Do you truly trust that God is within you?
That He is waiting to work in you, and through you?
By working within, He will deepen your soul
From shallow wants to a deeper desire
For Him, and for His wishes.
By working through, he will embolden your vision
From shallow thoughts to an active desire
For Him, to do as He wishes

As God desires -- Ahhhh, to follow him!

For which I heartily apologize!

My husband broke his hip in early November,
and he is still not home.
But, SOON, we have been informed,
SOON he will be able to return!  

So, I ask for your prayers.
for patience, for healing, 
and for God to bless ALL of us, 
(which, of course includes you, yourself!)

Thank you for waiting, for continuing to check.

Boldly Proclaim

As weak as I am, He chose me—
That I would tell others of Him.
As a clay pot, I was fragile
And easily crushed by the world.
Yet, God within me, by His choice,
Granted me love, and His power,
Therefore, I will boldly proclaim,
“Jesus is LORD!  He is Savior!”

Most fears are like vampires.
While with us, they will suck us dry,
Cause us to perish, take over our lives.
But, when the Son’s light shines on them,
They vanish with the darkness
And we are whole once again.
So, bask in the light of the Son,
Never allowing a fear to approach.
Never succumb to the power of dark,
 Find the light of His way in His word,
And let His light shine through you

A Turned-On Believer

Be a “Turned-On Believer”
Then people might ask,
“What is that scent you are wearing?”
Being “Tuned in” to Jesus
Means people will see
Just what it means to be Christian.

Whether “tuned in” or “turned on”
Others may join you
When they see how much you have changed.
When you’re “easy” on others,
You’re acting like Christ.
How has God’s love seemed to change you?

When your love is apparent
You show you’re chosen
For purpose of service to all.

Armor of God

Part of God’s armor is the sword of the Spirit.
Why leave it at home, to rust in a corner?
Why hold a short dagger (few verses remembered),
When God offers us the sword of His Word,
Constructed to take all evil away?

When willingly taking all help you’re offered,
Each weapon God issued to help you succeed,
Then, when it’s all over, except for the shouting,
You’ll still be standing, praising the Father
For this sword, His Word, protecting from harm.

                              Ephesians 6:10-20

The Mountain

That’s OK, God … I think I know the way.
I see that huge mountain ahead of us.
That path looks real easy… I’ll start out here.
But … where did it go? The path disappeared!
Was there an easier way to the top?
One down below that was hidden from me?
Or … wait … was that mountain even for me?
Stop laughing at me, Lord.  Here is my hand.
Please, will You lead me as I walk by faith?
When eyes remain on You, I’ll not stumble.
