The refreshing time continues to be refreshing.  Thank you for your love and prayers.  SO again today we go to Just Between God & Me by Sandra Drescher.

Mighty God

When I reached the top of a mountain with a group of friends, we broke into songs of praise to God. The view was beautiful as we looked down on miles of trees and up into the clear blue sky. Seeing the earth from high above, as God does, made us feel especially close to Him.

By seeing all the beauty and majesty in God’s creation, I saw myself as only a tiny part of His vast purpose on earth. I felt the great privilege of having God, who made all that I saw, as my personal Savior.

My help is from Jehovah who made the mountains! And the heavens too! (Ps. 121:2 LB).

O mighty Savior, I praise You for caring about me amidst all the grandeur of Your creation. Thank You for the beauty all around me. Amen.

I am particularly appreciating Sandra’s words today as I am mindful of a world of folks in this world who relegate God to an occasional Sunday morning, excluding this Personal Savior from their moment to moment living.          . . .  My brothers, these things ought not to be so. James 3:10 (ESV)

LORD and CREATOR, SAVIOR, FRIEND and FATHER — it is so good to know You are all this and more to us. I petition You to reveal Yourself more and more to Your People. Thank You for the vast, innumerable privileges, gifts, and blessings You lavish upon us each moment; HOLY SPIRIT, give us eyes and hearts to see these more. I come now with Praying for These, and our IDOK Troops, Israel, the Church, America and particularly the November election, all these concerns, thanking You that You are able.  We trust You with it all.  Amen and amen in JESUS Name.

Holy hugs, kt
