Promises are Forever

Just when you think God forgot you….He shows up all over again. This is today’s devoitonal in my book Heartfelt:366 Devotions for Common Sense Living. Still true today.

Philippians 4:19my God will liberally supply (fill to the full) your every need according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus (AMP).

Down to their last 15 dollars, she prayed, “God, I am taking this last 15 dollars to have mother’s ring sized to fit me. It will be a covenant between you and me, God that things are going to get better.
She did that and things did begin to get better.

When I heard the speaker that day, my heart cried out, “Oh God! I wish I  had a ring as a covenant between you and me that things were going to get better!” When I remembered that not every one meets God in the same way, I quickly apologized. “Lord, forgive me. I don’t need a ring, but God! I need a covenant with you that things are going to get better.” The meeting ended and I forgot about my prayer.

Five days later, my husband came home from work, got down on one knee and said, “Will you marry me?” I thought he’d lost it! We had been married over 30 years! He held out a wedding ring of 14-carat pink gold that he found in his job at the local recycling plant. It fit me exactly. And then I remembered my prayer.

Thomas-like, we crave something tangible to remind us that God is always near, making decisions that are right for us. Why is it that He understands and fills our hearts with just the right response?

Prayer: Amazing and wonderful God, thanks for meeting us in such personal and private ways. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Our Father longs to have an intimate relationship with each one of us. It is music to His ears when we worship Him by ‘singing His praises’. I pray that my Worship Melodies bring you blessings.

Saddling Up

My own words keep coming back to remind me once again…Today from Everyday Christain and my book HeartfeltDevotionals for Common Sense Living.

2 Timothy 4:7I have fought the good fight, I have finished the course, I have kept the faith (NASB).

Well Grounded

Statues were a mystery; I was ashamed to say,

Until some dear soul enlightened me about all this one day.

Horse statues standing upright, tall, two legs upon the ground,

Were carrying well a warrior who on battleground was found.

And if the horse was posed with one leg gamely held on high,

That rider suffered battle wounds and sadly then did die.

And finally if all four legs are settled on the ground,

That rider died a natural death, in bed, all safe and sound.

For us, then when our end comes, let it be said and right,

We were found faithful ever, still strong and true and bright.

For if we choose to follow Christ o’er life’s long battle ground,

Our glorious mount’s found standing with two legs on the ground.

Prayer: Lord, may we always fight the good fight, finish the course, and keep the faith. In Christ’s name. Amen.
