There are many people in this world who would rather not go to Church or
invest their time in serving the Lord. They may have a low self-esteem or
think their life does not make any difference, but that is exactly the
opposite of what God thinks of them. (Jeremiah 29:11) (1 Peter 5:6-7)
Every life that is on the earth is here for a reason and not here by
mistake. As you read this message with the missing E's; I hope you can
begin to understand how much you mean to God and how your absence from
serving is noticed even though you may not think so.
Evxn though my typxwritxr is an old modxl, it works quitx wxll xxcxpt for
onx of the kxys. I havx many timxs wishxd that it workxd pxrfxctly. It is

Remember this story and never allow yourself to be a broken key – but
rather challenge yourself to be a useful one.
This typewriter message does not only pertain to a church congregation, but
should be remembered in every area where God is concerned. If the enemy
has come against you and given you thoughts of quitting your work unto the
Lord, I want you to remember the missing key in this typewriter story and
how that whole message was altered because of one missing key.
Never allow anyone to tell you that your life does not matter. As long as
you have air in your lungs, God has a purpose and plan for your life. You
are just as important as every one of those keys on the typewriter and in
a human perspective are just as important as everyone else, so you be
encouraged and know that you are very much needed.
Read and meditate on these scriptures:
Romans 12:4-8 "For as we have many members in one body, and all members
have not the same office: So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and
every one members one of another. Having then gifts differing according to
the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according
to the proportion of faith; Or ministry, let us wait on our ministering:
or he that teacheth, on teaching; Or he that exhorteth, on exhortation: he
that giveth, let him do it with simplicity; he that ruleth, with
diligence; he that sheweth mercy, with cheerfulness."
Jeremiah 29:11-13 “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith
the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected
end. Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I
will hearken unto you. And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall
search for me with all your heart.”
Romans 8:35-39 "Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall
tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or
peril, or sword? As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day
long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. Nay, in all these
things we are more than conquerors through Him that loved us. For I am
persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities,
nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth,
nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God,
which is in Christ Jesus our Lord."
All scriptures can be found in the King James Version.
I do thank the Lord for His continued leading in this Ministry and I do
give Him all the Glory, Honor, and Praise for the many blessings that are
coming forth from this work that God has called us to. I hope you are
being blessed and encouraged by the messages that God has led us in sending
you and I ask you to please keep this Ministry in your prayers for God's
anointing and continued leading.
In Christ Service,
Gods Work Ministry
