He Will Hold You Up


This photo of my newest great-grandchild and her father spelled trust to me the moment I looked at it. It reminded me of Isaiah 41:10…“Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.”

From the time of your birth to life’s final day, He will hold you up. Happy Sunday.

But Do We?


“In God We Trust” appears on most if not all American currency. But do we?

Trusting God completely means having faith that he knows what is best for our lives. But do we?

Surrendering to him brings freedom not bondage. But do we?

These are not just mere words but a way of life.

We all have choices.  It is good to trust and surrender completely.

We all have freedom to make the right choices. But do we?

Happy Sunday.

 

 

Complete Trust


Is there anything more comforting in this world than to be able to trust completely?

I am starting out my brand new year once again placing complete trust in God because I know that I can trust him with my life and all its happenings. I sometimes get excited waiting to see what He has in store for me next.

When we trust in the Lord completely it is not difficult to get excited about what He does in our lives. I have often said to Him, “Lord, I hope you know what you are doing in this situation because I sure don’t.” And lo and behold, the perfect solution is manifested in ways that I never would have expected…or sometimes, even chosen.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

The Bible on Power


Power is a powerful word…the very sound of it can sometimes evoke the feeling. Here are a few of many scriptures that give meaning to the word.

“My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” 2 Corinthians 12:9

I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being…Ephesians 3:16

For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline. 2 Timothy 1:7

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:13

Happy Sunday.

Independence Day


Just as we here in Canada celebrated our July 1st Canada Day, so our neighbors to the south in the USA are celebrating this day, July 4th, their Independence Day.

Happy Fourth of July to my American friends, relatives, and fellow bloggers. Be blessed.

A Question of Trust


A question I often get asked is, “How did you get such deep faith?” The answer has to be that I seem to, without knowing it, have trusted God all of my life…and with my life.

Yesterday, I came upon this scripture which seems to sum it up perfectly for me: “Yet you brought me out of the womb; you made me trust in you even at my mother’s breast. From birth I was cast upon you; from my mother’s womb you have been my God.” Psalm 22: 9-10 NIV

I’m not sure that any better explanation is available. In whom do you put your trust? Happy Sunday.

 

Six Little Stories


Don’t you love when something unexpected comes your way? While pondering my next daily blog, this email came my way to save the day. I love when that happens!

“SIX LITTLE STORIES” – well worth the 30 seconds to read!

{1}  Once all villagers decided to pray for rain.  On the day of prayer all the people gathered,  but only one boy came with an umbrella.  That’s FAITH. 
 

{2}  When you throw babies in the air,  they laugh because they know you will catch them.  That’s TRUST. 
 
{3}  Every night we go to bed  without any assurance of being alive the next morning,  but still we set the alarms to wake up.  That’s HOPE.
 
(4}  We plan big things for tomorrow  in spite of zero knowledge of the future.  That’s CONFIDENCE. 
 
{5}  We see the world suffering,  but still we get married and have children.  That’s LOVE.
 
{6}  On an old man’s shirt was written a sentence  ‘I am not 82 years old;  I am sweet 16 with 66 years of experience.’  That’s ATTITUDE.
Have a happy day and live your life like the six stories.
When I was a child, I thought nap time was punishment. Now it’s like a mini-vacation.
