God answers Prayers

Published by Myra under on 9:51 AM
Many times we pray and pray hard for one thing or another, and nothing seems to happen. I have always been told to pray for what is best, not necessarily what I want. On the other hand, I have heard that if you want something, pray hard, pray with fervor and pray without ceasing. I do both, I pray for what I want, asking God if it is his will and I pray hard.

God does answer prayers. Maybe not at the time you want, but he does answer them. Pray without ceasing, pray with fervor and trust that in God, all will workout and will be well. Amen.

Being Thankful

Published by Myra under on 12:27 AM

It's so easy to get caught up in life, that sometimes we don't take time to be thankful. Right now, I am learning to be just that, thankful. Amen.

He Knows my Name

There are many times when I think that God has forgotten me and doesn't even remember my name. It is comforting to know that in those very quiet, still moments, when there doesn't seem to be anything going on, God not only remembers me, he knows me and even knows what is going to happen before me and has set the way for me.

When the Enemy is your Friend

Published by Myra under , , , , , , on 8:41 PM
There is nothing more devastating than to find that someone who you trusted and confided with has betrayed you. To have that feeling of trust broken, no words can explain how it feels. Having experiences that you shared, being dismissed like yesterday's news. Having your feelings tossed aside as being unimportant and irrelevant.

God says when you are being attacked, look to Him and He will be your help.

Surely God is my help; the Lord is the one who sustains me. Let evil recoil on those who slander me; in your faithfulness destroy them. Psalms 54, v.4-5, NIV

Getting through it

Published by Myra under , , , , on 1:06 AM

As a believer, I have to consistently remind myself that I can't be waiting for harship to pass before the next great thing happens in my life. Life is NOW, no matter what you are going through.

Adversaties will come my way, but God had promised me that not only will I go through them, I will get through them. AMEN!

When Parents Disappoint

When parents disappoint us, it's easy to blame ourselves, even when we are not at fault. Ending a relationship with your parents is not easy, but, if after doing the Godly thing and attempts to repair the relationship fails, the best thing to do is move on.

My father and mother may abandon me, but the Lord will take care of me. Psalms 27, v.10, TEV

Claiming a Spirit of Victory

Published by Myra under , , , , on 1:56 AM
When going through hardship, it's easy to see yourself as defeated. Claim a spirit of victory and declare yourself victorious in the name of the Lord.

Give thanks to the Lord, call on his name; make known among the nations what he has done. Sing to him, sing praise to him; tell of all his wonderful acts. Psalms 105, v.1-2, NIV
