Heart For The Saviour


Heart For The Saviour

When I read the verse of Scripture above...I think of her life and her walk with the LORD.

Her previous blog: Connie's Thoughts ... was some how deleted.

Trusting In the Lord



The LORD is good...

...every need he knows of.

a strong hold in the day of trouble...

...he is with us.

And he knoweth them that trust in him.

Our prayers were made...to the one who can answer.

HE DID.

As my family prepared to move overseas...so many needs arose so quickly.

We PRAYED...it was answered!

But then, the need changed..suddenly.

We PRAYED...it was answered!

One AGAIN..it abruptly changed!

We PRAYED...it was answered!!

Three times within a two day period our NEEDS changed and GOD answered them immediately. What JOY it brought and confidence of HIS WILL...

AT THIS TIME.

Some prayers need much patience..as GOD works in other areas..perhaps other lives.

This time...he chose to answer immediately! How thankful we were to be able to share this with so many. The encouragement it brought to my daughter, as she traveled  alone with four children to a foreign country.

The LORD is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in him. Nahum 1:7

So often, I have counseled others to wait on the LORD. TRUST.

We must tell ourselves this, as well!!!

How often do you give advice...scripture to others and fret yourself over the very fear they had!!

It is a good reminder to remember...your own words of encouragement.

Oh, so often, I have seen the Lord work in lives over TIME...myself included.

Some prayers...need TIME ..for the answer to come.

To TEACH us to TRUST. To TEACH us patience. To TEACH us not to want.

Does not Psalm 23 say...

The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.


In the front of my Bible I have written at the top of a page:

My Memorials of God's Faithfulness.

MY.

The page is full....he has answered so many prayers.

TRUSTING THE LORD...

Are you? Can you? Will you?

He has so much prepared for you..so many blessings!

Don't miss them!!

Be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart,
all ye that hope in the LORD. Psalm 31:24


Trust today..and pray.

God Be With You Til We Meet Again


A song sung at every GOOD BYE I know of...for Christians!

The writer obviously wanted to have joy in knowing that GOD was going with those departing our fellowship...and that by FAITH, we KNOW, we SHALL see one another again..here or in the air!

What PEACE and COMFORT it is to be SAVED and know the LORD JESUS CHRIST as one's personal SAVIOUR! I wouldn't trade my place with anyone! To REST in the LORD and HIS PROMISES..is the greatest life there is.

My daughter and her children left the other day...farewell..FARE YE WELL!!

So many PRAYERS ANSWERED...one prayer answered..the NEED changed and IMMEDIATELY it was ANSWERED..but then once again..the NEED changed and AGAIN..the prayer was answered.

GOD KNEW...the need. What joy and comfort it gave me..as a MOM to see MY GOD so quickly intervene in the needs of my child. It gave her confidence in her journey. The unknowns can be so scary...so unsettling. But, with GOD..our comfort lies in RESTING IN HIM.

How loving he is to give us glimpses of his care...whether it be an immediate answer to prayer...or a timely call...or timely hug..ALL TIMELY.

So with this post...let me share this song:

God be with you will we meet again..
By HIS councils guide, uphold you
With His sheep securely fold you

God be with you till we meet again
'Neath His wings protecting hide you
Daily manna still provide you
God be with you till we meet again.

God be with you till we meet again
When life's perils thick confound you
Put His arms around you..
God be with you till we meet again.

God be with you till we meet again
Keep love's banner floating o'er you
Smite death's threat'ning waves before you
God be with you till we meet again.

Chorus:
God be with you will we meet again..Till we meet again
till we meet, Till we meet at Jesus Feet,
Till we meet, till we meet..God be with you till we meet again.


Jeremiah E. Rankin 1828-1904


Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.
Psalm 16:11


I love you ...my family..God Be With You!
Mom and Nana
