Impossible Situations

"Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe,

all things are possible to him that believeth."

Mark 9:23,

"And Jesus looking upon them saith,

With men it is impossible, but not with God:

for with God all things are possible."

Mark 10:27,

"And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief:

For verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed,

ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place;

and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you."

Matthew 17:20, *

I have a maker
He formed my heart
Before even time began
My life was in his hand
Chorus
He knows my name
He knows my every thought
He sees each tear that falls
And hears me when I call
I have a Father
He calls me his own
He'll never leave me
No matter where I go
Chorus
He knows my name
He knows my every thought
He sees each tear that falls
And hears me when I call

Day 20

Verses About Fear


But now thus says the Lord,
He who created you, O Jacob,
He who formed you, O Israel:
“Fear not, for I have redeemed you;
I have called you by name, you are mine.
When you pass through the waters, I will be with you;
And through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you;
When you walk through fire you shall not be burned,
And the flame shall not consume you.
Isaiah 43:1-2
But whoever listens to me will dwell secure
And will be at ease, without dread of disaster.”

—Proverbs 1:33
For I, the Lord your God,
Hold your right hand;
It is I who say to you, “Fear not,
I am the one who helps you.”

—Isaiah 41:10,13
46:1 God is our refuge and strength,
A very present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear though the earth gives way,
Though the mountains be moved into the heart of the sea,

—Psalm 46:1-2


Footprints

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iuq-bgbH ... re=related


One night a man had a dream. He dreamed
He was walking along the beach with the LORD.

Across the sky flashed scenes from his life.
For each scene he noticed two sets of
Footprints in the sand: one belonging
To him, and the other to the LORD.

When the last scene of his life flashed before him,
He looked back at the footprints in the sand.

He noticed that many times along the path of
His life there was only one set of footprints.

He also noticed that it happened at the very
Lowest and saddest times in his life.

This really bothered him and he
Questioned the LORD about it:

"LORD, you said that once I decided to follow
You, you'd walk with me all the way.
But I have noticed that during the most
Troublesome times in my life,
There is only one set of footprints.
I don't understand why when
I needed you most you would leave me."

The LORD replied:

"My son, my precious child,
I love you and I would never leave you.
During your times of trial and suffering,
When you see only one set of footprints,
It was then that I carried you."


PRAYER.

May you use those gifts that you have received,

and pass on the love that has been given to you.

May you be content knowing you are a child of God.



Let His presence settle into our bones,

and allow your soul the freedom to sing,

dance, and to bask in the sun.

Brother Doug must be running a little late today so I'll post this to hold us over!!! God Bless!!!

Working Because of Love

If ye love me, keep my commandments.
John 14:15

When people hear a Christian say that we can do nothing to earn our salvation, they often ask questions like, "Then why do you go to church? Why do you feel you need to read the Bible every day? Why do you pray? If salvation is free, why are you doing so much?"

Some people feel that if we're doing so much, then Christianity must be very demanding and salvation is far from free.

Salvation is a gift. We can do nothing to earn that gift. If we had to earn salvation, it wouldn't be a gift. It would be payment for services rendered.

The skeptic asks, "Then why are you working so hard? If salvation is free, you shouldn't have to work at all."

What some don't understand is that I'm not working to get saved. I'm working because I'm saved.

Imagine a little girl pulling weeds in the front yard. A woman walks by and asks the little girl, "Are you pulling those weeds so you can become your mother's child?"

What a strange question! The little girl is already her mother's child. She's pulling weeds because she loves her mother and wants to show her love by obeying her.

God has already saved me. I'm working because I love Him and want to obey Him. I go to church because I want to worship the one who gave His life for me. I read the Bible because it is God's love letter to me. I pray because I want to spend time with the one I love and share my innermost feelings with Him. I write these devotionals because I want to tell others about the greatest love I have ever found.

"We love him, because he first loved us" (1 John 4:19).

God didn't love us because of what we did. He loved us because He is love. And we return that love by obeying Him.

(If this devotional has blessed you, please pass it on.)

From a fellow traveler just passing through,

DAY 22.

But the fruit of the Spirit is Love, Joy, Peace,

Long suffering, Gentleness, Goodness, Faith,

Galatians 5:22.King James Bible



So let's find out what this whole 'Joy' thing is supposed to be about.

Joy is the second fruit of the spirit listed in The above Bible Text

According to Strong's Concordance, this 'Joy' means
"cheerfulness, that is, calm delight: - gladness, X greatly

, (X be exceeding) joy (-ful, -fully, -fulness, -ous)."

Here are just 3 of many things I feel JOYFUL about

The Birth Of A Child Brings great Joy

Been a messenger for the Lord gives me Joy.

Receiving Good News brings me Joy

Please focus today on just 3 things

That bring you personal JOY Amen



I've got the joy joy, down in my heart

Down in my heart to stay


And I'm so happy

So very happy

I've got the love of Jesus in my heart

Down in my heart

And I'm so happy

So very happy

I've got the love of Jesus in my heart.


I've got the love of Jesus, love of Jesus

Down in my heart

Where?

Down in my heart!

Where?

Down in my heart!

I've got the love of Jesus, love of Jesus

Down in my heart

Where?

Down in my heart to stay.

AMEN.

WHATVER HAPPENS TODAY PLEASE THING OF JOY.


LET US PRAY.

God you've walked where I've walked
You've seen what I've seen,
You have felt all my pain,
You know all my dreams.
You have faced all my trials,
My temptations and fears,
You have struggled along,
Like I have for years.
Always looking up to the Heavens above,
Reaching out for your hand and your undying love.
Knowing in my heart you will always see me through,
God, I can't thank you enough for all that you do.
Your compassion keeps flowing, your mercy never ends,
You're my Savior my Father, my very best friend.

Written By Eva Dimel
Inspired By God

Tranquil souls and peaceful spirits, no matter what takes place in our lives .
Help us to come to you each day for rest .

tHANKS jEFF AND JAN FOR MAKING SURE THE MESSAGE GOT THROUGH oK. G L Y A S D I.

Day 23 MAY DA Y

GOOD Morning

Peace Is The Third Of The Fruits Of The Spirit.



Jesus Came to Bring Peace

Isaiah recorded a prophecy declaring Jesus would be the ........ Prince of Peace:

"For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given;

And the government will be upon His shoulder.

And His name will be called Wonderful,

Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father

Prince of Peace

(Isaiah 9:6 NKJV.)


Jesus talked about peace to His disciples on the night of His last Passover

Before He was crucified:

"Peace I leave with you,

My peace I give to you;

not as the world gives do I give to you.

Let not your heart be troubled,

neither let it be afraid

(John 14:27 NKJV.)


"These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace

. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer,

I have overcome the world"

(John 16:33 NKJV.)




Peace in the Valley

http://preciouslordtakemyhand.com/publi ... he-valley/


Oh well, I’m tired and so weary
But I must go alone
Till the lord comes and calls, calls me away, oh yes
Well the morning’s so bright
And the lamp is alight
And the night, night is as black as the sea, oh yes

There will be peace in the valley for me, some day
There will be peace in the valley for me, oh Lord I pray
There’ll be no sadness, no sorrow
No trouble, trouble I see
There will be peace in the valley for me, for me

Well the bear will be gentle
And the wolves will be tame
And the lion shall lay down by the lamb, oh yes
And the beasts from the wild
Shall be led by a child
And I’ll be changed, changed from this creature that I am, oh
Yes

There will be peace in the valley for me, some day
There will be peace in the valley for me, oh Lord I pray
There’ll be no sadness, no sorrow
No trouble, trouble I see
There will be peace in the valley for me, for me

Words and Music: Thomas A. Dorsey




For all needing Prayer today.

Good Morning All.

THE FRUITS OF THE SPIRITS
Are LOVE, JOY ,PEACE


Todays focus is on .,PATIENCE

Long Suffering or Patience is a fruit many of us have to work on.
It surely seems like suffering when we are being Patient with someone or some situation!
Work on this one—instead of complaining in a long line and getting upset and others upset with you -
try meditating on the Word - balance your check book
, HA! - talk to God - or just let your fruit show to others.
Your body will thank you for having Patience - you won't leave any situation bound in knots!



My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces PATIENCE. But let PATIRNCE have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.

James 1:2-4 NKJ


http://www.hymnal.net/hymn.php?t=h&n=397



More Holiness Give Me

More holiness give me,
More sweetness within,
More patience in suff'ring,
More sorrow for sin,
More faith in my Savior,
More sense of His care,
More joy in His service,
More freedom in prayer.


Come, my Savior, and help me,
Comfort, strengthen and keep me;
Thou each moment wilt save me,
Thou art saving me now.


More gratitude give me,
More trust in the Lord,
More zeal for His glory,
More hope in His Word,
More tears for His sorrows,
More pain at His grief,
More meekness in trial,
More praise for relief.


More victory give me,
More strength to o'ercome,
More freedom from earth-stains,
More quest for the throne,
More fit for the kingdom,
More useful I'd be,
More blessed and holy,
More, Savior, like Thee.






Mine and Rebecca"s PATIENCE was put to the test just yesterday

Through Lack Of Communication with the Ward staff.

But eventually Common sense prevailed and we were able to go out for dinner as planned but for a shorter time.

Praise The Lord.



A PRAYER FOR PATIENCE

Gracious God, it’s so hard to wait. To wait for new things to happen in my life. To wait for you to answer my prayers. To wait for the open doors that may lead me into a new way of being. During the time of waiting, it seems that all I can think of is having what it is I am waiting for. At times I feel weary of asking and waiting, and I wonder if you really hear my prayers at all, if you are ignoring me, or if you are simply refusing to give me my heart’s desire. A part of me knows that you want my best, and that your time is not my time, but Lord, it is still so hard to wait. Deepen my trust, O Lord, during the times when my heart longs for what can only come in the fullness of time. Give me a calm assurance that your will for me is grander than anything I could ever imagine. Still my mind and heart in your love so that I am mindful of the grace you are draping around me every single day, every single moment. I ask this for the sake of your love.

Amen.
