The Door of Your Heart

Heavenly Father, our Great and Mighty Lord, Maker of Heaven and Earth; of things seen and unseen. All Glory and Honor belong to You; our Lord of Lords, King of Kings. We are Your creation, made in Your image. You in Your great love for us, knew we would have troubles in our lives. We take control of our lives, instead of relying on You. We are Your children, but sometimes we forget to look to You for guidance and love; which causes us sorrow, pain and grief.
-
But God, You have a plan to bring us into Your guidance, peace and love. You sent Jesus, Your only bgotten Son as a man; who felt the same feelings of sorrow, pain and grief as us. He was tempted in all the ways that we have been; yet He was perfect. He was always in complete reliance upon His Father in prayer. “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” John 3:16
-
Jesus through His love for us died on the cross carrying all of mankind’s sin(causing His heart to burst). God, Your resurrection power raised Jesus up from the grave so that we could commune with Him; as it was planned in the beginning of creation. Jesus is now sitting at the right hand of the Father, interceding for us. Our Heavenly Father sent the Holy Spirit to help us to know Him, love Him and live for Him. He teaches us to be more like Jesus; to convict us when we error in righteousness. He sets our paths straight and leads to us into peace. “But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.” John 14:26
-
Believing and accepting Gods gift of love opens a whole new life for us. We only need to let go and let Jesus reign in our hearts. He will never let us down as our hearts are an open door to Him; the Light of the World. He is our Light. He is our Salvation. He is our Redemption. He is our Bright and Morning Star.
-
He wants you
He needs you
He loves you
He’ll guide you
He died for you
-
Have a wonderful peace filled day, my friend,
In the name of the Father, Son and Holy Ghost
Amen

Christ Strengthens Me

“I can do all things in Christ who strengthens me” Philippians 4:13

Dear Lord, You steady us and You bring us to a place of Contentment and rest.
Oh, how You have brought us to peace. In circumstances beyond our control,
You were there right beside us. loving us, cheering us on. clapping for us …
and all we had to do was to trust you; to give our full hearts to you oh Lord.
You were right there in the moment we needed you every time, with the peace
that passes all understanding. Thank you for touching me. You are the healing
balm to our soul. Simply for the asking. You continue to strengthen us everyday.
In every situation help us oh Lord to keep our eyes on you.
Nothing else matters but your leading.

Mornin Prayer

“But God, who is rich in mercy, for His great love wherewith He loved us,
Even when we were dead in our tresspasses, hath quickened us together with
Christ, ( by grace we are saved )”
Ephesians 2:4-5

but by Me.” (John -14-6)
-
Thank You so much for each new day that You have given to us.
Once, we were restless, and You, in Your mercies, have never failed.
We are renewed each morn, by your grace. Your grace is sufficient for us.
Our penitent heart is the open door to the complete happiness that we long for Lord Jesus.
-
We will praise you all of our days no matter easy or difficult the road. We love you Lord.

Fall

Rest assured that He that has begun
A good work will accomplish that good work in you
till the day of Christ Jesus.

There there child; Life has it’s hard times, but all will be ok.
God has it all planned. You win over anything that comes in your way,
or tries to harm you. Nobody loses with Christ by their side.
Our lives are in His hands. His word we thirst for; as the tree thirsts for rain.
Your roots grow strong and stronger than any enemy with the power and
word of Christ in you. He will bring you to your victory. Hang in there.

Fall time is approaching. The leaves are starting to change color;
a spectacular show. Fabulous,lush, beautiful, and sweet. All the sugar is
being stored now in the leaves; the reds the greens the browns the golds.
Time for resting. Their leaves must fall. The sap stops. The roots of
the tree are growing deeper. The tree stands firm ready for dormancy
storing all it’s starch in it’s sapwood.
The fall rains are a trees welcome kiss; helping the trees roots to
expand into a steady base. Now it will be able to withstand many a storm; for
soon enough; old man winter will come ’round again; with gale force winds.
But It’s root system is strong, for the drinking of rain.
I love rain. I’m waiting for the rain.
I love the sound of rainy days
The rhythmic pitter patter
Of brushes crossing the snare rum
Soothing to my brain
For now I’ll just listen to the rain
