Today’s message is a recap from March 28, 2011. As you can probably tell by now, I’m occasionally reflecting on past posts to help with current needs. Today’s message definitely helped me. I hope that they help you too.
Scripture To him who is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you before his glorious presence without fault and with great joy—to the only God our Savior be glory, majesty, power and authority, through Jesus Christ our Lord, before all ages, now and forevermore! Amen.
Father there are times when I am so self-consumed that I obviously must forget Your power, greatness, and omnipresence. I forget that when I am stressed out and fearful that You are watching and listening to me as I cry out. There are moments when I forget that I’m not alone, that I’m not lost, and that there is a solution to every problem and a straight pathway no matter which way I turn…and You provide the means to all I need.
Through Your son Father You have provided the perfect example of how to deal with sickness, sin, strife, fear, pain, doubt, anger, envy, ridicule, and temptation. You provided Your children with a life manual for us to read, study, practice, know, and live by. Father You have placed angels to watch over me, to steer me out of harm, to magnify Your glory. Lord You have placed people in my life to grab my hand when I need a lift after stumbling, embrace me when I need to feel Your warmth, push me when I drag behind, and share words of wisdom when I need encouragement.
Thank You Father. Amen.
God is always there and always provides a way to help us whenever we need it, before we need it. We are not to analyze the why, what, where, and how- but be present in the ‘is’ of our life. Be grateful for those loving people in your life who are constantly encouraging and uplifting you in prayer and praise. Thank God for those people who want nothing from you but to see you be the best expression of God’s love. Be thankful for your life and all you have experienced, and for what is yet to come. What more can you ask for?
