|I feel a word coming forth.
It's a profound word and worth
Considering every single day.
Because it could well lead your way.
It's welling up in my heart and almost out.
Let me tell you what it's all about.
FAITH is the word that is now released.
In the Lord who is with us well pleased.
Following His lead in faith and no fear,
A sense of peace will fall fresh upon you.
Giving the tithe when the Lord told me here.
There is no fear or doubt in this year.
A year beset by a pandemic so many ignore.
That takes lives on a daily basis and more.
Fear from the pits of hell causing panic.
Take a moment beloved and not panic.
Listen, hear and obey,
This is the right way.
Faith will set you free from fear.
It will give you peace oh so dear.
Faith in the Lord brings peace and not fear.
Faith in the Lord brings grace and not panic.
Faith in the Lord brings His LOVE so near.
Faith in the Lord brings rest and breath again.

|So what I thought was going to be 144 for medicare medication is 433.00 due on 11/25.
Anyone else get a bill for this ridiculous amount and is it legit?
There's no way we can pay that by the 25th. But for some reason I am not afraid now. I was for awhile but then I realized that the Lord is at work in this situation, just as he was in the hearing aids and the down payment I was able to make to get the monthly payments down to a manageable amount.
Just as He was, , , , fill in your situation beloved that you know was evidence that the Lord was in the midst of your situation.
Just as He is Lord and Savior to those who believe in Him,
Undeterred by the matters you laid before Him in prayer.
Swiftly initiating the answer to your petition and providing.
The Father is faithful and just to His creation.
As this world turns upside down, even an election can't finish.
Surely I say unto you beloved, "it is finished!"
Here on this day in November, evidence of His presence is here.
Early into this morning the moon is guiding those in the dark.
Waking up later in the day, you will find life all around you.
A strip of bacon sizzling in the pan, a sign of His provision.
School buses filling up with children, transporting them safely.
JUST AS HE WAS, He is now and that's the truth. You are not alone even if you are not surrounded by family or friends.
Tell us your moment you know Jesus was at work in your situations. By doing this, beloved, you are creating a trail of road signs that leads directly to the Lords love, grace, and peace for those who feel so alone.
Just As He Was

|Update your blog,
Please don't sit on a log.
Divide the Word of God rightly,
And give Him the praise so greatly.
Take His name and shout it from the roof tops,
Even in the valleys and lows places He's the top!
You have to Update your blog.
Oh sorry did not notice the clog.
Unlike in the world of Covid19, there is still hope,
Reveling in the Kings grace restores one's HOPE!
Bless the Lord oh my soul, bless His holy name.
Love Him as He has loved you and share the experience that's not lame.
On any given day we are reminded that we are not alone,
Giving the hope that is found in Jesus, the Son of God, who died for our sins to your families.
UPDATE YOUR BLOG, you say today.
Every day I will choose to glorify the Lord.
In a blog, a poem, or even a pulpit when the Lord enables.
Because He is worthy to be praised and that's the truth!
|Phone is so hot I can't keep it charged. It goes down if I'm on it for minutes.
Frustrated because I can't really communicate with Rhonda except by phone since I can't visit her in the hospital.
I'm like a fish out of water without Rhonda Cope around but she's really sick and being in the hospital is where she needs to be.
Praying they can figure out what's up and get a handle on the fluid that's built up in her lungs, heart, and extremities.
Still blows my mind that we were there for an ablation and suddenly she's in the ER for signs of a stroke and then they found the fluid in her lungs, later in the heart and extremities.
Oh Lord You do work in mysterious ways. Had that ablation not been scheduled we would have never been in Fort Worth on that day.
I'm reminded of God's wondrous works when I see doctors, nurses, techs, and even others who tend to the sick when they visit a hospital, er, clinic, or other means of help. They are heroes!
|I can't see an end to this Lord.
Give me Your vision as mine is blurred.
It is not my desire to give in,
Very honestly I've learned to win.
Entering into Your courts with praise.
Unafraid is something I've been before.
Please Lord remind me of that time of no fear.
I GIVE UP all fear Lord, even when I can't see the answer to so many things assailing my senses.
I give up trying to be in control.
I give up listening to the doomsayers.
I give up my cares and concerns to You Lord.
I GIVE UP my will and receive Your will.
I GIVE UP!

|Something is on my mind.
I can't tell just what kind.
It's like a longing to hear,
From the King of kings,
and standing with open ears.
In anticipation and expectation,
All distractions must be turned down.
Given over to the One who truly knows,
What lies ahead today, tomorrow, and beyond.
Even as I write this the attention turns to Him.
Help is on the way, from a power that outstrips all circumstances, time frames, and windows.
Things that look insurmountable with my eyes,
Are now becoming dimmer and less daunting.
TVS and games are set aside as the light rises.
The Light of the world that is spoken of in John 1:6-7. The One who bore our sins on the cross.
Is on the throne at the right hand of God, interceding for you, me, Rhonda, Steve and all.
I see now it's upon Him we must wait and call.
Can you feel it beloved as you read this?
Can you feel what burdens you bear easing?
Can you see in your heart, mind and soul,
The Lord Jesus interceding for your needs.
Can you feel peace returning where dis-ease once dwelled?
Something is on my mind,
I now see just what kind.
The presence of the Lord is in this place,
He is taking over troubling spaces.
The Light of the World is shining through!
Can you feel it beloved?
That Love that knows your needs.
Those well placed spiritual seeds,
Changing your view and returning it to,
The Light of the World shining through you!

|#stevejoggingforJesus Lord today I thank You for the gift of running. No miles or time recorded as the run week of 7-15/21 begins. A wave offering to You Lord lain at the foot of the cross.
Lord I pray for the staff, residents, and future residents here at the Ridge. Pray for health, provision, and peace in the families and among the community as a whole.
Lord I pray for the mechanisms and machinery that keeps this place maintained and for the extra protection of maintenance as they go about their day by day service requests.
I especially pray in earnest Lord for a swift resolution to the Coronavirus that is still active at this time. You are the Great I Am and it's in Jesus name I pray. Amen and amen.
|Lord thank You for still being in control.
This virus does still roll.
Yet Your hand is still at work.
Medical procedures are needed at every turn.
Only to be cancelled by administrators.
State's, cities and towns are back in lockdown.
But You oh Lord are working to turn things around.
Our earthly eyes may not see what You're doing Lord, but it's true You are the bringer of hope.
Your Word brings this before our eyes. The hope that surpasses all our trials and tribulations.
Virus or other obstacle that stands in our way shall be overcome because there is still hope!
Here and now the world is in turmoil.
Oh things seem bleak and unsurmountable.
Pleased are our hearts as we know He's here.
Every trouble that comes along is fleeting.
To them God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles the glorious riches riches of his mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. Col 1:17
HOPE comes in the morning and in this promise from the Lord we can face tomorrow with all confidence that we are not alone.
