Be Still and Know

“He says, Be still, and know that I am God;

I will be exalted among the nations,

I will be exalted in the earth.

The Lord Almighty is with us;

the God of Jacob is our fortress.”

Psalm 46: 10, 11

Thank you God that you are our fortress!

And that we don’t have to live in fear, even when considering our current events.

Shalom

100_1289

Shalom is a Hebrew word, that means much more than the ceasing of activity.

The essence of the word contains a sense of wholeness, of well being, of internal calmness.

So when someone uses the word Shalom is it a powerful blessing!

And it shows us much more of the peace, God has always intended for us.

Shalom!

Soaring on Wings Like Eagles

20170628_172207

“…but those who hope in the Lord

will renew their strength.

They will soar on wings

like eagles;

they will run and not grow weary,

they will walk

and not be faint.”

Isaiah 40: 30, 31

Note: The word for hope here is not a passive term, as in waiting for a bus. It is an active word, as in seeking and trusting in.

I believe this is the essential part of having faith.

An Offering

20170503_161259

This blog and these posts are an offering. Before I ever began, I gave it all to the Lord, and it was really a step of faith. Faith blogs are never the most popular, and that’s because of our world becoming increasingly secular.

But having said all that, it does appear that someone is manipulating this site and perhaps even scaring people away. Are there trolls? Probably. Are they Russian hackers?? I doubt it! Lol.

Think it couldn’t happen here? Simply look up Psalm 29:11, on my site. The difference of people being involved in March of this year, and now is remarkable.

One thing trolls do not understand though, is the concept of offering. If God blesses these posts – great. And if not that’s OK. It is in His hands. I will keep posting.

Heavenly Father I trust in You, and I ask that you would continue to guide me with this site. Show me how it should be done. I give this all to you, once again. In Christ’s name, amen.

Walking with You

100_1584As the evening sky turns a darker blue,

I’m blessed my God, that I can walk with You.

Direct my prayers tonight, and strengthen me.

Forgive me for being so cynical,

bring peace into the circumstances

I cannot control.

I trust in You, Lord God Almighty.

I’m so glad

that I can walk with you.

Amen.
