The Gift of Prayer!

I thank the Lord that I can pray
And ask for Him to show the way,
To bring before His royal throne
The needs there are among His own.
When nothing else seems right to do
I know it’s best to pray for you.
And I do!

Prayer is indeed a gift and also a
responsibility we share.

By helping each other with your troubles,
you truly obey the law of Christ.
Galatians 6:2

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything
by prayer and supplication, with thanks
giving, let your requests be made known to
God. Philippians 4:6

Speaking For God!

I asked my Lord for words to speak
To share His love for those who seek.
He filled my heart with a song to sing
Of the awesomeness of Christ my King.
And no matter where my feet may go
There is waiting ground for seeds to sow.
There are hungry hearts and needy souls
Who need a touch from one who knows;
There’s a Savior with such love for them
And blessings that come from knowing Him.
Their lives will never be the same
When they reach out and call His Name.

While I live will I praise the Lord: I will
sing praises unto my God while I have any being.
Psalm 146:2

Praise the Lord, because He alone is great. He is
more wonderful than heaven and earth. Praise the
Lord!
Psalm 148:13

Worry Not!

Oh, to live a life so free
To worry not, to be carefree
To “give it up”, to “let it go”
To say goodbye to every woe!
I know I can, it’s up to me
I want to be worry free,
To dance and sing with not a care
With only good things everywhere!
And if it can’t be just that way
Even if for just one day,
Let me package all my fears
And send them off to the One who hears!

“Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden,
and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and
learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and
you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy
and My burden is light.”
Matthew 11:28-30

Trust God, not man!

Oh, that man would trust in God
For all He can provide,
To receive His many blessings
We should be right by His side.
But no, we turn away from Him
And trust what isn’t true,
Because we doubt Him and His Word
We miss His best for me and you!

Jesus said, “So do not worry, saying,
‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we
drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the
pagans run after all these things, and
your heavenly Father knows that you need
them. But seek first His kingdom and His
righteousness, and all these things will be
given to you as well.”
Matthew 6:31-33

It is Winter where I live!

What could be prettier
On a cold winter day,
Than new fallen snow
Making a lovely display?
The touch of God’s hand
Making everything white,
And making all I can see
Such a wondrous delight!

God made the earth by His power;
He founded the world by His wisdom
and stretched out the heavens by His
understanding.
Jeremiah 10:12

The earth is the Lord’s, and all its
fullness, The world and those who dwell therein.
Psalm 24:1

All Your works shall praise You, O Lord,
And Your saints shall bless You.
Psalm 145:10

I have a thought!

Why would our great God – the Giver of life, the One we ask to bless our nation, our economy, our success, our safety – deny His own commandment, His own Word, His truth?

In other words, why would a nation that supports, promotes and accepts abortion expect God’s blessings with the economy or in any area?

Something to think about. I do – often!

The Spirit of God has made me; the breath of the Almighty gives me life.
Job 33:4

Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart.
Jeremiah 1:5

You shall not murder. Exodus 20:13

But…If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify
us from all unrighteousness.
1 John 1:9

God creates beauty!

I watched the sun on the snow today
Glistening and shining all through the day.
I said, “Isn’t God just so good and so great?
His awesome power to form and create!”
All that is seen and no matter where;
Our wonderful God
Has such beauty to share.

May the glory of the Lord endure forever;
may the Lord rejoice in His works
…Praise the Lord, O my soul.
Praise the Lord.
Psalm 104:31, 35b

Open our hearts!

God, open our hearts and open our ears
To all that You have for us in this year.
Help us to focus on You and Your Word
To apply in our lives that which we’ve heard.
Give us new strength to carry us through
And help us be bold to tell others of You.

Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer. Psalm 19:14
The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise. Proverbs 11:30
