Journey~knowing HIM more..Hiding HIS Word

Trying to memorize this chapter. So much in this that applies one day or another. Another part of my Journey -to knowing HIM more…

PSALM 27 (NLT)

A psalm of David. The LORD is my light and my salvation– so why should I be afraid? The LORD protects me from danger– so why should I tremble?

When evil people come to destroy me, when my enemies and foes attack me, they will stumble and fall.

Though a mighty army surrounds me, my heart will know no fear. Even if they attack me, I remain confident.

The one thing I ask of the LORD– the thing I seek most– is to live in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, delighting in the LORD’s perfections and meditating in his Temple.

For he will conceal me there when troubles come; he will hide me in his sanctuary. He will place me out of reach on a high rock.

Then I will hold my head high, above my enemies who surround me. At his Tabernacle I will offer sacrifices with shouts of joy, singing and praising the LORD with music.

Listen to my pleading, O LORD. Be merciful and answer me!

My heart has heard you say, “Come and talk with me.” And my heart responds, “LORD, I am coming.”

Do not hide yourself from me. Do not reject your servant in anger. You have always been my helper. Don’t leave me now; don’t abandon me, O God of my salvation!

Even if my father and mother abandon me, the LORD will hold me close.

Teach me how to live, O LORD. Lead me along the path of honesty, for my enemies are waiting for me to fall.

Do not let me fall into their hands. For they accuse me of things I’ve never done and breathe out violence against me.

Yet I am confident that I will see the LORD’s goodness while I am here in the land of the living.

Wait patiently for the LORD. Be brave and courageous. Yes, wait patiently for the LORD.

Be Real-Hold out Hope

A dear friend tagged me with this on FB, and i am honored that altho she has never met me, she gets me.  i used to shoot drugs into my arms before knowing Jesus, watching the blood run down my arm made me feel alive in a twisted way, altho feeling so very dead….actually i was dead, but now i am alive in Christ.  i know many cutters, and i understand what they get from it.  Could we as the body, just stop and remember what we are all saved from….? Could we love and accept them as the beautiful creations that they are, and write love on their arms….and then wrap them in it, show some patience….God will do the changing, and we do the loving….hold out Hope…Thank you Jesus for holding out hope to me.

A Friday Evening Rant!

Its been a long time since i just ranted..and if you are not into it, STOP reading now!

After work today I just wanted to fuel my bus before putting it away (you know so if someone needs it this weekend its fueled). I sat and waited for 20 minutes while a man at the pump just stood there, insisting it don’t work, because he can’t hear it.  FAIL its working but you have to hold the handle this aint the Minit Market (yes in PA we pump our own fuel)…he has worked there for 20 or more years, its always been that way..OKAY, still rolling with it, patience..yah I am working on it. Two bus drivers tried to cut in front of me..dang! these are full size buses, not little nissan people!  then another driver decides she needs to get around me, instead of going the other way, and now i need to back up to let her past..lost my spot in line for fuel! OKAY..i am not that nice..so i parked the bus, and said i am done for today!

I leave there to go pick up some dinner for my kids. i am a nice mom, want to treat my kids a little..go to Wendys. (the man delivers to wendys, support the cause all that!), the girl rips me off some of my food, about $7.00, and I want her to fix it..but FAIL! she got all ghetto on me..and needless to say Jesus did not come out of my mouth..it was all about ghetto on ghetto..FAIL!

Just so you know, I am staying in my house..I am not going anywhere tonight..and knowing full well, i have FAILED the patience, show them love, and be Christ like, and it took me all of 30 minutes!

Being an Overcomer doesn’t mean that I have it all together, or that crap doesn’t happen to me..it means I am learning to overcome one thing at a time, and knowing when I FAIL, GOD will most certainly give this test again, until I pass it.. **stomps feet**
