Reminders

Even now in your fear,doubt and confusion anger being miserable and misunderstood feeling alone and being alone being sick even being sick for a long time being disappointed and depressed feeling unloved even hated upset even highly upset! We will go through some things and situations in this world we never even thought of I may have missed mentioning where you are right now,but just remember Jesus Christ knew our journey and He is aware of where you are right now . At times life gets really hard and our minds start to act in ways we are ashamed of because no matter how hard we try we can’t control them,have you ever been there? I just sit and think sometimes what’s really going on I’m sure you do too! But I’m also aware that Jesus is for us and He will never leave us I’m also sure about His love mercy and grace and without Him we could not possibly make it through these trying times and keep our sanity. I’m learning that no matter where we are we still have reasons to give God praise it may take awhile but it will come, because the Holy Spirit will bring it He also gives us great encouragement and comfort. We have to remind ourselves we are only human and we will never understand things that happen to us family or friends the best we can do is keep trying to pray {that gets hard too} and trying to stay in the word whew some days we don’t feel like doing either but we are still Loved and Adored by our Heavenly Father. A few scripture I find helpful if you’d like leave me a few you use

Isaiah 43

“Do not fear, for I have redeemed you;
    I have summoned you by name; you are mine.
When you pass through the waters,
    I will be with you;
and when you pass through the rivers,
    they will not sweep over you.
When you walk through the fire,
    you will not be burned;
    the flames will not set you ablaze.
For I am the Lord your God

John 11

So when he heard that Lazarus was sick, he stayed where he was two more days

21 “Lord,” Martha said to Jesus, “if you had been here, my brother would not have died.

Oh how often we feel this way Lord if?

2 Corinthians 4

We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.

Romans 8

31 What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? 32 He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things?

37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

We absolutely need Reminders

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

Love in Christ Pat

 

What Are You Looking For?

 What are you looking for?
Are you looking for a friend
that will walk with you until the
end
What  are you looking for
Do you need a healer
with all power in his
hands
What are you looking for
Is it a comforter who
loves and understands
you
What are you looking for
A deliverer that can change
those old habits
and make you brand
new
What are you looking for
Is it a miracle worker
just when you need
one
What are you looking for
If it’s a precious caring understanding Saviour
with all power in His hands
Who still heals the sick today and will totally
deliver you and set you free.
And make your life shine
for others to see
Well you can find all of
that
And more in me,Jesus.
John 1:38 ( a)
When Jesus turned and noticed them following Him,
He asked them,”What are you looking for?
