Psalm 9:9 hcs

tennessee 087

Whatever  troubles we face there is a place of sanctuary,
a safe place, a place of peace.

We just have to go there.  It is not in some distant land.  It is here where we are.
God will not leave us when times are hard.

There are times I have to get a grip and calm down and let God comfort me.
He is strong and faithful even when I am not.

Do you sometimes have to make a conscious effort to let God comfort you?

Blessings this day of grace,

Psalm 25:8-9 niv

bibles2

Our God is a righteous and loving Father.
He does not send us on our way without guidance.
With prayer, His faithful disciples, and His life instruction manual 
He teaches us and shows us the way that is right.

There are many ways God shows me the way that is right;
at times through something I read or hear,
often through faithful friends,
and sometimes with a quiet peace within.

How does He show you His way?

Blessings this day of grace,

patricia

 

Psalm 149:4 niv

3flowers

We may often think of the LORD only as a stern solemn God
and Judge who rebukes with mighty discipline those who are rebellious.
But He is also our Father, and like all fathers everywhere, He enjoys His children.

Have you thought of God as having a sense of humor and enjoying a hearty laugh?
Why or why not?

Zechariah 4:10 nlt

Věžnice,_small_chapel

Just as the Lord rejoiced to see the rebuilding of the Temple begin,
He is delighted to see us begin our journey, fresh and new everyday.

Do you feel like your small steps do not merit celebration?
Why would you depreciate something that God rejoices to see?

Blessings this day of grace,

Acts 9:11 niv

praying-296517_640When you think your prayers aren’t heard read in Acts 9 about Ananias and Paul.
While Paul was praying the Lord spoke to Ananias, in a vision, and told him to go to Paul.
He told Ananias where Paul was and what he was doing.
Not only did the Lord speak to Ananias
He also spoke to Paul and told Paul that Ananias was coming.

Has there been a time when someone called
or stopped by just when you needed them?
Is it possible the Lord sent them?

Blessings this day of grace,
