Aimlessly

August 13, 2014 — Leave a comment

As I’m walking my 3 miles at the park today; I saw several people running.  I thought to myself, I wish I could do that. Train and run in a 5 K.  Wow, that would be an accomplishment!

Besides the fact that my lungs would be screaming for air, I physically can’t because I have a bad back and don’t want to risk another injury!

God calls us to run a race.  A race I can run!!

1 Corinthians 9:25-27, NIV, states “Do you know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize?  Run in such a way as to get the prize.  Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training.  They do it to get a crown that will not last; but we do it to get a crown that will last forever.  Therefore I do not run like a man running aimlessly; I do not fight like a man beating the air.  No, I beat my body and make it my slave so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified for the prize.”

Every athlete knows that strict training is essential for success!

As a believer we are called into strict training.  We aren’t to run aimlessly or beat the air.  We have God’s word, prayer, worship, and study to keeps us focused.   Sooooo, we will not be disqualified for the prize.  We continue to build our staying power. ~Deb

Some of my sweetest times spent with The Lord have been while listening to music.  Let’s worship together.  Oh, Glorious Day!   1 Peter 1:3-12

Praise the Father

imageWe are missing our church fellowship this Sunday morning, my poor husband is trying to pass a kidney stone.  Ouch!

That doesn’t mean, however,  that we are missing worship.  As we read His word and listen to praise music, we feel him renewing our strength.

 

Time spent with God is never wasted! ~ Debra

“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 be faint.” (Isaiah 40:31, NIV)

Worship

Singing is a form of worship which speaks to me like no other.  I grew up singing hymns along side my Aunts.  If I close my eyes and listen; I can still hear their beautiful voices as they blend in beautiful harmony…
A wonderful Savior is Jesus my Lord,
A wonderful Savior to me;
He hideth my soul in the cleft of the rock,
Where rivers of pleasure I see.Chorus: He hideth my soul in the cleft of the rock,
That shadows a dry, thirsty land;
He hideth my life in the depths of His love,
And covers me there with His hand,
And covers me there with His hand.
A wonderful Savior is Jesus my Lord,
He taketh my burden away,
He holdeth me up and I shall not be moved,
He giveth me strength as my day.With numberless blessings each moment He crowns,
And filled with His fullness divine,
I sing in my rapture, oh, glory to God!
For such a Redeemer as mine.When clothed with His brightness transported I rise
To meet Him in clouds of the sky,
His perfect salvation, His wonderful love,
I’ll shout with the millions on high.

 “There is a place near me where you may stand on a rock. When my glory passes by, I will put you in a cleft in the rock and cover you with my hand until I have passed by. Then I will remove my hand and you will see my back; but my face must not be seen.” (Exodus 33:21-23,NIV)

God’s provision, priceless! ~Debra

 

Relationship

December 31, 2011 — Leave a comment

As I lay in bed last night praying over my family, I was thinking what do I pray for them for the coming New Year?

Riches, health, peace…as I lay praying and seeking it came to me.  A relationship, more than anything else I would love for my family to have a growing relationship with God. 

A connection, bond, link, rapport!

What a great way to start off the New Year reading God’s word, praying, having quite time and participating in worship.

Read God’s word and mediate on what we read:   Psalms 119:97, 2 Corinthians 10:3-5, Philippians 4:8, and Colossians 3:1-2. 

Spend time alone with God and listen:  Psalm 119:15, 23,46,105, Mark 1:35, I Corinthians 10:11-13, James 5:3.

Prayer and how we should pray:  Luke 11:1-4, Matthew 6:5-13, 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18, John 16:23, 26-27.  

Worship: Hebrews 10:24-25, Hebrews 12:28, Psalms 134:2 

I pray for you and yours a relationship with our God, our creator! ~Deb
