Our Daily Strength

April 19, 2018

Dear God,

You give us challenges,
but you also give us the
strength and courage
to face them.
You are the rock
upon which we
may lean when
we feel too weak
to stand alone.
Thank You God…

Amen

 

Hello Dear Ones… There probably isn’t a day that doesn’t go by that we aren’t faced we some type of challenge. Some days we take these challenges in stride, but other days they weigh heavy on our hearts and souls and we feel lost and discouraged. It is at times like this, we must remember we are never alone. God is always only a prayer away. The more people we ask to help pray for us and with us about the burden we are struggling with, the more powerful it becomes. There is power in prayer. We may not always get the answer we ask for, but God has a plan and His plan will provide an answer. He is always there for us to lean on. Don’t be afraid to lean on God for strength and courage and remember you are worthy and you are loved…❤️

In Troubled Times

April 19, 2018

Go peaceful
in gentleness
through the violence of these days.
Give freely.
Show tenderness
in all your ways.

Through darkness,
in troubled times
let holiness be your aim.
Seek wisdom.
Let faithfulness
burn like a flame.

God speed you!
God lead you,
and keep you wrapped around His heart!
May you be known by love.

Be righteous.
Speak truthfully
in a world of greed and lies.
Show kindness.
See everyone
through heaven’s eyes.

God hold you,
enfold you,
and keep you wrapped around His heart.
May you be known by love.

“For thus saith the LORD God; Behold, I, even I, will both search My sheep, and seek them out” (Ezekiel 34:11).

This He does at the first when His elect are like wandering sheep that know not the Shepherd or the fold. How wonderfully doth the LORD find out His chosen! Jesus is great as a seeking Shepherd as well as a saving Shepherd. Though many of those His Father gave Him have gone as near to hell-gate as they well can, yet the LORD by searching and seeking discovers them and draws nigh to them in grace. He has sought out us: let us have good hope for those who are laid upon our hearts in prayer, for He will find them out also.

The LORD repeats this process when any of His flock stray from the pastures of truth and holiness. They may fall into gross error, sad sin, and grievous hardness; but yet the LORD, who has become a surety for them to His Father, will not suffer one of them to go so far as to perish. He will by providence and grace pursue them into foreign lands, into abodes of poverty, into dens of obscurity, into depths of despair; He will not lose one of all that the Father has given Him. It is a point of honor with Jesus to seek and to save all the flock, without a single exception. What a promise to plead, if at this hour I am compelled to cry, “I have gone astray like a lost sheep!”
