Then Sings My Soul Saturday

I'm joining Amy at Signs, Miracles and Wonders for Then Sings My Soul Saturday. Be sure and visit all the participants for a wonderful listening and learning experience!

I've had an exciting and busy past few weeks, and God has been with us every step of the way!

When I think of myself, how small and insignificant I am in this world, I sometimes wonder how God--with all He has in His control--even finds time for me and each and every one of us.

But, He does. He loves, He cares, He is my joy and hope every day of my life.

Emmanuel, God With Us

Since I'm moving today, I wanted to let you know that I'll be without internet service until Wednesday.

Since I'm not exactly sure when the cable/internet company will be coming, I decided to postpone the Weekly Memory Verse until next Monday.

Keep all of us in your prayers--for a safe move with no injuries or incidents!!

Thankful Thursday

Thankful Thursday at Truth 4 the Journey

I'm joining Sonya at Truth 4 the Journey for Thankful Thursday!! Be sure to visit her and see what all the participants are thankful for this week!!

Here are my 5 "thankfuls" for this week:

  • I am thankful that my daughter, who suffers from severe asthma seems to be on the road to recovery, without too much medication, and did not require hospitalization. This is the time of year that she has been hospitalized for this three years in row!
  • It snowed just a little bit yesterday--just enough to cover the trees with a dusting of snow. When I came home from work there was a bright red male cardinal sitting in a tree right outside my bedroom window. This was a beautiful sight--the brilliant red of the cardinal against the white of the snow. I'm thankful that I was in the right place at the right time and was able to see this--not quite quick enough to get a picture though!
  • I am thankful that after this snow changed to a bit of freezing rain, my son arrived home from work safe and sound, without incident.
  • On Monday, I had the opportunity to hear a young woman who is a missionary speak. She is leaving for East Asia in July for a two year term there, coming home for a short period and then returning. She talked of the culture there and what she will be doing which deals mainly with human trafficking. I'm thankful that I had this opportunity and that God used this time to open my and several others eyes to this horrific tragedy.
  • And I am thankful for cardboard boxes!! I have used many of these packing during the past few weeks, and I am so grateful for them! Just makes my life a little bit easier at this point!
And there you have it!! My 5 "Thankfuls" for this week!!

Listen and Obey

If you've been following along, you'll know that I've been reading Stormie Omartian's book, "The Power of Praying Through the Bible."

This week, we're on the third chapter which involves listening to God.

The section of Scripture to "read and consider" is Genesis 6:9-22, and the particular verse that Stormie has zeroed in on is:

Noah was a righteous man, blameless among the people of his time, and he walked with God....Genesis 6:9

I can think of many in the Bible who "walked with God". But, Noah does stand out as example of a man who not only "walked with God", but he listened and obeyed to exactly what God was telling him to do.

Now, I can just imagine this: Noah going about his daily business, and God comes to him and says, "Noah, I want you to build an ark." Poor Noah! He doesn't even know what this means!

And Noah listened to God and obeyed exactly to what God was telling him to do, down to the last cubit!

I've always thought about the ridicule and the jokes that Noah and his family must have endured. Yet, Noah continued with his task to its completion, trusting that God told him to do this, and he must listen and obey.

God had looked upon His creation, and I'm sure He was saddened. All was corrupt with the exception of Noah and his family. They were the only ones standing firm and faithful in God. They stood alone for God in the culture they were living in.

Many centuries later, Jesus describes this time:

"For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving up in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man."........Mattthew 24:38-39

Jesus is giving a warning here about going about daily duties, our "to-do lists", letting the busyness of our day to day lives overtake us and prevent us from stopping and listening to God.

How easy it is to start our day with a "Thank You, God , for this day.....continue on with OUR list of requests from HIM, and then just move on.....move on without stopping to listen to what God is requesting from US.

This is what Stormie says in her book:

"What would our lives be like if we took the time not only to talk to God but to listen to Him as well? What if we determined to obey what He tells us to do--no matter how much our society might scoff at us?

Do you want to walk with God? Then in your prayer time, listen carefully for His voice. You may hear Him leading you in a new direction, with a new purpose, and with courage you never knew you had!"

Walking with God: Live each day with an awareness of God's presence, depend upon God's faithfulness even through times of doubt, talk with God, listen for the sound of His voice and then obey--knowing that if God has set you to a task, He will see you through to its completion.

My Father,

I come to You today to ask You to help me be a better listener. Help me not only to talk with You, but then to listen for Your voice throughout my day and obey Your instructions for my life.

Help me not to be drawn by the distractions of this world, but to lean on You for my strength and courage in doing whatever it is You are asking of me. Help me to be a person who says "YES" to you immediately, without hesitation, without even considering what "others" may think or say.

Call me to the task, Lord, and I will follow. I know that You will give me the strength, the building blocks, the courage to finish to completion whatever You call me to in this life.

Lord, You know this is a busy time in my life right now. I get so confused sometimes even knowing what to do first. Help me to remember to stop and say, "Lord, what is it that You want me to do today?" and then to listen for Your voice and obey.

Help me to stand firm in this world, standing true in my faithfulness to You, just as you stand firm and faithful to me.

In Your Son's Name, I pray,

Weekly Memory Verse

It's Monday, so this is the day we see how well we did our memory verse for this week. Now, you all know that I have been very busy this week moving things, so I hope I come through with this. I'm certainly going to give this a try:

For you have been bought with a price: therefore glorify God with your body.....1 Corinthians 6:20 (NASB)

Well, I'll admit that I knew this verse before, but as I've said I have difficulty remembering where in Scripture verses are located. I've gotten this correctly, so my goal was met!

We certainly have been purchased for a price--an amount we could never afford to pay on our own. This price is the very life of Our Savior, Jesus Christ. God sacrificed His own Son for us! When I think of this, sacrificing my child for someone, I just become overwhelmed.

I tend to think of this sacrifice in the love that I feel for my own son--how full and complete this is and how I would feel if he were the one I had to offer as a sacrifice.

I imagine that God looked at this world and was saddened beyond belief--the beauty of His creation, and there is man going his own way, very few following God's Will for them.

And at just the right time, He sent His Son to save us--so that we can have a closer relationship with Him, come to Him with anything and everything, seek His forgiveness, His mercy and grace.

Since we were purchased at such a great price, God has asked us to glorify Him with our bodies. Our bodies are God's temples, and we need to take care how we treat and display our temple to others.

This includes what we put into our bodies, how we clothe our bodies, our words, our actions, our love for others. All of these are to be done to glorify God, not ourselves.

We are the bride (yes, even the men!) and Christ is the bridegroom. The bridegroom anxiously awaits His bride. What would we like the bridegroom to see and hear and feel about us?

I try to remember this when I know that something is not pleasing to God. Would this glorify God in my own temple, my own body? If the answer is no, then I know that this is something I should not be doing or partaking of.

I found a video that I would like to share with you. It is called "My Heart, Your Home". When I watched this video, this specific verse came to my mind. If my heart is God's home, shouldn't I be using my heart to be the very best place for Him to dwell? Shouldn't I be doing everything I can to glorify God in everything I do so that others may see Him through me?

Listen to God speak to you while you watch the video. I know He spoke to me.

So, now we'll move on to next week's memory verse. Let me get my "Embracing the Word" cards, and here we go!!

This week is the ace of diamonds, and it is a bit longer than last week's:

If my people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from Heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land......2 Chronicles 7:14 (NASB)

We are using Mr. Linky, so if you are participating by posting on your own blog, please link up and leave a comment!!

Thankful Thursday

Thankful Thursday at Truth 4 the Journey

I'm joining Sonya at Truth 4 the Journey for Thankful Thursday. It's easy to do--just list 5 things that you are thankful for this week. Please be sure to visit Sonya and all those participating to see our "thankfuls". Perhaps this is the week you'll decide to join in with us!

I have so much to be thankful for this week, I don't even know where to begin.

  • My most amazing thankful is the home that God has provided for me--restoring to me what had been lost in the past. It is quite the story. I know some of you have already read this, but if you haven't you might want to stop by warmHarte and take it all in. This is God in action and showing up in a big way to answer my prayer of 5 years. There are enough thankfuls in this alone to make up for more than 5.
  • It's very windy out today, and I am thankful for the wind. I've always loved the sound of the wind, the power held in the wind:

When He thunders, the waters in the heavens roar; He makes clouds rise from the ends of the earth. He sends lightning with the rain and brings out the wind from his storehouses....Jeremiah 10:13

  • I am thankful that God has renewed emotions in me. God created us with emotions, and mine were "on hold" for many years. I am now able to cry tears of joy (yes, sometimes sorrow) freely--tears that were held inside for so long.
  • I am thankful for the unusually warm days that we've been experiencing lately. It feels like Spring outside. I know that this won't last, but I'm enjoying the warmer weather while it is here. It is so nice to just put on a light jacket to go to work, instead of the usual bundling of heavy winter coat, scarf, mittens and the scraping of the ice from the car while waiting in the freezing cold for the car to warm up!
  • And, I am again thankful for geese!! I mentioned geese a few weeks ago--how I saw them flying over the parking lot at my work, standing there watching them line up in their "V" formation. As I was leaving what will soon be my new home, there was a flock of geese flying overhead again--honking noisily, totally disorganized. And I stood and watched them in what will soon be my driveway--lining themselves up in their "V" formation. And as I watched them, I was completely overtaken by the VASTNESS of God's love for me.
And there you have it!! My 5 thankfuls for this week. As I said, the first one alone is much more than 5, and I am completely amazed by how well God knows me, inside and out, and saw to the all the details of fulfilling my desires in answering my prayer. I didn't even ask for some of them, but He knew and blessed me with more than what I was praying for. Thank you, God!!


Wednesday, February 11, 2009


Praise is always on my lips, in my heart for my God, but this week has been the week that God has chosen to start restoring to me things in my life that I have lost in the past.

And I just had to share this song with you:

Weekly Memory Verse

It's Monday, so that means that it is Weekly Memory Verse time!!

Let's see how well I did from last week's verse:

Behold, the Lord's hand is not so short that it cannot save nor His ear so dull that it cannot hear....Isaiah 59:1

Not too bad--forgot the "is" before His ear, and a punctuation mark, too!! But, I remembered the important parts and also where the verse is located in the Bible!!

I looked into this verse somewhat, and it actually is referring to the Israelites more or less challenging God. They are in dire straits, have again turned their ways from God. And they are asking God, "If You have the power to change things, then why aren't you?"

So, in looking at this verse from an Old Testament perspective, before the Good News of Jesus and salvation, it carries a different message than the one that I receive from reading it.

When I read this verse, what I am hearing is that God is always with me, always ready to guide and direct me in every situation that presents itself. His arms are long and strong and powerful. By praying to Him about a situation, He hears us. His ears are acute and listening for us to speak to Him, to bring Him our praises, our problems--even the smallest ones.

The whole context of the verse changes from the Old Testament to the New Testament. Why? Because Jesus, Our Savior, closed the gap that was created between man and God.

We can come to God with everything and anything. He already knows, and He's just waiting for us to talk with Him, spend some time with Him.

Come near to God and He will come near to you.....James 4:8

So, we'll move on to next week's verse which happens to be the ace of hearts!!

Here we go:

For you have been bought with a price; therefore glorify God in your body......
1 Corinthians 6:20 (NASB)

We're using Mr. Linky this week, so if you're posting on your own blog about the Weekly Memory Verse, please remember to come back and link up!!

"Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. God is Spirit, and his worshipers must worship in spirit and in truth."......John 4:23-24

Courtesy of Ben Steed at

Come join me in worship of OUR LORD AND KING!!!!

Here, as I worship You
I long to be more honest
Long to be more free
I long to be more real
Long to be transparent
As you see my true intentions

Beyond this bended Knee
Beyond the words I speak
Beyond the songs I sing
Hear My Worship
All that my heart can bring
This is my offering
Jesus my Holy King
Hear my worship
Hear my worship

I long to have more faith
I long to be more faithful
Here before Your throne
I wait to see Your face
Awaiting in your presence
Waiting just for you to hear me

A day of Sabbath rest, as our Lord commanded. I'm spending the day in worship of My LORD.
How about you?

Walking in the Garden With God

Last week, I did a post about a book I'm reading, "The Power of Praying Through the Bible" by Stormie Omartian. I decided to do a post every Friday sharing what I'm learning through this book, chapter by chapter.

If you didn't get a chance to read last week's p
ost, check it out here.

This week the verses to read and consider are Genesis 3:1-9. The main verse that is concentrated on is:

"Then the man and his wife heard the sound of the LORD God as he was walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and they hid from the LORD God among the trees of the garden. But the LORD God called to the man, 'Where are you?'".......Genesis 3:8-9

I have been in places that I imagine may be like that first garden....places full of the sounds of nature, overflowing with plants and trees that I have never seen before, even the timing seems just perfect!! And all of these combined bring on an intense longing to to have what Adam and Eve had--a nice, peaceful walk with God, a time to talk and listen to Him.

There are still places like this, but our world is changing--changing on a daily basis. Everything changed a long time ago when the very first two people created by God gave up the pleasure of having a close, intimate relationship with God to pursue their own interests.

What happened after they ate that fruit? They heard God walking in the garden. He was looking for them to enjoy their usual time together. But they were ashamed to see God, ridden with an overwhelming guilt, so they hid from Him.

Adam and Eve lost their very close, intense relationship with God on that day, and we're struggling to regain that closeness ever since.

God didn't hide from them. He was looking for them. They are the ones that hid from God in their shame, guilt and fear.

God knew exactly where they were, but He wanted them to know that He wanted to continue in this relationship He had established with them. He knew of their sin, but He came to keep His walk with them regardless of this.

We could easily place the blame on Adam and Eve for our own lack of a close relationship with God. We could say to ourselves, "But, look!! Adam and Eve ruined our chances for this a long time ago!"

But, here I have to stop and think before I criticize them unfairly. How many times have I repeated their exact same mistake by making choices that draw me away from God's presence?

Yes, I have experienced that intense fellowship with God, and I wish I could hold on to these moments and keep them with me--always having this feeling in my life. And then just hours later--what happens? I make a choice that draws me away from God, to turn my back on Him. In doing this, I'm really sabotaging my relationship with God.

Instead of waiting patiently for His soft whisper, I make a choice that goes completely against God's will for me.

Most of the time, I have to admit, this occurs when I insist upon keeping to my own schedule for my life instead of trading this in for God's agenda for my life. And then my relationship with Him seems distant rather than close.

I want to keep these close moments in my life--having them with me always. Prayer is our way of communicating with God. The power in our prayer life flows out of God, not out of me.

This is His power, not mine. I won't experience God's power in my life if I'm being insistent upon my own agenda and my own schedule. I need to trade in my dreams for my life for God's dreams for my life--His plans and purposes for me, not mine.

If I fill my life with my commitments, instead of God's commitments, I'll miss out on those special times with God when He is holding me close and filling me with His presence.

The world we now live in will relentlessly fill us with other "things we have to do", if we don't plan and hold sacred our time with God, intentionally building our lives around our times to walk and spend time with God.

It's important to remember, that just as He did with Adam and Eve, God will come looking for us, calling to us: "Where are you?"

And, I'm thinking how this would make God smile if I were waiting expectantly for His visit, eager for Him to take a walk with me--instead of Him having to come search for me and calling out:


My Father,

I am longing to always have a close relationship with You. Help me to not be drawn by the distractions of this world so that You have to come searching for me. Let me instead be waiting expectantly for You to come to me, as I know You will. Help me to experience Your love and power in every moment of my day.

Enable me to hear Your voice through all the clamor around me, calling to me,"Walk this way, my child. Come walk and talk with me". And let me answer to You instantly, without a moment's hesitation. Give me the strength and courage to always say "yes" to You, my Lord.

God, I know I am a sinner. Help me to seek You and not hide from You. You already know all about me and still You love me. Help me to come to You quickly with my shortcomings, my failures, my sins--seeking Your forgiveness through Your Son, Jesus.

Help me to keep my walk with You close and constant, always seeking You for every decision and making Your choice and not my own.

In Jesus' most precious and Holy Name I pray,


If you have read this today and been touched in any way, I urge you to visit us at "The Lighthouse of Prayer" so that we can pray with you. I'm heading off to there now to offer my prayer for an area in my life in which I'm not 100% leaning on God.

Thankful Thursday

Thankful Thursday at Truth 4 the Journey

I'm joining Sonya at Truth for the Journey for "Thankful Thursday". Being thankful is a wonderful thing and helps us to focus on the positives of our lives instead of the negatives.

Stop over and visit Sonya, see what everyone is thankful for this week!! Maybe this is the week that you'd like to join in and share what you've been thankful for during the past week. All you need to do is list 5 things that you are thankful for. Surely, we all have at least 5 "thankfuls"!!

Here are my "thankfuls" for this week:

  • I'm thankful for the series my Small Group is studying--"The Life You've Always Wanted" by John Ortberg. I'm learning so much about the life that God wants me to live and enjoy.
  • I'm thankful that I have finally made the commitment to start exercising. I don't like to exercise, and I have been putting this off for a long time. This is something I need to do, and I'm hoping that it will energize me. Maybe I'll be able to get up off the floor and visit some other posts after this exercise session. And, I'm hoping that instead of dreading exercise that I'll come to like and look forward to this!
  • I'm thankful that I didn't have to scrape ice from my car windshield this morning as I've had to do every other day this week.
  • I'm thankful that even though I slid through an intersection in some of this ice that no other car was coming in the opposite direction, and I arrived to and from work safely.
  • And, I am thankful that I finally learned how to knit bobbles after many, many attempts and that I was able to do this without getting frustrated. Much patience involved in this one!
  • I have to add one more beyond the 5!! I am thankful for I love to create wordles, and I just had to do one tonight. I used my previous post, and here's how it looks:
Wordle: Untitled

It's a little small, but I think if you click on the picture, it will enlarge so you can see it more clearly.

Have a very thankful day!!

Weekly Memory Verse

It's Monday, so it's time for our Weekly Memory Verse. I've not been feeling well this week, but I tried to memorize this as well as I could. And luckily, this is a verse that I already knew.

My own problem is not knowing the verse, but remembering where it is in the Bible so that I can find it easily!! So, I'm going to make a more concentrated effort to not only remember the Scripture but where it is located!!

So, here we go with my typing out the memory verse from last week:

But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you...Matthew 6:33

As I read and pondered on this verse, the first few words that "popped" out to me were "seek", "kingdom" and "righteousness".

Seek means to me to pursue with a heart and mind that is open to change. I am not meant to stay where I am at this present time in my journey with God, but to ask and receive His instructions and guidance as to where my spiritual walk is to lead me next.

Am I to stay where I am at this given moment, Lord, is this a time of rest and reflection for me; or are you moving me into the next step of drawing me closer to You, serving You? I can only learn what God has in store for me by asking Him through prayer with the knowledge that He will answer me, led me, guide me and direct me in my path.

Then I came to the word "kingdom"--HIS Kingdom. And I'm thinking, is God's Kingdom for me and me alone? No, His Kingdom is all of us. Am I meant to seek and pursue after God's Kingdom alone? Again, the answer is no. A kingdom is not made up of one King and one person. There is only ONE KING and many who serve Him.

This then brings me to the thought that we need to "seek His Kingdom" (His guidance and His direction for our lives) together--united as one spirit in His body.

God did not intend for us to go it alone. He has given us one another to uplift, support, encourage one another in our walk with Him. These people are our spiritual family--those that God has surrounded us with, not only to encourage and love us, but to hold us accountable in our every day lives.

Then I move on to "righteousness". I looked up the definition of righteousness, and this is what I found:
acting in accord with divine or moral law; free from guilt or sin.

When this verse is saying "and all these 'things' will be given to you", it is not referring to the material things in our lives. This verse is referring to the divine intervention of God in our lives, living and behaving as God wishes us to.

To put it briefly, this is what all of this combined means to me:

Pursue God's Will in your life through prayer with Him. Invest your time and your resources in others who are members of His Kingdom, bring others to His Kingdom through not just your own efforts, but a combined effort of our united
spirits in Him. Then you will receive His reward--living as God wishes us to, within His moral law and guidelines--and the best reward of all--eternal life spent with Him in Heaven.

What did this verse say to you this week? Please leave a comment telling us what God has spoken to you regarding this verse during the week.

I know that some of you are posting on your own blogs regarding the "Weekly Memory Verse". I'm trying to get a Mr. Linky so that we can all "link up" and see what God has been talking to us about this week.

Until I do, please leave a comment saying that you have posted on your own blog so that we can all visit one another.

Now, we'll move on to next week's verse which happens to be the ace of clubs from my "Embracing The Word" deck of cards! Oh, another good one! I'm just loving the surprise element in these cards. I don't look to see what's ahead--just wait until today and then discover the verse along with all of you! Are you ready?

Behold, the LORD's hand is not so short that it cannot save; nor is His ear so dull that it cannot hear.......Isaiah 59:1

WOW!! God's already been talking with me about this!!

It's A Special Day Everywhere!

WOW!!! Today really is a special day!!

I just found out this morning that "The Power of Your Love" is in the top 100 Christian Women's Blogs!! Blogs were nominated by readers to Internet Cafe Devotions.

"The Power of Your Love" was in the top ten for "The Gathered Together Blog" category.

This is certainly not a contest, and there are no prizes to be given away. But, to be blessed with this award as we encourage and support others in the body of Christ means more to me than a trip around the world!!

And truly, we have already received the greatest prize of all--the hope, the freedom, the joy, the faith, the trust, the hope, the love, the forgiveness--all given to us by Our Lord. Could we even ask for more?

Thank you to all who nominated and supported us as we continue to grow together in Christ!!

Make sure and stop by the Internet Cafe to see all 100 blogs in 10 different categories. Visit them, show them your appreciation, and grow a little deeper in your relationship with God.

Super Sunday

I'm joining Peggy at Amazing Grace for Super Sunday!! Stop by and visit her and join in!! It's super, simple and it's Sunday!!

I found a graphic at HeartLight by Ben Steed that really impressed me today:

All things--our possessions, our money, our very lives will pass away. But, the Word of God has stood firm for thousands of years and will remain standing firm!

Stand firm in God's Word!! His promises are faithful!!
