Thankful = Happy!
“Happy are those who have The God of Israel as their helper, whose hope is in The Lord their God. The Lord lifts the burdens of those bent beneath their loads.” Psalms 146:5-10(NLT). “He heals the brokenhearted, binding up their wounds. He counts the stars and calls them all by name. How great is our Lord! His power is absolute! His understanding is beyond comprehension. The Lord supports the humble. The Lord’s delight is in those who honor Him, those who put their hope in His unfailing love.” Ps. 147. “Happy indeed are those whose God is The Lord.” Be Happy. Rest in Him. I’m praying for you.

God Did It !
“God The Father CHOSE YOU long ago, and The Spirit has MADE YOU HOLY. As a result, you have obeyed Jesus Christ and are cleansed by His Blood…Now we live with a wonderful expectation because Jesus rose from the dead…For God has reserved a priceless inheritance for His children…And God, in His mighty power, will protect you until you receive this salvation, because you are trusting Him…So be truly glad! There is wonderful joy ahead, even though it is necessary for you to endure many trials for a while.” 1Peter 1:2-9 (NLT) “All honor to The God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, for it is by His boundless mercy that God has given us the privilege of being born again!” 1Peter 1:3. God did it all! I’m praying for you
The Production of God.
“Be careful to put into action God’s saving work in your lives, obeying God with deep reverence and fear. For God is working in you, giving you the desire to obey Him and the power to do what pleases Him. Hold tightly to the Word of Life. For God’s way of making us right with Himself depends on faith. As a result, I can really know Christ and experience the mighty power that raised Him from the dead.” Philippians 2:13, 3:9-10. “We are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so that we can do the good things He planned for us long ago.” Ephesians 2:10. “We put no confidence in human effort. Instead, we boast about what Christ Jesus has done for us.” Phil. 3:3(NLT). God continually produces His work in us. Don’t trust in yourself. Depend on Him. I’m praying for you
Come, Dine with Me!
Throughout Scripture God uses bread as a symbol of His intimate presences with us. In the tabernacle, Exodus 25:30, God told Moses “You must always keep the special ‘Bread of The Presence’ on the table before Me”. Luke 22:19″Then Jesus took the bread; and when He thanked God for it He broke it in pieces and gave it to the disciples saying’This is My Body which is broken for you…” The two followers on the road to Emmaus did not know Him until “He took a small loaf of bread, asked God’s blessing on it, broke it, then gave it to them. Suddenly, their eyes were opened and they recognized Him!” Luke 24:30-31. John 6:33 “The true Bread of God is the One who comes down from heaven and gives life to the world. Vs. 47 “I assure you, anyone who believes in Me already has eternal life. Yes, I am the Bread of Life!” God is so intimate with us that He calls us to “Come and Dine”. Then He shows us who He is. He feeds us and sustains us with Himself. He fills us with all He is. Jesus, the life-filling, life-sustaining, ever present Savior. Hallelujah!!! I’m praying for you.
The Racket of Life
Son of man, look with your eyes and hear with your ears, and fix your mind on everything I show you.
Novak Djokovic is the Number One tennis player in the world. After beating Andy Murray at the Shanghai Masters, he told reporters, “A calm mind always wins. Confidence plays a key role for any person on this planet.”1
For Christians, a calm mind comes from having our thoughts fixed on Jesus and our minds stayed on Him (Hebrews 3:1; Isaiah 26:3). Jesus told us to love Him with all our mind (Matthew 22:37). The Bible warns against an “anxious mind” (Luke 12:29) and instructs us to set our minds on “things above” (Colossians 3:2). We’re to be renewed in the spirit of our minds. To be spiritually minded is “life and peace” (Ephesians 4:23; Romans 8:6). As we meditate on God’s Word, the peace of God guards our “hearts and minds through Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:7). 1
Amid the racket of life, a calm mind always wins. Learn to deliberately fix your mind on Jesus and His Word today. Focus on Christ and feed on His Word.
It is a grand thing when the mind becomes calm, when the soul grows strong, when courage increases, when confidence comes, when deep peace and quiet restfulness flow into the soul.
Charles H. Spurgeon
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…

Listen or Drift.
“So we must listen very carefully to the Truth we have heard, or we may drift away.” Hebrews 2:1. We slowly leave God, a little bit at a time. “But Christ, the faithful Son, was in charge of the entire household. And we are God’s household, if we keep up our courage and remain confident in our hope in Christ. That is why the Holy Spirit says, ‘Today you must listen to His voice. Don’t harden your hearts’…” Heb.3:6-8. “For if we are faithful to the end, trusting God just as firmly as when we first believed, we will share in all that belongs to Christ. But never forget the warning, ‘Today you must listen to His voice. Don’t harden your hearts’…” Heb. 3:14-15. For only we who believe can enter His place of rest…’Today you must listen to His voice. Don’t harden you hearts’…There is a special rest still waiting for the people of God.” Heb.4:3-11.(NLT) Don’t Drift, and you will remain strong and confident. Don’t Drift, and you will share with Christ. Don’t Drift, and you will find rest. Listen to the voice of God. Today. I’m praying for you.
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.
