Looking UP not out…


Looking up and not out…

Life gets me down you know… I might seem super confident and positive and I am but actually if I don’t keep my eyes on the right things it really gets to me a lot.

So much happening around us and I don’t want to avert my eyes. I want to see things and be a part of the solution and know where the help is needed and I want to be aware… I want to acknowledge people’s struggles and by that I honor them. (That’s what I like to do).

However, when I look AROUND it affects me a lot…. in so many ways… I can feel myself get dragged into the hopelessness… I don’t know any hope in this world in the end, except Jesus.

This week it really got me… blindness of the world, the inward nature of people, the wish that we could all look out more and do more to help, a crisis happens and we waken for a moment only to go to sleep again, and yes this is an overall generalisation.

How can we do more? What can we do? How can we personally contribute to change, to difference, to life, to humanity, to care about the people’s of the world and not just out own four walls, our own ‘SELF’?

There is so much out there that needs US!

Anyway God gave me a little reminder this week…. He reminded me to LOOK UP and not always OUT….

When I look out I feel overwhelmed, I feel what is the point, I feel like a drop in a bucket. If I was a rich woman I would become and activist and philanthropist, a care worker, a homeless shelter volunteer, a palliative care nurse, … and so much more….

I think it feels like the world is heading to the point of no return… sorry if you think that sounds depressing or negative…. but its my over all view. People don’t like to consider it or admit it… denial will make all the difference LOL. No I am not talking about ‘you’ the reader… I am talking about the ‘world’.. the ‘them’ we refer to!

YES I see goodness and glimmers of hope, little lights that flicker and sparkle… and then again it overwhelms me as my picture goes into wide-angle…

I must remember to keep looking UP!
I must remember the God of all hope!
I must remember His plan and the extraordinary lengths that he went to already to reach us.
I must remember that a drop in a bucket fills up drop by drop and that every single drop counts..

MyPsalms 64-66 ~ Letters to God


MYPSALMS   64-66

 

I’m reading through the Psalms and I’m writing my own MyPsalms… They are a wonderful way to connect God and I in real conversation. I hope you are enjoying them. Maybe you will feel inspired to write your own Psalms!

My desire is to find this place of intimacy, this place of desire and knowing, this place of dependence on Him in all things. My days are so full that I just blow through them with working full-time and all the requirements of a family and then I wonder did I talk to God at all during the day?”

MyPsalms 64-66 are below and the links to the album that will contain all of them =)

I hope you enjoy them. To keep up with them each day please go and visit my Facebook page

MyPsalm 64
Day 64
Read Psalm 64 in your own bible or here: Psalm 64

Dear Lord,

Lord I ask for your forgiveness, Father in your mercy and love for me please forgive my sin and remove it as far as the east is from the west.

I see that pride had invaded my heart in regards to particular issues that you know full well, and caused the passion you gave me to share your life and love with a perishing world to be tarnished.

I don’t know better than anyone. I don’t have the all the answers and I thank you that it’s only because you opened my eyes and awakened my heart, that I have been stirred to the mission you have placed in my heart.

Lord I humble myself before you, I bow before you, I bow before you, I exalt you and praise you Lord and I ask you to open my ears and my eyes up know your voice and the direction that I should take in order to complete the works that you have planned beforehand for me to do in your strength.

Please forgive me that the pride I allowed in that gave rise to judgment. I am weak frail… Human… I am nothing without you.

Lead me to the green pastures where I will commune with you and know you and be refreshed and hear with clarity the words of life that you would have me share with a lost and dying world.

In all I do I want to live for you. And for the things you have called me to do. Let my ears be highly attuned to your words of life and help me to relay with clarity your message of love to those who have no hope, no love, no entry into the eternity in which you desire for them.

In Jesus Name, Amen

Ephesians 2:1-10
And you He made alive, who were dead in trespasses and sins, in which you once walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience, among whom also we all once conducted ourselves in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, just as the others.

But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ by grace you have been saved, and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, that in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.

For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.

For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.

In Jesus Name, Amen

 

MyPsalm 65

Day 65

Dear Lord,

Please help me to live my life in such a way that I will have no regrets.

Lord help me live my life in a way that fulfills your plan and purpose for my and for all those around me too.

Lord help me to know you and know your ways. Help me to always anticipate your next move and to move with you.

I give myself to you afresh today I declare you are my Lord, my Saviour and my Hope for eternal life.

In Jesus Name, Amen

 

MyPsalm 66

Day 66

Read Psalm 66 in your own bible or here: Psalm 66

 

Dear Lord

 

In Your presence is peace… From Your presence flows rivers of peace, harmony and unity.

In Your presence is a place of safety, calm and hope and only truth exists in Your presence.

In Your presence is pure love and pure life nothing can defile them there.

In Your presence we can hear the answers that come from your heart and that will change our world.

In Your presence there is no pretense, there are no charades, there are no masquerades….

It’s all clear to you, the symptoms, the side affects, the causes, the outcomes.

You see the bare roots of the matters in our lives.

You love us and you long for us to come and accept all these gifts that you have prepared for us.

Your presence is the presents I need.

 

In Jesus Name, Amen

Amen

 

Hope you enjoy the journey!

Eternity matters!


#EternityMATTERS

Eternity life

Just think about it… for a minute….
It takes as much faith to believe in evolution as it does to believe in Creation.
Elegant and amazing designs show off God’s handiwork…
Did we come from nothing? I don’t thinks so.

Our creator has a design and He has a plan… and its good for all eternity.

Find His eternal plan for you!
Consider eternity!
Consider what it means…
Consider your future and destiny, the how’s and why’s of it all…
Then consider what you want, where you want to be..
Choose you this day whom you will serve… as for me and my household we will serve the Lord….
