30 Days Of…Day 25 – “God Is”

Because we live in a fallen world, I believe it means our total dependence should be on God. He represents the best that could ever happen to us.

He never leaves me when I need Him the most. He is my friend when all my other friends are doing their own things and just living life. He loves me when I feel the most unloved. He is never to busy to take my  call, and he is never to busy to listen to my problems.

God Is….

My Joy.

My Salvation.

My Strength when I am weak.

My Shepherd when I am in need.

My Peace in the midst of turmoil.

My Protector when harm is in my path.

The Lifter of my head when it is bowed down.

The one who dries my tears when hurt has encircled me.

Years ago when I used to sing in the choir at church, there was a song we sang entitled “God Is”. The lyrics to this song sums up what God is to me. The lyrics to the song are:

God is the joy and the strength of my life, He moves all pain, misery, and strife. He promised to keep me, never to leave me. He’s never ever come short of His word. I’ve got to fast and pray, stay in His narrow way, I’ve got to keep my life clean everyday; I want to go with Him when He comes back, I’ve come too far and I’ll never turn back. God is… God is my all in all.

What is God to you?

 

30 Days Of…Day 5 – “It’s Never Too Late”

Have you ever thought about doing something different like starting your own business or writing a book. Then, you stop and think about and talk yourself out of doing it because you think, I can’t do that, I’m too old to do that, or because I think I’m too old I don’t know how to do that. Surely you have said that to yourself many times, because I have found myself saying those very words.

It’s never too late to create dreams that can come true. You can start that business, you can write that book, you can go back to school, you can join that gym and work that body out, or you can go back packing in Europe.  Know that whatever dreams you have can always be achieved if you only try.

I know that  it can be done because I’ve done things I thought I could not do. I went back to school at age 39 to finish my Bachelor’s degree. I took a kick-boxing class in my late 40’s and at age 55 I walked/jogged in my very first 5K. To me that is accomplishment.

It is never too late to expand your horizons. All it takes is to dig deep into yourself and find that creative energy that God has placed in you and put it work.

Philippians 4:13 (Amplified)

“I have strength for all things in Christ Who empowers me [I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him Who infuses inner strength into me; I am self-sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency].”

Get out there and start doing it!
