Good Morning and welcome to our new forum. I pray God's blessing on this site. And I wonderful day for each of you.

VERSE:
   Taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the man who
takes refuge in him.
    -- Psalm 34:8
      THOUGHT:
   Some aspects of faith are indescribable: they can only be
experienced and known by doing them. Taste the Lord. Sample his
goodness. Lean on his grace. Take refuge in his care. We are
blessed to find him near and take our refuge from life's greatest
dangers and death's greatest fears.

PRAYER:
   Help me, dear Father, to know you better. Open my heart, dear
Lord, so that I will more fully entrust myself to your care. Open
my eyes to see just how gracious you are - not to impress me, but
to share in your grace. Thank you for your goodness. In Jesus'
name. Amen.

Good Morning eveyone! Rainy day here in W. Tn. The topic today is a little different...but it's a question a lot of have..what is meant by the "fear of God". Star 

                                                      October  9, 2009


VERSE:
   Fear the LORD, you his saints, for those who fear him lack
nothing.
    -- Psalm 34:9
      
THOUGHT:
   "Fear of the LORD" is one of the great themes of the Old
Testament. The phrase is particularly hard to translate, especially
in light of the repeated message of the Bible to "fear not" and
John's reminder that "perfect love casts out all fear." It means
more than "hold God in reverence." Generally, "fear of the LORD"
means that we remember our place in the order of things. We know we
are deeply loved by our holy Father in heaven. We recognize that we
are weak and sinful in comparison and are saved by God's mercy and
grace. We acknowledge that his majesty and holiness are far beyond
us and that we pale in significance before God. We come to God
acknowledging our need for him and our unworthiness to demand
anything from him. The incredible reality is that when we approach
God with this sense of awe and profound respect, he in turn
welcomes us with open arms and brings us close. (See Isaiah 57:15)

PRAYER:
   Holy and Righteous Father, God Almighty, thank you for your
mercy, grace, and forgiveness. Thank you for your love,
faithfulness, and justice. I come to you on my knees, recognizing
that you are holy, majestic, awesome in power, and righteous in all
that you do. Without your grace and the gift of your Spirit, I know
I could not come into your presence with such boldness. Righteous
Father, forgive me for my sins and empower me to be a person of
integrity and grace. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

Good Morning...and thank you all for your support.Star
              October 10, 2009


VERSE:
   The lions may grow weak and hungry, but those who seek the LORD
lack no good thing.
    -- Psalm 34:10
      
THOUGHT:
   While even the fiercest hunters cannot ensure their security and
nourishment, those whose hunger is for God will find themselves
nourished, blessed, and sustained.

PRAYER:
   Thank you, Father, for the promise that you will never leave me
or forsake me even though friends and partners may betray and
forsake me. I confess that it is sometimes hard to fully
comprehend, much less believe, that you are always faithful.
Confusing and hurtful times come and I waver in my confidence in
your grace. Please forgive me and renew my hope. I do believe, dear
Father, that you love me like no one else can. I do believe,
Almighty God, that you care about my wounds and worries. I recommit
my heart this day to trust in your daily care, provision, and grace
for me. In Jesus' name. Amen.

Good Morning. This is one of my favorite scriptures. My daughter gave me this verse when I first started this cancer journey. It really helped to get me through all this. I hope it does the same for you.

                                    October 11, 2009


VERSE:
   "Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be
terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be
with you wherever you go."
    -- Joshua 1:9
      
THOUGHT:
   While these words were spoken to Joshua when he took over for
Moses, they are also applicable to us. Take a moment and read Psalm
139 out loud and see that God's promise to be with us is for all
who truly call upon him. Listen to Jesus' words in Matthew
28:18-20, as he promises his disciples to "be with them always,
even to the close of the age." Remember God's promise, reiterated
from an Old Testament blessing in Hebrews 13:5, "Never will I leave
you, never will I desert you!" Let's be strong; our God, our
Father, our Shepherd is always near, even if it doesn't seem so. We
cannot go anywhere without his presence being near us and in us. We
are not alone. We don't have to be afraid. In fact, not even death
can separate us from his love (see Romans 8:35-39).

PRAYER:
   Be near, dear Father, not only in your promise and not only with
your presence, but also in my awareness. I need to know you are
near when I respond to the incredible opportunities before me. I
need to be confident in your help and sustaining love as I face the
rigorous challenges in my life. I trust in your unfailing love. In
Jesus' name. Amen.

I can read the eighth chapter of Romans and be so spiritually nourished, my cup runs over. The exhortation! The promise of salvation, the gift of Grace, the promise of being with him always, of never being separated from his love!

What a Joy! Amen and Amen!

Love in Christ,

Lillie

VERSE:
   Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path.
    -- Psalm 119:105
      
THOUGHT:
   So often, those of us who have received the blessings of faith
and the guidelines of the Word of God don't fully appreciate them.
Can you imagine what it is like to try to define ones worth,
clarify ones values, and establish ones sense of purpose without a
standard of truth? Imagine what it would be like to be lost without
a map and without a compass? Remember what it was like to wake up
in an unfamiliar place as a child in the pitch black darkness
totally disoriented? We don't have to worry about that now, do we?
God's Word -- both Scripture and his Son -- light our dark paths
and show us the way home!

PRAYER:
   O LORD, my Abba Father, thank you for not leaving me in
darkness. Your Word lights my path and your Son, the Light of the
World, lights my life. Thank you for not leaving me alone to find
my way. In Jesus' name. Amen.

Dear Carol,

I know how important intecessary prayer is. I thank God that the miles between you and us does not hinder prayer.

You are a special person and may the Holy Spirit be with you and in you as you travel through this "rough patch".

Psalm 30:5 For his anger endureth bur a moment; in his favor is life; weeping may endure for a night, but "JOY" cometh in the morning.

Thank you for the Spiritual Food you offer us each day.

Love in Christ,

Lillie

                                              October 14, 2009
 

 I Am a 'Kept' Woman?
You see, there were a few times when I thought I would lose my mind,
But GOD
kept me sane. (Isa. 26:3)
There were times when I thought I could go on no
longer,
But the LORD
kept me moving. (Gen  28:15)
At times, I've wanted to lash out at those whom I felt had done me wrong,
But the LORD
kept my mouth shut. (Ps. 13)
Sometimes, I think the money just isn't enough,
But GOD has helped me to
keep the lights on, the water on,  The car paid, the house paid, etc.., (Matt. 6:25 -34)
When I thought I would fall,
HE
kept me up.
When I thought I was weak,
HE
kept me strong! (I Pet. 5:7, Matt.. 11:28-30)
I could go on and on and on, but I'm sure you hear me!
I'm blessed to be '
kept.'
Are you...
I'm Kept by the Love and Grace of God!
I am indeed a 'kept' woman and praise God for it!

                                          God Bless!

faithfulness. We are blessed because God is God.

PRAYER:

answering my prayers, and coming down to save, comfort, and bless.
In Jesus' name. Amen.

Good Morning!!
Please everyone, feel free to share your faith with us.!!!Star
 
                                     October 16, 2009


VERSE:
   The righteous cry out, and the LORD hears them; he delivers them
from all their troubles.
    -- Psalm 34:17
      
THOUGHT:
   Deliverance! A great theme of the Bible is that God is a God of
deliverance who keeps his promises and faithfully shares his grace,
mercy, and justice. Let this promise stir you to righteous living
and to cry out to God in all your troubles. One way to do this is
to read through the Psalms regularly, letting these inspired words
from so long ago offer a rich topography of prayer from which you
can call to God. Whether you use the Psalms or not, however, cry
out to God with the praises, questions, and wounds that life
brings. Let his presence be real to you and your heart open to him.

PRAYER:
   Father, our world needs your deliverance. In your majesty and
power, please destroy the plans of the wicked. In your mercy and
grace, please raise up your people who find themselves facing
hardship and trouble. In Jesus' name. Amen.
