God Knows All

There isn’t a secret
God doesn’t know
Nothing is hidden
We know this is so.
Out of the darkness
And into the light
The truth is exposed
As His power shines bright.
Some like deceit
And some prefer lies
But God speaks to hearts
And God opens eyes.
He knows the time
When all will be clear
And He will make known
The lies that we fear.

By mercy and truth iniquity is
purged: and by the fear of the Lord
men depart from evil. Proverbs 16:6

Blessed is the man that makes the Lord
his trust, and respects not the proud, nor
such as turn aside to lies. Psalm 40:4

God Reigns!

Another round of snow
As Winter winds still blow!

The cold, white view I see
Brings joy and peace to me!

No matter clouds or sun
The season or the sky
God is reigning over all
Including you and I!

The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of His hands. Psalm 19:1

Change!

Change is coming around the bend
America as we know it will come to an end.
We should have seen it, we should have known
But we were sleeping and now moan and groan.
We grieve the loss of what once was great
Our land of freedom from state to state.
All that men died for, for our liberty
Is being destroyed for you and for me.
Anger and sadness are frustrations to bear
Will we again include God, again turn to prayer?
He is the answer as He always has been
He holds our future and over evil will win.
But life will be bumpy, we’re in for a ride
Midst confusion and chaos let Him be our Guide.
How long we will last remains to be seen
But God’s in His heaven knowing what it all means!

Seek the Lord while He may be found; call on Him
while He is near. Isaiah 55:6

He knows all!

Lord, You know all
What holds us up, what makes us fall.
You know this and You know that
You know what’s fiction and what is fact.
You know the how, the when and where
And why You want for us to care.
You teach us how we can discern;
To stay on top of what we learn.
And then You guide us as we pray
To seek Your help from day to day.

This is a prayer as I yield my anger and concern
re:what is happening in and to our nation as the
enemy attempts to destroy us from within. We
need to pray more than ever – we need God’s
help as much as ever!

God is our protection and our strength. He always
helps in times of trouble. Psalm 46:1

Fools say to themselves, “There is no God.” Fools
are evil and do terrible things; none of them does
anything good. Psalm 53:1

Everyone who wants to live as God desires, in
Christ Jesus, will be hurt. But people who are evil and
cheat others will go from bad to worse. They will fool
others, but they also will be fooling themselves.
2 Timothy 3:12-13

Dear friends, since you already know about this, be
careful. Do not let those evil people lead you away
by the wrong they do. Be careful so you will not fall
from your strong faith. But grow in the grace and know-
ledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Glory be to
Him now and forever! Amen. 2 Peter 3:17-18

I remember!

I remember when…
To have honor was honorable
To have integrity was preferable
To do what was right was good
To take responsibility was expected
To be dependable was also expected
…where all of the above was appreciated
and honored with positions of leadership.

But now I see…
To be dishonorable is accepted
To be dishonest is expected
To do what is wrong is now right
To be irresponsible results in rewards
To be corrupt, immoral and unethical
has become steps to achievement
…where all of the above are ways to take
positions of leadership!

But God says…”He who pursues righteousness
and love finds life, prosperity and honor.”
Proverbs 21:21

“The integrity of the upright guides them, but
the unfaithful are destroyed by their duplicity.”
Proverbs 11:3

“It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to
trust in man.”
Psalm 118:8

“The Lord guides the humble in what is right
and teaches them His way.”
Psalm 25:9

“Blessed are they whose ways are blameless,
who walk according to the law of the Lord.”
Psalm 119:1

God Has A Plan!

Who am I and who are you?
Why are we here and what do we do?
God put us here and knows who we are,
He knows our minds and looks into our heart.
Is He involved in our lives every day?
Does He see what we do and care what we say?
I believe it is true that God has a plan,
For every woman and child and man…

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares
the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you,
plans to give you hope and a future.”
Jeremiah 29:11
