God knows me...



Our Heavenly Father knows everything about me just as He knows everything about you.  He know the things I have done, the sins I have committed and He knows my heart.  He knows when I am truly sorry for the things I have done and He knows when I am only paying lip service.  As I said He knows everything...

Father God today I am asking you to help me walk the path you have for me.  To help me to always be aware of others that I come in contact with, that they will see the glory of your Son Jesus Christ living in me.  Help me to be a light and not a stumbling block to others.  Help me to stay true to the course You have for me....  Amen

God's touch...



When we look up to the heavens we will see the many wonders God has blessed us with.  The sunrise or the sunset is filled with more colors than we could ever imagine.  So the next time you happen to see a sunrise or sunset let His Spirit permeate your soul, from the top of your head to the bottom of your feet, as you take in the beauty He has blessed us with in this world and all around us.

After all He is the master painter...

One day at a time...


We are told in God's Word to live each day to its fullness.  We are not to worry about yesterday nor tomorrow as God has already directed our days.  

There is an old song that goes like this:


I'm only human, I'm just a woman. 
Help me believe in what I could be 
And all that I am. 
Show me the stairway, I have to climb. 
Lord for my sake, teach me to take 
One day at a time. 

One day at a time sweet Jesus 
That's all I'm asking from you. 
Just give me the strength 
To do everyday what I have to do. 
Yesterday's gone sweet Jesus 
And tomorrow may never be mine. 
Lord help me today, show me the way 
One day at a time. 
So Father God help me to take life one day at a time fully trusting in You...

Joy...


Everyday that we receive from God is a present.  We awake each morning with a brand new start a head of us as yesterday is gone and tomorrow is not here.  What we do with that day is totally in our hands.  We can choose to walk our way without consulting God and His plan for us because we are given free choice.  When we do that we are simply saying God I've got this and I don't need you today.  I have found that when I do this I really mess things up and then I give them to God to straighten out.  Wouldn't it so much simpler to begin each and everyday with our Heavenly Father, asking Him for His guidance throughout our day.

Well I don't know about you but I will choose the joy of the Lord for without God's strength I would not make it through each day.

There is an old song that goes something like this...

The joy of the Lord is my strength
The joy of the Lord is my strength

He give me living water and I thirst no more
He give me living water and I thirst no more

For the joy of the Lord is my strength

So today choose joy, you will be so glad you did...

Shadows...



Have you noticed that as long as you are walking facing the sun you can not see your shadow.  Oh it will follow you where ever you go but will not dim the sun shining on you.

There is an old song that says this...

Turn your eyes upon Jesus
Look full in His wonderful face
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim
In the light of His glory and grace.

So when shadows try to over take you, focus your eyes on Jesus as He will make them grow dim and all you will see is the glory of God shining through....

Blessings...



We are always complaining about the blessings someone else has received wondering why God chose to bless them instead of us when we should be taking a look at our own life.  When we do that we will see that God has blessed each of us greatly.  All we have to do is look around us and we see more than we ever expected to see.  Each and every day He gives us so many blessings that our cups overflow with His bounty.

There is an old song that goes something like this:

Count your blessings, name them one by one
Count your blessings, see what God has done
Count your many blessings, name them one by one
And it will surprise you what the Lord has done

So when you are feeling low take a moment and Count Your Blessings.....
