Birthdays and Life

Comments: 1

Today is my birthday and I find myself reminiscing about my life and finding myself so thankful for the life God has granted me. I am so thankful for the people he has allowed me to have contact with and those who are my friends. I realize the years are passing by quickly and I want to be relevant in ministering to those who are hurting and those who need hope and encouragement. I often find myself needing that same encouragement so I desire to sow it in others lives. I am not interested in being known as the healthcare worker, the author, the singer-songwriter or anything else. I hope it is said of me that, “He Cared.” God sent his son because he cared. Jesus obeyed his Father because he cared. The Holy Spirit is still on the earth because the Father and son cared. If you want to give me a birthday wish; my request is that you too will care for someone who can’t repay you. Just love on someone who is discouraged and down. Pray for rest on those who are tired and weary. If  that is you, email me and I will pray for you! I appreciate you and I am glad you are in my life. I pray and thank the Lord for Psalm 103: 2, “Praise the Lord O my soul and forget not all his benefits-” It is beneficial to serve the Lord and allow him to love on you. Thank You for listening to me reminisce today! After all it is the day the Lord allowed me to take a breath on this earth he created! The scripture states he knew us in our mothers womb! Jeremiah 29:11 says he has plans for us..plans for good and not evil to give a future and a hope! Happy Birthday to all of you!

Psalms 37:23-24

I was approached by a friend  today who told me about how the Lord prevented him from being in a car crash that ended with the person in front of him dead. He stated how his wife was awakened in the middle of the night before to pray for safety for thier family and some of the details of her dream were eerily seen in his travels. That is how much God loves us…the thief comes to steal kill and destroy but God has plans for good and not for evil and is looking out for us BEFORE things happen! Psalms 37-23-24 states , ” The Lord directs the steps of the Godly. HE DELIGHTS IN EVERY DETAIL OF THIER LIVES. (EMPASIS MINE!) 24″ Though they stumble they willnever fall, for the Lord holds them by the hand.” Why is it  hard at times for us to beleive that God is interested in “every detail” of our lives when he says that even the hairs on our head are numbered? I have often times found myself NOT praying for things because it hadn’t occurred to me that God would be interested in the smallest detail of something I felt I may be able to take care of on my own without involving the Lord. However according to Psalm 37, God is interested in everything about my life…every detail…! I picture it like this; We are God’s children no matter what our age. Now a human parent such as a Mother of Father of a child is interested in every detail of thier childs life…such as do they look presentable in public…hair combed…clean underwear (HA!) etc…u get the picture. So you see God is just as interested in us as well. He loves us with a love thats hard for me to comprehend. He watched as we nailed his son to a tree and shed Gods own blood! His own blood but yet he so loved us he gave! Today my friends join me in allowing God to help us grow as we share every detail of our lives with him. Every detail of how your heart may be hurting, may be joyful, may have financial and personal needs etc. Lets go to him with thanksgiving and praise in our hearts and share with him the most intimate fearful hurts and needs and allow him to love on us! I can’t wait to see how he answers in your life and mine! Please share it with me!

Thank You-Stay Connected!

As most of you know I have been wrapped up in a full time job and then spending time recording and writing and promoting my cd and music and books! It’s a lot to do but in God’s grace i do all things while he is strengthening me! Which brings me to a point to speak about. I have learned it doesn’t matter how much music I write, how many books I write or sell if I don’t stay connected to one who gives me the wellspring of life. Psalm 1:2 “But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his word he meditates day and night.” My life, my joy , my strength are all found in him! Sounds simple I know-It’s walking it out that seems to be the hard part at times! God is not waiting for me to save the world.He is waiting for me to engage in the relationship with him!  I love the word of God, I love the presence of the Holy Spirit and I love to see my brothers and sisters doing well in the Lord! Please stay connected daily with the Lord and please stay connected with me! Let me know whats on your heart and mind. I love praying for you all! Talk to you soon!
