How thankful are you for the things the Lord has given you this year? Are you thankful for the things the Lord has brought you through? How thankful are you for your salvation in Christ Jesus?

I will tell you what I’m thankful for this year and for the rest of my life!

  1. My salvation in knowing Jesus as my Lord!
  2. The seasons of great affliction in my soul as I can only grow closer to the Lord through times like these. They are not pleasant times to be in but the time pouring my heart to the Lord and watching what He does in me and through me is worth it.
  3. The Lord’s healing in my life!
  4. My relationships with family and friends!
  5.  The beautiful world I live in.

Those are just a few of the things I’m thankful for! What about you?

Capture My Heart

Capture my heart once more

For the love of the lost and sin-sick  world.

Capture my heart once more

Fan the flame of Your redeeming love within my heart.

Oh, sovereign Lord hear the cries of the hearts of your people

Hear the cries for healing and restoration for our friends, families and naition.

Oh, sweet spirit of Jesus send your mighty rushing wind upon us this day and may we be changed from the inside out!

Hallelujah! Hallelujah, bless His holy name!

May His praises inhabit the earth both now and forever more!

My Favorite Book-

Mysteries upon mysteries

Fill the pages of the my favorite book

Laughter, joy, sorrow and victory

Fill the pages of my favorite book

It is one of necessity for me

For its pages are filled with treasures

That are not only precious but costly as well

On the pages of this book

One finds not only the description of the depravity of mankind

But also the solution to living this life on earth

For in it contains the very Word of God

Given through people by the power of God

In this book you will find the road map

For a relationship with the Almighty God and yes HE is REAL

Opening up the Bible brings such delight to me

For it is where I learn who I am in HIS eyes.

Flowing Fountain

Flowing fountain of God’s rich mercy

Flow within the hearts of all men

Flowing power of the Most High

Flow within my heart this day

Let the power of the Holy Spirit

Be made evident in my life

Search my heart and reveal what is there

Where there is sin may repentance and forgiveness abound

Where there is hardness of heart

May Your Spirit bring softness to it.

Where there is sadness and grief over the things in my world

Bring a heart of intercession for the nations

In the LORD’s Mighty Name Amen!

Driven To Your Knees

We all have situations in our lives that drive us to get in the presence of God. Whether it is our spouses, kids, parents, the world we all come into contact with difficult and heart-wrenching circumstances the question is who will be our source of comfort and healing in those times. We can choose to the Almighty God or we can cry, be angry and harbor bitterness in our hearts. I have been in both places and let me tell you that is a far better place to be on your knees in communication with the Lord than with nothing to console you at all.

I spent the first 9 years of my marriage learning to go to God for everything and I am still learning. I wanted God to take away the pain and grief in an instant but God did not do that in my case. As the memories of abuse would surface I can remember now that God was right there with me although at the time it did not feel that way. The tears would just keep coming and I did not know when it would end. I am on the other side of that now and I can say that though it was a difficult time for me I would not change it because I got to know THE LORD in a way I never dreamed existed here on this earth.

There is a song I like to sing here are the words below although I do not know who wrote it.

Lord, prepare me to be a sanctuary pure and holy ,Tried and true/ And with thanksgiving I’ll be a living sanctuary for you.

There is something special that happens when we go to God and it is more than just getting to know God: IT IS A SPECIAL THOUGHT TO ME THAT GOD KNOWS ME. HE TOOK THE TIME TO MAKE ME, HE TAKES THE TIME. How many of us can say we take the time for HIM. To Get to KNOW HIM though I am not always physically on my knees I will tell you this that when I do I fall to my face before HIM.

Consider that Circumstance as way to know the LORD in a deeper way than you have ever Known HIM before! YOU WILL BE GLAD YOU DID!

Overflowing Abundance

Overflowing abundance

Is God’s love for me

Overflowing abundance

Is God’s grace for me

Overflowing abundance

Is God’s peace for me

Overflowing abundance

Is God’s hope for me

For His plans are for my good

Not for disaster

Everything has a purpose even the horror in this world

To point us to God and HIS ultimate best for us

Isn’t great to know that He has our best interest at heart!

Praise God forevermore!
