Assurance/Psalm 23

Psalm 23:1. “The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing. 2. He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, 3. he refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake. 4. Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. 5. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. 6. Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.”

My confidence in in God’s ability and live for me, not in my own abilities, which ebb and tide. I trust my Rock, my Shepherd.

Don’t Count Your Runs

Don’t count your runs until you pick up the bat.

Don’t count your Hershey kisses until you’re out of the sun. 

Don’t count your grass until the weeds are removed.

Don’t count your chickens before they hatch.

All this is true, to be cautious and do one thing at a time in at good order. However, you can always and forever count on GOD. Never count Him out and always count on Him first for everything. He is the great provider, thr trustworthy One. He may be the only One. ❤❤❤

Loneliness

When spouse would rather undress a fantasy girl

And find satisfaction with the unreal airbrushed instead

A part of their relationship dies and lonely lies

And more and more of that trust is dead.

But one thing I remember when these thoughts arise

One simple thought helps me to survive

God can heal any deep inflicted pains

Not in man but my trust in God alone remains. ❤

Trusting God is Knowing God

I do not trust a living soul. Sin is just too accepted and “ok” and lies too accepted as truth to trust another person. I just believe it is foolish to put your trust in any human being. You are just naively sitting there waiting to be proven ignorant and then be wounded when that person screws up. People are selfish, fickle, sinful, lying, harsh, mean, proud, etc. Whatever they want to do they justify it as acceptable and right even if n it is illegal, harmful to themselves or harmful to others. People are not worth trusting and those who trust them will be disappointed at some point. 

Now, that all seems so negative, right? Surely there are good people we can trust, right? Nope. Not one. They may be good or mean well but nobody is 100% trustworthy. Why? Because all humans are flawed since the first sin and lie was accepted by the first society. Sin and lies were accepted as ok. They still are. Truth would set us free if we were willing to throw off the lies and stop sinning. But people like to play. They like their toys and entertainment. People want to do what they want to do, even at the risk of eternity in hell when this life is over. It is pathetic and so very sad.

Now there is hope. There is good and love and truth. Only found one place, which is God. God is trustworthy, the only One who is. He is our hope. He in His role as Father and Lord, Son and Redeemer, or Holy Spirit and caregiver. All roles perfect, all vital, all true and flawless. No lies or sin even tolerated because of His holiness. Not one justification for behavior because He is right and perfect in everything He says and does. Nothing ugly in God. God is trustworthy in our eyes the more He is known. He is the only One like that. God heals and loves and cares for. He provided a way for our flaws to be forgiven and cleansed to stand before Him through paying the sin penalty for our salvation. We had sold our soul to Satan with sin and lies but He bought us back from Satan with the blood of Jesus Christ, anyone who humbly asks Him and then turns away from those sins and lies. God is the Holy loving One. What He says it true. What He does is beautiful. He is everywhere. God is worth our trust and praise and worship forever. He never changes and is as perfect and powerful from one day to the next forever. Praise God for this!❤

God is Way Bigger than Any Hurricane

I wanted the world to know that God is way bigger than any hurricane. A lot of us Christians in Florida and otherwise have been fasting and praying to Almighty God for protection and provision and to break down the hurricane faster and make it not devastating. God answers, and He has already tuned down the power some. God is so very good and answers prayer. Pray with us. Just pray. God is the only  One stronger than a hurricane and faith and prayer releases His power to us. God loves us and you so very much!!❤❤❤

Something Funny about Irma

My mom has been texting all day (she prefers texts) with questions about preparing for Hurricane Irma. After about the fifth question, I asked her one… “Who was it that taught me faith and to trust God, who is way bigger and stronger than Irma?” She stopped texting questions. Lol ❤

No Worries

I am not worried because God is in control. He is bigger than hurricanes and loves me. He is my Heavenly Father and protects and provides for me, his little girl. So no worries. All is well. We will take it as it comes, be ready where we can and trust God with the rest. God is so good!❤❤❤
