Unload

Perhaps it is not a direct quote but I got the message listening to a sermon today given by Max Lucado. He said it is better to shake your fist at GOD than turn your back on Him.

GOD is big enough that He can take our anger. It is we who cannot handle it. So His Word to us is go ahead unload on Him. You doubt me?  Read it for yourself.

psalms 55: 23 (22) Unload your burden on Adonai,
and he will sustain you.
He will never permit
the righteous to be moved. 
[source]

When we are honest enough to unload our anger, hurt, pain, fear, doubts, questions, needs, wants – whatever it is – when we unload on Him with an honest heart, He will sustain us!

So. Next time a bad attitude sneaks up on you, unload it on ABBA with an honest heart and in His grace He will adjust that attitude and you will be delighted with the results.  What do you have to lose? Like Max said it is better to shake your fist, than turn your back and walk away from the GOD who loves you.

But for my part, [Adonai,]
I put my trust in you. 
[source]

Amen.

I will put my trust in Adonai even when it is Adonai that has hurt my feelings because He didn’t do what I wanted when I wanted.

Thank You, ABBA. That was a good message today. HOLY SPIRIT, help me remember it especially when I need it most. Thank You, ABBA ADONAI, for loving us always and forever and always doing what is best for us. In JESUS name we give You praise and in His name and in our hearts we bring people for healing, for restoration and reconciliation. And for each Reader I ask strength and courage to trust You in all things. Amen and amen.

Think Again

I went visiting in Blog-land this morning. Stopped in to sit a spell with my friend, Leah at The Point. She encouraged me to pop over to Max Lucado’s election site and see what he had to say. So I did. And while I was there I signed the pledge to pray for America specifically for the next 40 days. You can join too.

And while visiting with Max the HOLY SPIRIT had something to say to me. And when I tell you perhaps a light bulb will come on for you too.

”…if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” (2 Chronicles 7:14)

What does that say?
Does it say if the proprietors of the strip joints on Bourbon Street will humble themselves, pray, seek GOD’s FACE, and turn from their wicked ways GOD will heal this land?
Does it say if the homosexuals will?
Does it say if the abortion mill directors will?
Does it say if the inmates will?
Does it say if the politicians will?
Does it say if ‘Hollywood’ will?
Does it say if Obama will?

Does it say if the good ole boys (and girls) will?
Does it even say getting Obama and all his cohorts out of office will heal our land? (Don’t misunderstand. I want him and them out of office more than any persons ever before them!  BUT!)

NO!
No, it doesn’t!
So if you like me have been prone to think if all those listed above would just repent and turn to GOD, He would save America. Think again!

Now I am not saying a move of repentance in the above groups would not bring a wave of glory over this Nation. It would! And I’d be jubilant beyond myself to see it!!

But it is not up to them to save America!

It is up to us! 

ABBA said IF MY PEOPLE.

And who are ABBA’s people?

If you are His you know who you are.

So what’s it going to be, Sister – Brother?

”…if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” (2 Chronicles 7:14)

If the Lampstand of America is removed; if America falls; if America is not healed — whose fault will it be?  Who will DADDY GOD hold accountable?

ABBA, thank You. Search my heart and reveal every wicked way in me, and by Your Power and Might it will be removed! ABBA, I want this land to be healed. I do not want to be a stumbling-block to that healing. Forgive me for pointing fingers. Forgive me for my own blindness. Do what only You can do in me I pray for JESUS sake. I pray for my sisters and my brothers to pray, to repent and see You heal this Land.

Blessings to you Dear Friends    +++

Today I Will Make A Difference


Such wisdom can be found reading any of Max Lucado’s books and I got this via email today. I had to share it because I believe someone else needs to hear it besides me. Enjoy!

Today I Will Make a Difference

Today I will make a difference. I will begin by controlling my thoughts. A person is the product of his thoughts. I want to be happy and hopeful. Therefore, I will have thoughts that are happy and hopeful. I refuse to be victimized by my circumstances. I will not let petty inconveniences such as stoplights, long lines, and traffic jams be my masters. I will avoid negativism and gossip. Optimism will be my companion, and victory will be my hallmark. Today I will make a difference.

Be sure to pop on over to Heart 2 Heart for the rest. And perhaps you will check out some other of Kat’s postings.

A brief update and I will call this a post for Monday.

Summer is going well. GRANDS and I are enjoying each others’ company. I’m not getting a lot of writing time as you are well aware; not doing a lot of reading either but I believe a lot of ‘spiritual gardening’ is going on. I believe Jesus in me is making a difference.

Please continue to keep up your praying for our PFT and for me, if you will. I have some ‘wonder if I should-s’ and some ‘could it be-s’ taking up some thought and prayer space. A prayer or two for me to clearly discern ABBA’s Will would not be wasted. Much JESUS love and thank you-s to you all.

We have the God-given Right to do right in this wrong World,
