Hold Fast to Your Faith in God

Happy Friday to everyone. Wild fires have cropped up across Oklahoma today...burning lots of homes, farms and acres of land. We need more rain...soon!

We are so Blessed compared to the people in Japan with the earthquake/tsunami that hit early this morning.

This post is great! Hope that you receive a Blessing from it.

Hold fast to your faith in God.
You're not being promised
days filled with sunshine
or no pain,
but in Him you'll find some peace
to get through each day.

Questions will come to mind...
Why me?
What did I do wrong?

It is good to search for the answers,
but admit your mistakes
and get on with life.

It's not easy,
so take one day at a time.

Brighter days will come;
It's just a matter of time.

You're not alone;
there are many who feel as you do.

It's your faith that
will pull you through.

From Whence Shall My Help Come?

Happy Thursday to everyone. Sun is shining in Oklahoma and it is supposed to be a warm day. Hope that you will have a nice one in your town too!

Today's post is one of my favorite passages from Psalms.

"I will lift up my eyes to the mountains;
From whence shall my help come?
My help comes from the Lord,
Who made heaven and earth.
He will not allow your foot to slip;
He who keeps you will not slumber...

The Lord is your keeper;
The Lord is your shade on your right hand.
The sun will not smite you by day,
Nor the moon by night.
The Lord will protect you from all evil,
He will keep your soul.
The Lord will guard your going out
and your coming in
From this time forth and forever."

-Psalm 121

May I seek to live this day quietly.....

Happy Wednesday to everyone! Sun is shining here and beautiful weather is in the forecast. Of course, with Oklahoma weather...that can change quickly.

Today's excerpt from "Creeds of Faith and Inspiration" is another good one. I have liked all of them so much! Hope that you have been Blessed by reading them also.

May I seek to live this day
quietly, easily,
leaning on God's mighty strength
trustfully, restfully,
meeting others in the path
peacefully, joyously,
waiting for God's will unfolding
patiently, serenely,
facing what tomorrow brings
confidently, courageously.

God Is In Our Hearts...

Happy Tuesday to everyone! Raining today...wonderful "liquid refreshment" that we desperately needed! Thank you, Jesus! Many parts of the country didn't need rain, but Oklahoma did.

God Is in Our Hearts to See Us Through Each Day

No matter what your needs may be
you can depend upon
the divine Power within
to uplift, to bless,
and to strengthen you,
so that you in turn may uplift,
bless and strengthen others.
You can depend upon this Power
to give you courage to meet with poise,
confidence and peace of mind
each situation which this day
may present.

Prayer is so simple...

Happy Monday to all! Sun is shining in Oklahoma (most of the state anyway) and the wind is blowing strong. Weatherman says highs in the 50-60 range today, but cooler because of the wind. Maybe some rain tomorrow...we need it very bad!

Today's posting from "Creeds of Faith and Inspiration".

Prayer is so simple.
It is like quietly opening a door
And slipping into
The very presence of God.
There, in the stillness,
To listen for His voice,
Perhaps in petition
Or only to listen,
It matters not.
Just to be there,
In His presence,
Is prayer.


More things are wrought by prayer
Than this world dreams of.

-Alfred, Lord Tennyson
