God sees and He hears


Our tears, pain, suffering never goes unnoticed by our God. People may fail to notice our tear, feel our pain, understand our suffering but God sure does! 
Even our slightest sigh He notices and He keeps a record of every single, genuine tear drop!
When we are in any helpless, desperate situation, let us continue to hope in the Lord.
He will come and rescue, heal, redeem us!
His very presence is all we need!
“The Lord will not reject forever, fot if He cause grief, Then He will have compassion, according to His lovingkindness.”-Lamentations 3:31-32
Have a blessed day,

~~From Gethsemane to Calvary you had me on your mind~~


 My Dear Lord and Savior Jesus Christ…(Yeshua)
Your love continues to captivate my heart…
Lord I know you had me on your mind when you prayed in anguish in the Garden of Gethsemane, that your sweat fell like drops of blood.. You knew you had to died in my place, carry all my sins, shame, may pain, my sickness, sorrow, my curse and everything else that was not right and good in me. You willingly chose to die for me so that  I can be totally free and have eternal life…
O how I love you Jesus…
 Luke 22:44
And being in anguish, he prayed more earnestly, and his sweat was like drops of blood falling to the ground.
Lord I know you had me on your mind when you were flogged and O how painful it was and what a deep wound it caused and how much of blood you shed but still you bore it all without a word…for by those stripes you wanted to heal me….
John 19:1
Then Pilate took Jesus and had him flogged.
O how I love you Jesus/Yeshua my Savior…
Lord I know you had me on your mind when they placed a crown of thorns on your head and pressed it hard ..O how it pierced through your head and eye balls and blood oozed out..It hurt you so…badly but you didn’t open your mouth and complain..but bore it all for all evil thoughts and sights of mine….
O how I love you Jesus/Yeshua my Lord…
Lord you had me on your mind when you were mocked, spat on your face and when they pulled your beard and stripped you…for you wanted to bear all my shame and clothe me with your righteousness…
O how I love you Jesus/Yeshua the lover of my soul….
 Matthew 27: 27Then the governor’s soldiers took Jesus into the Praetorium and gathered the whole company of soldiers around him. 28They stripped him and put a scarlet robe on him, 29and then twisted together a crown of thorns and set it on his head. They put a staff in his right hand and knelt in front of him and mocked him. “Hail, king of the Jews!” they said. 30They spit on him, and took the staff and struck him on the head again and again. 31After they had mocked him, they took off the robe and put his own clothes on him. Then they led him away to crucify him
Lord you had me on your mind when you picked up the cross..O how heavy it was and it hurt your bruised back..but still you bore it for you made up your mind to carry my every burden…
O how I love you Jesus/Yeshua my King…
John 19:17
So the soldiers took charge of Jesus. Carrying his own cross, he went out to the place of the Skull (which in Aramaic is called Golgotha).
Lord I know you had me on your mind when your hands were nailed…and you bled, it hurt you so…bad but you wanted to bear the sinful works of my hands so that now my hands can be blessed to bless others and serve others…
I love you Jesus/Yeshua my Shepherd…
Luke 23:33
When they came to the place called the Skull, there they crucified him.
Lord you had me on your mind when your legs were nailed and you bled again, it was too much to bear but still you bore the pain for all the wrong places these feet led me..so that now every place I go is blessed…
O how I love you Jesus/Yeshua my Guide…
And finally when a spear was pierced through Your side rupturing a portion of you heart and your stomach and blood and water gushed out…you still had me on your mind for your heart was ruptured for the wickedness of my heart, so that today my heart is a place where where You live..and filled it with your love and compassion…
O how I love you Jesus/Yeshua my Provider…
John 19:34 Instead, one of the soldiers pierced Jesus’ side with a spear, bringing a sudden flow of blood and water.  
And even today as you sit at the Father’s right hand you still have me on your mind and keep watching over me…and interceding for me
O how I love you Jesus/Yeshua …..
I bow before you Lord…
I praise you my Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth…
You are my Savior….
O how I love you Lord…
You mould me and make me into a woman after your own heart..
Thank you for your grace that saved a sinner like me.

Galatians 6:14
May I never boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.
Hi my dear brothers, sisters and friends,
Isn’t it amazing to think Jesus Christ our Lord had each of us on His mind not just from Gethsemane to Calvary but from the beginning of creation?
He knew us even when we were in our mother’s womb.
Be Blessed,
Hebrews 12:2
Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

What God did not promise and did promise…!


God did not promise.
A life free of pain,
Skies always blue,
Pathway strewn with flowers,
A bed of roses,
Only sunshine with no rain,
Only joy  and  not sorrows,
No heart breaking incident.

But He has promised…..

Grace for the trials,

Comfort in midst of pain.

Light for the way,

Strength when we are weak,
A lift when we fall,
His undying love,
His presence with us at all time!
To mend a broken heart.
Keeps a record of every tear.
And He’ll wipe our every tear one day!

This gives me the courage to keep walking this narrow Path..

What about you?

The clouds will move and the sun will shine…

God will heal, restore and provide….

God…speaks….!!


This is another favorite scripture of mine!
PSALM 42:1 “As a deer pants for streams of water, my soul pants(longs) for you O God.”
 As a deer’s life depends on water, so our lives have to depend on God. And God will speak to those who take time to listen to Him.
He confides in those who fear Him.
Psalm 25:14
The LORD confides in those who fear him; he makes his covenant known to them.
Let’s not get too busy that we fail to spend time with our Lord.
When we go into our prayer closet…let’s forget about ourselves and things around us.
Let’s love Him, Praise Him, Worship Him,
Let’s empty ourselves and crucify our desires and plans.
Let’s thirst for HIS anointing, hunger to know HIM better everyday.
Then we will be surely refreshed in our spirit…
And then we need to quieten ourselves in His Presence…and let God minister to us.
Being still in His presence
Let’s have a blessed time at the Lord’s presence today…
Read His Word, Meditate on it, Praise him, talk to Him and let’s not forget to listen to what our Lord Jesus Christ has to tell us.
O how Jesus loves fellowship…God created man so that He could fellowship with Him and that’s why He enjoyed His walks with Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. He talked with them daily.
PROVERBS 3:32 “He takes the upright into confidence.”
Let’s desire this intimate relationship with our Creator and Savior…
Be Blessed…

Do we YEARN for God?” BY: Blake Hamon


 
Do we YEARN for God?”
BY: Blake Hamon
I’ve been paying a lot of attention to the Psalms, and as I do I attempt to think as David thought. “As a deer pant and thirsts for streams of water, so my soul longs for you O God. My soul thirsts for God. The living God. When can I go and meet with God? (Psalms 42:1-2)”
I don’t question for a moment that we all love to enter into the presence of God with passionate worship…..but do we yearn for Him? Are we ok with not taking time out of our day to sit down with the living God? Are we truly ok with waiting until a Sunday morning or Wednesday night to step into His presence? I’m not talking about the moments when you’re day has lacked any and all enjoyable moments and you hear that perfect song that just warms your heart as you lift up your hands in worship and thank God!
One thing I’ve come to realize during the fast is this:God knows no past, or present circumstance. That’s not implying that those circumstances are non-existent, it merely implies that no circumstance will have a hindrance on the praise I give my God. The increase/decrease of the intensity or severity of our circumstances should have no affect to the intensity of our worship unto God.
I believe a wonderful example of that type of yearning and worship is displayed in Job 1:20-21:
At this, Job got up and tore his robe and shaved his head. Then he fell to the ground in worship and said: “Naked I came from my mother’s womb, and naked I will depart. The LORD gave and the LORD has taken away; may the name of the LORD be praised.
Do we yearn for God?
My prayer not only for myself, but for you as well, is that we would develop a craving for God beyond what we thought was possible; that our hearts would ache until we have encountered God….that in the midst of difficult times – whether big or small – our yearning for Almighty God would stir up a zeal and passion that would cause us to cry out in utter worship at all times – regardless of our circumstances.
God give us a yearning for you. Burn within us a passion that can never be subsided. God, that we would not become complacent or content in our relationship with you, but that ever day we would seek to chase after you with more passion and zeal than the day before. Let our yearning for you overflow out of our hearts and into the lives of others.

“Yearn” by Shane & Shane Lyrics
Holy design 
This place in time 
That I might seek and find my God 
My God
Lord, I want to yearn for You 
I want to burn with passion 
Over You and only You 
Lord, I want to yearn
Your joy is mine 
Yet why am I fine 
With all my singing and bringing grain 
In light of Him
Oh You give life and breath 
Through Him You give all things 
In Him we live and move 
That’s why I sing 
Acts 17:25-28, Hebrews 12:28-29

Being Imitators of Christ…


We are to be imitators and followers of Christ!
Paul write in 1 Corinthians 11:1, “Follow my example, as I follow the example of Christ.”
Ephesians 5:1 “Be imitators of God, therefore, as dearly loved children.”
Max Lucado writes like this about our Lord and Savior!!
In his book”When God whispers your name.”

The Almighty did not act high and mighty!
The Holy One wasn’t holier-than-thou.
The One who knew it all wasn’t a know-it-all.
The One who made the stars didn’t keep His head in them.
The One who owns all the stuff on earth never strutted it!(displayed it)
Never! He could have. Oh how He could have!
He could have been a name-dropper: “Did I ever tell you of the time Moses and I went up on the mountain?”
He could have been a showoff:” Hey want me to beam you into the 20th Century?”
He could have been a smart-alec:” I know what you are thinking. Want me to prove it?”
He could have been highbrow and uppity:”I’ve got some property in Jupiter…”

Jesus could have been all these, but he wasn’t.
His purpose was not to show off but show up.
He went to great pains to be a human as a guy down the street.
He didn’t need to study, but still went to the synagogue.
He had no need for income, but still worked in the workshop.
He had know fellowship of angels and heard the harps of heaven, yet still went to parties thrown by tax collectors.
And upon His shoulders rested the challenge of redeeming creation, but took time to walk 90 miles from Jericho to Cana to go to a wedding.
As a result people liked Him.
Oh, there were those who chaffed at His claims.
They called Him a blasphemer but never called Him a ‘braggart’.
The accused Him of heresy, but never arrogance.
He was branded as radical but never called unapproachable.
There is no hint He used His heavenly status for His personal gain.
His faith made Him likable, not detestable.
