THE AFTERMATH OF 9/11

Jeremiah 17:9 The heart is deceitful above all things and desperately wicked; Who can know it???





Today as millions of Americans remember the tragic event of 9/11, my heart once again turns to my heavenly Father, who is the keeper of my heart. My source of love, when I don't feel love towards my enemy. The confidence I have in knowing, no evil thing goes unpunished. The only reason why I can be better, not bitter.


Job 22:21 Acquaint thyself with him and be at peace. Thereby good shall come unto thee.


With great honor and respect to those who died for our freedom and still fight, yesterday, today and tomorrow, may the Lord bless you, make his face to shine upon you, comfort you and give you that peace that passes all understanding, today and always. Thank you for our Freedom.





I will never forget that day when the whole world stopped and millions of Americans, all over the world, stood and watched as the tragedy of this day unfolded. The fear that gripped our hearts, not knowing what was happening. I thought of my children and people I loved, knowing I could not reach them, wondering if the last time I saw any of them, would forever be the last time.


All of America suddenly stopped and watched as 3000 men and women, tragically died before our eyes, realizing, our Freedom was being attacked. Our enemy came in, wanting to take control of our country and we saw, first hand, what our men and women of the Military, Fire and Rescue Departments, Police Force and every day American people, showed what we are made of.





Peace - translated from the Hebrew language, complete, sound.


The mighty men and women of valor who put their lives on the line, stepped up, died saving others, banning together for one cause, to rescue, persevere and protect each other. Praise God for our hero's.


Lord, we come to you and we ask you to be with each and every person who was affected by this tragic day. Lord we pray that we never forget those men and women who put their lives on the line for us every single day. We pray that the impact of this day will forever remain in our hearts. Give us the clarity of mind, to appreciate our freedom, to love one another, to stand together for that one cause that is greater than anything we have, to love our brother as ourselves, today and always. Let us never take for granted our freedom or the people who make that possible for us. Help us to remember where our source comes from, who we belong too and who it is that we all draw our character and hope from. It is you Lord. You are our precious, blessed remember. Help us never to forget to pray for our leaders of our Country. Lord give them wisdom, love and courage to make good choices.



Psalms 27:1 The Lord is my light and my salvation, whom shall I fear. The Lord is the strength of my life of whom shall I be afraid?.



God bless The USA

IT'S ALL ABOUT HIM

Set your affections on things above, not of this world.

Hello to my friends in J-Land that are so faithful to read my journal.  I hope and pray that those of you who read my journal, know that no matter what you are going through, the Lord is with you, loves you and has a plan for you and me, if we only will keep our focus on him.

I was reading tonight in Hosea, how the Lord was so angry with the Israelites because of their disobedience and how he poured out his wrath on them.  Their total disregard for the very basic ten commandments, which God set for all of us.

Hosea 6:4 My people perish for lack of knowledge.  Because you have rejected knowledge, I also will reject you from being priest for Me. Because you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children.

I thought about this scripture as I considered those days and how much they are like the very days we are living in today.  The lawlessness of this world which was once directed by the counsel and commands of our Savior.  I myself found such shortcomings in myself and had to ask the Lord to forgive me.  Life is not about me, it's about HIM, my Savior and his purpose for me.

That very thought reminded me of a poem I wrote, when once before, I was convicted for thinking life is about me.  I believe I've shared it before but feel it's worth sharing again.

Seek ye first the kingdom of God and HIS righteousness and all these things will be added unto you.  HE and HE alone will give you the desires of your heart. 

 

 

 

 

Not About Me

Lord I know you're watching and I know you have a plan

Because in your word you tell us, you have the whole world in your hand

You see much more than I do, you hear the cries of despair;

You know there are people suffering, not just me but everywhere

There are floods that come upon us, from the rains and fires and spills

Some people have no clue, Lord, they get rich and spin their wheels,

But you oh Lord know everything, you know your plans for good

If you only had a vessel who would heed your word like they should

This world has gone quite crazy, seems there's little black and white;

People searching for a way to make even great sin seem alright;

Such a selfish world we live in, people only love themselves

As your word does warn us clearly, seems we only see ourselves

But you oh Lord you’re awesome, if we only take your hand

And stand against the evil one and make our dream your plan

I wonder how you feel Lord, when we go off on our way;

With our plans in mind to please ourselves, not caring what you say

Oh we find some joy and laughter but it all comes to an end

For you oh Lord are everything and sin can never win

Lord help us to remember, you have the whole world in your sights

And we must resist the evil one and fight with all our might

Put on your holy armor, start each day with humble prayer

Be aware of those around us, people suffering everywhere

For you oh Lord know everything you word rings loud and clear

If we'd only stop and listen, we would know that you are near

There's nothing you can't handle, there's no place you can't be

Lord, help me to remember, life isn't always about me.
