Shelter From The Storm

"Each person is tempted when they are dragged away by their own evil desire and enticed. After desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full grown, gives birth to death." What may first seem harmless can soon spin out of control and wreak havock. But when temtation threatens, God offers us shelter from the  gathering storm.

The Law Of Christ

We carry his cross every day so that we can bear one another's burdens and reflect Christ's light to others so that they may be blessed. Carry each other's burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ. Galatians 6:2

The Light In The Heart..

The most truly generous persons are those who give silently without hope of praise or reward. A kind gesture can reach a wound that only compassion can heal. Always have a willing hand to help someone, you might be the only one that does.

Do Your Part!!

If you planted hope today in every hopeless heart, If you caused a laugh that chased some tears away, If someone's burden was lighter because you did your part , Then your day was well spent :)

Everyone Has Something, Yet Still, God Has Us All!!

God is saying to you today, "Everything will work out. I'm in complete control. I know what the medical report says. I know what the financial statement looks like. I see the people who are coming against you. I know how big your dreams are. And hear Me clearly; I will not fail you." Spiritual Inspiration :)

Leave The Light On

Energy and time are precious, limited entites. Therefore, you need to use them wisely, focusing on what is truly important. As you walk close to Me, saturating your mind with Scripture, I will show you how to spend your time and energy. My word is a lamp to your feet; My Presence is a light for your path.

Boil Water Notice

The boil wtaer notice for Improve Water Association has been lifted.

NEED A FRIEND?

Jesus knows the worst about you, yet He believes the best. Why? Because He sees you not as you are but as you will be when He gets through with you. WHAT A FRIEND WE HAVE IN JESUS!

Who Are You Talking With the Most?

Just as we would listen and speak to our natural parent(s), our heavenly Father desires that we do the same. "Continue in prayer, watch in the same with thanksgiving" (Colossians4:2).

Take a second and complete a self-evaluation. How often do you talk with your Father? How often do you stand still to listen to your Father through His word?

Prayer is a lifestyle, not an emergency exit! DON'T WAIT FOR A CRISIS TO OCCUR TO TALK WITH YOUR FATHER.

Have a little Faith in Yourself!!

"We gain strength, and courage, and cofidence by each experience in which we really stop to look fear in the face,,, we must do that which we think we cannot." Eleanor Roosevelt

BRING IT ON!!

BEING HAPPY is not the absence of problems in your life, it's the ability to deal with them. We have to learn to appreciate the challenges we face for what they offer us. Much the caterpillar, we emerge on the other side of difficulties STRONGER, BETTER, and MORE BEAUTIFUL! Start by realizing that it's never the size of the problem that is important but actually our perception of it, which WE have the ability to CHANGE!

I Will Heal You and Give You Strength

Even to your old age and gray hairs I am he. I am he who will sustain you. I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you.  ISAIAH 46:4

Unbreakable!!

Stop worrying about what you don't have and start thanking God for what you do. We are all blessed in different ways and it's up to you to recognize your blessings.

Open Your Mind And Heart

Receive My Love in full measure. This is an act of faith. The art of receiving is also discipline: training your mind to trust Me, coming close to Me with confidence. Remember that the evil one is the father of lies. Fight back against these lies! Do not let them go unchallenged.  Draw near to Me and My Presence will envelop you in Love.

Don't forget to take your medicine

Are you feeling stressed? Is your mind besieged with worries? Are you on overload?

If you're on overload, ask God for wisdom to change your schedule. When the problem you're facing is too big for you to handle, give it Him - and don't take it back. Let Him think His thoughts through you and allow His peace, power, and patience to take change of your mind.

Always remember to take your daily prescription: the Word of God!

"Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you [1Peter 5:7]

 

The Navigator of Life

But He was pierced for our 'rebellion', crushed for our 'sins'. He was beaten so we could be 'whole'. he was whipped so we could be 'healed'. All of us, like sheep, have strayed away. We have left God's path to follow our own path. Yet the Lord laid on Him the sins of us all.

Do you not care enough that Jesus suffered, bled and died for your sins?

What path will you choose today - your own or His?

Slow It Down...

Take time to rest by the wayside, for I am not in a hurry. A leisurely pace accomplishes more than hurried striving. When you rush, you forget who you are and Whose you are. Remember that you are royalty in My kingdom. Psalm 37:7

I'm always with You!

The One who goes ahead of you, opening the way, is the same One who stays close and never lets go of your hand. I am not subject to limitations of time or space. I am everywhere at every time, ceaselessly working on your behalf. That is why your best efforts are trusting Me and living close to Me.

Just Be

"Seek ye first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness and ALL these things shall be added unto you"...[Matthew 6:33]

 

As believers in Christ, we often find ourselves trying to "do, do and do" and still unsatisfied in life. However, when we comply by faith to the Word of God and walk in the likenss He's made us, out of our being will come our doing. Whether in the lion's den, the prison cell, the belly of a fish- wherever you are, just be the person God purposed you to be.

TRUE SATISFACTION IS IN HIM AND NOT THEM!

Often asking the question:

 

"Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today and forever" (Hebrews 13:8)

Because you have a past...[You can't go back and erase any of the wrong that you've done, but He can!]

Because you need a friend...[Jesus knows the worst about you, yet He believes the best. What a Friend!]

Because He holds the future...[Who else are you going trust in this world to keep you safe and secure - today, tomorrow, and for all eternity?]

He knows the plans He has for you-good and not for evil....Do you still wonder WHY YOU NEED JESUS?

Yes, He loves even "you"!

WHY ARE YOU WORRYING ABOUT IT?

"Let Him hav all your worries and cares." (1Peter5:7 TLB)

Do we trust Jesus only for salvation and in all other areas, we aim to figure it out ourselves? This lifestyle often leads to our becoming anxious, restless, nervous, worried, grouchy and somewhat like an addict---needing a fix. Life goes better when you decide to stand on God's Word and trust Him to take care of you.

"Worry is wasting today's time, and cluttering up tomorrow's opportunities with yesterday's troubles."

STOP WORRYING ABOUT IT!

 

Hold Nothing Back

That's what we should consider, because God gave all. When we give ourselves to God we are offering a priceless gift. Will we give God only a little here and a little there, or will we break ourselves open and pour ourselves out to God? Hold nothing back!

Dreams Do Come True

When you trust God to fulfill the promise He's given you, all the forces of darkness cannot stop God from bringing your dreams to pass.

The Benefit Of The Present

I cannot add days to my life through worrying. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble in its own. see Matt. 6:27,34 Dear God, give us peace and joy today, even if we are uncertain about the future. Amen.

Armor Of God

Whether the waters or fire, know that with God, you won't be consumed. Isaiah 43:2

Take Your Medicine

If you do a good deed for other people you end up healing yourself too. Because a dose of love is the best spiritual cure.

Sometimes We All Need A Change

It's never too late to start over. If you weren't happy with yesterday, try something different today. Don't stay stuck. Do better.

Dont Be Selfish

 Dont try to impress others. Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourselves. Dont look out only for your own interest, but take interest in others too. You must have the same attitude that Jesus Christ himself had.

Be Consistent In Your Walk With Me

My continual Presence is a promise, gauranteeing that you never have to face anything alone. Stumbling around in a stupor, unaware of My loving Presence grieves Me! When you walk through the day in trusting dependence on Me, My aching heart is soothed. Gently bring your attention back to Me whenever it wanders away. I look for persistence-rather than perfection-in your walk with Me.

Low Water preasure

Due to repairs being completed on one of the tanks you may be experiencing low water pressure. Your water should be back to normal soon. We do apologize for the inconvenience .

Problems Are A Part Of Life

They are inescapable. You tend to go into problem-solving mode and this distances you from me. Do not let fixing things be your priority. Talk with Me, seek My perspective, and ask Me to show you what is truly important. Remember that you are en route to heaven, and let your problems fade in the Light of eternity.

UNTHANKFULNESS

Rejoice evermore. Pray without ceasing. In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18...Central focus: I must learn to count my blessings instead of focusing on my problems. Through God's grace I will become a truly thankful person.

Serving God With Our Prayers

When we make it our aim to serve God through praying faithfullly , we're taking part in a beautiful privilege-where at any moment we may be given a front-row seat to a miracle! The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results. James 5:16

Desire is the Key

Lengthen your cords, and strengthen your stakes.  Isaiah 54:2... You are the way you are because that's the way you want to be. The desire to change is the key to growth in any area of life.

Daily Prayer

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I can not change, courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference, Amen.

Guarded!

Why worry? Why fear? Why fret? Remember, Your Father has given you the assurance of protection. He says through His servent David, "The Lord shall preserve you from all evil; He shall preserve your soul. The Lord shall preserve your going out and your coming in from this time forth and even forevermore". Psalm 121:7-8 (NKJV)

Is He Your Father? HE HAS YOU!

Do Not Worry About Tomorrow

My grace is sufficient for you, but its sufficiency is for only one day at a time. When you worry about the future, you heap day upon day of troubles, staggering under this heavy load which I never intended you to carry. But, Trusting Me brings you directly into My presence. Enjoy My Presence continually by trusting Me at all times. Matthew 6:34

In Me You Have Everything

It is impossible for you to have a need that I can not meet. The world is still at My beck and call, though it often appears otherwise. Do not be fooled by appearances. Things that are visible are brief and fleeting, while things that are invisible are everlasting.

Trust In Your Faith

Many times when God isn't changing your circumstances it's because He's mostly concerned with changing You within your circumstance. God has a purpose for everything , you just have to trust in Him and have a little faith.

In Jesus' name , Amen

Always pray to have eyes that see the best in people, a heart that forgives the worst, a mind thats forgets the bad, and a soul that never loses faith in God.

He's Got The Whole World In His Hand's

There's no storm that God won't carry you through. No bridge that God won't help you cross. No battle that God won't help you win. No heartache that God won't help you let go of. He is so much bigger than anything you will face today. Leave everything in His hands and embrace this day confidently knowing that HE WILL take care of you.

His Pain Is Our Gain

Surely he took up our pain and bore our suffering, yet we considered him punished by God, stricken by him, and afflicted. But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed.

Patience Is Faith

Patience with family is love, patience with others is respect. Patience with self is confidence and patience with God is faith.

Leading The Way

Trust in the Lord with all thine heart and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths.  Proverbs 3: 5-6

How Great Thou Art

Only GOD can turn a MESS into a message, a TEST into a testimony, a TRIAL into a triumph, a VICTIM into a victory. Thats just a few of the many many miracles of GOD :)

I Am Weak But He Is Strong

Every weakness you have is an opportunity for God to show His strength in your life...My Grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness. 2 Corinthians 12:9

Your Never Alone

God never sends you into a situation alone. God goes before you. He stands beside you. He walks behind you. Whatever situation you have right now, be confident, GOD IS WITH YOU! 

Save Your Energy

Worrying is wasting energy on things you can't control,,,Leave everything in God's hand. THINK LESS PRAY MORE. Thought for the day:)

School Is In

When you are going through difficulty and wonder where God is, remember that the teacher is always quiet during the test. Thought for the day

 

A Reflection

Be a reflection of what you'd like to see in others. If you want love, give love. If you want honesty, give honesty. If you want respect, give respect. You get in return, what you give. Thought for the day:)

Do Not Be Afraid

But He said to them, "Why are you fearful, O you with little faith?" Then He arose and rebuked the winds and the sea, and there was a great calm." Matthew 8:26

Beyond Our View

Sometimes we struggle to see or understand what life is throwing at us today. We live by faith, not by sight.  When we trust God with our day as well as our unseen tomorrows, we dont need to worry about anything life throws at us. We walk with Him and He knows what is ahead; He is strong enough and wise enough to handle it...2 Corinthians 5:7

How are you looking today

Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down,shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use , it will be measured to you. Luke 6:38

 

The Anchor And The Cross

We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. Hebrews 6:19

Desire To Change

Discipline always seems painful rather than pleasant at the time, but later it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it.        Hebrews 12:11

Quench My Thirst

As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you, my God  Psalms 42:1-2

Free Indeed

If the son sets you free,you will be free indeed. John 8:36

Repeat After Me

Take control of what I say, O Lord, and gaurd my lips. Psalm 141:3

At risk of falling

If you think you are standing firm, be careful that you don't fall!

1 Corinthians 10:12

Walk the Talk

"What does the Lord require of you?  To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with you God"

 

Micah 6:8

I have learned to be satisfied with the things I have and with everything that happens. Philippians 4:11
