Just Want You To Know...

Strength Pictures, Images and Photos

We serve a BIG God my friends! There's no doubt in my heart of this. But sometimes we need to be reminded, our faith needs to be refreshed. As I walked through my devotionals and recorded in my journal, I took notes of a few things that the Lord used to make my heart smile and today as find myself with alot of my mind, I look back at my journal and find much needed encouragement. I wanted to bless you today and share what seems to makes my heart smile every time I turn back to!

We serve a BIG God..the Bible calls Him:

*Invinceble in battle
*My Shepherd
*God of Israel
*King of glory
*Everlasting King
*Alpha and Omega
*King of Kings
*El Shaddai - God Almighty
*El Elyon - The Most High
*El Olam - The Everlasting God
*Yahweh Jireh - The Lord will provide
*Yahweh Nissi - The Lord is my banner
*Yahweh Shalom - The Lord is my peace
*Yahweh Ro'i - The Lord my Shepherd
*Yahweh Shammah - The Lord is there
*Yaheweh Elohim - The Lord, The God of Israel

He's no simple God!!!

His Son Jesus Christ is :

*Our friend
*Witnesses of everything
*First to rise from the dead
*Commander of all rulers
*First and Last
*Holder of the key to death and the grave
*Walks among churches
*Died and rose
*has a sharp double edge sword
*Son of God
*Has eyes like flames
*Holy and true
*Ruler of God's creation
*The Lamb

Poem I found in my devotion:

God's love endureth forever
What a wonderufl thing to know
When the tides of life run agaist you
And your spirit is downcast and low
God's kindness is ever around you
Always ready to freely impart
Strength to your faltering spirit
Cheer to your lonely heart
God's presence is ever beside you
As near as the reach of your hand
You have but to tell Him your troubles
There is nothing He won't understand
And knowing God's love is unfailing
And His mercy unending and great
You have but to trust in His promise
God comes not too soon or too late
So wait with a heart that is patient
For the goodness of God to prevail
For never do prayers go unanswered
And His mercy and love never fail.

As you can see we do serve a BIG God

So next time you feel like the world is crashing down on you, like you can't go on, like giving up, paralyzed by fear, worry or you feel like all hope is lost, if the days seem dark, nothing makes sense in your life, if you feel like your drowning in your troubles, if your dreams have been shattered, if you feel all alone, if you can't seem to fight an addiction, if you can't get over a tragic past, if the shadows of failure hunt you, if your simply tired of trying to fix things on your own

Remember......we cannot do it alone...we need God

SURRENDER your life to Him, your everything, let Him change your life, your thoughts, let Him see you through....ask Him to restore your faith, to heal your heart from all the pain, remember who you are in Him! Don't continue to walk a lonely road, it will only leave you empty. Allow God to change your life.
I know that some of us if not most of us have a longing in our heart and want to have something really special such as a baby, a home. So many have felt the pain of lossing a baby to miscarriage like my good friend Carla who's had 8 miscarriages, some have lost jobs, have broken relatiosships, have been belittled, mistreated, feel the burden of a fallen economy, are homesick and miss the warmth of being close to family, are tired, overworked, feel helpless, lost.

***If you've never given your life to Jesus...I am here to help you do that if you feel the need to do so. For those of us who have been part of God's Kingdom for a little while and feel the need to be refreshed please know that you're not alone and that I would like to lift you up in prayer. We need to uplight each other as we continue to march!

I dedicate this to YOU.....Surrender to God and HE WILL SEE YOU THROUGH!!!!!
