TRUST THE LORD

roselock.gif

 

Hello my friends.  So many of us are going through the trials of life.  The process is giving us more faith, more hope, more of a closer walk with the Lord as we continue to hope in him but it's so very hard.  The Lord knows how hard it is for us to learn because many times, we try to take things into our own hands and control situations as they arise. Try to understand what is going on but we really don't know because God is the only one who see's everything and knows everything.

 As great as his love is for us, he gives us free will. He steps back, waits patiently and reaches out his hand to us when we call on him. That's where we will find him, with open arms to hold us near.

Isaiah 41 : 13  For I the Lord will hold thy hand, Saying to thee, fear not for I am with thee.

Matthew 22 : 36 - 40  Master, which is the great commandment in the law?? Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all your heart, with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first great commandment.  And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love they neighbor as thyself.  On these two commandments hang all the law and prophets.

 

 

1 Corinthians 10 :13 There is no temptation that has taken you but that which is common to man. but God is faithful who will not suffer you to tempted above that ye are able, but will with the temptation also make a way for you to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.

Isaiah 40 : 31 They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mounta up with wings as eagles.  They shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.

The Lord is faithful to hear our prayers and be here for us in time of trouble.  All one has to do is to read the word of God to find the promises he has for us.  He says that he knows his plans for us and that they are for our good, not to hurt us.
I do trust the Lord with all my heart.  Great trials bring great strength and joy. 
 
I will wait upon the Lord, I will claim and count on the strength he promises to me and I will believe all good things.

CHILDREN

    Twoyoungangels.jpg

We only get one shot, make it count.

 

My heart is truly set on children today.  Not just mine but the children of  this world who are the forgotten, discarded, abused, un loved, lost, searching children.  How my heart does go out for them everywhere.

The Bible has a lot to say about children because the Lord has so much to say about children.  Even though the world would appear to have forgotten their value, our Lord certainly has not.  The heart of a mother who longs to do the right things, give the right guidance, speak the best wisdom and teach the very best she can.  Only God can teach her how.

Psalms 127: 3-4  Lo, children are the heritage of the Lord and the fruit of the womb is his reward. As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man, so are children of the youth.

How much more clear can it be?  How much more value can the Lord say that he puts on our children?  Satan knows how the heart of God does weep for our children and how much they mean to him.  Satan knows that there is little more that can bring us to our knees than our children who are suffering and hurting.

Have you ever tried to pick up a box?  You look at it and go to pick it up but when you do, you realize that the box is much heavier than you first thought so you brace yourself, pull together more strength and you pick up that box.

That is how I feel about our children.  I've always cared deeply for children and I have always been one of those people who attract children.  I help when I can, pray for them, love them, give them a safe place to be but it's not until the enemy has attacked, is attacking one of these precious little ones that I understand how big this battle is for our children.  It isn't until I see the damage that can come from a mother's lack of prayers,fervent prayers, that I see and understand how huge the battle is for our children.

 

When Jesus was teaching and the crowds were following him, there came a time when the children were brought to him to be blessed and even his disciples rebuked them.  As if they were not important like the adults.

Matthew 19: 14 - 15  But Jesus said, Suffer the little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me; for of such is the kingdom of heaven. And he laid his hands on them and then departed.

Even the Lord, above all things, took time to show the children how important, how special they are.  The world has gone crazy, children are rebelling against the cruelty that is shown to them by their guardians, parent's.  Even if your child is loved and cared for, the influence of the children who don't have that love, cause our children to strike out and rebell.  Satan is having a field day with our children.  He stops at nothing to hurt them, destroy them, break them and damage them beyond damage.  It's time for us to take a stand and defend our children, fight for them, never give up, put all you have into lifting them up.  As the mighty soldier never puts down his sword until the battle is over, so must we stand and fight for our children.   Don't wait until your child is in trouble, pray for them daily, cover them in your prayers and never let God forget to remind Satan that your children are protected by God and that he can not have them.

Prayer .........  Oh heavenly father, most gracious savior .........                              

Forgive me for  any way that I may have neglected children or not done everything in my power to keep my children protected and safe.  Forgive me for not praying for them every single day and asking you to keep them safe.  Give me wisdom to know how to reach their hearts and give them sound advice, in a world which continues to lower the age of what a child can do, giving power to a child and taking the right of parents to protect their children.  Please watch over them and protect them from the enemy.  Pour your love and bounty over them and heal their hearts. I mostly humbly thank you for your word and instruction for children.  You tell us in your word to raise up our children in the way that they should go and they will come back.  You tell us in your word that you are faithful to finish the good work you begin in us.  Lord, praise you and thank you that you see all things, know all things and can do anything.  Amen

LAWLESSNESS OF MAN

BLESS THEM FATHER, FOR THEY KNOW NOT WHAT THEY DO

thjesuspray.jpg

love20you20rosewriter.gif

Consider for a moment, the lawlessness of man.  One might look at this lawlessness as a Civil War, between right and wrong.   It's not that God changed his mind and decided that the TEN COMMANDMENTS was part of the Old Law or even that he gave them to us as a suggestion.  The Ten Commandments were given to us by God as a simple instruction on how one should live their lives.  Every scripture in the Bible is some how connected to the TEN COMANDMENTS, in one way or another.  Ten pillars of instruction, based of love and sin, given to help us find that abundant life God has for us, rather than to fall victims of sin and it's destruction.

People argue good and bad on a daily basis.  Even something as clear as murder can be excused if one single piece of the case to prove murder, is not processed properly or simply not entered into all the evidence.  Does that mean that the person who is accused of murder, who is actually guilty, is someone released from their accountability for their actions?   All the grey in the minds of people, Christians or not Christians.  People who believe in God or don't.  Every single one of us ARE accountable for what we do and say and one day, God will judge us all.

Still, while we are here on earth, there are some of us who take the law of God, bend it, twist it, re mold it into something that will fit into their idea of right and wrong.  Because of it, people suffer and go unpunished in this world.  People take no thought to what will happen when they meet their maker and do their own thing.

God gives us all freedom of will.  Even when a child is being beaten and it grieves the holy spirit, deeply in his heart, the person who is doing the beating is given free will to do so while God stands back and cries in his heart at the abuse of his gift, FREE WILL.

There is no grey in the Word Of God.  It's as black and whiteas it reads.  Man, they are the ones who coat the word with their grey and their carnal thinking and even lead others to see their way. not the way of the Lord.

2 Peter 1:  3-11

According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:  Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises that by these ye might be partaker of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.  And besides this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue, and to virtue, knowledge;  And to knowledge, temperance; and to temperance, patience, and to patience, godliness;  And to godliness, brotherly kindness and to brotherly kindness, charity.  For if there things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.  But he that lacketh these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins.  Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall.  For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Stand up for Jesus.  Stand strong against the sin of man who accepts sin if and when it provides the result for the selfishness and un accountability.  Be bold for the Lord, no matter what the cost.  Add to the light in the world and be that light in this world and do not accept sin.            BE SOLDIERS FOR JESUS.

SEEK THE LORD

 

                                      image004.jpg

 

Hello my friends, most of you who know me, know that the Lord has been doing a mighty work in me.  You know that I am going through a tremendous trail with my daughter and the Lord has taken me under his wing and is walking me through everything.  The things that he has been able to show me and teach me through all of this is amazing.  I'm changing; my attitude is changing, my heart is changing, my personal relationship with Jesus is growing, seems like every second of the day.  I have purposed in my heart to share with all of you, as much as I can.  With the Lords help and my determination, I am learning more about my journal and how it works so that I can dedicate it to the Lord and give my very best to him. So, I dedicate this entry to the Lord and ask that he bless it according to his will.

 

                                

Seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness and all these things will be added unto you.  Matthew 6:33

In the book of Matthew, when Jesus was walking the earth and teaching as he went. He had a multitude of people who walked after him, listening to him, learning from him, questioning him and learning from him.  As he walked along, he he came to a ship and sat on it and the crowds of people who followed him, listened from the shore.  He spoke in parables and gave illustrations to the things that he spoke. He told of the sower and the seed,  the fishers net and many other illustrations so that he could do his best to teach the crowds that followed him.

As part of his teaching, inthe very beginning, he instructed the crowds, "seek ye first the kingdon of God".  The very first thing that we must choose to do before we can have a walk, relationship wtih the Lord.

What does it mean to seek the Lord??  The Bible tells us to seek him with all our hearts, all our souls, all our minds.  How much more simple can it be??  To search out, understand, get to know the very heart and soul and personality of God.  The one who is, The Way, The Truth and The Light.  God doesn't ask us to do anything without preparing us with the ability to do his will.  He has provided for us all, a book. The Bible, The Very Word of God, that tells us everything we need to know in order to have a relationship with him.

Today I ask you, do you have a personal relationship with God??  If you do, are you always seeking to grow deeper in your knowledge of him, truth about him?  Do you seek to know his heart and give him the place in your life that he longs for??

John 3:16, For God so loved he world that he gave his only begotten son that who so ever shall believe in him will not perish but have EVER LASTING LIFE.

Today, I encourage you to meet my friend Jesus.  To understandthe power that is given to you, by him, to over come the trials of this life.  To have that peace that passes all understanding, knowing the you are under the wing of the greatest, hightest, most excellant power of this world. JESUS.

THE HEART OF GOD

THE VERY HEART OF GOD

I recently heard someone say that in order to truly know the heart of God, one must go deeper into their suffering and understanding of God's heart, in order to understand him.

We live in a worLd where people look at infidelity as a no no, but it's ok, everyone is doing it.  God says, it is a sin, a sin against God, how can it be ok?  We live in a world where the world beats up on it's children, discards them when life gets too tough and it's ok, everyone's doing it.  God says, children are a gift from God, an expression of love.  We live in a world where families are broken and little girls grow up without their daddies and spend a life time of destruction trying to fill the void that is left.  The world says, it's ok, they can take it but God says, that our children are precious and to not provoke our children to wrath. We live in a world where there are still people who love their children, sacrifice for them, protect them, provide for them, love them, comfort them, teach them, give our lives for them.  The world makes laws that say that a child at the age of 16 is an adult and can make adult choices.  Where they can take your child right out from under you and you are powerless to do anything about it and your heart grieves so deeply that only the love of God can get you through the pain.  God says, raise your children up in the way that they should go and they will return.

We live in a world where love is so abused that people shut down and hide from the world just so they don't have to risk ever being hurt by love again and yet God says, LOVE is the greatest gift from God.

The world is a evil and selfish place.  It's as bad as it was when Noah built that ark and God destroyed the world.  It's as bad as Soddon and Gamorah and all the signs are there that the Lord is returning soon and yet, people are living it up, getting as much as they can, take no thought for what God has spoken or what he has told us that will come to pass.

Yet, God is long suffering, patient, kind, compassionate, faithful, loving, all wise, all powerful, free will, earnestly, believing all things ..... waiting so that not even one soul should perish.

A mother buries her child, a man watches his wife die of cancer, a family is killed by a drunk driver.  People are stealing and robbing and beating homeless people and the grief and sadness that we feel, it is but a taste of what God feels in his heart.  You see, God is everywhere, sees everything and knows everything.  The un imaginable broken heartedness that we feel is multiplied a million times a day, every single day.  That is the heart of God.  Who put the stars in the sky and created this most beautiful world, giving his very best to his children and loving us with all his heart.  Yet, we turn around and we spit on him, mock him, test him, tempt him and abuse the love he has for us by using the gift of free will to completely disobey his commands and hurting his heart deeply.

On this day, the day of LOVE.  Stop, think about your creator, who gave you his very best and people just turn their back on him. One day he will come back.  His patience will end and he will come with a mighty triumph and judge this world.  What then will you say when you have to see his precious face, up front and personal and explain why you didn't listen, didn't obey, didn't love him, didn't put him first??

Today, I have love, because I have the Lord, no one can love me better.  Today I am a better person because I am loved by God.  Today, my Valentine is the Lord who will continue to encourage my heart, suffering long with me, give me strength and help my heart get through the loss of my little girl, who I carried in my womb, raised everyday of her life, sacrificed for, took care of, gave my everything to and the world and it's man made laws, not based on the word of God, let her be taken from me.  God, will suffer through this with me and I will survive it.  Thank you Lord, mostly humbly and respectful, with a heart full of gratitude for you, thank you for LOVING ME.

YOU TRULY ARE THE VERY ESSENCE OF LOVE

LOVE

Once again we find ourselves at the threshold of Valentine's Day, a day that celebrates LOVE.  It is no wonder to me that the whole world takes part in this wonderful day, to express their love for another person.  After all, LOVE, is the greatest gift from God.  It has the power to lift us off of our feet, break our heart, make us spend a life time looking for it and we all, everyone of us long to be LOVED.   It is tragic when love has been used in any form other that what God intended it to be.  Sometimes it happens because we don't know any better, because maybe the parents we have didn't know any better.  Maybe even in the best of intentions, some of us have been guilty of using love to get our own way, force someone into something they don't want to do.  Maybe in our hearts we believe that we love someone the best we possibly can and defend that love with all our might.  Maybe it's just as simple as loving the best way we know how and in our minds, that makes it right.  No matter how we view love, nothing takes away from the beauty in the gift that it is intended to be because God loves us so much.  John 3:16 says ...... For God so loved the world that he gave his only son to die for us so that anyone who believes will not die but will live forever with him one day.  He loves us so much that he created this wonderful, beautiful world and gave us the best of everything so that we could live in peace, love, beauty and joy.

In your heart of hearts, when you truly believe you love someone, isn't that what you want for them?  The very best that life has to offer and you give it to them freely, willingly and allow them to make their own choices.  You allow them to make their own choices, even when you know it's not in their best interest.  Just like God loves us and allows us to make choices, even when it's not in our best interest.  But love, never leaves, never gives us, never demands it's own way, never stops believing the best, hoping for the best, wanting the best for you. Love has the desire to find the truth, be understanding, compassionate, long suffering, it is not selfish or unkind, it never fades.

It's a tragedy when love has been abused.  Whena
