Goodness and Love


Surely goodness and love will follow me
   all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the LORD
   forever.

A heart of peace

A heart at peace, gives life to the body ... {Proverbs 14:30}NIV

I know often, I must tell myself; "Be at rest once more, O my soul, for the LORD has been good to you." {Psalm 116:7 NIV} Life has many challenges, we sometimes have to face many storms, perhaps trial, after trial, pain after pain, heartache after heartache but all these aches and pains keep me running to my Savior and they keep me humble. They help me realize How much I need our Heavenly Father. There is no way I could with stand any of this with out HIM. O, when I run to the throne of grace, when I lay my burdens at HIS feet, when I run to my quiet place {literally any room} to find solitude, so that I can be be still and quiet before the LORD, really, I don't have to say anything at all. At times, all I can do is be still before the LORD and just lay my broken heart at HIS feet. O, the Peace the LORD gives when I lay my burdens down and TRUST HIM! Whew! I tell ya, it seems trial after trial some days, and I realize I have LOTS to learn and all I can say is LORD, mold me, shape me, transform me into the woman YOU want me to be! HE truly gives peace which surpasses all understanding.

Besides, if my life was a bliss {smooth sailing} all day every day, I would probably have nothing to write about and I would be a very selfish person. O, GOD is good! I choose to turn my eyes and focus off my storms and turn my eyes and focus on my LORD! ♥   

Dear LORD,
Help us to stop and consider YOUR wondrous Wonders! Even in the midst of storms, let us find Joy, Peace and Contentment in YOU. Please give us a heart of Peace. Thank YOU precious Heavenly Father, that, when we cry out to You, when we humble ourselves, or just be still before YOU, O' Thank YOU LORD, for the peace YOU give! Please LORD, continuously fill our hearts with YOUR abundant Peace and Love! LORD, we Glorify YOU. 

Stop and consider God's wonders. {Job 37:14} NIV

Tea Time with GOD: I call to YOU



{Psalm 4:1-4}
     Answer me when I call to you,
O my righteous God.
Give me relief from my distress;
be merciful to me and hear my prayer.
How long, O men, will you turn my glory into shame?
How long will you love delusions and seek false gods?       
Know that the Lord has set apart the godly for himself;
the Lord will hear when I call to him.
In your anger do not sin;
when you are on your beds,
search your hearts and be silent.  

 
LORD GOD ALMIGHTY , has given us countless  promises. Though one, even the world may despise us. Make false accusations. GOD’S WORD tells us: HE has set apart the godly for HIMSELF and HE will answer them, when they call.

No matter the situation, no matter the trials, storms, disappointments, or aches in our hearts. GOD sees and hears our cries for mercy and help. We are not forgotten, HE is just. We don’t have to give up and feel hopeless. HE is faithful and HE will rescue His people. The LORD also tells us; “Don’t sin by letting anger control you.” At times it may be hard to do, and all we have to do is just be honest with GOD. HE is compassionate and understanding. HE will help us.

 Let us put our Trust in HIM. HE promises to supply all our needs. Over and over again, HE promises to never leave us nor forsake us. Let us meditate upon HIS WORDS and treasure them in our hearts.

LORD FATHER GOD, we run to YOU and call upon YOUR Holy Name. Please give us shelter and comfort in the shadow of YOUR Wings, Comfort me with YOUR compassionate loving words. YOU are Holy and All Powerful. Grant your servants request for Help. Let your face smile on us, LORD.
  You have given me greater joy.

Tea Time with GOD: A Reverent Self-Controlled Woman




{A Reverent Self-Controlled Woman} 

Make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self‑control; and to self‑control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness, love. For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. 

Truly, GOD will equip us with all we need. HE will help us to be the women HE has called us to be. All HE asks; is that we acknowledge we Need HIM. GOD'S WORD says; HE gives Grace to the Humble but resists the proud. I Take great delight in HIS WORDS, because they are True and our Heavenly Father does not lie. HIS WORDS, are a lamp for our feet, a LIGHT for our path.

The question that echoes in my heart is; "What Kind of Woman do I Want To Be?"

  Am I a woman who is self-controlled? Or do I give in, lose my temper, morals, dignity and lose self-control?

How can I increase in these qualities?

Let us, keep increasing in these wonderful qualities;  by adorning ourselves with:

  • VIRTUE; Honor: Integrity; Excellence; Nobility
  • KNOWLEDGE; knowing GOD’S Truth, reading and understanding His Word. Growing in Christ
  • SELF-CONTROL; strength of character, dignity, balanced.
  • PERSEVERANCE; steady persistence in a course of action, a purpose, a state, etc. in spite of difficulties, obstacles, or discouragement. Continuance in a state of GRACE to the END, leading to ETERNAL SALVATION.
  • GODLINESS; holiness, worshipful, prayerful, reverent, faithful, devout
  • BROTHERLY KINDNESS; friendly, selfless, understanding, affectionate, devoted
  • LOVE; adoration, devotion
Speak it, Say it, Live it…

LORD FATHER GOD,
we come boldly to YOUR throne of GRACE, knowing fully we cannot accomplish these qualities without YOU. Please LORD, we desire with all our heart, to live our lives for YOU, for YOUR glory. Please LORD, with total surrender… Give us the Strength, courage, wisdom, knowledge and understanding to walk this JOURNEY of LOVE with YOU. Pour YOUR Grace, Mercy and Holy Spirit upon us that we may walk in YOUR ways and live accordingly to YOUR good and perfect will. Take away all the wickedness, everything in us that is not of YOU and replace it with YOUR Goodness, Knowledge, Self-Control, Perseverance, Godliness, Brotherly Kindness, and LOVE. Let us wear YOUR LOVE, O LORD. Make us the Woman, YOU want us to be. For GLORY and HONOR belongs to YOU O LORD> Fill our hearts with an out Pour of YOUR LOVE, Your Holy Spirit. May we Persevere till the very end, as long as we live. O FATHER GOD, how I Adore YOU, how I LOVE YOU, with all of my heart, mind and strength.

 "And we are confident that he hears us whenever we ask for anything that pleases him. And since we know he hears us when we make our requests, we also know that he will give us what we ask for."
