"God made two great lights—the greater light to govern the day and the lesser light to govern the night. He also made the stars." GENESIS 1:16 ~ March 31, 2011 a spiral galaxy in the constellation Canes Venatici, is in the east in early evening and soars high overhead later on. It's also known as the Sunflower Galaxy for its beautiful shape and color. It's bright, so it's visible through almost any telescope. "Remember your servants Abraham, Isaac and Israel, to whom you swore by your own self: ‘I will make your descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky and I will give your descendants all this land I promised them, and it will be their inheritance forever." EXODUS 32:13 ~ APRIL 1, 2011 The planet Venus continues to highlight the dawn sky this month. It looks like a brilliant star, quite low in the eastern sky at sunrise. It is so bright that you can easily mistake it for an approaching airplane. "And when you look up to the sky and see the sun, the moon and the stars—all the heavenly array—do not be enticed into bowing down to them and worshiping things the LORD your God has apportioned to all the nations under heaven." DEUTERONOMY 4:19 ~ How awesome is our Lord Almighty that He would think of the JOY His children will have in star gazing. "He determines the number of the stars and calls them each by name." PSALM 147:4 "This is what the LORD says, he who appoints the sun to shine by day, who decrees the moon and stars to shine by night, who stirs up the sea so that its waves roar— the LORD Almighty is his name." JEREMIAH 31:35 ~ "The sun has one kind of splendor, the moon another and the stars another; and star differs from star in splendor." 1 CORINTHIANS 15:41 ~ "In his right hand he held seven stars, and coming out of his mouth was a sharp, double-edged sword. His face was like the sun shining in all its brilliance." REVELATION 1:16"You alone are the LORD. You made the heavens, even the highest heavens, and all their starry host, the earth and all that is on it, the seas and all that is in them. You give life to everything, and the multitudes of heaven worship you." NEHEMIAH 9:6 ~ "The LORD wraps himself in light as with a garment; he stretches out the heavens like a tent." PSALM 104:2 "Praise the LORD. Praise the LORD from the heavens; praise him in the heights above." PSALM 148:1 ~ "Lift up your eyes and look to the heavens: Who created all these? He who brings out the starry host one by one and calls forth each of them by name. Because of his great power and mighty strength, not one of them is missing." ISAIAH 40:26 ~ "Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?" MATTHEW 6:26 ~ “Whoever acknowledges me before others, I will also acknowledge before my Father in heaven." MATTHEW 10:32

PRAY FOR THE PEOPLE IN ISRAEL. What now is known as Libya was, during Biblical times, Cyrenaica, a Greek colony which suffered two earthquakes and was in ruins by the fourth century. The ancient Greeks founded the settlement of Cyrene on Libya's eastern Mediterranean coast that eventually evolved into the Roman province of Cyrenaica. It is next to EGYPT, then the RED SEA, then ISRAEL. In Matthew 27: We learn that it was a Libyan man — Simon of Cyrene who carried the cross for our Lord Jesus. In Acts chapter 2: we learn that God-fearing men from Libya were present in Jerusalem on the Day of Pentecost and heard the Apostle Peter preach the gospel in the power of the Holy Spirit. Some 3,000 people that day repented of their sins and became fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ. It is likely that Libyans were among them since they are mentioned in the text. In Acts 11: we learn that Libyan (Cyrene) followers of Jesus Christ helped bring the gospel to Antioch, Syria, and made disciples for Jesus there. In Acts 13: we learn that a Libyan man — Lucius of Cyrene — becomes one of the leaders of the church at Antioch, helping send out Barnabus and Paul to take the gospel to Asia and Europe. Bible prophecy also tells us the government and many of the people of Libya will be engaged in great evil in the End of Days. In Ezekiel 38-39: we learn that Libya is one of the nations that joins the Russian-Iranian alliance against Israel in “the last days.” In this prophecy, Ezekiel uses the name “Put.” The first century historian Flavius Josephus wrote in his famous book, The Antiquities of the Jews, that “Put” or “Phut” is “ancient Libya.” APRIL 25, 2011 EASTER MONDAY another evil slaughter hits the news. Let Obama come and take Syria. Let Israel come and take Syria. Let the Jews come," shouted one Daraa resident. "Anything is better than Bashar Assad," he said, playing on Syria's hatred for Israel. The military raids on the southern city of Daraa and at least two other areas suggested Syria is trying to impose military control on the centers of protests against President whose family has ruled Syria for four decades. The offensive was meticulously planned: Electricity, water and mobile phone services were cut. Security agents armed with guns and knives conducted house-to-house sweeps, neighborhoods were sectioned off and checkpoints were erected before the sun rose. "They have snipers firing on everybody who is moving." PRAY FOR THE PEOPLE OF ISRAEL! Daraa, a drought-parched region of 300,000 in the south, has seen some of the worst bloodshed over the past five weeks.Ancient Libya, we know, certainly included the territory of the modern nation state we refer to today as Libya, but also included Algeria and possibly Tunisia. This tells us the no matter what the near term outcomes of the revolutions underway in North Africa are, in the not-too-distant future Libya for certain and possibly her neighbors will have virulently anti-Semitic and anti-Israel leadership who will eagerly join a coalition bent on destroying the Jews and occupy the land of Israel. Gaddafi, of course, is already such a leader. In 1979, he relinquished the title of prime minister, and was thereafter called "The Brother Leader" or "The Guide" in Libya's Socialist Revolution. Gaddafi was a firm supporter of OAPEC and led a Pan-African campaign for a United States of Africa. After the 1986 Bombing of Libya and the 1993 imposition of United Nations sanctions, Gaddafi established closer economic and security relations with the west, cooperated with investigations into previous Libyan acts of state-sponsored terrorism and paid compensation, and ended his nuclear weapons program, resulting in the lifting of UN sanctions in 2003. With an area of almost 700,000 square miles, Libya is the fourth largest country in Africa by area, and the 17th largest in the world. The capital, Tripoli, is home to 1.7 million of Libya's 6.4 million people. In 2009 Hillary Clinton met with leaders of LIBYA. Then early in February 2011, major political protests, inspired by recent pro-democracy events in Tunisia, Egypt which borders LYBIA and other parts of the Arab world, broke out in Libya against Gaddafi's government and quickly turned into a CALL for the USA to enter WAR against the attacks from ISRAEL. Gaddafi vowed to "die a martyr" if necessary in his fight against the rebels and external forces. Perhaps he will ride out this storm and stay in power. Perhaps someone worse will rise up after him. Hopefully Gaddafi will be deposed and a more moderate leadership will rise up for a season before the prophecy of the “War of Gog and Magog” comes to fulfillment. Either way, the Church should be using this window of time to do everything possible to get the gospel into the hearts of the lost in the USA, MEXICO, JAPAN, CHINA, AFRICA, and LIBYA. Believers worldwide are called to UNIFY in Christ, to be led by the Holy Spirit ~ "May they be brought to complete unity to let the world know that You sent Me and have loved them even as You have loved Me." John 17:23 REVELATION tells us what to expect in order to prepare for God’s judgment for attacking Israel. REV 3:10 "Since you have kept my command to endure patiently, I will also keep you from the hour of trial that is going to come on the whole world to test the inhabitants of the earth. I am coming soon. Hold on to what you have, ( YOUR FAITH ) so that no one will take your crown. The one who is victorious I will make a pillar in the temple of my God. Never again will they leave it. I will write on them the name of my God and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem, which is coming down out of heaven from my God; and I will also write on them my new name. Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches." AMEN ~ March 2011 BIBLE REVELATION The Brits seek to authenticate a trove of 70 lead codices that appear to date from the 1st century which are believed to include key clues to the last days of Jesus' life. These codices were found in 2006 in a remote cave in Eastern Jordan, a regrion where early Christian believers fled after the destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem in 70 CE. Since the Dead Sea scrolls were found in 1947 this discovery has the scientific world buzzing. (Ronny and Hennie in Egypt) The codices are made up of wirebound individual pages, each roughly the size of a credit card. They contain a number of images and textual allusions to the Messiah, as well as some possible references to the crucifixion and resurrection. Some of the codices were sealed, prompting yet more breathless speculation that they could include the sealed book, shown only to the Messiah, mentioned in the Book of Revelation. One of the few sentences translated thus far from the texts reads, "I shall walk uprightly"--a phrase that also appears in Revelation. Contextually it could here be designed to refer to the resurrection. In March 2011 a church in England displayed an old copy of the Holy Bible printed in 1611 ~ Only 200 copies of this edition were printed 400 years ago. "For God so loved the world that He sent His only Son ~ In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." God's LOVE is tangible, and believers can feel His presence while walking, talking, or sitting stilled. The love of God is that which enables us to love ourselves and one another. His love is like the Rose of Sharon, it is truly magical and mysterious because the deaf can hear Him ~ He is the song in the heart of the invalid that enables them to feel as if they have risen to dance with Jesus. His love is the Sonrise that the blind can see. His love is visible in all that is beautiful. Praise God for ears to hear, for eyes to see, and for lips to praise Him. HALLELUIAH and AMEN!

"There was a violent earthquake, for an angel of the Lord came down from heaven and, going to the tomb, rolled back the stone and sat on it. His appearance was like lightning, and His clothes were white as snow. HE is NOT here; He has risen, just as He said" Matthew 28:2-6 Inspired by the Holy Spirit by King David wrote PSALM 22 hundreds of years before Jesus was born. " Do not be far from Me, for trouble is near and there is no one to help. I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint. My heart has turned to wax; it has melted away within Me. My strength is dried up lie a potsherd, and My tongue sticks to the roof of My mouth; You lay me in the dust of death. Dogs have surrounded Me; a band of evil men has encircled Me, they have pierced My hands and My feet. I can count all My bones; people stare and gloat over Me. They divide My garments among them and cast losts for My clothing....Posterity will serve Him; future generations will be told about the Lord. They will proclaim His righteousness to a people yet unborn - for He has done it."

Something being emitted from the sun is interacting with matter in strange and unknown ways with the startling potential to dramatically change the nature of the very Earth itself. The natural rate of decay of atomic particles has always been predictable. Indeed, using the decay rate of Carbon-14 has been a method to date archeological artifacts. The process, known as carbon dating, measures the quantity of Carbon-14 within organic objects. According to the numbers, Carbon-14 has a specific half-life of 5,730 years. The mutation will change the reality of the quantum universe—the nature of life, the principles of physics, even the uniform flow of time. NASA is on ALERT - Alarmed physicists became aware of a mysterious threat of the SUN doing what was thought to be impossible. Frantic scientists in 2011 are shooting e-mails back and forth to colleagues across the world attempting to grasp exactly what is happening to the sun. The “impossible” has been proven to be true. Laboratories around the globe have confirmed that the rate of radioactive decay—once thought to be a constant and a bedrock of science—is no longer a constant. Something being emitted from the sun is interacting with matter in strange and unknown ways with the startling potential to dramatically change the nature of the very Earth itself. The natural rate of decay of atomic particles has always been predictable. Indeed, using the decay rate of Carbon-14 has been a method to date archeological artifacts. The process, known as carbon dating, measures the quantity of Carbon-14 within organic objects. According to the numbers, Carbon-14 has a specific half-life of 5,730 years. The mutation may change the reality of the quantum universe—and by extrapolation-the nature of life, the principles of physics, perhaps even the uniform flow of time. As the sun builds towards solar maximum and a period of dangerous intensity never experienced by any living person inexorably approaches, strange, uncontrollable forces build deep within its fiery nuclear furnace. The sun’s mass warps time, bends light waves and accounts for mutation of species on Earth. Now this force is directly interacting with matter in a way that could not only change Mankind’s understanding of physics, but change Mankind itself…and not necessarily in a beneficial way. The values don’t change—or at least they never have in the past. Radioactive decay has turned the head of science. What could God be telling us by identifying 1 day along with 1000 years?
2011 is the TIME to PAY ATTENTION TO THE TIMING OF IMPORTANT EVENTS IN HISTORY. GOD declared His creation as GOOD and out of His grace and mercy He has given mankind much TIME to willingly consider Who made the heavens, Who gave the seed knowledge to sink roots and bear fruit, Who created feathers that gave bird flight, Who filled the sea with fish? GENESIS 1 - MAY 21, 2011 is a normal day, followed by May 22. God's living Word warns us of many false prophets. Harold Camping is not a bible scholar, he never attended seminary. Harold Camping is a profiteer! READ God's Word and trust that you are being given the TRUTH. No man knows the hour of judgement day. We serve a loving God who has given us His word. AMEN

Today is called GOOD FRIDAY because the LORD declared: "God saw all that He has made, and it was VERY GOOD." Genesis 1:31 ~ "I am the GOOD SHEPHERD; I know My sheep and My sheep know Me - just as the Father knows Me and I know My Father - and I lay down My life for the sheep." John 10:11 ~ "Now My heart is troubled, and what shall I say? 'Father, save Me from this hour? NO, it was for this very reason I can to this hour. Father, glorify Your Name." John 12:27

"If you love Me, you will obey what I command.

And I will ask the Father, and He will give

you another Counselor to be with you forever -

the Spirit of Truth." John 14:15

"My command is this: LOVE each other as I have

loved you. Greater love has no one than this,

that he lay his life down for his friends." John 15:12

" But I tell you the truth: It is for your GOOD

that I AM going away. Unless I go away, the

Counselor will not come to you ; but if I go,

I will send Him to you." John 16:7

In the movie Soul Surfer, Bethany Hamilton’s youth group leader—played by Carrie Underwood—plays a key role in the teen’s recovery from a 2003 shark attack. In real life, youth pastor Sarah Hill’s role was even more prominent. Reflecting on the journey that brought her from ministering to kids on the North Shore of Kauai to a New York City movie premiere, youth leader Sarah Hill said she feels a sense of awe—but not surprise. “I really believe that the Lord painstakingly prepares you for things in your life so that you can have a greater testimony to bring Him glory,” she said in an interview after the April 6 premiere of Soul Surfer. For Hill, that preparation involved tragedy and pain. “I was raised in San Diego by a single mom with five kids who has fought a long battle with cancer,” she recalled. “My dad was in and out of the picture, in and out of jail. He was abusive—physically and verbally—and he abused drugs and alcohol.” In addition to enduring emotional pain, Hill experienced physical trials. “I had several surgeries growing up and a lot of illnesses,” she said. “I became very insecure. I didn’t ever question if He was real or not, but I did ask, ‘How can a God of love allow so many bad things to happen?’”
Things seemed to be looking up when Hill received a scholarship to play water polo in college. But two weeks before she was supposed to report to campus, she broke her neck and back in a surfing accident, and lost the scholarship. She was one sixteenth of an inch from being paralyzed. “It’s a total miracle that I survived,” said Hill. “But all of that added to a feeling of despair, and my future and my dreams crumbled right before me.” Three months after breaking her neck, Hill sank into a deep depression and wanted to give up. “I was tired of all the trials and tribulations,” she said. Something made her hang on. “I remember asking the Lord to speak to me,” said Hill. She opened her Bible and found 2 Corinthians 12: 9-10. The red letters jumped off the page: “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” In the next verse, the apostle Paul writes, “I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in trials and tribulations because when I am weak, then I am strong.” As soon as she read those words, Hill recommitted her life to the Lord. “That’s when my journey really began,” she explained. Not long afterward, Hill completed her Associate's Degree in theology from Calvary Chapel Bible College, returned to surfing, and became a missionary on the island of Kauai. Describing the call of God, Hill said that at first she laughed. “God doesn’t call people to Hawaii. But I had this radical dream one night of kids perishing on a beach and someone elbowing me and saying, ‘See Sarah, because you weren’t going to go, people are dying without the Lord.’ “It was awful,” said Hill. “I woke up with a sense of urgency: ‘OK, Lord, you really are calling me there.’” The Attack! In Hawaii, Hill met a young surfer named Bethany Hamilton. And on Oct. 31, 2003, she received a disturbing phone call that seemed at first to be a joke. “I got the phone call from her brother Noah on Halloween morning and I thought it was a nasty trick,” said Hill about Hamilton’s shark attack. “But then I could hear the panic in his voice and picked him up.” As Hill sped to the hospital—actually beating the paramedics there—Noah was so upset he thought he might vomit and stuck his head out the window. “And I am driving and praying, ‘Lord, how do I minister to this family? I am not OK with this.’” That is when the Lord reminded Hill of Jeremiah 29:11 – “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” “I felt like the Lord spoke to my heart,” said Hill. “I had a peace that she would survive. I shared that verse with Noah and her mom. When Bethany first came out of surgery that was the first thing her mom told her. And Bethany grabbed on to that. Hill sat with Hamilton every day in the hospital. By day three, they started to talk about Bethany’s return to surfing. “I told her, ‘The Lord hasn’t allowed this to take away your gift of surfing. He is going to use it in some way.’ All along, I felt that God was going to get her through it.” He did. Less than a month after the attack, Hamilton was back in the water. A year later, she was awarded both an ESPY for “Comeback Athlete of the Year” and a “Teen Choice Award” for Courage. By 2010, Hamilton was ranked No. 20 on the Women’s Tour of the Association of Surfing Professionals. AWESOME TRUE story CLICK for clip

God is ever looking at the heart. "For the EYES of the LORD range throughout the earth to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to Him." 2 Chron 16:9 ~ God desires and longs to find a heart that truly fears Him, which means to wholly trust in Him and to depart from the deception of the world. "DO NOT LOOK at his appearance or his stature, because I have rejected him. Man does not SEE what the LORD SEES, for man sees what is visible, but the LORD SEES the HEART." 1 Samuel 1:16 ~ The externals that GOD delights in is our obedience which is born out of a true love and reverence for His Name. True faith in GOD is foremost a heart that is full of love and respect for Who God is. OUR FAITH is primarily a matter of internals, not externals. Too often people get it backwards, they concern themselves with form, rituals, and religious activity, but their hearts are not right before God. The Lord God Almighty is not impressed with our show! I do NOT believe that GOD finds pleasure in the NUMBER of worhsippers. He is SEES our HEART and KNOWS if we WORSHIP HIM, or if we seek entertainment. Attendance of mega churches or the flurry of activity the church calls “ministry” today does not increase FAITH IN GOD. Do we dismiss holiness and obedience for the sake of popularity, tolerance and acceptance? Is our activities of FAITH recognized by God as worship? Biblically can we use scripture as our judge and admit that if it was not for His grace, we would be slipping away from worship as we seek pleasure and entertainment? BELIEVERS of each FAITH today are filled with lyrics to Christian songs, but are they filled with God's living Word? They attend “fun” retreats and conferences that are more like comic relief than a 3 day FAST from FOOD and INPUT with the INTENTION of hearing from GOD. The Church has become a religious extension of the world. We are to be IN the world but not of it, and these days believers have a PASSION for more spiritual entertainment than Jesus. WORSHIPING GOD ABOVE a Christian musician or the speaker of the word of God is what needs to be seen as SIN. Oh, that they had such a heart in them that they would fear Me and always keep all My commandments, that it might be well with them and with their children forever! (Deut 5:29).


I did not want to do anything without the Holy Spirit's consent, so that any favor I receive from God would be priased. That opportunities would volunteer my entry as He has gone before me to prepare the path I am to take. The reason He was separated from the world for a little while was that I might appreciate the Holy Spirit's constant companionship, forever! HALLELUIAH! Knowing that my body is God's temple, that God's Spirit lives in me, and therefore my body is considered sacred as it is His temple - this FACT allows my inner LIGHT to SHINE regardless of circumstances. For where my treasure is, there also is my heart - as God MADE HIS LIGHT SHINE in my heart to give me the LIGHT OF THE KNOLWEDGE of His glory. This TREASURE, His Holy Spirit is stored in a cracked clay pot - His LIGHT sparkles to SHOW others that the ALL-SURPASSING POWER at work in me ~ is from GOD and NOT from me. AMEN - Though I am hard pressed on every side - the threat of job loss and an increased work load - because of God's mercy I am not crushed! Perplexing situations erupt all around me, yet I am NOT in despair! Because of my faith I am set apart and persecuted, yet God does NOT abandon me. At times my dream, my wish, my desire is struck down, but alas, I am NOT destroyed! For Jesus the Son of God is the LIGHT, He is the radiance of God's glory and the EXACT representation of God's being, Who sustains ALL things by His powerful Word! Jesus provided purification for my sins and then He sat down at the right hand of the MAJESTY in heaven and sent His Holy Spirit to be with me always! At one time I was foolishly disobedient, deceived and enslaved by all kinds of passions and pleasures. I lived in envy and hated those who had possessions that will rot away. But out of the kindness and love of God, my Savior Jesus appeared and through God's pre-destined purpose, He saved me ~ NOT because of righteous acts of service that I had done, but because of His phenomenal mercy! Jesus saved me through the washing of REBIRTH in HIM, and the RENEWAL of my MIND by the Holy Spirit ~ Whom God poured into me and unto me out of His generosity. I have been justified by His grace and I accept as His heir, the HOPE of ETERNAL LIFE!

2 Chronicles 9 "She said to the king, “The report I heard in my own country about your achievements and your wisdom is true. But I did not believe what they said until I came and saw with my own eyes. Indeed, not even half the greatness of your wisdom was told me; you have far exceeded the report I heard. How happy your people must be! How happy your officials, who continually stand before you and hear your wisdom! Praise be to the LORD your God, who has delighted in you and placed you on His throne as king to rule for the LORD your God. Because of the love of your God for Israel and His desire to uphold them forever, He has made you king over them, to maintain justice and righteousness.” YES Our LORD loves us LAVISHLY! DANIEL 2:48 "Then the king placed Daniel in a high position and lavished many gifts on him. He made him ruler over the entire province of Babylon and placed him in charge of all its wise men." I JOHN 3:1 "See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know Him."

God's Spirit speaks to our spirit. If you are wondering what God has called you to do ~ Don't wait for an audible voice to tell you. Begin to do that which you are inspired to do. God cannot drive a parked car ~ the Spirit cannot tell us to turn left if we are not moving. Listen to what the Spirit is saying while you drive, while you work, while you pray, and while you are still ~ and PRAISE God for Who He is, the King of Kings who revealed Himself to Elijah, Moses, Saul, the Samaritan woman and you and me. AMEN ~ Do you want to HEAR and SEE the divine revelation of Christ Himself? Our Lord God Almighty shows Himself to us in His word and He invites us to ASK HIM to reveal His Glory to us. JOHN 14:21 "Whoever has My commands and keeps them is the one who loves Me. The one who loves Me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love them and show Myself to them.” Lord Jesus let Your Glory rain in me, give me reigning ears that are tuned to Your voice, give me eyes that see Your glory filling the earth. 1 Corinthians 2 “What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived”the things God has prepared for those who love him — these are the things God has revealed to us by his Spirit. The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God. For who knows a person’s thoughts except their own spirit within them? In the same way no one knows the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God. What we have received is not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may understand what God has freely given us. This is what we speak, not in words taught us by human wisdom but in words taught by the Spirit, explaining spiritual realities with Spirit-taught words. The person without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God but considers them foolishness, and cannot understand them because they are discerned only through the Spirit. The person with the Spirit makes judgments about all things, but such a person is not subject to merely human judgments, for, “Who has known the mind of the Lord so as to instruct him?” But we have the mind of Christ."Lord Jesus we come to Your throne boldy and ASK that You reveal, disclose, manifest and uncover Your glory inside our minds as You draw us CLOSE in fellowship and speak to our hearts. PSALM 78 "My people, hear my teaching; listen to the words of My mouth. I will open My mouth with a parable; I will utter hidden things, things from of old— things we have heard and known, things our ancestors have told us. We will not hide them from their descendants; we will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the LORD, His power, and the wonders He has done. He decreed statutes for Jacob and established the law in Israel, which He commanded our ancestors to teach their children, so the next generation would know them, even the children yet to be born, and they in turn would tell their children. Then they would put their trust in God and would not forget his deeds but would keep his commands. They would not be like their ancestors— a stubborn and rebellious generation, whose hearts were not loyal to God, whose spirits were not faithful to him." Lord Almighty God who is FAITHFUL to reveal Himself to those who love Him - Thank You Father for filling me, for giving me the Living Water so that I will not be thirsty again. MY SONG to JESUS taken from PSALM 18 NIV
"I love You, O Lord, my Strength.
The Lord is my Rock, my Fortress
and my Deliverer; my God is my Rock
in Whom I take refuge... The Lord
thundered from heaven; the Voice of
the Most High resounded ~
He reached down from on high
and took HOLD OF ME!
He drew me out of deep waters.
He rescued me from my powerful enemy,
from my foes, from my woes ~
My God brought me out into a SPACIOUS place
He rescued me because
He delighted in me.
You, O Lord, keep my lamp burning.
My God turns my darkness into light!
With Your help I can advance against a troop
With My God I can scale a wall!
As for God, His way is perfect ~
The Word of the Lord is flawless!
The Lord lives! Praise be my Rock!
Exalted by God my Savior ~
Therefore I will sing praises
To His Holy Name ~ and blog my brag
of all that He has done in me!
Halleluiah and Amen

"He heals the broken hearted and binds up their wounds. He determines the number of stars and calls them each by name." PSALM 147:3 Our Lord God Almighty heals our broken hearts and minds. He calls us by name and binds up our wounds! Halleluiah! "HELP US, GOD our SAVIOR, for the GLORY of YOUR NAME; deliver us and forgive our sins for YOUR NAMES sake." PSALM 79:9 HELP us LORD JESUS, not for our sakes, but for YOUR GLORIOUS and perfect HOLY NAME! We need You Father and we thank You for delivering Your Son Jesus unto us, to walk with us, to talk with us, to die for us, to forgive us our sins ~ for YOUR NAME! AMEN God knows the motive of our hearts as we go to church, work, and in all the ways we seek more. My prayer is that God create in me a new heart, a transparent heart, a pure heart of worship, a heart like Jesus, a heart that glistens as it listens, a heart that prays and obeys. A heart that is open, a heart that pumps the blood of Jesus as His Spirit abides in me. A heart worthy of His residence, a heart that rejoices in His radiance, and a heart that bows down at the throne of His mercy. AMEN In a magazine article I read about the sin of gluttony - not just the gulping down of portions of tasty treats, but my gluttony of spending, and shopping for more. What method of control does the sinister plot of satan have on me? Is it to control my thinking, to convince me that I am not capable through Christ to live a life of victory which glorifies the Name of Jesus? Beth Moore testifies that it took her FULL FOCUS on GOD's living WORD to be healed of her broken mind. It takes FASTING off food, world news, our agenda, our plans, our ways in order that GOD's GOOD NEWS, HIS PLAN, and HIS WAYS shall become our delighted obedience, over time. His call on our LIFE to serve HIM, to PRAY as we GO, to be CHANGED and EQUIPPED by the indwelt Holy Spirit takes seasons of time. It takes time to plant the seed of FAITH, to water it, to let it dry out, to fertilize it, to pull the weeds, and to protect it from the pests who wish to devour it BEFORE it BLOOMS and produces much FRUIT. My motive for moving to Mexico has been purified, it is to bring His Name all the glory and honor and praise. The method of His call is to bring us to face the TRUTH, to admit that on our own we are unable, but with Him that all things are possible! His gift to us is the unseen but powerful indwelt Holy Spirit. God receives great pleasure in our full surrender to the Holy Spirit Who shall lead us to recognize a parched thirsty soul, first our own poverty, then others. The Holy Spirit softens the soil of hearts into which He plants seeds of HOPE through the GOOD NEWS we boldly proclaim that JESUS SAVES. That JESUS restores and equips us to serve Him with the gifts He gives us. Beth shared a verse she wrote that has been incorporated into a worship song that reflects her desperate need for a Savior. Each LIFE in CHRIST is a new song. Each day as we live, breath, walk and talk, we write the LYRICS for a WORSHIP SONG to our Lord and Savior. This is my PSALM, my song to LORD GOD ALMIGHTY. "Lord give me a heart like Yours. One that prays and rejoices pure. A heart that opens and breaks for the poor. Full of compassion and bursting with grace. Lord let me gaze upon Thy glorious face. Create in me a holy place, cleanse me with Your grace. Abide deep inside that I may bring You pleasure. Oh Lord give me a heart like Yours, You are my greatest treasure ~ Fill me with Your full measure. For Barbara Sue longs for a heart like You!" Sang to the same tune as this church song: "Oh Cleanser of the mess I've made Upon the hill our places trade. Stretched out on a cross Your body crushed by human hands You formed from dust. How wonderful Your mercy is How awesome are Your ways I come ~ I come ~ to worship You for ALL You've done. Oh Cleanser of the mess I've made Your boundless love for me portrayed with patience for my learning curve By holding back what I deserve. How wonderful Your mercy is How awesome are Your ways I come ~ I come ~ to worship You. Oh Cleanser of the mess I've made with everything at Your feet laid I watch as ALL my cares erode and from my soul these words explode Oh how wonderful Your mercy is How awesome are Your ways I come ~ I come ~ to worship You for All You've done." AMEN OPEN THE EYES OF MY HEART LORD, OPEN THE EYES OF MY HEART, I WANT TO SEE YOU, I WANT TO SEE YOU! Lord Jesus I ask in Your unblemished NAME, in Your worthy reputation as the King of Kings, I ask You to forgive my sin of gluttony, of gulping down more portions than my body needs, of spending more money than I have, of posturing for more recognition for my silly accomplishments, of my growing cynical views of Your church, of my insatiable appetite for more pleasure and leisure. God I ask in the NAME OF JESUS that You continue to reveal that which disgusts You and shames Your Holy Name. Thank You for drenching me in the rain of the Holy Spirit and for Your mercy and grace. I come ~ I come ~ to worship You for all You've done. AMEN
