God is watching over you

Here is a song from 1870 to remind us that we are never alone. If you are feeling unsure of what is around the corner…soak in these words…and rest in the assurance that God is guiding you to where you need to be.

Precious promise God has given
To the weary passerby,
On the way from earth to Heaven,
“I will guide thee with Mine eye.”

When temptations almost win thee
And thy trusted watchers fly,
Let this promise ring within thee,
“I will guide thee with Mine eye.”

When thy secret hopes have perished
In the grave of years gone by,
Let this promise still be cherished,
“I will guide thee with Mine eye.”

When the shades of life are falling
And the hour has come to die,
Hear thy trusty Pilot calling,
“I will guide thee with Mine eye.”

-Nathaniel Niles

A word for the waiting

For those of you who are in a season of waiting, in a dry and thirsty place, in a place where you are just “DONE” with it all, be encouraged that God sees you, Loves you so very much, and is not through with you. Sometimes it feels as if He has forgotten you, as if he cares more about “them” then he does you, but remember “feelings” are fickle, do not let them guide you but let Him (and His word) do so instead. Do what God is leading you to do, and you will see the JOY return (remember it IS your strength).

Take your eyes off your situation (yes I know it sucks, but nothing will change unless you make a decision to focus on what the Bible calls you too), and put your eyes on God, and I promise you will begin to see change. You were not designed to carry your burden; that is why when you do you feel so weighed down, so “depressed” so unable to go on. Give it to God (really give it to him) and watch him make a path through that desert you have been in for far too long. Then breath in deeply and lift up your head and see how good He is!!

If you are losing steam, Here is some fuel

You and I run
For the prize that lies ahead
We’ve come too far to lose our way, our way

Get up!!!

               There’s further to go!

Get up!!!

              There’s more to be done!

Get up!!!

            This witness is sure!

Get up!!!

            This race can be won!

                             This race can be won!!!!!!!!

Don’t let this one thing stop your miracle from happening

In Mark 5:36 Jesus said…

Do not fear, only believe.” (ESV)
Don’t be afraid; just believe.” (NIV)
Don’t be afraid. Just have faith.” (NLT)
Do not be seized with alarm and struck with fear; only keep on believing.” (AMP)
Don’t listen to them; just trust me.” (The Message)

No matter how you slice it that is the word of God to us.

He wants us to stop being so afraid of what we think can happen and just believe and do what He is telling us to do.

In the case above Jesus was talking to a man who wanted to Jesus to heal his daughter but was met with discouragement in the form of a well meaning friend who told him that it was to late, to not bother Jesus any further.

How many of us are on the brink of a miracle when a well meaning friend or family member comes alongside us, puts a arm around out shoulder and says, “Its to late for you, it’s best to give up that dream.” Or “What you are believing for is never going to happen. It is better you quit now before people start to call you crazy, you lose your job, you lose your home, you lose your friends…” etc.

How many of us will find out when we get to heaven that if we just simply believed Jesus and held fast to His promises just a little bit longer that we would have seen amazing things happen?

God wants to do great things through you so that others may see His work in your life and come to know Him. Yet God is stopped when we let our fear override our faith!!

If God is telling you to believe for something big, if it lines up with scripture, and you have asked God to redirect your steps if it is not Him, and He is still asking you to simply believe His word and press in, then Press in!!

Don’t quit, don’t give up!

Every time fear creeps in go to God in prayer and worship and Keep Going!!

I am cheering you on!!

I am praying for you!!!

With Christ all things are possible if you simply believe!!!!!!
