A Sunday Prayer

God, I don’t have all the answers. God, sometimes I just don’t have a clue what to say or do. The only thing I am sure of is, you know. I don’t want to spend my time trying to figure out things and events that aren’t meant for me to understand. I do want to spend my time getting to know you, who understands everything. Please guide my heart, my mind, and my footsteps in every way. I am grateful  for my life. I am grateful for the opportunity to serve you. And, I am grateful for your plan for me. As long as you have a plan, I will never be lost. I am found in you and I am ever so grateful! Lord I thank you. Make this your prayer today and find your strength in the Lord. He knows everything.

Hey You!

What are you doing?! People are moving on with their life and you are still in the dumps about an old situation. It is time to forgive and move on. I know you have heard it a million times before, not forgiving means they have power over you. You have a choice in some things and you can choose who you allow to affect your life. You were miserable while they were a part of your life and now that that they are no longer a factor, you are still miserable. Something is not adding up. If you keep thinking about them and it brings you down, they are still influencing you. Focus on the direction you are headed, forward. Forgiving them doesn’t mean you agree with what they have done, it just means you are wise enough to realize it is unhealthy to hold on to the pain. It is time to start walking in victory. It is time to be healed and be free. If you are affected by people who are in your life on the regular basis, like family members, pray for them. I am a believer of the power of God through prayer. He can save the unsavable and change the unchangeable. He is God and there is nothing too hard for him. You may not be able to control their actions, but you can certainly control yours. Turn them over to God, pray and believe! Be healed in the name of Jesus and be free from your past. Today is a new day.

Wait “Up On” the Lord

I have said it once and maybe a hundred times. Waiting is not easy. Isaiah 40:31 reminds us that if we wait upon the Lord, he will renew our strength. This lets us know that if we are weary and never feeling rejuvenated, we are just waiting to see something happen, but not necessarily waiting upon the Lord. I like to think that “Up On” means literally up on the rock. I am waiting up on the word. I am waiting up on the Lord. In other words I am planted on a solid rock, and he is the source of my strength. Even if I hit rock bottom, he is that rock. I will never be alone or in a place the Lord is not with me, as long as I wait up on him. Don’t just wait for something to happen in your life. Wait on God to happen. Wait with expectancy and hope. Even when you are in the darkest of nights, his word is a lamp unto your feet and a light unto your path. It is time to stop waiting for anything and time to wait for the only thing, God! Let him renew your weary mind and strengthen your heart. Run on and don’t be weary. Walk and don’t faint. You shall reap in due season. So, I repeat, wait “Up On” the Lord!

I Won’t Complain!

We waste a lot of time time complaining about things we cannot change. Every negative word just kills the situation, even more. Prov 18:21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof. When we realize our negative words don’t make life any better, then we learn to speak life. Yesterday is gone, you can’t do anything to change what happened. Today is a new day so make it count. Change your attitude, change your words, and change the way you see life. Remind yourself that the words you speak have power.

Happy Mother’s Day

Happy-Mothers-Day-Bouquet-Clipart-4

Happy Mother’s Day to all the women who have wiped tears, kissed boo boos, cooked the unwanted vegetables, sat through the practices, cheered at the games, cried at the graduations, prayed at the hospital, cooled the high temperatures, read the bed time stories, ran around the park, picked up the broken pieces…..the list goes on and on. This is your day. Enjoy it. There will never be another mom like you and your children know it. God made you for your special one or many. Happy Mother’s Day!

The Way Things Turn Out

WiwSometimes your situation is not the best, but if you change how you look at it you’d be surprised how good you can feel bout it. You have power over your thoughts, your emotions, and your life feels. Stand on the promises of God and let the worst situations bring out the best in you.
