Praise Him in the Pit…

I waited patiently for the Lord; and He inclined unto me, and heard my cry. He brought me up also out of a horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock and established my goings. And He hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God; many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the Lord.  Psalm 40:1-4 Even in the pit, Praise Him.  He is there in the pit with us… Just like He was in the lions den, in the belly of a whale, and in the firey furnace. He will never leave or forsake you. The pit has a reason. Even though we may not see the whole picture, God does. We must trust Him. The pit may be the thing that finally brings you to your knees for you to LOOK UP, for you to cry out to Him to save you, for you to realize what areas in your life need to be shaped into His way. But now, O Lord, Thou art our Father; we are the clay, and Thou art our potter; and we all are the work of Thy hand. Isaiah 64:8 Yes, He is the potter and we are the clay. Thank you Lord, for shaping me. The pit can also be your testimony, to bring others to see Gods love. The struggles we go through could be the […]

The Harvest Truly Is Plentiful…

But when He saw the multitudes, He was filled with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd.  Then He said to his disciples, “The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few, therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.” Matthew 9:36-38 This Monday, my Momma and I traveled to my doctor appointment and couldn’t wait to eat at our favorite restaurant on the way back home.  As soon as we sat down, I heard the […]

Scatter His Joy, Sow His Love…

My God, you formed me in my mother’s womb. (Psalm 139:13) I praise you, because I was no accident.  Even in my momma’s womb, God had a plan for me.  He also has a plan for you.  The enemy can whisper lies to hinder us from being what God intended for us.  For example, the lies he has always shouted more than whispered to me… Betsy, you are too shy to pray out loud, you will just start crying if you sing or pray for others, you don’t know the […]

Pray Without Ceasing…Do Not Quench The Spirit…

It has been a while since I have wrote.  The reason being… I wait until I know the Lord is laying it on my heart.  I want to be sure of the verses He wants me to share.  Sometimes, it is as simple as me finding it highlighted already in my Bible… other times I have to pray and seek harder that the Lord will reveal to me what He wants shared.  It can be through someone speaking a verse to me or seeing a church sign that tugs at […]

Remembering This Day… Prayers and Praise…

Remembering this day, brings me to tears… It brings prayers and praise… let me explain… Since the 7th grade, I have had such sorrow in my heart on this day for all of those involved in the tragedy that struck our nation.  I remember sitting in class and my teacher flipped on the TV to see the horrifying news. For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and His ears are open to their PRAYERS; but the face of the Lord is against those who do evil. 1 Peter 3:12 When I arrived home that day, my parents explained further what had happened. I remember my Momma and I going to my church to pray for the victims, their families, our nation, and our soldiers.  I remember praying for my little brother who was just 1 year old at the time.  Praying for protection over his life with all this chaos going on, I felt like I needed to protect him with all of my might. (remember I’m just in the 7th grade, so with all the adults in my life worrying and crying you can imagine how scared I was) My baby brother was born when I was 11, so I somewhat feel like more of a mom to him than a big sister… (Protective sister to the extreme…Love you Bubba!)  I still have that same feeling of trying to protect him from everything in this world […]
