For You, O Lord, have made me glad by what You have done,
I will sing for joy at the works of Your hands.
How great are Your works, O Lord!
Your thoughts are very deep.
Psalm 92:4-5

We serve an awesome God, a Heavenly Father who wants to gives us our hearts desire.  He meets our daily needs and gives us things we don't deserve.  He is the bread of life.  All He asks is for us to serve Him and tell others about Him.  I so want to be the obedient child and do what He asks of me.  I want to put the needs of others ahead of my own needs.  I want to be the child that my Heavenly Father delights in and a child who looks up to Him in faith.

Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee

Joyful, joyful, we adore Thee, God of glory, Lord of love;
Hearts unfold like flowers before Thee, opening to the sun above.
Melt the clouds of sin and sadness; drive the dark of doubt away;
Giver of immortal gladness, fill us with the light of day!
All Thy works with joy surround Thee, earth and heaven reflect Thy rays, Stars and angels sing around Thee, center of unbroken praise.
Field and forest, vale and mountain, flowery meadow, flashing sea,
Singing bird and flowing fountain call us to rejoice in Thee.
Thou art giving and forgiving, ever blessing, ever blessed,
Wellspring of the joy of living, ocean depth of happy rest!
Thou our Father, Christ our Brother, all who live in love are Thine;
Teach us how to love each other, lift us to the joy divine.
Mortals, join the happy chorus, which the morning stars began;
Father love is reigning o’er us, brother love binds man to man.
Ever singing, march we onward, victors in the midst of strife,
Joyful music leads us Sunward in the triumph song of life.
Henry J. van Dyke

Start each morning with God as you read His Word.  Give praise to our Heavenly Father as He meets the needs of all who ask.  In His word He tells us to "Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened."  Luke 9-10


  1. I HAVE to share with you. That back problem I was having, well, last Sunday God took it over. I had been Fri to the doc & got pain pills & muscle relaxers..took them Fri night, every 4 hrs Sat & it was telling me when the 4hrs were up! Sunday Pastor called for healing, I went forward, God & I talked, I have not taken a pill since.I wake up in the mornings ready to move. Faith + God = Healing Power.
