Prayer request

I received some really upsetting news last week, which has my mind on other things at the moment…. my  mom has been in remission for cancer for 9 months, well, it’s back, so both of my parents have cancer now.   My time may be consumed with other things for awhile… I will try to keep up some posts every so often, but I know you will understand if the blog is very light in the posting for awhile.   Thank you so much for your lifting my family up in prayer.

God is in control.  He doesn’t ever lose control.  I pray for God’s will during this time in my life.

Prayers and Promises: Love’s Courage

Psalm 31: 23-24   O love the Lord, all ye his saints; for the LORD preserveth the faithful, and plentifully rewardeth the proud doer.  Be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart, all ye that hope in the LORD.

When my courage seems so small and slips away, when sin seeks to pull me from Your path, Lord, remind me of these verses.   I need only trust in You, the One who keeps me safe and brings good things into my life.  You reward my feeble efforts and multiply them through Your strength as I simply love You and respond to You in faith.

I want to be strong – in You and for You.  Give me courage each day.  When evil seems to about and sin distracts me from Your way, thank You that Your ove abounds still more.

Prayers and Promises: Take Refuge

Psalm 62:8  Trust in Him at all times; ye people, pour out your heart before him; God is a refuge for us.

Storms are a part of life.  We often think we are prepared for the storms that lash out at me, but then they become more severe than anticipated.  Thank you, Lord, for providing a safe haven for me.  Lord Jesus, I am glad to have You as my spiritual shelter.  My soul will never be in jeopardy as long as I take refuge in You.
