A song of ascents.
I lift up my eyes to the mountains—
where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord,
the Maker of heaven and earth.
He will not let your foot slip—
he who watches over you will not slumber;
indeed, he who watches over Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.
The Lord watches over you—
the Lord is your shade at your right hand;
the sun will not harm you by day,
nor the moon by night.
The Lord will keep you from all harm—
he will watch over your life;
the Lord will watch over your coming and going
both now and forevermore.
I love how even reading the bible for all these years, you can still come across something that you have never read. What a beautiful verse to read as as arrive to Manila from Guam.
My favorite president said is best. As long as you have faith in our God, it’s never over!!!
As expected the day went better as the hours rolled by. Lot’s of honest conversations for Christ and got some things off my chest. Thats what i love about my relationship with Christ. ITS OPEN!!! Jesus doesn’t expect me to go thru life smiling. He understands that I will have good days and bad days. Jesus understands how i feel because he has walked on this earth!!! My savior is their for me to turn to when i am having a bad day. The main things i got from this day are:
Jesus walked on this earth and suffered more than i will ever suffer here. If my savior goes thru trials and tribulations, why should i be except from them?
As a Christian I am allowing Jesus to use me as a told to help others. Because of this by default i will ALWAYS be the giver. As far as being a a receiver; I have received everything I already needed when i accepted Jesus as my lord and savior. I don’t need anything more.
So use me lord to further your kingdom. In Good days and in bad, you are with me always.
I came across this on the internet. It was written by David Wilkerson. You can find the article here. It is definitely an uplifting read.
It’s been a frustrating morning. It’s one of those mornings that feels like nothing is going right. Everything that I would normally brush off is irritating me today. Here is just a sample of what I’m taking about today.
It’s frustrating being the giver always. When can I be the receiver? When will someone help me?
It’s tiresome being good and trying to make a difference when you don’t see results.
I have been patient long enough. When will it be my turn for success and good fortune?
It’s great that everyone thinks my life is good but in reality in stuck in the mud just spinning my wheels.
I know these thoughts will go away as the day moves on. Today will be a lot of prayer, reflecting, and readings. Update as the days moves on…
Thoughts would be appreciated.
My past shapes my future. All the happiness and pain of yesterday gives me the tools to survive tomorrow.
