Time Steps Away

Time Steps Away 2

Open my eyes to see the miracle-wonders hidden in your word.
 My life on earth is so brief, so tutor me in the ways of your wisdom.

Psalm 119:18-19 TPT

Lately, I have been thinking about my father who went to be with the Lord in 1984. His birthday was January 1st, every year he made pizzas and the neighbors came over to celebrate, so I often think about him more as we head into a new year.

The other day, I was talking with God about some very difficult decisions and how to get through them. Suddenly, I remembered the words my father often spoke when I asked, “what do we do about this situation?” He would simply answer, “you just do the best you can.” Those were encouraging words in so many ways because they told me that as long as I knew in my heart I was doing my best, things would work out. This was so many years ago, yet his words still ring true in my life. I give my best to God and he takes care of the rest.

So, this year I find myself praying the prayer from the scripture above, “open my eyes to see the miracle-wonders hidden in your Word.”

Life on earth is so brief, it has been 34 years since I saw my father alive on earth yet I know he is alive with Christ. Mom went to be with the Lord almost three years ago. Time seems to step away from us, life on earth is brief but when we seek the Lord with all our heart, giving Him our best, he opens our eyes to see what is hidden in His Word.

Happy New Year!

Praising Jesus

Jesus Reigns

40 I waited patiently for the LORD; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry.
He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings.
3 And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the LORD.  Psalm 40 KJV
God is so awesome, I would have died in my addiction had he not pulled me out and sovereignly changed my life 38 years ago, but he also makes daily life worth living no matter what is happening around me.
He does miraculous things such as last week when he intervened in paying our car repairs which were expenses that were beyond the scope of our finances. He also sent his wonderful people to provide rides to and from the auto repair center.
I am so grateful for his presence in our lives, his love goes beyond any human affection and his promises are eternal.
Have a wonderful day and enjoy the Lord’s presence in your life today.

Draw nigh to God…

“Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you.” James 4:8 KJV

Do not fear but draw near to God despite feelings, fears, shortcomings and any other struggle you encounter. Do not try to clean yourself up because God’s powerful love desires your presence just the way you are. Christ’s death on the cross where he shed his own blood is the place of freedom and transformation in your areas of struggle. Come to him and he will come close to you and endue you with power from on high. This power is the overwhelming love he has for people and it is an undying love that will continue to pursue you throughout your life. Do you hear him calling your name? Respond to his invitation, allow him to place an everlasting “yes” in your heart and receive his unconditional love today
