  1. Thank you, Cholette. It is amazing you would come up with Sarah laughing, that has a special meaning that relates to this whole issue - that I had forgotten about until you mentioned it now. I pray that is an indication of the Lord's affirmation. I feel I've been waiting for Him in a holding pattern for a very long time. God Bless & Thank You -
  2. About six months ago I discovered I had an illness that is cureable and researched a facility that specializes in the type of treatment I need. I visited the clinic and got a recommendation from my doctor so my insurance will cover the treatment. All things were lining up - I've spent months doing market research to transfer my business, places to live, churches, etc. I've scrimped and saved and had a little blessing from God in order to financially be able to make this move several states away. My lease-to-own tenants stopped paying rent a couple months ago and I had to go the whole eviction process. Last week I finally got to see inside and how they left my home - and they have done thousands of dollars of damage (animal poo ground in every room's carpets, holes, unreported plumbing leaks, filthy, etc). It is going to take everything I've saved in order to get it re-rentable. I don't believe the Lord brought me this far and showed me the 'promised land' in order to take it all away, and I'm praying He is just making me really want to get there against all odds and struggles with faith in Him. Please pray that His will is revealed to me and that if this move is His plan, (not mine), that He will provide the finances so I can make this move and take advantage of this awesome opportunity. Thank you -
  3. I hope they are helpful - I chose them because they have been helpful to me when I've dealt with family things, and transitional issues. I hope the transition is smooth and blessed - you seem to have such a good and grounded outlook - may the Lord bless and multiply those blessings!!
  4. Sometimes a real hard workout or super long walk earlier in the day helps me get a really deep sleep. God Bless -
  5. Cloud - At least you are putting your energies and time into the right arena! God Bless you and your venture!
  6. Hey, Nubava - You are in my prayers!! Maybe these can give you comfort and reflection - "We know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called for his purpose" (Romans 8:28) "May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit" (Romans 15:13) And my favorite... "we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weakness, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are - yet was without sin. Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may recieve mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need." (Hebrews 4:15-16) "Preserve sound judgement and discernment, do not let them out of your sight; they will be life for you, an ornament to grace your neck" (Proverbs 3:21-22) Hope everything is going better!!
  7. Lord, I lift Just Blue Skies up to you and ask for your desires to become very clear to your child - in your time and in your will, Lord. I also ask you grant sleep to JBS!! In Jesus' name - Amen.
  8. Ditte - I pray there has been peace on this issue with your family! God bless - family stuff can be so hard! I pray these can be of help: Through patience a ruler can be persuaded, and a gently tongue can break a bone. Prov 25:15 I know, my God, that you test the heart and are pleased with integrity. 1Cor 29:17 And for your husband I pray he finds peace and the love and forgiveness of Jesus: I confess my inequity; I am troubled by my sin. Psalm 38:18 When my heart was grieved and my spirit embittered, I was senseless and ignorant; I was a brute beast before you. Psalm 73:21-22 I'm praying for you! Bless your sweet spirit for the Lord!!
  9. Yo - God Bless you - I hope you are feeling some relief and peace! You are not a whiner - maybe it's an attack from the enemy, maybe it's a nudge from the Lord... I pray your prayers will find the right answer! In my anguish I cried out to the Lord, and he answered me by setting me free. Psalm 118:5 You, O God, do see trouble and grief; you consider it to take it in hand. The victim commits himself to you. Psalm 10:14 Surely you desire truth in the inner parts; you teach me wisdom in the inmost place. Psalm 51:6 In our hearts we felt the sentance of death. But this happened that we might not rely on ourselves but on God, who raises the dead... On him we have set our hope that he will continue to deliver us. 2 Cor 1:9-10 I pray these scriptures are helpful - God bless!!
  10. I am still praying for you, Daph. I'm glad to hear his surgery went well, and am praying the Lord provides you with everything you need, financially, physically, mentally & spiritually. You sound so good - I pray the Lord continues to hold you up and lays his healing hands on your son for a complete recovery. In the name of Jesus - Amen.
  11. The Professor had his vet appt today - if he doesn't have another re-break he should be able to keep his leg! Will know more next appt - in one month, and if all looks good he will have cast off after another month. His leg will be a little bent, but Doc said he should be able to get around on it fine! Thank you for all your prayers - he is a very special little cat! God Bless -
  12. I agree - sometimes the enemy's multiple lies out-shout the Lord's Truth - even the truths that we know well. For me it's helpful to hear again from another perspective and I love it when science proves the bible! Ha! Glad to know it was helpful - God Bless You - One day we'll be reflecting on our trials as we celebrate at the Lord's Bridal Feast - we can toast that we made it through all this once and for all! Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial (James 1:12) This is not our true reality, Praise God, only the rocky path to it! Happy Trails!
  13. Good Morning - Recently in answer to the Lord, I've been 'set aside' to do some deep digging and rooting out of past ugliness (that I had thought was finished), that is impeding my relationship with my Lord and elsewhere in my life. From reading others' posts, there's a variety of struggles out there and I wanted to share a word that has been fascinating and helpful to me, in hopes that it is helpful and encouraging to others. The tool is that we people have biological proof that the Lord created our brains for language - particularly spoken - to overrule our emotions, and can put emotions under subjection to our thoughts and what we say. Maybe not a new revelation to many, but perhaps added proof to those with an already verbally active relationship in the Lord. But for those of us who've been raised prayerfully conservative and quiet, it adds spiritual credence to the human addage that we are what we think. God says so, too. And sometimes, when our walk recieves blow after blow from the enemy, it's easy to forget the power of Godly thinking and we think we don't have the strength to claim the Truth, when in reality, it's the Truth that will give us the strength! June Hunt, (Christian), Host of the nationally syndicated broadcasts, Hope For The Heart and Hope In The Night writes in her book, How To Handle Your Emotions, "When a painful situation causes us to react with negative emotions, the thoughts that follow that reaction will determine if those emotions will rule us or if the truth will rule us. "Why? There is actually a physical connection in all this, based on how God designed the human brain. When we feel emotional pain, if the language center of the brain is activated, the strength in the emotional center of the brain is automatically reduced. This means our thoughts have power over our emotions - even to the point of overriding our emotions and bringing them into subjection. (auth italics) "Because the spoken word has more power than the unspoken word, it is important to speak words of truth - words of faith - in order that truth and faith may be strengthened within you. Ultimately, feelings follow thinking. (auth ital). Therefore, what you say to yourself about yourself, about your situation, about your future, and even about God will determine how you feel about yourself, your situation, your future, and God and His relationship with you. As you line up your thinking with God's thinking, your words will bring life, not death. "The tongue has the power of life and death" (Proverbs 18:21) She also gives good scripture response to asking 'What do you think about yourself?' "Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed,' says the Lord, who has compassion on you" (Isaiah 54:10) "What do you think about your situation?" (Unfair, intolerable, helpless...) "You can say with the apostle Paul, "I can do anything through him who gives me strength" (Phil 4:13) "If you are walking in darkness, then cherish these words from the Lord:" "I will lead the blind by ways they have not known, along unfamiliar paths I will giude them; I will turn the darkness into light before them and make the rough places smooth. These are the things I will do; I will not forsake them" (Isaiah 42:16) Isn't that last one especially beautiful? God Bless you if you are struggling; we are all on our own different journeys with our Lord and Savior. I'm going to put this in ferverent practice and see what happens. This reading has blessed my journey and made it a little easier and sweeter with the Hope of The Lord, I pray it will help you, too.
  14. God Bless- I'm praying for your family. Let us know how things are going.
