Sing Praises Unto Our King…

Courage…strength… peace… All 3 things I needed this past Sunday morning. Let me take you back to a Sunday morning in my past (as a youngster…probably 12?)…I got up to sing “God so loved the world” only to get half way through, glancing into the congregation, seeing my Great Aunt with tears streaming down her cheeks. Seeing her cry, made me begin crying and I ran back to my seat without finishing the song. The rest of the service, I just wanted to hide under my Momma’s arm from embarrassment and fear… Embarrassment because I was not able to finish the song, crying in front of everyone… Fear… because I was so worried about what everyone would think or say about me. Of course, my Great Aunt came to me explaining she was touched by the song was the reason for her tears. At the age I was though, I just couldn’t understand it. (Yes, I knew Jesus… but not at such a personal profound relationship yet.) I had been in Christmas plays at my church, even sung with others and with a lady that played the piano… I sang at church with a friend who played the guitar and finally made it through without tears. Still yet, I wanted to run and hide because I was so worried about what others may think or how I sounded or what they may say once church was over and they go […]

He Will Make A Way, Even In The Wilderness…

There are times in life, I feel like I’m on a Merry-Go-Round at the carnival… going round and round thinking, “Will someone please let me off this ride, I’m tired of doing the same thing over and over without a different outcome”… Or stuck in the Maze Of Mirrors thinking, “I’ve already tried this way, it’s a dead end… and yep, I tried the opposite way and you guessed it, I can’t get out that way either”… Merry-Go-Round – The Lord sees my situation swirling out of control and hears my pleas of asking Him for help. He will grab the brake on the Merry-Go-Round and lay out His mighty path for me. Maze of Mirrors – He sees me when I’ve tried every direction, getting knocked down and still can’t find His way. He will have the sun reflect on the correct mirror for me to pass through that leads to His will. Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert. Isaiah 43:19 Oh, how sweet it is… to know God will make us a way in all of life’s Merry-Go-Round/Maze of Mirrors situations. When I’m tired and weary…ready to throw my hands up in anguish and defeat…not hearing from Him or knowing which way to turn… I must remember 1 Timothy 6:12 “Fight the good […]

Lean Not Unto Thine Own Understanding…

A morning this week, I headed out to the Dollar Tree. One of my favorite places to go, something about it just makes me all giddy on the inside… I mean… come on, I think it’s because of all the goodies for ONE DOLLAR… Pencils, pens, hair bows, fingernail polish, chocolates, toys, cards (love cards!), flip flops…the possibilities are endless. Each time I go in,  I find different things. I love going in during different seasons to see what all they have.  I usually have to tell myself, “Enough!”… because […]

Blessed is the Nation whose God is the Lord…

Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord… Psalm 33:12 As I was riding along this weekend, I happened to notice that Bible verse on a church sign. How true… With God in the center, everything falls into place how it should. I am so thankful for the Land of the Free in which I live… Free because of the BRAVE… who gave their ALL. I salute you and your families… for giving such a sacrifice. Words will never be enough to express the gratitude that I have for you […]

My Abba!!! If I Could Only Touch Your Garment…

Many are the plans in a man’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails. Proverbs 19:21 Full of excitement, last Friday I started packing bags for vacation. A week off with my hubby…Could not WAIT, it didn’t matter where we ended up as long as we were together…. only to get hit with sickness…    Sickness that has came with pain… pain I’ve had to shout to my Heavenly Father to carry me through. Pain that was far worse than my kidney stone or any pain I have ever had to endure.  Walk-in clinic visit, ER visit, a visit to my regular doctor, and many calls to my gastroenterologist (Crohn’s doctor)…      Yes, many are the plans in a man’s heart, but it IS the LORD’s purpose that prevails. Exactly a year ago, this very same week.. I was hospitalized and prompted by my Heavenly Father to start this blog. Of course, as I have mentioned… I put it off until I couldn’t sleep at night worried about my grammar, what I would write, or if it even matters if I write at all… Even this week, I have fell short and put off writing due to fear, being tired, or just all the emotions I have went through this week. But guess what… I have not found peace until I decided to open my laptop, open His word, and let His words flow out of me..giving […]

God is…

God is… Mighty….. He is more powerful than any circumstance in your life… The Lord on high is mightier Than the noise of many waters, Than the mighty waves of the sea. Psalm 93:4 But the Lord is with me as a mighty, awesome One. Therefore my persecutors will stumble, and will not prevail. Jeremiah 20:11   God is… LOVE….If you accept Him as your Lord and Savior, nothing will be able to separate you from Him and His love… And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand. John 10:28 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 Your sake we are killed all day long; We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.” Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who 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 or depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:35-39   God is… Our Protection…. He will protect you… For You, O Lord, will bless the righteous; With favor You will surround him as with a shield. Psalm 5:12 […]

His Peace…

Peace I leave with you…My Peace I give to you not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. John 14:27 Be anxious for nothing, but everything in prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds throughout Christ Jesus.  Philippians 4:6-8 But Jesus looked at them and said, “With men it is impossible, but not with God; for […]
