Question: Is it important to always seek the Lord in making decisions??
One must never forget we have an adversary who is out to kill steal and destroy! The devil is constantly trying to get us to rely on our own abilities and knowledge. And he often whispers in our ear these words…”God doesn’t care”!!
Our enemy is sly and cunning and smart, so we’ve got to be quick to recognize these lies! Therefore, it’s very important to continually seek the Lord for HIS divine wisdom and understanding! Know what the Word of God says and ask Him to fill you with the knowledge of His perfect Will.
“In Christ is hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.” (Colossians 2:3)
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.” (Proverbs 3:5-6)
God has a plan for your life and you can trust HIM to direct you to paths that lead to an outpouring of His Blessings! So don’t make the mistake of just blindly rushing into things. Ask the Lord to give you strength to resist the enemy and commit yourself to waiting for God’s best. You will never be disappointed!
“…I will put my trust in Him.” (Isaiah 8:17)

All my Tomorrow’s
Many things I face in life, I just don’t seem to understand. And no matter how bad I really want to change things, sometimes I just can’t. It’s out of my control.
But, this one thing I do know…God has chosen to love me with an unconditional love. You see, never in my own strength could I live up to God’s standards. But His love is based not on my performance, but on…His Grace! And in all my weakness and mistakes, yet He still loves me. God is my refuge and my strength, my ever-present help in time of need. I choose to walk by faith and not by sight and cling to the promise that God will never leave me nor forsake me. And all my tomorrows are hid in the Shadow of His mighty, loving hand. Therefore why should I be afraid??
I pray that you too may experience God’s wonderful Saving, Keeping Grace. At His feet may you find peace, strength and hope for the future. May you learn to trust His loving care, allowing the Lord to be in control of all your tomorrow’s.

Be blessed with this beautiful song….
“I Know Who Holds Tomorrow”
‘Amazing Grace’… is a beautiful old hymn that praises God for saving a wretched, sinful soul like me! It is a personal testimony for…”Yes, I was lost but now I’m found, I was blind but now I see!” And it’s all because of God’s Amazing Grace!
“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.” (Romans 3:23, 24 NIV).
Some may think of God as nothing but judgmental and vengeful and live their lives in fear of Him. That kind of belief leaves one doubting and afraid, wondering if God has stopped loving you. But God extends to you His Mercy & Grace. Grace is an undeserved favor or gift; the undeserved forgiveness, kindness and mercy that God gives us.
We find the truth in the scriptures: HE is a God of second chances… “Grace” is God’s goodness and mercy lavished upon those who seek forgiveness.
Understand this…Grace is not a license to do evil, but essentially, an escape route for us when we regret having sinned.
Grace has two qualities…
- Grace is given to us regardless of whether we deserve it or not and
- Grace is freely given at no cost to you. You will find Grace freely flows at Calvary where your debt has paid in full! Just accept it!!
I pray you see the hand of the Lord that is always extended to you, inviting you to come just as you are. COME… to the river that overflows with freedom, love, peace, and calm assurance. Acknowledge that you are a sinner in need of a Saviour! There at the foot of the old rugged Cross you will receive Mercy, Grace and Forgiveness. There the gift of Eternal Life awaits…all because it is God’s Will that none should perish.
Oh how powerful, how wonderful, how marvelous is…God’s Amazing Grace!

♥A Love that’s Real♥
In this life we have three great lasting qualities—faith, hope and love. As a follower of Christ, these three virtues must characterize our lives…But the greatest of these is love.
REAL love begins with this…”Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the door-frames of your houses and on your gates.” (Deuteronomy 6:5-9)
In other words…Study the Holy Bible and keep God’s Word fresh on your minds and don’t feel so intimidated that you can’t talk about God’s Word. Speak words of life, bringing hope, peace and even joy into an otherwise dire situation. Care about other’s and be that great example before your Family & Friends…Love the Lord with ALL your heart & let HIS love radiate through you to the world around you! That kind of real love transforms lives!!
Now go shine HIS love and make it a great day for someone!!!
Now these three remain…faith. hope and love. but the greatest of these is Love. (1 Corin 13:13)

Peace like a River
Are you facing uncontrollable circumstances? Are you intimidated by others? Are you weighed down with fear or guilt? Are you nervous, agitated and disturbed within? Do you resent those who are happy?
I ask you this question…Have you truly ever embraced the security and love of God’s Grace?
You see…Jesus intends for those who love and follow HIM to live in peace, regardless of how crazy the world may be around you! Yes indeed the road of life may be rough at times, but one must learn to dodge those deep pot-holes in the road! Despite what may be going on around us, God’s message simply is this—“STOP trying to make things happen. STOP comparing yourself to others and STOP allowing yourself to be anxious, worried, and upset about things you can’t change!! This is what the Word says…
Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise Him, my Savior and my God. (Psalm 42:5)
In other words this is clearly saying—Look to Jesus! Put ALL your Hope and trust in the Lord and “WAIT…expectantly” for Him to help! And while you wait…get your mind off your troubles and”Praise Him”!!!
You will find that if you practice this, then God is so faithful to help you to embrace the wonder of HIS amazing love and give you peace that passes all understanding! He will even give you faith and confidence to face all your tomorrows!
So the next time you feel troubled and afraid and begin to worry and fret…Remember, God has your best at heart! So be quick to ask for HIS help! You will find His Perfect Peace freely flows like a river to all those who love & trust HIM and call upon His Name!
“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” (John 14:27)
“And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus”. (Philippians 4:7)
“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33)
