus did,
yet if they were written about in detail,
I doubt there would be room enough
in the entire world
to hold the books to record them."
John 21:25

Read the Bible.
It is God's word to you.
It is food for your soul.
You will starve without it.

Please pray for those who are unhappy
and without God in their lives.
I don't know how they can make it
without the Lord.

"You cannot give yourself to God and money."

Yes, we need money to buy things,

Money has its place.

Keep the Lord first in your life
and the other things will fall into place.
Trust the Lord Jesus
to supply all your needs.

Yesterday I could not login in the morning.
When something like that happens
I think of the verses:

"We know that God makes all things
work together for the good of those
who love God and are called
according to his decree."
Romans 8:28

No matter what happens in this life
God is in control.
We need to trust that in the end
all things will work out.
We live in an imperfect world
and yet God accomplishes his purpose.
Never give up.
There is always hope.
If you fail,
get back up.
Continue the work
that God has called you to do.

Yesterday I could not figure out a problem
on my computer at work,
so I prayed for help.
Within a few hours I had the answer.
We thank the Lord for answering our prayers.
I found the answer in the
Knowledge Base at Microsoft .
Maybe it can help you one day.

(April 1, 1997 6:07 AM CST)

"Let every man be quick to hear,
slow to speak,
slow to anger..."
