You Can Not Hide From God

Psalm 139.jpgYou have searched me, Lord and you know me. You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar. You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways. Before a word is on my tongue you, Lord, know it completely. You hem me in behind and before, and you lay your hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain. Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? If I go to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there. If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast. If I say, “Surely the darkness will hide me and the light around me,” even the darkness will not be dark to you; the night will shine like the day, for darkness is a light to you. For you created in my inmost being, you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. How precious to me are your thoughts, “God!” How vast is the sum of them! Where I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand–when I awake, I am still with you. If only you, God would slay the wicked! Away from me, you who are bloodthirsty! They speak of you with evil intent, your adversaries misuse your name. Do I not hate those who hate you, Lord, and abhor those who are in rebellion against you? I have nothing but hatred for them, I count them my enemies. Search me, God, and know my heart, test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.                                     (Psalm 139:1-24)

These are wonderful words from the book of Psalm, we can read them many times to realize that we can never run away from God. There is no sin so horrible where his love cannot reach us no matter how are we may try. Jesus is Immanuel which means God is with us, and who is an ever present help in times of trouble. No matter what happens, Jesus is sufficient to provide whatever we need. Jesus is my Rock and Redeemer, the one I need no matter who maybe around me. There have been many times in my life where my pain has been so deep from others, however you Lord understand what I am going thru. When others seems to say things that are untrue, your love blankets me, and I know that I am safe from harm with the everlasting love of Jesus. You know me and you know my heart from within, search me to see if there is anything that should not be within me, so that I can continue to keep you closer to my than my own breath. May I Worship the one True God only the “Great I Am” the one whose love is unchanging from day to day.  My Lord it is better one day in your counts than a thousand elsewhere; I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of the wicked. (Psalm 85:10) These words from the book of Psalm as also my words Oh Lord! my prayer is that I continue to walk humbly with my God and My redeemer, now and forever.

Amen

Praise the Lord

Habakkuk.1As I had my time alone with God I once again came across the book of Habakkuk which is in the Old Testament, where this book ends with Habakkuk’s prayer of praise. Through the fig tree does not bud and there are no grapes on the vines, through the olive crop fails and the fields produce no food, through there are no sheep in the pen and no cattle in the stalls, yet I will rejoice in God my Savior.                    Habakkuk 3:17-18

To Praise our God, the God of Creation the Great I Am during the difficulties that we are facing is never an easy thing to do, however, it is the only right thing to do. You probably saying to yourselves boy is this person a little crazy. When I go thru many storms I try to do this one thing to Turn My Eyes Upon Jesus, look full in his wonderful face, and the things of earth will grow strangely dim in the light of his glory and grace. During my own storms in life when I stop and sing or say these words the focus immediately goes to Jesus and not the problems. I remember how much I am loved, how I am a child of the Most High King, and remember the words that the Apostle Paul had written in the book of Ephesians 2:4-5 But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions–it is by grace you have been saved.

Does God Cares

Ephesians 3.pngThru many tears and searching scriptures many times, is the same old question we seem to be saying does God really care. We at times seem to say does God hear me when I cry myself to sleep, or the frustration I seem to carry inside of me of wondering about this months bills, Does He care when I see the pain in the eyes of my child when the doctors don’t seem to know how to be able to treat her, or does he even care when someone hurts you so deep within your soul, and you simply and truly don’t understand. Does God cares when others treat his world so terribly and where too many people hate, and we all wondering where is this peace on earth we hear so much of.  Let me share with all of you YES GOD CARES! He understand your pain as well as mine, he watch his son being beaten and crucified to die for our sins. If we look into the old testament to Isaiah 41:10 it says: So do not fear, for I am with you, do not be dismayed, for I am your God, I will strength you and help you. I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. I recently read here on the internet about a little girl who’s dog had died, just read the following

Our 14-year-old dog Abbey died last month. The day after she passed away my 4-year-old daughter Meredith was crying and talking about how much she missed Abbey. She asked if we could write a letter to God so that when Abbey got to heaven, God would recognize her. I told her that I thought we could so, and she dictated these words:

Dear God,

Will you please take care of my dog? She died yesterday and is with you in heaven. I miss her very much. I am happy that you let me have her as my dog even though she got sick. I hope you will play with her. She likes to swim and play with balls. I am sending a picture of her so when you see her you will know that she is my dog. I really miss her.

Love, Meredith

We put the letter in an envelope with a picture of Abbey and Meredith and addressed it to God/Heaven. We put our return address on it. Then Meredith pasted several stamps on the front of the envelope because she said it would take lots of stamps to get the letter all the way to heaven. That afternoon she dropped it into the letter box at the post office. A few days later, she asked if God had gotten the letter yet. I told her that I thought He had.

Yesterday, there was a package wrapped in gold paper on our front porch addressed: “To Meredith” in an unfamiliar hand. Meredith opened it. Inside was a book by Mr. Rogers called, ‘When a Pet Dies.’ Taped to the inside front cover was the letter we had written to God in its opened envelope. On the opposite page was the picture of Abbey & Meredith and this note:

Dear Meredith,

Abbey arrived safely in heaven. Having the picture was a big help and I recognized her right away. Abbey isn’t sick anymore. Her spirit is here with me just like it stays in your heart. Abbey loved being your dog. Since we don’t need our bodies in heaven, I don’t have any pockets to keep your picture in so I am sending it back to you in this little book for you to keep and have something to remember Abbey by.

Thank you for the beautiful letter and Thank your Mother for helping you write it and sending it to me. What a wonderful mother you have!!!

I picked her especially for you. I send my blessings every day and Remember that I Love You Very Much. By the way, I’m easy to find.

I AM WHEREVER THERE IS LOVE!!!

With Much Love … ❤ GOD ❤

Don’t Say You’re Too Busy To Share This …

Just Go Ahead And “DO IT”!!!

🙂 “MAY GOD BLESS YOUR LIFE ALSO”!!! 🙂

As I read this letter from a mom and her little girl it brought tears to my eyes while reading it, because all through out scriptures we can see how much God truly cares for his children, I do hope that you enjoy reading it.
