call on him while he is near.
Let the wicked forsake their ways
and the unrighteous their thoughts.
Let them turn to the Lord, and he will have mercy on them,
and to our God, for he will freely pardon.
Just stopping in to let you know I’m still alive and trusting in our Heavenly Father I haven’t posted here in awhile but I’m still sharing on other Social Media Sites I love and enjoy making my designs with the word like this. I hope you’re all doing well and enjoy your day.

Give that phrase some thought-really with so much going on in our world so many changes it’s so great to know that Jesus cannot ever be changed! He will love us as we are forever I keep thinking of myself with all of my flaws and hang ups it’s so amazing to be loved and excepted just as I am I don’t need anyone’s approval. God has excepted me in Christ Jesus my mind is being renewed through God’s word and we are being changed daily Praise God. God has made us Holy and excepted by the blood of His dear Son! Can you imagine the chaos if Jesus could be changed by man we would not stand a chance in this world But God! Because God loves us and chose us and called us He said
That is why we never give up. Though our bodies are dying, our spirits are being renewed every day. 17 For our present troubles are small and won’t last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever!
2 Corinthians 4:18
Do not be afraid, for I have ransomed you.
I have called you by name; you are mine.
Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes
Though there are many changes going on rest in Jesus knowing that He is for you and not against you Hallelujah!

19 He was then almost one hundred years old; but his faith did not weaken when he thought of his body, which was already practically dead, or of the fact that Sarah could not have children.
God is so amazing! He can truly do anything without regard God is not limited at all even though our faith sometimes weakens. Wow it seems as though Abraham had fantastic and strong faith but we must look at what God brought him through before he got to this place of faith so that he was not moved looking back is good especially doing times of trials because it gives us insight we can also see what God has brought us through. Our faith does grow stronger as we move through the different trials God has prepared for us He knows how much we can bear! I get so excited thinking about the power and authority of God he has taken everything into consideration concerning us so be encouraged today wherever you are in your walk with the Lord knowing that he will never leave or forget you no matter what age you are nor does it matter what condition your body is in God can do great things for you and through you so stand strong and see the amazing things God has planned for you.

Jesus taught us well! But in the midst of our pain and suffering we tend to forget we must Endure some things. We learn through God’s word how much our ancestors had to Endure and God never failed to bring them through Paul gave us some great advice
2 Timothy 2
3 Endure suffering along with me, as a good soldier of Christ Jesus
I praise and thank God for where I am right now ! I’ve read about my Sisters and Brothers Praising God in The Middle of being made(through pain and suffering) ,but there is nothing like experience, nothing like it . My sister has been through terrible pain quiet awhile and while she talked to me about the terrible pain I could not feel it like she was experiencing it. Then early Monday morning something happened, I’ve been having pain from arthritis before but this pain level was like a 12 or more to me whew! As I was reminiscing with my sister she said that’s the kind of pain I’m going through, while I could see the expression of her pain on certain day’s, the feeling wasn’t there . But God is so good and awesome in the middle of pain until it’s truly mind blowing! I have new medication now praise God and the pain is not as extreme, but what I’m learning even more is that God is with me in this, there is purpose in our pain God set it up that way. As you can recall there are many scriptures concerning the process of pain and in fact Jesus himself endured much pain and rejection so He truly knows what it is like to be a human being.
For God called you to do good, even if it means suffering, just as Christ suffered for you. He is your example, and you must follow in his steps.
1 Peter 2:21 NLT
Establishing and strengthening the souls and the hearts of the disciples, urging and warning and encouraging them to stand firm in the faith, and [telling them] that it is through many hardships and tribulations we must enter the kingdom of God.
Acts 14:22 AMP
And this is part of the purpose
He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. When they are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us. For the more we suffer for Christ, the more God will shower us with his comfort through Christ.
2 Corinthians 1:4-5 NLT
And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.
Romans 8:28 NLT
There is no comfort like the Lords, but after going through some pain and difficulty we can identify with others and show mercy. It’s called sciatica and to much pressure on my right foot causes me to squirm! I’m also learning that you can see dirt at different places in a wheel chair 🙂 🙂

Hello,Hello,Hello all is well today you’re happy dancing around praising God while doing your daily chores! Everyone is doing fine the bills are all paid ! It’s a wonderful day just moving around busily doing dishes, mopping even a little ironing! Life is good, then in a few seconds thing’s change!? The phone rings and you need to go in right away for further test a lump has been found or this is what you hear we’re sorry but there’s been an accident and your child is being air lifted and he/she is in critical condition or while doing the laundry you find a note with kisses all over it and the lipstick is not yours, it reads I love you more and I’m leaving her to marry you !
Wow in a moment we can crash! things happen unexpectedly and we are caught off guard!
But all Praise To God because He is Never Surprised!
What can we do and where do we turn?
It’s always best to turn to our great and faithful Father for His Promises are true
Can a woman forget her nursing child? Can she have no pity on the child she gave birth? Though she may forget,I will not forget you. Isaiah 49:15
God has said, ‘Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.’”
persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed- 2 Corinthians 4:9
This is one of my favorite Scripture
Though the fig tree may not blossom, Nor fruit be on the vines; Though the labor of the olive may fail, And the fields yield no food; Though the flock may be cut off from the fold, And there be no herd in the stalls- Yet I will rejoice in the LORD, I will joy in the God of my salvation. The LORD God is my strength; He will make my feet like deer’s feet, And He will make me walk on my high hills. Habakkuk 3:17-19
We can Rejoice in the midst of our difficulties because God is Greater than anything we face and He will Never leave us. How Awesome Our God Is! So where ever you are Don’t Give Up! God will not Give Up on you.
