|2 Kings 4:26
Run now, I pray thee, to meet her, and say unto her, Is it well with thee? is it well with thy husband? is it well with the child? and she answered, It is well.
This passage in the bible amazes me. The woman has sent for Elisha because her son is dead. He sends a servant to ask her, is everything well. Even though the woman's son is dead, she states it is well. This is a strong testimony. That no matter what was wrong in her life, the woman trusted God and knew that all was well. Our family has experienced many trying times in the last four months, when I heard our pastor preach on this verse, I had to say it is well. That no matter how much sorrow, grief, trials and problems that we experience all is well. The reason all is well, because God is in control. His will is going to be done, but He will always take care of us. He will place no more on us than we can bear. We also have Jesus Christ as our Anchor in life. He is our Lord and Savior, and has provided our salvation by dying on the cross for our sins. Praise God He arose on the Third Day. By accepting Jesus into our heart and believing He is God's only Son, I can say It is Well. Jesus will carry us through any storm that rages in our life, by the love He shown we will one day see heaven's shores. So I can truly say, through Jesus Christ's love It Is Well. I know that our family will face many obstacles and that Satan will try his best to make us stumble. Through Jesus Christ we will over come everything. We will give all the praise and glory to God, and sing It Is Well With My Soul.
It Is Well
Lord, so much has happened in the last year
That has filled our eyes with many flowing tears
Many times our mind has been filled with dread
With wondering what we may face that is ahead
Then to You we have turned and prayed and cried
To help us through this storm, to please be our guide
Then sweet relief comes to us from within
Knowing You are with us, on You we can depend
No matter what we may face through out today
I can honestly say It Is Well all of the way
You are the Anchor to which we cling
All is well, because You are our King
You will help us face the problems that arise
All is well, because You dry the tears from our eyes
No matter what problems may appear
Lord, we know that You are always here
Through You any mission we can achieve
Because in You we truly and honestly believe
There is no mountain that You can not move
There is no heartache that You can't soothe
With Jesus by our side, anything we can defeat
All of our fears and sorrow, Jesus can always delete
With Jesus as our Anchor, I can say It Is Well
Because Jesus saved my soul from Satan's hell
Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.
Let us rejoice in the love that Jesus has for us. He died on the cross so that you and I could be saved. He suffered greatly, because His love for us was so true, and still is today. Let us follow the example Jesus set for us. Let us love one another, and tell others of Jesus' love.
We can find peace in the true love that Jesus has for us. Let us strive to live our lives so that it reflects that we have Jesus dwelling in our heart.
Let me tell you about the truest love that I have ever known
By God in heaven, the truest love was shown
He sent His only begotten Son to die for our sins
He bestowed a love on us that has no end
Jesus was beaten, tortured, and whipped
The abuse continued, and of His clothes He was stripped
But still the worse was yet to come
Jesus said, "Father Let Thy Will Be Done"
Jesus was nailed on the cross for our sins to bare
What love He had for us to remain there
Jesus had thorns placed upon His head as a crown
He could have called a legion of angels and came down
True love was what Jesus had to give
He had to die, so you and I could live
Jesus was placed between two thieves on the cross at Calvary
One knew that Jesus was the Christ, Jesus told him, today you will be in paradise with me
In His final hours, Jesus prayed, "Father forgive them, they know not what they do
Now this is the truest love, that has ever been shown to me and you
Praise God that on the third day
That the stone was rolled away
Jesus is Risen, He is Alive
Everyday for Him I will strive
If you don't know Jesus I pray soon you will
All your wounds and hurts, Jesus can heal
And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger: and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.
Isn't this a great promise. That when we accept Jesus we will hunger no more. He will fill our thirst. By believing on Him we can have eternal life. Jesus is the bread of life, for our sins He was sacrificed. True love is what Jesus Christ has given to all who will believe and accept Him. Praise His holy name.
BREAD OF LIFE
The bread of life one day I will eat
I’ll hunger no more when I bow down at Jesus’ feet
There will be rejoicing and praising God that His word to us was spread
That when our soul did hunger He kept it feed
There were many times that the storms in my life would not cease
Until I prayed to God and He gave me peace
Many things in my life I tried to conceal
When Jesus saved me every sin to Him I revealed
The bread of life I have found
For thousands of years it has been around
The bread of life
Is the one and only Jesus Christ
He filled my cup I thirst no more
I’m happier than I’ve ever been before
But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ.
As I read this scripture I had to ask myself, am I growing up in my spiritual walk with Jesus? Are we growing in spiritual maturity? When we are growing in our relationship with Christ, we experience a true life changing relationship. I know I am growing but my growth is slower than I would like it to be. Many times I place God on the back burner in my life. Let us strive to put Jesus back in number one place. Then and only then can we mature in His love, truth, and life changing relationship. That we are truly transformed inside and out.If we allow Jesus to place His stamp on our heart and soul, we will truly never be the same again. To allow His truth spoken in love, to reflect from our lives everyday. That is when our light will truly shine for God.
Only Jesus can truly calm every storm
Even our very soul Jesus can transform
I want to grow up, and mature in His love
To seek His truth, and guidance from above
Our whole life Jesus can completely change
Our heart and direction in life He can rearrange
Let us follow the example Jesus set, while on this earth
To truly grow in His love, and experience a new birth
To extend love to all that we meet, to speak out of love
To tell the world that Jesus is the way to a home above
That we will no longer be ordinary
Because His touch is extraordinary
In Jesus we can grow daily, in His love and truth
To be humble and loving as His example set in Ruth
Let us strive to grow and mature in the love of Jesus Christ
To be a tree planted by the river, growing and showing new life
Let us sprout roots for Jesus and flourish
Let our heart and soul, for Jesus to nourish
| Psalm 32:8 (King James Version)
8.I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye.
I pray for God to guide us in our daily life. Many times I truly wonder what the day may hold. I often focus on what God's plan is for our life. What mission does He have in mind? Where does He plan to have us go? I know God has a plan for us, sometimes I am frightened when I think of what our destination may be. Then I am reminded by God's holy word that He will give us peace, and God does not abandon His children. When I think about God's calling on our life, now I get excited. I know that God will lead the way. He will show us the direction we are to go in uncertain times. We will fail along the way, but God will pick us up and help us get back on our way. Our mission only God in Heaven knows. One thing I know for sure, He will be with us every step of the way. We must pray and trust God, and lean on Him when things seem impossible to us. He will nurture our faith, and through the Holy Spirit strengthen our walk with Him daily. If we just read our bible and let God lead, trusting Him completely, we can never go wrong. So when we think of what God has in store for our life, let us think of it as wonderful adventure. Something that will bring glory to God's holy name. Let God use us to tell the world about Jesus Christ, all the days of our life.
What does God have in store for our life?
Telling the world of His only Son Jesus Christ
Let us not be afraid of the mission God has for us
In Him let us place every ounce of our complete trust
Let us not fear the road that we may have to travel
God will be there to catch us if we stumble in the gravel
God has a plan for our life, we need to let Him take the lead
He will lead us to our destination, He knows our every need
He will guide our footsteps no matter where we may go
In Him we find peace, because He loves us so
In time God's plan He will reveal
He will carry us up every hill
29.Take My yoke upon you, and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart; and YOU SHALL FIND REST FOR YOUR SOULS.
30.For My yoke is easy, and My load is light.
In this life we move at a fast pace. Many times we pass God right on by. We focus on all of our troubles and trials, and forget to involve God in all that is going on. We try to handle things on our own, then end up making a big mess out of everything. Let us slow down and let God work in our life. Give Jesus all the burdens that hinder us. Let Him carry our load, in Jesus we can find rest. Let us sit down and talk to God. To let Him know everything that is going on in our life. To share with Him all the things that bring us down. Let us sit down with our heavenly Father and catch Him up on all that is going on in our life. He already knows what is going on, but wants to hear it from us first hand. Start including God in everything that we do daily.Get His advice on things before everything goes hay wire. To alert our Father to the pain and sorrow that we are suffering, so that He can relieve our heavy heart. Let us slow down and make time for God daily. To exercise daily by going to Him in prayer. To share our joy and disappointments with Him no matter what. To let Him carry our heavy load, to realize that we can't do anything on our own, without God working in our life. Let us slow down, and quit running so fast that we leave God out. Slow down and sit and talk with God about our daily problems. To let Him dissolve those mountains that we can't move. He can move any obstacle if we just have the faith and believe. Slow down and rest, let God work in your life. Let us quit stepping on His toes, trying to resolve problems that only He can.
Father, let me slow down, so that You can work in my life
To remove all the mountains and obstacles that create strife
Let me remember to sit and talk with you on a daily base
To tell you things that are going on, not to run around in haste
Father, let me take the time to kneel down at Your feet
Talking with You daily makes my life feel complete
Let me share with You, all the problems of my day
To ask You to carry my load, take the problems away
Let me slow down and feel Your presence within my heart
Let everyday of my life on this earth with You always start
Forgive me Father, when I move at a fast pace
I need to slow down, so in my life you have first place
Let us slow down and talk to You, and give You our heavy load
You will carry our heavy load, By You the load will be towed
124:8 Our help is in the name of the LORD, who made heaven and earth.
Many days we grow weary and tired. With all of the problems that life throws our way, we get down and out. We begin to feel sorry for ourselves. It seems like the weight of the world is on our shoulders. When we get to feeling this way, let us think back to all that God has brought us through. That no matter how impossible things have seemed, God has provided everything we could ever need. I know every now and then we have a pity party, and let Satan encourage that we are getting no where at all. On those days, Satan has a party at our expense. Let us remember to give God the praise, for all that we have been given. Not to worry about all the things that we need. God has never let us down, and He will not start now. He will provide for His children daily. We are not always going to experience joy and happiness. There will be hard times, and times that we are so tired we can barely go on. No matter what we need, God will deliver. Keep the faith and try not to focus on things that God will provide eventually. It is hard at times when it feels like the whole world is caving in on you. God will make the sun shine bright on us soon, so just hold on. When we get tired of trying, we need to let God take the reigns. When we have done all that we can, we need to pray and give it all to God. He will help give us relief from all things that burden us. No matter what problems we are facing, God will deliver in His time. We just have to trust and believe, in His awesome power. God will use these times of trials to draw us closer to Him.
Father, when an emergency occurs we call on You
You always come to our rescue, and pull us through
Father, I know You love to hear from us in good and bad times
You are awesome Father, Your timing is always so divine
Father, when we begin to doubt things in this life
Let us run to Your only Son Jesus Christ
No matter what our need, I know help is on the way
Because You provide for our needs every single day
You are our true source of help when things seem bleak
When we hit rock bottom, to You Father we can speak
When things seem so wrong
You always make us strong
Father, Thank You for Your help in all things
Thank You Father, for the many blessings Your love brings
14But Zion said, The LORD hath forsaken me, and my Lord hath forgotten me.
15 Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? yea, they may forget, yet will I not forget thee.
16 Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands; thy walls are continually before me.
Sometimes when things fall apart in our life, we feel that God has forgotten us. It is during these times that we have to remember, that God is carrying us in His arms. He has not forgotten us, He is just holding us when we are too weak to stand. Just when we look around, God shows us His power. He shows us in our most desperate times, that He is with us. When friends, family, and the rest of the world have given up on us, God has not forgotten us. He will be there in our darkest hour, even though some times we don't realize it. He is beside us every step that we make in life. Just like the footprints in the sand poem, He carried us when we could no longer make it. So when we notice just one set of footprints, let us remember, that God has carried us that last mile. Just like stated in these verses, a mother can forget her child. But we are God's children, and He will never forsake us. So when the world seems against us, remember God is for us. No matter what goes on in our life, God is always faithful and true. He will always be there for me and you. When times get tough, He will make a way to bring us through it all.
Father, I know that You have not forgotten me
You sent Jesus Christ, to set this sinner free
I know that You will forget us not
You are with us when we are on the spot
You will embrace us in the worst of times
You will be with us, when everything is fine
No matter what we may face each day
Lord, You are truly with us all the way
Father, when we see only one set of prints
We will know that in Your arms that time was spent
That You carried us when we could no longer stand
That You led us and took us by the hand
That You showed us the way we needed to go
You have not forgotten us, You love us so
That He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might by His Spirit in the inner man.
We want to live our lives for God, but sometimes we become defiant. Inside we have the desire in our heart to do what God requires, and needs us to do. But on the outside we are influenced by the ways of the world. That is when God's strength comes into play, we must cling to Him daily so that He can strengthen us through His Spirit. To strengthen us to resist Satan's temptations, God can empower us through His Spirit with strength to truly live for Him. God can give us the faith, the will, and the enabling power to resist temptations that Satan places in our path. Through God we can have peace of mind, and the strength to face everyday problems in life.
Strength From God
Lord, let me place everything in Your hands
To let You strengthen me in things I need to understand
To let You make my life what it should be
To place love in my heart and set my spirit free
Your strength can help me truly soar
Through Your strength I can do so much more
Through the strength that You provide
I want You always to be my Guide
Father, strengthen me daily so my life can be pleasing to You
Strengthen me to work for You in all that we may do
|1 Corinthians 3:11
Other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.
Many times we try to build a life that we think will be perfect for us. We build our life on hopes and dreams. Then later down the line everything is destroyed and taken away. After a time we realize that we were using the wrong foundation to build our dreams on. None of our foundations were truly strong. Then when we built our life on the true foundation, which is Jesus Christ things no longer seemed to wash away. Our feet are on solid ground, we find that our foundation is strong. That we are no longer drifting out to sea because we built our house on the sand. With Jesus as our true foundation we can truly weather any storm. Because Jesus is the Rock, the firm foundation on which to build our faith and life. Through Jesus Christ we receive salvation and the perfect foundation.
Solid As A Rock
Jesus is the perfect foundation
He is the solid Rock to salvation
Jesus is the perfect foundation on which to build
He is the foundation that makes Satan have to yield
At one time my house was built upon the sand
It was washing away until Jesus took my hand
Now my foundation is built on Jesus Christ
A firm foundation that will last for life
Put your foot on the Rock that will last forever
The foundation that will stand firm and stay together
So let us build our foundation on Jesus our Rock
Then our salvation is secure as a strong lock
It can't be broken and no one can take it away
With Jesus our foundation is firm and will always stay
