I THANK YOU 

FOR SENDING YOUR SON TO EARTH…

TO ESTABLISH A PATTERN OF LIVING THAT 

WOULD HELP DEVELOP OUR SELF WORTH…

AND OUR STOPS IN YOUR HOLY WORD…

FOR DIVINE INTERVENTION 

AND INTERCESSION 

AFTER WE’VE ACCEPTED YOU AS LORD.

TO KEEP OUR ROUTE 

IN CHECK ON LIFE’S WAY.

THANK YOU, FATHER,

FOR FAMILY AND FOR FRIENDS

WHOSE LIVES WE DAILY SHARE.

WE’RE REMINDED OF YOUR JOURNEY UP

GOLGOTHA’S HILL WHEN YOU

HAD NOT EVEN DONE ANYTHING WRONG.

WE REALIZE OUR “LITTLE CROSSES” 

THAT SEEM SO DIFFICULT FOR US TO BEAR

ARE OF NO COMPARISON TO THE THORNY

CROWN THAT YOU WERE

REQUIRED TO WEAR.

SO, FATHER, 

IN SPITE OF DISEASE OR DIAGNOSIS 

MADE BY MEDICAL MAN

WE THANK YOU..

THAT OUR COMPLETE HEALING

IS STILL WITHIN YOUR UNCHANGING HAND.

PLEA TO  OUR HEAVENLY FATHER


HEAVENLY FATHER,

WHEN MY SHOULDERS ARE BENT

AND MY HEAD BOWED DOWN LOW...

BECAUSE OF THE PATH ON WHICH

YOU REQUIRE THAT I GO.

SEND FAMILY AND FRIENDS

TO PROP UP MY OUTSTRETCHED ARMS

TO REV UP 

THE POWER OF YOUR HOLY SPIRIT

WHO EVER GUARDS ME FROM HARM.

AS THE EAGLE AWAITS THE WIND TO CARRY

WITH HER WINGS OUTSTRETCHED WIDE…

I AWAIT 

THE POWER OF YOUR SPIRIT

TO ENABLE MY SPIRIT 

TO SOAR UPWARD...THEN GLIDE…

HIGH ABOVE 

DETRIMENTAL PERMANENT EFFECTS

OF PRESENT UNTOWARD CIRCUMSTANCE

THAT ROCK MY WORLD

AND MAKE ME THINK

THAT I CANNOT “STAND.”

FATHER, 

THOSE “THINGS” YOU ALLOW

ME TO GO THROUGH…

I MUST REST IN THE CERTAIN ASSURANCE

THAT YOU ARE GOING ALONG TOO.

HELP ME TO SPEAK TRUTH

CONCERNING WHAT IS GOING ON INSIDE…

SO THAT THOSE YOU HAVE SENT TO AID

ARE NOT ENCUMBERED BY MY PRIDE.

THAT THEY WILL SEEK OUT YOUR WISDOM

TO IMPART EVEN IN CONVERSATION…

THAT THEIR SUGGESTED COPING SKILLS 

WILL NOT

BE CONTROVERSIAL 

TO MY SPIRITUAL STABILIZATION.

AMEN...AMEN...AMEN

PRAYER AS I AWAKENED

HOLY FATHER IN HEAVEN, AS I BOW HUMBLY BEFORE THEE,

THANK YOU FOR DRAWING AND SEEKING 

SO THAT BY ACCEPTING YOU

I WOULD BE FREE.

THANK YOU LORD, 

FOR WASHING AWAY MY SINS

WITH YOUR PRECIOUS BLOOD.

SO THAT HEALING INNER PEACE COULD ENTER LIKE A FLOOD....

THAT BROUGHT ME SAFELY THROUGH.

OH FATHER, BECAUSE OF CHRIST,

I NEED NOT BE ASHAMED

FOR IT IS IN 

YOUR RIGHTEOUSNESS AND HOLINESS ALONE, THAT I...STAND.

THE WORD SAYS THAT 

YOU ABIDE IN THE TEMPLE, 

AND IN THIS INSTANCE IT MEANS, 

MY BODY, 

THAT AWARENESS IS PLAIN AND SIMPLE.

SO FATHER, AS YOU ARE IN THIS TEMPLE AS I RAISE MY HANDS IT’S TRUE

THAT YOU CAN SILENCE, DOUBT, SORROW, GRIEF, 

LACK OF FAITH OR FEAR 

THAT DOES NOT EMIT FROM YOU.

  SILENCE ANY UNGODLY EFFORT

TO TRY TO TAKE CONTROL...

OF SITUATIONS IN LIFE 

AS STRONG BILLOWS BEGIN TO ROLL.

FATHER, YOU’RE THE ONE 

WHO CALMED AND STILLED THE SEA,

AND OFFERED US THAT INNER CALM 

THAT ONLY COMES FROM THEE.

I CONTINUE TO ACCEPT YOUR PEACE 

AND YOUR PERFECT PLAN FOR US.

WORSHIP, 

STAND..

LOOK TO YOU..

AND LIVE.

I ACCEPT YOUR LOVE AS IT ABOUNDS MORE AND MORE...

GIVING DIRECTION AND EMPOWERMENT...TO PRESS ON…

TO ENDURE. AMEN.

EARNEST PRAYER


THANK YOU, HEAVENLY FATHER

THAT OUR HAIR AND BODY PARTS

DO NOT DEFINE US.

WE ARE DEFINED 

BY SOUND MIND AND FAITH

IN OUR GOD 

IN WHOM WE PLACE OUR TRUST.

DECISIONS ARE SUBMITTED

IN TOTAL, O GOD.

PLACED WITHIN YOUR DIVINE WILL.

GRANT DISCERNMENT

AND INNER PEACE AS

ALL NEEDS YOU CONTINUE TO FULFILL.

WALK WITH ME AS I TREAD DOWN PATHS

THAT TAKE ME 

TOWARD UNKNOWN ROADS.

IN STRICT UNWAVERING FAITH...WHY? 

BECAUSE 

YOU HAVE ALWAYS CARRIED MY LOAD.

THANK YOU , HEAVENLY FATHER, THAT I 

WILL ALWAYS BE “COMPLETE IN YOU.”

NOT IN SPITE OF CIRCUMSTANCE, 

BUT IN THEM…

ALLOWING YOU TO WALK ME THROUGH.

THE IMPORTANCE OF THIS FACT, OH GOD,

IS THAT LIFE’S JOURNEY

IS NOT BASED ON MY PHYSICAL WALK.

IT IS BASED ON 

MY SPIRITUAL WALK OF OBEDIENCE

IN MY DESIRE TO “WALK MY TALK.”

YOU ALONE CAN STRENGTHEN 

AND ENCOURAGE.

I AM IN YOUR CARE. 

ON YOU I SHALL DEPEND.

THANK YOU, HEAVENLY FATHER, 

THAT IN THIS HOUR OF UNCERTAINTY,

YOU STILL REMAIN MY CLOSEST FRIEND.          AMEN...AMEN

TERRORISTIC THREATS

 TERRORISTIC  THREATS  


BE CALM, AT EASE. BE CONFIDENT. THERE IS NO NEED FOR PANIC OR FEAR.  WE KNOW NOT THE TIME OR METHOD WHEN TERRORISTIC ATTACKS MIGHT APPEAR.

WHILE WE ARE  APPROACHING DIFFICULT TIMES GOD CONTINUES TO CALL HIS ROLL. AS CHRISTIANS... SATAN RULED TERRORISTS MAY AFFECT OUR BODY. 

BUT ONLY GOD CAN POSSESS OUR SOUL.

THERE IS AN INNER PEACE THAT ACCOMPANIES SALVATION.

IT'S ONE OF THE GIFTS FROM THE FATHER ABOVE. 

WE ARE  SHELTERED UNDER WINGS OF PROTECTION

AND WE'RE SURROUNDED BY HIS BOUNDLESS LOVE. 

STILL, WE HAVE NO LICENSE TO ACT AS THOUGH WE DON'T EVEN CARE. 

WE MUST STILL EXERCISE WISDOM...

BE CONSCIOUS OF CHANGE AND BECOME MORE AWARE. 

THERE ARE SOME NEW GUIDELINES IN EFFECT

TO HELP US AVOID TERRORISTIC SNARES.

GOD'S WORD ADMONISHES US  TO WATCH AND CEASELESSLY PRAY. 

SO WE SHOULD NOT BUCK AT THE INCONVENIENCE

OF DOING THINGS MORE SAFELY EACH DAY.

THERE IS A WAR GOING ON. SATAN'S TERRORISTS WANT US 

TO LOSE CONTROL OF OUR MIND

BUT IF WE PRACTICE TRUST AND OBEDIENCE TO GOD'S WORD.

SOUNDNESS, POWER, LOVE , CONTINUED PEACE WE WILL FIND. 

SO BE CALM, AT EASE, BE CONFIDENT IN YOUR FAITH. DO NOT PANIC.

DO NOT FEAR. FOR WE'RE SAFE IN THE ARMS OF OUR SOVEREIGN GOD

WHETHER TERRORISTS ARE AFAR OR NEAR.   jane rhoda walker    

SONG OF LOVE & PRAISE

LET'S SING A SONG TOGETHER. 

A SONG OF LOVE AND PRAISE. 

LET'S LIFT OUR HANDS UP TO OUR LORD AS OUR VOICES  WE MELODICALLY RAISE.

OH HOW YOU LOVE US, O GOD.

ENOUGH TO SACRIFICE YOUR ONLY SON.

OUR EYES WE LIFT TO YOU  IN HUMBLE PRAISE FOR YOUR BLESSINGS, 

EACH AND EVERY ONE!

YOU'VE COVERED US WITH PROTECTION FROM DANGERS BOTH SEEN AND UNSEEN. YOUR ARMS OF LOVE ENFOLD US WITH PEACE MORE THAN WE HAVE EVER DREAMED. 

YOU HAVE SATURATED US WITH BOTH YOUR MERCY AND YOUR GRACE. 

WITH CONSTANT REASSURANCE  OF YOUR GUIDANCE FOR LIFE'S RACE. 

SOMETIMES, FATHER,  IT IS HARD IN  OUR SEASON OF LIFE TO BE CONTENT.

HARD TO BELIEVE THAT OUR CIRCUMSTANCES CAN EVEN BE HEAVEN SENT.

BUT ESPECIALLY IN OUR SORROWS WE MUST STILL HUMBLY BOW

AND ACCEPT THE JOY AND STRENGTH YOU GIVE

DURING THE DARK TIMES  WHICH YOU ALLOW.

OH, WE CAN STILL SING A SONG TOGETHER! 

A SONG OF LOVE, 

A SONG OF PRAISE, 

A SONG OF TRUST.

YES, WE CAN COME OUT WITH OUR PRAISE HANDS UP... 

TO ACKNOWLEDGE GOD'S FAITHFULNESS NEVER FAILS.

TO ACKNOWLEDGE  OUR GOD WHO...

PERPETUALLY TAKES CARE OF US.  

THANKFUL ATTITUDE

MY DEVOTIONAL READING FOR TODAY SAYS WINDOWS OF HEAVEN

ARE OPENED BY A THANKFUL ATTITUDE. 

AS LOOKING UP WITH A GRATEFUL HEART WILL GLIMPSE GLORY FOR YOU!

YOU CANNOT YET LIVE IN HEAVEN BUT YOUR EXPERIENCE GLIMPSES REVIVE HOPE!

BOADENING WIDELY  YOUR PRESENT SPIRITUAL SCOPE. 

THANKFULNESS IS NOT  A MAGIC FORMULA. 

IT IS THE LANGUAGE OF LOVE 

TRANSPORTED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT TO OUR SOVEREIGN GOD ABOVE.

IT ALLOWS US TO REJOICE  IN OUR FATHER 

IN THE MIDST OF ILLNESS,  TRIALS, TRIBULATIONS.

ENHANCES THE JOY OF THE LORD  AS OUR STRENGTH IN EVERY SITUATION.

SO LET'S LIVE TODAY WITH A RENEWED ATTITUDE  OF GRATEFULLNESS.

STRIVING TO WALK THE UPWARD WAY

WHILE EXPERIENCING GOD'S GRACE...IN THE PRESS.       

PSALM 87:7B "ALL MY SPRINGS ARE IN THEE"

ALL MY SPRINGS ARE IN THEE...LORD

REFRESHING SPRINGS ACCORDING TO THY WORD. 

SPRINGS OF CONTENTMENT AND INNER PEACE...

SPRINGS OF COMFORT AND COMMUNION WITH THEE.

SPRINGS OF SATISFACTION IN TRUSTING YOUR WORD...

SPRINGS OF KINSHIP AS AN HEIR OF THINE...LORD.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR REFRESHING SPRINGS

SWEET...COOL...AND EVER FLOWING.

THANK YOU FOR ACCESS TO THEM

AND A GOD WHO IS...ALL KNOWING. 

THANK YOU FOR RENEWED STRENGTH

FOR THE COMMITMENTS MADE FOR YOU.

THANK YOU, THANK YOU FATHER 

FOR I KNOW  YOU WILL SEE ME THROUGH.    

Thank You For Peace

GOOD  MORNING, LORD.

I THANK YOU FOR SOUND MIND AGAIN TODAY.

FOR KNOWLEDGE OF WHO AND WHOSE I AM

AS I TRAVEL ON LIFE'S WAY.

THIS LIFE, DEAR FATHER, SEEMS SOMETIMES TO BE ONE GREAT CONTINUOUS WAR.

I AM THANKFUL THAT IN EACH BATTLE YOU ALLOW MY SPIRIT TO STILL SOAR...

WAY UP HIGH BEYOND THE CIRCUMSTANCES MY SPIRIT CAN FLEE.

ASSIGN BODYGUARDS OF GODLINESS, GRACE, AND MERCY,

MINDFUL OF YOUR WILL THAT WHAT WILL BE...WILL BE.

YOU ALONE, FATHER, ARE IN INFINITE CONTROL OF MY SOUL.

THE MOST IMPORTANT PART OF BODY, SOUL AND SPIRIT.

YES...YOU REMAIN IN CONTROL.

SHOW ME THE PATHS WHERE I SHOULD WALK.

TEACH ME, FATHER, TO HUMBLY, WALK MY TALK,

SO THAT I MAY CONTINUE TO BE IN YOUR CIRCLE OF BLESSING.

AWARE THAT IN EACH PHASE I MUST LEARN YOUR INTENDED LESSON.

YOUR TIMING, PROTECTION AND FOREKNOWLEDGE 

OVERSHADOW MY LIFE WITH YOUR FAVOR.

IT'S SUCH A WONDERFUL PEACE YOU PROVIDE

SINCE I ACCEPTED YOU AS MY SAVIOR...

THE SMALL CHALLENGES OF LIFE LOOM LARGER AS I GROW OLDER. 

BUT STUDY AND MEDITATION 

ON YOUR WORD GROWS FAITH THAT IS STRONGER AND BOLDER.

SO AS I TRUST YOU AND STRIVE TO OBEY,

MAINTAIN MY MIND IN A MODE OF PEACE

AS I FACE EACH BRAND NEW DAY.

THE SONG WRITER SAYS IT THIS WAY..."PEACE,PEACE, WONDERFUL PEACE,

COMING DOWN FROM THE FATHER ABOVE. 

SWEEP OVER MY SPIRIT,

FOREVER, I PRAY, WITH YOUR FATHOMLESS BILLOWS OF LOVE."

THANK YOU, FATHER,

FOR THE PEACE THAT ONLY COMES FROM YOU

AND THAT THOSE BILLOWS OF PEACE WILL CONTINUE

AS I AM STRIVING TO GO THROUGH.  AMEN...AMEN

FATHER I CAN ONLY TRUST YOU...TO KEEP ME STEADFAST.

BE ENCOURAGED

   (Excerpts Ephesians 3:14-21 TLB)   

DO NOT BE OVERWHELMED BY THE LOSS OF LOVED ONES 

OR RELATIONSHIPS HERE ON EARTH.

EVEN THOUGH THEY'VE BEEN AN INTEGRAL PART OF YOU 

THEY STILL DO NOT DETERMINE YOUR WORTH! 

YOUR WORTH IS DETERMINED BY YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD AND MAN. 

AS YOU FACE BATTLES IN THIS LIFE ON HIS WORD,YOU MUST CONTINUE TO STAND! 

YOUR THOUGHTS ARE NOT YOUR THOUGHTS NOR ARE YOUR WAYS MY WAYS, SAYS THE LORD IN ISAIAH FIFTY-FIVE EIGHT

GOD WANTS TO BLESS YOU FOR THE REST OF YOUR DAYS.

OUR GOD IS NOT CONFINED TO THE FINITE IMAGINATION OF MAN. 

WE FILL OUR MIND WITH PLANNING BUT HE EXECUTES HIS MASTER PLAN

FOR THIS REASON WE MUST BOW OUR KNEES 

TO THE FATHER OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST. 

FOR WHOM THE WHOLE FAMILY OF HEAVEN AND EARTH IS NAMED. 

HIS HOLY WILL FOR US...MUST STILL SUFFICE. 

OUR DESIRE IS THAT HE WOULD GRANT YOU, 

ACCORDING TO THE RICHES OF HIS GLORY 

TO BE STRENGTHENED WITH MIGHT

THROUGH HIS SPIRIT IN YOUR INNER MAN 

AS IF IT WERE MANDATORY. 

THAT CHRIST MAY CONTINUE TO DWELL IN YOUR HEART, THROUGH FAITH. 

THAT YOU, BEING ROOTED AND GROUNDED IN LOVE MAY BE ABLE TO COMPREHEND WITH ALL THE SAINTS; WHAT IS THE WIDTH, LENGTH, DEPTH, AND HEIGHT. 

TO KNOW THE LOVE OF CHRIST WHICH PASSES KNOWLEDGE.

THAT YOU MAY BE FILLED

WITH THE FULLNESS OF GOD WITH SPIRITUAL UNDERSTANDING 

SUPERIOR TO WHAT IS LEARNED IN COLLEGE.

FOR OUR GOD IS ABLE TO DO EXCEEDINGLY ABOVE ALL THAT WE ASK OR EVEN THINK! ACCORDING TO THE POWER THAT WORKS IN US. HIS HOLY SPIRIT IS THE LINK. 

TO HIM BE GLORY BY CHRIST JESUS TO ALL GENERATIONS FOREVER AND EVER OUR RELATIONSHIP AND SECURITY IN JESUS, NO MAN, OR CIRCUMSTANCE...CAN EVER SEVER. BE ENCOURAGED BY THESE TRUTHS AND CONCEPTS FOUND IN GOD'S HOLY WORD. BECAUSE THEY DIRECTLY APPLY TO US ALL SINCE WE'VE ACCEPTED HIM AS LORD.  


  Daily Bread Prayer... O Lord give me

 the grace to be Content with what you give to me.

 No! more than that...Let me rejoice in what I have.


IT’S ASSURING

HEAVENLY FATHER, I LOVE YOU, ADORE YOU.

IT'S ASSURING TO FEEL YOUR PRESENCE NEAR.

AS I AM SURROUNDED BY LIFE'S CIRCUMSTANCES..

SOVEREIGN GOD, YOUR VOICE IN YOUR WORD..IS STILL CLEAR. 

I MUST CAST ALL MY CARES UPON YOU....... 

SO...ALL MY CARES...

I  NOW CAST UPON YOU. 

THAT INCLUDES PRINCIPALITIES , POWERS, AND DIVISIVE, NON SINCERE  PEOPLE TOO. YOUR WORD SAYS 

THE BATTLE IS NOT  MINE. 

YOU ARE THE CHIEF IN CHARGE. 

I MUST PUT ON THE FULL ARMOR IN YOUR WORD...

EVEN BEFORE THE ENEMY LOOMS LARGE. 

THE BELT OF TRUTH AND  BREASTPLATE OF YOUR APPROVAL,

WEARING SHOES THAT ARE ISSUED BY YOU TO WALK IN PEACE WITHOUT REMOVAL.

WITH FAITH AS MY SHIELD TO PROTECT AGAINST SATAN'S DARTS,

THE HELMET OF SALVATION, SWORD OF YOUR SPIRIT.

OH MY MAGNIFICENT FATHER...HOW GREAT THOU ART.

I MUST PRAY WITHOUT CEASING. ASKING YOUR SPIRIT TO INTERCEDE. 

FOR YOUR HOLY SPIRIT ALONE IS AWARE OF YOUR WILL. 

YOU, DEAR FATHER, KNOW WHAT I NEED.

EMPOWER ME, FATHER, TO SPEAK WITH OTHERS IN KINDNESS AND IN LOVE. 

TO ENCOURAGE THEM TO ACCEPT YOU.

TO BE READY FOR YOUR CALL FROM ABOVE.

 I THANK YOU, HEAVENLY FATHER. 

I'LL LOVE AND ADORE YOU..ALWAYS.

SOVEREIGN GOD, IT'S ASSURING TO FEEL YOUR PRESENCE. 

I WILL TRUST YOU FOR THE REST OF MY DAYS.   

IT'S AN HONOR AND A PRIVILEDGE

IT'S AN HONOR AND A PRIVILEDGE, OH LORD, TO WORSHIP THEE. 

IT'S A PRIVILEDGE AND AN HONOR THAT YOU HAVE CHOSEN ME.

IT'S AN HONOR AND A PRIVILEDGE AS MY HUMBLE PRAISES ASCEND. IT'S A PRIVILEDGE AND AN HONOR ON YOU TO DEPEND.

MY LORD, IT'S A PRIVILEDGE.

MY GOD, IT'S AN HONOR.

HOLY SPIRIT, IT'S A PRIVILEDGE...

I THANK YOU 

FOR INDWELLING POWER. 

CONCERNING FAITH

HEAVENLY FATHER, CONCERNING FAITH EACH OF US HAS BEEN GIVEN "A MEASURE". THE EXPERIENCES OF FAITH IN YOUR HOLY WORD HAVE NOW BECOME MY TREASURE. "FAITH IS THE SUBSTANCE OF THINGS HOPED FOR"

THE EVIDENCE OF THINGS WE CANNOT SEE. 

THANK YOU FATHER 

FOR FAITH TO ACCEPT  WHAT YOU  ALREADY KNOW IS TO BE.

FOR FAITH IS MY CONFIDENCE THAT YOU ARE ALWAYS IN CONTROL

OF MY  LIFE, OF MY SUBSTANCE AND MOST ASSUREDLY OF MY SOUL. 

FAITH DEAR FATHER, CAN ONLY BE INCREASED BY YOU. 

FOR YOU ALONE ARE AWARE OF MY "MEASURE" 

AND ITS ABILITY TO CARRY ME THROUGH. 

MUSTARD SEED SIZED FAITH  IS CERTAINLY ACCEPTED BY THEE 

WHEN THE QUALITY NOT QUANTITY IS GREAT ITS VALUE NOTHING ELSE CAN EXCEED.

HEAVENLY FATHER, GRANT FAITH THAT MIGHT BE WEAKENED 

BUT WILL NEVER  BECOME "UNDONE". 

A QUALITY FAITH OF VICTORY KNOWING THAT BATTLES OF LIFE WILL BE WON. 

GRANT THAT FAITH, FATHER THAT COMES FROM HEARING YOUR WORD. 

AS YOUR WORD INITIATED FAITH. NOW INCREASE THROUGH YOUR WORD DEAR LORD. LET ME NOT BE DECEIVED THAT FAITH IS INCREASED BY "MORE THINGS". 

FOR FAITH COMES FROM TRUST IN GOD

THEN REMAINS WHATEVER CIRCUMSTANCES LIFE BRINGS. 

YOU ARE MY "STRENGTH" O LORD AS YOUR WORD SAYS

 "WHOM SHALL I FEAR" 

FEARS BECOME LESS AND FAITH BECOMES FULL AS I SUBMIT ALL EVEN MY CAREER. INCREASE FAITH FATHER  AS YOU HAVE ELIMINATED ALL FEAR OF MY PRESSING FORWARD AND UPWARD KNOWING YOU ARE ALWAYS NEAR.

AS FAITH INCREASES HEAVENLY FATHER AND ITS QUALITY IMPROVES WITH USE.

SHOW ME HOW TO WORK MY FAITH AND NOT SUBJECT IT TO ABUSE.

FAITH IS ALSO INCREASED BY WITNESSING FAITH OF OTHERS WHO NEVER WAVERED AS THEY HELD ON TO THE TRUTHS  IN YOUR HOLY WORD 

AFTER THEY ACCEPTED YOU AS THEIR SAVIOR. 

"MY FAITH LOOKS UP TO THEE" 

LORD AS YOU INCREASE "MY MEASURE" 

THANK YOU FATHER FOR INCREASED  FAITH.

I  ACCEPT IT AS MY TREASURE.   (Excerpts from Pastor  V. Grigsby)    

I SAMUEL 3:9 SPEAK LORD, FOR THY SERVANT HEARETH.

GOD SPEAKS...   

GOD SPEAKS TO US IN A WHISPERED HUSH  IN OUR DAYS OF FUN AND PLEASURE

BUT HE SHOUTS LOUD SHOUTS WHEN EVER WE ARE PAINED  

TO GET OUR ATTENTION BETTER.

FOR PAIN OF BODY OR OF MIND  DRAWS US MUCH CLOSER TO HIM.

AS OUR MAN MADE CRUTCHES ARE REMOVED 

OUR NEED DEEPENS ON HIM TO DEPEND.

WE WERE NEVER PROMISED THAT WE WOULD ESCAPE PAIN... 

ONLY THAT IN SUFFERING WE MIGHT BE ABLE TO GAIN 

FATHER...AN INTIMATE RELATIONSHIP. A CLOSER WALK WITH THEE.

A SURE PEACE WITHIN...A MIND THAT IS SET FREE...

FROM GUILT OF PAST DEEDS  FROM WHICH YOU'VE GRANTED FORGIVENESS 

FROM OUR BLOCKING  THE POWER OF YOUR HOLY SPIRIT WITHIN US. 

WHETHER IN A CROWDED ROOM  OR WHEN NO ONE SEEMS TO BE AROUND OVERSHADOW US WITH YOUR PRESENCE GRANT REST BOTH SAFE AND SOUND. 

FATHER, AS WE LISTEN CLOSELY  FOR YOUR HUSHED WHISPERED TONES 

OR SHOUTS OF PAIN FOR OUR ATTENTION 

THANK YOU FOR NEVER LEAVING US  ALL ALONE.    

PSALMS 103:1-5A & 22 TLB

I BLESS THE HOLY NAME OF GOD WITH ALL MY HEART. YES, I WILL BLESS THE LORD AND NOT FORGET THE GLORIOUS THINGS HE DOES FOR ME. HE FORGIVES ALL MY SINS. HE HEALS ME. HE RANSOMS ME FROM HELL. HE SURROUNDS ME WITH LOVING KINDNESS, AND TENDER MERCIES. HE FILLS MY LIFE WITH GOOD THINGS. LET EVERYTHING EVERYWHERE BLESS THE LORD AND OH HOW I BLESS HIM TOO!
