Has your world ever been turned so upside down that all you could do was cry out to God?  Mine has-many times. Honestly, I just don’t know what I would have done if I couldn’t have called on Him.  I’ve been so upset that I couldn’t even put words to my prayer…all I could do was call out His Holy Name!  And, I knew He was the only one Who could help.

                  Love Heart, if you don’t have an intimate relationship with Jesus, today might be the day for you to start one.  He’s waiting!  He’s not somewhere way out in the universe and untouchable.  He’s got His full attention turned toward you, always…and He’s waiting!  In John 14:6 Jesus Himself says, “I am the way and the truth and the life.  No one comes to the Father except through me.”  He is faithful.  You will not be disappointed!

Who Is Your God?

April 24, 2017 — Leave a comment

Many of you may already know the Savior, Jesus Christ, while others of you may be seeking Him. For some of you, these may be the first words you are hearing about the One True God.  Hear this. Wherever you are in your quest to know God, Debra and I are praying for you.

Recently I heard a testimony about a woman who talked about “her idol.” It brought this scripture to mind.

Habakkuk 2:18-20 (NIV) 18 “Of what value is an idol carved by a craftsman? Or an image that teaches lies? For the one who makes it trusts in his own creation; he makes idols that cannot speak. 19 Woe to him who says to wood, ‘Come to life!’ Or to lifeless stone, ‘Wake up!’ Can it give guidance? It is covered with gold and silver; there is no breath in it.” 20 The LORD is in his holy temple; let all the earth be silent before him.

Love Heart, these are not my words.  They are taken from the Holy Bible.  Today, if you are counting on something made by man to give you guidance, whether it’s made of stone or wood or gold, please reconsider.  Seek God and find faith in Him and Him alone.  Gwen~

A Really Bad Day!

               Have you had a really bad day?  I mean, really bad.  You wanted to scream because you were so frustrated.  You were rude to your own family! It seems like those days come around much too often.  Grrr.

Here’s the silver lining to that dark cloud:

Because of the LORD’s great love we are not consumed,
for his compassions never fail.
They are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness. Lamentations 3:22-23(NIV)

               Wow!  Because of His great love, I wasn’t consumed.  Because of His great love, I can try again tomorrow.  Because of His great love, there is a tomorrow.  Gwen~

Philippians 3:13-14 No, dear brothers and sisters, I am still not all I should be, but I am focusing all my energies on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, I strain to reach the end of the race and receive the prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us up to heaven. (NLT)

2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. (NKJV)

Hebrews 12:10-11 Our fathers disciplined us for a little while as they thought best; but God disciplines us for our good, that we may share in his holiness. No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it. (NIV)

Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you,” says the LORD. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. (NLT)

2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. (NKJV)

1 Peter 1:3 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. (NIV)

Satan would have us to dwell on our past; our failures…but Christ can set us FREE!~Debra
