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

Sorrows

And Jesus answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one deceives you. 5 For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many. 6 And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. 7 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. 8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.

Matthew 24)

As I watched the news and saw the Tsunami caused by the Japanese earthquake,I was in awe at the force water has, it even moved huge ships as if it was a small car. Wooo I just keep thinking of what’s going through the minds of the people there,and what would we do if this happens here. And from what I’ve heard and know it’s possible. Then God‘s Word came to mind concerning the things we are seeing all over the world,and God said these things are just the beginning. Mercy,mercy Lord have mercy on your people that survived and all of your people all over the world. Father help your people to know that all of our protection is found in you. Help us Heavenly Father to recognize you and your Son Jesus Christ,for the things coming will fill our hearts with such fear that our mind can hardly handle it. Help us to know and believe that with you all things are possible,even peace in these trying times. For your Word is going to be fulfilled each and every day,so Father help us to prepare ourselves by calling on the name of Jesus for forgiveness and salvation.Amen

John 12

44 Jesus shouted to the crowds, “If you trust me, you are trusting not only me, but also God who sent me. 45 For when you see me, you are seeing the one who sent me. 46 I have come as a light to shine in this dark world, so that all who put their trust in me will no longer remain in the darkness.

John 14

6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.

27 Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

We have God’s Word and as we stay in his Word our faith gets stronger,it’s a wonderful thing to know that God is real and that Jesus came to rescue us. In order to receive you must first believe.
