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 […]

In The Beginning…

After mowing at my Granny and Pa’s house, I noticed this tree…. So full and bursting with green color… It made me think of, “In the beginning… God created….”   In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth… God spoke, “Let there be light”….and there was light. God saw that the light was good. What a sight that would have been to see. Our powerful God making our earth and the heavens. The Bible tells us… “and God saw that it was good”… after everything He made. In […]

As the deer pants for the water brooks…

“Hey, heard you were up all night thinking about how your world ain’t right and you wonder if things will ever get better… asking why is it always raining on you… Go on, FALL into the arms of Jesus…When in the waves are taking you under…hold on just a little bit longer… He knows that this will make you stronger, stronger… the pain ain’t gonna last forever and things can only get better… God’s right there”  Lyrics from the song Stronger by Mandisa That song is one that’s been playing […]

Under His Wings…

He shall cover you with His feathers, And under His wings you shall take refuge…     Psalm 91:4 Oh…how this verse has such profound meaning to me now. Bittersweet….  A verse that always puts a smile on my face, a tear in my eye, and a whispered prayer for a dear sister in Christ. “From the end of the earth I will cry to You, when my heart is overwhelmed; Lead me to the rock that is HIGHER than I. For you have been a shelter for me, a strong tower from the enemy. I will abide in your tabernacle forever; I will trust in the shelter of Your WINGS.” Psalm 61:2-4 “Be merciful to me, O God, be merciful to me! For my soul trusts in You; and in the shadow of Your wings I will make my refuge, until these calamities have passed by.” Psalm 57:1 “The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous and his ears are attentive to their cry.”      Psalm 34:15 Under His wings find a shelter to run to, find protection and shelter from the pain. Cry out to the ROCK that is higher than you. Let Him fill your cup until it runs over with HIS Almighty strength and comfort. We can all draw strength from Him, our strong tower. He always hears and helps those who love Him. Pain is unbearable… no one can comprehend what the person is […]

Time…

Time… We all think we don’t have enough time to get all of our tasks done. We all have thought….Oh, I will just call or visit my family/friends tomorrow…I don’t have time to hold open a door for that elderly person, I have to get in here and out so I can hurry home, get supper and laundry done before my “show” comes on…or I don’t have time to set aside a few minutes in the morning or night to PRAY and THANK the Almighty One who gave me my next breath. Thats right….. your next breath. He gives you your next inhale and exhale of oxygen. We are not promised the next second of our life. In an instant, He can decide if it is your time to be taken from this earth. Come now, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to such and such a city, spend a year there, buy and sell, and make a profit, whereas you do not know what will happen tomorrow, for what is life? It is even a VAPOR that appears for a little time and then vanishes away. Instead you ought to say, “If the Lords will, we shall live and do this or that.”                                 James 4:13-15 Man is like a breath; His days are like a passing shadow. Psalm 144:4 He […]

Jesus, What a Hero…

For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son… His one and only son… JESUS who LOVED us so much, He suffered and died on a cross for our sins. Easter, such an important time to focus on what all Jesus went through for us. He gave up His life for each of us, having no guarantee that anyone would love Him or would accept His amazing gift of eternity in Heaven. He walked this earth as a man, just like me and you… Breathed the same smells, felt the same wind blowing against His cheek, and endured the same temptations we face. Jesus, what a Hero. He endured such suffering on the day He gave His life for us. He was betrayed by Judas (one of His own followers), suffered an excruciating beating, a crown of thorns pushed down into His head, mocked by many, denied by Peter 3 times (one of his followers), had to carry His own cross, had a nail pierced into each of His hands and feet (3 total), cried out He was thirsty..only to be offered wine vinegar on a sponge, and hung on a cross between two criminals. Through all of His pain and suffering, He still cried out with loving compassion for the soldiers…”Father, forgive them for they know not what they do”. One of the criminals said, “Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom.”  Jesus answered […]
