Cardboard Testimony

My friend, Sam, sent this video to me and I found it to be powerful, uplifting, Spirit-led, and full of hope! As you watch this 8-minute clip, formulate your own cardboard testimony and share it with us. I'll even share mine. Just look at the comments.

Peace, Love, and Chocolate

Take 6 recorded a song many years ago, one of their biggest hits, in which the chorus says: "If we ever needed the Lord before, we sure do need Him now." That line is on repeat in my head as I write this. Stop whatever it is you're doing and pray right now. A child has gone Home early. Her family needs your prayers for comfort, peace, wisdom, and understanding in this tragic time. Specifically, pray for her oldest brother, who accidentally was the reason for her meeting Jesus at such a young age. I can't imagine the thoughts, feelings, emotions coursing through him and his family. Pray as though your life depended upon it. It does, and the family's does, too. God wants to hear from you. There is no better time than right now.
