Thank You God

The moment we become grateful, we actually begin to ascend spiritually into the presence of God. The psalmist wrote,

"Serve the Lord with gladness; come before Him with joyful singing. . . . Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise. Give thanks to Him, bless His name. For the Lord is good; His lovingkindness is everlasting and His faithfulness to all generations" (Psalm 100:2, 4-5).

It does not matter what your circumstances are; the instant you begin to thank God, even though your situation has not changed, you begin to change. The key that unlocks the gates of heaven is a thankful heart. Entrance into the courts of God comes as you simply begin to praise the Lord."

— Francis Frangipane

Held Close

He Holds You

God never leaves you alone...

He never forgets about you...

He looks out for you and takes care of you.

You are more important than the birds

He feeds and provides for.

Trusting Him means to rest in Him

as your shield, your covering, your provider,

your defender and your friend.

It means freedom from worry, anxiety and fear.

It means peace to your mind and joy to your soul.

Come to Him; He is waiting...

Lean on Him; He is strong...

Talk to Him; He is listening...

Depend on Him; He will never let you down.

He holds you within the hollow of His hands

to keep you keep you safe...

to deliver you from all your fears.

O How He Loves You and Me

He brought this song to my heart today
when asked to remember a sweet lady in prayer.
Isn't it wonderful when the Holy Spirit just brings
something thats just perfect ,
from Gods heart
in His perfect timing,
for the particular circumstance.

I hadn't heard or sung this song in years,
and the Spirit found this in me and brought it to the surface
to sing into her spirit through a prayer for her
though she is miles and miles away
and I've never met her personally.
He amazes me and His love overwhelms me...\0/

In His love & friendship,

Cleansing Grace

Our Saviour kneels down and gazes upon the darkest acts of our lives. But rather than recoil in horror, he reaches out in kindness and says, ‘I can clean that if you want.’ And from the basin of his grace, he scoops a palm full of mercy and washes our sin. – Max Lucado

~Thank you my Beloved~

Thank you...

I'm returning to give Him thanks...
Bill is back at his home and is
thankful to God and for your prayers..
God touched him.

And I am thankful too..
so very much...
Mercy found him.

I thank you too for your love, care and prayers
that rise like incense before His throne.

In His love,

In Stormy Winter Days...

Thinking of you..
lifting you before our Lord.
Praying for protection,
and a drawing closer
to our Lord
and to one another
in these days...

With all my heart...Deborah \0/
