Celebrate with Jesus through celebration and trial

Celebrate with Jesus through celebration and trial

By Jessica Dixon

 We are given trials and celebrations throughout our lives.

Not each moment is a trial and not each moment is a celebration and not all trials are horrible and not all celebrations are joyous.

We may choose to walk through life thinking that each and every moment will be a celebration not expecting a trial to hit.  But see it may be during those joyous moments that we feel we don’t truly need or rely on God.

Then the minute the trials hit we fall on our knees in Prayer and grab our Bible.

But wait.. back up a minute.. I thought we needed God through both the hard times and the good times, matter of fact, every moment.  Then why do we forget Him in the celebration moments?

Could it be that we are having so much fun celebrating we don’t think about Him?

We need to remember that He gave us those joyous moments and trial moments and just like our family would want to celebrate with us, God wants to also.

He has given and blessed us with those joyous moments and He wants to be with us at all times.

Let’s thank God each and every day with every breath and pray not just when we need Him or because we think He has forgotten us.

Always know that He never forgets us yet we seem to forget Him.  He loves us so much that He gave his life and died for us.

Take a moment today and thank God for what you have and what He has on the way for you good or bad!!

She is not only a gifted writer but has had a great impact and helping hand in many areas of World Prayr.

From the beginning she has served with love, dedication, diligence and a pure servants heart. She is living proof that the Lord brings His own, each one with an integral unique gift, together as one to be a strong team of servants in Him.

Live for today, Pray for tomorrow





World Prayr has chosen to be different, starting with teaching others that the pilgrimage all those who have been brought near to God are on is not one about our focusing on what we are doing, or focusing on our sin or anything we are not doing, but focusing on what Christ did in order for us to know transforming grace. We refer to this message as the gospel of grace. We then live this out as a ministry by serving others through counseling, prayer, and sound biblical teachings.

We also differ from most ministries in another key area, working to live out the message of Philippians 2:4 by aggressively promoting other ministries and churches. As a mission team, World Prayr is working to serve those who are disconnected to reconnect them, one soul at a time, to local bodies of believers.

We refer to our team as an “Ohana” made up of many nationalities spread across the globe and within the Protestant faith.
