A David Psalm
1-3 God, my shepherd! I don’t need a thing.
You have bedded me down in lush meadows,
you find me quiet pools to drink from.
True to your word,
you let me catch my breath
and send me in the right direction.
4 Even when the way goes through
I’m not afraid
when you walk at my side.
Your trusty shepherd’s crook
makes me feel secure.
5 You serve me a six-course dinner
right in front of my enemies.
You revive my drooping head;
my cup brims with blessing.
6 Your beauty and love chase after me
every day of my life.
I’m back home in the house of God
for the rest of my life.”
My Dad is in the arms of Jesus. He left on Thursday. It was my privilege to watch my parents go through death valley and depend completely on this promise. This is from a translation called “The Message” Dad quoted this from the King James version. As Dad started slipping from us, my Mom knew that when she couldn’t talk to Dad that Jesus was. My Dad is proof that God always,always, always answers prayer. Hallelujah, What A Savior!!!! I’m praying for you. Thank you for praying for me and my family.
I talk to God always. It’s as if He’s my friend, Dad and my God. Mostly we talk of simple things that should not cause worry. But this week I have been “awash in fear”. They r trying to take my granddaughters away. The God showed me Gideon. My heart was filled with the fact that he had been given the Holy Spirit. Only our savior can push out all the fear and fill u with Jesus
Heart’s Hear! Psalms 27:8a “My heart has heard…” God speaks to our hearts. What does God say? Ps. 27:8a “Come and talk with Me”. God asks us to come and talk. No condemnation. No requirement. Just talk! What does YOUR heart say? Ps. 27:8b “And my heart responds ‘Lord, I’m coming!!” Ps. 26:3 “For I am constantly aware of your unfailing love” Ps. 31:7 “I am overcome with joy because of your unfailing love.” Ps. 33:22 “Let your unfailing love surround us Lord for our hope is in you alone.”. The voice of the Lord, Ps. 29, “echoes above the sea, is full of power, splits the cedars, strikes with lightening bolts, shakes the desert and strips the forest bear. ” But God speaks to our hearts and our hearts hear Him. LORD, I’M COMING!!!
YOU WIN!!!!! that’s right!!! The entire Bible was written so that we can know this. 1John 2:12″ I write…because your sins are forgiven you for His Name sake.”. God forgave us because He wants us not because we deserve it. Vs. 13″ I write…because you have known Him who is from the beginning.” He saved us and we know the Creator personally. God is our father. Vs. 14″ I write…because YOU are strong and the Word of God lives in you and you have overcome the wicked one”. #1 YOU are saved because GOD WANTS YOU. #2 YOU know GOD. #3a-YOU are strong. 3b-the Word of God LIVES IN YOU. 3c- YOU HAVE BEAT SATAN!!!! You have already beat Satan. He may try to destroy u but YOU WIN!!!! Remember Jesus lives in you. He is your strength. His word lives in you. You have already overcome Satan. Hold your head high. Look to the Savior. Nothing can defeat you. JESUS MAKES US THE CHAMPIONS OF THE WORLD!!!!! I’m always praying for u. Live like u are the child of THE King. You Win!
Scripture From A Mother’s Heart
Don’t ever lose your grip on
Love and Loyalty.
Tie them around your neck;
Carve their initials on your heart.
Trust God from the
Bottom of your heart.
Don’t try to figure out
everything on your own.
Listen for God’s voice
In everything you do,
Every where you go.
For God alone made it possible
For you to be in Christ Jesus.
Right now there are three things
That you must do:
Trust Steadily in God
And the best of these is Love.
Parents can provide their son
With an inheritance of
Houses and wealth,
But only the Lord can provide
An understanding wife.
So go after a life of love
As if your life depended on it-
Because it does.
And give yourself to the
Precious gift that
God has given you.
Happy? Are you kidding? Psalms 84:12″O Lord Almighty, HAPPY are those who trust in you.” Ps.84:5-7″HAPPY are those who are strong in The Lord, who set their MINDS on a pilgrimage…When they walk through the Valley if Weeping, it will become a place of refreshing springs, where pools of blessings collect after the rains! They will continue to grow strong, and each of them will appear before God.” Ps.94:17-19 “Unless The Lord had helped me, I would soon have died. I cried out ‘I’m slipping’ and your unfailing love, O Lord, supported me. When doubts filled my MIND, your comfort gave me renewed hope and CHEER.” 2 Thessalonians 2:13-16 “We are thankful that God CHOSE YOU…to experience salvation, a salvation that came through the Spirit who MAKES YOU HOLY and by your belief in the truth, He called you to salvation…Now you can share in the glory of our Lord Jesus. Stand firm and keep a strong grip. May our Lord Jesus Christ and God our Father, who loved us…comfort your hearts and give you strength.” “Your unfailing love is better for me than life itself!” Ps.63:3. Now that’s happiness. I’m so praying for you.
God SPOKE beauty and life into existence. His Spoken word is where beauty resides. Written for us. So hold on to God’s Word,Proverbs 6:22-22…”always in your heart. Tie them around your neck like a scarf. Whenever you walk…they will lead you. When you sleep…they will protect you. When you wake up…they will SPEAK to you.”3:21-26 “Hang on to them! For they will fill you with life and bring honor and respect. They will keep you safe on your way and keep your feet from stumbling.” 4:20-23 “Pay attention! Don’t lose sight of my words. Let them penetrate deep within your heart for they will bring LIFE and RADIANCE to anyone who discovers their meaning.”. God spoke and beauty covered the earth. God spoke and beauty shines in art. God spoke and beauty flows through music. God spoke and in people beauty Radiates. BEAUTY GLOWS. Pro.2:6 “For the Lord grants wisdom FROM HIS MOUTH!” Learn His Word and GLOW! Worship our Savior today. I’m praying for you.
What’s going on here? Is God out to lunch? Psalms 73:11. This is the questions Asaph had. Vs.1 “No doubt about it! God is good-but I nearly missed it I was looking the other way. Vs. 11-14 ” Nobody’s tending the store. The wicked get by with everything… I’ve been stupid to play by the rules.” Vs. 20 “Then in the blink of an eye, disaster!! A blind curve in the darkness, and-NIGHTMARE!” Vs. 21-28 ” When I was beleaguered and bitter, I was totally ignorant and dumb in your presence. But I’M STILL IN YOUR PRESENCE. You have taken my hand. You wisely and tenderly lead me and then you bless me. When my skin sags and my bones get brittle, GOD IS ROCK-FIRM and FAITHFUL! God is the strength of my heart.” Life sometimes seems unfair and is hard. Remember. Remember that God is FAITHFUL. You are in HIS presence even when you can’t see him. Just like Asaph. His arms are wrapped around you. Praise God that he loves us unconditionally!!!! I’m praying for you.
