“I Win”

It’s been quite a while since I have posted any articles on WordPress and this is my first in 2015. However, with all the unrest going on in our nation right now, I felt it appropriate to post this gospel song by John P. Kee, entitleld “I Win”. I believe with the Lord on our side we can win any battle we encounter. It won’t be easy, but God promises He will never leave or forsake us. I choose to believe I win, because Jesus won for me on the cross.

Let us look to the hills where all our help comes from. I pray that you will enjoy this song as much as I do. I play it often when the enemy wants to try to worm its way in.

Don’t Give Up

Life is full of struggles, obstacles, and hurdles, but never give up and never stop praising and praying. Kurt Carr and the Kurt Carr Singers sing a song entitled “Between Here and There”. This song from his new CD Bless This House, talks about what we can and should be doing between here and there in the struggles. He says prayer and praise got him from here to there. I believe prayer and praise are two very powerful defenses against the enemy who seeks to attack us in any way he can.

 

Eyes of the Heart

In this new year 2013 I want the eyes of my heart to be opened to see God and to experience Him to the fullest. In Psalm 51 verse 10 (Amplified), the writer says “Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right, persevering, and steadfast spirit within me.”

When our hearts are clean the Spirit of the Living God can abide within then we will be able to see with the spiritual eyes of our heart and not the fleshly eyes.

I want to inspire and encourage everyone to allow the spiritual eyes of your heart to see what God has planned for you this year. Michael W. Smith says it so beautifully in this song “Open the Eyes of My Heart”.

Old Things Passing On…New Things Moving In

Happy New Year. Freedigital photos

As 2012 comes to a close, I find myself thanking God for another year He has seen me through. I thank Him for good health. I thank Him for a place of employment. I thank Him for my home. I thank Him for old friends and new friends. I thank Him for my mother and how well she is doing. I thank Him for allowing me to venture into new ideas and creative endeavors. I thank Him that although 2012 had many obstacles, struggles, and hurdles, I still found myself growing.

Because He is my Shepherd I know that I shall not want of any spiritual blessings. Because He is my Shepherd He has allowed me to see 365 sunrises and 365 sunsets. Because He is my Shepherd He has allowed me 52 weeks of going out and coming in. And because He does not slumber or sleep He has blocked every evil force the enemy has thrown in my pathway. Thank you Lord for leading me down the paths you wanted me to go down and not the paths I wanted to go down.

Thank you Lord for continuing to walk with me and talk with me along the way and thank you Lord for 2012 and all that came with it.

Thank you in advance for what you are going to do in 2013!

2012 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The new Boeing 787 Dreamliner can carry about 250 passengers. This blog was viewed about 1,200 times in 2012. If it were a Dreamliner, it would take about 5 trips to carry that many people.

Hope

“Let Your mercy and loving-kindness, O Lord, be upon us, in proportion to our waiting and hoping for You.” Psalm 33:22 (AMP)

Hope in Hebrew is yachal (phonetically pronounced yaw-chal’). It means to wait, to have hope, to wait expectantly. Waiting never seems to be the easiest thing for us to do. We live in an instant microwave society and expect we instant results for everything. We are a “I want mine and I want it now” society.  When we choose not to wait expectantly on the Lord, our hope becomes impaired.

Jesus is our reason for hoping and waiting. Hope in Him helps us to overcome any amount of doubt we have about our circumstances. When we hold to our hope and don’t let go, it is a supreme act of faith.

Reasons to have hope in God:

• God spoke and the world came into existence

• He is our Shepherd

• His eye is on all those who fear and revere Him

• He is our help and our shield

• He is faithful in everything

• He is strong and mighty

• He always in control

 I waited patiently and expectantly for the Lord; and He inclined to me and heard my cry. Psalm 40:1 (AMP)
