You Must Watch........ You Will Be Amazed

This is about 8 minutes long......... I know that is a long time to just sit and watch but I promise you, you will not be disappointed........... The Father God is always letting us know that HE is the God of the Universe but HE is the God of US.............. HE created us and HE always leaves HIS mark!!! Please listen.................

Open My Eyes

The real act of discovery is not in finding new lands, but in seeing with new eyes.

Marcel Proust

.

2Ki 6:15
And when the servant of the man of God was risen early, and gone forth, behold, an host compassed the city both with horses and chariots. And his servant said unto him, Alas, my master! how shall we do?

2Ki 6:16
And he answered, Fear not: for they that [be] with us [are] more than they that [be] with them.

2Ki 6:17
And Elisha prayed, and said, LORD, I pray thee, open his eyes, that he may see. And the LORD opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw: and, behold, the mountain [was] full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha.



Open our eyes Lord that we might see that we are surrounded by a host of angles...... Open our eyes Lord and let us see that we are more than conquerors.


Rom 8:37
Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.



In Christ

What is Taking Me So Long???????

This is a powerful quote ladies...... Do not despise small beginnings as God is always preparing ...... Expect to be used of God..........


It takes a lifetime to prepare a sermon because it takes a lifetime to prepare a man of God.

Arthur Wood

I will no longer complain that it took God so long to get me to the place I am today......... I have been a work in progress...... and as long as I draw breath........ He will continue to prepare me..


In Christ

He Looks At Me

Psalm 40:1
I waited patiently for the Lord to help me, and he turned to me and heard my cry.

.. I got this scripture in one of the email that Denise over at Shorty Bears Place sends and it struck me this morning that we we cry out to the Lord, He turns His eyes toward us.............. I do not read any other translation than the King James but I have to admit that when reading the other translations on this scripture I do like how this one reads.............. How awesome to think that the God of the Universe turns and looks my way when I cry out His name............ I need to cry out His name more often.............................

I have heard this before and have it written in my bible and it is always worth repeating:
Mercy is when we don’t get what we deserve.
Justice is when we get what we do deserve
Grace is when we get what we do not deserve.

I Said I Never Would

......I did something yesterday that I said I would never do.......... I have thought about it several years but I just did not feel the need....... I do not know what caused me to choose this year but I did........ I thought that I would have some emotional feeling going there but I did not ......... I was quite at easy and found that I was glad that I had come........... The flowers so needed attention and I came prepared with some pretty flowers from my stash......... I always have a stash................ You see....... I had not been to the place where we laid my grandmother since that day in 1996. When we put her there I was so broken hearted as I loved my grandmother so... I grieved for weeks and weeks and I miss her still today......... She was my mentor and my life coach. She taught me so much about life and she just loved me......... You just knew that she loved you..........

....... She taught me to cook and to sew and she is the reason that I love to dig in the dirt........... She was always in the garden growing something ......

..........She was a simple woman if terms of things and money........ but she was a woman rich in wisdom and life skills........ She was never critical and never judgemental..........through all my trouble in life she always had a good word to say and always encouraged me to trust in the Lord and He would guide my life........... She was a strong woman of faith and the foundation that she laid for me remains to this day.......

......... She was 99 when she went to be with the Lord just 8 months short of her 100th birthday...
......... I have not been back to the place where we laid her since that day in 1996 ...... but something took me there yesterday............... I thought that it would affect me more than it did..... I stood for a minute over the marker and then sat and put a few yellow flowers in her metal vase............ You see...... I so miss Ida Potts but she is not there....... she has never been there...... When she left that day she was immediately went to be with the Father....... We only laid her body there to be raised at the sound of the trumpet........... Soooooooo today I stood over a place where we laid her body................. but

This is how I remember her............. and this is who I will see again when the trumpet sounds...
and.......... I so enjoyed giving her some pretty flowers.......... I will go back often..........
Memorial Day ......... a day to remember those that have gone before......... We all have loved ones to remember........... and we all have loved ones that we will be united with one day...
hugs

Stretch Your Faith

I came across this quote this morning in an email someone sent.......... We can apply it to our faith...... Go on and believe................

A mind once stretched by a new idea never regains its original dimensions.
