The Love of the Lord ~ Inspired by Morning and Evening written by Spurgeon

As for man, his days are like grass;
As a flower of the field, so he flourishes.
When the wind has passed over it, it is no more,
And its place acknowledges it no longer.
But the loving kindness of the LORD is from everlasting
To everlasting on those who fear Him,
And His righteousness to children’s children,
To those who keep His covenant
And remember His precepts to do them.
~ Psalm 103:15-18 ~

Throughout your life, it is easy to look back and ponder all the experiences you have been through–The good times and the bad. The joyful times and the sorrow filled times. The times you had an abundance of blessings and the times where life seemed void of any necessity. No matter the experiences, God has always been there, gently speaking His life into your heart and soul, surrounding you with His never-ending love and guiding you through every walk of life, be it the wilderness moments or those in green pastures.

Take comfort in knowing that God’s grace has been sufficient throughout your life. Look back in remembrance of His love for you and all that He has done to make the you beautiful, strong, and courageous person you are today.

As Spurgeon stated so eloquently:

” ‘For I am persuaded, that neither death;
nor life, nor angels, nor principalities,
nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature,
shall be able to separate us from the love of God,
which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.’
Now, soul, is not thy love refreshed?
Does not this make thee love Jesus?
Doth not a flight through illimitable plains
of the ether of love inflame thy heart and compel thee
to delight thyself in the Lord thy God?
Surely as we meditate on ‘the love of the Lord,’
our hearts burn within us,
and we long to love him more.”

May you feel the Love of God from now into eternity, knowing that he holds you always in the palm of his hand! All my love ❤

Good morning—Be still!

As the rain and the snow come down from heaven
and do not return to it without watering the earth
and making it bud and flourish,
so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater,
so is my word that goes out from my mouth:
It will not return empty,
but will accomplish what I desire
and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.
~ Isaiah 55:10-11 ~

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation,
by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding
will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
~ Philippians 4:6-7 ~

God’s way is higher and his knowledge is deeper than yours. He knows the plan and path you should be on and is constantly working things out so that his will can be done in your life. Give thanks for the life and breath you have this morning and cling tightly to the knowledge that God hears your prayers and knows your needs. Trust in him midst the trials and tribulations of your life, knowing that the he is making all things come together for your good. You may not feel his presence, but press on, knowing that he is with you every step of the way, guiding you to eternal perfection.

Be Still

Be still and know that I am God
Trust in me though life can be hard
I will guide you through the storms each day
Setting you on My path to steady your way
All things will work out despite how you feel
Have faith and My blessings will become real
I love you more than you will ever know
I promise to never let you go
Trust in me and I will keep you in regard
Be still and know that I am God

All my love and may you be blessed beyond measure, continually in prayer, listening for God’s still, small voice, and thankful for every gift and blessing in your life–no matter how small. ❤

Do Not Be Anxious and Trust

Trust in the LORD with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding.
~ Proverbs 3:5 ~

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 ~

May your heart be encouraged by the promises of the Lord and may you trust in him midst the trials and tribulations of this world. ❤

New Year Equals New Opportunities (Beckah Shae~Life)

Prayer of jebez

New Year equals new opportunities, new outlook, and new chances! I love the beginning of a new year as it provides a chance to start over with a clean slate and positive outlook!! Just as each day provides a clean slate, so too does each new year. This year…expect the best, prepare for the worst, love boldly, laugh out loud, cry deeply, hope eternally, and live fully!! You never know when your life or the life of a loved one will be taken for none of us are ever promised tomorrow! Each breath is a gift! Don’t waste this year spending your life in anger, envy, strife, conflict, blame, guilt, shame, anxiety, or bitterness for they take away the joy and beauty of each day and take a physical, spiritual, mental, and emotional toll on the quality of your life.

1. If you are angry, pray for peace and surrender to the Lord your anger.
2. If you are envious, try being thankful for what you DO have, for many others have much less than you.
3. If you are in strife or conflict with someone, apologize and make things right….even if you aren’t the one
who made things wrong (after all God forgives and makes things right with you everyday, even when
He was not the one who sinned or made things wrong!–just saying’).
4. If you are spending time blaming others for where you are and who you have become, decide to take responsibility for yourself and the direction of your life for only you have the power to change it!!
5. If you are stuck in a life filled with guilt and shame, pray, seek counsel, change your ways, and surrender it to God– it was Christ’s sacrifice that has covered ALL your guilt and shame with love, mercy, and grace at the cross!
6. If you are filled with anxiety about whatever you are facing, be it finances, family struggles,
employment, death, health, or anything else out of your control….rest in the arms of God.
Cast all your cares on Him for He cares for you (more than you may ever know!!).
7. If you hold bitterness towards someone who has wronged you…let it go!!
It doesn’t hurt the other person, but it destroys you from the inside out!
Forgive and find strength in God to show mercy and grace, just as he has so freely given it to you.

Strive to make this year a GOD centered year, instead of a ME centered year and look forward to all that you will be blessed with! When your focus is love and peace, the world is so much better off….and so are YOU!

All my love ❤

Thankful Christmas!

I know Thanksgiving is only a few days away, but it is during this time (as with every day!!) that I am ever so thankful for all that God has done for me (and for you!!). He sent His only Son to die for us, that we might find salvation through His sacrifice! As you sit down together to enjoy family time, whether to celebrate Thanksgiving, or just to eat a typical dinner, remember that despite the storms that rage and the circumstances that seem to crush, God is there and has given His all for you. He wants you to have peace, joy, unending love, and know the glory of his grace, strength and mercy. So to start this Christmas season off right…let’s not forget to thank God for all He has done and is yet to do.

All my love ❤
