Happy Valentine’s Day! It’s always a real joy to share God’s love with you. The U.S.A., U.K., Canada, Australia, and Brazil were the top five countries from where viewers visited the site last month. We’re humbled by all the praise reports from around the world. The Psalmist David proclaimed,
“That I may publish with the voice of thanksgiving, and tell of all thy wondrous works.” 1

It amazes me to hear through a couple of letters how the Lord has softened Aaron’s heart from his hardened past. He writes,
Happy Resurrection Day! The word blessed in the Greek means “Oh how happy!” As Christians, our happiness comes from the blessing of God, not this world. Though our circumstances may be bleak, happiness is internal, exuding from the Spirit through faith in the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. The Psalmist David wrote,
“Blessed are those whose lawless deeds are forgiven, and whose sins are covered; blessed is the man to whom the Lord shall not impute sin.” 1

What a blessing to hear from Ryan, who saw my interview on the 700 Club from years ago. He wrote,
Happy Father’s Day! My heart and prayers go out to all the fathers who feel they are failures when it comes to parenthood. As you experience God’s love for you, He’ll increase your love towards your children, making it unconditional like His for us.
“And I am praying that you will put into action the generosity that comes from your faith as you understand and experience all the good things we have in Christ.” 1

I’m blessed daily at mail call with praise reports causing jubilation, such as Ian, who wrote:
Harvest Blessings! Listen, your help is needed in the harvest field. I pray for your boldness to share this site with your friends and family. For there to be a harvest, a seed must be planted in the hearts of your loved ones, plus it needs watering to bring forth fruit.
“The harvest is great, but the workers are few. 38 So pray to the Lord who is in charge of the harvest; ask him to send more workers into his fields.” 1

Happy Birthday Jesus! My heartfelt prayers go out to all those who won’t be experiencing a Merry Christmas this year because of fires, hurricanes, floods, shootings and other turmoil.
“So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most.” 1
