prayer... what a blessing!

Prayer... what a blessing!
To know that I have access to the Throne Room of the Most High.
To know that He hears me and is inclined to listen to me always.
Our God is so generous in that He gives us the honor and ability to pray to Him directly.
What a privilege to carry everything to God in prayer!

Blessed be His Name!!!

the Lord will repay the years the locusts have eaten!

It just breaks my heart to see people who claim to be decent act... well, indecent... without integrity, or ethics, or moral principle. What's even worse is when Christians fall into this same trap and act un-Christlike because of selfish pride or jealousy or anger or greed. Sure, as humans we are all privy to sin, but it is especially heartbreaking to be betrayed and belittled by those who claim to know and follow Jesus as Lord merely so they can gain an edge up in position or profit. How sad.

For Jesus never betrays or belittles.
Jesus is not proud or selfish or greedy.
Jesus has never been filled with jealously stemming out of hatred or anger.
No, sweet Jesus has always promoted love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self control.

Let me say that again...


Praying today over these things.
Lifting up those who have intentionally schemed against and deeply hurt my family this past week, and hoping in the Mighty Name of Jesus that He will do whatever it takes to draw those astray back toward His throne.

So, despite what men have done... today I will bless those who curse me.
I will trust that the Lord will protect and fight for my family.
I will rest in my one Refuge and Strength, an ever-present help in trouble... my Wonderful Savior!

Today... yes, this is the day that I will continue to rejoice and seek the peace and promise of God's Word. I will be still and trust... knowing that my faithful Father is always in control and protecting me and my family from the snares of the enemy... and those who callously pursue his evil path.

"I will repay you for the years the locusts have eaten - the great locust and the young locust, the other locusts and the locust swarm - my great army that I sent among you. You will have plenty to eat, until you are full, and you will praise the name of the LORD your God, who has worked wonders for you; never again will my people be shamed. Then you will know that I am in Israel, that I am the LORD your God, and that there is no other; never again will my people be shamed." (Joel 2:25-27)
