HAPPINESS IS…..

Happiness is having your granddaughters who live far away come to visit.

Happiness is having a grandson and a granddaughter living next door.

Happiness is knowing that your heart is right with God.

Happiness is knowing God is in charge of everything concerning my life.

Casting a Shadow in Darkness

As I read and studied the Bible I kept reading about the secret place.  God talks a lot about the “Secret of the Lord.”  I began to realize that blessings come to those who go to the secret place.   I began to ask God to show me where the secret place was.  The only answer was study.

Many months went by, but it never left my longing to know.  Just imagine God’s Secret Place!  I’ve lived a long time wanting to know the deep things of God.  It wasn’t until a tragedy/trauma came into my life which was to forever change life as I had known for 28 years.    The story is too long to put on my blog, but time stood still long enough for my search to become so intense I felt as though my mind would shut down if I didn’t know the answer.  I wanted to go to the secret place, but I could not find it.  Then one very lonely night God allowed me to know just the beginning.  At that time I realized it was  sacred ground I was plodding on. 

In the Book of Proverbs I read six words which would open up a world I did not know existed.  “God made Darkness His Secret Place.”  There is so much more about this place I wish to write, perhaps in another blogg.

Psalms 91:1 “He that dwelleth in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.”   How precious!! Only God could cast a shadow in the Darkness.

SEARCHING FOR GOD

” AND YE SHALL SEEK ME , AND FIND ME, WHEN YE SHALL SEARCH FOR ME WITH ALL YOUR HEART.” JEREMIAH 29:13

THIS IS A PROMISE I KNOW IS TRUE.  SOMETIME I DO NOT SEARCH FOR GOD WHEN MY HEART IS SO TROUBLED.  I FIND MYSELF TRYING TO WORK EVERYTHING OUT WHEN IT DAWNS ON ME THAT GOD IS RIGHT THERE TO SHOW US THE WAY.   HE LOVES US SO MUCH, HE WANTS US TO SEEK HIM.  WHEN YOU ARE IN LOVE, IT IS SO THRILLING WHEN THE ONE YOU LOVE SEEKS YOU.  GOD IS THRILLED WHEN WE SEEK HIM.  IT SEEMS IMPOSSIBLE THAT WE COULD BE LOVED THAT MUCH BY OUR GREAT GOD, BUT WE ARE.

AT EASE!!!

If everyone out there is tied in knots as I have been over this election, just relax.  Keep telling yourself, “God is in charge.” Most people I say that to want to say that is not true. ” Man decides his own destiny,” is another quote I hear.  I realize man doesn’t know everything, but the Bible tells us everything God wants us to know.  His Word is so powerful.  Remember, “In the beginning was the Word and the Word was God, and the Word was with God. And the Word became flesh?”  God is not going to announce to us from Heaven, but He will let us know when He speaks directly to us as we study the Bible.  So relax.  He has said He will choose whom He will to lift up, and put down whom He wills.  Some time it is for judgement and some time for blessings, but we are still suppose to pray.  Relax, get your Bible, pray, and expect God to do great things.  I am a card carrying Republican, but most of all I am a born again Christian.  That is enough to fill me with the Spirit to show me what He is saying, and what He wants me to do.  At ease, I shall be hearing from God, and so will you.

This is the Day.

“This is the day the Lord has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it.”

My prayer–“Lord may I rejoice in this day which you have made. You made it for me personally. I know this because I am alive. I awakened to the sound of birds and sunshine peeping in my window. I do not know what today holds, but I know you hold it. Thus, I have reasons to rejoice. Please use me today for whatever my purpose for being here. If it is to worship you all day, I will do it as I work. If it is to help someone, let me help with anointed power and concern. If it is to comfort, let me do it with a broken heart. Must I council someone, help me to say only those things you have counseled me with time and time again. May I feed someone, let me do as unto Thee. If I clothe someone, let me do it with the best I have. If I am only to rejoice and be glad, let me do it with faith and not my feelings. My feelings today would not honor you. Faith is “Full Assurance In The Heart.” Faith is one step higher than our feelings.

My prayer–“Lord help me to make that one step.”

God Bless,
Joy

The Secret of The Lord Is With Those Who Fear Him

“The secret of the Lord is with those who fear Him.” The Word of God has been my friend, my guide, my counsellor, my companion, and my very life for thirty seven years. A hunger to know who God really was swept through my being when I became His child at age twenty six.  I am now sixty four.  What a trip it has been.   Naught would I change.

Joy filled my heart as the burden of sin left me. “Therefore if any man be in Christ he is a new creature. Old things are passed away, behold all things are become new.” The reality that I was new on the inside was hard for me to understand, but I knew I was different. For the first time I was truly happy. Sadness had been my theme most of my life.

Reading and studying consumed me. Anything I could find about the Bible, I bought, borrowed, or stole (just kidding). Desperation set in to retain everything I read or heard. It seemed as if I was in a life or death situation. My time was not my own, so every moment I could steal away I read or listen to a tape.  I was shocked at the things I did not know.  There was a way to be fulfilled and for life to mean something.  The more I learned, the more I wanted to know.  I saw the promises of God to those who fear Him.  I must know what it is to fear Him.  Sure enough I found the answer.  The Bible says, “The fear of the Lord is to hate evil.”  My prayer–“Lord, help me to hate evil.”

My precious friend it is worth anything you have to give up to walk with God, and know His promises are yours.

God Bless,

Joy
