Amy's Bible

"What's wrong?" Amy asked her mom, who stood in the bedroom doorway.

"Grandpa's sick," Mom replied. "Daddy and I are going to take him to the hospital."

Amy ran to her grandparents' room. She sat on the bed and took Grandma's hand. "Is Grandpa going to die?"

I don't know sweetheart," Grandma said. "But if he does, I know he'll go to Heaven. I'm thankful God loves us and has made a wonderful place for us to live forever."

"Grandma," asked Amy, "will I go to Heaven when I die?"

Amy's grandma gave her a huge hug. "You will if you ask Jesus to be your Savior. Look in my Bible with me. I've used it to tell many children how to go to Heaven. I'll show you, too." She turned the pages of her Bible as she spoke.

"This verse says that God always does what is best. And here's a verse that explains that we have all done wrong things called sins. We deserve to be punished. But this verse says that Jesus died to wash away our sins so we can live with Him...forever."

Amy bowed her head and prayed, "Dear God, please forgive for the wrong things I've done. Thank You, Jesus, for coming to save me. I accept You oh Lord as my Savior. Amen."

"Here sweetheart." Grandma handed her Bible to Amy.

"I want you to have this."

From that day on, Amy read it every morning and prayed,

Dear Jesus, I want to tell other children how much You love them, just like Grandma told me.

"God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son. Anyone who believes in him will not die but will have eternal life." John 3:16

Have you accepted Jesus as your Savior?
How would you help someone else except Jesus as their Savior?
Also read 2 Corinthians 5:15 and 17


(Got it from a book. "Walking with Jesus, One step at a Time")

God bless!!!

Book of Acts


You are a member of a very special group: the church of Jesus Christ. The people in this group care about you. They will support you when you're down and help you when doing right seems hard. They love you, and you love them. You're family.

The book of Acts tells how this family began and grew. Some people think "church" is just a building where people go to worship. In fact, for nearly 300 years there were no church buildings! In the book of Acts you'll learn the truth.

The church is people, people who love Jesus and care about each other.


1. What brings people close to each other? (Acts 2:42-47)

The fellowship of believers They are devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. Everyone was filled with awe, and many wonders and miraculous signs were done by the apostles. All the believers were together and had everything in common. Selling their possessions and goods, they gave to anyone as he had need. Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.

2. How can others help when you're facing tough decisions? (Acts 4:23-31)

The believers' prayer On their release, Peter and John went back to their own people and reported all that the chief priests and elders had said to them. When they heart this, they raised their voices together in prayer to God. "Sovereign Lord," they said, "you made the heaven and the earth and the sea. and everything in them. You spokes by the Holy Spirit through the mouth of your servant, our father David:

"'Why do the nations rage
and the peoples plot in vain?
The kings of the earth take their stand
and the rulers gather together
against the Lord
and against his Anointed One.

Indeed Herod and Pontius Pilate met together with the Gentiles and the people of Israel in this city to conspire against your holy servant Jesus, whom you anointed. They did what your power and will had decided beforehand should happen. Now Lord, consider their threats and enable your servants to speak your word with great boldness. Strech out your hand to heal and perform miraculous signs and wonders through the name of your holy servant Jesus"
After they prayed, the place where they were meeting was shaken. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and spoke the word of God boldly.

3. Have you ever prayed for something and then been surprised by the answer you got? (Acts 12: 1-19)

Peter's Miraculous Escape From prison It was about this time that King Herod arrested some who belonged to the church, intending to persecute them. He had James, the brother of John, put to death with the sword. When he saw that this pleased the Jews, he proceeded to seize Peter also. This happened during the feast OF Unleavened Bread. After arresting him, he put him in prison, handing him over to be guarded by four squads of four soldiers each. Herod intended to bring him out for public trial after the Passover.

So Peter was kept in prison, but the church was earnestly praying to God for him.
The night before Herod was to bring him to trial, Peter was sleeping between two soldiers , bound with chains and sentries stood guard at the entrance. Suddenly an angel of the Lord appeared and a light shone in the cell. He struck Peter on the side and woke him up. "Quick, get up!" he said, and the chains fell of Peter's wrists.

Then the angel said to him, "Put on your clothes and sandals." And Peter did so. "Wrap your clock around you and follow me." the angel told him. Peter followed him out of the prison, but he had no idea that what the angel was doing was really happening; he thought he was seeing a vision. They passes the first and second guards and came to the iron gate leading to the city. It opened for them by itself, and they went through it. When they had walked the length of one of the street, suddenly the angel left him.
Then Peter came o himself and said, "Now I know without a doubt that the Lord sent his angel and rescued me from Herod's clutches and from everything the Jewish people were anticipating."

When this had dawned on him, he went to the house of Mary the mother of John also called Mark, where many people had gathered and were praying. Peter knocked at the outer entrance, and a servant girl named Rhoda came to answer the door. When she recognized Peter's voice, she was so overjoyed she ran back without opening it and exclaimed , "Peter is at the door!"

"You're out of your mind," they told her. When she kept insisting that it was so, they said, "It must be his angel."

But Peter kept on knocking, and when they opened the door and saw him, they were astonished. Peter motioned with his hand for them to be quiet and described how the Lord had brought him out of prison. "Tell James and the brothers about this," he said, and then left for another place.

In the morning, there was no small commotion among the soldiers as to what had become of Peter. After Herod had a thorough search made for him and did not find him, he cross-examined the guards and ordered that they be executed.

4. Have you ever fallen asleep during a long sermon? (Acts 20:7-12)

Eutychus raised from the dead at Troas On the first day of the week we came together to break bread. Paul spoke to the people and, because he intended to leave the next day, kept on talking until midnight. There were many lamps in the upstairs room where we were meeting. Seated in a window was a young man named Eutychus, who was sinking into a deep sleep as Paul talked on and on. When he was sound asleep, he fell to the ground from the third story and was picked up dead. Paul went down, threw himself on the young man and put his arms around him. "Don't be alarmed," he said. "He's alive!" Then he went upstairs again and broke bread and ate. After talking until daylight, he left. the people took the young man home alive and were greatly comforted.

Padre Pio's incorrupt body

About Padre Pio Padre Pio,
a humble Capuchin priest from San Giovanni Rotondo, Italy, was blessed by God in many wonderful and mysterious ways. The most dramatic was the stigmata. Padre Pio bore the wounds of Christ for fifty years! Among his other gifts were perfume, bilocation, prophecy, conversion, reading of souls, and miraculous cures. People are still being cured through his intercession in ways that cannot be explained by medicine or science. More important, if less spectacular, are the spiritual healings that take place in all parts of the world! Padre Pio is a powerful intercessor!!
Padre Pio's incorrupt body! To see him resting so peacefully it's hard to believe that he died 40 years ago!

A Prayer to Padre Pio
Beloved Padre Pio, today I come to add my prayer to the thousands of prayers offered to you every day by those who love and venerate you in Jesus' name. They ask for cures and healings, earthly and spiritual blessings, and peace for body and mind.
And because of your friendship with the Lord, he heals those you ask to be healed, and forgives those you ask be forgiven in Jesus' name. Through your visible wounds of the Crucified Jesus, which you bore for 50 years, you were chosen in our time to glorify the crucified Jesus.
Because the Cross has been replaced by other symbols, please help us bring back the veneration of the wounds of Jesus Christ, for we acknowledge His Precious Blood as true a sign of salvation, cleansing and purifcation.

As we lovingly recall the wounds that pierced your hands, feet and side, like beloved Jesus Christ, we not only remember the blood He shed as you also shed in pain, along with your smile, and the invisible halo of sweet smelling flowers that surrounded your presence, certainly the Scent of The Lord, symbolic as the perfume of sanctity.

Padre Pio, may the healings of the sick become the testimony that the Lord has invited you to join the holy company of Saints. In your kindness, please help me with my own special request: (mention here your petition, and make the sign of the Cross).

Bless me and my loved ones. In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen.

In Memoriam J.S.
The following quotes of Padre Pio tell how he looked after and loved his spiritual family:

'I love my Spiritual Children as much as my own soul and even more.'

'Once I take a soul on, I also take on their entire family as my spiritual children.'

'To my Spiritual Children, my prayers for you will never be lacking.'

'If one of my spiritual children ever goes astray, I shall leave my flock and seek him out.'

One night a man had a dream.
He dreamed he was walking along
the beach with the LORD. Across the sky he noticed two sets of footprints
in the sand , one belonged to him,
and the other to the LORD.

When the last scene of his life
flashed before him , he looked back
at the footprints in the sand. He
noticed that many times along the path of his life there was only one
set of footprints. He also notices that it happens at the lowest
and saddest times in his life.

This really bothered him and
he questioned the Lord about it
"LORD , you said that once I decided to follow you , you'd walk with me all the way. But I have noticed that during the most troublesome times of my life , there is only one set of footprints. I don't understand why when I needed you the most you would leave me."

The LORD replied " My precious child , I love you and I would never leave you.
During your time of trial and suffering , when you
see only one set of footprints , it was then that
I carried you."

Carry your cross

We complain about the cross we bear but don't realize it is preparing us for the dip in the road that God can see and we cannot.

Whatever your cross,
whatever your pain,
there will always be sunshine,
after the rain....
Perhaps you may stumble,
perhaps even fall;
But God's always ready,
to answer your call....
He knows every heartache,
sees every tear,
a word from His lips,
can calm every fear...
Your sorrows may linger,
throughout the night,
But suddenly vanish,
dawn's early light...
The Savior is waiting,
somewhere above,
to give you His grace,
and send you His love...
