Guide Me, Lord

guide me Lord

Good Morning my family in Christ.

As many of you know I have recently been faced with some health issues. Those health issues have caused me to have to stop doing the things I love the most in life. I have always loved to teach and to sing for the Lord but with my health issues caused by the Menieres’ disease I have been forced to stop teaching Sunday School at least for awhile and it is becoming more and more difficult to be among the music without becoming extremely sick. Due to the changes I have been faced with I have become more and more depressed at times and faced with a feeling of just wanting to give up. I know you are probably thinking where is your faith? God does not want you giving up and you are right. God does not want us to give up. It is our faith in the Lord that keeps us pushing on through the hard times in life.

In the mist of all the emotional feelings I have been dealing with lately, the doubts, anger, extreme sadness, the wondering what my life from here on is to be like if God chooses not to heal me from this horrible disease, I have come to realize God has a plan for my life. I may not understand why these things are happening to me but I have to trust that God is in control and He still has a plan for my life. The Lord has brought Paul to my mind many times recently, as we know from the Word Paul was faced with some type of affliction. (II Corinthians 12:7-10) Paul said, “I will glory in my infirmities that the power of Christ may rest upon me.” Paul had to come to the point where he said, “I am content in whatever state I am in and I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” (Philippians 4:11-13) I also want to have that same faith. I am praying everyday for the Lord to guide me in whatever direction He has for me. I may not be able to do the things I am use to do but I know with the Lord’s guidance I can find the path He now has for me.

I am sharing these feeling with you because I know there are so many others out there facing issues that test their faith. It is not always easy to talk about the things that trouble us deeply and I know for myself I hate to admit my weaknesses. Maybe by talking about some of the troubles and weaknesses I face I can help someone else in their journey and help myself when I am feeling weak.

I want to encourage any of you who are facing challenges in life, whether they are health issues, personal issues, financial issues, please know God is in control if we will just put our trust in Him He will guide us in the right direction. We may not understand and we may ask why in our weakest moments. Just know God hears, He feels our pain, He knows our sorrows. Because He loves us our pain and sorrow is also His pain and sorrow. In Him we can always put our trust for He is always working things out to our good.

Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

Psalms 32:8 I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye.

Jeremiah 29:11-13 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you. And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.

Heavenly Father, We come to You thanking You for our many blessings You have so freely given us. We thank You for Your grace and love, but most of all for Your Son, Jesus Christ, whom You sent to this earth to be a sacrifice and a Savior to us all. Lord, we come to You in our weakness asking You to strengthen us and to guide us on whatever path You have put us on. Help us Lord to find our path and purpose in life and help us to always trust You in whatever state we are in. Help us to find comfort in our hearts in knowing we are never alone, that You are always with us, loving us and guiding us. Remember all those who are sick and hurting today Lord. Comfort them as only You can. We love you Lord and we give You the praise, the honor and glory that is only Yours. We ask these things in the name of Jesus Christ, our Savior. Amen and Amen!

God Bless each of you. Love in Christ! Jeanette

Words In Red

words in red 06-26-2019

The Lord has so much compassion for those who are lost and troubled. He has compassion on those who are physically sick but He also has compassion for those who are spiritually sick. We as humans, even though we are Christians, at times think we are so much better than those we see around us in the world. Yet the Lord in all His grace and mercy said He did not come to save the righteous (self-righteous) but to bring those lost unto the Father. Let us pray that the Lord put that same merciful heart within us so we can lead others to Christ who is the healer of all things.

Father, We come humbly before You asking You to heal our hearts of all self righteousness and instill within us a heart of love and compassion for those who are without you. Father, let Your love go forth through each of us so those lost and hurting around us can know You through our love and compassion for them. Thank You for Your mercy to us. Be with us and guide all the days of our lives. In Jesus Precious Name. Amen

Teach me Lord!

God Does Not Bless What His Word Forbids

God does not bless what his word forbids

Secret sin shall be revealed. No matter how much or how many times we try to hide the sins we do in darkness (secret) God will at some point bring them to light and they will be know. We can think something we are doing is not a sin but if we are hiding it from others then we know in our heart it is sin. The bible says no sin shall enter into the kingdom of God. Luke 8:17: “For nothing is secret, that shall not be made manifest; neither anything hid, that shall not be known and come abroad.” We cannot blame others for our sins, our sin is our sin no one else is to blame. We make the choice to sin and we are the ones who will give an answer for it. Revelation 21:27, “And there shall in no wise enter into it anything that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb’s book of life.” When we have a weakness (a sin) we find ourselves giving into we need to become accountable first to God by admitting our sin, repenting and asking Him to clean up our heart. Luke 8: 14-15, “And that which fell among thorns are they, which, when they have heard, go forth, and are choked with cares and riches and pleasures of this life, and bring no fruit to perfection. (Sin destroys our fruit) But that on the good ground are they, which in an honest and good heart, having heard the word, keep it, and bring forth fruit with patience.:” God will only bless those who have a good honest heart that are keeping His Word.

Once we admit our sin and ask the Lord to help us we then need to find a Christian person we can trust who we can become accountable to who will pray with us and help us overcome our weakness, only then will we find the strength to overcome those secret sins.

Accepted By Grace

Hello, my name is Jeanette, I live in a small country community on a farm that belonged to my great grandmother. I am a wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother. I love my family with all my heart but more than that I love my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. He is not just my Savior, He is my best friend, the one I know I can go to with any problem no matter what time of the day or night. My greatest desire is to show others just how special His love is and to share with them the peace and joy He brings to my days. I want other to realize they to can find that same peace and joy in His love for them. His love is a special love. It is freely given to all. He loves each of us the same no matter what our past has been. We all are Accepted By Grace through Our Heavenly Father’s unfailing Love and Mercy for us.

I love sharing the Word of God with others. I love art and I love to share the beauty of God’s creation through my artwork. I often write of the many happy memories I have of growing up in the country with two wonderful Christian parents. I hope you are inspired and blessed by my posts. Please share them as often as you want as all is here to glorify our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Please feel free to post prayer request and let me know by posting comments if you enjoy this site.

Thank You and May God Bless You Always!! Jeanette

 

We Are Overcomers

flowers 4

Do you ever dwell on your past or allow the things you have done in your past to cause you to feel you can’t do what the Lord has planned for you?

Often times the devil wants to consistently remind us of our shortcoming so we feel we cannot live for the Lord the way we want to. This is a lie of satan the Word of God says we as believers of Christ are already overcomers.

Revelations 2:26 it says “And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations:”

Revelations 3:21 says “To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.”

I John 5:4-5 says “For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?”

Believe and be an overcomer!

God’s Love

Jeremiah 31 3.JPG

God’s Love
I hear the echo across the hills
The voice of our Savior quiet and still
He whispers across the meadows green
The Joys of such we have never seen

He tells a story of a Love oh so real
A Love your heart can forever feel
This Love is only found in His Holy presence
Its glow fills your heart with its glorious brilliance

A love such as this is hard to comprehend
For our hurts and sorrows it will always mend
It is send from the Father above you see
For all mankind including you and me

This Love is kind, full of Mercy and Grace
And with it we can with joy our tomorrows face
It fills our hearts with a peace so sweet to behold
As within us a new heart it will shape and mold

So come rest in the safety of this love you can trust
For Christ’s love is not driven by worldly lust
His love is a never ending pure love
That is only found through the Father above

So come feel this peace from our Lord above
Where you will be wrapped in His eternal love
For in His tender love you can forever rest
Safe and secure where you are eternally blest

“The LORD hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee.”

Through the Mist

mist of the storm

Through the Mist

When the storms of life are raging

And our future we cannot see

The peace for which we are searching

Can only be found on bended knee

 

When troubles threaten to overflow

The waves of the sea pound our shore

God sends His grace so we may know

He is always standing at our door

 

When we are faced with heartache

Sorrows seem more than we can bear

God sends His angels to ease the ache

To show us He will always care

 

In the Lord we can always put our trust

For our hope is in His amazing love

So from the worries of life shake off the dust

And soar through the mist on the wings of a dove
