Rocketing Through Space

Rocketing my journey through space over time.

The vessel carrying me needs constant service to continue

Constant reminders of maintenance parameters

Constant upkeep of life support for survival

And I rocket on toward Heaven, my destination.

The life support is Prayer and Bible reading.

And the rocket will get me to my goal on one condition:

I attend to its upkeep and heed the life support.

Praising God Through the Storm

God keeps calming me and I have peace. We await very strong winds but I have peace. Even if all is lost, I have peace. Even when I am tense or stressed for the moment, I have peace. God does that. Only God gives peace. Please pray for Florida’s right now. We are trusting God but many are scared. Funny though, I have peace. God is bigger than hurricanes. God is bigger than life. God loves us. I love Him and have not been able to help but praise Him through the day. He is good. He saves, He protects, He provides. True of tiny life things and huge disasters. It is all about God. Hang on to Him.❤❤❤

Prayer of Safety

Please join me in spirit. Dear Heavenly Father, please keep safe every person in the path of Hurricane Irma. Please remind them that you, Almighty God, are stronger than any hurricane. Please guide and help all those evacuating and protect those staying. May your will be done. Our life is in your loving, capable hands. We love You and praise Your name forever. Thank you for your protection. In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.❤❤❤

Feeling Good Today

Missing my walk ended up being a good thing. Got some sweet time drawing with my daughter and a good talk with my son. And had some great time talking to the Lord Jesus Christ, my very best friend and only Savior, and doing art through quilting, mowing (got rained out yesterday), going to IHOP with my family for brunch, measuring out the back porch with my hubby and planning for them to start working on making a concrete slap patio a sunroom complete with hot tub. I am not sure how this day could have been better. And the most beautiful part of the day was that it was an answer to prayer. I have had several really difficult days, horrible even at times, hard days, ugly even in moments. So I talked to Jesus, my Heavenly Father, about this. I asked Him to help. I was not sure how exactly, but He knows my heart and what I need even before I ask Him. And He gave me a very good day today, a happy husband, a good daughter, a happy son, a wonderful day. This is how good God is and how wonderful it is to have such a beautiful personal relationship with Jesus. He is so much more than my Savior who died and arose to give me a way to be saved and assured of heaven, but He walks and talks with me as I humbly pray, He is my best friend, my confidant, my comforter, the peace and joy and love in my soul. I  so honored that He loves me. I am so honored to be His!! ❤❤❤

Sidewalk is Poured!

So, the concrete for the sidewalk was ordered to arrive tomorrow and my husband and Joe (our handyman) and I were going to mix it and pour it in this heat, and it would have been an all day killer workout but horrible. And honestly, would have probably immobilized my husband (who has bad knees) for a few days. So, this was the anticipation. This morning, the neighbors (fixing their house up to sell it) had a little concrete work done around their pool. So, one conversation later, they are happy for the qork and have all the tools and can pour it today!!! So it is done now!!!! Praise God for providing!!! He is truly great and worthy of praise!!! One more major thing checked off the list and on to roofing and screening in the back porch!!! Woo hoo!!!! God is so good! God always provides!!! ❤❤❤

The Peace of God

As I have aged, like a fine wine or tasty cheese (lol), the peace of God has become such a treasure to me. God, not Buddha, not Allah, not Hindi, not any other false god on the planet promotes and provides eternal peace. God is peace and gives it. And peace is not stillness or quiet or the absence of conflict. Peace is inner assurance and confidence that God is in control and has our eternity secure no matter what storms are raging around us. We have that security by accepting Jesus Christ’s death and resurrection as the sacrifice for our sins. And humbly accepting His necessary gift of Himself makes us secure and loved and provided for and we have this instant peace, security no matter what. Wars could rage around me and the peace would be there. Peace is knowing who God is and that His promises in the Bible are absolutely true. I am His and my confidence lies in Him exclusively. This is peace. It is perfect because from God and mixes with joy to be the internal strength that can do anything through Christ and the Holy Spirit. Nothing seems more precious right now, with maybe the exception of the love and truth which brings it about. These things are our beautiful hope and blessed assurrance. God is so good!!!! I am so thankful!!!! ❤❤❤

Psalm 116

Psalm 116:1. “I love the Lord, for he heard my voice; he heard my cry for mercy. 2. Because he turned his ear to me, I will call on him as long as I live. 3. The cords of death entangled me, the anguish of the grave came over me; I was overcome by distress and sorrow. 4. Then I called on the name of the Lord: “Lord, save me!” 5. The Lord is gracious and righteous; our God is full of compassion. 6. The Lord protects the unwary; when I was brought low, he saved me. 7. Return to your rest, my soul, for the Lord has been good to you. 8. For you, Lord, have delivered me from death, my eyes from tears, my feet from stumbling, 9. that I may walk before the Lord in the land of the living. 10. I trusted in the Lord when I said, “I am greatly afflicted”; 11. in my alarm I said, “Everyone is a liar.” 12. What shall I return to the Lord for all his goodness to me? 13. I will lift up the cup of salvation and call on the name of the Lord. 14. I will fulfill my vows to the Lord in the presence of all his people. 15. Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his faithful servants. 16. Truly I am your servant, Lord; I serve you just as my mother did; you have freed me from my chains. 17. I will sacrifice a thank offering to you and call on the name of the Lord. 18. I will fulfill my vows to the Lord in the presence of all his people, 19. in the courts of the house of the Lord— in your midst, Jerusalem. Praise the Lord.”
