Are you trusting?

Hey Friends,
     I hope you are having a blessed day.  Today I want to give you a quick illustration of trusting.  This may sound silly, but I think it has great truth.  My dog was sitting on one side of the couch recently and I think I must have called him or wanted him to come on my side of the couch and there was something blocking his walking path in the middle seat of the couch which only left him a small spot to walk across the middle seat without falling off.  He thought about coming and then acted like he was not coming with such a small space.  He is funny anyway about how much space he has! :-)  So anyway I reached out my arm and held his collar and he walked across.  You see, he wanted to make sure I had hold of him so that in case he fell, I would hopefully have grabbed him! By the way...just in case you are wondering..he made it across safely :-)   Anyway, the point here is that sometimes I think that we are like that....we cannot move because we feel that we may not be able to do it alone.  But you see, you aren't doing it alone....if it is something that Jesus has laid on your heart to do, then He will be with you and He will be holding your hand the whole way.  And there's something else too, He will make sure you get where He wants you safely.  I don't mean the whole way is going to be easy but that with Jesus holding your hand, you will be able to make it!  Trust Jesus today...with your whole life.  And by the way, if you haven't trusted Him with eternity, do it today.  Give God everything and turn it over to HIM! Ask Him to save you and come into your life today if you haven't done that already! And if you have and you are already a Christian, maybe you have fallen off the path that God wants you following.  Maybe you need a place to turn around...you can turn around and run back to Jesus right now.  He has His arms wide open waiting for you...trust Him with everything you have.  This is something that we all need to work on including myself! Won't you come back to the One who created you, today?!

Psalm 13:5-6- "But I have trusted in thy mercy; my heart shall rejoice in thy salvation.  I will sing unto the Lord, because he hath dealt bountifully with me."

Psalm 28:7- "The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with my song will I praise him."

Election day!

Hey friends,

Very quick today....but just want to say I hope you go out and vote!! Remember to vote based on Biblical principles and what you know God would want for our country.  The decision should be clear.  We need to be praying that our nation goes back to being a nation under GOD! He is almighty, He knows what is going to happen today with the election and He already knows everything that will happen with whomever gets elected!  He does hold the future.  No matter who is elected, He is still in control and He allowed that person to be in office for a reason. God has a plan... a plan for you, a plan for your family, and a plan for our nation.  No matter who is elected...God is still good and still on the throne!

Hope you are all having a fabulous week....let me ask you to pray for me.  The Lord has so graciously blessed me with another opportunity to share my testimony and my hope ministry (I beleive I mentioned this in an earlier post, and now it is only a week away!) with a group of people next week! Please be in prayer that GOD leads me with what to say and that He continues to open up more opportunities!

Psalm 33:12 - "Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance."
