Away I Am

oct calendar

Good day/ evening beloved. Just a note to let you know that I will be away from posting until  mid November. Thank you for stopping in. I pray that you all keep the faith, walk mighty in love towards all,  have compassion for all, and forgive those who do wrong towards you and yours.  Let us pray this psalm together:

 

 

 Psalm 25

In you, Lord my God,
    I put my trust.

I trust in you;
    do not let me be put to shame,
    nor let my enemies triumph over me.
No one who hopes in you
    will ever be put to shame,
but shame will come on those
    who are treacherous without cause.

Show me your ways, Lord,
    teach me your paths.
Guide me in your truth and teach me,
    for you are God my Savior,
    and my hope is in you all day long.
Remember, Lord, your great mercy and love,
    for they are from of old.
Do not remember the sins of my youth
    and my rebellious ways;
according to your love remember me,
    for you, Lord, are good.

Good and upright is the Lord;
    therefore he instructs sinners in his ways.
He guides the humble in what is right
    and teaches them his way.
10 All the ways of the Lord are loving and faithful
    toward those who keep the demands of his covenant.
11 For the sake of your name, Lord,
    forgive my iniquity, though it is great.

12 Who, then, are those who fear the Lord?
    He will instruct them in the ways they should choose.
13 They will spend their days in prosperity,
    and their descendants will inherit the land.
14 The Lord confides in those who fear him;
    he makes his covenant known to them.
15 My eyes are ever on the Lord,
    for only he will release my feet from the snare.

16 Turn to me and be gracious to me,
    for I am lonely and afflicted.
17 Relieve the troubles of my heart
    and free me from my anguish.
18 Look on my affliction and my distress
    and take away all my sins.
19 See how numerous are my enemies
    and how fiercely they hate me!

20 Guard my life and rescue me;
    do not let me be put to shame,
    for I take refuge in you.
21 May integrity and uprightness protect me,
    because my hope, Lord, is in you.

22 Deliver Israel, O God,
    from all their troubles!

May God deliver us all from our troubles, those who believe in Him.

I Love You All

Encouraging Words and Prayer 4 U Beloved

Psalm 27 (KJV)

1 The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?

14 Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord.

I opened by bible this great Friday morn and was reminded of what the Lord is to me. Verses 1 and 14 are messages from the Holy Spirit to share with you today. I was also reminded to wait on Him and only Him. As you go about today beloved readers, I want to encourage you to fear not anything, be of good courage and wait on the Lord for He is our light and salvation. In Him only, can we find strength. We are granted mercy from the Lord upon each breath we take. I’ve been led to pray for us, please pray with me.

Prayer for us today:

The Lord  is our God. The Lord is one. Father we are sinners. Forgive us of our sins, for they are ever present. Remove all iniquity that dwells within our heart this very moment. Teach us to go forth in your name today Lord – to be strong. Let not the distractions of this world and the worldly people consume your children with the events of what is going on. Let us fear not and let us not be blind. May we focus on you God, build our hope on Jesus’ return and use the Holy Spirit as our Comforter when we have a breaking down moment. YOU want us to rely on Him. I pray Heavenly Father that  those who are reading this find the light that can only be found in you. One day at a time dear Lord, give us strength to endure have mercy on us. Nothing can hurt us as we lean closer to you; as we feed off of your presence within us, Father cover us today as we face trials and temptations. Let us be not deceived. In Jesus name I pray. Amen

I Love You

Saying The Right Words – My Thoughts

Thank you Holy Spirit!  I was studying my “Wisdom Study Plan” tonight. The plan for the day were, three chapters from the Book Of Job….. Chapters 4, 5, and 6.  I never thought of the book as being a wisdom guide until the last three days of studying it. It is a great feeling to study and spend time with God over and over again with the same stories.  Those milk stories turn into meat stories as you grow in faith and love for Him. As I was studying again in Chapter 6, I started thinking, oh Lord, that Job is full of questions and answers, and feisty in the Lord with his words, like I am at times. I was also thinking that he and his friends must have been very close to talk to each other that long. Phew! talk about long winded. How many of us will sit with a friend nowadays for more than an hour or two to carry on a conversation without looking dumbfounded or speechless? Not many, I don’t think.

Any who!  After Eliphaz had his say without catching his breath, I came to verses 25 thru 27, with special attention to verse 25.. Whoa! Hold on horsey! I was thrown off my horse.

Whoa! Whoa! Whoa! Horsey!

Chapter 6 begins with Job’s response to his friend Eliphaz. Let me share the verses here.  “How forceful are right words!   But what do your arguments prove? Do you intend to rebuke my words, And the speeches of a desperate one, which are as wind?  Yes, you overwhelm the fatherless, And you undermine your friend.”

 

Job’s firm statement and question led me along with the Holy Spirit to write this quick message for sharing. I’ll try to make it short. 🙂

Have you ever really thought about how forceful it is to say the right words? Have you ever thought about in day to day situations, and at the end of the day if you have been in an argument, what did the argument prove? Have you ever thought about what is ever accomplished when you are forced to say the right words and/or prove a point because of an argument?-Thought Candy!

When we know in our being without a doubt we have not the right words to say, this is a moment  for us to meditate quietly before opening our yapper and think to self, ‘well self  they say’ “Silence Is Golden. We’ve all experienced a moment with friends, family members, and others when they are grief stricken, hurt by someone or some other event, where it is hard for most to find the right thing to say. It’s even harder, if that person snaps back at you when you’ve felt you said the right thing. For most that turns into an argument unless you just walk away. Saying the wrong things can also put distance between you and another.

…. see! sometimes I know when to keep my mouth shut.

Zip It!

For me there are one or more of four things I say and absolutely mean from my heart when one is sad or grieving:

  • I’m sorry for your pain.
  • I will be in prayer for you.
  • If you need me, you call me.
  • Jesus loves you and I love you.

What I am trying to convey is that through ordeals, sometimes you just let go and let God. A loving hug; an “I’m sorry”; an “I’m here for you”; and/or a “trust in the Lord and be strong” will suffice. If you really don’t know what to say, just hold the person and pray quietly to self for them. This, my loves is where SILENCE is very golden and actions speaks louder than words.  Even though we are experiencing sadness for that person, we need to go outside of self in such moments and just rely on God’s still voice. Because believe it or not, Job hit on the truth with his statement “How forceful are right words!” Sometimes we ramble on until we say the wrong thing which is more hurtful and doesn’t make sense in the end.  What’s that saying, “talking out the side of your neck”?

I shall close here with the message. May you be blessed and say the right things to others in need when the Lord prepares your heart and mind to say them. Otherwise, sit quietly and wait upon the Lord. May you too find some wisdom when studying the Book of Job as I did tonight.  I now understand why it is a book filled with wisdom and whoever prepared the lesson plan online did a wonderful job. I am now wise in knowing that words are indeed like the wind and the wrong words (per Job, “desperate words”) are like undermining another when that person has a personal relationship with God.
