The Lord Hears YOU!

In the morning, LORD, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait expectantly.
Psalm 5:3

Life is a journey. A journey through the good, the bad, the ugly, and the beautiful. In the midst of fear and among the constant threat of death, David continued to sing and glorify the Lord. This was not because he saw the end to the storm, and at many times did not see a way out of the darkness that surrounded him. No, he sang and glorified the Lord for he knew that the Lord would sustain him, uphold him in his right hand, protect him when he was vulnerable, fill him when he was hungry, and guide him when he was lost. He praised God because he trusted God to keep hold of him through the storm and bring him out with life and love abounding!

Wherever you are today, I challenge you to seek God, listen to his voice, and praise him even when you don’t feel like it. Despite the circumstances, God is leading you to a future filled with hope (Jeremiah 29:11). He is with you now and will be with you always, a light to your path, leading you to mercy, grace, forgiveness, healing, and righteousness. Draw near to Him and He will draw near to you (James 4:7-8, Hebrews 10:22-25). Be still and know he is God and praise him continually (Psalm 46:10, Hebrews 13:15).

Rest my friends in the peace that is beyond understanding and walk in the light, especially when darkness surrounds, for there is where God will meet you! Blessings and love as you continue your journey with God! ❤

You, God, are my God, earnestly I seek you;
I thirst for you, my whole being longs for you,
in a dry and parched land where there is no water.
I have seen you in the sanctuary and beheld your power and your glory.
Because your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you.
I will praise you as long as I live, and in your name I will lift up my hands.
I will be fully satisfied as with the richest of foods; with singing lips my mouth will praise you.
On my bed I remember you; I think of you through the watches of the night.
Because you are my help, I sing in the shadow of your wings.
I cling to you; your right hand upholds me.
Psalm 63:1-8

So Good to Me ~ Dara Maclean

You intended to harm me,
but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done,
the saving of many lives.
~ Genesis 50:20

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD,
“plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
~ Jeremiah 29:11

Let it Go!! Trust!!

The steadfast of mind You will keep in perfect peace,
Because he trusts in You. Trust in the LORD forever,
For in GOD the LORD, we have an everlasting Rock.
~ Isaiah 26:3-4

conquer

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything
by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving
let your requests be made known to God.
And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension,
will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
~ Philippians 4:6-7

In times where your mind wanders and you feel your thoughts drifting to negativity or areas of darkness and fear, bring them captive to the Lord. Bring them into His presence, surrendering them, and letting God bring you back to His light and peace. Yes, this is a hard process, but the more frequently you do it, the easier it becomes. When you give it all to God, He promises to bring you peace and comfort, to lead you in the path everlasting. That doesn’t mean the pain will go away or the circumstances will change in an instant, but it does mean that God will be with you through them, reminding you that He is bigger than anything you may face, that He is stronger than the challenges, that He knows the direction you must go to achieve His perfection! Let go and let God! All my love, and as you go through your day, may you find your heart and mind focused on the glory and beauty of God!

Seek and You Will Find!

You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.
~ Jeremiah 29:13

Seek_and_You_Shall_Findsm

But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness,
and all these things will be added to you.
“So do not worry about tomorrow;
for tomorrow will care for itself.
Each day has enough trouble of its own.
~ Matthew 6:33-34

IF….

If you seek Me, you will find Me
If you ask, I will give to you freely
If you knock, the door will be opened to you
If you desire, I will be in all that you do
If you examine, My truth you will find
If you trust, know that you will be refined
If you follow, my abundant blessings will flow
If you listen, you will hear Me wherever you go
If you challenge, you will rise above
If you pursue, you will feel My love
If you pray, My answer you will receive
If you claim, My freedom I will give
If you serve, in life you will rejoice
If you rest, you will hear My quiet voice
If you praise, a cheerful heart you will possess
If you love, you will find true happiness
If you hope, deep joy you will develop
If you surrender, My peace will envelop

All my love and may you seek God first in all that you do, for when He is the center of your life, all else falls into place.  May the God of peace, mercy, and grace hold you in His arms now and always!  ❤

God is Greater

For I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord,
plans to prosper you not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
Jeremiah 29:11

grace

God is greater
Larger than the obstacles you face
He knows your past and your sins
Yet offers you limitless grace

Hold tight to His truths
For in His arms you can stand
Know He is with you
Guiding you with His mighty hand

He sees your pain and shame
His heart bleeds for you
Let it go and surrender
For His promises will see you through

May the obstacles you face be merely a speck in the scheme of life, and may you always know that God is with you through it all, with a promise to bring you good, to prosper you, to bless you abundantly more than you can ever imagine! May this new year bring peace and joy despite the storms that rage around or in you!

All my love ❤
