Some Days

Some days—
yes, some days I have to remember
that love is stronger than evil
and that it matters when hearts are broken.
Some days—
Yes, some days–
I have to remind myself that hurts will heal
and that we can overcome in His Strength
not our own.
Some days—
Some days I have to intentionally turn my heart 
to the beauty around me
and hide myself in His Love.
And then once more I am at peace
knowing that 
some days will eventually be turned into One Day.
Joy overcomes.

You Are An Overcomer

Keep calm.

Relax.

Breathe deep.

You are an overcomer as you put your trust in Him.

Whatever you are facing now

is small

compared to our God.

Whatever you are fearful of

is puny

compared to our God.

those thoughts that come

those  critical voices you hear

saying that you are not enough

you will never be enough

are lies.

All lies.

Quiet yourself and breathe in His Promises.

He has promised to never, never leave you

and you can count on Him.

So arise today.

Stand tall and face your fear.

Remember who you are – an overcomer.

And most of all,

Remember who He is.

The Great and Mighty God – your Defender, Provider,

and constant Strength.

He doesn’t change the way people do.

No, He is for you

and because He has already overcome

you have too.

It’s time to praise the Lord and dance for joy.

The victory is yours.

I Wouldn’t Want To Face Life Without It

heaven on earth 1In the midst of a world shaking with fears on every side

where do we find peace?

Is peace even possible?

I watched the unfolding of events as story of Henry Blackaby,

Author of “Experiencing God” hit the news.

Missing for 29 hours.

At first I wondered and feared for his life.

My heart joined with others in prayers for his life.

His life has influenced mine and thousands of others through the years.

Where could he possibly be?

God knows where he is, my heart remembered.

God knows and He gives peace.

As I went about my daily activities I continued to pray

to ask God for safety and protection for Blackaby

and also to receive His amazing peace.

Praying that in the midst of not knowing

he and his family be held by a strong peace that passes all understanding. That we all would.

That’s the peace the God gives.

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, nor let it be fearful. (John 14:27)

Peace that is not dependent upon circumstances

but actually enables one to remain calm in the midst of the most frightful circumstances.

Peace is not an absence of problems but a stronghold in the midst of problems.

So while many prayed

and others searched

the gift of peace was offered again.

Rest in the midst of not knowing.

Calm while the turmoil continues.

Yes, that is the peace that is possible for all.

And it is known only as we receive it from His Hand.

A gift received and treasured.

Well, Henry Blackaby, was not only found but is presently recovering from heart surgery.

Another opportunity to experience God?

Yes and a clear reminder that our God continues to offer His gift of peace to all.

I wouldn’t want to face life without it.

How about you?
