Excepted

img_0476Give 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.

Isaiah 43:1

Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes

Ephesians 1:4

Though there are many changes going on rest in Jesus knowing that He is for you and not against you Hallelujah!

So What

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.

Scripture Romans 4:19 GNT

I Can Only Imagine

I can only imagine oh Lord that day in the garden when You went alone to pray.
I can only imagine the things that pressed You down and weighed so heavy upon You . 

I know You could see us rejecting your Father ,I know You could see us lying and stealing and cheating treating others You love so much wrong.
I know You could see us hating each other as You toiled in prayer .I know You could see us as we all strayed .I know You could see the children being dragged away just as they started to play. I know You felt the pain as Mother’s cried again and again why,why did my child have to die.
I know You could hear the lies we often tell making promises we cannot keep.
I know You see us crying out for peace yet we fail to fall down at your feet. 

I know You can see us being hated because of the color of our skin,we fail to see we’re all kin because from Adam and Eve we did come.
In the garden late that night all of these things pressed You inside and out! I know You could see the violence that’s going on in our world today,and then to our Father You had to say not my will but yours I will obey. They need me Dear Father ,they need me each day so for their sins this price I will pay.

For Christ also suffered once for sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but made alive by the Spirit,

I Peter 3:18 NKJV

For He made Him who knew no sin to  be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.

II Corinthians 5:21 NKJV

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

John 3:16 NKJV

My Current Situation

Well after finally going to sleep around 3:30 AM I’m up at 6:30 AM bathroom run(more like roll in my Mom’s old wheelchair) glad I kept it ! As soon as my foot hit the floor that pain shot through my body whoa it was bad! I made a mad dash for my crackers didn’t see them chips will do,whew I thank God I didn’t fall and for good medince! The word tells us

“We must go through many hardships to enter the kingdom of God,”
Acts 14:22
We never know what form these Hardships will take! Doing things Gods way is always best not easy,because after all Jesus had to go through Gethsemane to get to where God wanted Him (Matthew 26:36~46) So as I’m dealing with this terrible sciatica I’m learning even more about Gods faithfulness He is truly my very present help. The way God does things seem so strange to us because we love to figure things out,and surely we know that ant happening with God. Its only by faith that we learn to lean and depend on God in every situation for He has promised

The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”
Deuteronomy 31:8

“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the Lord .  “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.
Isaiah 55:8-9

So as we go through we have great help the promises of God for every test and trial,I am so grateful to God for His Son my great Saviour Jesus Christ ! As we go through these difficult situations and hardships they do make us strong so hang in there God is not finished with us yet, for when He is we shall come forth bright and shinning enabled to bear one anothers burdens . Thank You Lord !

Endurance

Jesus taught us well! But in the midst of our pain and suffering we tend to forget we PraiseGodmust 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

Endurance

2.

the ability or strength to continue or last, especially despite fatigue, stress, or other adverse conditions; stamina:
Endurance brings results that can come no other way God is in total control and He allows what’s necessary to grow us. Jesus Christ is the Master Sargent He is our perfect example He endured absolute hardness to set us free. We must endure arm our selves with the same mind knowing this
1 Peter 4
12 Dear friends, don’t be surprised at the fiery trials you are going through, as if something strange were happening to you. 13 Instead, be very glad—for these trials make you partners with Christ in his suffering, so that you will have the wonderful joy of seeing his glory when it is revealed to all the world.
God is for us and Victory is ours through it all !
Love in Christ pat
