My Guide is in Control

Image
Proverbs 3:5-6 (KJV) "Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths."

Though changes rage and life is wild
I know in Whom I can securely rest
He rules the waves that toss me about
He authored and controls the test

My Savior speaks above the wind
He says, "My child, trust in Me."
I gladly bow in submission then
And say, "Lord, I rely on Thee."

The insecurity from all the changes
Beckons my heart to fear
But I find through the comfort of His word
That He is ever near

I will not fear, I will not doubt
I know He is in control
I will enjoy His guiding hand
And rejoice in the trial of my soul

For it is an exciting experience
To see Him accomplishing His will
Realizing how He was preparing the way
And positioning me His plan to fulfill

The Lord gives, and takes away
He leads, He guides, one step at a time
Sometimes it's tough, but if I surrender
He moves in m…

Be Not Afraid of Sudden Fear

Image
“Be not afraid of sudden fear, neither of the desolation of the wicked, when it cometh. For the LORD shall be thy confidence, and shall keep thy foot from being taken.” Proverbs 3:25-26 KJV
Be not afraid of sudden fear. The Master is still in control! No need to fear all nature’s roar; For He orchestrates life as a whole.
For He Who made the oceans wide, Need not that one instruct Him. He spoke the world into existence, And controls life’s rhyme and rhythm.
When media predicts, and others cry, “Panic, freak out, you need to fear! The end is coming, and death is nigh!” We must remember that God is near.
Keep sound wisdom and self-control. Yea, remember Who is on the Throne! There is no great evil or sudden fear, That has caught Him by surprise: not one!
If only we knew, what He so lovingly does, On a daily basis for our protection, When we come so close to death unknowingly, Maybe then, we would trust His direction.
For nothing can harm us that trust in God, Without His loving permission. So why get in a tiz…

Christ in Me

Image
“What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?  For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.” 1 Corinthians  6:19-20 KJV
“In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.” Ephesians 2:22 KJV
“To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:” Colossians 1:27 KJV
Christ in me; Oh, Glorious thought! What hope of Glory and comfort brought! What peace and joy His presence brings! For fear and sorrow hath taken wings.
My Savior came in to abide, The very moment I did decide, To turn from sin and seek His face, To fully trust in His love and grace.
And now I am a temple built up grand, To show the mighty working of His strong hand. A new creature in Christ, my sins washed away. My life He has changed in such a miraculous way!
No more to fea…

My God Rules all Nature

Image
Isaiah 40:28 “Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding.”
My God rules all nature My God made the sea My God spoke the world into existence My God cares for me
He not only knows all things But reigns as true Supreme Why then should I worry No matter how things may seem
There is no searching of His understanding His wisdom far exceeds The world's feeble intelligence And He's the One who meets my needs
I'm so thankful that I know Him I'm so glad that He's my friend Oh, how reassuring His love That through eternity will not end
Do you know Him today? You can!

He is!

Image
He (Jesus) is my comfort in pain...

My help in adversity...

My hope during depression...

My calm during anxiety...

My life when I feel I can't go on...

My love when I feel unlovable...

My shield while fighting the battle against wrong...

My strength when I am weak...

My song when I am joyful...

My peace when life is tempestuous...

My friend when I feel forsaken...

My gain when I face a loss...

My security when things are unsure...

My guide when I don't know the way...

My rock when I need something sure to cling to...

My Father, My Savior, My God...

He is my everything!!!

Psalms 18:2
“The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.”


He Holds Tomorrow

Image
I don't have to fear or dread tomorrow, because I have Him.

Why fear what my loving Father has planned?
Has He not always done what was best for me?
Has He not always provided in time? (I say, Yes, without fail!)

Has He ever abandoned or neglected me? (Never)

Because of His great faithfulness, unsurpassed provision, and boundless love for me, I need not fear at all.

Because of His infinite power and control of the situations of life, I need not dread anything that may come.

I simply lean on His strength and understanding, and throw myself fully upon His mercy and grace.

For I trust Him to always do right...

Yes, He will do right...just as before...

For He can do no wrong!

Psalms 17:8-9 "Keep me as the apple of the eye, hide me under the shadow of thy wings, From the wicked that oppress me, [from] my deadly enemies, [who] compass me about."

Psalms 5:11-12 "But let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice: let them ever shout for joy, because thou defendest them:…

Look and Live

Lean and learn, look and live
All my worries to Him I'll give
For the answers I will read
And His words, I'll strive to heed
For I know not what is best
But His knowledge has passed the test
Within His care I safely yield
He is my strength, He is my shield
Oh forgive me, Lord, I pray
For not trusting You each day
Give me strength to do Your will
And my mind with peace now fill


Note from the Author:
Thank God for providing us a written copy of His Word, the KJV Bible. We can read His words and apply them to our lives. He has the answers for all of life's questions if we but take time to ask and listen. God's Word has passed the test of time, and continues to strengthen believers today. Thank God for His Word!

Real Christians

“Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.” 2 Timothy 2:19 (KJV)
Something I have seen over and over as I deal with lost people regarding things of God, is that they know “Christians” who are no different than themselves. They go to the same parties. They drink the same boos. They smoke just as much. Their language is no different than the average Joe. There is no noticeable difference in the way these “Christians” act and how the lost person acts. This is a serious misrepresentation of the name “Christian.” And in nearly all of these cases, the so-called “Christians” they are referring to are people who claim the name of Christ but are not truly regenerated. I am an American. I love America. I am proud to be called an American, but our nation is definitely full of people who are confused as to what it means to be a “Christian.” There are people of all …
