"The Lord is close to those whose hearts are breaking; he rescues those who are humbly sorry for their sins. The good man does not escape all troubles---he has them too. But the Lord helps him in each and every one." (Ps.34:18:19)

We must guard against attempts at forcing God to act as we think He should. If He does something that won’t fit into the box we’ve designed for Him, we easily become upset, angry, or confused. The Lord will never stay within the parameters we set for Him. Since we are mortal, earth-bound, and sinful, we have a very narrow perspective and understanding of life. But our eternal, sinless, sovereign, and omniscient Creator sees and knows what we cannot perceive. Scripture tells us of the Lord’s… Continue

It is not difficult for the Lord to turn night into day. He who sends the clouds can just as easily clear the skies. Let us be encouraged --- things are better down the road. Let us sing God's praises in anticipation of things to come. "Our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all."(2 Cor.4:17) Trials do serve their purpose. (Charles H. Surgeon)

Doubts can send you into a storm or cause you to encounter desert dry land. You see no means of being rescued by God because of the silent doubts you have about His actual existence.
The only thing you may have to go on is His word in His Word. He has spoken through the ages and chooses when, where, and how He speaks today.
For a moment it may be a matter of survival. He will never abandon you. Because you are His child, He only asks for simple faith. That's what gets you to heaven… Continue

When you trust in God, you have sweet rest in danger or pain. Oh, to be in God's hands. What a place---in the hands of God! If we are in God's hands, we are where all things rest; we are home and we are happy. We have left the creature's nothingness and entered into the Creator's all-sufficiency. Beloved friend, get there. Hurry to get there, and from this moment live in God's hands.
"For I am the Lord, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you. Do not fear; I will help… Continue

"I will never leave you or abandon you." (Heb.13:5)
Abandoned is a thought that only comes from the enemy. At times, God will be silent, but He will never abandon you. You sense His presence on the mountaintop, but He is also with you in the valleys of life. That is where you can learn more about Him and His ways.
Remain faithful when things fall apart around you. He is aware of those times and events also. You will one day look back and see those not only as growing times, but also… Continue

Believer, if you think you've missed God, and lost your way, don't worry. Just pray, and remember...HE WILL FIND YOU! "Every moment you know where I am" (Ps. 139:3).
Sometimes we don't let people get to know us completely because we are afraid they will discover something about us that they won't like. But God already knows everything about us, even to the number of hairs on our heads (Matthew 10:30), and still… Continue

Father, at times I feel like I'm finished. I'm just done and can't take anymore. You know my limits and the depth I can withstand. Help me to remember there is a final depth to this sinking process, and You are always within reach.

You may be going through difficult times right now. You're discouraged because the situation you face seems unmanageable, unreasonable, or unfair. It may seem unbearable and inside you're saying, "God I can't take it anymore." But you can. you can stay with it longer because God is with you. He'll enable you to press on. Resist discouragement and finish the race God has set before you. (Rick Warren)

Father, I know I have more days of worry than I do of trust. There's never been a day I could've made better than the one You planned for me. Sometimes my worry cancels out a day of potential happiness when I don't trust You. Even though each day may have enough trouble of its own, I choose this day to be happy in You. Amen.

Happy New Year! Just want to share this devotion from Oswald Chambers. Hope it blesses you like it blesses me.

Security from Yesterday. "...God requires an account of what is past (Ecclesiastes 3:15). At the end of the year we turn with eagerness to all that God has for the future, and yet anxiety is apt to arise when we remember our… Continue

Hope you're having a wonderful start to your week and it will get even better as the week progresses.
Ron and I had a wonderful time yesterday at the Women In Touch Banquet at our home church, FBC Belleview, Florida. I love this ministry of our church and how God works in the lives of the women who come into the program. It's always a blessing to watch them find their purpose in life and to find their joy in the Lord.
I'm looking forward to… Continue

I hope you're having beautiful weather today like we're having here in sunny Florida with a cool breeze blowing. I love living in Florida from now until the end of May but must say that I miss living in Nashville for the rest of the year.
Yesterday was a special day for me as I talked on the phone with someone I met in the early 1960's when I was on the Wally Fowler TV Show. Tommy Mayo and I had lost contact with each other over the years and we just… Continue
