Friends...



Does the number of friends you can boast about on Facebook or followers you have on Instagram make you feel important?  Are these the friends you can count on when you need that shoulder to cry on?  Are they someone you can rant and rave at when life has gotten all turned upside down and not take you personally?  We can have a multitude of friends but only a few that are there when the going gets tough, that will listen and not judge when you need that shoulder.  But there is only one true friend that is always there and that is Jesus.

I don't know about you but I am so glad that I can call Jesus my friend.  He is always there when the pain gets to much for me to bear.  He is there when I feel that I am at the very bottom of the pit with no place to go.  He will always take care of me and never forsake me.  He will cradle me in His loving arms and comfort me with the peace only He can give.  All I have to do is submit myself to Him and take all my worries and cares to Him in prayer.

God's Word tells us in Philippians 4:6 "Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplications with thanksgiving let your requests be made know to God."

I don't know about you but I choose to let God carry my burdens for He is so much stronger than I...

Rewarding Love


Life is full of the unexpected!  We often find ourselves wondering what in the world happened to us and how did we let this happen.  Truth be known we got a little bit to big for our britches and tried to do every thing ourselves by thinking we don't need anyone or anything.  But when we have really messed life up we let pride get in our way and refuse to ask for help.  Why?  God has already seen what we did and knows that we need help, help that is there simply by asking.

Get over that pride thing because we have all messed up.  God's Word tells us in Proverbs 29:23, "Pride brings a person low, but the lowly in spirit gain honor."

God is always loyal to us, He will never turn His back on us no matter how bad we messed up.  So ask and let Him demonstrate His unconditional love for you...

Giving us more...


Our God is so awesome!!!  My sweetie and I have been working really hard to pay off some credit cards which has been tough since we lost part of our income last year.  But our God is faithful and we have been able to pay off 2 credit cards as well as some medical bills we had incurred. Satan will throw everything he has at us when we really start to place our faith and trust in our Heavenly Father and His Son. 

God's Word promises us an abundant life to overflowing.  In John 10:10 we read, "The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

Stay strong and trust our Heavenly Father for He will bring us through what ever trial comes our way...

Joy



I am so glad that my Heavenly Father loves me and knows exactly what I am going to do each day.  He knows my thoughts as I plan my day and knows exactly what path I will take, even when I fail to ask for direction.  So I am choosing to seek His guidance as I plan my day and travel the path He has for me.  I am choosing to follow the will He has for my life for I know that He will never forsake me and I am safe as He cradles me in His loving arms.

God's Word tells me in Deuteronomy 33:12 "Let the beloved of the Lord rest secure in him, for he shields him all day long, and the one the Lord loves rests between his shoulders."

So I choose Joy for my life...

Don't forget to ask...


Has there ever been a time when you felt like God had deserted you?  I know I have felt like that a time or two but I soon realized that it was not God that had moved, it was me.  I had tried to do things on my own and had really messed them up.  So I was in that valley where I felt all alone.

God's Word tells us in James 4:8, "Draw near to God, and He will draw near to you."
Learn to trust that God is always walking beside you, to guide you and direct you daily.  Spend time with Him letting your needs be known to Him.  Oh I know He already knows what I need but His Word also tells me to ask and I will receive.

Prayers



Be still and know that I am God. 
Psalm 46:10

Sometimes during our quiet time, when we are offering our prayers up to God, we don't take the time to listen to what God is saying to us.  So linger a bit longer in God's presence and listen, really listen to Him.
